I am the type of person who studies everything. I am a bit of a perfectionist and I want to do things right the first time. When I got pregnant, I picked up every parenting book I could find to prepare myself for being a new mom. I chuckle at this now. Mom’s everywhere know that nothing can really prepare you for becoming a mom. As soon as the nurses wheeled me down to my car, life was not predictable. I entered Mom Life.
Life as a mom is unpredictable, it can be chaotic and messy… it’s wonderful!
The best piece of advice I could give to a new mom is to find your tribe and get help when you can.

From detergent to wipes to diapers, you want the best to keep your baby clean and dry and that can be found at Meijer.
Meijer has a wonderful baby care department where you can find everything you need in one place. I loved that I could do my grocery shopping and run over to the baby care aisle to pick up some diapers and wipes. If you’re looking for a leak and mess-free day, dress your baby in Pampers. When our kids were newborns we loved Pampers Swaddlers. Swaddlers has a color changing wetness indicator on the front of the diaper that told us when our kids needed a diaper change. As a brand new mom, it was helpful to have that feature so I knew how frequently to change my little ones. Pampers Swaddlers, the #1 Choice of Hospitals, also features a unique Absorb Away Liner that pulls wetness and messes away from baby’s skin to help keep your baby comfortable.
When my kids got a little bit older we loved using Pampers Cruisers. Pampers Cruisers has unique Extra Absorb Channels to help distribute wetness evenly, so it stays drier and doesn’t sag like ordinary diapers. They are perfect once your baby starts moving around. Cruisers also feature a unique 3-way fit that adapts at the waist, legs, and bottom. So, your baby has the freedom to play all day. My kids would have fewer leaks and that means less clean-up for mom.
When life does get messy, Dreft is the #1 choice of pediatricians and has been trusted by moms for over 80 years. I fell in love with the scent of Dreft even before my kids were born. I stocked up on a few bottles and I am so grateful that I did. My first born had extremely sensitive skin and we struggled to find bath products that would work for him without irritating him. Luckily Dreft’s hypoallergenic formula is designed to be tough on stains while still being gentle on baby’s skin. We used Dreft for years.
Meijer is a wonderful place to shop if you are a new mom. Check your local stores to see if they offer Curbside service. This is a fantastic service for new moms where you can order your groceries and baby care needs from your computer and schedule a time to pick it up. Your little ones can be napping in their car seats while you pick up the groceries. I have leaned on this service a few times myself and LOVE it!
