New Mom Survival Kit

Parenthood can be overwhelming. So anything that can make things easier and more convenient is welcome to mothers, especially new moms. Whether you’re a first-time mom or not, the first few months at home with a newborn can be exhausting. That’s why preparing a New Mom Survival Kit can be helpful.

A New Mom Survival Kit contains products that a mom can use in the months immediately following birth to make life more convenient and comfortable. Our kit focuses on how to maintain a clean and healthy home environment for your growing family, plus some self-care items that are important for all moms. 

Baby Wipes

These pre-moistened disposable wipes are designed to make diaper changes easier and more convenient, but they can do so much more. We recommend stocking up and having a package of baby wipes, such as Nice ’N CLEAN® Baby Wipes, in every room of your house for easy access. They’re more versatile than you might think and can be used at least 40 other ways. Baby wipes are also on our New Mom Checklist of Must-Have Baby Essentials.


Disinfecting Wipes

Essential for killing bacteria and viruses, disinfecting wipes should be a staple at home at all times. They’re more convenient than sprays because you don’t need paper towels or sponges. Nice ’N CLEAN® Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9% of bacteria** and viruses*, including the COVID-19 virusɸ, within three minutes. Use our wipes to clean, deodorize, sanitize, and disinfect quickly and effectively so you can move onto more important things, like snuggling your baby.

Hand Wipes

Antibacterial hand wipes are great to have on hand just about everywhere -- in your diaper bag, purse, living room, bedroom, home office -- basically anywhere you may need to clean your hands but can’t conveniently get to soap and water. Believe it or not, that can happen even if you’re at home with a kitchen and bathroom nearby. Nice ’N CLEAN® Sani-Hands® Antibacterial Hand Wipes come in portable 20-count packages that are easy to store and take everywhere.


Flushable Wipes

Your nether regions will be tender and sore in the months following delivery so make it a more soothing experience by using gentle and soft moist toilet tissue after using the restroom. In addition to being more comfortable, flushable wipes are better than dry toilet paper alone when it comes to wiping off bacteria. Nice ’N CLEAN® Flushable Wipes are soft and durable plant-based wipes infused with aloe and vitamin E for an effective and refreshing wiping experience.

Face Cleansing Wipes

Facial wipes are great if you don’t have the time or energy to wash your face, or just need a refreshing boost throughout the day. These are also awesome if you don’t have time to jump in the shower but need to freshen up. Keep a pack in your bathroom and living room as well as in your diaper bag or purse so you always have easy access to one when you need a self-care pick-me-up.

Dry Shampoo

This product can help you go a few extra days without washing your hair. If you’re too busy or too exhausted to tackle a shampoo and conditioner job while showering (or don’t have time to shower at all), this product can help manage greasy hair and freshen up your look. 

Epsom Salt

Taking epsom salt baths can be relaxing and soothing for new moms (and everyone else). Dissolving the salts in warm water and soaking in it can help soothe sore muscles, aches and pains, and help reduce stress and anxiety. 

Disposable Pads 

Postpartum disposable pads are an essential item to have in the weeks after giving birth due to postpartum bleeding (called lochia). It’s important to have leak-proof protection that is comfortable while you’re busy caring for your newborn. Lochia is typically heavy for the first ten days after delivery and can last up to six weeks. 


HEPA Filters

Having HEPA filters can improve the quality of air and minimize dust and other allergens inside your home. Allergic reactions to microscopic particles in the air include sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. They may also include skin reactions such as eczema.
