Summer is the season of babies!! I have already been invited to three baby showers, and it is only July! Having two children myself, I know what the best gifts are to receive and which ones you should probably wait and give as a welcome baby gift. Yeah, those outfits are super cute, but these gifts are what mom really wants!
1.Gift Cards – This is perfect for those who wish to give bottles or pacifiers. Not all bottles are designed the same, and the new baby may not latch onto the bottle. Therefore they will not be able to be used. A gift card can be used for the bottles baby uses, or even essentials that mom needs.
2. Something For Mom – A lot of times, mom gets left out and we have to remember her too. Put some bubble bath, a candle, notebooks or even a coloring book in there for mom. Hey, she is doing a lot of hard work!
3. Laundry Detergent – Before the baby comes, we love to make sure everything is nice and cleaned. Then once the bundle of joy is here, we want to make sure only the best goes on our baby’s skin. I remember the first year I went through so much laundry detergent, I should have bought stock in it!
4. Noise Machines – If I had to do it all over again, I would have purchased a few noise machines the second I found out I was pregnant. These have a light sound that is similar to a fan being on. With my youngest, I had to keep the vacuum on a lot because it was all that soothed her.
5. Huggies Diapers – When my babies were little, changing their diapers was a special moment for us. They would coo and smile and my heart would just melt into a million pieces. Huggies was the only brand that we would use. Not only are they soft and gentle on baby’s new skin, but they work and hold up like a champ!
When it comes to purchasing diapers, Sam’s Club is the one stop shop! When my little ones were born, we had to actually go to the store and shop for our essentials, but now Sam’s Club has Club Pick-Up. With this, you can order online and when you go into the store your order will be ready for you. Simply Check in on the app, at the kiosk inside or pull up in our Drive Thru area (available in select clubs)! This is a lifesaver for new moms!
At Sam’s Club, they offer huge boxes of diapers, for a discounted price. I picked up a box of Size 1 diapers as well as a package of wipes for my best friend who will be delivering her daughter in early September. The savings are already amazing (as in one box contains enough diapers for a month) but when you purchase any two Huggies diapers, wipes or pants you will get $10 off! Purchase any three and you will get $18 off! That is an amazing deal! Head over to your local Sam’s Club to sign up for these amazing services and discounts today!
