Top 10 Must Have Baby Items For New Moms

  • By Abhinav

Soon after your baby’s born, people are always quick to give you advice on what the most important things you need to have for your baby. But they often fail to mention key details. Sure you’ll get diapers and nappies but what kind? How many and how often?

Read on to learn more about these baby items for new mothers, how to pick the right ones and everything else you need to know about them.

Here are the top 10 must have baby items for new moms

Your infant will be busy doing 3 things: eat, sleep and poop. So let’s start with the more obvious items you’ll need

  1. Feeding Essentials
  • Wipes – You’ll need soft, absorbent & safe cotton or muslin wipes, like these. Soft on the skin, hard on the mess! These are reusable and machine washable! You’ll need at least 4-6 wipes.
  • Burp Cloths – Another important feeding essential are burp cloths. This one will be hanging over your shoulder for quick cleaning! Grab a minimum of 4!
  • Towels – Lastly, if the wipes and the burp cloths don’t get the job done, you’ll have your trusty towel. Anti-bacterial, highly absorbent, ultra-soft, hypoallergenic & can be used as wrap or a swaddle too! Safe to buy at least 2.
  1. Sleep Essentials
  • Blankets – Your baby’s delicate skin deserves a blanket that is antibacterial, anti-allergenic, safe on sensitive skin, ultra-soft, and made of material that is more suited for all weather conditions, like organic cotton or muslin. In case one goes into the wash, it’s best to have at least 3 blankets!
  • Beds – Since it’s safer to have your baby sleep next to you, a silk Kapok bed specially designed for babies will be a great choice
  • Pillows – Your little one’s delicate head needs to rest on a soft and firm pillow that supports it properly and it should also prevent him/her from rolling onto their sides. Enter the infant pillow!
  1. Diapers / Nappies

 This is an obvious pick but what you need to know is that instead of a one-time use diaper, choose a more economical and eco-friendly option like reusable nappies made from organic cotton. Stock up with at least 3-4.

4. Skincare Essentials

 As you already know, your baby’s skin requires the utmost care and attention. Choosing the right baby soap, shampoo, moisturizer/lotion, diaper rash cream & sunscreen means considering these important factors

  • Safe on baby skin
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Pediatrician approved
  • No fragrance, no harsh chemicals
  • Hypoallergenic
  1. Baby Thermometer & Nail clipper

A baby thermometer can not only help you track your tiny tot’s body temperature, you can also use it to check the bath water temperature. And since your baby’s nails grow really fast it’s good to have a baby nail clipper so that he/she doesn’t scratch themselves!
 

  1. Swaddle Cloth

 Coming to the sleep essentials, a swaddle cloth definitely comes first as it is a comforting, safe and wonderfully efficient item to help put your baby to sleep with ease. Also made out of organic muslin, it’s perfect for your baby!

  1. Thottil (Baby Hammock)

A traditional Indian way to rock your baby to sleep in a cloth hammock, a Thottil is a perfect addition to the list of must haves. A great alternative to cribs and bassinets!

  1. Snuggle Sac (Sleepsuit)

 Similar to the swaddle cloth, a lightweight snuggle sac is meant to mimic the embrace of a mother’s womb. It will lull your little one right to sleep in its soft and warm snuggle!

  1. Jablas

Jablas are super breathable, ultra-soft, eco-friendly half sleeves that a baby can cozy up into. Dress your baby in a comfy and safe material that will also brighten up your day because of the adorable prints! These affordable baby clothes can be stocked up for the summer!

  1. Dry Sheet/Baby Bed Protector

 As mentioned earlier, having your baby sleep next to you is preferable as it decreases the risk of SIDS. But it also means changing your bed cover multiple times. So the last item on this list is also one that’ll save you the most energy because the mattress/bed protectors are meant to ensure that your bed stays dry!

It’s super absorbent, breathable and soft. It’s also waterproof, antibacterial and made of premium quality fabric!

There you have it! The top 10 must have baby items that every new mom needs to have. Stocking up on these essential items will ease your burden of figuring out how and what to buy for your baby.

Taking Your Baby Out For The First Time

  • By Abhinav

One of the many ‘firsts’ that your baby will experience is being outside for the first time. Although the first few months with your newborn can be a joyous experience, there are always doubts and questions in the back of your mind. Is it safe to take my baby outside? What are the unforeseen challenges I might face while out with my baby? Will he/she be comfortable?

Worry not as there are some easy tips to remember when you’re planning your first outing with your baby.

Is it safe to take my baby outside?

Many parents worry about taking a very young baby outside the house. In fact, in some cultures like our own, moms and babies are isolated inside for a month or longer. But there’s no medical reason not to take a healthy baby out of the house.

Fresh air and a change of pace can be good for people of any age, including babies. It’s crowds that you’ll need to avoid.

When can I take my baby outside for the first time?

As mentioned, you can head out the door on day one with your newborn if he/she’s properly dressed, you avoid very extreme weather and you stay out of direct sunlight.

Babies and their new parents benefit from a change of scene, so a short stroll in your community or a feeding session on a park bench is a nice respite.

There are some precautions you should take before you step outside with your baby.

Things I need to know before going out with my baby

  1. Dress your newborn appropriately – Remember that you need to dress your baby for the weather – not too hot and not too cold. If you yourself feel hot then remove a layer of clothing off your baby and if you’re feeling chilly, then add an extra layer of clothing.
  2. Plan small – Your first outing with your baby needn’t be a long journey, instead plan a short walk outside or a short trip to the local park. Over time, your baby will start enjoying his/her trips outside more and that’s when you can start planning a longer adventure like a picnic or a trip to the beach.
  3. Avoid crowds – Short walks outside are generally advised, whereas crowded places like malls are not. It’s exposure to other people that can cause a baby to become sick. So, avoid crowded places as a general rule of thumb. Distance yourself and your baby from strangers as much as possible. Finally, stay away from anyone who’s sick.
  4. Meeting friends & family – Most doctors will okay visits to see family and friends after the month-2 round of vaccines, but because COVID-19 is still among us, the recommendation is to stay home with your own immediate family and not socialize with others. You can however introduce your baby virtually, using zoom or skype or any of the myriad video calling apps.
  5. Stock up! – If you’re going to take your baby out for more than an hour or so, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared. Stock your diaper bag with changing supplies, extra clothes, feeding supplies, and any necessary medicines if needed.

Baby essentials for his/her first outing

Like mentioned above, it’s good to be prepared with the necessary supplies when stepping out with your newborn for more than an hour. And these are the most important ones to keep in mind:

  • Extra clothes – You can never say when you might need to change your baby, so always take an extra couple of pairs of comfy clothes. Even simple Jablas will do.
  • Diapers or Nappies – It goes without saying that if you’re stocking with extra clothes you need to stock up with extra diapers or nappies. Also, carry a diaper caddy or a plastic bag
  • Baby food & feeding bottles – Whether or not your baby’s breastfeeding, it’s good to carry formula just in case. And in extension, clean feeding bottles
  • Wipes & Burp clothsWipes and burp cloths are a must if you’re going to be feeding your baby while outside
  • Travel blankets – You can use it as a stroller shade or a light blanket. You can also use a swaddle cloth for this purpose
  • Toys – A simple wooden rattle to keep a smile on your precious baby’s face will suffice
  • Medicines – If your baby has any prescription medicines, make sure to carry them along with you

So these are the simple tips to keep your baby safe when you plan your first outing with your baby. Although you might at first feel anxious, taking these simple precautions and preparing beforehand will make your baby’s first outing a memorable one.

10 Superfoods For A Healthy Pregnancy

  • By Abhinav

Prenatal exercises are definitely beneficial for reducing stress, increasing tolerance for pain during labor and for a healthy baby. But it is just as important to maintain a well-balanced diet for a healthy mommy-to-be and your baby.

Since you’re eating for two, you’ll have to make sure that you have nutritious and healthy foods. And we know that you don’t have hours of free time to research and do food preparation. So we’ve created this list of superfoods you can eat during pregnancy.

Here are the top 10 superfoods to have for a healthy pregnancy (in no particular order)

  1. Spinach & Other Leafy Greens

Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese, but most importantly, folic acid. Phew! That’s a long list of nutrients!

If you’re not a fan of spinach, then try having other leafy greens like Cabbage, Drumstick Leaves (Moringa), Fenugreek (Methi) or Mustard Leaves (Sarson).

  1. Beans

Beans are powerhouses of nutrition – they contain loads of fibre, protein, iron, folate, calcium, and zinc. There are many different types to choose from, be it chickpeas, lentils, black beans, soy beans, or other!

Not only are beans packed with nutritional punch, they’re also very filling.

  1. Dry Fruits, Nuts & Seeds

Dry fruits, nuts and seeds are the real MVPs on this list as they really are the superfoods to be had while pregnant.

Loaded with protein, fiber, a whole host of vitamins and minerals, dry fruits like raisins, prunes, figs, dates, etc. are great for pregnant women.

Similarly, nuts like almonds, walnuts, pistachios & peanuts are jam packed with brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids.

Last but not least, seeds! Pumpkin & Chia seeds are the two most important superfoods to be had while pregnant. They have antioxidants, omega-3 fats and are also great at limiting the absorption of sugars, which will help inhibit the amount of sugar your baby absorbs.

  1. Salmon

While you should definitely avoid fish that are high in mercury like Mackerel & Tuna, Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and low in mercury. It is also loaded with protein and Vitamin B, great for your baby’s brain development.

You can also have other lean meats like Chicken & Turkey breasts.

  1. Whole Grains


Enriched, whole-grain breads and cereals are fortified with folic acid and iron and have more fiber than white bread and rice. Work whole grains into your day: oatmeal for breakfast, a sandwich on whole-grain bread at lunch, and whole-wheat pasta or brown rice for dinner.

Other than oatmeal and brown rice, a few other nutritious whole grains you can incorporate into your diet are quinoa, millet, barley, couscous & buckwheat.

  1. Eggs


Eggs are a great pregnancy superfood – so long as you eat them fully cooked. They’re packed with vitamins and minerals and high-quality protein and fats. Eggs also contain choline which is an essential nutrient for healthy brain development.

How can you have your egg? Enjoy a simple hard boiled egg or egg bhurji or even a mildly spicy egg curry. There’s no wrong answer here!

  1. Fruits

We’ve already mentioned the benefits of having dried fruits but there are some fresh fruits you can have that are great sources of essential nutrients and vitamins.

Here are the top 10 safe and nutritious fruits you can have while pregnant:

  • Bananas
  • Oranges
  • Mangoes
  • Pears
  • Apples
  • Guava
  • Avocado (Yes, it’s a fruit!)
  • Apricots
  • Pomegranates
  • And most importantly, berries!

I can’t stress enough how important it is to have berries during your pregnancy. Berries are a great source of Vitamin C, potassium, fiber, and folic acid — and they provide amazing benefits, such as protecting cells from damage. You can have Strawberries, Blueberries, & Raspberries.
 

  1. Dairy Products

Greek Yogurt – Protein-rich foods are necessary for forming healthy nerve cells in the mother’s womb for the cognitive development of the baby. Probiotic foods like Greek yogurt are an amazing way to throw in a little calcium for your baby’s bone development as well.

Cheese – Cheese provides concentrated amounts of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus for your unborn baby to grow strong bones.

Paneer – I don’t think I need to sell you on this but here goes, Paneer or cottage cheese is a great source of calcium and protein, so yea, go ahead and enjoy your favourite paneer dish!

  1. Super Veggies

Apart from healthy leafy greens like spinach, there are a few other super healthy vegetables that you can add into your diet.

Here are some super veggies to have while pregnant:

  • Broccoli
  • Peas
  • Carrots
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Bell Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Beetroots
  • Drumsticks


These veggies are rich sources of energy, vitamins, minerals, and fibre. You can have around 500 gms of cooked veggies each day.

  1. Pulses (Dal)

Dal is an important source of protein. Vegetarian women who are expecting need to consume plenty of pulses and lentils to ensure that they meet the necessary protein intake.

Similar to beans & lentils, pulses have many benefits for pregnant women. They help with digestion, strengthen bones, prevent anaemia and improve foetal brain growth. Enjoy a variety of dal like Urad Dal (Black Gram), Moong Dal (Mung Beans), Masoor Dal (Red Lentils), etc.

And there you have it, a great choice of superfoods that you can start having easily and also helps you maintain a balanced diet.

Why Muslin Is Best For Babies

  • By Abhinav

If you’re a new parent you know by now that babies can be fussy at times. And you obviously would want to make sure that your precious little bundle of joy isn’t uncomfortable. And that also includes choosing the right material for his/her clothes, wipes, blankets, towels, etc.

Many materials are simply too heavy and harsh for a baby’s delicate skin. Luckily, that isn’t the case with muslin.

Muslin dates back to ancient times and gets its name from Masulipatnam, the port town in India where it was originally traded. The soft cotton fabric remains popular today, especially among new parents.

Muslin is made out of cotton and it is an extremely fine and loosely-woven material. Think of it as an improved version of cotton which has just as many, if not more, benefits than cotton.


Benefits of Muslin cloth for babies

  • More light & breathable than cotton. Perfect choice for baby blankets
  • Owing to its finer weave than cotton, Muslin is oh-so-soft on your baby’s skin. Suitable for swaddles
  • Burping, wiping and cleaning your baby are the most well known uses for muslin cloths as they’re more absorbent than cotton
  • It functions well as a sunshade. You can also use them in strollers, travel cots, car seats, nursing covers and more
  • One of the most unique benefits of Muslin is that it gets softer with each wash

Muslin clothes really are essential for any new parent and certainly they are the perfect choice for your baby.

Here are some great Muslin products that you can stock up on for your baby:

Muslin Nappies

Stuffed Muslin Newborn Nappy – Blue

Muslin Jablas

Organic Muslin Jablas – Bow Bow (6-12 months)

Muslin Towels

Large Muslin Bath Towel- Fancy Feathers

Muslin Hooded Wrap- Bird Box

Muslin Swaddles

Organic Muslin Swaddle 2Pc Combo Pack- Bird Box
Muslin Wipes, Burp Cloths & Drool Bibs

Assorted Combo – Muslin Wipes

Burpy Bib – Bow Bow

Reversible Bandana/Drool Bib – Little Pilot

Muslin Blankets & Sleepsuits (Snuggle Sacs)

Muslin Blanket – Bird box

Lots of Love – 0-6M Snuggle Sac

What happy parents say:

Oh, my Jesus😍😍😍😍 I am just loving it. I had tears in my eyes when I touched the shirt. It’s the first time I’m buying muslin cotton & I’m totally satisfied with the material. Thanks a lot🙏🙏”

“Got the blanket from BeeLittle. Absolutely love love love it♥️♥️♥️♥️”

“I received the products I ordered from BeeLittle. Thank you so much. Your products are simply superb & I just loved it. The cloth quality is superb. 😊♥️”
