When it comes to parenting, the last thing on your mind is investing, at least for some of you. But what if we told you investing as parents can lead to bright futures for your little one?
Maybe, you’re saying, “obviously,” to that statement but we also know getting started in investing, if you’ve never done it before, can be nerve-racking. So Mamas Uncut did some internet sleuthing to see what baby stocks are worth investing in in 2021. The ones we choose to share with you are companies that offer great products for moms who have just given birth, products for growing babies, products that support female hygiene, and so much more.
So where should you invest?
According to Articledesk.net, one of the best baby stock companies to look into right now is Koninklijke Philips N.V. The company uses the PHG symbol within the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
When it comes to Koninklijke Philips N.V., they are known for providing care for mom, baby, and also oral healthcare products. But their baby bottle warmer is one of the best on the market. Philips creates several products that help make the transition into mom-life so much easier. As of July 20, you can buy a share for $46.03.

Or if you’re opting to bottle feed your little one, you must remember bottles! And these Philips Avent ones come with a brush, two pacifiers, a cleaning brush, and a case! This are anti-colic nipples and ones that closely replicate a mother’s breast!
Another great company to invest in that is dedicated to helping moms and babies is Kimberly-Clark Corporation, or KMB, within the NYSE. Best known for their diaper brand, Huggies, Kimberly-Clark also creates many other products people use on a daily basis, including toilet paper, feminine products, Kleenex tissues, and more.
As of July 20, a KMB share is going for $140.23.
Articledesk.net also recommends investing in Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), which creates household baby care products, and Procter & Gamble (PG), who offer Pampers, Tampax, and more. Currently, JNJ shares are selling for $170.51, which is just dollars from their year-high and PG shares are going for $141.59 which is also dollars away from their year-high.
Another highly sought-after stock opportunity is The Children’s Place, according to WYATT Investment Research. This company uses the PLCE symbol within Nasdaq. Currently, a share can be purchased for $80.56. However, while it’s been on the decline since July 12, it’s begun a new upward trend.

WYATT also suggests buying stock in Amazon. As Chris Preston reports, “almost every parent I know swears by Amazon Prime,” so maybe you should too! Currently, an AMZN share can be purchased for $3,526.10, which is low compared to weeks earlier.
It’s also important to note, that if you are new to stocks and purchasing shares, that it’s important to keep an eye on the specific company, as much as it is the overall market. Not always do single company performances match the trends of the overall market and vice versa.
When should you start teaching your kids how to invest?

According to Riley Adams, CPA, and YoungAndTheInvested.com, some of those companies include Disney (NYSE: DIS), McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD), Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX), Hasbro (NASDAQ: HAS), and Mattel (NASDAQ: MAT).

As The Motley Fool reports, Disney is currently bouncing back after closing its parks, hotels, resorts, and more due to COVID-19. This means now may be a great time to get your kids’ hands on some shares which are currently $175.79.
And when it comes to the most affordable shares, currently, Mattel, which offers great toys for kids, such as Barbie, action figures, and more, is currently selling for $19.74. So if you’re looking to start your child off small, this is a great place to start.
