A newborn is always a source of happiness. But before their arrival there is a
lot of preparation that needs to be done, and typically a lot of shopping! You
may be trying to prepare the baby's bedroom, shop for a car seat, stroller, baby
clothes, and toys or stock up on the basics like diapers and wet-wipes. Whatever
it is you are looking for, you can be pretty sure that with enough searching,
you will be able to find it now in Turkey. This was not always the case however,
and only a few years ago, it was not even possible to find prepared baby food
in jars. Today, it is widely available in the better pharmacies, some grocery
) and also at Toys 'R' Us
tend to carry most products that may be needed urgently by families with babies
such as formula, bottles, diapers, and wet-wipes.
Meanwhile mothers-to-be need to adjust their wardrobe, especially during the
later months of pregnancy. Shops called Hamile Butik (boutique for mother-to-be)
prepare new collections every year, and most collections are comfortable as
well as fashionable. In particular, international brands such as Mothercare,
Chicco and Premaman are most likely to carry fashions that appeal to most foreigners,
though of course, you will pay a premium for their brands. The above mentioned
stores also sell cribs, strollers, car seats, baby clothes and more. For the
largest selection of ‘baby' stuff (though not maternity clothes unfortunately),
you would be best to visit one of the Toys 'R' Us stores.
To learn about the Turkish traditions surrounding pregnancy and birth, please
consult the sections titled Alla Turca , then the sub heading, Traditions.
We wish a pleasant pregnancy period and an easy delivery to all pregrant mothers
