One of the most amazing things that can happen in your life is becoming a parent. Whether it’s by giving birth or adoption, it is a huge life-changing event. It can also be overwhelming, tiring and confusing. What do you buy? What do you need? Are there things you should have that are a must and are there some that you just don’t need at all? I remember how overwhelming making up my registry was and how much I could have used some help. The entire process was overwhelming as a new mom-to-be. Things have changed so much now.
Babies”R”Us has made the registry process easier and more convenient to get some one-on-one help from an in-store Baby Registry Expert. You can reserve a personal appointment time and they can provide helpful guidance for soon-to-be-moms. When you register with Babies”R”Us, you’ll receive a free gift which may include samples and coupons to help give you and your baby, a happy, healthy start. Not to mention you can now download their app through iTunes or Google Play, to conveniently create and update your registry no matter where you are. These features would have made my registry experience much easier and less time-consuming! Boy how things have changed!
Did you know that the number one thing left off most registries are everyday essentials like diapers and wipes? I mean you will be using these items several times a day when the baby comes home but we all tend to overlook it when making up our registry. When your baby is going to have upward of 10,000 diaper changes in their lifetime, adding diapers to your registry is always a smart idea.
I know that I appreciated the gift my mother made for me when I was pregnant with Oliver. She made me a bassinet entirely from Huggies Little Snugglers diapers in size Newborn It was the cutest thing ever and I only wish that I had a picture of it to show you. I loved that the preemie and newborn diapers have the umbilical cord cut-out and that they were soft on baby’s skin. Toby being born 5 weeks early caught me off-guard and I am glad that when we spent the 4 days in the NICU they had Huggies preemie diapers available for me to use because I wasn’t entirely ready for his arrival and didn’t have diapers or wipes at home. Just like skin-to-skin contact is important for our new little ones so is the diaper we choose to help protect their delicate skin. As a Huggies mom for many years, I have always trusted these diapers. Not to mention, I told you in a previous post that Oliver became highly allergic to all the other baby wipes we tried except for the Natural Care Wipes from Huggies. I won’t use anything else on their sensitive skin.
Babies cost money but the great news is that you can find great savings at Babies”R”Us during their BabyFest promotion that runs September 15-21st.Jumbo packs of Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers and Natural Care Wipes are 40% off!
