It's a truth universally acknowledged that parents buying baby stuff are always looking for a sale. Luckily, Target often provides the very best of those. Personally, I routinely spend $100 and up in Target's baby aisle — hurray, Gerber Graduate meals — so I can honestly report that what to get at the Target Baby sale is simple — you need this amazing gift card deal.
Here's how it works — when you spend $100 on baby essentials like food pouches, diapers, and wipes either online or in stores, Target gives you a $20 gift card. A customer service representative told me that if you order online, they'll email your gift card to you.
And the selection of "baby essentials" is robust. You'll find Target's store brand diapers as well as Pampers, Gerber Graduates puffs and yogurt melts (among many other convenient baby food choices), and formula and bottles galore. You'll also find toiletries like baby shampoo and a robust selection of baby toothbrushes, too.
If you're just starting your parenting journey, know also that Target is offering a $40 gift card when you spend $200 on nursery furniture, from rocking chairs to infant cribs. Not bad, right?
To take full advantage of your gift card, here are a few click-worthy Target deals going on right now.

7. Pampers Swaddlers Diapers Giant Pack
What's the fastest way to get a $20 gift card in the baby essentials sale, you ask? To me, the answer is clear — stock up on diapers, diapers, diapers. The Pampers Swaddlers Diapers Giant Pack, including 128 diapers in a set, is a great place to start.

Because Target is trying to kill me with how awesome they are, they're also offering a $30 gift card when you buy the Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump with On-The-Go Tote. This is a quality breast pump right here, too, by the way, and totally worth the price. Although — word to the wise — some hospitals do give them free to new moms that need them for medical reasons.

10. Acetaminophen Infant - 2oz (2pk) - up & up
In pursuit of the baby essentials gift card you can also stock up on all sorts of health and saftey supplies.
