Over the last 10 years, subscription services have changed the way we live delivering delight and necessities when we need them. Seven months into the parenting I realized there were a number of subscriptions that were making life SO easy for us, so I wanted to share. And maybe then can help you too!
The average kid will go through 5,000 diapers, and all of them end up in a landfill. I knew diapers were made with plastics and I wanted a more sustainable option that was not a cloth diaper. After a lot of research, I found HealthyBaby Diapers. Healthybaby diapers are made with organic cotton, EWG verified (no toxins) and carbon neutral. The diapers are ultra soft and SO absorbant. I was really surprised when we switched from Pampers to HealthyBaby how big of a difference there was in absorption levels. Healthybaby is also B-Corp certified too!
With a monthly subscription, all the diapers you need are delivered right to your door. We are never running out in the middle of the night for diapers! All of the packaging is recyclable too!

Everyone’s journey with feeding their baby is different, but the number one thing to remember is a fed baby is the best baby. We chose Bobbie formula because of the clean ingredients and having it be a subscription that comes right to us when we need. The delivery took all the worries of the formula shortage away for us. They recently reopened ordering, so hop on while you can. Also highly recommend the Baby Brezza to make bottle time a breeze.
Figuring out what we are going to eat for dinner is very stress-inducing for me. When Clay and I talked about the first weeks of parenting, we wanted to remove that stress from our lives. So we looked for a meal delivery service and landed on Factor Meals. We have been using a Factor for 6 months now and LOVE IT. Each week we use the app to pick out our healthy meals (whole30, keto, paelo, etc) and how many meals we want to be delivered. All the meals come fresh, and you have a week to enjoy or you can freeze them. Plus, all the shipping materials are recyclable too.
Ritual Pre & Post Natal Vitamins
Taking your prenatal during pregnancy is soo important and having them delivered makes it way easier to remember and not miss a day. I had been using Ritual for a few years before starting my prenatal so it was easy to just continue with them and then switch to a post-natal and then regular vitamins after pregnancy. Just a few clicks on the site and your subscription is updated to exactly what you need. I also love that all the packaging is recyclable and made with post-consumer waste.
Nutrafol – Hair Loss Suppliment
One of the many blessings that come with motherhood is hair loss!! Mine actually started to fall out during pregnancy and I could not wait to start taking Nuraflol after Callie was born. I have seen a notable difference in my hair and the bald spots have started to fill back in with little baby hairs. Nutrafol is the only hair-loss pill (I could find) that was safe to take while nursing postpartum too. The packaging is also made from recycled plastic and glass.
First Leaf Wine
Wine isn’t necessary for parenting, but I do love a glass of rose on a hot day or the perfect red to go with my dinner. We tried a few wine delivery subscriptions but what I love about this one is that the wines we get are wines I actually see in my local liquor store or at restaurants. I can rank my favorite wines and keep track of them on their site too.
Taking Cara Babies
Okay, not a subscription, but the Taking Cara Babies class really saved us in those first few weeks/months. The IG is great but the class is worth every penny IMO! We did a combo of Taking Cara Babies and Moms on Call and it worked great for us!
Do you have a subscription service you love? I am always looking for ways to so drop them in the comments
