Top newborn baby purchases (and the things you don’t need!!!)

Black and white mobile, books,

Mobile to go over changing table – keeps baby amused during bum changes. Has to be moved when their arms are long enough to pull the bits off! Great for nappy off time!

Rainforest play gym (with giraffe as one of the arch supports)

Tiny love super play mat

Bumbo – for when they can’t quite sit up yet. And tray.

Bouncy chair – I bought cheaply one from mothercare but then spent £85 on a babybjorn babysitter chair bcos they can go in that up to 29 lbs and Jessie has outgrown the mothercare one. Essential for taking baby into bathroom so you can shower while playing peekaboo and don’t have to wait for when they are sleeping only to hear a cry when you’ve just started shampooing hair…

Lots of nappies and wipes (Huggies wipes are awful)
