The Ultimate Newborn Essentials Checklist For New Parents!

Being a new parent can be both exciting and overwhelming. It's a time filled with many new challenges and responsibilities, as you learn to care for and nurture your little one. As a new parent, you may find yourself feeling unsure about what exactly you'll need to buy for your new bundle of joy. Fear not, here at, we've compiled the ultimate checklist of everything you'll need!

  1. A safe and comfortable place for your baby to sleep, such as a crib or bassinet. We recommend the Red Castle Cocoonababy Nest, which  reassures babies and helps them adapt smoothly to life after birth. Fully respecting the medical recommendation to sleep babies on their back, the elongated semi-fetal position in the Cocoonababy allows babies who have lost their known landmarks in the womb of their mother to feel safe and content. Cocoonababy is an ergonomic cocoon designed for use in the cot during baby's first months as it reassures babies and help them adapt smoothly to life after birth.
  2. Nappies and wipes - check out our Pampers Babydry New Baby 22's Size 2-5Kg and WaterWipes Baby Wipes 60 pack x 12 for some must-haves!
  3. Clothing and blankets for your baby, including onesies, sleepers, and swaddles. A cellular blanket is essentials, as they're lightweight and breathable. You may like our Clevamama Cellular Baby Blanket 70 x 90cm, whilst the Grobag Pip Panda Print Newborn Snuggle Sleep Bag 1.0 Tog will keep your baby snug.
  4. A car seat for transporting your baby safely in the car. Try the Joie Every Stage - Ember (Birth - 12 Yrs), which is suitable from birth. It has side impact protection, which provides added security for the head, body and hips. It also features Guard Surround Safety panels which provide extra side protection and can be individually activated for extra room in the vehicle, and features a reinforced steel inner seat shell which  increases structural integrity.
  5. A stroller for walking and running errands with your baby. Don't forget some of our handy stroller accessories, such as the Babydan Stroller Cup Holder and Dreambaby Stroller Buddy EZY-Fit Phone Holder!
  6. A breast pump and bottles if you plan to bottle feed or pump breast milk. We recommend the travel-friendly, easy to use Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump 100ml with Suction Base & Lid
  7. A baby carrier or sling for keeping your baby close and hands-free, like the Ergobaby Embrace From Newborn - Pure Black, a compact and lightweight baby carrier that features easy buckling without the frustration of wrapping or excessive fabric.
  8. A baby monitor to help you keep an eye on your baby while they sleep or are in another room. Owlet Smart Sock Baby Monitor 3 tracks Baby’s oxygen & heart rate and tells you when baby needs you. It measures sleep trends and can be used from birth up to 18 months. 
  9. A few basic baby care items, such as a thermometer, nail clippers, and a nasal aspirator. For these, we recommend our Braun ThermoScan® 7 Thermometer with Age Precision®Dreambaby Premium Nail Clippers with Magnifier and Haakaa Silicone Nasal Aspirator
