A super comfortable chair to nurse your baby or put him to sleep. Preferably a rocking chair, to help put your baby to sleep easy and quick!
Daraz is delivering this to your doorstep!
2. A Steriliser
A steriliser to keep in your room for those midnight feeds.
Buy the sterilizer on Daraz for only Rs. 6,790
3. Bottle Warmer
A bottle warmer to make sure you’re not walking to the kitchen in the middle of the night while your baby cries (shrieks) for milk.

5. A Carry Cot Or Bassinet
That will work for the first few months of your baby’s life. Just throw in pampers, Vaseline, a change of clothes and you’re ready to go (don’t forget the baby) you can normally fit your baby in along with his/her gadda.

6. A Cot Mobile
Preferably one with some wind up music that will keep the baby amused & make for interesting scenery (as he spends most of his hours lying on his back)
7. Bubble Baths/ Massage Oils/ Aromatherapy!
This one’s for you to relax, if your husband or parents offer to give you a break from Motherhood! A bath, with the right soap/shower gel, can also go a long way!
Or watch a movie or web series to catch up on when you pace up & down in your room putting the baby to sleep. (Late night)
8. Healthy Snacks & Panjeeri
Your post natal health is essential in order to be there for your baby. So stock up on that Panjeeri & add some easy snacks on the go. Yogurt, energy bars, fresh fruits, dry fruits give loads of energy.
This one you can get at any departmental store! The panjeeri can be found in any Pansaari ki dukaan!
9. A Baby Trolley to store your baby’s bath care paraphernalia.
Baby shampoo, baby bath, baby lotion, baby oil, pampers, baby wipes, Vaseline, colic meds, snacks for you. One tiny human being can turn your whole world (room) upside down. Use a trolley with wheels so all your needs are catered for … on wheels.
