    Default what do you want from a baby shop????

    Hi there,

    Well - after working in the baby industry for a few years and having kids of my own, I've taken the step to start my own 'baby'shop'...the perfect baby shop that caters to everybodies needs! As a research tool, I was wondering, as consumers, what you would like to see in a baby shop? Apart from the products (prams, car seats, cots etc, ) what would you say is currently missing from these stores? Are there any products that are hard to find? Is there anything you think needs to be in baby shop such as changeroom facilities, play area etc. Any kind of information would be helpful. I don't want to be the same as the competitors out there - I want to offer mums and dads a point of difference - a one-stop-baby-shop.

    Looking forward to your replies!!

    thx

    A selection of MCN and more books. Maybe I am just being oblivious and walking past the section, but I never seem to find MCNs in baby stores...

    Slings (not those baby bjorn ones - they're awful for babies spine health), and modern cloth nappies, and a more wide selection of birthing and parenting books (ie not just Robyn Barker and Kaz Cooke, who are just aimed at the 'mainstream'. Those that cater to more non-mainstream parents too).

    Pretty much the same as Tam. Also, I would like a good selection of nappy bags, there are a heap of new brands and styles out there that look just like a regular bag but they’re hard to find in shops.

    Exactly what i was going to say!! More natural and organic baby products (lotions and potions etc), perhaps a mums section, maternity and health..oh and from memories of being pregnant maybe a snack bar
