Uber's new baby and kids hub will help parents get what they need delivered on-demand.

Starting today, a massive catalog of essential baby and home products from nearly 120 buybuy BABY and more than 750 Bed Bath & Beyond locations nationwide are available for on-demand delivery through the Uber and Uber Eats apps.

"We're thrilled to be able to offer parents and caregivers an easy and convenient way to find everything they need for their families, and have it delivered to their doorsteps," said Raj Beri, Uber's VP & Global Head of Grocery and New Verticals. "Every parent knows the stress of urgently needing diapers, pacifiers, thermometers and more—and we know that our new baby and kids hub will help to alleviate some of the stress."

Rafeh Masood, Bed Bath & Beyond Chief Digital and interim Chief Brand Officer, said, "We are rebuilding our authority in the home and baby retail categories to appeal to new consumers, while strengthening relationships with our valued, long-standing customers. This partnership with Uber is a terrific way we are reaching new customers and the fact that buybuy BABY was chosen to help launch Uber's baby and kids delivery vertical reflects the brand's leadership in welcoming customers to parenthood. We are excited to begin this journey with Uber and look forward to having their innovative services market and deliver products from Bed Bath & Beyond and buybuy BABY right to customers' doorsteps."
