Pregnant Rochelle Humes is expecting baby number three this October – and the star mum has revealed the 30 baby essentials that she can’t live without.
With two previous pregnancies under her belt, the Saturdays singer certainly knows what works for newborns and babies, and has shared her favourites in a bid to help other mums and dads to be.
She teamed up with Amazon to curate her very own Baby Wish List, which details the 30 items she could not live without as a new mum.
Rochelle said: “Having a baby is such and exciting time but it can also be quite daunting, especially thinking about all of the things you need to keep your baby happy and safe.
“This is my third baby and it’s more important than ever that I am organised as I already have my hands full looking after my two daughters!
“Making an Amazon Baby Wish List is a great way to organise and plan your shopping and I love how easy it is to share with family and friends.
“I had so much fun making this wish list and I hope it will be helpful to other expectant parents trying to navigate life with a newborn.”
The 31-year-old member of The Saturdays is expecting a boy with husband, JLS hunk Marvin Humes, 35, and the baby is due in just a matter of weeks – joining sisters seven-year-old Alaia-Mai and three-year-old Valentina.
The list includes Rochelle’s top recommendation for a baby monitor, pushchair and car seat, as well as everyday items such as nappies and wipes.
There is also an added discount for Wishlist users, with all the items on Rochelle’s list qualifying for reductions of up to 20%.
An Amazon Baby Wishlist is simple to set up and allows you to add items from any website in one comprehensive list, with the help of Amazon Assistant.
The personalised list can then be shared with friends and family, making it ideal for baby showers or christenings.
Here’s our pick of Rochelle’s baby essentials list
These highly rated nappies are designed for dry, leak-free wear, and provide up to 12 hours of protection. They’re thin for maximum comfort and feature a supersoft embossed inner layer to keep your baby feeling fresh. At 11p per nappy they compare favourably with rival premium brands such as Pampers.
The trend for huge prams has moved on to more compact, practical styles including this clever idea from Doona. This is the world’s first car seat with built in wheels, making it instantly mobile as soon as it’s unclipped from the matching ISOFIX base. Popular with celebs the world over, this is a handy style of pram which makes nipping out quickly with baby a lot easier.
If you are at the start of your breastfeeding journey you will quickly find that if you could have only one thing to help, it will be this incredible cream. Soothing, healing, and safe to use while your baby is latched on, this is the absolute go-to when cracked, painful and even bleeding nipples send out an SOS.
If you are making formula up for your baby then this gadget will be a time saver and a sanity saver – especially at 3am in the morning.

This cult teething toy in an adorable giraffe design is the perfect soft toy for a young baby. Designed in chewable, safe natural rubber, the shape is easy to hold and offers lots of ways for sore gums to soothe and explore the toy.
Babies, especially newborns, are soothed by white noise and the soft echo of a heartbeat that they experienced in the womb, and there are several products on the market that emulate these sounds to help a good night’s sleep. This plush cloud soother can be attached to a cot or become a take-along friend as your baby grows into a toddler. The multi colour lights capture a baby’s attention while the music and sounds keep them calm and dozing.
