It’s no secret that babies need a lot of stuff. But, in addition to gear you only buy once, like a crib or a baby monitor, there’s a constant demand for diapers, wipes and other essentials.
Of course, with all of the things you have going on, it’s hard to stay on top of everything. So it’s completely understandable to suddenly realize you’re running low on, say, diapers. Oops.
In general, it’s a good idea to keep at least 100 diapers on hand at home, Dr. Gina Posner, board certified pediatrician at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California, tells Yahoo Life. “When they’re newborns, they go through 10+ diapers a day,” she says.
Of course, trekking to the store with a baby in tow can be tough under any circumstances—and especially these days. That’s why we’re so excited about Walmart’s new service called Walmart+. It offers same-day delivery ($35 minimum) on baby supplies, groceries and more. Prices are the same as those in the store and online. For a low monthly fee, you can get as many deliveries as you want. Unlimited!
Then, when you need something stat, don’t stress—help is just a click away.
Along with Dr. Posner, we put together a list of baby essentials that are important to keep around. Let Walmart+ bring these to your doorstep, and see how much easier it is to juggle family life when you have the right things on hand.
Pampers has been a trusted name in diapers for decades. Swaddlers, which come in sizes ranging from newborn to six, are incredibly soft and include five layers of protection. They also have a color-changing wetness indicator and cute Sesame Street designs.

“With wipes, a few packs is probably enough,” Posner says. (But, she says, in a worst-case scenario, you could always use water.) Huggies Natural Care Sensitive baby wipes are made with plant-based ingredients like aloe and vitamin E and 99 percent purified water to gently clean delicate skin.

A laundry detergent that’s free of dyes and scents is crucial. “Babies typically have more sensitive skin, and standard detergents can irritate them,” Posner says. Tide Free & Gentle is hypoallergenic, meaning it won’t bother your baby’s delicate skin, but it’s tough on dirt and grime too.

Make sure you have plenty of outfit changes on hand. “Babies love spitting up and they sometimes have poop or pee explosions,” Posner says, noting that some babies can go through several outfit changes a day. These long-sleeve cotton bodysuits are super soft and come in go-with-everything colors and patterns. The overlapping shoulders make them easy to get on and off too.

Unfortunately, babies get fevers more than we’d like. That’s why Posner recommends having infant acetaminophen around just in case. (Check with your doctor about dosage information first.) This liquid Tylenol is designed to reduce fever and provide temporary relief from minor aches and pains.

If your baby is a little older and teething, a teether can help relieve pain and keep those little gums busy. “I always like the ones that you can put in the fridge so they get cool,” Posner says. These adorable teething keys from Nuby offer up three different options for your baby to nosh on.

Posner lists diaper rash cream as an important tool to have around. Boudreaux's Butt Paste has a cult following thanks to its magical formulation, which is free of dyes, fragrance, parabens and preservatives.

A baby first aid kit should have at least the basics—a thermometer and disposable bandages—Posner says. This kit packs those, plus alcohol wipes, a toothbrush, a medicine syringe and a nasal aspirator, into a convenient clutch.
