***I have been compensated by AVEENO and JOHNSON’S® Baby for this post about Mommy Must Haves; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.***
I remember my early mom days too well. Leaving the house with a newborn and a toddler took no less than two hours prep and my entire stockpile of sanity, only to be oft foiled by a massive diaper blow-out leaving Mommy fantasizing about a four-hour nap–and maybe the kids would even rest too! Fun times! I have come a long way since then and learned so very much about using smart hacks to take control of the chaos. The most genius fix you’ll find, mama? Stashing up your bag with these Mommy Must Haves so you are all set for whatever your kid-filled days holds!
I grew up on Johnson & Johnson products–my mom used this brand for everything! I remember the baby oil and the lotion as staples of my childhood. At the time, I didn’t understand her dedication to the brand. Now I totally get it. JOHNSON’S® is your genius parenting fix–if you ever hope to leave the house that is…
Snag Mommy Must Haves at Walmart:
I love me a good Walmart trip, but this winter weather and sickness streak have made leaving the house a tad trickier than usual. I’m now an online ordering fan more than ever. And with Walmart.com making ordering Johnson and Johnson products so very easy, how can you go wrong? With free in-store pickup and the fantastic 2-Day shipping option, online ordering is a budget-friendly solution for those times you can’t make it out to shop. An easy-peasy win!
