If you need to pick up some essentials for your little one (or an impending arrival!), we’ve picked our favourites from the Dunnes Stores baby event.

You’ll find maternity basics and babywear, as well as feeding, travel, sleep and changing essentials. With brands like NUK, Chicco, Babylo, Haakaa, Tommee Tippee, Pampers and WaterWipes, there’s plenty to choose from. Take a peek below!

What’s in the Dunnes Stores Baby Event?

Maternity Wear

The Savida Maternity range offers some key pieces that you can add to your new wardrobe. The prices are good, and each piece is vastly adaptable to dress up or down.

The button detail sweatshirt, €20, comes in hot pink, pale pink or grey and is designed to accommodate your growing bump, allowing you to unbutton as needed.

Over the bump maternity jeans are essential, and these skinny jeans, €20, come in black too. Similarly, a little black dress is always a great idea, and this scoop neck midi dress, €20, is both stylish and super comfortable.


Dunnes baby vests

Simple, neutral vests, sleepsuits, socks and bibs are included in the baby event, as well as multipacks of organic cotton bodysuits and vests. Perfect for those early days!

Dunnes babywear

We love these fun crew neck sweatshirts, and even more that they’re available in multiple prints and colours (avoiding the typical pink and blue…).

At €5 for the sweatshirts and €4 for the coordinating bottoms, you can mix and match to find your perfect combo. Available from 6months-4years.

Nappies and Wipes

Get ready for all the nappy changing ahead with jumbo packs of Pampers nappies in a wide range of sizes, from newborn to training pants, WaterWipes in various size packs, or Dunnes brand nappies and wipes.

Note: these are all available online only.

While a nappy bin is not a truly essential item, I personally found it invaluable. We lived in an apartment with a newborn and it saved a trip out to the bins after every nappy change!

This Tommee Tippee Click and Twist Nappy Disposal System is reduced to €19.99, and you can also stock up on the refill casettes.

Travel Essentials

Get out and about with one of the strollers included in the baby event. These Chicco and Babylo strollers are both lightweight options at great prices.

Alternatively, skip the wheels and pick up a Chicco Easy Fit Baby Carrier, €24.99, which is suitable to use from birth.

Another invaluable item is a portable black out blind – we used ours far more than I thought we would!

At just €19.99, the Tommee Tippee black-out blind is an easy pack to bring on holidays, to a childminder’s, or just a quick fix to darken baby’s room for daytime naps.

Nail clippers, thermometer, nasal aspirator, soft brush…this nine-piece Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Healthcare Kit is a no-brainer. Plus it comes in a pack that makes it the perfect travel kit.

A changing bag that holds all your new essentials is worth it’s weight in gold! This neutral bag, €20, has plenty of pockets to hold everything and an adjustable strap that means you can wear it cross-body for when you need both hands free. Note: this is an online only item.

Sleepwear and Essentials

Skip the blankets that inevitably get kicked off and try a grow bag instead. There are several patterns to choose from and two tog weights available, 1.5 and 2.5, to keep baby snug.

The Gro Egg is a great purchase for baby’s nursery, and one of the items many of our mums recommend. The colour-changing room thermometer can tell you at a glance whether the room is too cold, warm or the perfect temperature.

Another great visual for older children is the Gro Clock that acts as a sleep trainer, letting toddlers come to grips with the difference between ‘night’ and ‘morning’.

Dunnes TT micro steriliser

One of the items most recommended to us by other mums was the convenient microwave steriliser.

This steriliser takes just 4 minutes to sterilise 4 bottles, and keeps them sterile for 24 hours. Note: this is an online only item.

Dunnes breast pump

The Haakaa silicone breast pump (another mum must-have!) is a simple way to express any time. Plus it’s only one-piece which makes clean up easy.

While there are no toys included in the baby event this time, there are two great options for playtime – a Babylo travel cot at €39.99 and this portable play pen, €59.99, which has a zip up door.
