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.
Gift for the New Mom Fashionista
She's always so stylish, and you just know she won't lose her fashion sense after baby is born. If you can't picture her ever toting around a pastel diaper bag with polka dots and teddy bears on it, give her a knock-out diaper bag from OiOi Sophisticated Baby Bags . Each style of OiOi diaper bags is easy-to-clean, comes with color-coordinated accessories (like a hard case for diaper wipes), built-in stroller straps and the best feature-they're BPA-free and phthalate-free. So she stays stylish and keeps baby safe from toxic chemicals.
OiOi Sophisticated Baby Bags , range from $80-$250

If there's one thing a new mother needs, it's nursing tops. And if there's one thing mothers love to do for their daughters, it's buy them clothes. Satisfy your need to buy your daughter clothes and her need to have discreet nursing wear for pumping at work or breast feeding out on the town with a nursing tunic like this Double Cowl Cross Front Tunic. Made of soft, breathable modal and available in sizes from 0 - 24 to fit every beautiful new 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
Speaking of breastfeeding, when her maternity leave is over and the new mom goes back to work, her milk supply may suffer. Many women experience a noticeable drop in breast milk supply at this time, but that's what breast feeding tea is for. This Anna Naturals New Mother Holiday Gift Set contains tea bags of the remarkably great-tasting Nursing Mamas Tea to stimulate milk supply, along with a heavenly scented mocha cinnamon soap to awaken her senses in the shower as she gets back into her morning routine.
Gifts for New Moms from Her BFF
There's only one person who can give a new mom the right piece of costume jewelry, and that's her BFF. Only you know the colors that look best on her, the perfect piece that goes with one of her favorite outfits. You know her style. And you know that her new baby's drooling, teething, and yanking at her jewelry might be cramping her style at the moment. That's where you and Jellystone Designs Silicone Teething Necklaces & Bracelets come in. These fun pieces of teething jewelry help her feel more feminine and fashionable again after baby's arrival and serve as practical teething solutions when she's out and about with baby.
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
