Newborn Baby Essentials You’ll Need For The First Six Months

Raising a kid is one of the most gratifying things you can do with your life, but that doesn’t mean it’s a walk in the park. From figuring out how to work a car seat to sleeping schedules, there are a lot of tricky tasks for new parents to get to grips with. It can be very overwhelming, which is why we have put together a definitive new baby checklist to help.


Nursing bras - if you’re breastfeeding, nursing bras are a godsend! They are specifically designs for comfort and even have handy clips for easy access.

Bottles and accessories - If you’re bottle feeding, a selection of bottles with slow-flow teats is a great idea.

Feeding toys - Some babies are born with their first teeth. Others start teething before they are 4 months old. The first few months of your baby’s life will likely fly by, so it’s always a good idea to have some teething toys to hand! We offer a wide range of beautiful handmade designs.


Moses basket or crib - The NHS recommend your baby sleeps in the same room as you for the first six months. When your baby is tiny, moses baskets are a great option as they’re small enough to be kept both next to y our bed and cried around room to room. Bedside cribs are also an option!

Cot or cot bed - When your baby eventually grows out of their basket or crib, you can move them to a slightly larger cotbed. These have removable sides!

Fitted cot sheets & blankets - You’ll be changing the sheets a lot, so it’s worth stocking up on both sheets and baby bedding. Duvets, quilts and pillows are not recommend for babies under one year old, so blankets are a safer choice for those colder months.

Baby monitor - Of course, a baby monitor is an absolute must for peace of mind!
