Our guide to preparing for a new arrival

Bringing a new life into the World should be a special time but getting ready for your new bundle of joy can be very expensive and financial worries need not be your focus at this time.

 

Luckily for you, DivideBuy has curated a fantastic range of retailers that allow you to spread the cost of your purchases, meaning you can concentrate only on your new arrival.

 

With the help of our retailers, we have put together a guide on what you might ahead of the big day!

 

Nursery Furniture

Well, the baby is going to need somewhere to sleep, so a cot is high on the list. You also need to consider that baby will not move over to the nursery straight away. The current guidelines are that babies should sleep with the parents for about six months before moving into their own room and into the cot. Baby will l also need somewhere to sleep in other rooms. You may opt for a crib or moses basket, travel cot if you are often on the move or a co-sleeping option like a “Next to Me” crib.

 

Our retailers also have a great range of nursery sets, which include wardrobes, sets of drawers and changing tables.

 

Travel System

A travel system is what you will use to get baby from A to B, at this stage, they only move when you move them!

 

Travel systems include prams, bassinets and car seats and they all fit together in wonderful ways.  You may spend the first few weeks wrestling to fold up the pram to get it on the car!

 

There are many things to consider, most car seats are now ISOFIX, which is an anchor system that comes pre-fitted in most modern cars.  They can also be used with seatbelts if other family members will be helping out. You can also go with infant car seats that you will need to replace after 12 months or go with systems that will be ok from birth to 4 years.

 

Security

With the newfound responsibility of parenthood comes a tendency to worry, a lot!

 

Peace of mind is priceless, and our retailers have a great range of video, audio and breathing monitors. Which option you choose is up to you, but you can find a plethora of information on our partner’s websites. Babysecurity.co.uk, for example, has a great blog offering product reviews and advice for parents.

 

The list goes on…

You will find that the list of things you need will grow and grow. From changing bags to bouncers, carriers to highchairs. Our retailers will be there to assist you every step of the way.
