Celebrity mums Megan Gale, Zoe Marshall and Nikki Phillips have shared their baby product knowledge with authors Samantha Brett and Carly Abraham for their new book, Buying for Baby.

The new publication gives new parents and parents-to-be a 'month-by-month' guide to the often baffling world of baby products, detailing the essentials for each age and stage of babyhood.

Admittedly a lot of the products are high-end and out of reach for many new parents, but it's certainly a window into the luxury nursery products celeb mums love to indulge in for their little ones.

Seeking advice from celebrity mums who've had a few years of parenting knowledge under their belts, the book shares Megan, Zoe and Nikki's top five picks for baby.

Model Megan Gale thinks Bugaboo prams are worth their hefty price tags - usually $2,000+ - naming the brand her favourite for prams saying they're "sturdy, durable and comfortable" and suit outdoorsy types.

She also says she was "super diligent" about naming Britax as the "Rolls Royce of car seats" saying parents "can't go wrong" in terms of safety ratings.

Media personality Zoe Marshall says a food delivery service is "ideal" for new mums who "don't have time to cook let alone make healthy food choices."

And model-slash-MC Nikki Phillips names a $1,200 cot as "the best cot ever."

See what these high-profile mums have on their "must-have" lists for baby.
