Mother & Baby editor predicts Meghan Markle ‘will opt for eco-friendly reusable nappies’

Editor of the Mother & Baby magazine, Emma Kendell also suggested that mental-health campaigner Harry will be kitted up to check in on Meghan and baby's well being post-birth with the aid of the latest high-tech baby monitor.

And she also believes the couple will opt for a 'papoose' style carrier to keep their child close, like the one used by Daniel Craig, who garnered public support when he was mocked for the sling last year.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan branded the 007 actor 'emasculated' by carrying his baby with the sling – causing a subsequent Twitter storm of dads defending James Bond.

Emma's predictions on the royal shopping  list come just days after friends said the parents won't be imposing 'gender stereotypes' on their little one.

Thought to be due in April, Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, are sure to be prepping for the arrival of their first child as they look forward to the birth.

Just a few months ago during a trip to Belfast the lover-up pair were overheard joking about all the baby paraphernalia they would need as they were shown products from the latest Shnuggle range.

Gesturing towards a non-slip bath on display, the former actress laughed: "I'm sure at some point we will need the whole lot", with Harry adding: "How many have you got?"

Emma predicts that Harry and Meghan will be 'great parents' and has some items in mind that she thinks the couple are likely to choose.

Emma said: "I'm confident they will parent in their own way, picking and choosing what suits their lifestyle – which is going to make their journey really interesting to watch.

"Their wedding day showed that Harry and Meghan are very good at giving a nod to tradition but then mixing it up big time in their own style.

"But I think they're going to be great parents and we're all excited to see what they get up to as mum and dad to a new royal baby."

Analysing the latest in parenting trends, Emma believes that the couple will have a baby carrier on their list of things to buy for baby.

"I think we can safely assume that Meghan will be a baby-wearer with all the cradling she's been doing of her baby bump," Emma continued.

Emma suggested Harry and Meghan might choose the Boba X baby carrier, costing £125, which allows newborns to be carried facing inward and can later be used for toddlers on your back.

But she also included Boba's range of stretchy wraps in her predictions, including one made of a mix of cotton and bamboo, and another made of organic French Terry cotton, both costing £42.

The hands-free pump is silent, has no tubes or wires and fits inside a nursing bra – it can also be used with an app allowing remote control, live milk monitoring and tracking of times and quantities.

Emma thinks the environmentally-conscious Duke and Duchess might choose re-usable nappies for their little one, too.

And the washable pop-in newborn nappies by Close Parent, which currently cost £9.99, is a firm favourite with parents.

Meghan may also want to co-ordinate her skincare routine with her baby, thanks to the Kit & Kin Mum and Baby Bundle of natural products that both can use.

Costing £54.99, the kit includes body butter, breast balm and stretch mark oil for mum, as well as bubble bath, body wash and oil for baby.

For keeping a close eye on the royal baby and new mother Meghan, Emma picked out the new Bluebell smart monitoring system, priced at £299.

The state-of-the-art monitor clips onto the baby's clothes tracking their movement, temperature and breathing and sends alerts to the parents smartphone.

A matching parent wristband keeps count of a parent's steps, sleep and activity level – and it can also be used to record feeding and nappy changing times to create a routine.

Emma concluded: "With Harry being so supportive of mental health campaigns, I think he;s going to be very proactive when it comes to supporting Meghan mentally as she adjusts to being a mum."
