Newborn Baby Shopping Checklist

Everything you will need for your baby for the first six weeks

Confused about what you should buy for your baby? Just tick off the items on our definitive list and you’ll have everything you need to see you through those first six weeks.

Shopping for your baby can be rather overwhelming as there is just so much attractive baby equipment to choose from, that making a decision on the items that would be most suitable for you and your lifestyle can be difficult.

You may find it helpful to talk to other mums about the more expensive products you'll need to buy, such as the pram and a car seat, to find out what they recommend.

Things you definitely need

  • Cot (plus mattress, sheets and blankets)
  • Car seat
  • Pram/buggy/travel system *
  • Six sleepsuits/ long sleeved suits
  • Six vests/ short sleeved suits
  • Two cardigans/ jackets in winter
  • Shawl or snow suit
  • Hat, mittens and bootees
  • Changing mat
  • Nappies and nappy sacks
