Small versions of nail clippers or scissors to cut babies' nails which grow extremely fast.
Dummies come with a silicone or rubber teat, and a plastic or silicone mouth shield and handle. Latex dummies are softer and more flexible than silicone, but they don't last as long. The mouth shield prevents your baby from choking on, or swallowing, the teat. Orthodontic dummies are also available. If you are breast feeding you need to be careful when you introduce a dummy as you can cause nipple confusion - it is best to wait until the baby is a month old. Ideally it is also best to wean a baby off a dummy from 6-12 months. There is research which indicates that dummies may help to reduce the risk of cot death.
Our mums say:
"I'd recommend glow-in-the-dark dummies so your baby can see them at night."
"Glow in the dark are amazing - a revelation!"
Teething Links are either hard plastic or soft with water or gel inside. They are designed for babies to chew on and ease teething pains. Some can be put into the freezer to make them hard and cold which helps teething pain a great deal too.
Our mums say:
"These are used by every mum I know. They cost very little, yet they amuse for a long time over many months!"
Safety in the home once your baby is on the move is vital. We have recommended items we feel are most important. However, what you need will depend on your home layout and what is within reach of your baby.
Whilst you cannot use any medicine until your baby is at least two months old, we suggest you stock your cabinet in advance. The chances are the first time you need medicine for your baby will be in the middle of the night when all the shops are closed! Always read the instructions before giving your baby medicine, and if in any doubt, check with your doctor or health visitor. You can find reliable advice about many individual medicines on both the NHS and Boots websites.
