Getting Ready for Bub – Product Round Up
I have been incredibly lucky already to have had the opportunity to work with some incredible brands as I begin the journey of The (Oblivious) New Mama. Six months pregnant now, Pete and I are just starting to really think about and plan what we need to buy and, perhaps most importantly, what brands we are going to use. This being our first pregnancy – as I am sure many of you have experienced before – we have received a lot of advice from the people around us.
Dreambaby® Bath Seat
When we were looking for houses to rent, one thing that we were adamant about was that there needed be a bath. It is something that I am so looking forward to – bath time. The Dreambaby® Super Comfy Bath Seat is not only completely adorable, but it is an extremely well thought out product and of extremely high quality. Specially designed for comfort and convenience, the bath seat is suitable for babies who are able to sit up unassisted which normally happens around the six month mark.
The seat has four large suction caps on its base to secure the seat to the bath, ensuring a safe and sturdy bathing experience. It features a supportive back rest, a contoured non-skid seat and generous leg space. Both you and Bub will benefit from the design on the Dreambaby® Bath Seat as its front opens, making getting Bub in and out of the seat extremely simple. Not only that- and probably my most favourite feature of all – there is a little star fish located on the front of the seat that changes colour if the temperature of the bathwater is too hot for your little person! So darn clever, so darn cute.
Dreambaby® StrollerBuddy Stroller Clips
I am mad about the award-winning Stroller Clips from Dreambaby®! Not only do they look like tiny prehistoric birds (right?!), but the cerated teeth ensure for a firm hold. The clips lock tightly thanks to the uneven lengths of each mouth, meaning that your fabric covers will remain in place for as long as Bub needs them too! Plus, they are super bright, incredibly fun and extremely durable.
Dreambaby® Essential Grooming Kit
Pete will tell you that one of the things I am looking forward to most is seeing our baby’s tiny little fingernails and teeny weeny toenails. Not only that, but I cannot wait to dress Bub in the jumpsuits that have the little mittens built in so that they don’t accidentally scratch themselves. Because I am due in February though, our little human will be wearing a lot of short sleeves and singlet-type outfits which means that we will need to be vigilant with grooming.
The ten-piece grooming set from Dreambaby® includes a toothbrush, a comb, a brush, a pair of scissors, nail clippers, four nail files and a handy storage case for when you are on the move. Each piece in the grooming kit his specifically designed for use on young babies through to toddlers, helping keep them well groomed and healthy.
Dreambaby® Toothbrush features a compact head with soft bristles that are gentle on gums and developing teeth. The easy-grip handle is perfect for growing little humans, encouraging correct brushing techniques and comfort.
Dreambaby® Comb is ergonomic for parent and child handling and features non-scratch rounded teeth that are gentle on the scalp and will detangle hair (without the tears!).
Dreambaby® Brush once again features the easy-grip handle that will be perfect for when your toddler starts learning and practicing grooming for themselves. Soft and gentle on the scalp, the bristles are perfect for delicate, infant hair.
Dreambaby® Scissors have a rounded tip for safety and safe use as well as comfortable handles formal hands!
Dreambaby® Nail Clippers have been designed for the specific use on little finger and toe nails. Sized and curved for safe trimming, parents can trim their Bub’s nails with confidence and avoid those nasty little scratches.
Dreambaby® Emery Boards are perfect for use after Bub’s nails have been trimmed. The boards gently file away jagged edges to prevent any sharp nails.
The Dreambaby® Storage Case is compact and sturdy and is ideal when you are on the move. The interior compartments ensure that all Bub’s grooming essentials are accounted for, organised and hygienically stored.
BabyBjörn® Bouncer Bliss
The latest design of bouncer from BabyBjörn® is the Bouncer Bliss. The ergonomic bouncer offers natural rocking with your Bub’s movements – little kicks, enthusiastic arm-waving, etc. – providing the momentum; as the company’s website states, “the baby bouncer runs on pure fun!”. Offering amazing support for your baby’s neck, head and back right from birth.
As soon as we opened up the delivery of our Bouncer Bliss both Pete and I could imagine Bub in it, spending time with us whether it be outdoors with Pete as he tinkers away, or in the bathroom with me while I shower (which I have heard is an incredibly common occurrence). The bouncer is lightweight and portable, offering your Bub three different positions for play, rest and sleep and is incredibly simply and easy to to fold up and store.
The BabyBjörn® Bouncer Bliss is an award-winning bouncer with a brand new design. Aesthetically the bouncer is neutral and would suit any and every home. The grey base and frame give the bouncer a soft look with the seat itself made from cosy, cuddly quilted cotton. What’s more, the Bouncer Bliss can be used up until your Bub is two years old, so when they are able to sit up unassisted, it can be used as a comfy children’s chair.
BabyBjörn® Carrier One
Another award-winning product with a brand new design, the BabyBjörn® Carrier One is a flexible, ergonomic and attractive carrier the parents can use from birth until three years. Full adjustable and exceedingly comfortable (trust me, Pete and I both tried it on and absolutely fell in love with it) the Carrier One has a wide, sturdy waist belt and thick padded shoulder straps to take the pressure off your back and shoulders, making for enjoyable and comfortable use.
When this package arrived for us, Pete put the Carrier One on straight away and familiarised himself with each and every clip, fastener and strap. He wore it around the house far longer than necessary and is absolutely mad about it. When he (finally) took it off, he slipped it over my head and his excitement was infectious – this carrier is the real deal.
The size, seat area and head support are all fully adjustable so each and every Bub can be carried comfortably for their size, as well as the carrier being completely adaptable and suitable as Bub grows! Able to be worn facing out or back carrying, the Carrier One allows you to carry your baby in a natural position with their back in a ‘C-curve’.
The BabyBjörn® Carrier One features timeless design that suits both mums and dads. Allowing parents to have their hands free the carrier means you can hold your baby in an upright position that will see them interacting with the world around them. Ensuring free air passages, free movement for your baby’s legs and arms, and good support for your baby’s neck and head this is the carrier to get when you are preparing for your Bub!
Bright Starts Teethe and Read
Crinkle books are among my absolute favourite things – seriously. I don’t know if I remember it from my early childhood or ifI remember it from when my littlest brother was a newborn, but the sound of the pages have a special little place in my heart. Mum bought Bub the Giraffe Bright Starts Teethe and Read – each page is brightly coloured and have textured teething corners for when your little one starts to bite, everything. The books are suitable for bubs three months and up!
I mean, come on.. look how freaking cute it is.
Johnson’s Baby Gift Box
Mum also bought Bub this Johnson’s Baby Gift Box (and I completely lost my mind over it). The pack includes Johnson’s Baby Skincare Wipes, a 225g Johnson’s Baby Powder, one 500ml Johnson’s Baby Top-to-To Bath, one Johnson’s Baby Shampoo and 200ml Johnson’s Baby Lotion.
Everyone always talks about the smell of newborns and how intoxicating and amazing it is (and it SO is), but I also adore the smell of Johnson’s baby products. It does something to me, surely I am not the only one..
Much like BabyBjörn®, Johnson’s are an industry leader with a proven and trusted company track record. And, as I mentioned earlier, I cannot express how excited I am for bath time, and who doesn’t love the smell of baby powder. Each of these Johnson’s products are an essential item to have in your inventory when expecting your little human, and will see you sharing moments with your baby that will remain with you (I for-see a lot of crying in my near future).
I really want to thank both Dreambaby® and BabyBjörn® for gifting me these products for an honest review. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with both of these incredible companies, truly.
