What To Put on Your Newborn Baby Shopping List; Items New Parents Can't Live Without
Knowing exactly what to buy when you're expecting a baby can be tricky; from car seats to muslins to breast pads, the list is endless. The best advice often comes from those who have already been through it and know what worked well from experience. We asked a few of our MORI Instagram Community parents what three items they couldn't have survived without as a new parent, and here are their essentials...
- Sleepyhead, MORI blanket & treacle sponge pudding from M&S
- A lovely soft blanket e.g. MORI, that you can swaddle with if needed, lansinoh ointment, nursing pads and lots of coconut water to drink
Baby MORI Sleeping Bag, an absolute fave <3, Snuzpod for safe night time cuddles and Tommee Tippee prep machine!
- I will try to sum it up in 3 items, although there are much more than that: Fisher-Price Comfort Bouncer, MORI blanket & dactozin rash cream
- As a father, I'd say: swaddles/sleep sacks, burp cloths and pacifiers
- Sleepyhead, lansinoh lanolin and muslins
- Muslins, Baby Bjorn Bouncer and MORI Sleeping Bag
- Dummy, swaddle/muslins and white noise machine
- Sleepyhead, MORI Kimono Bodysuits (especially for newborns) and TONS of water! And Vitamix, of course!
- MORI Sleeping Bag, Ewan The Dream Sheep and LOADS of nipple cream if you're planning on breastfeeding 🙌🏻
- Sleepyhead, hot water bottle and prep machine!
Muslin swaddle blankets, bouncy seat and Baby Jogger City Select Stroller!
- Baby vests/baby gros, muslins! Lots of muslins! Baby sleeping bag
- Rockwell bassinet from @montedesign - I swear it's why my babe slept through the night from 6 weeks!
- Sleephead, Baby Bjorn Bouncer and a white noise machine. We love the Aden and Anais Serenity Star!

- Muslins, the Purflo and a baby sling!
