Somewhere safe to sleep.

Good food, often.

Someone who loves you both. Whether it’s your other half; mum, best friend, anyone will do!

A sense of humour. The only way tried and true way through a poonami.

Something to wear. Warm & comfortable – even if that does mean pyjamas everyday for a month.

Don’t be alarmed, my more materialistic list of things you might need for your newborn will be coming soon! #babygear is addictive, no?
