There is a new baby in town and you can call me GREAT Aunt Kat, because that’s what I am. My niece gave birth to the most darling baby on the planet and after chatting all things baby for the past 48 hours, it has occurred to me that I have some really amazing baby advice to give (if I do say so myself). On behalf of Sam’s Club® I have put together my list of 5 new mom survival kit necessities!
1. Learn The Five S’s
Swaddle blankets, ssshing noises, sucky things, side position, and swinging. I read The Happiest Baby on the Block back when my kids were tiny and I swear by that book. In fact my go-to baby shower gift is always a basket with the necessary items to make the Five S’s happen (along with a copy of the book).
2. Set Up Stations
Since babies have a limited attention span, I like to set up a number of stations I know I can count on for 10-20 minute increments at a time. If you can collect about 4-5 items such as an activity mat for tummy time, a swing, a bumbo chair, a Bounce-a-roo, etc.. and rotate your baby to each item every 15 minutes, they will have managed up to an hour of activity time! Follow up with a feeding and a nap and you’re all set!
3. Buy All The Huggies
Who knew these little stinkers would require so many diaper changes? I always bought diapers in bulk. Believe me, that’s not something you want to run out of!
My babies had eczema so it was always important to me to make sure their skin stayed hydrated and moisturized, but all babies have sensitive skin that reacts to the different elements we expose them too. Find the perfect moisturizer that works for your baby and stock up!
5. Diaper Rash Cream is Your Friend
I am so scarred by a major diaper rash my first baby got that I lather baby bottoms with Desitin at the first sign of redness. I recommend keeping a tube at every changing location in the house as well as the diaper changing bag and don’t be shy with it. Imagine how uncomfortable a little redness must feel, you need to squash that right away!
