Cot, mattress and sheets The drop-down Anna Cot at John Lewis is very well priced and good for smaller spaces. You can also buy versions that turn into beds further down the line. A good firm mattress is essential and worth spending a bit more money on. Baby monitor BT and Tommee Tippee are both good brands and the models that include music and a room thermometer useful.
A wedge baby mat on top of a chest-of-drawers works just as well and will allow you to grab nappies and clothes easily. The wedge ones are useful to stop baby rolling around.
Fitted sheets for moses basket Get at least 4 as you will need to change these a lot. These should also fit your pram if you have a separate carrycot top for this.
In our experience, a good cellular blanket works as well as anything for winter, though you can also buy specific swaddle blankets The Gro Company does some good ones. Buy at least 3. Cellular blankets Useful for swaddling or tucking them in when it is cooler.
Gro Anywhere Blackout Blinds are brilliant. Size 1 fits most new bottoms, but get size 2 as well if you suspect you might be having a giant. Stock up with at least two packs — you will rake through them.
Towelling flannels John Lewis does them in a pack of five. Very handy for top and tailing in the early days, also bath-time and general wipeage. Baby hairbrush We have rarely used ours. Thermometer Most people recommend an ear thermometer, but we have always found a cheap under arm one easier to use. Bath sponge Or a flannel.
Beresford Dale is a lovely walk for our dog! Breakfast service slow, but holiday so acceptable.
Hooded towels Buy to wrap baby up in after his or her bath. Johnsons Top-to-Toe Baby is a good one.
Travel changing mat pack Very useful for on-the-go nappy changing. Bath support seat Bathing a newborn for the first time is nerve-wracking enough without worrying about how to hold the slippery little thing at the same time as washing it.
Sudocrem To protect against the dreaded nappy rash. Bin for nappies with lid For the sake of easy, out of the way nappy disposal, the Sangenic Tec Nappy Disposal System is brilliant, but it is an extravagance, particularly as you will have to pay for new cartridges as you go.
Ate at the Devonshire Arms, which was good. Thank you for letting us use your cottage again, 8th year, I think. The walks were very nice as well as the bike ride.
Anti-bacterial gel For on-the-go hand sterilisation, because you will get poo on your hand at some point. It makes life brilliantly simple if and when you come to bottle feeding. Avent does a good one.
Muslins Incredibly useful for wiping up sick and milk. Honestly, you will churn through these things. Breast pads You will need these for the inevitable leaky boobs. Lansinoh does some good disposable ones and you can also buy washable ones. Nipple cream Lansinoh pure Lanolin is an essential to combat cracked nipples.
Pack it in your hospital bag and use before and after every feed. Heidi Klum Intimates are pretty but not all that supportive for daily wear. Nursing Bra Shop has an excellent selection. Freezer bags for breast milk storage Medela do good freezer ones. Breast pump for expressing Buy an electric one rather than a hand version or it will take forever.
You can also buy double pump versions. Yes, you will feel like a dairy cow. Nipple Shields You may not need these, but it is worth having them on hand in case of sore cracked nipples, or to help slow down a very fast flow. Choose according to the size of your nipple.
Sleeping bags Brilliant for later, but not something to worry about until you have stopped swaddling. Maxi-Cosi is a good make.
An iso-fix base is more expensive, but will save you strapping the seat in manually witha seat belt. Pram The most important piece of kit you will buy. Bouncy chair Incredibly useful for the first six months. Borrow one if you can. Carrier Ergo is generally considered to be the most comfortable, though Baby Bjorn is also popular.
