50 Products on Amazon Every Mom Needs

There are millions of products on Amazon for moms that could make this list, but here's a jumping-off point to help fill up your cart!

Published May 17, 2019

Our team of specialists and parents review everything we recommend and only endorse products and services we genuinely believe in. When you buy through our links, we may earn a commission. Learn more.

Have you ever seen those memes that list all the things mamas love, then dare you to pick only three from the list? They often name things like yoga pants, coffee, and Netflix. But you’ll notice that Amazon is never on those memes. No way are any mamas ruling that one out — and it’s because SO many of us rely heavily on the courier giant that delivers anything your heart desires (or needs!) in a speedy 48-hour timeframe. While putting go-to’s in your cart the next time you’re online, consider adding these 50 products!

We love this stroller for how lightweight and durable it is! It weighs less than 10 pounds and has a UPF50+ sun canopy. It is seriously a game-changer for travel or any place where a lot of walking (read: melting down and being generally over it) with a toddler is involved.

We don’t know who needs to hear this right now, but you might be almost out of diaper pail refills: get them in two days flat. This value pack has 75 bags and can hold up to 3,150 newborn diapers! These are scent-free and work well with the Ubbi Diaper Pail, though it fits many others as well.

3. A Device That Actually Follows Directions

8. A Ridiculous but Practical Piece of Exercise Equipment

It’s like an elliptical machine, but compact! What’s not to love? It can fit in small spaces and is super easy to assemble. Hop on during an episode of “Paw Patrol” (or, better yet, “The Bachelor”) and get your daily steps in! Don’t believe us? Read the hundreds of five-star reviews.

9. A Reminder to SLOW. IT. DOWN.

10. Fun Summer Reads

We all love the comfort of a new pair of fuzzy socks! These have a wild animal print, but their neutral color makes them easy to wear with everyday clothing. They’re also great for lounging around the house while you sit back, watch a movie, and have some me-time.

15. A Baby Sun Hat = Freedom

20. Lactation Cookies

Lactation cookies come in various flavors and include essential ingredients like oatmeal, brewer’s yeast, and flax.

21. A Donut Pillow, Because Giving Birth Hurts

24. An Inflatable Bathtub

Inflatable Froggie Bath
Buy Here

An inflatable bathtub is not necessarily for mom (unless you want to soak your feet because that’s a great hidden use for this product), but it’s a lifesaver once your baby is about 6 months or older. Although some parents like the idea of filling up the tub and having lots of toys for their child to play around with at bath time, the reality is that bath time doesn’t last very long for a baby, and it’s an immense pain to clean up a whole tub every night. Try this smaller version and save yourself a boatload of time!

25. A Postpartum Recovery Essentials Kit

28. Compression Socks

Can’t splurge for the compression massager? That’s alright!

29. Toy Safety Straps
