Parents securing their newborn baby in a car seat.

Baby car seats

An essential purchase before your due date, you won't be allowed to drive your baby home from hospital without a car seat. Ideal for going from car to foot as most have a carry handle so your little one can carry on napping.

Pushchairs, prams and travel systems

Going for a walk with your little one lets you both enjoy some fresh air and helps them experience the outdoors. Until your baby is able to sit up by themselves (this usually happens when they're 3-6 months old), they'll need a pushchair where they can lie flat.

We couldn't live without it

To us this is so essential! 3 minutes to make a bottle at the right temp who doesn't love it! It's taken the stress out of making bottles up ready from cooled kettle water, waiting for water to cool all whilst my baby was screaming for food. The machine has taken the stress out of Bottle making!

Baby changing

Although daunting at first, you'll quickly perfect the art of changing your baby's nappy. A changing bag will keep your essentials organised and close-at-hand when you're out and about, and a changing mat will keep your baby comfortable during on-the-go clean ups. When you've finished changing baby, use a nappy bin to safely seal away germs and unpleasant odours.
