Congratulations! You’ve traded in your morning lattés for baby formula and you couldn’t be happier. But, finding the best places to shop for baby clothes, supplies, and gadgets can be intimidating for someone who only steps foot in Banana Republic, The Limited, or JCrew.
Carter’s is a great option for affordable and adorable infant, baby, and young child clothes. Boy, girl, or gender-neutral Carter’s offers a variety to figure out what works for your baby and of course what you love dressing your new beautiful baby with!
Target is another stop on the shopping trip as it offers probably the most dynamic place for your new bundle of joy. From strollers, to formula, to diaper rash cream, Target provides new mommies with an all-in-one store.
The other intimidating piece of becoming a new mom is figuring out what baby gadgets will help you and of course the baby.
- Video and audio monitor. Most new mothers worry about their newborn baby every second of the day. A way to ease that worry is by investing in a video and audio baby monitor. Never miss a moment!
- Compact stroller. There are so many different brands and styles of strollers, be mindful that along with your new baby, you’re also responsible for lugging the stroller with you. Choose something that is safe, but manageable.
- A comfortable changing pad. Newborns have a routine eat, poop, and sleep. Invest in a changing pad with plenty of cushion to keep your baby comfortable no matter where you are.
- Baby wipes. I know what you’re thinking…OBVIOUSLY! Baby wipes will be your best friend beyond just changing a diaper. Wipes will be your right hand in picking up spills on the road, wiping the chocolate all of the baby’s face, or wiping their sticky fingers. More wipes please!
Although the transition from CEO to new mommy will come with challenges, hopefully these helpful hints will make it that much more easier. From great stores like Carter’s to must have gadgets always be on the look out for great deals!
