Out of the 1,000 parents in the survey – who have children aged five and under - two thirds found the feeling of their baby kick for the first time was their favourite memory. Half of parents admitted buying their baby's first item of clothing was their top memory and a third revealed preparing their little one's nursery was their most treasured moment while they were waiting for the arrival of their newborn baby.

The research didn't stop there because it also found that over half of parents agreed that holding their baby for the first time was the best memory of having a newborn baby. Surprisingly the fourth favourite memory on the list parents found was their baby meeting their siblings for the first time.
