M&S Baby Newborn Essentials Haul

There are so many essential items to buy for a new baby, things like.. nappies, wipes, muslin squares, all the nursery decorincluding cot mattresses, new curtains, bedding.. the list quite literally goes on and on! 

I personally find it so much fun preparing for a new arrival and I love getting to that stage in pregnancy when the shopping-fun can begin. Last week I decided I'd hit that stage and I excitedly rushed to the shops to do some of my favourite sort of shopping - baby shopping! One of my favourite places to shop for new baby essentials has to be M&S. They've got some amazing things in their M&S Baby range at the moment and it's hard not to want to get everything.  Here are some of the baby things I picked up for baby #2 last week: 

I've always been a huge fan of the more neutral baby items for boys. I've always liked dressing Ethan in greys, navy blues and whites. And so ever since finding out baby #2 is going to be a boy too, I've been keeping my eyes out looking for some new things to get for him. He'll be mostly living in Ethans old clothes, but I still can't help buying a few new things, simply because I find buying and preparing for a newborn so utterly exciting!

I adore both of these onesie's above- they feature my favourite sorts of prints and the quality of both is as you would expect from somewhere like M&S - brilliant. I've got them in up to 3 months I believe, but that's because I want them to last and after Ethan was such a big baby at birth, it's put me off of buying anything in newborn/new baby size. 

How sweet is this blanket? Again I love the colours and the quality of it. I will most likely use this as a pram blanket. It's just adorable isn't it?

I couldn't resist this lovely little comforter. Sadly I can't seem to find a link to it via their website (I got it in store) sorry, but I'm sure there are others just like it. Apart from how sweet it looks, it is really, really soft, perfect for a new baby!


This little jacket is again, adorable and I love that it's reversible too - sort of like having two jackets in one! I love the colours and again how utterly soft it is. I'd actually forgotten how small and sweet new baby clothes are.

Ah - I can't wait to bath my new baby and then wrap him up in this towel afterwards. We do have small baby towels like this from when Ethan was born, but nothing as soft as this one is. 

I can't help but feel a little emotional when looking at these and picturing my baby wearing them. The cardigan will be perfect for the month that he's due to be born - June, as it will work as a lighter alternative to his jacket. The shirt bodysuit is one that I couldn't resist either - I really do love smart clothes on babies and toddlers!

I wanted to get this as I wanted something just the right size for baby to grab as he starts to grow after his first few weeks of life and I thought that this was not only super sweet but also the perfect size for tiny baby hands and fingers to grab at.

I'm so pleased with everything I got from M&S for baby #2. I also picked up their latest M&S Baby catalogue at the checkout last week and I've already seen a ton of additional things I'd like to get for him! It's so easy to buy for a new baby isn't it?! 



  1. I love M&S baby clothes - particularly the sleepsuits. There are lots of cute items for girls I want to pick up for my daughter when she goes up another clothing size (I really love getting to buy her a whole new wardrobe every three months!) Their muslins are brilliant as well - I wouldn't buy them from anywhere else.

  2. Soo adorable! I love neutral colours for baby boys too xx

  3. It's hard to buy for a girl I'm telling you. Lol
    I'm used to buying jeans, jumpers etc.
    So far she's only wearing sleepsuits up until the age of 3/4 months but after the fun starts with tights, Dresses etc. Have no fashion sense. Lol

  4. We have the same comforter for pretzel, they have such lovely stuff

  5. So cute! You picked some lovely things- I bet it's so much fun buying baby stuff again. x

  6. I have always loved M&S children's clothes and the new M&D Baby ranges look great. You have some gorgeous things ready for him :) x

  7. Awww very cute, I love the blanket! M & S is one place I never really look for baby clothes, must try it out.

    I had the opposite problem with Tyne - I bought all newborn and they didn't fit him for about 4 weeks! I had to go and buy loads of tiny/early baby things! So this time around I`m totally thrown - I've been sticking with newborn but kind of hoping I don't end up with a super tiny one again coz I do without the last minute shopping lol! xx

  8. It's always so exciting when you can start buying little baby bits, starts to feel really real. And we really like M&S for baby things too. Our favourite sleeping bags were from there, as well as some favourite cuddly toys from the baby days.
    I love all the bits you've picked out for your new little man. He's going to look adorable! x

  9. Aww beautiful clothes. Such an exciting time :)
