But tops in our books is a Baby Carrier. Carriers keep our hands free to handle the daily household tasks. Baby is content being cuddled by mama and can even nurse in the carrier. We were treated to a baby wearing demo by Katie, who showed us a variety of wraps, slings, vests and coats that make life easier for moms. Definitely an essential!
Thanks to all the moms who joined us at the Every Little Step Baby Basics program in partnership with Walmart Canada to talk about Baby Essentials. Walmart Canada makes life easier for parents by making online shopping a breeze with free shipping on any purchase and by carrying a wide variety of products for babies, toddlers and beyond. Thanks to Pampers, Baby Cargo and Tommee Tippee North America for providing additional gifts and prizes for moms to take home.
