I’ve been wanting to write this column on the best baby products for new mums for months now and finally I’m there. I started by noting down the products that have really worked for me – including anything and everything from baby swaddles and sleeping bags to breast pumps and high chairs. It may look like a pretty daunting read but it made me realise how far the mother and baby market has come since I had my first child.
Best baby products – as recommended by us and our audience of mums
For mamas-to-be, there is now SO much choice when it comes to baby products. If you’re a second or a third time mum like me, you made be tempted to rely on old favourites, but when I had my third baba, I made it my mission to try hundreds of new products, and some of them really amazed me. It made me curious as to the best baby products other mothers were championing. I did some research on Instagram, calling all mamas to comment with their favourites – their real must-haves. I was overwhelmed by how many offered up their hero products, the key items they couldn’t have lived without.
We’ve split this post into categories so it’s easier to navigate, and I hope you find it useful. This is a list of the best baby products that have worked for me and many of our followers. If you have anything to add, please e-mail us!

The White Noise naptime Tonie in the form of a cute white cat figurine is fabulous for lulling tricky sleepers seamlessly into the land of nod.
White noise contains many frequencies with equal intensities. It’s brilliant at masking noises outside of your child’s sleeping environment, whilst mimicking the continuous sounds your child would have heard in the womb.
It’s this comfortable, womb-like environment that soothes unsettled children to calm them for sleep. What’s more, the repetition of white noise helps kids stay asleep by drowning out noise from the outside world.
Running time 120 minutes.
