Getting stressed over going shopping for a new baby is the last thing any Mom to be needs to worry about. So, we decided to put together a comprehensive list of the top Must Have Baby Items that a baby and new Mom REALLY need.
Something that is easy for new Moms to overlook is their own nutrition because, let’s face it, when you have a new baby, who has time to worry about eating and staying hydrated.
That’s why it’s so important to include a few snacks and beverages in your gift basket you are giving as a gift.
By giving a basket full of goodies just for her, she will be able to quickly grab a bite to eat or something like these new beverages from HALFDAY to drink. And she will feel good about drinking one of these because they are gluten-free, paleo, non-carbonated, vegan and only contain 35-40 calories and four to six grams of net carbs.

Learn to Love Lists
As a new mom, you’ll surely think that you lost your brain. Many refer to this as “mom brain”, and I firmly believe this is a true thing. Grab yourself a new small journal that fits nicely into your purse and/or baby bag so that you can jot down lists of things you need to buy or do. You won’t remember it all now that you have a little baby to tend to.
Nap with Baby
If you can nap with your baby during their nap time, then do it! You will be physically and emotionally exhausted trying to raise a new little baby while keeping up with the household chores, and other duties that you have as a new mom. Don’t give yourself a hard time or try to be an overachiever, it’s acceptable to take adult naps when you have a new baby in the home.
Buy in Bulk
Just like the new mom who runs out of wipes in the middle of a diaper change, buying wholesale is the best tip I have for new moms. I love that you can find valuable deals for high-quality baby wipes at Sam’s Club or Costco.
It’s so important to keep a stock of diapers, wipes and baby food on hand when you’re a new mom so that you don’t have to buckle baby up into the car seat for a trip to the store.
