Planning for your new little one and feeling overwhelmed by options?
Don't know what to buy for your friend's baby shower or 1st birthday?
Here are our top recommendations for products and items we loved!
For Baby & Registry
Car Seat/Nursing Cover - Black (Black, to make it darker when baby is sleeping)
Bath tub - Stokke Flexi Bath (You can alternatively use the kitchen sink)
Hydrasense Nasal Aspirator for Infants(Much better than the FridaMom nose sucker)
Silicone catch-all bibs
Baby Tylenol/Claritin/Vit D drops
Larger, season-appropriate clothes for baby (babies outgrow clothes wildly fast)
Food gift cards (for those days when it's too tiring to cook)
For 1st Birthday
Kitchen Step Stool for Toddlers (this is something you will use for years!)
Contribution to RESP's, larger purchases (like a new car seat) and gift cards for family outings such as, museums, play cafes, group classes, swim classes, etc.
For Just MOM
A weekend or week-long getaway for mother and girlfriends, or, Mom and family members.
Extra curricular activities for Mom: Local events, yoga classes, wine and paint night, dance classes— get her to literally shake things up and step completely away from role of being a mother.
Massage (this can be solo or couple)
Help with research or contribute to their ability to seek professional help
Pampering: Hair, nails, lashes, facial
Shopping spree: New wardrobe
Your time IS a gift. This could include babysitting offerings (offer your time to look after babe so mom can do literally anything else) or even just doing research on a product or class because mom is too tired and overwhelmed. These small tasks feel HUGE when you're in the throws of postpartum.
