4 considerations when selecting baby products

Your body has spent 9 months protecting your precious cargo. Now in the outside world so many products exist that will help fulfil that role as your baby grows and develops. But how do you choose? I am extremely lucky to have a supportive partner and it was he that helped prepare the nursery and find the necessary utilities. He created his own checklist and scoured the internet to access both international and local products as safety was his #1 priority. I will share what products we recommend in upcoming posts and in the meantime you can also use his simple checklist to help with your decisions.

  1. Safety

o   Not all products are created equal when it comes to safety. There are safety ratings on certain products which you can find online.

  1. Lifestyle

o    Using a pram/stroller as an example, if you like to walk and jog with the baby consider how comfortable is it to push around.

  1. Practical

o    In the instance of your car seat, if you use the car frequently consider how easy it is to transfer the baby in and out of the car

  1. Style within Budget
