Shopping for baby should not be as hard as it has been protrayed. With a proper plan and timing process, you can have a stress free baby item shopping.
Depending on your account, we recommend you start shopping as early as possible. This is good, because you would be more calm and alert to pick your desired taste. Shopping when you are almost due will result in early fatigue and you end up undershopping or overshopping.
Shop for items that are not gender specific, even if your scan has assured you of your baby’s gender. Make sure the bag containing your baby item is distinct from every other bags. This makes it easy to identify.
Let your partner know where your baby items are. When dealing with emergency, you might not be available to sort out the items you have gotten, it is a good practice to let those that close know where the baby items are kept.
Above all, you can register with us here at Monmartt, and we would be happy to help you put the steam off.

Lots of newborns find the dressing and undressing experience upsetting. The quicker and calmer you are, the less stress for both you and your baby!
Here are some tips that might help:
1. Make sure the room is warm enough, then place your baby on a soft surface.
2. Put a nappy on your baby to avoid him weeing on you.
3. Stretch the neck of a singlet and, supporting your baby’s head, put the singlet on from the back. Be careful it doesn’t touch your baby’s face as you pull the front over her head – little babies can get very upset by clothes scraping their faces.
4. Do the reverse when undressing, once again trying not to let the clothes touch your baby’s face.
5. Gently place baby’s arms through the arm holes.
6. If you’re dressing your baby in a jumpsuit, unbutton or unzip it and lay him on top. Place his arms and legs into the holes and do up the zip or snap fasteners.
7. Make sure your baby’s legs and arms are clothed if she’s going out in the sun – but it’s better to keep her out from direct sun altogether if you can.
In the Philippines, broken papaya (pawpaw) leaves and sugar cane stalks are stroked over the mother’s breasts in a ceremony that is meant to ensure a good milk supply.
In some rural towns in Japan, it is common to place figurines and pictures of a breastfeeding woman to help increase a nursing mother’s milk supply.
In some developing cultures, colostrum is considered to be a sign of infection or poison and is not given to a newborn baby – mothers will actually express this milk and throw it away!
Don’t worry; this isn’t actually true and this liquid gold should never be discarded.
Based on the teaching of the Quran, many Muslim women will breastfeed their children for at least two years.
In many cultures, foods are classified as “hot” or “cold” foods. This involves more than just their temperatures, but overall “hot” foods are supposed to be easier to digest. Many people from Chinese or Vietnamese backgrounds believe that after childbirth only hot foods may be served to a new mother to help her heal and be able to nurse properly.
In many African cultures, it is believed that a child should be walking before weaning is even tried. The average age of weaning worldwide ranges from 27 months to 7 years. The weaning age in the United States tends to be much earlier.
Wet-nursing (or nursing a baby who you have not given birth to) is considered acceptable in traditional Japanese, Chinese, and Thai cultures, but only if the babies nursed by the one mother are of the same sex. Additionally, in many cultures, babies who have been nursed by the same women are considered “milk siblings” and may not marry each other, even if they are unrelated by blood.
Some cultures mark introducing solids as a big milestone for a baby to achieve. For example, in some Bangladeshi cultures, weaning is celebrated by giving a baby six rice grains to mark the occasion when he or she turns 6 months old.
The celebration of Ramadan, which is a month-long period when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, exempts breastfeeding women who need those extra calories! Some women will later fast to “payback” this time, while others will feed poor people to make up for these “extra” meals.
