The Best Baby Products for Expecting Parents

Having a baby can be stressful, but having the right supplies when they arrive can help put your mind at ease.  The variety of baby items available can seem overwhelming for even seasoned parents. So, to make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite baby products.  We have everything from feeding supplies and diapers to post-partum supplies for moms.  Prepare for your little one’s arrival by picking up some (or all) of these essentials!

For Easy Breastfeeding

Unimom Zomee Z2 Smart Double Electric Breast Pump With Tote Kit

Up to 80% of new mothers try breastfeeding, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While breastfeeding offers various benefits, many mothers find it both painful and stressful. 

This breast pump manufactured by Unimom has three modes and 19 different suction levels. It’s lightweight, powered by a lithium battery, and can be used as a single or double breast pump. The package includes a carrying tote, cooler, and milk bottles so you can pump whenever it’s most convenient.

For Hassle-Free Cleanup

McKesson Baby Wipes with Aloe and Vitamin E

Babies make lots of messes, so it’s crucial you have some all-purpose baby wipes on hand. These washcloth-like wipes from McKesson are one of our best-selling products. They’re made of a strong but soft material that makes clean-up easy. In addition to their absorbency, these wipes contain Aloe and vitamin E, making them safe for use on an infant’s sensitive skin. Each package contains 72 wipes.

For Keeping Your Baby Clean and Dry

Cuties Complete Care Baby Diapers

The average newborn uses between 8 and 12 diapers a day. Unfortunately, all of those changes increase the risk of skin irritation. You can reduce the risk of diaper rash and other skin problems by stocking up on hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested products. 

These diapers from Cuties are specifically formulated to keep your baby clean and dry all day and night. They’re free of allergens, including latex, and don’t contain fragrances or bleach. Parents can choose from five adorable designs in sizes newborn to 7, which fit toddlers who weigh up to 41 pounds. 

For Babies Sensitive to Lactose

Similac Sensitive OptiGRO Infant Formula, 13 oz.

Did you know that between 3 and 5% of newborns experience lactose intolerance? If breast milk or milk-based formulas give your baby gas or diarrhea, they might benefit from a special formula like Similac Sensitive OptiGRO.

OptiGRO provides 20 calories per fluid ounce and provides an alternative to traditional milk-based formulas. The product is easy to mix and doesn’t contain any artificial flavors.

For Babies Who Need Medication

McKesson Infant Nebulizer Kit

If your baby develops a cold or flu and they have difficulty breathing, their pediatrician might prescribe treatment with a nebulizer. A nebulizer is a medical device that converts liquid medication into a mist, making it easier to inhale. 

This infant nebulizer kit from McKesson features a medication port, seven feet of oxygen tubing, and a pacifier attachment. The pacifier provides a calming effect and the mask is adjustable, ensuring a painless and stress-free treatment experience.

For Parents Who Want to Sleep Through the Night

Huggies Snug & Dry Baby Diapers with Tabs, Heavy Absorbency

Tired of getting up at all hours of the night to change a fussy baby? The right diapers can make all the difference. These snug & dry diapers from Huggies absorb wetness quickly, offering up to 12 hours of leak protection. The soft and flexible material hugs your baby’s body, ensuring their skin remains dry. There’s even a wetness indicator that alerts you when the diaper’s full.
