While I’m all for saving money on the baby products I need to buy, there may be occasions where it’s worth while spending a little bit more on a product that has extra benefits for your newborn.
While I have previously written about how I’m buying a combination of brand new and second-hand baby products for our little girl, today I’m going to talk about a few items I think it’s actually worth spending a little more on, if you can afford it. While I’m all for saving money where I can, I’m also all about balance. So here are some baby products I love and while they may not be the cheapest around I think it’s worth paying a little bit extra for them.
While this is intended as a baby product, I have to admit I’m currently using this myself after it being recommended to me by several friends and family members. I started using it because during my pregnancy I developed a sensitivity the blood thinner clexane which I take because of having had a previous DVT. It smells lovely and has prevented any further irritation to my skin.
While I know most people opt for brands like Johnson’s in the early days this product is especially useful if your baby has very sensitive skin or is prone to eczema and other skin conditions.

Other than wanting shoes to be cute, you may not have given much thought to what you’ll be putting on babies on feet. DottyFish.com have the most adorable range of baby shoes and what’s even better they are designed with growing babies in mind and have been tested and approved by the London Podiatry Center. There are many benefits to these shoes, as well as coming in a range of adorable designs for both girls, boys and special occasions. In the same you might spend extra on Clarks shoes for an older child, these are the tiny baby equivalent for growing feet.
I choose some quite plain (although still gorgeous) pink baby shoes – going with the idea my little ones would get the most use out of them if the went with everything. However, there are a huge range to choose from including so beautiful and fun animal designs – see the full range here.
- Dottyfish shoes are flexible so babies feet can move naturally.
- The shoes are very lightweight allowing for natural ankle, knee and hip movement
- They are wide around the toes allowing feet to spread as they should when standing.
- The soles are thin so children’s toes can grip the floor as if they were barefoot.
- Designed for a snug fit so they don’t come off but do not restricting movement or growth
- Breathable material – Did you know baby’s feet sweat 2-3 times more than adult’s feet?
- available from newborn up to 4-5 years.
Continuing on the theme of feet, as someone who suffers with Reynauds, I always seem to have cold hands and feet, even in warmer a weather and this may have developed into a slight obsession with slippers and gloves. I wear slippers pretty much constantly when at home and get through several pairs each year – and I can see me obsessively checking the temperature of my little ones hands and feet too!
Mocc Ons are an adorable baby version of slippers which are designed not only to keep babies feet warm and toasty but also to stay on and not be easily pulled or kicked off. I chose the cute ballet dancer ones for my little girl, but they do have a wide range to suit all ages up to three years. They also offer a discount when buying more than one pair – perfect if you have more than one child or are buying for twins. The suede sole means they are perfect for toddlers walking on wooden floors as they stop them slipping around.
