I’ve been a mom for more than 18 years now, and we just started over with baby #4 who is 7 months old. As a mom of 4, I have never understood the long list of expensive nursery items that babies never use. There really isn’t a lot you need when it comes to your baby’s nursery. These are my top FOUR (yes only 4) essentials you need for the baby nursery.
Baby Nursery Essentials
Crib – a good crib and mattress that follow current guidelines to keep your baby safe.
Cotton crib sheets – I stick with 100% cotton for bedding for my babies. My favorite brand is Parent’s Choice at Walmart. They wash up so soft. Not only are they so affordable, but they have nine coordinating colors throughout their Mix and Match collection, so parents can mix and match for a customized look.
Waterproof pads – I put one of these under the crib sheet so just in case we have a leaky or blowout diaper or even a drooling baby, it won’t stain the mattress. I love that I can get these in a 3-pack from Parent’s Choice at Walmart.
Blankets – I never put blankets in my baby’s crib when she’s sleeping or unsupervised. However, I do use baby blankets for so many more things. Parent’s Choice has several different options from flannel receiving blankets to fleece blankets and even knit blankets (my fave!), and they are just so adorable.
I keep at least two baby blankets in the car for use in the stroller, for nursing in public, or when the weather gets unexpectedly chilly or rainy. I also keep them all over the house for laying the baby down for tummy time or play time, or even if she’s a little messy from a runny nose or just finished eating. I also like to keep them near when it’s time to get baby to sleep when I rock her or nurse her to sleep just to keep her nice and cozy in my arms.
Parent’s Choice at Walmart
You can find all of these at affordable prices right at Walmart! This is why I love Parent’s Choice at Walmart as most of their items are less than $13. They have more than 275 products with everything you need from bedding to baby wipes and more. You can get great quality at just a fraction of the price, and often their products are as good if not better than the top brands.
Parent’s Choice Mix and Match Bedding has been my choice for baby bedding since my oldest was a baby, almost 20 years ago! They have super cute trendy patterns. I love how you can really mix and match the bedding because it all just coordinates throughout the collection.
My favorite is always the blankets. Parent’s Choice has these wonderful high quality fleece blankets made with minky fabric that you often find in high end boutique baby stores for just a fraction of the price. Now that it’s cold, we are using the fleece blanket in the stroller more often.
Ivy has just gotten really good at sitting up, so she loves to play peekaboo with me and her blankets.
Parent’s Choice has affordable essentials we all need for those early years. They work better and save you a lot of money you can be using elsewhere. Plus, you can pick them up in the store or order online and have them delivered right to your door for free.
