Preparing for the arrival of a new baby is incredibly exciting, but it can be overwhelming, too - especially for first-time parents. Naturally, you’re anxious not to forget any essentials but it’s all too easy to let your shopping list grow out of control.
Here at Unique Baby Store, we recognise that some items vary from family to family, whilst others are essential for every bundle of joy. We’ve created a straightforward list of the must-have items that every newborn needs to simplify your shopping list so that you can enjoy the preparation process without stressing out.
Creating the perfect nursery is one of the most fun and exciting parts of preparing for the arrival of your new baby. A good nursery should have a calm, soothing atmosphere so that both you and your child can bond in a relaxed and cosy environment.
Decorating a nursery is totally different to any other room in your home and many parents stress over getting it right. That’s why we’ve put together this handy list of ideas to help you create the perfect first bedroom for your new baby whether you’re expecting a boy, a girl or want to be surprised!
One of the most difficult parts of becoming a parent is the lack of sleep. Babies’ sleep needs certainly don’t match up with adult sleep schedules. To make things even more difficult, each child has their own sleeping pattern which may change from one week to the next.
However, although you can’t expect your baby to sleep through the night until they are at least three months old, there are things you can do to get your baby into a good sleep routine and maximise your own rest time.
For such small beings, babies sure do require a lot of equipment. You already most likely plan to buy - or have already bought - a carrycot, crib and Moses basket for your impending arrival, so do you really need a baby nest too?
Baby nests provide new parents with a myriad of benefits and help to ensure that your baby is as safe, cosy and comfortable as possible. This item is generally suitable from birth to six months of age, although some models can be used until your child is nine months old.
