We have two lovely ladies in our family that are expecting babies in December, this got me thinking about what I couldn’t live without when I first had Samuel so I compiled a list…
1. Video baby monitor – this is just amazing and the one thing I couldn’t live without it saves you running up and down the stairs constantly and potentially waking baby up.
2. Nursing pillow- wether your breast feeding or bottle feeding once you have one it will not leave your side.
3. Nursing chair – especially in the first few months this was invaluable not only is it a really comfy place for those night feeds, in the future you can use it for bed time stories!
Some of my favourites include: a cover for breast feeding, playing peek-a-boo, a make shift bib if you forget one, and of course the more conventional uses.
5. Bouncy chair- Samuel loved his bouncy chair especially the dangly owl that was hanging from it. It’s great for day time naps or if you need to pop baby down to go to the toilet, cook or eat!
