Baby Essentials for the First 3 Months: The Useful and the Absolutely Essential
The birth of your first baby is an incredibly exciting time! In the lead up to the birth, an oversaturated market encourages you to purchase a multitude of products that claim to be necessary and make life easier. This can get expensive and all too often new mothers end up with a lot of expensive items they just never use, so we’ve formulated a ‘New Baby Essentials Checklist’ just for you!
The most essential things a newborn baby needs in the first three months
1. Bodysuits and Sleepers
A baby’s clothing needs are all about simplicity and comfort. Bodysuits and sleepers minimise irritants such as abrasive fabrics, seams, and uncomfortable layers. They also make nappy changes a whole lot easier!
The Essential Baby Box’s range of bodysuits and sleepers are made with a soft and gentle organic cotton that is perfect for baby’s comfort, in sweet designs like the blushing Hunny Bunny.
2. Sleeping Bags and Muslin Swaddles
The purpose of muslin swaddles and sleepers is to provide a comfortable, warm, and secure womb-like experience whilst your baby sleeps.
Zip your little one into an adorable cotton sleeper in The Essential Baby Box winter collection, or wrap them snug into a muslin swaddle from the Essentials range. New to swaddling a baby? You’ll find useful information and a video on how to swaddle baby safely and comfortably, here.
3. Washcloths and Baby Wipes
Whether at home or on the go, you’ll be covered for all manner of messes! Washcloths even make great burping cloths and we bet you’ll be hard pressed to find a mother out there who hasn’t cleaned a high chair or table with a wipe!
The washcloths found in the Essential Baby Box are made of organic terry cotton and the Tooshies By Tom wipes are infused with soothing aloe vera and chamomile.
4. Nappy Balm
When a little one gets a touch of nappy rash, they really let you know. Soothe their tooshies and your sanity by always having some nappy balm on hand.
Ecostore nappy balm is a high-quality nappy balm. It’s all natural, fragrance-free, doesn’t stain, and is available from The Essential Baby Box.5. Bibs
Bibs are a mainstay for all mums, protecting baby clothes from milk, dribble and messy foods right from newborns to toddlers. It’s much less effort to change a bib rather than a whole outfit!
The Essential Baby Box organic cotton bibs are a sweet little addition to your baby’s essentials.
