I’m a working mom with a 2-year-old in diapers and a second baby on the way. So not surprisingly, I’m constantly looking for ways to make my life easier.
That’s especially true when it comes to stocking up on essential baby products. The last thing I need to be dealing with is a desperate “We’re out of diapers!” situation or running all around town to find the brands I want at affordable prices.
And that’s where BJ’s Wholesale Club comes in.
BJ’s has a motto that comes as a wave of relief to busy moms like me: “You carry the baby, we’ll carry the rest.” In other words, we can focus on our main responsibility—to be the best moms we can be to our children—and rely on BJ’s to give us the products, prices, and convenience we need to make that happen.
I recently started an annual membership, courtesy of BJ’s, and here’s what I’ve already learned about how the store can make life easier for busy moms with babies.
4 Ways BJ’s Makes Life Easier for Busy Moms with Babies
1. Escape from the craziness of everyday life.
Let’s be real: Some days, when there’s baby food crusted in your hair and toys scattered all across your living room floor, you start to feel a little crazy.
Stepping into BJ’s felt like a mini retreat for me. It’s expansive—in a good way—and you can easily find everything you need without feeling overcrowded. When you just need to get away for a little bit, which all of us moms need to do from time to time, it’s the perfect place to go.
2. It’s a one-stop-shop for essential baby products.
When you’re short on time and energy, convenience is king. What mom wants to be running from store to store to find the baby items she needs? Certainly not this one!
That’s why I love that BJ’s carries the full range of products you need when you have a little one: diapers, wipes, formula if you’re not breastfeeding or if you need to supplement, sippy cups, and more.
I especially appreciate that BJ’s carries my preferred brand of diapers: Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive. We’ve found that they work the best for baby’s gentle skin, and since BJ’s carries them in sizes 2, 3, and 4, they also work great for my toddler who isn’t quite ready to potty train yet. No doubt we’ll be sticking with Pampers diapers and wipes when baby number two arrives very shortly!
3. Stocking up!
Babies go through a lot of diapers. One time I attempted to calculate exactly how many I had purchased throughout the first year of my son’s life, but quickly stopped myself when I realized just how high the final number would be!
Because of that sheer volume, it simply doesn’t make sense to purchase tiny packages over and over again. The same holds true for wipes and other baby products. The larger sizes available at BJ’s are perfect because you don’t have to go shopping over and over and over again—and, perhaps more importantly, you don’t have to worry about running out of what you need!
4. Great values on quality brands.
I want the best for my children, of course, but I also have our bank account to consider.
When it comes to finding the best quality but at affordable prices, I haven’t found anywhere that beats what BJ’s has to offer. The larger package sizes I mentioned earlier—coupled with coupons and other great savings—make it possible for my family to buy the top brands we prefer, like Pampers.
I like knowing that I can feel good about the products I’m buying for my baby while still sticking to our family’s budget.
Shopping at BJ’s has made me realize that while we moms can’t actually “have it all” in the traditional sense, we can get pretty darn close when it comes to buying our favorite baby products! I love that I can get a relaxing shopping experience that offers everything I need to one place, in large enough package sizes, and at a good value. It makes purchasing baby products one thing I don’t have to worry about.
