NEWBORN BABY CHECKLIST

The ever-growing shopping list of essentials before a baby arrives can feel so overwhelming for parents to be. What feels like a constant flow of expenses from decorating the nursery, baby clothes, feeding equipment and essential nursery furniture.

We have put together a list of items to help you narrow down what we feel you absolutely need when baby arrives. Keeping it simple and only adding the essentials.
