Top 5 nursery/ new baby must haves.
Here are my top 5 nursery must have!
- Cot bed.
For me this is essential. Cots are amazing but I feel a cot bed Is a better buy as your not going to have to buy a bed. They can stay in a cot bed (transformed into a toddler bed) until there are aprox 4? They vary hugely in price so no matter what your budget there’s something for everyone. Plus going from a cot to a toddler bed to a single bed not only feels like a huge waste of money but a lot of hassle.
2. Full size wardrobe
However adorable these little child size wardrobes are you need to look forward to the future… small toddler wardrobes firstly will not hold enough clothes especially as the get older and the items become larger and secondly I don’t know about everyone else’s children, but I certainly wouldn’t want my little darlings to be able to empty there wardrobe full of clean ironed clothes all over the floor in a blink of an eye.
3. Microwave sterilizer & Formula dispencer. (This is mainly for bottle fed babies)
I must say I loved my microwave sterilizer You can take it anywhere and it only took like 5mins to sterilizer 4 bottle, teats & lids. The portable milk dispencer OMG I bottle fed my 2nd child after only around a month so this for me was amazing! You get 3 feeds worth if space it’s so easy to use although I would recommend buying a branded one as I brought a second (just as a spare) off the internet and it was rubbish if I hadn’t have known how good they should have been I would have never recommended it to so many people or used it ever again for that matter.
4. Reclineable highchair
Where do I start these are amazing for numerous reasons. I found when you begin weaning my children just didn’t sit right in a straight highchair so being able to recline just one notch help with feeding no end. Also bring a mum of two unfortunately my son didn’t always get undivided attention during feeds he probably should have. So being able to feed him (highchair fully reclined) at family meal times whist stil being with my eldest was a god send. Now that hes 18 months he still sometimes falls asleep during meals times so being able to lean him back whilst we all finish our meals just makes life easier.
5. Room and bath thermometer
I think every mum should have a bath thermometer. I still use mine every day. Although to be honest I’ve never felt the need for a room thermometer though.
This Tesco loves baby & toddlers one in particular is my personal favourite it’s only £5 and I’ve had mine for 3 1/2 years without any problems. Others on the market so exactly the same and are ridiculously expensive…. I just cannot Justify spending around £20 on something that does EXACTLY the same job.
I hope you have found these tips helpful, I hope to do a post soon about the top 5 things I feel are a total waste of money. If there is anything you would like me to post about inparticular or you have any question please leave a comment.
