Motherhood is one of the hardest jobs’ women do in life, but it’s also the most rewarding one. Becoming a mom comes with a lot of responsibilities, a whole new list of wants, needs and most of all, a lot of joy. The truth is a woman becomes a mom as soon as she gets that first positive pregnancy test. It’s like everything changes, and we are instantly in love with our unborn. I can’t explain the feeling in words, but I am sure if you have ever been pregnant you understand. It’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. I have noticed that fathers often don’t understand our connection and bond until the baby is actually here. Sure they are excited, but it’s not the same as what we often feel during pregnancy. As a brand new mom, we spend the whole nine months preparing for our new bundle of joy and trying to make sure everything is perfect. That also includes making sure that our babies have everything they need as soon as we deliver. We spend countless hours trying to find the prefect and safest products for our baby; this sometimes can get overwhelming since there are so many baby products and brands on the market, but with the help of Pampers® and Walmart, you can make sure you are equipped with all the essentials.
At Walmart, you can find all the baby products necessary for your new bundle of joy, but even better; you can find tips from other new moms and the brand they trust, which is Pampers®. To make it easier to ensure you get your entire list of new baby needs, you can register online at Walmart so your friends and family can make sure you have what you need and want. I always tell my friends and family that it’s very important for them to create a baby registry! This ensures that you get what you need and will actually use! This also saves you time in the long run because you’re not having to go exchange gifts, which give you more time to relax before the big day!
I admit sometimes making a baby registry is difficult because you are not sure what you need, and because you want your new baby to be as comfortable as possible, moms often put everything on the list. Trust me this is a big mistake! Take it from someone who has been there and done that! The truth is half of the stuff you think you want or need will never be used and just take up space! That is why Pampers Baby Basics for Any Mom on Walmart.com’s Parent & Baby Center is a great place to start. You will find great advice from other parents on what is actually needed including the Pampers Swaddlers Super Pack. I can’t tell you enough how great it was not having to buy diapers and wipes for the first year! I was blessed with so many things that I actually needed not only during the first few weeks but for the first year. So when creating your baby registry don’t just put things on there that you need for the first few months, think long term like diapers in different sizes, wipes, baby bath, lotions and other items that will actually grow with your baby.
In the comments below please share with me what items you couldn’t live without the first year of your babies life or what gifts you got for your baby shower that was most helpful.
