How can you choose the best sleeping bag or angel nest?
So that your baby can sleep safely, a sleeping bag is the perfect option to ensure a good night's sleep. Giving a sleeping bag to a newborn baby means they're kept warm and comfortable so that they can spend nights wriggling with everything they need near them. A few things that shoudl be kept in mind when choosing a sleeping bag are the age and size of the baby but also the temperature of the room. But ultimately, you should pick whichever you prefer. At Melijoe, you will find printed or striped sleeping bags, in cotton or bamboo muslin...so there is bound to be one that you will like and that you and the baby will just adore.
As well as a sleeping bag, an angel nest is also a great option, as it allows a baby (0-3 months) to be easily moved from the car to the stroller, without disturbing him or her. Depending on the season, you can either opt for a padded version, with a hood to protect the baby's head, or simply a lighter version for when summer arrives. After having chosen the right size and your favorite print, you're set to go! And don't stop there! Once you've chosen their sleeping bag, there are plenty more gifts to make you fall in love.
Pajamas, simply a must-have
Whether it's a newborn gift for a girl or a boy, pajamas are an essential part of a baby's wardrobe, and designers have truly let their imaginations run wild! Printed, embroidered, in velvet or even in lace, pajamas with attached booties and poppers, babies can get comfy quickly, while staying stylish! Do you want to give more than simply pajamas? Our brands have thought of everything and are offering gift sets with many different combinations, includng a range of caps and bibs and some even include a soft toy to truly complete newborn gift, without needing to go out to the shops. We've got a feeling that one of our selection of pajamas will be the baby's favorite!
Blanket or swaddle, it's up to you!
Another idea for a newborn gift to truly pamper them is a lovely, soft blanket or swaddle. A blanket is essential to give a baby a wonderfully warm welcome, whether they're in their out on a walk or in their bassinet. In cotton, bambou or even cashmere, at Melijoe, we have all your must-haves.
Made with the most beautiful prints, colors and materials, comforters are there to provide all the coziness a baby needs. As far as swaddles are concerned, they have the similar function to a blanket with a few differences: they are used to wrap babies to make them feel like they are still in their mothers' tummies. However, theythey can also be used as a cuddly toy or a bib and are very practical for changing a baby (you can slide the diaper underneath) or as a protection on a shoulder when burping. Our baby swaddles are adorned with prints and materials that will be a welcome addition to a mother's maternity bag, and whether you choose a blanket or something lighter, parents and babies will love them in their first moments together.
