    Not that it's a must have but a feeding pillow was my favourite thing in those early weeks. Breast feeding or bottle, it just gives you a hand free and saves your neck and shoulders.

    Of course you can use regular pillows but feeding pillows are useful for play later on

    They thought my bub was going to be on the bigger side thought my entire pregnancy, so smallest cleaning bought was 0000. He came out at not even 3kgs and I didn't have any clothes that fit her (at home or at te hospital) I really needed 00000! She is still small, he is 6months old in a few days and still in 000.

    Sorry for butting into your thread, but it seems a few women use swaddle wraps like miracle wraps or woombies.. Didn't even think of using it on a newborn! Does it work better than using a muslin wrap?

    Both my babies have been pretty big. Dd was born on her due date and was 8p8oz and 57cm long and ds was born at 38 weeks 7p8oz and 56 cm long that's why I'm not buying lots of little clothes. I figure if bub is small I can send someone off to the shop to get some smaller things.

    Thanks to everyone for your suggestions, keep them coming

    I read that giving a baby a dummy in the first 6 to 8 weeks can confuse them as they use difference muscles than sucking on a nipple, which can them cause attachment problems. Of course I'm completely naive and pregnant with my first, so I have absolutely no experience to base this on st all!
