With almost three decades of expertise in childcare recruitment, it is safe to say that the team at Nannies Incorporated know a thing or two about providing the best possible care for children of all ages; including new-born babies.
Our senior team is not only experienced in the placement of nannies, maternity nurses and governesses in family homes, they are mothers too. That’s why we’ve put together this ultimate guide for baby products, recommended by our caring and professional team to help make life with your new-born baby that little bit easier.
Our picks of the less obvious things you'll need for your baby..
There’s nothing worse than putting your baby’s used nappies in the same bin as your regular kitchen swing bin. Purchase a nappy bucket, also known as a nappy pail, to tightly seal in the dirty nappies and prevent unwanted smells from emanating throughout the home!
The perfect way to keep your hands free and your baby cosy and secure, a Moby Wrap might not look much but this super-long piece of cotton wraps perfectly around you and your baby to create a highly practical sling.
Back Seat Car Mirror
It can be unnerving for you to drive along in your vehicle without being able to clamp eyes on your little one. A great stress-reliever at the wheel is a Back Seat Car Mirror, which can be angled to allow you full view of their face. As they get older, your baby will also get entertainment out of seeing themselves in the mirror!
Another perfect solution for those moments when you need the use of both your hands, a Mamaroo is an innovative seat for your baby. It sways and bounces in the same way that you do when you hold your baby, putting them at ease when you’re particularly busy.
White Noise Mobile App
White noise is the perfect remedy for babies struggling to drift off to sleep in a new environment. There are mobile apps which cost a matter of pennies that can play comforting white noise throughout the night or during a midday nap.
Baby Food Freezer Tray
If you are planning on preparing home-cooked meals for your baby, Freezer Trays are invaluable, allowing you to cook a large batch of meals and freeze them for use throughout the week – a huge time-saver.
Remote Control Panoramic Video Monitor
Video Monitors have evolved considerably in recent years. Technological advancements now allow you to purchase monitors with panoramic cameras that are remote-controlled, allowing you to see more of your baby’s cot or bedroom from your own bed or sofa.
Digital Ear Thermometer
Some nights your little one will be grizzly in the night and even wailing in pain. A Digital Ear Thermometer can tell you within seconds whether your baby’s temperature is high, saving you trips to hospital and the doctors’ surgery.
Baby brands we love
