It’s funny just how different all babies are. When I look back at Lottie’s newborn essentials, they’re pretty different to this time around. The two that are most definitely still on the list, though, are the Fisher Price Playmat, which Frankie doubles up as a playground and a bed; and the Dr Browns bottles. I used other bottles to start with this time around, but quickly went straight back to buy more Dr Browns – nothing beats them.
I also thought that Lottie was no longer a newborn at six weeks. This time I stretched that period to three months. I’m in denial.
