Must Have Baby Equipment

There are so many baby things that aren’t listed above which you may have bought, may have been given or think you will need or use…  There are new things entering the market every day, some better than others.  Some new parents cope with very little and others buy everything they can think of and end up not using a lot of things, so try not to get too carried away if possible.

Last but not least… have fun while preparing for your little babba’s arrival!
