Gifts for New Moms from Her Husband
A symbol of family, the circle is why we wear wedding bands when we marry. The Sterling Silver Teething Necklace is a perfect 'push present' for you to give your wife as a way to symbolize your growing and lasting commitment to her and your family together. Made to last for generations, and designed to be a safe teether when baby is a few months older, the teething bracelet is a timeless, elegant way to show her how beautiful she is to you as a mother.
Gifts for the Urban New Mom
Her new baby’s nursery features sleek, European furniture and trendy colors with not a trace of pastel to be found. How the new parents could even fit a new baby in their apartment is a mystery, but one thing is certain: space is limited. What the urban new mom needs is a compact baby memory book and what she wants is one without cutesy fonts and stock illustrations of pacifiers and storks all over it. The slim, sleek and slightly edgy Mamentos AD First Year Baby Journal fits the bill. With urban styling and a touch of humor, this baby journal includes enough-but-not-too-many pages to record important milestones of baby’s first year along with spots to note amusing memories (like when baby’s cord fell off and the daytime TV show you thought you’d never watch). Printed on recycled paper with vegetable-based inks for even more street cred.
Gifts for the Breastfeeding New Mother
At her baby shower, she was loaded up with diapers and baby wipes, but did anyone think to give her the other new-mom-essential: nursing pads? Disposable nursing pads are not only scratchy and rough on her tender skin, but they also crinkle and make a lot of noise. Remember when you were a young pre-teen and put Kleenex in your training bra? Disposable nursing pads are just as obvious. That's why she'll thank you for giving her Bamboobies Nursing Pads Multipak. As their name suggests, they're made of bamboo, which is both incredibly soft and extremely absorbent. The unique heart-shape actually helps them better fit the contour of breasts so they're less noticeable. Called "the Maserati of nursing pads," Bamboobies are washable and reusable.
Gifts for New Moms Going Back to Work
Whether she's going back after 6 weeks of maternity leave or 16, help ease her transition back to the office with the beautiful Giselle Maternity Dress made from bamboo. Because this soft, rave-worthy natural fabric is so flattering, forgiving and comfortable, it'll soon be one of her favorite back-to-work outfits. Plus, the discreet nursing panels will make it easier for her to breastfeed or pump at work.
Giselle Dress, $119
Gifts for New Moms from Her Friends
Friends know what friends really want. And what a brand-new mom wants after she's given birth is to get into her pre-pregnancy jeans again. Every new mother, no matter how much she enjoyed her pregnant body, feels a little dismayed at what her belly looks like after birth. The Body Bounce Back Kit is a perfect gift to help her get her body back after birth. With full sizes of Body Firming Serum, for smoothing and firming up loose skin, and Stretchmark Minimizing Cream for fading those dark stretch marks, this kit will be a welcomed gift. What are friends for?
Body Bounce Back Kit , $69.99
Gift for the New Mom's Night Out
Most women abstain from drinking alcohol during pregnancy and after baby arrives, they look forward to their occasional drink of choice. But if she's breastfeeding, she's probably confused about how to sensibly drink alcohol and feed her baby. Take the guesswork out of it and give her a box or two of Milkscreen Test Strips that detect alcohol in breastmilk. No matter if her drink of choice is a glass of red wine, a dark beer or a martini, she'll be ready to raise a glass and celebrate her first night out after baby without worry.
Gifts for New Moms of Baby #2
Whether she just brought home twins or she has her hands full with a toddler and a new baby, the Mommy & Baby Bonding Kit is just the thing to nurture her body, soothe her spirit and support her connection with the new little one. With rich, nourishing organic skin care products, aromatherapy bonding oil, and organic nipple butter, she'll enjoy incorporating these items into her daily routine as she adjusts to the new routine of mothering more than one.
Gifts to Bring the New Mom for Your First Visit
Bringing food is a great idea when you come visit the new baby and mother, but it's not always possible. Whether you come with a casserole or not, consider also handing her something she'll use every week of her new baby's life: a Mamentos Note Pad. While she's rocking her new baby or breastfeeding or in between laundry, she'll appreciate having the convenient note pad nearby for jotting down those special memories, baby's "firsts" and more. If she goes back to work, she'll love sending it with the day care provider for keeping track of the moments she misses.
Gift for the New Mother Who Had a C-Section
We're of the opinion that every new mother should be able to expect some help recovering from childbirth, and when she's had a c-section, that extra assistance is even more important. Breastfeeding a newborn can be painful for new mothers who had a c-section because keeping baby in place for best latch can put stress on the abdomen and back. The My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow helps protect the new mother's c-section incision while it supports her back with its unique supports and adjustable strap that keep it high off the tender area.
My Brest Friend Nursing Pillows, $48-$52
