Car Seat & More 

If your following me on Snapchat you would have seen me down in Bella Baby Cork picking up my car seat for baby JJ. It’s the first of the essential items that I need and I felt so comfortable leaving it in the hands of the highly trained staff in the store.

When it comes to baby stuff I am clueless .

I visited the store a few months back and had a really in depth consultation. I found this extremely helpful. As much as people/friends advise you everyones circumstances, lifestyle and budget are all different so it’s important to have it tailored to you and baby.

In this blog post I have listed the items I have gotten so far, I copied the information directly from the site so that I can give you the accurate specifications on each item.

I don’t want to give my personal views on this sort of topic as these are safety products.

Experience peace of mind with the Respisense Ditto Breathing Monitor, designed to monitor baby’s breathing as they sleep.
