Mommy Moments- remembering being a first time mom

Sunday, August 11, 2013

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of HUGGIES. All opinions are 100% mine.

My first few weeks at home with my son are a little hazy for me. Maybe because that was almost 9 years ago, or it could have something to do with the fact that I was only 20 years old at the time. I was only a baby myself! Either way, I learned quickly that if I wanted to get anything done and still be a mom, I need to write it down or else I'd forget it immediately. 

One of the mommy moments I do remember was one of my first trips to the grocery store all by myself with Ayden, who was only about a week and a half old at the time. I was feeling confident and wanted to do this whole mom thing on my own. I had my diaper bag packed, my grocery list in my purse, Ayden buckled into his carseat, and I was ready to go!

When I got to the store I got the carseat out and went to grab the diaper bag, only to realize I didn't have the diaper bag. When I left the house I must have set the bag down on the porch to lock the front door, and I must not have picked it back up while juggling Ayden in his huge carseat. I made the decision to proceed with shopping anyway, since I was already there. I figured it would be fine as long as I shopped and went straight home afterwards. I mean, I had just changed Ayden before leaving the house, so it's not like I'd actually need a diaper or anything, right?

Oh how wrong I was.

As soon as I made my way down the first aisle, we had the biggest diaper blow out I've ever encountered. I noticed the situation was getting bad right away, so I panicked and ditched the cart. I grabbed the carseat and hauled some serious butt out of the store and back to the car. By the time I had the carseat back in it's base, Ayden was screaming and wanted to be changed. I raced home (as best as one "races" with a newborn in the car- I was probably going about 15 in reality). When I pulled into the driveway I spotted the diaper bag sitting right next to the front door, exactly where I imagined I'd left it.

After that day, I stuck a sticky note to the cupholder in my car that said "Diaper Bag!"

I can't tell you how many times it saved me!

Check out the HUGGIES® Mommy Center on for help on navigating those first few months as a new mom.  They have all of the baby essentials you need available at Walmart, like HUGGIES® Little Snugglers Diapers, HUGGIES® Pure & Natural Diapers, and HUGGIES NATURAL CARE® Wipes. 

They sure would have come in handy with my diaper experience mentioned above!

  1. I'm so glad I've never been in that situation but I have several friends who have! One of them had to buy diapers, wipes, and a new outfit from the store they were at lol.
    I'm glad I read this post! I didn't know Walmart had a Huggies Mommy Center. I went to the site and found coupons for $3 off ANY huggies diapers. We've been stocking up on diapers for the new baby so those coupons are fantastic!


I love hearing what you have to say! Comments make me happy.
