Even though our government has lifted the COVID-19 lockdown due to the pandemic Coronavirus outbreak, it is not safe to go outside like before yet. As coronavirus is still out there. To be fully safe, we have to wait for the vaccine to generate and reach each of us! Till then we have to maintain our lockdown. But as a parent, we have the sole responsibility to ensure our baby’s health and nourishment needs are taken care of even during this adverse situation.
With all people in Coronavirus quarantine, supplies of essential goods like food products and toiletries have reached a drip. As an adult, we can understand the situation and manage it but it is not possible when we have a little one with us. During this time of crisis, it may not be possible to grab on every kind of baby product but the very essentials are mandatory for your newborn to stay nourished and importantly hygienic.

Nappies & Accessories
These include your baby’s diaper and wet wipes. As your baby is a newborn, you will be required to change her diaper about 10-12 times a day for sure. So, always have stock ready.

It will eliminate your worry about having sufficient stock as they are reusable and they are cost-effective too.
