5 Parenting Products From Walmart That Will Make Life Easier

5 Parenting Products From Walmart That Will Make Life Easier

When they say children do not arrive with instructions, they aren't exaggerating. The arrival of a newborn can cause a whirlwind of questions, but being prepared with the right supplies can make the adjustment to parenthood much less traumatic.

Whether they are as essential as just-right-baby wipes or as sophisticated as an intelligent swing that can do everything but change a diaper, these products will undoubtedly help make your transition into parenthood a whole lot easier.

We've compiled a list of 5 must-have items for any new parent, all of which can be found at Walmart.

1. A Silky Swaddle Set


For only $45, Walmart sells a three-pack of Aden + Anais Silky Soft Swaddle Blankets.

These lightweight, breathable blankets from Aden + Anais come in many different colors and patterns, and they can be used for much more than just wrapping a baby in a burrito. You can use them as a light blanket in the summer, a portable changing pad, a burp cloth, and a nursing cover that allows your baby to breathe while protecting your modesty.

They are also helpful as a pretty scarf to hide spit-up and pureed prune smears when you're in a pinch. And the more you wash them, the better they get because of the increased softness.

2. A Changing Pad With Sloping Sides


For only $19.88, you can purchase the Summer 2-Sided Changing Pad from Walmart.

It's almost guaranteed that as soon as you pull up your sleeves to change your baby's diaper, the kid will get severe wiggles. Your child's safety and sanity require a changing pad with angled sides.

This changing pad has high, curved sides, a non-skid bottom, and a safety strap so your baby can stay put while you fumble for the diaper cream. When things get messy, we appreciate that the vinyl exterior can be cleaned quickly and easily (and they always do).

3. A Snot Sucker


Sucking snot from your newborn's nose may sound revolting, but once you adjust to functioning on only three hours of sleep per night, you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish.

The NoseFrida is more convenient and comfortable for infants than using a bulb aspirator to remove boogers due to its ingenious design, which prevents the snot from actually going in the mouth. The first time your child puts a pea or crayon up their nose, this item will come in handy, as I can attest as a mom who knows.  Find the Nasal Aspirator, FridaBaby NoseFrida, at Walmart for only $15.24.

4. Baby Wipes


You can use baby wipes for just about anything, and that's why they're so convenient. The uses of a high-quality baby wipe extend far beyond changing diapers. They wipe everything from sticky counters to grimy hands, snotty noses, and untidy faces.

Clean up without worrying about irritation with these fragrance-free, water-based wipes from Parent's Choice. Infants, with their tender skin, significantly benefit from that. This flip-top container is excellent because it keeps them from drying out in between uses.

For only $18.48 at Walmart, you can purchase 1200 of the Parent's Choice Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes.

5. A Burp Cloth


A spit-up and fashion sense don't usually go together, but there's always a first time for everything. The best way to hide the spit-up on your shoulder is to do so while still looking stylish. Hudson Baby's absorbent burp cloths are available in various adorable and functional patterns, making cleanups a little less chore.

Walmart offers a four-pack of the Hudson baby flannel burp cloths for $9.13.
