Baby Starter Pack - What You Need
Is your baby due very soon? If so, then you have probably given plenty of thought to what you are going to need. Pushchairs, high chairs, a cot, but it is important to make sure you remember the small things, not everyone remembers the typical “baby starter pack” so we have put together a quick blog on some things you need to remember.
Baby Wet Wipes
Probably one of the most important things to go in your baby starter bundle is wipes! If you already have children then you will know, you can never have enough wet wipes. Wipes can be used for cleaning your baby's bum, hands, face, pretty much every part of their body. Here at Cheeky Wipes, we like to keep all of our products, eco friendly and reusable, and we have done the same with our selection of wipes. All of our wipes are naturally strong and soft. They don’t require twisting during manufacture, meaning they feel more plush to the feel and heavier than standard cotton. As our wipes are reusable, they can be put in the washing machine at 40C to clean.
Again, a very important one, nappies! A lot of people bulk buy nappies which does make sense as they are used a lot, however, you can also look into reusable nappies. Not only are you then helping the environment but you are also going to save a lot of money as you can just keep reusing the same nappy.
Our nappy wrap is a one size fits most, but it does come with popper adjustments to make sure you do have the choice to make it bigger or smaller. The nappy wraps are made from stretchy knitted polyester fabric with a waterproof lining. We recommend that you will need three nappies for each wrap that you buy, which still works out cost effective. A lot of babies, especially newborns can experience allergic reactions or sensitive skin so we have made sure that our wraps are hypoallergenic and meet Oeko-tex 100 standards, so they are safe to use next to your baby’s skin.
You can find our full range of nappies and accessories here.
Nappy Wet Bag
If you do use reusable nappies, especially when you are on the go, then we highly recommend you purchase a nappy wet bag. After all there is nothing worse than being out with your family and then realising you don’t have anywhere to put your dirty nappies! Our nappy wet bags are made from waterproof, durable TPU, designed to line your nappy bucket or use alone as a bag. We have a range of designs also so you can get the one that you like the most. PS… They also make great laundry bags!
The final must have item that we would like to discuss is changing mats. Now, think about it, there is nothing worse than changing your baby’s bum on your carpet or your bed and then the worse happens and there’s poo all over your covers! Doesn’t sound good does it? Which is why you definitely need to make sure you have a changing mat.
Making sure you choose the right changing mat isn’t as important as having the right nappies or wet wipes, but the more benefits the better, right?
We made our changing mat larger than a normal one as it can then be used for more things, such as play time or naps! The mat has a waterproof plush on one side and then soft absorbent bamboo on the other side, so you are getting the practicality as well as the comfort. The changing mat is great for using at home, but can also be folded up and taken out and about too.
We hope you have found the ideas above useful for your baby starter pack and if you would like to discuss any of our products with us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
