We’ve tried telling you that commitment is messy, but you didn’t want to listen. Now, you’ve made the ultimate commitment – there’s a baby on the way.
As a sleep-deprived parent, navigating the world of baby gear can feel like trekking through an uncharted jungle, wielding a rattle as your only weapon. Don’t worry, we’re here to make it easier for you.
Baby goods can be expensive. From the stroller and the car seat, to high chairs, clothes, bottles, toys, and more, your wallet is guaranteed to feel the pinch. And once your little treasure has outgrown these products, what happens to them? They end up taking space and gathering dust in a corner. And who wants the hassle and frustration of trying to sell them on some marketplace site?
Instead of breaking the bank purchasing baby products your little one won’t need in a few years, rather subscribe to products you can return when you no longer need them. The beauty of subscribing to these baby goods instead of buying them is that when you no longer need them, you can simply return or exchange them for something new (like that PlayStation 5 you really want).
Here are a few of the top products you’ll need for your bundle of joy that you can subscribe to right now.
No pressure, but it’s kind of your job to keep your baby safe. Hey, you wanted the commitment of a baby. The first step? Getting a car seat.
Keep your little adventurer safe on road trips, mall excursions and family visits in the Maxi Cosi Pebble 360 (R500 per month). Buckle up for peace of mind without compromising on coolness. The Pebble 360 is able to rotate super smoothly for ease of use and contains an ergonomic carrying handle, making it easy for you to carry your baby wherever you go.
It also has special ClimaFlow panels, and breathable foam and fabrics that encourage air circulation, as well as G-Cell side impact technology for extra cushioning and protection. Safety just got a whole lot cooler!
They See Me Strolling
You gotta leave the house at some point – ideally before you go stir crazy from being trapped in one room with your screaming offspring. Unfortunately, you can’t just leave your baby and go. You'll need a stroller for hot girl or hot boy walks on the promenade, or visits to the mall for some urgent retail therapy.
Welcome to the Rolls Royce of baby strollers. The BaobabTrees High Rider (R190 per month) is suitable for babies from newborn to 36 months. It features an adjustable handle, bi-directional movement and folding, an integrated frame design that better supports your baby’s developing spine, and four-wheel shock absorbers.
It’s super easy to fold and store so it doesn’t take up tons of space. And the best part? The seat is made from cashmere linen fabric. Because it's never too early to indulge in a little luxury.
Feeding Time Fun
Picture this: You're trying to spoon-feed your little mini-me, dodging peas and mashed carrots like a ninja. Next thing, you, your couch, and the walls are coated in a vomit-hued layer of food you spent too long preparing.
That’s not cute. Avoid the hassle and drama with a high chair. The Baby Wombs World Convertible Baby High Chair (R150 per month) isn’t just a chair; it's a tiny tot throne, designed to keep your kiddo safely secured while you feed them without wearing half the meal as a trendy new outfit.
You can feed your baby in a way that suits you with the chair’s easily adjustable height feature. Cleaning the chair is easy, thanks to the removable eating tray and cushion. This chair can support your child’s weight until they reach 25kg.
This isn’t as much for your baby as it is for you. You’re gonna be pretty busy taking care of a helpless baby, so you’ll probably have less time to clean. Plus, at some point they’ll start crawling – which is when you’re really gonna want to get rid of those pesky dust bunnies.
Luckily, you can get a robot vacuum to do the work for you. The Xiaomi S10+ Robot Vacuum Cleaner (R760 per month) comes with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa support so you can connect your phone.
LDS laser navigation, and 3D obstacle avoidance make this a hyper-capable cleaner. Combine that with total control through the app, and four suction speeds, and you'll never need to worry about dusty floors again. You’re welcome.
Having a baby is a massive commitment, so why commit to anything else? You’re pretty much stuck with your kid but you don’t need to be attached to your products forever. With subscriptions, you can get the products you need now, and return them for something new when you don’t. Simple.
Commitment is messy. Just Rentoza it.
