Best Gifts For New & Expectant Moms

WubbaNub Pacifier :: The attached stuffed animal makes it easy for baby to grab and hold on to and also helps to soothe them. It’s also easier for moms to catch it when it falls out of their baby’s mouth and is on its way to the floor (plus, it won’t roll away from you). The stuffed animal does not detach from the pacifier piece, but you can throw the whole thing in the washer and then air dry it. The pacifier part is the same as is distributed in hospitals in the NICU and well-baby units nationwide.

Amazon Prime Membership :: Give the gift of Prime and mom can enjoy free 2-day shipping (nobody can use that more than a mom with a newborn!), binge watch thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, stream lullabies with Prime Music, and have unlimited photo storage to save all those precious moments. She will enjoy this gift all year long. Pair the membership with a Fire TV Stick so mom can turn her TV into a smart TV and binge watch shows while recovering and feeding!

Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack :: The Boon Lawn drying rack is a space saver on your counter-top, plus it isn’t an eyesore in the kitchen! The drying rack will outlast the baby days, for sippy cups, utensils, plates, etc. as you transition to toddler days. You can even buy “twig” accessories to make the space even more efficient.

Fisher-Price Deluxe Kick ‘n Play Piano Gym :: This gym has four ways to play and will grow with your baby. It is great for tummy time for those early days and your baby can listen to the music and explore the soft attached toys. The piano can be kicked with their feet as they learn how their body moves and it can also be played while sitting to help them with sitting skills and hand-eye coordination.

Britax Advocate ClickTight Convertible Car Seat :: Britax’s ClickTight technology makes it possible to install a car seat in three simple steps. This car seat is convertible from rear to forward facing, so you will get a lot of use out of it, especially since the weight range is from 5-40 pounds (rear facing) to 20-60 pounds (forward facing)!

The Honest Company Diapers & Wipes Bundle :: Diapers and wipes are one of the best gifts to give, because you can never have too many and they will definitely get used. The Honest Company has the cutest designs that make diaper changing as fun as it can be and they look cute in pictures! The bundle will be sent directly to the mom’s house and you can choose how many months you want to send the bundle! We recommend sizing up if you are gifting diapers, because babies are constantly growing! While diapers and wipes might not be the most exciting thing to buy, it is definitely a practical gift that will be much appreciated.

4moms mamaRoo Baby Swing :: This baby swing bounces up and down and sways from side to side, just like moms do! Along with five unique motions, the seat can adjust to multiple positions (up to a full recline) and is Bluetooth enabled so you can control the motion, sound, speed and volume from your phone. This is a must have for tired moms with newborns!

Doona Infant Car Seat & Latch Base {with Wheels!} :: Doona’s car seat with wheels is probably the coolest baby product we’ve ever seen. The seat has integrated wheels, which means that, in less than five seconds, you can be out of the car, wheeling your precious cargo around in a stroller to do errands! You don’t have to figure out a complicated stroller on top of the car seat and risk your baby waking up. This seat fits babies 4 pounds to 35 pounds.

Muslin Swaddle Blankets :: Muslin swaddles are a staple for any new mom and baby since they are so versatile and can be used as a stroller cover, nursing cover, burp cloth, blanket, and so much more. There are lot of brands available, but we especially love the blankets and designs from aden + anais and Newcastle Classics.

Baby K’tan Baby Carrier :: Babies love to be snuggled and to be close to their mamas, so the Baby K’tan carrier makes them happy because they get to do both! Plus, moms have their hands free to do errands, eat, cook, clean, or read a book. It is the easiest wrap to wear and get baby into. As a bonus, it is machine washable and dryer safe, so you don’t have to worry if the baby spits up on it or has a diaper blow out!
