NO NEED TO LOOK ELSEWHERE

Your pregnant belly is growing to the point that you can feel every single movement of your baby. Everyone around you keeps asking for the due date. You might have already decided on a name for your baby or not. But one thing is certain: you don’t know if you are 100% prepared for your baby’s arrival. The time is chaotic, there’s too many things to think about and shopping for all the baby essentials sounds a little bit overwhelming. From setting up the nursery to gathering the gear for eating, sleeping and diapering.
How do you figure out which are the must-have baby items you absolutely can’t live without? If you’re scared you might forget something we’ve got your back! Listed below, you’ll find all the must-have items, broken down into these sections:

  • Baby Bath
  • Baby Feeding
