When it comes to being a new mom, there’s a lot to think about. It might be overwhelming! But based on my experience raising two kids, it all comes down to some basic needs. If you can stay stocked up on these things new moms need you’ll be pretty good to go.
Add in getting as much rest as you can, leaning on the support of your family and friends, and loving that new little bundle of joy to the mix and you’ve got this mom!

5 THINGS NEW MOMS NEED
There are so many things you can put on a baby registry before your new baby is born. But after the baby is born there are things that you’ll come to find are must-haves in your life. They are the things new moms need and never want to run out of!
This one probably seems obvious and to be honest, most of these things will be pretty obvious. But once that new mom brain sets in, sometimes the most obvious things slip your mind.
Staying stocked up on diapers is so important when it comes to having a new baby. I also learned that a good thing to do is have a box of diapers in the next size up stashed for that day when suddenly the current size doesn’t fit!
To go along with diapers, the baby wipes stash is so important. They’re good for so much more than just diaper changes! I always kept a pack of baby wipes in every single room and even in the car!
Now that the kids are older, I still keep them in the car! You don’t want to run out of wipes! They’re a mother’s best friend!
Diaper rash cream is something that slipped my mind at first. I was more worried about having enough diapers! But we’ve used diaper rash cream from the newborn days through the potty training days so it’s now definitely one thing I put on the list of things new moms need!
If you’re a formula feeding family or a combination feeding family like we were, you’ll always want to make sure you have plenty of formula on hand.
The powdered infant formula is great for this because you can keep a can in the cabinet as a backup. I kept one in a different cabinet than our regular supply, in case of emergencies!
The last thing you want to find is that you’ve run out of formula in the middle of the night!
BATH WASH, SHAMPOO & LOTION
While supplies for bath time might not be at the top of your list, you want it to be a time that goes smoothly. Running out of baby bath wash is not something that makes it go smoothly!
The same goes for shampoo!
I’ve learned how easy it is to use the last of the baby bath wash and forget to put it on the grocery list. Even now that the kids are older, this happens to me. I try to make sure I always have a backup bottle in the bathroom to open when we’re mid-bath! Then I add it to the list to restock!
