When I started to prepare what I needed for my baby, I didn't know where to start and what to get! I researched a lot, asked all my mama friends but still, I felt it was not easy as everyone was advising different things and most of my friends don't live in Dubai so not the same climate and a lot of things are different : what is provided at the hospital for example. So here is MY list of what to buy in Dubai and where to get them. Now my baby is 7 weeks I know what is essential (for me) and what is not. Hope this will be useful for you Mamas to be!
To be honest I didn't buy any clothes for Charlie as we got everything as presents! So don't buy too many as you will probably get a lot of clothes! Apart from bodies and pyjamas, nothing is essential but nice to dress your baby with something different sometimes, when you go out or just for a change. Personally I like to see her in body and pyjama or even just in body when we turn the air-con off.
