The saying “it takes a village to raise a child” is so true! We all need an extra pair of hands and lots of caffeine to keep things running in our household as new parents! I’m going to share with you what has helped me as a new Mama bear.

Being a Mom has always been my biggest dream and I get to live that dream everyday with our little miracle. But, it’s not always easy to get everything done in a day. Here are a few things that have helped me. 


One of my biggest tips is to take the help when offered. We all need an extra pair of hands to get things done around home or if you work from home. The newborn stage is tiresome to say the least. Ricardo and I had our moms come over every other day and we would both sleep after nursing little Benji. We both had a chance to rest while grandma bonded with baby. Once Benjamin was about a month old we were able to start a better routine as he was sleeping longer at night. Don’t worry new mama you will get to sleep again soon. 

What has also helped me tremendously is getting our house essentials, baby items, and groceries all delivered to our home. It’s one less thing to have to worry about and do. I enjoy staying home more often and this has truly helped us. I joined the Walmart + Membership! There are so many benefits to joining and my favorite are the unlimited deliveries straight to my home. ($35 minimum order, restrictions apply). The membership is $12.95/month or $98 for the year- and it pays for itself in just two deliveries a month (based on the $7.95 delivery fee)! You also enjoy member prices on fuel, and use the mobile scan & go feature in the Walmart app for streamlined in-store shopping!

I was really shocked at just how often we had to change diapers and you don’t want to run out last minute. It’s so nice that we can get them delivered as soon as the same day with the Walmart + Membership. Some of my must-haves in the morning is a cup of joe. I got my favorite coffee delivered. This one is my favorite because it’s a cold brew which eliminates extra steps to get the perfect iced coffee. I like to add a french vanilla creamer. Having our diapers delivered also takes the stress out of running out. 


Since I am breastfeeding I always look for food that will help keep my supply up and often make oatmeal smoothies in the morning to have with my breakfast. I didn’t have time to make a big breakfast but smoothies are fast and simple to make. As a new mom my priorities were taking care of my baby, eating, and sleeping. Everything else could wait, including house work. What helped you as a mom with a Newborn baby? Tell me below. 


Muchos besos,
