Are you expecting for the first time and have an endless shopping list? You don’t have to buy the most expensive high-end products especially for items that you will only use for a couple of months. Here are some products that can help you save money but still enjoy the quality and the same results of the expensive alternatives.
Make your own maternity pants
You don’t need to buy maternity jeans and just use it for nine months. You can easily use one of your comfy leggings or jeggings, get a lycra top, cut it horizontally from the middle, and attach it to the pants. This way you can still use it after delivery. Watch the video for different hacks.
After delivery, if you plan on breastfeeding your baby, you will need to buy dozens of nursing pads. I would suggest saving your money and using cabbage leaves instead for better results. Cabbage leaves have a magical effect on breast engorgement.
El Sayaad undershirts
It’s your first baby and you’re buying everything from scratch. You can save a lot by buying the undershirts and basics from El Sayaad. The products have very good quality that endures frequent washing.
Ikea feeding chair
No comparison in price with high-end brands. The Ikea feeding chair is recommended by many Rahet Bally moms as it is very practical and useful. However, the seat is unpadded and cannot be reclined so it is unsuitable for young babies.
Hedeya nursing bra
You can use it instead of buying a chair and it’s easier to manage while bathing your baby during the first six months. Wash it after each bath to keep it clean and to protect its odor.
