Babies don’t come with an instruction manual, but every well-meaning stranger will have their share of advice to impart on new moms. While the advice of the grandma waiting in line at the grocery store might not be what a new mom really needs, in the comfort of her own home finding sage advice on caring for a baby can be a welcome comfort.
From 12 Things No One Ever Tells You About Babies to 10 Newborn Worries (Not to Fret About) Walmart’s Every Little Step website offers a portal filled with tips and testimonials from moms who have been in the trenches battling their baby’s toughest battles – diaper blowout anyone?
Filled with advice about baby essentials, the website isn’t just for moms. Grandparents, godparents, friends and anyone else with a baby in their lives can benefit from resources like Planning the Perfect Baby Shower and 10 Wonderful Shower Ideas.
Plus while exploring the articles and tips on the Every Little Step website you can also find the all of the baby essentials you need for your little one. From diapers to nursery, toys to gear, you can shop for your little bundle of joy’s every little step. There are even mom essentials like maternity clothes and pregnancy books.

Beyond the newborn stage already? The Every Little Step website even tackles potty training! (A page I am bookmarking for my own future endeavors.)
There is a lot to learn about a new baby. Much of it you will learn on your own along the way, but every once in a while its nice to read stories about real moms to see that you aren’t alone. Thanks to Walmart and Huggies® stories from moms (and dads) are waiting for you on the Every Little Step website when you are ready for them.
If you are expecting a little one, you’ll have your own stories to tell soon enough. Like the first time I tried to separate my daughter from her lovey when in public. While Pinkie is now happy to stay at home, the transition from full-time friend to bed-time pal was a rough one. It also taught me that my daughter as the ability to work herself up into such a frenzy she can make herself physically ill — all over mom, in public. Good times.
