I am no stranger to subscribe & save offers. They became my go-to way to survive during pregnancy and postpartum. With so much to keep track of and so little energy to get it done, being able to subscribe and then essentially forget about the item on my ever-growing to-do list was a game changer.
It seems like you can subscribe to services to cover all of your life needs, and there are some that were particularly helpful during pregnancy and postpartum, especially as I navigated two under 2-years-old. Trying to care for a newborn, a toddler, and, oh yea, myself, was incredibly challenging. I’m not ashamed to say that outsourcing my needs like having meals delivered and depending on Disney+ as a babysitter is what got us through those early months.
Thankfully, you can subscribe (and usually save!) to many services, including getting yourself some of the necessary nutrients needed during pregnancy (via monthly deliveries of your vitamins) all the way to a supply of diapers for your newborn. If you need a little help keeping your life in order during pregnancy and postpartum, here are eight tried-and-true subscription services (and some favorite products) that we recommend.
1. Prenatal and Postnatal Vitamins with Rainbow Light
There are many important things to remember during pregnancy, and taking a prenatal vitamin is at the top of the list. I loved Rainbow Light’s prenatal vitamins and also loved getting them delivered to my door when I needed them. They also offer a postpartum version as well as daily vitamins for your partner and children.
2. Entertainment with Disney+ and Noggin
For my toddler, I needed something to keep her occupied during pregnancy when my energy levels were at zero and during postpartum when I was breastfeeding and needed her to sit quietly by my side. Noggin (PAW Patrol!) and Disney+ to the rescue! We are deep into a princess phase, so Disney+ is a basic human need in my household.
3. Fitness Motivation with Peloton
I can’t say that I was my most motivated self during pregnancy, but having a Peloton in my bedroom helped. I did low-impact rides just to keep my body moving. If you don’t want to invest in the bike, you can do the other offered classes at just $12.99 per month.
4. Diaper Coverage with Amazon Subscribe & Save
There are several diaper subscription services, so once you decide on your favorite diaper brand, check out the options available to you. As Pampers fans in my house, we subscribe via Amazon.
5. Pet Care with Jinx
My first baby, my pup Ollie, officially made the move from our baby to our dog. I still love the little guy, but ordering his food dropped on my priority list. He loves food from Jinx, so subscribing to that service makes sure my pup is happily fed and I don’t have to remember actually ordering the food.
6. Healthy Food Delivery (for moms) with Farmer’s Fridge
Feeding yourself nutritious food during pregnancy and postpartum is incredibly important—you’re growing and nurturing new life! A nice way to treat yourself is with a meal delivery service just for you. My go-to is Farmer’s Fridge.
7. Easy Food Delivery (for my toddler) with Little Spoon
For nights when I just cannot get my act together for my older child, I can pop a Little Spoon plate into the microwave for 60 seconds, and dinner is served!
8. Home Cleaning Help with Grove
During my first pregnancy, I did whatever I could to make my home a bit cleaner in terms of the products we used. I really started to pay attention to what ingredients we used in our cleaning products and made the switch to Grove so I’d always know I was making a good choice for our family. I subscribe to my most-used items, which include home cleaning products as well as kid-friendly items like hand sanitizer and baby wipes.
