All opinions are entirely my own. #SposieMoments Are you an expectant parent shopping for new baby products? If so, you are in the right place. When you register at the baby store, the list of items goes on and on, but so many of them are unnecessary! On Theresa’s Reviews, I’m sharing the inside scoop on the 5 must-have products for new moms. As a parent of two children in elementary school and a lifestyle expert, I’ve tried out many products over the years and am sharing my all-time favorites. First, check out my video demo featuring Sposie Diaper pads, which I’m going to share more about today!

5 Must-Have Products for New Moms

Two main tips can help you in choosing baby products as a new mom. First, when you are expecting a baby, focus on a few key purchases. Second, after you buy the essentials, make sure to choose a few luxury items.

Diaper Bags

Investing in a good diaper bag matters because it becomes your daily accessory. Choose one with enough space for diapers, wipes, a spare set of clothes, small toys, and more. The best diaper bags offer organizational pockets to help separate your items. In addition to the roominess and design of the bag, consider a color that will match your clothes throughout the seasons. With a neutral colored bag or a designer bag, you can instantly feel more put together, even on your busiest new-mom day. 5 Must-Have Products for New Moms Featuring Sposie Diaper Booster Pads - Theresa's Reviews #SposieMoments

Sposie Diaper Pads

Next, check out the Sposie diaper pads that are revolutionizing baby care! As a new parent, you need to get sleep. With Sposie diaper pads, waking up at 4 am to change the sheets is a thing of the past. You get two times the coverage with up to 8 ounces more absorption. My video demo above even shows this in action! Using a diaper pad is also a good idea for long travels. Years ago when my children were babies, we were often taking long road trips to visit family members for holidays and special occasions. When it isn’t convenient to change a diaper on the road, simply place a Sposie booster pad into the child’s diaper. This is more effective than diaper doubling, or placing two diapers on top of each other.

Sposie Diaper booster pads can turn any diaper into an overnight diaper. While wicking away moisture from your baby’s skin, they create a stay-dry barrier to reduce diaper rash and irritation. They are fragrance, latex, chlorine free, and made in the USA. Available at Walmart, Target, and Amazon, they work for both girls and boys, and can fit with all brands, sizes, and types of diapers.

Next, a soft baby carrier makes daily life easier when you are a new parent. From wraps to slings and structured carriers, the choices vary greatly. You can also find a range of prices. Having tried out many, I would recommend a structured carrier because they are much easier to put on when you are on the go. Buy a carrier with soft, organic fabric because you want your child to be comfortable there.

Baby Swing

One of the most useful items is a baby swing. You can find these in a range of prices, and it’s really a matter of preference. While some high-tech swings offer different movement features and connect to Bluetooth, the more basic styles can be just as useful.


Make sure to get a sturdy stroller that will last. With a travel system, an infant car seat can fit into the stroller. Years later, your child can continue to use the stroller for trips to the zoo and amusement parks. While a jogging stroller is a luxury item that can get you outside and exercising more often, a regular travel system stroller is the most practical for family outings and would still work well for walks around the neighborhood.
