Baby clothes are often gendered, but does every accessory have to be in pink or blue? A lot of baby products are marketed towards women. This means lots of feminine designs, patterns, and prints. But these don’t suit everyone. If you’re a father, you might want to opt for more gender neutral designs when it comes to pushchairs, car seats and the rest of the works. But where can you find these kinds of items? Well, here’s a quick guide to buying attractive and functional baby accessories without the unnecessary glitter, flowers, and frills.
Pushchairs are an absolute essential when you have a baby. How else are you going to get baby comfortably from A to B when you’re out and about? Pushchairs tend to vary dramatically. Sadly, it’s usually one extreme or the other. On the one hand, you can have a luxury pushchair. But this will more than likely be frilled, lacy and feminine as can be. On the other hand are the bargain pushchairs. Minimal designs, but on an overly minimal product. So what do you do when you want your baby to be comfortable and travel in style, but without the over the top accessories? Well, the Jane Pushchair would be a good place to start. Jane is one of the leading brands for pushchairs and will guarantee comfort, security, and safety for your little one. The designs are luxurious but avoid garish colours and designs. Perfect for any dad or dad-to-be.
Don’t fancy pushing a pram around? Pushchairs are useful and will take a load off your arms when it comes to doing your day to day things with a baby in hand. However, they’re not the only option. They can often prove large and difficult to manoeuvre in small spaces. This is inconvenient if you only want to nip down to the shops. An alternative to the pushchair is a baby carrier. This is essentially a soft structured carrier which allows you to carry your little bundle of joy on your front. Kind of like a baby rucksack, but much more comfortable, supportive and genuinely safe. These will keep baby close to you, which is comforting for both you and your baby. Ensure to buy from a premium brand with good quality products if you invest in a baby carrier. Your little one’s comfort and safety are a top priority.
If you plan on taking your little one in a car, a car seat is essential. A car seat fits into your car and is strapped in. It ensures that your baby is safe and protected during every journey. Before fitting a car seat, make sure you follow all instructions involved. If your baby is going to be in the front seat beside you, make sure that you are certain that the passenger airbag is turned off. Remember to turn it back on if other passengers get into your car and baby is no longer in the front. There are loads of neutral car seat designs, made for babies as young as newborn to toddlers.
