Top 5 Nursery Must Haves

08:00:00 The little things... 0 Comments


Second time around shopping for and preparing for a baby is much easier. You know what you really NEED over what you think you like the look of or what perhaps is absolutely not necessary. There are several things I bought with Daisy that were barely looked at, never mind touched.

 So I thought I would share with you my top 5 nursery essentials.   Room Thermometer  I am always cold so I find it really difficult to know how warm a room is for a baby without using a thermometer. I have never used anything fancy, just one like this has done the job just fine. Just obviously don't put it right over the radiator or by the window, I have always placed ours on a shelf just by where the cot is to give a good reading. This is a good little kit because the bath one could come in handy too.   Baby Thermometer  This item is a must have. I don't know what I would do without ours. I have had the same one since having Daisy and it is one we were handed down. It works a treat and can really put your mind at rest if your little one is unwell or maybe you think they feel warm. We have one that can go in the ear but you can get all kinds of scanning type ones now which look even better!  Projection Soother  There are lots of soothers around now, we had several with Daisy but I find the ones that can have light lullaby's and a light show the most effective. They really aid the little one to fall off to sleep on their own and it can soothe them if you just want to pop them down for a while. We have the Hug Me Projection Soother at the moment which we just love.   Sleep Sacs  I am not a fan of loose blankets in babies cots. There are too many horror stories and with a sleep sac you don't have such a worry and also you know they should be nice and toasty, but not too hot. Gro bags tends to be our favourite because of the designs available and they wash really well too.   Monitor  Again for safety reasons and to put my mind at rest. We don't have a fancy video one, I have never felt a need for one and they were much more expensive when I bought one 3 years ago for Daisy.

Room Thermometer

I am always cold so I find it really difficult to know how warm a room is for a baby without using a thermometer. I have never used anything fancy, just one like this has done the job just fine. Just obviously don't put it right over the radiator or by the window, I have always placed ours on a shelf just by where the cot is to give a good reading. This is a good little kit because the bath one could come in handy too.

Baby Thermometer

This item is a must have. I don't know what I would do without ours. I have had the same one since having Daisy and it is one we were handed down. It works a treat and can really put your mind at rest if your little one is unwell or maybe you think they feel warm. We have one that can go in the ear but you can get all kinds of scanning type ones now which look even better!

Projection Soother

There are lots of soothers around now, we had several with Daisy but I find the ones that can have light lullaby's and a light show the most effective. They really aid the little one to fall off to sleep on their own and it can soothe them if you just want to pop them down for a while. We have the Hug Me Projection Soother at the moment which we just love.

Sleep Sacs

I am not a fan of loose blankets in babies cots. There are too many horror stories and with a sleep sac you don't have such a worry and also you know they should be nice and toasty, but not too hot. Gro bags tends to be our favourite because of the designs available and they wash really well too.

Monitor

Again for safety reasons and to put my mind at rest. We don't have a fancy video one, I have never felt a need for one and they were much more expensive when I bought one 3 years ago for Daisy.
