Gift Guide: 35 Best Items For New Moms On Amazon

Precious Moments

The first months with a newborn are awe-inspiring, and some of the most memorable moments  you’ll have as a new parent exist in the small daily routines that foster trust and a special bond with your baby. Below are some of my favorite little tools for those times, divided into bedtime tools and nursing support, but beginning with my favorite:

 

Dr. Sears Balboa Baby Sling

 

As an attachment parent, I cannot recommend this sling enough. In the early days, when I didn’t have the brain cells or energy to try to figure out my Boba wrap, but needed a simple, soft carrier for daily use (mostly at home), the Balboa sling was a lifesaver. I still use it with Juno at eight months old on a regular basis.

 

 

 

Bedtime Tools

A bedtime routine has got to be the cornerstone of sanity for a new mom! I wish I started ours earlier. It now consists of bath time, baby massage with a delightful oil, brushing of hair, then reading to baby before turning down the lights. Here are the four products we use at sundown every day.

 

1. Primo EuroBath Tub

2. Puracy Baby Shampoo

3. Badger Baby Oil

4. Little Tinkers World Wooden Baby Hairbrush

 

 

Nursing Support

I could probably make a list of 35 things entirely to do with nursing; from bras and camisoles, Boppys and nursing shawls, to gliding chairs and Spectra pumps. But here are a few supplementary suggestions for keeping your flow a go.

 

1. Mommy Knows Best Lactation Cookie Mix

2. Organic Lactation Nursing Bundle

3. Traditional Medicinals Mother’s Milk Tea

4. YETI 30 oz Rambler

 

 

All About Mama

As Mom adjusts to the new demands of the fourth trimester, she’s going to be using all of her brain cells thinking about baby. Here are a few things that might help her feel a little more like herself.

 

 

1. doTerra Family Essential Kit

2. Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Pillow

3. Sunday Riley Juno Essential Face Oil

4. Yumi Kim Pajamas

5. Natori Shangri La Robe

6. Smith & Cult Nail Polish

7. Savvy Infusion Water Bottle

 

 

Tech

So much has changed in tech between having Kaya thirteen years ago, and Juno eight months ago. Having the option to lean on gadgets is pretty incredible, especially when you’re doing things without a Yaya! Voice activated, hands free EVERYTHING, please!

 

 

1. Backslash Self-Rolling Smart Yoga Mat

2. Tile Pro

3. Arlo Baby Monitor

4. Sierra Modern Smart WiFi Home Diffuser

5. Echo Spot

 

 

Learning

For the early weeks of life, I believe strongly that most of baby’s learning comes from constant interaction and less from external tools, but here are two things I will happily recommend for new parents.

 

The Play Gym by Lovevery

Indestructibles Books
