See what made it on my baby wish list…
[dropcap]Countdown[/dropcap] has began, 42 days exactly till the arrival or our new house mate.
We have most of the essentials but there is still so much to get, things that I didn’t even know existed, so below I have a snippet of my very long baby wish list focusing on the big items I want to buy.
Majority of them have either been recommended by my mummy friends or spotted on Instagram and over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing more of the purchases on here, Instagram and YouTube. One tip that I keep receiving over and over again is to not to go crazy and buy too much, which is great news but at times slightly difficult as there is so many cute items out there!
Designed to replicate the motion that parents use to comfort the baby rather than the usual swings or vibrating seats. Mamaroo 4.0 sooths and entertains while gives you a little break. It’s on a pricey side but it’s meant to accommodate a child up to 11kg, though the toy balls seem to be a little bit flimsy.
SNOO Smart Sleeper is slick, safe and has been popping up all over my Instagram feed. The only downside, is the price. It’s definitely on the high end of the spectrum but with a design that is supposed to help with sleep training and can calm a baby’s fussing by quickly responding with special white noise and jiggly rocking. So it could be worth it.
I have been torn between a Joolz and an iCandy with tons of people in the UK going for the latter as the Joolz is still relatively new to the market. However, a very close friend of mine can’t stop raving about the Joolz Day² Studio stroller and after a closer inspection I can see why. Not only does it look good, it’s also incredibly easy to maneuver and is not that much heavier than some of other popular prams on the market. The storage basket is smaller than some but in Dubai you’re rarely far from a car and the fact that it comes with a cot for newborn is an added bonus.
Child’s safety is of most importance and after some research this Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus car seat keeps coming up. I like the fact that it swivels, it’s meant to be easy to install and it’s good to use up to the age of four. Downside is that it is not designed to be taken out of the car, however that makes it extra secure.
These Sleepy Head cocoons of softness look like the comfiest things in the world that I’m tempted to ask if there’s an adults version. They are made to snuggle your baby and prevent rolling over and are particularly good for when you want to bring the baby into the bed for some cuddles without fear of accidentally rolling onto them.
