Preparing for a newborn can be stressful at times but it all takes baby steps (and patience) to get everything organised before they arrive into this world.

Whether you're a new Mother to Be, already a Mum or simply curious about motherhood, here are some of the latest must-have baby essentials that I found useful for my newborn.

All of the products as mentioned below can be purchased online via The Stork Nest - your one-stop-shop for well known baby brands such as Skip Hop, Cocoonababy, Schnuggle and much more. 

Skip Hop, Heather Grey Pronto Signature Station,
 RRP $49.95

The portable changing pack comes in a foldable bag which keeps all of the baby essentials neatly packed. The head area is cushioned with an innovative 'pronto pillow' making it comfortable for Bubs.

Cocoonababy Nest White, RRP $299 

The Cocoonababy is designed ergonomically as a 'cocoon' to use in the cot during the baby's first months. It's made so that it helps the baby to adapt smoothly to life after birth which is such an innovative idea. My little one has definitely enjoyed his little cocoon as it has helped to prolong his nap times during the day.

There are advantages for sleeping babies in the cocoon position which includes: 
  • Looks to improve the quality and length of time of your baby's sleep 
  • Minimises the risk of the flat head syndrome
  • Limits gastric reflux 
  • Reduces any involuntary movements which can wake up a baby and make them cry 
The Cocoonababy in Nest White is available here

Shnuggle Bath Tub, RRP $54.95 

If you're after a comfortable bath tub for your baby, the Shnuggle Bath Tub, RRP $54.95 might come in handyIt's made suitable for newborns to 12 months+ and it features a bum bump which supports your baby and helps them to feel safe. As for the head rest, it comes in a foam like material which allows your baby to relax whilst getting bathed.

You'll be pleased to know that the Shnuggle bath tub was a Winner of Mother & Baby Gold 2017 and Junior Design Gold awardas it's one of the top rated baby baths available. 

Here's why I love the bath tub design: 
  • It's compact and can fit in most kitchen sinks 
  • The bum bump is a great feature which helps to support your baby 
  • The foam back rest will allow your baby's head to rest comfortably 
  • Made from non-toxic HDPE
