It’s easy to go overboard when you are a first-time mum or a mum-to-be. You have checklists after checklists, from what to pack in your hospital bag to things to get for when the baby arrives.
Your shopping list can easily become expansive (and expensive), especially when you’re planning to buy baby- or mum-related items from overseas.

Carrying a child in your for 9 months is no easy feat and sometimes you’ll need that extra support. Hip and pelvic pains are common during pregnancy. The AZMED Maternity Band helps ease the discomfort of pregnancy by supporting your baby bump and providing gentle compression in the abdominal area.
Preparing the nursery for the baby can be a fun activity for soon-to-be mums, especially during the nesting period. For those looking to coordinate the baby cot bedding with the decor, look no further than Babyletto’s Bedding Set. The set comes with a fitted crib sheet, crib skit, play blanket, changing pad cover and even coordinating wall decal stickers. Easy peasy and fuss-free decorating.
You may not need this while being pregnant but it’s good to be prepared for when the baby comes home with you. The Baby Delight Snuggle Nest creates a protective, open area for your baby in your own bed – perfect for co-sleeping. It’s a great way for new mums and babies to adjust to new schedules and for when you’re travelling with an infant since it’s portable.
Preparing for the arrival of your bundle of joy means buying newborn clothes and necessities. Don’t forget about having a receiving blanket on hand to wrap up your baby when it’s time to go home from the hospital. This Tula Baby Blanket set is ultra cozy, breathable and soft on the get-go for some squishy snuggles. While waiting for their arrival, you can also use them to practice your swaddling.
Not only are swaddles great as in-cot blankets, they’re multipurpose too. From a nursing cover and burp cloth to a picnic blanket and stroller cover – the options are endless! You can never have too many swaddles when it comes to newborns, but it’s highly recommended to wash them before the baby arrives. These Margaux & May muslin swaddles will only get softer after every wash.
