Top Mum Websites

Once you have your baby online shopping will take over your life. Thank the Lord for home delivery (free in most cases) as you barely leave the house for the first 4 weeks.

Note: You partner will be constantly breaking down boxes for recycling and grumbling about the amount of packaging required. ‘how does a maternity bra need 6 strips of bubble cushioning?’

You go online for something practical and essential such as baby bottles, but while you are there you notice the most amazing customised baby hair brush and an adorable fluffy squeaky book for bathtime……

Your door buzzer will be on fire. Ensure it is firmly attached to your outside wall.

If you have downstairs neighbours like I do, give them a cake for they will most certainly end up signing for things.

Get your card ready. Pour that cup of tea. Let’s get shopping…..

Basics for mum and baby: (e.g. breast pads, nappies, prams, Paracetamol, preggy pillows)

Mothercare

Boots Mother and Baby

Electronics: (e.g. humidifier)

Harrods – this sounds extravagant, but I actually got my Bugaboo Buffalo 10% cheaper than it was at Mothercare. Also, if you want luxury gifts for your shower, this is the place to set up the registry
