New Baby Essentials

Baby Essential Checklist

Thanks to Fay McCulloch from Oxfordshire who prepared the following checklist for Labels4Kids with the help of her friends. Fay used this list for the birth of baby Archie and found it invaluable.  We have all done our own new baby checklists at times to prepare for hospital but particularly for first time mums we felt we just had to share this with you all as a very well done document so you can just copy and paste into a word document and you've got it done!
Well done girls and thank you for letting us share the checklist with all new mums to be.
