Welcome to the Nature Baby Journal, a thoughtfully curated world of information for parents and parents to be. Inspiration, products and ideas that will nurture you, your baby and the environment.
Because babies spend so much of their new life sleeping, it's important to ensure a healthy beginning with sleepwear free from synthetics and chemical residues. Natural fibres are soft and comfortable and allow for breath-ability and temperature regulation, which all make for a better nights rest. It is also important to figure out just what you will need.
We want to make this exciting and challenging time as easy as possible so we have put together a sleepwear checklist to help create peaceful sleeps for the whole family in the first few weeks and months.
3-6 sleeping gowns or stretch and grows - both keep baby snug and have easy opening options for nappy changes.
1 cuddly toy - attach the toy to you so your scent is absorbed into the fabric and this lovely soft organic friend will be the ultimate comfort for your baby in those early months. It can even aid sleep!
2-3 blankets - cotton or wool, this item can become a comforting treasure for years to come.
4 muslin wraps - perfect for swaddling and as a multipurpose item for creating shade for the pram, to cover while breast feeding or as a burp cloth for little spills.
1-2 sleeping bags - no more wriggling out of blankets ensuring a better night's sleep for the whole family.
1 moses basket or bassinet - a simple natural first bed which is easily transportable.
1 mattress - organic wool is the perfect fibre for babies, absorbing moisture and regulating body temperature, while keeping baby warm and dry without overheating.
2-3 bassinet sheet sets - a few sets will have you covered.
6 wraps - 4 cotton 2 wool - perfect for swaddling, your baby will be wrapped in any weather. These are great as extra blankets or a snugly.
We hope this list is super helpful!

A clothing checklist that will keep your baby covered for the first few weeks and months.
We have put together a realistic list of what you will need for the first few weeks/months for baby’s gentle daily care.
It can be an exciting (and sometimes daunting) task to set up your little one's sleeping environment, whether this be in your room or in their own nursery. We often get parents-to-be asking us what to sleep baby on, and how you set up their first bed, so we have put together a wee guide.
