Here's a selection of my personal top 3 products that come in handy with a newborn baby! I am writing this as part of a BzzCampaign as I'm a BzzAgent. It's so difficult when you're expecting your first baby, every person wants to tell you what you should and shouldn't do, should and shouldn't buy. We ended up with so many things that we never even used! And others that were essential that nobody had told us about.
Absolute must have and still are and my son's nearly two, no worries about blankets being kicked off or going over their face. They are safely zipped in and they come in several tog's and sizes, perfect for summer or winter! Of course there are many other companies that make sleeping bags but I've always found Grobag's of excellent quality, plus they have ones suitable for travelling with a zip for seatbelt to grow through, means if your baby falls asleep in the car then you don't need to risk waking them up by getting them into it.
These are an absolute godsend, especially if you baby turns out to suffer from reflux, brilliant for winding, wiping up dribble and excess milk. My son still carries at least one around everywhere!
Tomy TVD450 Video Baby Monitor
For us, the best baby monitor on the market. It has night vision, two way talk, built in colour changing night light, you can take photos and it has a crisp clear picture and excellent sound! Couldn't use any other!
