9 items to offer to your friend who had a baby recently 😉 More seriously, these are items that deserve to be put into the spotlights and are a good investment. The tenth is up to you: tell me!
- Portage scarf
This piece of cloth a bit special is really practical. No need to put many layers of clothing on baby, he is warm in the winter, and when for example he has fever, you can help baby to come back to normal by carrying him/her on your skin. In public transportation, no need to hurt stupid people who use the wheelchair and pushchair area, and you can use stairs and escalators…

- The Sac’n Seat
When your baby can sit but you find no special chair in the restaurant / room / … where you are, it is not fun to leave him/her in the pushchair or carried on you. The Sack’n Seat is a wonderfull idea that transforms a chair in a baby seat, and still is contained in a 12 x 12.5 cm satchel…
In most baby centers and shops
- The easy to carry booster seat
Matt is too small, but we still use only Mobility cars. But a booster seat is big, heavy, … Here is the booster seat – bag, not very heavy (1.8 kg) and not too bulky.
- The cododo cradle
The WHO recommands to keep baby in your room until 6 month old, and if the mum breastfeeds on demand, it is far easier to have baby close by. Except that in the parents’ bed, it is not practical or safe. The cododo cradle gets hooked to the parents’ bed, and you only have to turn baby a bit lightly to feed, no one having to give up space for that. Feeling safe, baby accepts quickly to have his/her own room after that, and sleeps through the night.
The model we choose
- For the washing… 1
The color stop sheets, reusable and in fabric… Total has now one of those color-stop solutions in coton and reusable…
- For the washing… 2
Baby skin does not like strong laudry soap, and softeners even less. What to do, especially if water is hard in your area? I use the WWF (refilable bottles) soap for it, or washing nuts if the clothes are not very dirty (but with a baby…) and white vinegar M-Budget (a bit more vingar that the quantity of softener you would use… It is C’est moins cher (no, really, it is cheaper than “special baby” soap) less damaging for the environnement, and less agressive for baby (and your clothing!)
- The Swiss teething ring
Looks like a gadget, a bit more expensive than others, but this things has together the advantages of several rings (and of mum-dad’s fingers). A shape with big and small bits, a rigid frame with soft covering and some kind of hard small marbles, a fake teethbrush, some things to make noise… it is a genius invention.

- Amber necklace without danger
Everyone his opinion on this topic, but with our kid, it helps. Except he moves a lot. He gets caught easily. He wants to open it. So a classical necklace would have been a danger. Except that at our chemists, we found one closing with magnets. So the worse that can happen… is to loose it!
- The baby mush jars machine
If you tried on of those jars found in supermarkets, you tend to pull a face. But preparing those yourself is tedious. Except with one of those babycookers. Peal-clean-seed, cut in big chunks, put it the tray, water under, the cookers cooks for you. Transvase in the mixing bowl, turn into mush. I also invested in a few “Quattro Stagione” pots you find in supermarkets, and we could prepare meals for several days at a time very easily.
