4 delivery services to make life with a newborn easier

Blue Apron

After those sleepless nights, the thought of getting both you and your newborn out the door to buy groceries might sound like torture. Lucky for you, there are now door-to-door services for almost everything a new mom could want.


Stitch Fix


From laundry to food to much-earned pampering, keep this list handy.


Stay dressed


Stitch Fix


Post-baby body is not something that’s always easy or fun to dress, and the thought of trying on clothes in a dressing room can bring on some serious panic. Stitch Fix brings a personal stylist to you. After a quick personal style quiz online, a stylist selects five articles of clothing and accessories and they are delivered to your door. Be specific about the postpartum body areas you wish to hide or accentuate to help the stylist make the best selections. For only a $20 styling fee (that amount is deducted from whatever you decide to buy), it’s an easy way to update your new mama wardrobe.


Stay clean




Your sweet tiny baby goes through a ton of outfits every day. Get help with your dirty clothes with DRYV, a door-to-door laundry service. With DRYV’s app, schedule a pick-up, track your laundry online, and in as little as 36 hours, your clean laundry is brought back to you. It’s one less thing for new mamas to worry about—your time is better spent snuggling that new bundle of joy anyway.


Stay fed


Blue Apron


Ever forget that one item on your grocery list essential to dinner and dread the return trip to the store, especially with an unpredictable baby on board? Skip the store altogether and have everything needed for a delicious dinner, delivered in a refrigerated box to your doorstep. Blue Apron offers family plan options where all the fresh, pre-measured ingredients and cooking instructions are delivered to you. With a few easy, clear steps, you can have a home-cooked dinner on the table. Plus with free shipping, the option to skip weeks and cancel anytime, Blue Apron doesn’t give you many reasons not to give it a shot.




With Instacart, you can skip the traffic, crowds, and multiple stops by ordering your groceries online while baby naps. Select your items from stores in your area, such as Whole Food, Mariano’s, Target, Petco, Costco, Binny’s Beverage Depot and more. Schedule your delivery time and your items are handpicked by a shopper and delivered to your home. For a small delivery fee and saved sanity, it really cannot get any better than this.
