After having two babies now, i’d like to think I have a good idea of a few items that you won’t necessarily think of when you start your long, long, list of items you need for your baby.

Here are a selection of my Amazon must haves for babies aged 0-3 months. Some of these items I have had for both children and some of these items I have had for just one or on my Amazon wish list.

Cool Mist Humidifier

This is a MUST HAVE. If I had to choose one product out of all my baby products (obviously not including milk etc) it would be this one. The sleep we all get when having this switched on in the room is so much better. It is incredible if you or your little one has a stuffy nose, bad chest or a nasty cough. IT really clears your airways. Air changes at night so you will find your little one coughing more. Having this switched on helps to stop that.

Jelly Cat Bookamazon baby must haves

Mole and Frankie are two completely different babies. One thing they have in common is their love for this book. The tails are easy for baby to grab and the fabrics are great sensory play. The story in the book is great to read to a toddler. For us, it has been the perfect toy they can both share.

Travel Cot With Net

If you have a newborn and you have a dog or a toddler, this travel cot will be a life saver.

For the moments when you need to nip to the loo or make a fresh bottle. You can place your baby in this travel cot with the zip up and be assured that your toddler will not be poking their hands into the cot and the dog will not be licking their face.

The cot is well designed too. It does not look like an eye sore in the room and it can fold up small when you need to store it. We kept ours in the living room.

MAM Bottle Dispenser 

amazon baby must havesThis is a new product I purchased for Frankie. Considering I formula fed Mole after a few months of breast feeding, not sure how I lived with out it.

This product comes with me everywhere. No more spilling formula all over me and looking like I have been on some sort of wild night out with a suspicious powder all over my clothes.

There is more than one compartment for multiple feeds rather than opening lot’s of different pots.

I even fill this milk dispenser up on days where I am at home all day, just to save that extra bit of time. I can make a bottle straight away.

Nappy Caddy

amazon baby must havesHave one of these in your living room and bedroom. Keep all the nappy changing essentials in there and a spare change of clothes for your baby. It just means that everything is tidy and organised but most importantly, you don’t have to keep going upstairs to change your baby.

Car Seat Rain Cover

amazon baby must havesI appreciate this product more now with a second baby. When your baby falls asleep in the car and you finally arrive at your destination, the last thing you want to do is wake your peacefully sleeping baby. If you have go the travel car seat pram system, then this product is great for our lovely British weather.

You can keep baby in the car seat whilst they are protected from England’s lovely rain. Rather than moving them over to the pram, potentially waking them, to use the rain cover.

Easy Changing Mat With Nappy And Wipe Compartment

amazon baby must havesNappy changing when you’re out and about has never been easier. All you have to do is reach into the changing bag and pull out this one product. Everything you need can be stored inside.

I hold Frankie in one arm and take this product with me to the changing room. So much easier than searching through the baby bag for wipes, bags and a nappy…sometimes a spare change of clothes too.

Natural Wooden Hair Brush Set

amazon baby musthavesThis product is on my Amazon wish list. A very Instagram friendly brush set. They look beautiful and all natural. But, the part that caught my eye was how they are cradle cap friendly.

Wardrobe Dividers

Iamazon baby must havesf you have not already got this product yet, you need to invest. When your baby is born, you are gifted with clothes in all sorts of sizes. Wardrobe dividers will help to keep your baby’s wardrobe organised. They make it easy when you want to grab an outfit out and all the clothes are already listed in the correct size.

A small product that is a must have which is very easily overlooked.

I hope you found some products here from Amazon, which you would not usually think of. Yet, are still must have products.

Can you remember the excitement as a child, when you visited the toy store?

Butterflies in your stomach, eyes hungry for whats inside, the gasps at every latest toy!

Smyths Toy Superstore

I really want that experience for Mole. Visiting Smyths Toy Store bought back so many happy memories, of what it was like to be that excited child again. I think it is easy to get caught up in the online world, getting delivered toys, that you can miss out on fun experiences with your child and what it is like to visit the toy store.

No attention should be put on age when one thinks of toys. There’s something about toys that nurtures happiness in people.

 

Smyths Toy Superstore have gone the extra mile to ensure that your toy store experience is rememberable!

Becoming a blogger has been one of the best decisions I have made. I love having a way to express my main passion in life. Parenting.

I have noticed a few regular perceptions of mum bloggers where I have admittedly, had a little chuckle to myself.

Mum blogger myths

“Mum bloggers spend no time with their kids”

Believe it or not, blogging has made me spend more time with Mole!

I love having my free time to play and admire her. I love watching her grow and being able to share our journey with the world.

I do my blogging as soon as she goes down for a nap or in the evening after she has gone to bed. Obviously if she is busy playing by herself I will check Instagram but what parent doesn’t nowadays?

If I wasn’t blogging I would most likely be back at work as I would have been desperate for something to keep my mind active.

“You’re only doing that so you can blog about it”

There has been times I’ll admit where I have done things so I can capture a photo. For example dressing Mole up in an outfit. But I think I would do that anyway even if I didn’t have a blog?Uk mummy blogger

I also feel like I get out more and do more with her. I love sharing what we get up to online. I would still take her to as many activity days as I can so she can look back on her childhood and be happy.

Products have been a big one where sometimes I have been influenced. When I can see everyone talking about a product and I have got one too and felt the need to also talk about it. (Only if it was good of course.)

“You get everything for free”

I wish haha. I am kindly gifted products in return for a review. Reviews take a lot of work. You can easily spend hours making sure your content is up to scratch to impress the brand.

Some companies offer discounts for their products too which is handy.

The majority of the time I have paid full price for a product and I will be talking about it because I love it so much and want everyone to try it!

“You think you are the perfect mum”

No. I think I am talking on behalf of the majority of mum bloggers here. We do not think we are the perfect mum but we definitely try our hardest to be the best mum possible.

My life can look very put together through pictures. House will be spotless, makeup flawless and no baby snot on my clothes but that is probably for less than 5 minutes I can assure you.

I mainly spend my days in my pjs with a standard mum bun, tripping up over Moles toys left all over the floor.

I will also blog about my experience so far with Mole and any advice I can give I will do. This is to help as many people as I can, not to show off that I think I am a mother know it all haha.
