What are some ‘must-haves’ in your baby kit?
What better way to celebrate the birth of a newborn than with a specially-made baby kit? These kits contain all the essentials your sister, best friend or colleague would need post-delivery. These will include skincare products, clothes, and recommended products for your baby’s wellbeing. These baby kits make excellent gift options, so if you know someone who is expecting or has recently given birth, you know exactly what to get them.
There are several branded baby gift kits in the market - you could say the market is flooded with hundreds of products. Because of the sheer number of choices, you could have a hard time choosing what is best. In most instances, you might have a fair idea of what you would want to gift for a newborn baby and their mother, but just in case you’re unsure, here are a few must-haves in your baby kit so you know you’re ticking off all the boxes.
- Natural and safe skincare products
Skincare isn’t just for us. Maintaining and taking care of a baby’s sensitive skin right from the start not only helps protect it but also instils a healthy practice that the baby will learn as they grow. Get derma-tested baby skincare products that moisturise and soothe their skin. Products such as baby wipes, anti-rash creams, baby soaps, massage oils, baby powders, and soothing sweet-smelling lotions nourished with essential vitamins are some must-haves you can consider.
- The right hair care products
Think of the first time you saw a baby and the hair on their head. You must surely remember how soft it felt to caress it. You would love to see it remain that way as they grow. To make sure that happens, pick the right hair care products for your baby gift kit. Baby shampoos are gentle on babies’ scalp and hair, so choose those that are natural and free of harsh chemicals. Some kits also come with wide-toothed combs which look cute and are very purposeful.
- Soft baby clothes and blankets
Ultimately, the baby’s comfort is of utmost priority. Pick baby kits that include soft, breathable fabric for baby clothes and covers. Many such baby kits also come with small cotton rompers which are adorable and comfortable. Velvet and fleece blankets are also great choices because of their soft feel. The fabric matters a lot because you do not want these babies to suffer from rashes or burning sensations. Choose pieces of fabric that can have multiple purposes, that is, they can be used as blankets, bed covers, swaddles, and towels. Berrytree has a wide range of baby clothes perfect for gifting in your baby kit.
This is a basic necessity for newborn babies and will be a huge help to give to new parents. Most new parents end up spending a lot of money simply purchasing disposable diapers. Getting them a baby kit that has essential supplies such as cloth diapers or hypoallergenic ones - plenty of which can be found in markets today - are great gift options. Without having to worry about a few days’ or weeks’ worth of essentials, they can focus all their attention on the baby.
What to keep in mind:
Make sure you are using products that are dermatologically tested and deemed safe for newborn babies. The material of the clothes must be such that they provide comfort and warmth and don’t cause any unpleasant feelings in your baby. That means, ideally organic soft cotton is your best bet. Get baby kits that will be useful even as your baby grows so you’ll be doing both your baby and your pocket a favor.
Now that you know what to look for in these baby kits, you could go ahead and make it more special by customizing these kits for your friend who’s a new parent.
