Amazon was a lifesaver for me when my babies were small! In those early days, I just couldn’t figure out how to get out of the door with two small kids without anyone crying. It was so nice (and easy) to have the necessities shipped right to my door. Right now, Amazon is running a great trial promotion.  When you sign-up for Amazon Mom, you get a 30-Day Free Trial – PLUS a $20 credit and an extra 20% off select Pampers diapers with Subscribe & Save.  There are such amazing savings to be had with that offer!!!  I used Amazon Mom on a regular basis when my son was born.  What a relief to get the diapers and wipes brought to my house before I got to the very last crumpled diaper. Amazon often offers ecoupons, too, so you don’t have to scrap the savings just because you’re shopping online.  In addition to the budget-friendly baby items, we also bought household items and toiletries on Amazon. These days, we use Amazon for everything from entertainment to snacks. We also get most of our gifts there!

Here are the some things that always helped me out, plus a few I would have enjoyed trying.

Cloth diapers seem to be a big hit with Savings in Seconds readers!  We used disposable diapers, though, and Swaddlers were our favorites for our newborns.  Either way, what a welcome gift!

Our baby swing got a lot of use!  We used this to keep the baby happy when we couldn’t safely hold her.  It was especially helpful when our daughter had RSV and needed to be upright for a long time.

A sweet friend of mine came to visit when my son was born, and she brought my daughter a simple care package.  My daughter was so thrilled to be remembered!  With your new baby, is there an older sibling who might be feeling a bit left out? Make a gift basket with some puzzles , coloring supplies, and a special treat.

You could always put that gift card toward a new camera. Think of all the memories that will be captured!

So, I’m curious.  What items do you think a new mom should have?
