Getting your baby's sleeping space ready is one of the best parts of preparing for their arrival. You can have lots of fun choosing soft toys and decorations, but if you're not sure what essentials to buy, we’ve put together the only list you'll need. You can also download it and print it out, ready to tick off items as you get them.

For sleeping

For changing




  • Babygrows/sleep suits – your newborn will probably spend most of her early weeks in them!
  • Tops – an extra layer when it’s cold or perfect for warm weather
  • Bottoms – for girls and boys
  • Socks – keep little feet toasty
  • Warm hat – choose one without a turn-up so it doesn’t flop over your baby’s nose and mouth
  • Sun hat – choose one with a wide brim to protect the face
  • Scratch mittens – prevent your baby scratching her skin
