Of course, choose the items that fit best with your lifestyle, and when setting up your registry, be specific on what colours you’d like so that the gifts will match your home.

Friends and family stopping by the stores can also access your list in-store so they’ll know exactly what you need.

 

Sleeping

Keep babies safe while sleeping and don’t put anything in the cot aside from the sheets or protector sheet and a swaddle for newborns. This reduces their risk of being choked, strangled or suffocated.

 

Cots

What we love about the Stokke Sleepi is how it can grow with your child into a big kid bed

 

For cots, we suggest getting expandable ones that grow together with your child. For example, the Stokke Sleepi Bed ($1,499 with mattress) can last your little one from birth all the way till he/she is 10 years old. Just use the Junior Extension Kit to convert it into a big kid bed. The bed is made of sustainably sourced solid beech wood, beech laminate for the curved elements and beech plywood for the plates.

Accessories for this bed include:

 

The eco-friendly Boori Eton Expandable Cot Bed can also grow with your children and transform into a full-size single bed.

 

Another option is the Boori Eton Expandable Cot bed ($999), that uses sustainable solid Australian Araucaria and yellow poplar wood. This is then finished in the Eco-Blend Bio-Paint made with renewable plant extracts. Growing with your child, the Boori Expandable Cot transforms from a cot to a toddler bed and then to a full-size single bed for up to 12 year olds with the conversion kit. Pair this with a cot mattress that’s 132 by 70cm, like this mattress ($69) from Lazada. For fitted sheets, try Bubba Blue ($40) from Lazada.

 

 

Co-Sleepers

Safely co-sleep with your baby using the DockATot Deluxe+ Dock.

 

Depending on your beliefs, co-sleeping or bedsharing is widely used among new parents to foster bonding and catch up on some much needed rest. To prevent the dangers of suffocating your baby, we recommend adding a DockATot Deluxe + Dock ($319) between baby and parents so your child has their own cosy space, and makes the co-sleeping experience much safer.

Additionally, the multifunctional DockATot also doubles as a bonding, play space, nursing and changing product. Plus, you can easily bring it with you on your travels with the Deluxe Transport Bag ($99). Additional covers ($129) are available as well.

Keeping Babies Warm

Keep babies warm while they’re sleeping with Cambrass’ long-sleeved playsuits.

 

Babies do not adjust to temperature changes as well as adults do, hence to keep them warm, the use of a swaddle or baby blanket is recommended. We love the cute prints on the Little Palmerhouse Muslin Swaddle ($38.90), which can also be used as a nursing cover, crib sheet, stroller cover or for tummy time. Your babies can wear a short sleeved onesie or romper underneath. Otherwise, choose long-sleeved playsuits like these from Cambrass (without the swaddles), which regulate your baby’s temperature so he/she can sleep comfortably.

View the full collection of swaddles and blankets here..

 

 

Feeding Essentials

 

Breast Pumps

The world’s first relaxing breast pump, mums can get a massage while expressing milk.

 

Start your breastfeeding journey with Hegen PCTO™ Double Electric Breast Pump ($450). Included with this pump are several items, namely two PCTO™ Pump Body with seal and valve, a kneading ring, two Hegen Breast Milk Storage Containers and Breast Milk Storage Lids. This can be used as a single or double pump to express and then store breastmilk right into the milk storage containers, so nothing is wasted.

Additionally the pump is designed to be efficient and comfortable, so mothers can express, store and feed easily. Even better, the unique kneading massage feature also helps relieve body aches and sore muscles, while stimulating milk supply.

 

 

Feeding and Cleaning Up

Easily express, store and feed your baby just by swapping out the lids.

 

Once you’re ready to feed your baby, simply swap the storage lids for the feeding lids. Designed with an elliptical, off-centre teat, this closely mimics the natural shape of the breast to minimise nipple confusion. You can also swap the teats to follow your baby’s feeding speed, slow, medium or fast ($13.50 for a pack of two teats).

Finally, keep your bottles clean with the Bottle Brush & Teat Cleaner ($11.50), where the brush can even reach the tip of the teat to ensure a thorough clean. Place the bottles on the drying rack ($19.90) and up to dry.

Nursing Bra

This nursing bra can see you through pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond.

 

Other essentials include a good nursing bra like this one from Bravado. This multi-purpose Body Silk Seamless Nursing bra ($69.90) works while you’re pregnant as a maternity bra and then switches to a nursing bra with the Bra Conversion Kit. The nursing clips are very easy to undo and can be done one-handed. Additionally this style has been certified to be free from harmful substances.

 

 

For Nursing

Nurse your child in public with this Bebe Au Lait nursing cover. The top has an opening so you can ensure your baby is latching properly.

 

While nursing your baby, he/she can rest his/her head and shoulders on a small Cambrass Nursing Pillow ($69). The pillow also provides you with additional arm support, reducing tension in the wrist, back and elbow. Additionally, you can also use this as a neck pillow.

Ensure baby is properly latched while breastfeeding in public with the Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers ($55 and up). Featuring an open neckline, mum and baby can maintain eye contact, and mum can ensure that baby is feeding well. This award-winning nursing cover is a celebrity favourite as well.

 

 

Burp cloths, bibs and nipple cream

Soothe cracked nipples with the Aromababy Barrier Balm.

 

Other necessities include burp cloths and bibs. The Little Palmerhaus Burp N Bib Cloth ($15.90) can work for both functions. Its larger size gives mums and dads more shoulder coverage, and effectively absorbs baby’s drool and dribbles. Otherwise, choose from a wide range of bibs, whether they’re neckerchief types, or soft bibs that catch stray bits of food.

Besides soothing sunburn, dry lips and chafing, try the Aromababy Barrier Balm ($29.90), which uses natural oils to moisturise and provide a protective layer on the skin and help cracked or sore nipples. These natural oils include organic evening primrose, Vitamin E and calendula oils, and can also soothe nappy rash.

 

 

Diapering

 

Diapers and Wet Wipes

One of the most important items to get for your baby is comfortable diapers.

 

For diapers, we suggest trying a few different brands before you settle on the one that works for your baby. Common criteria to look out for include comfort, longer liquid retention, wetness indicator and gentler materials for the diaper. Places to get diapers include Lazada, as well as supermarkets and pharmacies. If you want to be slightly more adventurous and eco-friendly, try cloth diapering and get super cute designs from Pupsik Studio. Make sure you have a diaper pail or dustbin nearby to throw the diapers into.

Prevent nappy rash by applying the Mustela Vitamin Barrier Cream.

 

Other essentials include baby wipes like the 100 per cent water wipes from Pigeon, and diaper rash cream. For example, the Mustela Vitamin Barrier Cream ($13.50 for 100ml) can be used every day, even on babies newly-discharged from neonatal care. Clinically tested in extreme conditions, this cream has 98 per cent natural, fragrance and preservative-free ingredients. Apply a thick layer onto the baby’s clean and dry diaper area every time they’re changed.

 

 

Changing Table

Reduce back pain by changing your baby on the Stokke Home Changer atop the Home Dresser.

 

Change baby safely on the Stokke Home Changer ($379), which locks onto the Stokke Home Dresser ($799). The changer includes protective sides and a padded mattress so babies can’t roll off. Nevertheless, try your best not to look away from your baby. Better still, the storage box on the changer helps you keep all the above essentials on hand. For additional storage, stash baby’s clothes and toys in the three soft-closing drawers of the dresser.

 

 

Nursery Essentials

 

Rocker

Let your baby develop motor skills and rock themselves in this Babybjörn bouncer.

 

Need to put your baby down for a while so you can take a shower or prepare their bottle? Put them in the Babybjörn Bouncer Bliss Mesh ($289), where the bouncer moves with your children. This helps them develop motor skills and balance and is suitable for little ones till they reach two years old. Additionally, the baby bouncer supports your baby’s neck, back and head well, while also evenly distributing their weight on the seat. After your child is able to sit without help, turn the fabric seat around to become a chair instead.

 

 

Other Nursery Accessories

Keep track of your baby even in the shower. An LED light will indicate if your baby is crying.

 

Other accessories include a night light like the Béaba Happy two-in-one movable night light ($79), which works as a table lamp, and when kids are older, they can bring it around with them to head to the toilet in the middle of the night.

With a range of up to 350m, the Béaba MiniCall Audio Baby Monitor ($99) has a battery life of 25 hours, and is shock and water-resistant. This means you can take a shower with the monitor to ensure your baby is not crying. Worried about not hearing your baby in the shower? Look out for the LED lights instead, which indicate your baby is crying. You can also use this as a travel baby monitor. Of course, this is BPA, phthalate and lead-free.

 

 

For Learning and Playing

 

Teething Toys

Help your baby soothe their teething gums with Sophie the Giraffe.

 

One of the favourite teething toys is the Sophie the Giraffe ($39.90). Her contrasting spots are attention-catching for your baby’s developing eyesight, becoming a comforting object for him/her. Made of 100 per cent natural rubber and food-grade paints, babies can chew on her safely, helping to soothe their sore gums. Just 18cm in height, Sophie is also easy for little hands to grasp. Additionally, Sophie’s squeaker helps to stimulate his hearing.

 

Rattles

Aside from a rattle ring, the Skip Hop Bandana Buddies ($34.90) facilitates multi-sensory play. It’s also a soft toy and teether, with a range of textures, patterns and sounds. Mums can also wear the bandana teether toy around their wrists for quick access. It also attaches to strollers, car seats or infant carriers for on the go entertainment for your little one.

 

Playmat

Kids can “pick” their own veggies and store them in the pocket, as well as practice tummy time.

 

For more playtime, get your little one a Skip Hop Farmstand Grow & Play Activity Gym ($169), where he/she can explore the various fruits and veggies. The playmat also has fold-up sides for tummy time play. Babies can also pick their own veggies and place them in a cute side pocket. As your baby ages, you can remove the arches and use them as a growth chart.

 

Stuffed Toys

Personalise one of the super cute Jellycat stuffed toys at Motherswork with the new baby’s name.

 

Another favourite is the ultra-soft Jellycat stuffed toys ($27.90 and up), with a range of cute bunnies, monkeys, unicorns and octopuses, to name a few. These are safe for newborns and above. Each toy surpasses the European Safety Standard for toys and comes in a bevy of gorgeous pastel shades.

 

 

Building Blocks

Let your babies develop their skills with these eco-friendly building blocks.

 

Finally, help your child build his/her motor skills and imagination with building blocks. The most environmentally friendly option is the Green Toys Block Set ($38.90) with 18 coloured, lightweight blocks that are designed to be easily gripped and stacked. Little ones can build castles and towers and more. These are made from 100 per cent recycled plastic.

 

 

Baby Books

Try these books where babies can explore the various textures.

 

Stimulate your baby’s senses by reading to them, and bonding with them over baby books. These books are designed with various textures, such as animals’ fur, so their fingers can explore while their minds develop.

Medical

 

Nail Care

Easily and safely file down your baby’s fingernails.

 

As it might be quite nerve-racking to cut their tiny fingernails, try the Haakaa Baby Nail Care Set ($39.90). After you’ve attached the trimmer pad that’s suitable for your baby, you can gradually file down his/her nails without any sharp edges. This prevents them from accidentally scratching themselves. Even parents can file their nails with this.

 

 

Nasal Aspirator

Help relieve congestion in your baby’s nose with the NoseFrida Aspirator Bundle Set ($22.90). First, squirt the gentle saline solution into your baby’s nose, then suck out the congestion via the tube. Don’t worry, there’s a filter to block the gross stuff from reaching your mouth. Once the tube is filled up, throw away the filter and wash the insides of the tubes. Now, your baby should be able to breathe normally again. This is great for children up to three years old. Additionally, it’s also BPA and phthalate free, and dishwasher safe. Pigeon has a similar nose cleaner.

Clothing

This super cute Baa Baa Sheepz short-sleeved romper is great for newborns to sleep in.

 

When registering for baby clothes, be sure to add a few different sizes, as babies grow pretty quickly. While you could get a few fancier rompers when you’re bringing your little one out, at home opt for simpler designs. Adorable options include this short-sleeved romper from Baa Baa Sheepz, which is made out of incredibly soft eco-friendly bamboo fibres. No pesticides or chemicals have been used, and this romper is also hypoallergenic.

Other short-sleeved, slightly dressier options include the Le Petit Society Mouse Series - Baby Boy Chambray Suspender Romper ($52, sizes start from three months and above) and the Baby Party Romper in Grey ($48).

See the full list of Baby clothes.

Keep your babies warm with accessories like hats, and socks. For hats, try the reversible LASSIG Sun Hat ($24.90) for 50+ UV and sun protection. The set of three pairs of socks from Cambrass ($19) are very stretchable, and easily washable. Hence they are comfortable for your newborns without being too tight.

 

 

Laundry Detergent

Clean tough stains with the Laundry Lover.

 

Wash baby’s - and everyone’s - clothes with the Nimble Baby Laundry Lover ($27.90). This detergent is made from 88 per cent naturally-derived ingredients, free from irritating enzymes, optical brighteners and dyes.

This detergent can be used for hand washing or for washing machines.

The Travel Crib also complies with the safety standards for folding cribs and national fire safety requirements.

 

 

Baby Carriers

The versatile Ergobaby 360 Omni allows you to wear your babies in several different positions, inward or forward-facing, and side or back carry.

 

Perfect for mummies who adore pink, the Ergobaby Omni 360 Carrier Hello Kitty ($339), is a perfect fit for all parents. The Omni 360 grows with your baby from the first week all the way to four years. Babies should first face inward till they’re about six months old, when they can face forward. The Omni 360 also allows for hip carry and back carry. Even better, when your baby is hungry, you can breastfeed him/her on the go, either in the hip position or front-inward positions.

Change baby safely on the Stokke Home Changer ($379), which locks onto the Stokke Home Dresser ($799). The changer includes protective sides and a padded mattress so babies can’t roll off. Nevertheless, try your best not to look away from your baby. Better still, the storage box on the changer helps you keep all the above essentials on hand. For additional storage, stash baby’s clothes and toys in the three soft-closing drawers of the dresser.

 

 

Nursery Essentials

 

Rocker

Let your baby develop motor skills and rock themselves in this Babybjörn bouncer.

 

Need to put your baby down for a while so you can take a shower or prepare their bottle? Put them in the Babybjörn Bouncer Bliss Mesh ($289), where the bouncer moves with your children. This helps them develop motor skills and balance and is suitable for little ones till they reach two years old. Additionally, the baby bouncer supports your baby’s neck, back and head well, while also evenly distributing their weight on the seat. After your child is able to sit without help, turn the fabric seat around to become a chair instead.

 

 

Other Nursery Accessories

Keep track of your baby even in the shower. An LED light will indicate if your baby is crying.

 

Other accessories include a night light like the Béaba Happy two-in-one movable night light ($79), which works as a table lamp, and when kids are older, they can bring it around with them to head to the toilet in the middle of the night.

With a range of up to 350m, the Béaba MiniCall Audio Baby Monitor ($99) has a battery life of 25 hours, and is shock and water-resistant. This means you can take a shower with the monitor to ensure your baby is not crying. Worried about not hearing your baby in the shower? Look out for the LED lights instead, which indicate your baby is crying. You can also use this as a travel baby monitor. Of course, this is BPA, phthalate and lead-free.

Easily and safely file down your baby’s fingernails.

 

As it might be quite nerve-racking to cut their tiny fingernails, try the Haakaa Baby Nail Care Set ($39.90). After you’ve attached the trimmer pad that’s suitable for your baby, you can gradually file down his/her nails without any sharp edges. This prevents them from accidentally scratching themselves.

Nasal Aspirator

Help relieve congestion in your baby’s nose with the NoseFrida Aspirator Bundle Set ($22.90). First, squirt the gentle saline solution into your baby’s nose, then suck out the congestion via the tube. Don’t worry, there’s a filter to block the gross stuff from reaching your mouth. Once the tube is filled up, throw away the filter and wash the insides of the tubes. Now, your baby should be able to breathe normally again. This is great for children up to three years old. Additionally, it’s also BPA and phthalate free, and dishwasher safe. Pigeon has a similar nose cleaner.
