In this post, Dr Harshaja takes us through five must-have products for your baby
13 Oct 2009 is the day marked as the birthday of my first child Anasuya. It is the day when I transformed into a mother. I can never forget the first moment when I witnessed a unique feeling of being MOTHER. All I knew was that I wanted to give her the world. I am sure many new mothers have a similar experience. We, mothers, want to provide everything our little ones need as soon as possible. Understanding the needs of all moms around the world we have some famous brands providing good quality baby products. I am sure many mothers out there are totally clueless about these brands but we eventually figure out by experimenting.
Let me list for you some of the well-identified products with brands in India. I can assure you that they are worth investing for the initial stages of your child.
Baby/ kids clothing
Skin of a newborn is very delicate. The most recommended are pure cotton clothes. The most popular baby clothes are of Mothercare
Mothercare products are easily available online. They have best bodysuits for infants which variety of patterns and design that suits your child. These baby bodysuits last longer and the sizes range from 0 – 24 months. The quality of denim wear is very comfortable for the kids, especially the fact they have a flexible adjustment for the waist. The design of the pants is well thought of keeping in mind that most of this age group wear diapers. I also like the fact that the t-shirts and shirts have a very superior quality button so that they don’t harm the delicate skin. Expecting mothers can visit their nearest Mothercare stores and have a look at their clothing section. I am a fan of this chain that is located at Shoppers stop.
Bouncing chair is one of the most useful baby chairs that make sure your baby smile. My two kids have thoroughly enjoyed this baby product. We had Fischer price bouncing chair that was used for both my kids. I have even passed it on to my niece. I must say it is still in a good shape. The quality of the product is excellent and the chair cloth is washable.
Being mobile with your child becomes super easy with a stroller. Evening walks, stroll at a mall, travel with a baby, is possible with a good stroller. A variety of stroller types is now easily available online. Tips to identify the right stroller for your child:
- Convenient to place your child
- The stroller must be strong and sturdy
- Good neck and back support
- Easy to maneuver the chair
A good stroller can be used until your kid is 3 years old and it is definitely worth the investment.
Baby rattle and Teether
Baby rattles are never a miss. You can get kids attention by a basic rattle with vibrant colours. Remember to stock soft rattles instead of hard wooden ones. Babies have a tendency to bang them on their heads, once they start playing with it.
A good teether help to sooth the gums once the teeth start to erupt. I had bought some awesome water teethers that helped sooth the gums.
Baby wipes truly make your life easy as a new mother. I can’t imagine myself using a wet cotton to clean the baby buttocks. Baby wipes have really made things easier for both mothers as well as fathers.
