Babycare Product Range by “Morisons Baby dreams” -Review

Babies occupy our hearts, thoughts and also the whole house. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration if I said that all across my house there is at least one thing more that was not there Pre-baby. Childbirth comes with a plethora of things, they grow up fast and every stage has unique requirements.  From breastfeeding, baby care products to feeding dishes; as parents we want to provide the best to our babies.
I came across Morisons Baby Dreams which is a baby care brand from the house of J L Morison, serving moms-to-be and new moms for over 30 years now.
JL Morison launched “Morisons Baby Dreams” which is their online shop designed keeping in mind the needs of today’s mom.
Morisons Baby Dreams has a wide range of products that includes feeding, hygiene, sippers, teethers, toys, apparel, bedding, baby gears and many other baby related products that you can think of. Every single product conforms to highest quality standards. Apart from their own website, their products are available on amazon and Firstcry too.
I had an opportunity to try some of their products and I am pleased with the quality and pricing.

What’s in my diaper bag??

My first introduction to The Diaper Bag, “new mom’s most useful companion when out” happened when I was 39 weeks pregnant preparing to pop. That’s when I ordered a “Pink” coloured diaper bag (please don’t ask me why), it was a disappointment and I barely used it.

Back then my only criteria was a pretty looking, spacious bag with many pockets and separators.

However, the bag that I use now is a back pack that we recieved with our duty-free perfume shopping. It is a lovely silver/grey coloured bag, with one pocket inside and one on the outside.

I have a thin body frame with narrow shoulders, carrying handbags is never too comfortable for me. Also with a baby I prefer my hands to be as free as possible. So,  babywearing and a backpack make going out super smooth for me.

Below is the list of items that you will always find in my diaper bag.

Preparing for the “D- Delivery” Day- My Hospital Bag

The good news is that your baby is coming soon; and the sad news is that you are going to miss the baby bump forever… oops not if you get pregnant again; but just like no two babies are same, each pregnancy is different. My pregnancy has been a really beautiful phase of my life, and as the due date was nearing the anxiety was at its peak. How will I know if it (labour) has started; how does water breaking feel, will I be able to endure the pain and so many more questions kept lingering all through. Well whatever happens the best thing is to be prepared for all odds, just as they say “ hope for the best and prepare for the worst”.
One of the things towards the end of your pregnant journey is preparing your bag for the hospital (just in case you don’t plan a home birth). Most of the doctors/hospitals will provide you with a list, mine did not and hence I thought I should write about it to help other new to-be mommies.
In the list below have included and excluded things that I didn’t take or took but didn’t need.

For the Mom during labour and postpartum

1.    Tooth brush
2.    Shampoo/body wash (if the hospital doesn’t provide these)
3.    Socks
4.    Slippers
5.    Cream/lotion
6.    A good camera-phone
7.    Your phone/ipod with your playlist with calming songs/music and ear phones.
8.    A timer or you could use your smart phone for timing contractions

10.   Night gowns (preferably a nursing night gown)

    11.   Nursing bra
    12.   Nursing wrap
    13.   One or two decent nursing dresses that you may want to wear post-delivery(when there are visitors)/while going back  home

14.   Enough panties/disposable panties,If the hospital doesn’t provide.(you may need more than you think, because in case of a vaginal birth there is copious blood flow, so chances of staining are high)
15. Mobile charger
16. Some candies to keep in mouth and avoid it from drying (As in labour women are mostly asked not to drink or eat anything)
17.  lip balm
18.  A message/card ready to be sent out once the baby is born

2.       Swaddling sheet
