How I am Preparing for the Baby and Breastfeeding with Walmart!

This post is sponsored by Walmart and RewardStyle.

Feeling overwhelmed is an understatement... Lately I have been feeling really overwhelmed to prepare and make sure I have all the things that I need before our baby boy comes. I feel like the days and weeks are flying by and I am losing time. Grace is something that I have asked God for lately. I decided to focus and write down a list of things that he would probably need right away and a list of things that can wait for later. Creating this checklist put my mind more at ease and also our checking accounts. Side note: I was hit hard with the realization that baby items are expensive! Yicks! 

As I have shared with you guys since moving back to our hometown we cut our family income in half. My husband is our sole full time provider at the moment. I have been tracking our finances and making sure we are making responsible purchases. 

When I was asked to team up with Walmart for this post I was so eager to say yes because Walmart is a retail destination for affordable products and that is what our family needs. I was also curious to check out Walmart's baby products. A shopping tip: scrolling online look for items in their roll back special prices! You can find some great brands for everyday lower prices. 

Since I live in a small town our aisles are small and products are limited in terms of product lines and diverse brand availablity however I really found a lot of great brands online! Plus I actually enjoy more shopping online and do about 80% of my retail shopping online. 

As a new mom to be my biggest concern and desire is to breast feed our baby. I am so looking forward to that bonding time with him and nurturing him naturally to the best of my ability. I have been doing a lot of research of breast feeding products and I was so surprised that Walmart carried all these amazing brands! At the moment I am in between getting the Medela breast pump or the Lanisol pump. If you guys have any advice or recommendations please share!

August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month and Walmart is supporting this event with deals on breastfeeding and feeding items. Some items that I know I need right away are nursing pads and nipple cream

As far as feeding items I am using Dr Brown's bottles and going to try those out first (wish us luck that he likes it). I am also thinking of taking a breast feeding class before the baby comes to educate myself and feel prepared. 

There are so many baby products to chose from out there and I am thankful for destinations like Walmart to make it affordable and a one stop shop for parents. Check out below the items in my cart! Please share your tips or recommendations on items featured and items you recommend! Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post!
