Until you meet your baby, you have no idea how your life is going to change. How it tips on it’s side for a while, before slowly- ever-so slowly- and gently resting back on an even keel. It’s a whirlwind. A beautiful, emotional and wonderful whirlwind, but a whirlwind none the less.
So I’m all for finding ways that help you make it all easier. Knowing about the little things you know you need, and the little things you might not actually need, but want all the same. And the only way to know what these things are- these elusive newborn ‘essentials’? Ask the experts, of course.
Having just welcomed baby number four into my heart, I suppose some could consider me an expert… it’s not a title I would give myself though, when I think back to my woefully packed hospital bag! Sending Ghostwriterdaddy emergency shopping for mittens, booties and hats was not my finest hour, and let’s not talk about the vests and sleepsuits I was sure I had packed… my bag was a disaster. Lucky for others that M&S has made this handy video…
And so on to the exciting news- the launch of M&S Baby!
Compiled by true experts, this is a shopping experience that is centred around seven key moments, to ensure that not only is your hospital bag way better than mine, but you also have everything you need for baby all in one place too.
M&S Baby starts at maternity, with a 12 piece collection of essentials to see you through those wonderful nine months, and moving on to Welcome, a beautiful collection of newborn essentials and must have items for your hospital bag. The next key moments are comprised of the five elements of baby’s first year: clothe (featuring sleep suits and mix/ match outfits), bathe (with baths, towels and toys) , sleep (nursery furniture and accessories) , feed (high chairs, feeding accessories and breastfeeding essentials) and play (colourful range of toys and books). This is unlike anything that M&S have ever done before.
I cannot tell you how much I love the concept of M&S Baby! Featured in six stores across the country ( Bluewater, White City, Stratford City, Cheshire Oaks, Metro Centre, Newcastle and Tamworth) and online too, you can tell that the experts from Avent, BabyBjörn, Dr Brown’s, East Coast Nursery, Joie, MAM, Skip Hop and Vital Baby have been busy selecting the things they know you need and the things they know you’ll love. And me? I love that you can pick up everything that you need in one place- no excuses for forgetting anything now!
