Get Ready For The Arrival Of Your Baby With A Hospital Bag

The Baby Boutique 27/02/2017 0
Packing your Hospital Bag  Preparing for the arrival of a new baby can be both daunting and exciting. Get ready to welcome your new family member and feel more prepared by packing your hospital bag with all of the essentials you need. It’s a good idea to get your hospital bag ready at least two weeks before your due date just in case your little one decides to arrive early.  You’ll need to pack everything you need during the labour and birth and for caring for your baby after he or she is born. As well as the essentials you can choose to put in a few personal items, such as pillows or a blanket from home, to make you feel more comfortable and familiar in the environment. Pick a bag that’s easy to carry but also not difficult to find things in, you don’t want to be rummaging through items when you need something.   You’ll need items for both you and the baby and you can also get your birth partner to pack a few items too, such as drinks and food, a fan or spray and of course a camera to capture a picture of the new arrival. Essentials to pack for you:Your birth plan and hospital notes. While your hospital should have these it’s a good idea to have them on hand just in case. Comfortable clothes are a must....

  Diaper bags don’t have to be ‘mumsy’  Having a baby means you’ll be lugging around lots of bulky items with you wherever you go for at least the next year or so. But don’t worry, your diaper bag doesn’t have to be unstylish, frumpy or ‘mumsy’. There are plenty of trendy but practical options for you to choose from that will make sure you look great while taking a stroll with your bundle of joy and have everything on hand too. While you still want to look good as a new mum, the key thing you want your diaper bag to be is practical. For such small people babies need a lot of items and you’ll want to be able to get to them quickly. Choose a wide bag that has lots of space for everything you need and with large straps that are both comfortable for you to carry and can be looped over your stroller for when you’re taking a walk. Many diaper bags have lots of internal sections and pockets to help you organise all your items. Choose one that suits you and your needs, for instance if you’re bottle feeding a bag with insulated bottle holders will be useful. Pockets that are big enough to hold diapers along with zip up pockets to place pacifiers and any other small items will help keep everything arranged and easy to ge...

  5 Fantastic New School Year Resolutions for Parents Don’t think of September as the end of summer, think of it as an opportunity to revitalise your life by introducing some new (school) year resolutions. Why wait until January to make changes? There are four months until New Year’s Eve - imagine what you could achieve between now and then! If you’re stuck for inspiration, we have some suggestions to motivate you. Revamp Your Beauty RoutineThe average working mother spends around five minutes on her morning beauty routine. That’s less time than it takes to cajole a toddler into their shoes! If you’ve only got 5 or 10 minutes in the morning, then you need an efficient routine that makes it count. Beauty experts agree the key to great makeup is a good base so look at your skincare regime to ensure you're using the right products that will keep your skin looking tip top. A little time invested will keep you looking groomed even when you’ve spent half the night up with a sick baby. Having a signature lip color, such as bold red or classic nude, is a clever beauty trick for looking polished with minimal effort. Finally, invest in a pair of timeless sunglasses that suit your face and hide a multitude of sins. Ke...

Does Your Toddler Need Ettiquette Lessons?

Does Your Toddler Need Ettiquette Lessons?

 Does Your Toddler Need Etiquette Lessons?  We all want our children to do well in life. For some parents, however, it seems you never start too early when it comes to giving your child the tools they need to be wealthy and successful. The marriage of Kate Middleton - the daughter of a flight attendant with a distinctly non-royal pedigree who married the future King of England - has given parents worldwide the knowledge that when it comes to their child’s future social potential, the sky's the limit! First Impressions Parents can help their child make a good first impression by dressing them in the latest designer baby clothing, and transporting them in Orbit Baby G3 - the baby equivalent of a Ferrari, but if their manners let them down, then they will struggle to receive invites to parties and playdates, and miss out socially. Have you considered etiquette lessons for children? Etiquette lessons for a toddler are not as off-the-wall as it may initially sound. It is certainly not unusual in cities like London and New York to have a professional educate children in the right way to present themselves and interact with others. With good social skills, your child will be able to walk into any situation with ...
