New Parents Essentials Checklist by Babydash

nursery-essentials-01-1

If you’re expecting your first child, we believe you’ll be browsing the internet for checklists – what to pack in your hospital bag, which baby items should you buy, where to buy, what are the recommended brands, etc. However, there are so many lists online and trust us, you don’t wanna go through them all and fall into the trap of over-buying or under-prepared. So, we at Babydash have compiled a minimalist yet comprehensive list for your reference.

P.S.: Our Community Lead has just given birth to her second baby boy about three months ago, so she has the latest insights for these checklists. 🙂

Hospital bag checklist (when you go to the hospital!)

Mommy-and-baby bag

  • Disposable maternity pads (in case you need more than what the hospital provides)
  • Disposable panties (highly recommended!)
  • Pyjamas (2-3 sets in case you’re discharged later)
  • Bottom healing spray (we recommend Earth Mama Angel Baby) to aid your bottom’s healing after vaginal birth or cesarean section wound healing salve for C-section mamas
  • Toiletries
  • Going-home clothes (we recommend nursing dress or blouse such as Ratuwear)
  • Nursing bras (2-3 pieces)
  • Nipple cream (we recommend Earth Mama Angel Baby)
  • Newborn sleep-suits, hats, mittens, booties (3-4 sets)
  • Newborn disposable diapers (we recommend 1 pack of Goo.N on standby in case the hospital doesn’t provide sufficient amount of diapers)
  • Swaddles / receiving blankets (1-2 pieces)
  • Birth plan (as approved by ob/gyn)
  • Hospital appointment card
  • Purse (identification card, money, credit card)
  • Mobile phone & charger/power bank

Daddy’s bag

  • T-shirts, pants, underwear, pyjamas, socks
  • Towel
  • Toiletries
  • Mobile phone charger and/or power bank

Note: Please remember to install your newborn’s car seat in your car earlier before you’re due to deliver your baby.

Babydash Takes Off with Equity Crowd-funding Launch Party!

babydash-ecf-launch-party-1

Last Thursday, 16 February 2017 was a blast as we officially launched our equity crowd-funding (ECF) program! We threw a special get-together launch party at Aether Cafe, TTDI to share our excitement and happiness with our forever supportive community of parents, suppliers, fellow mumpreneurs, the pitchIN team, media representatives, and potential investors.

Who is Babydash? Let us introduce ourselves again. Babydash is an online store focuses on selling baby daily necessities. We have a wide product range of everything a baby needs from diapers and milk, bath & skincare products, baby food, toys, strollers, car seats, baby carriers and lots more. We make buying baby necessities as convenient as possible so parents can order from the comforts of their home and have the goods delivered straight to their homes/offices. Our key strength lies in the trust and loyalty that our community of customers and parents have in us. As such, we are continuously building this community and giving back by organizing free coffee and networking sessions, parenting talks, sleep consulting classes, lactation consulting talks, and lots more. Hence, we organize this launch party as we want to share our excitement with our loyal customers.

The atmosphere was upbeat as party-goers filled up the bright and cheery cafe – most of them with kids in tow. We were very excited to meet everyone, finally being able to put faces to names we always see in our ordering system.

It was a fun-filled party with scrumptious food, sweet treats, happening music, fun activities for the kids such as face painting, story telling, nail art, fishing, and a ball pit filled with colorful balls for the little ones to have fun while mommies and daddies sat back and chillaxed and had a good time enjoying the party!
