Best Buys for New mums 2020

Published on 14th July 2020 by Suzanna Mazzone

Club Hub has put together a quite extensive but we hope helpful list of best buys for new mums. Each product has been reviewed by a mum and therefore we can confidently recommend every product listed here. 

This year has been a strange year indeed. Due to COVID-19 many expectant and new mums have had a very different experience during their pregnancy and first stages of caring for their little bundle. Many pregnant mums during Lockdown have not been able to have partners or their other children attending antenatal classes, scans, baby showers. They have had to be done virtually (if at all), time with loved ones and friends has been limited. However, regardless of all this having a baby is such a joyous time. Club Hub wanted to let new mums know that we think you are AMAZING. We wanted to celebrate your little baby by compiling a list of Best buys for new mums! We have searched high and low to find the perfect best buys for new mums.

Our  fantastic brand reps who are all mums themselves have tested out all of these amazing items. We can confidently talk about just how amazing these products are! So if you are pregnant searching for what you should buy for your little one. Or have a baby and would like to know what would be useful, or even would like to buy the perfect gift for a new mum this article is for you!

‘Best buys for new mums’ – Feeding

However you chose to feed your baby there is no doubt you will be researching endlessly for the best bottles, pumps,  sterilisers etc. We have found some really fantastic top of the range products from some fabulous companies.

However, a few of the products below such as the breastfeeding friendly tops and breast pads we have reviewed are eco friendly smaller businesses. In our best buys for new mums article we felt it was also really important to be able to support those smaller businesses too!

Medela swing Breast pump

Best buys for new mums

The “Medela Electric Breast Pump Swing Flex” is absolutely fantastic.

It has a fabulous 2-phase expression Technology which actually imitates the natural sucking rhythm of your baby! It is ideal for quick, efficient expression whenever you need it. The Medela Electric Breast Pump is fantastic for breastfeeding mums who want to share feeding with a partner, get out for an appointment, or simply take a break. Every mum is so different. Your breast shape is unique and can change throughout your breastfeeding journey.

With Medela’s new PersonalFit Flex™ breast shield, you can easily adapt the way your Medela breast pump fits to help you find the most comfortable, effective, position to express. When your baby latches on, the baby will suck quickly at first to start the milk flow, then more slowly to feed. Medela 2-Phase Expression® technology mimics these instinctive rhythms for a more natural-feeling and comfortable pumping experience. Medela Swing has a very simple design and is extremely portable. It’s easy to assemble and take apart for cleaning so all parts can be sanitised quickly.

In the run up to Fathers Day Medela also ran a survey of 1,000 mums which revealed a landslide appreciation of the support they have received from their partners when breastfeeding

A huge 93% of participants felt supported by their partner. 91% of mums being confident this support was invaluable during their breastfeeding journey. Partners are helping with key elements including night feeds, providing drinks and snacks and supporting with positioning.

The survey highlights the importance of emotional support and encouragement, which clearly has a positive impact on mums overall mental wellbeing. Many participants highlighted how their partner helped them build confidence with breastfeeding, and emotionally supported them through the more challenging times.

What Our Brand Rep Reviewer thought 

“I really enjoyed using and reviewing The Medela Swing Flex! I found it alot easier to put together and use than other breast pumps I have used before. There isn’t loads of parts which makes it easy to set up and easy to clean. I like the fact that the Swing Flex comes with two sizes of breast shields, which means that it adapts to the size of the user.

Personally, I used the 21mm and found this fit great. I loved the fact that there was the option to use a battery and make the pump portable, this means you can take it with you and not have to worry about not having an electric supply! I found the Medela Swing Flex really effective and easy to use. It was comfortable and not painful at all. The Medela Swing flex may be a little pricier than some other models, however from my experience I would totally say this is worth the money.”

Philips steriliser & natural starter bottle set

Philips Avent – Newborn Natural starter set

Easy to combine with breastfeeding, Philips Natural bottle with an ultra-soft teat more closely resembles the breast. The wide breast-shaped teat with flexible spiral design and comfort petals allows natural latch-on and makes it easy to combine breast and bottle feeding.

What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought

“This newborn starter set is great, it contains all of the bottles/teats you need. They are perfect to combine with breastfeeding as the teats are shaped like a nipple so I found that my baby didn’t reject the bottle or my nipple after feeding which was amazing as this was something I was worried about when expressing. It is fabulous that there are two sizes of bottles, the smaller ones are fantastic for when your baby is smaller and larger when your baby needs more milk. The anti colic valve has been fantastic for my colicky baby, I found other brands were not as effective as these and he seemed a lot happier after a feed from these bottles.”

Best buys for new mums – Teething

Believe it or not, those tiny little teeth sprouting through in your baby’s gums may not take long at all to start causing you and your baby lots of problems!

We have found a few really practical products below to hopefully help you and your baby overcome this tricky but inevitable milestone. 

Sophie La Giraffe teething toy

Of course we had to include in our ‘best buys for new mums’ this loveable giraffe! Sophie La Giraffe is a fabulous teething toy that can be given to babies from birth! She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree. Sophie La Girafe stimulates the 5 senses! 

  • Sight – At the age of 3 months, a baby’s eyesight is still limited and he can only make out high contrasts. The dark and contrasting attention-catching spots all over Sophie la girafe’s body provide visual stimulation and she soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object for baby. 
  • Smell – The singular scent of natural rubber from the Hevea tree makes Sophie la girafe very special and easy for your child to identify amid all his other toys.
  • Sound – Sophie la girafe’s squeaker keeps baby amused and stimulates his hearing. To begin with, the funny sound she makes when she is squeezed helps to stimulate his hearing, and then later, helps him to understand the link between cause and effect.
  • Taste – Made of 100% natural rubber and food-grade paints, she is completely safe to chew. Sophie la girafe is akin to the nipple of a feeding-bottle. Her soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, legs), makes her perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums during teething. 
  • Touch – Touch is the first means a baby has to communicate with the outside world. Sophie la girafe’s soft feel, like baby’s mother’s skin, stimulates physiological and emotional responses that soothe baby and promote healthy growth and well-being. 
What our Brand Rep Reviewers thought

“Bea is most definitely teething, constantly dribbling and putting her hands in her mouth. We were recently gifted this Sophie La Girafe  and she absolutely loves it! She loves the squeak and it’s perfect for her little hands to hold” mum to 6 month old girl

“Although my son is still only a small baby he absolutely loves Sophie La Girafe, you can see him really interacting with Sophie, which I find amazing. He grabs at the giraffe and has even had a good giggle at her, he likes to suck on her nose/mouth and seems to really enjoy the cool feel in his mouth! I think he will be getting the use out of Sophie for a long while and I would totally recommend this teether to any new mum. I have put Sophie in the cot with him since he was a few days old!” mum to a newborn

Double Dribble – The Ultimate Neckerchief Bib – Bibado

Best buys for new mums

The Double Dribble bib gives you two extra towelling layers, hidden away beneath a first layer featuring a funky and unisex designs. The neckerchief or bandana bib is bang on trend right now. And dribbling certainly never goes out of fashion. The Double Dribble bib was designed because my niece – a serious drooler – was constantly red and sore around her mouth and under her chin from the constant dampness and wiping.

I wanted to create a dribble bib which would keep her dry all day, reduce skin irritation and just maker her more comfortable, happier and less prone to grizzling. And that’s exactly what we’ve been able to achieve! Its hard work being a parent. Anything that saves you time, money and hassle and which helps you keep your little one happy is invaluable.

This neckerchief bib does all of that, by protecting and keeping clothes dry, by reducing the risk of rashes, and by cutting the number of bibs you need to wash and carry. And if it’s timesaving for one baby, imagine how much easier it makes life when you have more than one child, or twins or triplets trying to out-dribble each other!

It’s even sustainably produced, a little peace of mind for the eco-conscious parent. The fabric is made from bamboo, a renewable, sustainable, fast-growing plant whose fibres create incredibly soft textiles. It’s even naturally hypo-allergenic, so you’re less likely to encounter skin reactions.

Dribble Bib features

  • 2 hidden wiping layers
  • Super-absorbent, baby-safe bamboo fabric
  • Reversible design and function
  • Fastens easily with poppers
  • Adjustable, to suit babies from birth to 2 years
  • Bamboo fabric is hypo-allergenic, eco-friendly and has naturally antibacterial properties
  • Safety tested to the highest international standards.
What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought

“I’ve got sick of using dribble bibs as they’re usually soggy and soaked through by lunchtime, but this one from Bibado was great and still dry at the end of the day.

Despite having 2 layers it didn’t feel too thick or chunky (which is a good job with recent weather), yet that extra layer really does stop the continuous (and it really is continuous at the moment!) baby dribble from soaking through. No damp or sore skin for Olivia at the end of the day. Mum win!

Best Buys For New Mums – Nappies & Wipes

Reusable nappies/cloth nappies have evolved greatly in the past few decades. Cloth nappies these days often look and function just like disposables but without the waste and money and can be just as easy to put on, Terry nappies are of course still used but there are some great alternatives if you don’t fancy learning different folds and you still would like the convenience of an all-in-one disposable nappy.

During this pandemic there has been a significant increase in people purchasing cloth nappies. Maybe with panic buying and disposable nappies very hard to find this is why a lot of mums turned to cloth. Maybe it’s because people had more time at home, or wanted to save a bit of extra money. There are so many benefits of using cloth nappies.

We understand this won’t be for everyone, however we wanted to explore lots of different types of cloth nappies in our best buys for new mums article as we wanted to show you just what is out there for you if you wanted to venture into the world of reusable nappies and wipes. Reusable nappies cost less in the long run and are especially good if you’re conscious of the environmental impact of disposable nappies. Did you know that by using disposable nappies, you will send around 900 nappies to the landfill in just 2 years! 

Close Parent

Close Pop In NB (nappies)

Pop-in newborn nappy pack is an affordable way to bridge the gap between tiny baby and birth to potty, the nappy is designed specifically for those high frequency changes over the first few months and shaped to fit better from birth.

Many parents wanting to use cloth straight from birth end up using disposables or eco disposables when the baby is small or prem, as birth to potty sizing tends to start from 7 lbs or 8 lbs and is often too bulky. This can prove particularly expensive on top of your cloth investment, as you can expect to change your newborn up to 10 times a day in those early days and weeks!

These reusable newborn nappies help bridge this gap in an affordable way thanks to their clever design. The front section is contoured to fit around the baby’s umbilical cord and the nappy itself is much slimmer, intended for the lower wetting, high frequency changing those first few months bring. The waterproof outer shell isn’t lined so you can simply switch out the inner and wipe clean and reuse cover if it’s not soiled.

Small but perfectly formed, the newborn nappy is still 100% Pop-in with all the same trust and reliability you would expect including our renowned leak-proof double leg gusset to cope with explosive newborn poops! The soaker is slim but absorbent, made using 5 layers of super soft bamboo terry, there is also a top layer of fast wicking polyester to keep baby’s skin drier in use making them perfect for your little one’s delicate skin.

This fabulous newborn nappy pack contains everything you need to get started, in the pack you will get 6 unisex waterproof outershells and 10 bamboo soakers.

What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought

“Close pop in newborn reusable nappies starter set are so easy to use and meant that I could use cloth right from the get go! This was really important to me as I didn’t want to be putting harmful chemicals on my baby or adding to the huge landfill!

These nappies are super absorbent, go under the umbilical cord and are Ideal for babies 5-12lbs great if you want to put baby straight in cloth nappies from newborn and a, really cost efficient way without having to use Terry towels. As a mum who has never used cloth before they were really easy to get my head around and I would totally recommend these to new mums if you would like to give cloth ago! I feel they are also very cost efficient”

Close Pop-In BTP (Reusable nappies)

The Close Parent Pop-In nappy is a unique hybrid nappy system; a cross between an all-in-one nappy and a two-part system. The inner soaker poppers inside the outer shell so that it comes apart for easy washing and drying and cleverly goes back together again ready to simply fasten around your baby.

This is a birth-to-potty nappy which is altered by the 3×2 sets of poppers carefully positioned on the front of the nappy.  The nappy is secured using velcro tabs or poppers.  You must consider that some babies when they are older learn to undo velcro so this can be an issue in the future.  We do find the Pop-In have short nappy tabs so if baby is chubby the nappy can be outgrown early even by slim babies.

The inner soaker is made from soft bamboo.  We also sell the Pop in nappies in boxsets and these come with the option of microfibre if you prefer a quicker drying nappy.   The inner soaker can be tumble dried on low only the outer shell cannot. 

Close Parent Pop In nappies have a double elasticated leg gusset to help improve containment however this doesn’t mean it’s a two part system and so the containment remains on a par with other all in one nappies.

What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought

 “Fantastic purchase for any new mum! Containment is totally fantastic! The Pop-In nappy is a cross between an all-in-one nappy and a two-part system. The inner soaker poppers inside the outer shell so that it comes apart for easy washing and drying. I was shocked just how quickly the nappy dried. I love how the Close Parent Pop In nappies have a double elastic gusset to help improve containment. It was fabulous and literally lasted all night with my 2 year old, something even disposables sometimes struggled to do.”

Tots Bots Easyfit STAR

This all in one reusable cloth nappy is fantastic. It has a lovely soft layer waterproof material around the outside of the nappy, the super absorbent inner is made of lovely soft bamboo and another layer of microfibre.  The Easyfit Star makes the inside super soft and absorbent.  The inside is easy to pull out to speed up drying time after washing.

What our brand rep reviewer thought?

“Absolutely love these reusable nappies by TotsBots. The Easyfit was totally like putting on a disposable nappy, no boosters just simply adjust to size via poppers and Velcro on tabs. The nappy fit beautifully and looked so lovely. The inside was super soft with a bamboo built in thick booster and was super absorbent. This took a little longer to dry, however it was dry hanging on an airier overnight and would be even quicker on a washing line. Would recommend this as a, perfect daytime nappy. The PeeNut wrap has got the cutest design and thanks to the adjustable poppers is suitable from birth to potty  which means my 2 year old toddler and newborn can both use it!

The boosters can be used together to hold more or just one at a time!  We love the bright colours and my 2 year old was so excited to wear it! The absorbency is fantastic and the drying time was super speedy. For a mum who never had used cloth nappies before I was amazed how easy this was to get to grips with. You can buy these boosters separately and just pop in and out and wipe the wrap which makes it really efficient . At nighttime we tried out the Bamboozle nappy with the peanut wrap on top!

This nappy is so so soft and just feels amazing and snug, my little one was dry all night and it was so easy to use. I love this. Totally recommend “

“the Miosolo nappies were great to try. The prints are really sweet and I love how super easy they were to get to grips with. My partner, who like me, previously had only ever had experience with disposable nappies even felt confident to give them a go and had no trouble with them at all! I found them to be so absorbant, excellent containment and paired with the disposable liners my little ones bum stayed clean and dry 

The nappies washed superbly with the laundry cleaner and I would definitely continue to use this powder to wash all of my reusable nappies and wipes, they came out smelling totally fresh and I also loved that the inserts hand out so, easily so that they can dry quickly – I had no trouble drying these nappies overnight hanging on my airer

Which smells lovely Pop your wipes into the ‘Fresh Wipes’ container shake and let it absorb then hey’re ready … Prepare your ‘Mucky Wipes’ container by filling with water to the fill level marked, then add 3 – 4 drops of the ‘Mucky Wipes’ essential oil then you can, put dirty wipes in to keep them fresh

More than a regular baby wipe, containing over 99.6% Purified Water and organic Aloe Vera, Aqua Wipes® are a perfect natural alternative to protect against nasties.  Pure water wipes for babies.

What our Brand Rep Reviewer thought

We all know we should do a bit more for the environment and we use wipes constantly in our house so it was great to be introduced to Aqua Wipes.

They are plastic free, biodegradable (within 15 days!) and packed full of moisture, meaning that we actually used less than we would normally because they clean so much using just one wipe.

They’ve been great for nappy changes, wiping off face paints, wiping Spag-Bol smeared mouths and muddy hands. The small handy packets are fab too; very convenient to either pop in your handbag or keep in a kitchen drawer for whenever they’re needed.

And I loved the hack to keep them in the fridge to cool down on hot days.

“OK so how are you dressing your babies at night now it’s summer? Little Lady has never liked her Gro Bag (complete opposite to her brother) so it’s been a combo of vests and summer pjs….blanket off then on, then off then on again! 

I’m constantly worried if she’s too hot or too cold so I’m grateful to @philipsavent for their Bath and Bedroom Thermometer so at least I now know the temperature of the room during these hot nights. The thermometer is also waterproof and can be used to test the temperature of the bath so it’s very handy and updates itself every 10 seconds!”

Crouch down and look at your home through your child`s eyes. What would you do if you were a child? Now protect your home accordingly

What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought

“So Little Lady is not only crawling, she’s now cruising! She completely took herself (and us!) by surprise yesterday by walking with her walker across the living room! So now is most definitely time to baby proof! The sharp furniture corners are getting covered, the plugs are getting protected and we’re locking the cupboards! I’ve also got an anti tip kit for our units in case she wants to climb up and a door slam stopper too.

I’m so grateful to @fred_safety for these absolute essentials in baby proofing that have each been rigorously tested to protect our little ones. I genuinely forgot how eager babies are once they are on the move!”

VOTED BEST BABY PRODUCT 2 YEARS RUNNING (Achieve Magazine)

What our Brand Rep Thought

“Snugglebundl is a hammock style blanket with head support and handles, it’s marketed for moving or transferring baby from the car seat without waking them, wrapping them for naps or using to cover while breast feeding! It has clear directions that this is NOT to be used as a carrier or sling. My first impression was maybe I wouldn’t actually use something like this often enough to justify buying it but I was very wrong!

It’s frequently used throughout the day and my baby loves it!! In my experience its biggest benefit was taking her out of the car seat! We do have a carrycot but don’t tend to take it out of the car! And this gives a super way of getting her out whilst keeping her covered which was especially useful when it was chucking it down with rain! She was safe, dry and snuggly without trying to cover her over inside the car.

It’s made of 100% cotton, which feels very strong and supportive! I felt reassured that my baby was safe and comfortable when I used the snugglebundl, I loved the choice of patterns available. I can see this being great for anyone who has a c section as it takes away a large amount of bending and allows to get baby up without having to use stomach muscles!

It’s very user friendly and comes with loads of clear instructions and YouTube videos showing how to use it safely! In summary it’s a great item that I will be getting as a gift for any of my friends expecting a baby! I would certainly recommend it!”

Best Buys For new mums – Weaning 

You will be surprised how quickly 6 months flies and how quickly you will need to think about giving your baby their first tastes of food. Weaning your baby on to solid food is such an exciting time!

Whether your plan is to start with purees or try baby-led weaning (or a combination of both).

Bibado – Bibado Coverall: The long sleeved baby weaning highchair bib

Best buys for new mums

Introducing the Bibado Coverall bib – a must-have for weaning babies! This was, a definite must in our best buys for new mums article.

The all-new coverall bib features extra-soft waterproof material. A clever design to ensure your baby or toddler is always comfy at mealtimes. Their clothes remain clean, dry and stain-free. Weaning your baby is a wonderful period, but it’s not without its downsides. Food down the clean clothes you’ve just got out of the drawer, food down the sides of the highchair, food down the joints and crevices of the highchair.

The Bibado really is so simple to use. Drape your weaning bib over the shoulders, arms and the part of the tray nearest the baby. Then run the Velcro straps underneath the tray to meet in the middle. When it’s time to feed your little one, simply push the bib away from the chair and towards the tray. Place your baby safely in the highchair and ease each of the baby’s arms into the sleeves. Fasten the bib around your child’s neck and ensure the sides of the bib are securely stretched over the sides of the highchair. The ‘well’ the bib creates between baby and highchair tray means much less mess – and much less food wasted!

What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought 

Wow absolutely LOVING the BIBaDO coverall bib and so is my little monkey. We had a full English breakfast this morning with beans/sauce/egg and No Mess… Wish I’d have invested in this amazing bib AGES ago it would have saved so much time cleaning and mess. The design is really lovely and you literally put it on your little one and velcro under the highchair. It keeps all the food off your little ones clothes and the high chair (and of course the floor!).

So when you take it off everything is mess free… I 100% think this would, make a perfect buy or gift for new mums for when your baby is weaning. It will literally save you Hours of weaning. I am due in 4 weeks and will be 100% investing in another one.”

BPA Free 100% LFGB food grade silicone.

What our Brand Rep Reviewer Thought 

“The mini easy mat by easy tots is fab! It folds and comes with a fork, spoon, lid and bag making it portable. You can either take food with you for when you’re on the move or buy something whilst out. Dish it into this mat and suction it to the table/high chair of the restaurant

The compartments are a good size, perfect to fit baby/toddler portions into. It comes with a curved knife & spoon to encourage your child to feed themselves and with ease as the shape of them makes it easier for them to reach their mouth. Unfortunately this mat doesn’t fit to Emilias particular high chair when using the suctions. But as I folded it, this allowed it to fit. It’ll definitely come in handy when we’re out & about! It does fit on most high chairs but best to check the dimensions before ordering!

I would recommend this mat for any child from 6 months to 2 years. That is either being weaned or is learning to feed themselves.”
