5 Must Haves for Moms

Becoming a new mom is one of the most exciting events that can happen in a woman’s life, but with excitement comes a lot of unexpected stress. You find yourself having temporary memory loss, you start questioning yourself, you cry during every single animal shelter commercial, and sleep is rare and sometimes even obsolete. In addition, there are so many baby products out there that promise to make your life as a new mom easier and you think that if you don’t buy them all that you may be labeled as a bad mom. As a mom of 6 and as the owner of a home daycare that works with a lot of first-time moms, I am here to tell you that it’s going to be okay. So in an effort to make your life a little bit easier, I want to share with you, my 5 must-haves for new moms.

5 Must Haves for New Moms

One of my biggest tips for new moms is to not panic, use your best judgment, breath, and have fun. I am hoping that my 5 must-haves for new moms, will help you do this.

  • Onesies- For the first few months of a babies life, babies eat, sleep, spit up, and go potty over and over throughout the entire day. It is normal to change a babies outfit up to 5 times a day, so since onesies are simple to put on, easy to wash, and not very expensive, they are a must-have for new moms.
  • Swing- Most newborn babies want to have a moving sensation. In an effort to give them what they want and help soothe them, it’s helpful to have a swing. When you purchase a swing, make sure to look at the weight limit and purchase one that can be used for older babies as well. As a baby gets older they tend to enjoy the swing for other purposes, so doing this will help you save money.
  • Video Baby Monitor- I never knew how important a video baby monitor was until I had my last child. I do not know how I lived without a video baby monitor for so many years. This kind of monitor gives you a peace of mind that is very important to not only new moms but all parents.
  • Batteries- You can never have too many batteries, so it’s important that you make sure to stock up on them. From the baby swing to the monitor, to the toy that helps soothe your baby to sleep, a big supply of batteries are a must.
  • Huggies Snug & Dry diapers- Until a baby is 100% potty trained, you will need an endless supply of diapers in all sizes. If you are not a first-time mom and you’ve run out of diapers at 10 pm or on a day when your baby is sick and it’s not convenient to run to the store, you know how hard that can be to deal with. That is why I recommend all of my new moms and experienced moms to purchase their diapers in bulk and purchase a quality diaper like Huggies Snug & Dry. I have always purchased Huggies Snug & Dry diapers at Sam’s Club not only because of the great value they offer but because of the size options that they provide in diapers.

I have always been a fan of Huggies Snug & Dry diapers. I have used them for years and I even recommend new moms and experienced moms to use these diapers. What I love most about them is that they come in a variety of sizes, provide up to 12 hours of protection and keep baby’s skin dry, which in turn, make for a happy baby and a happy mom.

Whenever I need baby supplies for myself or for gifting to a new mom, I always make sure to shop at Sam’s Club. They have a huge variety of Huggies Snug & Dry from sizes 1-5. Another great reason to shop at Sam’s Club for your diapers and everyday needs is that they have a pickup service option. This is great because first, it’s never fun to shop with kids and second, if your new baby is ill or if you don’t want to bring him or her out in public this will allow you to get what you need without having to peruse the store. Also, right now, you can use the Ibotta app and save $7 off of Huggies Snug & Dry diapers at Sam’s Club. If you have not downloaded the Ibotta App, go and do it now, you can save so much money.
