Bringing home your new little one is exciting! You’ve spent months setting up the nursery, safety proofing your home, and stocking up on everything you need for the newest member of your family.
But what about a month later when you’ve got a baby on your hip and only two hands? These five amazing services will help you transition into motherhood with ease and convenience.
It’s truly unbelievable how many diapers that little one of yours is going to need. Never run out (or fret about running out) by subscribing to a diaper delivery service. Here are two companies to check out:
Parasol has ultra soft diapers with super cute patterns and wipes available for subscription.
The Honest Company offers an eco-friendly option (with adorable patterns as well). Additionally, you can also bundle your subscription with other essentials like wipes, formula, bath products, and vitamins and supplements.
Amazon has a solution for everything these days and is essential to motherhood! Beyond the ease of ordering things online and receiving them in two days or less, they’ve got lots of ways to make your life easier.
Amazon Family offers Amazon Prime members exclusive family-oriented offers, coupons, and age-based recommendations. PLUS you get 20% off diaper subscriptions!
Speaking of Amazon Prime, if you’re not a member you should sign-up now. Amazon Prime gets you free two day delivery for most products, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows, restaurant delivery options, free streaming music, unlimited photo storage, a Kindle owner’s lending library, and so much more.
Amazon’s Dash buttons offer one-click ordering of must-have household items like peanut butter, laundry detergent, and toilet paper. Depending on where you live, Amazon Now can deliver many of those items to you in two hours—with free delivery.
Need something within the hour? Amazon Prime Now is at your service.
Amazon Echo should also get an honorable mention. This voice activated assistant can look up information, order a pizza, order from Amazon, play music on demand and more—all hands free.

Air filters are probably not on your baby shower gift wish list, right? But you definitely want clean air filters in your house when you have a newborn. Your baby is going from the purity of the womb habitat to the open environment of your home, and you’ll want the air free from allergens, dust, exhaust and other harmful particles.
Air filters should be changed at least every three months, but seriously, who remembers to do that? Get a Canopy subscription—they send fresh filters to your home on schedule. You’ve got enough to stress about, let’s not add air quality to the list!
Meal planning and grocery shopping is extremely time consuming. Skip both of those by joining a meal kit program. Get recipes and all the ingredients you need for the week shipped to your door. All you have to do is the cooking. There are a lot of services out there, but here are some of the most popular ones: Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, and Plated, are just a few to check out.
And let’s face it, you’re not going out to eat as much as you used to. When you’re craving food from your local favorite restaurants but baby is not going anywhere, get UberEats. With this no fuss app, ordering is a snap and minutes later, your favorite tacos and smoothies are at your door.
At-home moms will need some entertainment for the hours of rocking baby coming their way. It’s all about on-demand, because baby decides when you can catch up on your favorite shows. Check out Hulu and Netflix. They both have overlapping offerings so if you are on a budget, be sure to look up your favorite shows to see the best streaming service for you.
Be a savvy Mom with these amazing and helpful services.
