Shopping for a New Baby Can Be Overwhelming!
There is just so much to choose from! You want to be totally prepared for your new little bundle of joy, but you don’t really know what to buy until they are here! So, it’s a bit of a conundrum. That’s why it’s always handy to listen to what other parents have found to be invaluable. Parents who have done the hard yards and know what works, and what doesn’t!
Some of the items on this list just might surprise you!
Ever been knocked back by a cafe to warm your babies bottle because ‘its against policy’, then frantically trying to figure out how you’re going to warm it? With this amazing new product you can warm bubby’s bottle anywhere, anytime with it being compact & light weight to take with you in the nappy bag.
To recharge simply connect to mains power. The portable bottle warmer warms safely and evenly.
I am bloody obsessed with cookies, if you didn’t already know by all the cookie content on Stay at Home Mum. These cookies are always in my little goodie bag for new mums to be! Because they are specifically lactation cookies, I feel as though this is just for the mum and the dad doesn’t get to indulge in these ones too. And they are soooo yum! Lots of delicious flavours and also catering to Dairy Free and Soy free Mamas!
The Baby Shusher is a unique, patented device that produces the sound of womb-like shushing. The soothing sound produced by the Baby Shusher has been proven to calm crying babies. Babies are calmed by the rhythmic and constant noise of Mum’s heartbeat from inside their mother’s womb.
This natural calming reflex can be triggered by the comforting sounds of Mum’s heartbeat, which have been proven to be as effective as a pacifier in calming crying babies. The Baby Shusher is easy to use and will automatically shut off after either 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the setting.
The Baby Shusher has over 16000 5-Star reviews!!!
It is mind-boggling just how many wipes you will go through a new parent. And not just for use on baby! Wipes are great for wiping spew off yourself, your car, your floor – and more! They get crayons off walls, they fix sticky fingers – they are just invaluable. That’s why buying them in bulk makes so much sense!
A forehead thermometer is a must-have before the baby is born. Because when you need it (and you will) – it is always at 3am when you can’t get a shop. These things take all the guesswork out of taking bub’s temperature to see if they are sick.
Promote your baby’s sensory development with the Inflatable Tummy Time Water Play Mat. This mat is 100% leakproof and is made from durable BPA free non-toxic PVC.

Sleep is the top priority for all members of the family when a new baby comes home. And the Tommee Tippee Dreammaker Baby Sleep Aid was scienfically desinged by top Sleep Scientists in the UK. It is a sound and light machine that relaxes your baby and encourages deep sleep.
The machine’s pink setting mimics the sound in the womb for newborns. The red light encourages the production of melatonin and is minimally stimulating so it won’t disturb babies when they are alseep. The machine has a pulsating glow that mimics the slow, deep breaths of relaxed sleep.

Suzy Giordano, affectionately known as “The Baby Coach,” shares her highly effective sleep-training method in this step-by-step guide to let both baby and parent enjoy long, peaceful nights. Full of common sense and specific tips, the Baby Coach’s plan offers time- and family-tested techniques to help any baby up to the age of 18 months who has trouble sleeping through the night.
Originally developed for newborn multiples, this sleep-training method worked so well with twins and triplets that families with singletons and older babies began asking Suzy to share her recipe for success, resulting in: regular feeding times; 12 hours’ sleep at night; three hours’ sleep during the day; peace of mind for parent and baby; and less strain on parents – and their marriage. This edition includes a new chapter on implementing the program with babies up to 18 months.
