As a mom of one and with one on the way, here are five products I will be depending on once again when babe number TWO makes an appearance! The best part is I can purchase them online at www.walmart.ca and take advantage of the FREE shipping. A definite perk when I'm chasing a 3 year old around!
Lansinoh Lanolin Nipple Cream; For breastfeeding mamas this cream can be a saviour. Let's face it….Breastfeeding is natural, but your body may take some adjusting to when you have your little bundle feeding off of you hours and hours each day. This cream worked wonders for me, and comes highly regarded by hospital staff too!
Muslin Cotton Blankets; I love love love these blankets as they serve many purposes. From a nursing cover, to a cozy swaddle, to wiping up all that spit up and….well…. sudden other newborn explosions, these blankets are great and just get softer and softer with each wash! A definite must have!
Tommee Tippee Pacifiers– Some parents use pacifiers, others opt not to, but it may be something you want on hand just in case. With my first I had decided not to use a pacifier, and after about a month decided it was the only thing that would soothe him and give me some peace and quiet! (and ofcourse my sanity). These "closer to nature" ones from Tommee Tippee are great and come in cute and netural designs!
Diapers: Changing a newborn baby is a frequent daily occurence and hence you will go through a TON of diapers! Whether you have decided to use disposables, or cloth, you should stock up! If using disposables the FREE shipping option from www.walmart.ca comes in really handy, as they will come straight to your door. You already have enough to haul around with that babe and diaper bag in tote!
momstown Program Pass; One of the hardest things as a new mom is getting out and socializing with your new (and demanding) bundle. But when you have a group of moms in the same boat as you to share experiences with, it makes it so much easier. Every mom should experience a program like Baby Basics, and at momstown it is provided in a relaxed, casual environment. And the pass grows with your baby, programs are available to suit your baby's development with events right from newborn to school aged kids. A year's membership is just $85 and it includes all your programming.
Thanks to Walmart Canada, our momstown London mamas had a great chat about Baby Essentials at our Every Little Step: Baby Basics Program last week!
