It’s the big day. You’re out of your pjs and leaving the house! It really can be a jungle out there with a new bub in tow. To make sure your virgin voyage is a stress-free as possible, we’ve rounded up seven pram essentials. Add to cart and go!
Babies can be really lazy when it comes to washing their hands after they go to the toilet, so a hefty stash of baby wipes is a new mother no-brainer. WaterWipes are incredibly pure, chemical-free baby wipes, made using 99.9% water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract, and free from preservatives.
For when the call of nature inevitably comes, you’ll need a nappy or two. Gently Bamboo Eco Nappies are a great option for the environmentally-minded new mother. With a reusable fabric shell, the disposable inserts are made from bamboo, wood pulp and a biodegradable water proof layer. Much gentler on bub and the planet.
Change mats are another essential for keeping baby comfy and mess at a minimum, particularly when using public bathrooms while out and about. BabyU® Disposable Change Mats are ultra convenient, with an absorbent layer to prevent leakage and keep baby’s skin dry.
Soothing nappy cream
Little bums need TLC, so make sure you pack some nappy cream. Weleda’s White Mallow Nappy Cream promotes healthy skin, soothing and keeping dampness at bay to prevent irritation.
In the harsh Aussie sun, it’s important to shield itty bitty skins. UVP 50+, Fly Babee can be attached to any stroller or pram, blocking 97% of light. Designed with ventilation in mind, it’s also 100% breathable, keeping baby cool and protected.
If you feel like you’ve left the house with everything but the kitchen sink, a handy hook-on pram organiser will be your best friend. With spots for mobile phones, keys, drinks, little socks and other baby paraphernalia, 3-Sprouts has a super cute selection of collapsible organisers.
If the more homemade looking nursing covers send chills down your spine, an oversized scarf will do exactly the same thing. Seed has a fab selection of scarves that do double duty as a modesty cover for style-conscious mums.
