Newborn Essentials List with Whites Farm Baby Barn

What do I need for my newborn baby?

With my pregnancy being the second time round, I am so much more relaxed making sure I have everything, in fact, until I visited Whites Farm Baby Barn for a consultation the other day, I didn’t know what I needed. Yes, I have done the baby thing before but it is surprising how quickly you forget. So with the help of the barn, I have put together a list of baby essentials to help new families, as well as those brave (or mad) enough to do it all over again!

This list is just a recommendation and the models mentioned are those that are popular and sell well at the barn. I know how much of a minefield it can be with choosing products as there is just so much choice these days. Look out for the discount code at the end!


The owners Sara and Abbie also offer a hot coffee and a comfy sofa for their consultation service to go through your needs. Whether it’s what to buy for your newborn, what you need for your nursery, car seat or push chair advice, they can discuss it with you. They are equally happy to discuss all of this over the phone. Just contact them to book an appointment.  01787 336823
