Most parents will agree that when it comes to buying for their kids, particularly when preparing for the arrival of a new baby, the ongoing question of whether to buy something or not seems to never end. Whether it’s preparing the nursery or stocking up on all of the must have clothes and essentials, knowing what to buy before you buy it can be a huge money (and space) saver. So, what bits and pieces are recommended to buy and what can be avoided? Here are a few to help your decisions.
A baby gym – Baby gyms are far more stimulating and entertaining for a newborn than the floor is, with plenty of vibrant colours and activities to keep them happy for hours.
Plenty of nappies – chances are you’ll have some of these bought for you in the form ofnappy cakes and gift baskets, but you can never have enough. When a baby is young, you will get through loads of them and before you know it, you’ll be at the shop buying more.
A pram – the more manoeuvrable, the better. Bulky travel systems are all well and good but if you want to be able to fold it down for the car boot, or steer it onto a busy bus, you’ll need one that can be lifted and guided with ease. You can get some fabulous, lightweight “suitable from birth” push chairs now that are far easier to use.
Don’t Buy 
Toiletry starter sets – Chances are you won’t need them and it’s far better value for money to pop to the shop to get the things you do need, rather than having baskets full of stuff you’ll never use.
Endless amounts of toys – especially for a newborn! They won’t play with toys, per se, for a couple of months and when they do, they won’t need a toy chest full to the brim. A few age suitable toys are enough.
Top and tail bowls – while they don’t cost much and some parents do like them, they will only be used for a few weeks post-birth, making them a bit of a false economy. Whether you’re on a tight budget and need to be super careful with what you spend, or you’re a little more frivolous but want to make sure you don’t get anything you’ll never use, planning what to buy in advance of actually buying it can help you to save money – money that you can, and surely will, spend on other things!
