The world is buzzing following the arrival of the royal baby, and here at POPSUGAR Australia, we couldn't be happier for Kate and Prince William! Over on Health & Fitness we've got some handy tips when it comes to cooking for two, but now it's time to talk products. You don't have to go too crazy buying up every "baby" product in sight, as there's more than a few adult staples that are safe to use on bub, too.
We love some baby news in the office and today was a double-whammy with the Beckhams' latest arrival, Harper Seven, and Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy's little bundle of joy being born over the weekend. As usual, the first thing we thought of was shopping because it's a proven fact that shopping for little ones is even more fun than shopping for yourself! And they couldn't have planned it more perfectly with the Beckhams having a girl and Kate and Matt having a boy — we can take one of everything in pink and blue! If you're on the hunt for some cute baby gifts, look no further, here's our edit of the best beauty bits for bubs. What's catching your eye?
We're on baby watch while we await Rachel Zoe's little bundle of joy to arrive, plus with gorgeous Aussie model Kristy Hinze the latest celeb jumping aboard the baby bandwagon and Victoria Beckham confirming that she's (finally!) having a baby girl, we thought what better excuse than to do a little baby shopping! We've rounded up our top ten favourite baby products — altogether now, coochy coochy coo!
Seriously, WHAT is in the water right now? It's baby central! At the weekend we had Princess Mary add twins to her super-cute brood, and KerrBloom were blessed with an undoubtedly beautiful baby boy. Then we found out that Victoria Beckham's expecting child number four, joining the ranks of the A-list preggers crew which includes Natalie Portman, Jennifer Connelly, Penélope Cruz, Rachel Zoe, Mariah Carey and Owen Wilson's girlfriend. Jeez Louise! To mark the special occasions, we've gathered together some luxurious products for mum-to-be, little ones and new mums . . .

Harris Poll conducted by Johnson's® revealed that 40% of adults — guys and girls — regularly use baby products on themselves.
Heather Cabot, a consumer trends expert, said that “more than a third of the consumers using these products don’t even have kids at home.” So why the sudden boom in the baby beauty market? As always, it's to do with the economy. We get to slice the price of looking good thanks to innovative and multi-purpose baby products. Take baby oil: it can be used as a handy alternative to WD-40 as well as giving legs a shimmering sheen and helping to gently remove makeup. But according to Heather, baby products also let us hang onto our childhood memories for longer proving that we're all just big kids at heart.
