Baby monitor

With a baby monitor, you can use your time flexibly, sleep peacefully at night and still know at all times that your baby is doing well.

Nursing pillow

A good breastfeeding pillow has several advantages, because it helps you not only to breastfeed, but also to fall asleep and is also suitable as a nest.

Diaper bags

A diaper bag offers you a lot of storage space, so that you have everything you need for your baby on the go - from the changing pad to the bottle.


A pucksack gives your baby the feeling of security, like in the womb, and thus supports a peaceful and restful sleep.

Bicycle trailer

Bicycle trailers can be used in combination with a baby seat shortly after birth. They are not only safer than child seats but also more comfortable.


A playpen can be very practical in everyday life! Which model is suitable for your needs, you can read in my guide.

  1. I am a nanny and the 2 children I look after love to help with the washing. I fold the clothes and ask the 2 year old to open a specific drawer, pass the clothes to them and ask him to put them in the drawer. Once he has put them in he closes the drawer (I have to watch my fingers because he closes the drawer fast!) He only has a small dresser. The 4 year often copies how I fold clothes and does most of it herself sometimes asking for help. She knows where everything goes so I just have to encourage her to keep going. Once I have finished with the 2 year olds clothes I help her fold but she puts it all away in her drawers.

  2. I’m with Stephanie! I can’t wait until they’re able to fold the clothes lol. My kids are 3 & 6. They separate, wash, and dry…minus turning the machines on. It’s fun to them, and a stress reliever for me. Team work makes the dream work 🙂

  3. Kristin,

    I love this post! I have twins who will be four years old, but they’ve been helping me put the laundry in their drawers since they were around 3. Now they are folding little wash cloths and towels for me! Sometimes I let them take the clothes our of the dryer, but the laundry room is too enticing for my son and he just likes to check out things and turn knobs and things!!
