As a Beebies Baby Store brand ambassador and soon to be mum of baby boy number two, I’ve been busy trawling the Beebies website for all sorts of essentials for the new arrival. I’ve picked out some of my favourite products to give you some inspiration – starting with a Top 5 Gifts for New Baby. If you’re looking for a thoughtful present for a friend or family member’s little one, or simply want to give people some hints for what to buy for you, I think you should start here!
5 – PurFlo Shleepy
Cute and cuddly Shleepy is a Beebies favourite and would be a perfect gift from an older sibling to their new brother or sister. Shleepy can go anywhere and everywhere with your little one, with a curly tail that clings on to buggy bars and car seats, easy-grip hooves, and a comforting soft texture. Shleepy’s teether toes, made from medical grade silicone, provide welcome relief for sore gums – and he is mercifully fully washable!

4 – Faye and Lou Rainbow Muslins
These multicoloured lovelies were on my first Beebies Wishlist and I’ve just bought myself some as I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a set for Bump! The 7 bright and colourful 100% cotton muslins are beautifully soft and are made from two layers of muslin, making them highly absorbent. They have a multitude of uses for new parents – and the gorgeous colours won’t fade in the wash, which is something you’ll be doing a lot!

3 – Nattou Activity Spirals
Early stimulation of your new baby’s senses is crucial for their development, so giving them fun and safe toys with different sounds and textures to explore is ideal. You could give or receive a lovely gift of one of these cute activity spirals, which will attach to a cot or car seat and entertain little ones with crinkly and rattling hanging toys. Beebies has a range of different designs and characters to choose from to suit your nursery decor.

2 – Nod Pod Baby Blanket
I’ve just bought myself one of these brilliant blankets too (in a gorgeous rainbow stripe design to match the muslins!) and can see it being one of the most useful items when Bump arrives. The Nod Pod is both cosy and practical, being cleverly shaped to cocoon your baby whilst enabling straps from car seats or buggies to hold them safely in place when out and about. It also makes the perfect wrap for naptime, keeping little arms and legs warm and comfortable in lightweight, super soft fleece. It’s available in an array of colours and patterns for both 0-6 and 6-12 months. And it’s machine washable, obviously.

1 – Nova Harley Changing Bags
Nova Harley is the last word in luxury changing bags – and Beebies has a range of them to choose from to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. You would be a very lucky mummy to receive one of these as a gift, but there’s no harm in asking! Each bag contains an array of useful added extras to make life with your new baby so much easier, and for the fashion-conscious mum there is nothing more stylish to hang on your pram.
