Smallist Newborn Essentials

If you are expecting your first baby or just welcomed a newborn, CONGRATULATIONS! We have rounded up a few of our Smallist essentials to set you and baby up for pram walks, snuggle time and hopefully a good night’s sleep. There’s no doubt that it can be overwhelming to think about all the stuff you need, but we have taken out the guesswork – you’re welcome! 

Bambini Prams 

Engineered to rock your newborn baby whilst in motion or stationery, the MILAN is the only modern pram with integrated rocking system that every first-time parent dreams about (trust me on this… there is a lot of rocking!). These gorgeous European prams provide the old-age #sprungpram experience with a dynamic modern style. Available in the lightweight and multifunctional MILAN for modern city parents and the classic YORK for lovers of traditional style. Stand out from the crowd with the stylish design, luxe eco-leather trims and matching accessories.


Do you have a toddler and a newborn? Babybee have got you covered. With two options for growing families including the duo2 and the luna, Babybee are committed to bringing you unbeatable value, contemporary design and most importantly safe products that are a dream to use. Their Melbourne-based team are devoted to understanding exactly what Australian families want; from the convenience of online shopping to smart product features that make #parentlife much easier. We especially love the practical storage and sleek design. 


Musluv help you get outside into the world with your newborn baby by providing excellent sun protection for your little one. Their UV baby sun covers have been developed to keep your baby safe, cool and comfortable wherever you go and leave you confident to get out and about! We love how practical they are, from covering the pram while baby sleeps to playing on the mat at the park!

Spark of Wild 

Here’s a must-have item that is 100% worth the investment. Daily use is guaranteed because it’s the ultimate baby bag in disguise! Spark of Wild is an accessories brand for Mums who refuse to sacrifice style. With a range of modern, luxe, and minimalistic designs, these leather bags will withstand the test of time. We approve of the handy compartments and matching accessories like the change mat and coin purse. It’s the ultimate accessory for every Mama! 


Available in a wide range of patterns, textures and colours, the Merino wool blankets will last for years and are super handy for snuggly pram walks. All Uimi products are proudly designed and manufactured from their factory in Thornbury, Australia. Uimi create a unique range of slow fashion and textiles from renewable extra fine Merino wool, Egyptian cotton and Cashmere cotton. We love that they only choose natural fibres because they are bio-degradable, naturally soft and breathable. 

Ip Dip Do 

A fun, relaxed baby wear brand that designs gender neutral pieces in beautiful organic fabrics and organic dyes at accessible price points. Fashion with integrity is the heart beat of Ip Dip Do with ever evolving sustainability practises at its core; from the packaging to the vegan friendly vinyls used. We are obsessed with the new Nimi personalised lounge collection, seen here. Personalise your special little person’s lounge top with their initials – so cute!  

Pop Ya Tot 

We love that all of the Pop Ya Tot products are certified organic cotton and ethically made. Created by Pia in Melbourne, Pop Ya Tot is full of personality, featuring unique patterns and clever design. Pia noticed a gap in the market for bedding that would work with her aesthetic when she became a mum of two boys. The result is a range of fashion-forward colourways and patterns to suit many decor styles. 

Mulberry Threads

Luxe bamboo bedding and sleepwear for adults and kids, using the finest natural and organic textiles. Their collection has been designed with uncompromising comfort, quality and style in mind. Founded through a shared love of soft, natural fabrics and ideal for those with eczema and other skin allergies. We are peachy-keen on this 100% Organic Bamboo Cot set

Luna’s Treasures 

Luna’s Treasures focus on designing and manufacturing their own range of bamboo muslin baby wraps and accessories. Including beautiful bamboo jersey baby wraps, sheets, cot and knit blankets. The new collection includes a gorgeous range of block colours, with optional baby bonnet or baby bows to match! This family business is full of heart with a strong focus on sustainability and environmentally friendly business practices.
