Although I have’t had a newborn in the home for a number of years, I do know just how much you need to be prepared and ready to go, because life changes completely once your little one has arrived. I found going from none to one was such a big leap, but then from one to two wasn’t so much of a jump. Plus, you tend to already have a lot of the things in already! But if you are going to be having your first baby, what help is there out there?
I have been a long-time user of Amazon, and recently have created wish lists on there for the children and I. Sometimes I hear someone recommend a book or I see something that I quite like. I get my phone out, use the Amazon app, and add it to my wish list. Then I can buy things as and when, or have something to look back on when people ask what do I want for Christmas or what do I want for my birthday. It was a big help with the children over Christmas and grandparents asking what they would like.
So when it comes to newborns, setting a list up is a must. Grandparents to be, as well as friends and other family members will be keen to know what they can get to help, but they won’t want to get anything that you haven’t approved of.
Rochelle Humes X Amazon Baby Wish List
From pushchairs to muslins, Rochelle has a list of all of her chosen baby essentials, all done using Amazon’s Baby Wish List. It is great to use, as I have mentioned before, for people wanting to buy gifts, especially if you are doing something like a virtual baby shower, the way things currently are. It helps to keep you organised too, and I quite like that Rochelle has shown you what she would choose and recommend, because as she is now a mum of three, she has plenty of experience in this area, and what is and isn’t a waste of money.
Did you know that you can receive a free welcome gift and can save up to 20% on some products in your wish list, when you create one?
Of the wish list, Rochelle has said:
“Having a baby is such an exciting time but it can also be quite daunting, especially thinking about all of the things you need to keep your baby happy and safe. This is my third baby and it’s more important than ever that I am organised as I already have my hands full looking after my two daughters! Making an Amazon Baby Wish List is a great way to organise and plan your shopping and I love how easy it is to share with family and friends. I had so much fun making this wish list and I hope it will be helpful to other expectant parents trying to navigate life with a newborn.”
Here are some of Rochelle’s top picks, that I like the look of as well – sometimes you’ve got to go for the most practical things as the best kind of gift!
Have you created a wish list on Amazon before? It would be great to hear what you think and if there are any top picks that you would add to your list that Rochelle has chosen?
