As a first time mum like many of you who read this blog. I was a little bit bewildered about what a baby actually needs. In the United Kingdom, in your Bounty Pack from your Midwife you have a Copy of Emma’s Diary which does give you a checklist which you can try to follow. But this blog, is about the essentials you need for your baby.


  • 7 Bodysuits
  • 7 Sleepsuits
  • 5 Bibs
  • 2 Blankets
  • 2 Hats
  • Stratch Mits
  • Pack of Socks
  • Baby Towel


  • Newborn Car Seat (Most Hospitals won’t let you leave without one)
  • Pram
  • Cot


  • Nappies (Correct Size)
  • Wet Wipes
  • Nappy Sacks
  • Changing Mat
  • Baby Shampoo
  • Baby Oil
  • Baby Lotion
  • Cotton Buds


  • Breast Pump
  • Bottles
  • Sterilizer

This is just a list to help you get the basis’s that you will need for the baby. In no way, am I trying to tell you what you need to buy. I am only trying to help. Obviously, there will be things that you want to add to the list and things on the list that you will not need. If you think that I have left something vitial off the list, please feel free to comment and tell all the readers. We are all here to help each other.
