Five Essential Items To Make Life As A New Mum Easier

Five Essential Items To Make Life As A New Mum Easier

Life as a new mother is tough; it’s one of the biggest challenges any woman will face in her lifetime. There are new skills to learn, new schedules to stick to, and a whole new person you have to get to know – your little one. It’s a whirlwind of emotion, intensified only by the sleep-deprivation that will undoubtedly occur!

During this daunting time, many women look for products and items that can help them in any way possible. From making nursing easier to making the most of their downtime when baby is napping, there are a multitude of products out there which can help new mothers adjust to this challenging lifestyle, while finding their own way as a parent. Take a look at our must-have essentials:

A comfortable chair

Whether it’s a rocking chair or simply a comfortable armchair, you’ll need somewhere comfortable to sit during those first few weeks – especially if you’re breastfeeding. The soothing motion of a rocking chair can also help babies drift off to sleep, which is helpful for sleep-deprived mums adjusting to their new schedule. You’ll spend a lot of time in this chair during the first year of your little one’s life, so it’s certainly worth ensuring it’s durable and cosy!

White noise

White noise generators are very popular for soothing babies. Some babies can take a while to adjust to total silence outside of the womb – after all, they’ve grown accustomed to the constant sounds of your body moving around them. A white noise generator can provide a little background sound to help your baby relax or calm them down.

A baby sling

Holding your baby against your body in a sling frees up your arms and makes breastfeed easy and discreet. You’ll never realise how much you use your arms until you have a baby in them around-the-clock! With a sling, you’ll be able to tackle some light housework or cook yourself a nice meal – and all with the added comfort of knowing that your little one is safe and secure against your body.

‘Me-time’

Every precious moment you get to yourself as a new mum should be cherished and appreciated. Once or twice a week, if you can, it’s worth designating a half-hour slot where you can hand over the baby to your partner, a family member or a friend, so that you can focus on yourself. Take a bubble bath, go for a walk, have a nap, read the next chapter of a book – take some time out and focus on yourself.

Comfortable clothes

Your body will still be in recovery after giving birth – there’s no need to pressure yourself to slip back into your skinny jeans or pencil skirt. Treat yourself to some comfortable clothes – garments that you can curl up for a quick nap in, while still being able to welcome an unexpected houseguest eager to see your little one. Think ribbed tops, yoga pants, fleecy jackets and fur-lined slippers. Aim for natural materials like cotton (and try to make sure they’re machine-washable!).

New legislation for Booster Seats

Yesterday it was widely reported that the legislation will soon be changing for car seat boosters (also known as booster cushions) without a back. 

The legislation will take place from December 2016 and from then you will no longer be able to buy a booster seat for children shorter than 125cm or weighing less than 22kg.

Abi Halpin, founder of Betty Bramble, said "We welcome these changes as we feel parents aren't always fully aware of the lack of protection booster seats offer. Firstly they do not protect the head in any way and they don't position the seat beat in a secure way across the child's body.  We feel this is a great step forward in child safety."

Betty Bramble Footmuffs on Netmums

We were thrilled to recently spot our footmuffs on the Netmums website.   Betty Bramble were featured in an article called “10 baby brands you might not have heard of... but need to” written by a well-known and very experienced journalist called Sarah Lafarge.

The article selected ten brands that are less well known amongst the nursery giants.  We were proudly placed amongst businesses such as Bumbleride and The Little Green Sheep.  Our Fantastic Mr.Fox in red and blue was chosen for the article, which we also stock in pink with black or silver grey with black.

Sarah’s article focussed on some “hidden gems” for the reader to discover and were delighted to be included.

Pop over to Netmums to read the full article.
