Our Top Five Newborn Essentials Every Mom Needs

Every new mom needs advice in order to decide what they need—we’re here to help!

When you have a new baby on the way, there are so many choices to make. Do you breastfeed or bottle feed? Use disposable diapers or cloth diapers? Are you going to babywear or be more of a stroller mom? It can be overwhelming.

So when you start to add in which baby monitor you should get, which breast pump would be the best fit for you, and which baby carrier you want most—the choices can be staggering.

That’s where Best Buy’s VIVA Baby Samplers Club comes to the rescue. The VIVA Baby Samplers Cub is a great opportunity for Canadian moms of children under two years to test and review baby products. The VIVA Baby Samplers Club will let you test and keep the products for FREE – all you have to do is tell them and other Canadian moms what you think of the product.

VIVA Baby from Best Buy has a huge range of baby essentials—car seats to baby monitors, furniture to strollers, carriers to toys—everything you need to get started with your brand new bundle of joy!

Here at BabyPost.com, we’ve got a few favourites that we think no mom can live without.

A reliable baby monitor

For your own piece of mind, you are going to want to invest in a reliable baby monitor. We love the Angelcare Video Baby Monitor. You can actually keep an eye on your baby with the video function and sooth baby from a distance with 2-way communication. 

A baby carrier that suits you

Depending on how you are planning to babywear (if at all), there are so many different options and VIVA Baby has tons to choose from. The Hotslings Adjustable Pouch Carrier is easy to slip on and off making it great for nursing moms. It supports up to 35 pounds and comes in some amazingly cute patterns.

A stroller

This one may seem like a no-brainer, of course you need a stroller. The issue comes around when you start thinking about all the options! Be sure to get a stroller that suits your needs as a mom. The Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle is perfect for the city mom that likes to go on an adventure once and a while. It’s super lightweight and features a five-point safety harness for baby’s safety, and a sizeable basket to carry all your extras. 

Everyday essentials

You might not think about these things at first, but soon enough wipes and diapers will be constantly on your mind. And who would have known that Best Buy would be a great place to get them from? Aleva Naturals Bamboo Wipes are made of eco-friendly, unbleached bamboo and are perfect for babies sensitive skin.

A crib

Once baby outgrows their bassinet or you stop co-sleeping, you will need to find them their very own crib. We think the versatility of a convertible crib, like this one from Zuntano, is a great idea. The bed goes from crib, to toddler bed, to a day bed. Easy to assemble and made with quality wood in a safe, non-toxic finish.

This is just a small sampling of some of the great baby products you can find online at www.bestbuy.ca. Also, it’s good to remember, anything you buy online at Best Buy can be returned in store—we love how simple this makes our lives!
