Disposing of nappies in bags (only useful when you are out, and want to change diaper. At home, get a proper diaper bin.)

Baby Monitor
We bought this one (without camera):
Angelcare AC401 Movement & Sound Monitor
Later on (when she in her own room and we would want to know whether it is worth going in) we sort of missed the camera, but it is not necessary. But in case you want the camera, this seems to be a good device that friends had recommended:
Motorola MBP36S Digital Video Monitor

Ecologically friendly nappies
Nature Babycare Newborn Size 1 (4-11 lbs/2-5 kg) Nappies – 4 x Packs of 26 (104 Nappies)

Babybjorn bouncer (We borrowed this from friends and she loved it! But check with your perdiatrician about how long she can stay in it at any one stretch)
BabyBjorn Bouncer Balance Soft (Khaki/ Beige)

Bouncer Toy (if you buy the bouncer)
BabyBjörn Wooden Toy for Babysitter

Option 1 for Chair
(This is what we bought and she has been at table with us ever since she was born. If you intend to bring her at table only later on in life, this is still a very good buy, but there are other options like the famous Stokke TRIP TRAPP – see below)
Chicco Polly Magic Newborn Highchair (Cocoa)

Option 2 for Chair – the famous Stokke TRIP TRAPP
(Caution: you will have to buy all the accessories separately, whereas the Chicco one is all-inclusive)

Toiletry Essentials hamper (buy this — essential for both mum and baby)
Green People Organic Babies Organic Newborn Hamper

Sterliser (Combi so you can use in microwave or with tablets. Needed in the first few months when everything must be sterilised. Option is to boil things, but not a good idea if water in your area is very hard = loads of calc e.g. if you live in Brussels)
Milton Combi Microwave and Cold Water Steriliser (White)

Breastmilk solutions

The bottles we chose (they’re expensive but best at mimicking the natural flow of milk, so the baby doesn’t become lazy. We bought 3, but if breastfeeding you could probably do with 1-2 for pumped milk. We are told that if you are not going to breastfeed, you need 8-10)
Medela Calma with 150 ml Bottle

Pump (we were told to get an electric one, and that this one is the best and most comfortable. Note that it comes with 1 Calma bottle like the above, so take this into account)
