For mums by mums, helping to navigate what to buy for pregnancy to baby’s first year and beyond.

As mums ourselves, Samantha Brett and I found navigating the myriad of baby stores as expectant and new mums – a tricky, daunting, expensive experience.

What do I need to buy?

What books should I read?

Where will the baby sleep?

What pram suits me best?

How will I ever sleep again!?

We spent the past few years researching baby products, canvassing thousands of mothers for their best baby buys and testing everything on our own beloved bubs and now we’ve brought our knowledge to you in this ultimate independent baby buying guide.

Buying for Baby isn’t your typical mum-buying directory. It provides an honest account about what you need from pregnancy to your baby’s first year as well as our own personal insights to help you along the way. We tackle everything from surviving the hospital to sleeping and feeding, playing and learning.

This book will not only save you thousands of dollars in wasted products that mum and bub will never really use, but will make your first year all the more seamless and stress-free.

It also features the top baby product choices from the likes of Megan Gale, Zoe Marshall, Camilla Franks and more.

This is your complete first year guide … don’t go to the baby store without it!

The book can be purchased as an eBook or Print book via
