Baby Shopping List

August 19, 2010

Hi mums-to-be,

Excited a being a new mummy? If you are like me, you will be browsing baby shops and looking at all the cute little clothes that the baby will be wearing. But it is wise to start the shopping a little later. Sometimes, friends and family will give you a lot of things so there is no need to buy them. Also, you can look out for baby fairs and promotions.

However, it’s good to have a checklist to know what are the essential things you need. In that way, when friends and family give you free stuff, you can check it off your list.

So here’s a list that I found extremely useful. Hope it is useful to you too!

Happy shopping!
