Top 7 Baby Essentials

by Nurture Collective

Becoming a parent is a real roller coaster of emotions from excitement, joy, anticipation and sometimes feeling overwhelmed with what you may or may not need so we have put together our top 7 products of items you will definitely need when having a baby.


One thing babies definitely do is sleep. They can nap up to 12-18 hours a day so that’s a lot of time in their cot. We recommend certified organic cotton as this means there are no chemical nasties that have been used in the production process.

Our premium organic bedding range is perfect for your baby’s first cot and kinder on a baby’s skin. It is GOTS certified and Soil certified too which means that the cotton is grown and processed without the use of harmful pesticides and other nasties. Plus certified organic cotton uses 91% less water than conventional cotton so is all around better for the environment too.

Reusable Nappies

We highly recommend our award-winning range of Bambino Mio nappies. We stock an all-in-one design making it really easy to use. The beauty of them is that they are one size which means they last from birth to potty training.

Did you know that an average baby uses up to 1,800 nappies in its first year and It can take up to 500 years for a disposable nappy to decompose? So you can already start to see the benefits of using reusable.
