Planning for a newborn whilst already having a toddler can be a rather stressful time. How will I cope with two young children, will I love them both the same, will my toddler get jealous of the new baby? There are so many questions to be answered. If you have a new baby on the way and a toddler in tow don’t worry, you will easily adjust and your newborn will adapt to your routine.
The great thing about already having a toddler is that you most probably kept most of their baby items and clothes unless you weren’t planning on having any more kids. If so, then you are pretty set on items for baby apart from the odd few items.
Today I thought I would share a few of my favourite items that Cosatto have to offer which will see your little one through from birth to toddlerhood.
In the car
The Hootle Group 0-1 Infant Car Seat is suitable from birth and can be used up until approx 4 years of age. With the ability to rear face from birth to 13kg and forward facing in the Group 1 mode from 9-18kg meaning both your toddler and newborn can fit comfortably in it. This is a great buy as it’s two stages in one and there’s no need to buy an infant car seat and then the group 1 when they grow out.
Out and about
Your toddler may prefer to walk more now but if they are still young or tend to take a nap during the day you may want to invest in a nippy stroller for two. The Supa-dupa double stroller is a great option and with many different designs there’s something to suit everyone. Much narrower than most double pushchairs meaning it’s easier to manoeuvre and get in and out of shops. Also suitable from birth so you can push around your newborn and toddler side by side. The spacious storage basket is a must for your ever growing changing bag!
Not needing a double pushchair? I’d highly recommend the Cosatto Ooba or Giggle which are both fantastic travel systems. The Ooba is now available in the Kimono design which is absolutely gorgeous and also available in Duck egg and Marzipan. The Giggle is a fond favourite and equally as great as the Ooba, although kinder on the bank balance!
In the nursery
If you are looking for a new cot-bed these Story Cot Beds (available to purchase from September) will completely transform a nursery if you are looking for a stylish statement piece. From cot to cot-bed and can also be used as a sofa once your child has grown out of it, meaning you won’t need to buy a toddler bed saving you money in the long run!
Finding the right highchair for your little one is essential. The 3sixti2 is a great option if you are currently looking for a highchair for your toddler which your newborn can then use when your toddler grows out of it. I love the rotating feature as well as the multiple height positions with the gas lift which allows you to have your hands free to attend to your newborn whilst feeding your toddler too.
So there you have my favourite picks suitable for baby and toddler from Cosatto’s current range. Thanks for reading.
