new baby checklist

Deciding what you need to buy for baby when pregnant can be a daunting experience.  We've tried to make this a little easier for you with our new baby checklist - what you'll need for the first few months.  If you're saving or budgeting out your costs, don't forget to put money aside for what they'll need a few months down the track - highchairs, feeding products, toys, clothes etc.  And don't forget to have a read of our advice to get information and checklists on what to look for when buying specific products.
