New Mom Survival Kit List
1. More diapers than you think you need!
I have a post that answers the question: how many diapers of each size should I buy? Definitely read that for the specifics, but make sure you at least have plenty of the smaller sizes on hand.
Be sure to check out Member's Mark Premium Diapers from Sam's Club. They have a 100% money-back guarantee and they offer up to 12 hours of absorbent protection.
2. Wipes. So many wipes.
My sister likes to tell me that my brother-in-law can completely clean a baby's bottom with one wipe. I believe it's possible, but I see no reason to use as many wipes as you need to get everything clean when changing a diaper.
Member's Mark Premium Wipes have an average customer review of 5 out of 5 stars. These wipes also carry a 100% money-back guarantee, so there's no risk in taking advantage of the low price and trying them out!
3. Baby Wash and Shampoo
Baby needs to stay clean, and she needs a gentle cleanser that's sae for her skin. Given my own sensitive skin I've always been partial to Aveeno Baby products for myself and for my babies!
Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo is a gentle, paraben-free wash that cleans without drying. It's tear-free and it can be used on hair and skin.
4. Infant formula.
Babies need to eat and breastfeeding isn't for everyone. Check out the new Infant Member's Mark Infant Formula for complete nutrition for baby's first year. Further, using Member's Mark infant formula from Sam's Club can save you up to $500 per year!
5. Diaper Cream
Diaper rash can cause quite a bit of misery for both baby and her parents, and the right product can offer relief from the very first use.
With a dermatologist-tested formula, Desitin Rapid Relief Cream is the #1 choice of pediatricians and moms.
6. Other essential baby products of your choice:
From Johnson's baby lotion to Diaper Genie refills, new moms almost always need something. Sam's Club carries favorite brands AND high quality private brands, like Member's Mark, at equal quality for a lower price. Pick up everything for your New Mom Survival Kit list at Sam's Club!
