Hello everyone and welcome to my website, Practical Shopping For New Mums. I am absolutely delighted to have you here.
My baby story…
So, I am a mother of four. My first three children are in their early 20’s while my fourth child is nine going on 18!
I know that being pregnant comes with a lot of joy and euphoria, I can tell you that for sure, especially for the first baby. And like any other new mum, I wanted to buy everything!
All I needed to do was to browse through a baby catalogue and I would feel a rush that only first time mothers can understand.
And that was shopping for my unborn child. I was out of control. I wanted everything! I shopped for my baby quite alright and being the last of 13 children, my older sisters spoiled me silly.
I had everything I wanted, from the nursery to two year supply of baby clothing, but I left out the most essential things till last minute. A mistake that should have been avoided, if I was smart and deliberate about shopping for baby things.
It would have saved me the endless runs to the supermarket for the baby essentials that kept running out fast. My first few days back from the hospital with my bundle of joy, wouldn’t have been as overwhelming.
Hindsight, they say is 20/20…
And so, 10 years after my third child, my last and final baby arrived. I thought that by now, I would have been over the baby thing and would simply cut to the chase! But no! I was still going to make the same mistakes but for a timely intervention from a dear a friend.
Buy smart, prepare for the money guzzling consumables…
Practical Shopping For New Mums will help you cut to chase! We know that the big spending starts after the baby arrives.
Our aim is to encourage you to buy smart and prepare well ahead for what I call the wet months. I would say, to make hay, while the sun shines.
I hope that from my experience, I may be able to guide you through the most essential baby supplies you would need to have in the coming months. Essentials, I call the baby staples because you need to have more of them, in addition to your well decorated nursery.
