What Is A Newborn Baby ‘Must-Have’ That You Would Recommend?

Newborn Baby Must-Haves!

Having had a newborn or two, you’ll realize that a lot of the newborn baby lists of ‘essential’ baby products are really just promotional product advertisements, and that not all things are really needed. What DID you find really useful when your baby was a newborn?

Let’s see what a range of Mum and Baby sites have to recommend as a must-have for newborn babies from their experience:

What Is A Newborn Baby ‘Must-Have’ That You Would Recommend?

Jodee from BabyBaby recommends:

BabyBaby Comforting Massage Oil

You don’t need to be a trained masseuse to massage your baby; gentle strokes, good intensions and all natural Comforting Massage Oil is all you need.  Comforting Massage oil is a mild blend of almond and avocado oils, packed with pure essential oils of Lavender and Mandarin, also known as the children’s oils, for their well documented benefits on child health and well being. Comforting Massage Oil is non greasy and light on the skin designed to nourish and soothe the skin and relax baby ensuring quality sleep and relaxation.  Bonding with Baby through Massage is priceless!

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

A baby Carrier, for sure! Can’t live without a baby carrier (or multiple numbers in my case 😉

Denise from Mama Moo recommends:

The Dandelion Duck Squeaker… stimulating touch, visual and hearing senses… super cute, super soft!

Kyra from Bubbalooba recommends:

Newborn nappies can get VERY messy (especially if you are using cloth!) so I recommend some biodegradable flushable liners – they can make the cleaning up process a lot easier 🙂

Kirsten from Mums Little Outlet recommends:

The Ellarroo Organic Cotton Baby ring sling – stylish to wear, extremely fast and easy to pop on. The tail is great for privacy whilst breastfeeding or protection from sun and wind. I have loved this sling with my newborn.

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

Like others have said, I’d recommend a versatile Ring Sling for a new mum to snuggle baby up close. Wonderful. Even better to show her how to use it with a doll, or a nearby baby! I’d also recommend keeping a bucket nearby so when baby is fussy, you can take off their nappy and dip their bum in, offering them the opportunity to do a wee or poo outside of their nappy. A great way to connect with your freshie, and that’s one less nappy change needed today…

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

Wipes and burp cloths. When I was pregnant I was given so many flannel cloths (over 20) and I remember looking at them thinking why do I need all of these? After my son was born I had to buy even more as he was a reflux baby. They are definitely a must have.

Laura from Cloth Nappy Co recommends:

Green Kids Huggalugs Nubies – especially for during winter. They keep baby’s legs warm and don’t need to be removed for change time.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

If you don’t intend to co-sleep, I would say a bassinet that you can keep next to your bed. I also think it’s well worth just borrowing one if you can. In the scheme of things, you don’t end up using them for a long time as bub will grow out of it by 5-6 months and they are quite bulky to store. Our son was baby number #12 to sleep in the bassinet we have, it’s been passed around everywhere. Our second child will actually be baby #15 to use it as it’s been off with two other families in between! Ours in on wheels, so it can just move around the house with me while baby is asleep. At night I love the reassurance of having a newborn next to me and listening to them breathing.

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed) recomends:

A swing seat, bouncer or rocker: that way you have somewhere to put baby down (without lying them flat on their back) so they can be with you in the kitchen while you cook, or beside you while you sew or work on the computer. Otherwise you have to hold the baby or put her bed, which isn’t always what both of you want.
