Luxury Baby Items -what to buy for Baby before birth

I spy with my little eye… A whole bunch of seriously gorgeous baby Items and accessories. Since I fell pregnant now all I want to look at are beautiful things I can buy for baby on the way and what to buy for baby before birth. Even more so now that I know I am having a girl. I am sure I am not the only pregnant mom looking for baby items so here is a list of a few items I have seen to buy online that are just amazing and on my wishlist.

Lets start with the Sebastian Baby Wear Mongolian fleece blankets. And dear lord do these look cuddly! I can just imagine myself snuggling up with baby on cold mornings and evenings with this stunningly soft fleece blanket. They come in a range of pasterns and colors and are available to buy online HERE on the Sebastian Baby Wear site for R420. The blankets are 1m x 90cm and have double layer fleece with a comforter inner and a contrast satin trim. I want the cute purple Elephant one, which one do you like?

Next on my list is the Baby Sense carrier sling. I never had a sling or wrap with my first child, I did not feel the need for it, but now with the second baby I kind of need the sling because how am I supposed to manage baby and run after my toddler?! Baby Sense is a great brand and they actually have more to offer than the sling, They have cuddle wraps, blankets, dummy clips and loads more. You can shop online HERE on the Baby Sense website. They also have lovely videos on their site that explain exactly how to use the sling so you can check that out, I will be posting more info on the Baby Sense sling soon so you can keep an eye out for that.

This list would not be a true luxury baby must haves list if I did not include the JeanKelly baby bag! This takes baby bags to a whole new stylish level! I am eyeing these with a passion and it is basically on top of my list of needs for baby because I do not have a baby bag yet and obviously I would prefer a convenient and trendy way to carry around all my baby things and still look like a sexy mama. The bags are made out of leather and have a waterproof lining on the inside. They also have loads of pockets and places to pack things. The bags sell for R1999 each and you can shop for them on the JeanKelly website HERE

Next on my list is an awesome local Baby and mom skin care range that I discovered at the Kids Emporium George preggy evening the other day, and boy am I glad I found these products. Eli & you Is a local brand that makes skin care products from natural ingredients and is cruelty free. I have the baby barrier cream I will be trying out so ill tell you more about that later but you can check out the full range of products and shop for them HERE on the Eli & You website. They have Baby barrier balm, baby body wash, baby body and bath oil, cradle cap oil and even a natural sun screen. The packaging is beautiful and adds to the natural feel of the products.
