My Newborn Essentials

When Ewan was first born it was top of my to-do list for a long time to do a blog post about the things as a mummy to a newborn I felt were the must haves. But lets be honest I barely had time to eat or wash my hair never mind sit down and construct a blog post that made any sense! So here they are....
(I'll include links to where you can buy them!)

*Muslin Cloths
I know it goes without saying that you buy these things but honestly they are a god send. I literally used them for everything; 
-to wipe up sick
-to cover me whilst I breastfed
-to keep Ewan warm if I'd rushed out and forgotten a thin blanket in the process
-to blow Evie's nose
They are so useful to have to hand at all times and I dread to think what I'd have done without them. I'd definitely recommend paying just that little bit more for some softer ones but then we also found the Sainsbury's ones were fab and so affordable.

*White Noise
With Evie she was a fairly chilled out baby, she would settle herself in her cot, wouldn't be bothered about the quiet but with Ewan (probably due to his noisy sister!) he needs something to help soothe him so he can fall asleep. We were bought a Ewan the sheep simply because it had the same name as our baby but it had been a life saver! Don't get me wrong there are times when I have been feeding Ewan and nearly fallen asleep myself listening to the white noise. However if you aren't so keen on spending money on something you aren't sure will work I'd definitely recommend looking on Youtube or Spotify as there are tonnes of playlists to choose from, I mean the hoover one is defiantly my fave!

*A Baby Carrier
There will be certain times when using the pram just isn't an option or times when your newborn just doesn't want to be put down put you are at that point where a cuppa is a need not a want. Those are times the carrier will be a god send. I found it so much easier to use the carrier when I wanted my hands free or didn't need all the kit and caboodle that I'd usually load onto the pram. 
I've not linked a carrier because there are honestly so many different types and I thinks it a very personal thing as to how you want it to fasten, how supportive you want it to be, things like that. There are so many forums and reviews though!

* The Angelcare Bath Support
If like me you have a long, big baby you'll find that within weeks his head touches one end of the baby bath and his feet touch the other. Not to mention all the water that spills over the edges as you put him in. The bath support was exactly what we needed, it was still soft but very supportive as Ewan was still fairly new and didn't have tonnes of head control but it meant we could put him in the actual bath. It has lasted him up until recently when he could sit himself up and would often decide to fling himself out of the support! So we definitely got our moneys worth.*PX+-+Nursery*PX+-+Google+-+Shopping+-+Generic+-+Nursery*PRODUCT+GROUP450-7723*&ds_kid=92700020664317231&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_dKNmv_P2gIVG57ACh3gAgscEAQYASABEgJJ5fD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CNDwvpz_z9oCFY2iUQodk5oItg
