Being a mum needs lots of planning, preparing, and shopping, and with being a new mum, it can be very stressful. It might seem like a lot of work but not to worry, here is a list including 15 new mum essentials that you cannot do with out.
15 New Mum Essentials!
1| A crib
First, a crib is at the top of new mum essentials. We recommend the SnuzPod 3 Bedside Crib! The SnuzPod boasts a stunning new look and brand-new features, including a reflux incline, a wider and lighter lift-off bassinet and dual-view breathable mesh sides, making it the perfect sleep solution from newborn to 6 months. It is cleverly designed to always be by your side, with a unique lift-off bassinet that’s lightweight and comfortable for use around the home and when visiting friends and family.

The Summer Infant Stroller is one of our top picks! This lightweight and stylish stroller with its aluminum frame is one of the lightest and most featured rich convenience strollers on the market. With an easy to fold frame and carry strap, you can be on-the-go or stow and go with ease.
3| Car seat
The Doona Infant Car Seat is the world’s first car seat with integrated wheels meaning that in less than five seconds you can be out of your car with your precious little one and on your way in safety and style. Whether you’re picking up a latte, running into the supermarket, quickly escaping the rain, or traveling on public transport or through an airport, the Doona is truly the next generation in parent and child safety and mobility
4| A changing mat
Having a baby is miraculous, but we all agree that there are some less glamorous aspects to consider when it comes to taking care of your little one. We love the JJ – Mini Changing Mat for its lightness and flexibility which would make it super easy to just fold, pack, and be ready to go!
5| Breast Pump
Stimulating your milk flow is important for you as a new mum. That’s why we recommend Tommee Tippee’s Made for Me Electric Breast Pump. Why? Because it’s portable, lightweight and discreet enough to give you confidence and freedom to express breast milk when and where you want. It’s also extremely quiet and gives you a choice of massage and express modes so that you can discover the most comfortable way to stimulate your milk flow and express your breast milk.
6| Breastfeeding pillow
As a new mum, patience is important when breastfeeding your little one. To avoid discomfort for you or your baby, we recommend Clevamama’s Clevacushion. Not only will it make nursing your baby more comfortable, but it can be used in multiple ways, like supporting your back when burning your baby, or a back-supporter for your baby when laying down!
8| Baby Monitor
We understand it might be a little difficult for you to leave your newborn alone in a room even if you were just outside the door. A baby monitor is perfect to keep an eye on your little one! The Motorola 2.4′ Digital Video Baby Monitor is a great gadget for a new mom with its colored LCD screen, night vision, built-in temperature sensor, and a high-sensitivity microphone.
9| Baby Carrier
Make your life easier with Ergobaby Baby Carrier. This carrier helps you go on about your day with your baby next to you. It has four comfy carrying positions and features a lumbar support and extra cushioned crossable shoulder straps for parents.

11| Bath tub and towel
Bathing your newborn might be stressful for you as a new mum. The First Years Sure Comfort Tub with its deep ergonomic design holds the baby better for bathing, and has a perfect fit for both single and double sinks. We also love Konges Slojd’s Organic Terry Baby Towel with its soft fabric and cute bunny ears!
13| Rocking chair
Rock and swing your baby with Mamaroo 4.0 which Bounces up and down and sways from side to side, just like parents do, and has five speeds and unique motions. We love it because it replicates the bouncing and swaying to soothe and entertain the baby better than traditional infant seats.
15| Pacifier Holder
Last in our new mum essentials, but not least. A personalize your baby’s pacifier holder with Littlemico’s Silicone Personalised Pacifier Holder. Its cute design and unique silicone beads are made from 100% FDA approved high quality food grade silicone which are non-toxic, lead free and even saliva proof!
