Chloe's Newborn Essentials
You may or may not know, that recently we welcomed a very exciting new addition to the Olli Ella family, and this time, it’s not a basket - it’s a baby! Olli Ella co-founder and Mama extraordinaire, Chloe, welcomed little August Bear into the world this April, growing her crew of kiddos from three to four! In light of our special new arrival, Chloe has chosen to share a few of her absolute favourite, must-have items for newborn bubs and new Mums! These are Chloe’s Newborn Essentials:
01. Susukoshi Kimono Gown
The only sleepsuit you’ll ever need! So easy for midnight nappy changes — Augie lives in these!
02. Josefina Baby Bag
Super stylish, well made, lots of compartments — it’s the perfect diaper bag/ hospital bag and also going to the office bag (I’ve used it for all three).
03. Bibs USA Natural Rubber Pacifiers
Natural and in great colours - yes please!
04. Mayde Nursing Tea
Great for booby milk!
05. Wildflower and Oak 100% Linen Blankets
Can’t have enough blankets and swaddles - love the earthy colours and soft linen.
06. Juem Intimates
Finally maternity underwear that looks nothing like the part! Love the colours and the delicate straps — undies are super comfy too.
07. Ecoriginals Baby Wipes
Beautiful wipes that are so gentle on the baby. Love that all ingredients are natural and the wipes are biodegradable.
08. Tom Organic Maternity Pads
No nasty chemicals, these were a life saver post birth.
09. Olli Ella Bayu Changing Basket
Love everything about Olli Ella changing baskets - 100% natural materials, ethically made, and they look great in the nursery or bedroom.
10. Olli Ella Luxe Organic Cotton Liner, Mustard
Take them with you and the baby as a sweet changing mat or use with one of the changing baskets — love the earthy pastel hues.
11. Olli Ella Bowery Basket
I use this to store wipes and nappies — can’t get enough rattan!
12. Liniment Bum Cleansing Cream
Love this for on the go, it’s like a baby wipe and barrier cream in one. I’ve used this with two of our babies and swear by it for preventing nappy rash.
13. WARES by Olli Ella
Feeding friendly and sooooo comfy. Perfect for the mama who craves comfort but also wants to look just a little bit pulled together.
