The istinctive, silicone, breast-like teat of these bottles feels closer to skin and flexes like mum for a comfortable feed. The anti-colic valve reduces excessive air flow, so your little one ingests more milk and less air. It also supports in the transition from breastfeeding to bottle feeding.

With so many to choose from, deciding which baby monitor to use can feel like a minefield. But if you’re a bit of a tech geek, the Nanit Plus Smart Baby Monitor will be right up your street. The overhead HD camera tracks and understands everything happening in your baby’s cot including sleep patterns, parent visits and room conditions, helping to provide personalised and scientifically backed sleep advice for you and your little one. You’ll receive real-time sound and motion notifications as well as two-way audio and the monitor can be used as either a wall mount or floor stand. 

Proven to be purer than cotton wool and water, Waterwipes are made with 99.9 per cent water and a drop of fruit extract as well as being completely biodegradable and compostable. With 0 per cent artificial fragrance and colours, these wipes are gentle enough for sensitive, newborn and even premature baby’s skin.

Made from warm-to-touch foam, the Shnuggle Squishy Changing Mat has an elevated head to help reduce colic as well as raised sides to prevent your baby from rolling off. There’s no nooks or crannies for dirt to gather either so it’s quick and easy to clean. 

Available in a range of adorable patterns, the Cheeky Chompers Muslin Neckerchew comes with a soft and pliable textured teething triangle attached so not only will the absorbent bib keep your baby's clothes drool-free, but they can reach for the teether whenever they need.

A one-pot wonder suitable for nappy rash, eczema, surface wounds, sunburn, minor burns, acne, bed sores and more, this is a must to have in your changing bag. 

Muslin's are a god-send when you're a parent and these gorgeous ones from aden + anais are breathable and pre-washed so they're super soft from the start. Made from 100 per cent cotton, these swaddles can also be used as a burp cloth, nursing cover and more. We adore the variety of designs to choose from too.

This double sided soft and crinkly book is full of gorgeous illustrations, multi sensory textures and fun activities to capture your baby's attention. With a high contrast side for use from birth, and a colourful side once your little one can focus more, it's a great free-standing book to encourage tummy time.

As your newborn adjusts to life outside of the womb, her skin starts to form a protective barrier called the acid mantle. This is why it’s best to stick to just warm water when bathing your child to avoid irritating her delicate skin. As she gets older, choose a gentle wash like the Childs Farm baby wash which is suitable for sensitive skin and dermatologist approved. 
 

It’s no surprise that you may want to keep your precious as close as possible to you and a baby carrier is the perfect solution – and will limit close contact with any well-wishers too. The Ergobaby Embrace Newborn Carrier is suitable from birth and will keep her close to your heart in a natural position. It’s simple to buckle on and comfortable to wear too so you can focus on enjoying finding your rhythm together. 

When your baby is so little, bathing them in a big old tub can be a bit of a faff so opting for their very own bath can make things a lot easier. The compact Shnuggle Bath takes no time at all to fill, with a minimum of two litres of water needed. The bum bump helps your little one from sliding into the water while the foam backrest will keep them comfy. Suitable from birth to 12 months.
