You’ll have to think outside the box if you want to come up with a unique baby shower gift that will really impress the mom-to-be. Products invented by moms always make the best gifts, because no one knows what a mom needs better than an actual mom! All these products are created by real moms who have real experience. They just want to make life a bit easier! As a mother of five, I understand what moms really need. If you’re going to give a gift, it might as well be useful. Check out my favorites.
1. Woombie Air Baby Swaddle
The Woombie Air is the safest and most effective baby swaddle that requires no wrapping. It’s the first breathable baby swaddle that regulates baby’s body temperature by allowing excess heat to escape. All you do is put baby in and zip up; the unique peanut-shaped swaddle gently cocoons baby and the 4-way stretch bebeflex(TM) fabric enables baby to move naturally which helps protect against hip dysplasia. Baby’s arms are not pinned to the side; prevents overheating; and no worries of dangerous, lose blankets unraveling and covering baby’s face. The Mom/Nurse invented Woombie Air re-creates the security and comfort baby felt in the womb and promotes longer periods of sleep from birth to 6 months (or when baby begins to roll).
2. The Diaper Clutch
The Diaper Clutch is a stylish and convenient way to carry your diapers and wipes! The Diaper Clutch is the very first to feature the easy access window to the wipes…making diaper changing that much easier. The inner pocket has enough room to fit 2-4 diapers…depending on size. Grab it and go for that quick outing or toss it in your diaper bag. Designed around the Huggies Disposable wipes refill pack, the diaper clutch is also compatible with most disposable soft pack wipes with hard top cover. The Diaper Clutch comes in many different stylish prints for both boys and girls.
3. San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow
The mom invented and multiple-award winning San Diego Bebe(R) Eco-Nursing Pillow offers support, comfort, and discretion for mom and baby. For those times when mothers have no other option but to breastfeed in public, the San Diego Bebe(R) allows for modesty with its built-in Privacy Cover(TM) providing complete discretion while nursing. The cover’s lightweight mesh construction allows continuous airflow, keeping mom and baby comfortable. San Diego Bebe(R)’s signature Comfort Bolster(TM) wraps around the outside of the pillow for added security. San Diego Bebe(R) has an angled top surface and detachable back pillow for optimal support and comfort. It is available in a variety of chic colors and plush fabrics. Option for one baby or for twins to feed two babies simultaneously!
$59.99 – $79.99
4. Nizo Wear Nursing Bras
Nizo Wear healing nursing bras feature a unique patented pocket in the pull down flap that can hold a warm or cool pack. The pocket acts as a thin barrier between wearer’s skin and the heating or cooling pack, which increases comfort and safety. The Nizo Wear design has removable molded pads held securely in place in the pocket, for added lining when you want it (to hide nipples, breast pads, light leaks), and the ability to take it out when you don’t. In addition to the innovative functionality, Nizo Wear is made from amazingly soft fabrics, pretty prints, and shapely lines to help moms feel stylish and good again.
Nizo Wear nursing bras currently come in three feminine styles: the Serenity Nursing Bra, Solace Nursing Bra, and the Allure Nursing Bra.
$19.99 – $29.99
5. Baby Elephant Ears
Baby Elephant Ears is a multi-use headrest providing spinal/neck alignment and comfort for babies — and they’re designed to look like adorable elephant ears! Baby Elephant Ears go wherever baby goes — stroller, swing, carseat, changing table, etc. The headrests are fully washable and require no attachments, straps or special skills and they’re offered in diverse prints and organics. The superior design and durability of these headrests make them the perfect gift for parents!
6. Baby J Padded Play Mat
This padded play mat for babies and toddlers is perfect for use at mommy and me classes or for lying down in the park. The play mat was designed for the germ conscious mom who always wants a clean area for her little one. The play mat is crafted with vibrant and colorful, 100% cotton, designer fabric and super plush minky. It’s comfy and cozy for any new baby, and great for tummy time. It measures 29″x35″ and features a Velcro closure that ensures one side stays clean and sanitary, and always stays compact and folded up in your diaper bag.
PullyPalz are the first ever baby toys that actually help babies retrieve their own pacifiers! They’re interactive and entertaining to keep baby distracted and helpful for parents who no longer have to play the “pacifier game.” The innovative and developmentally beneficial toy keeps pacifiers in view and in reach to keep them clean. PullyPalz hold most pacifiers and attach to baby carriers, bouncers and more.
9. Wubbanub Pacifier
Soft and cuddly, it’s unique style allows pacifier to remain close and will easily position to baby. The pacifier is made of medical grade silicone and BPA free. The soft plush portion provides comfort to the touch and makes it so much easier for the baby’s little hands to grasp and manipulate the pacifier them self. Which means fewer bouncing, rolling and lost pacifiers and less rooting around in the stroller or bag to find the pacifier.
8. Bobee Diaper and Wipe Dispenser
A wall-mounted diaper & wipe caddy, Bobee allows for one-handed access so you can keep one hand safely on your baby. The diaper caddy comes white and is customizable with included colorful decals to decorate and match your nursery room decor. Changing table space is freed up for other important baby items, and the diapers and wipes are up and out of the way from curious little hands. The dispenser fits high quantities in all sizes and brands of disposable diapers. Pre-package wet wipes fit neatly below.
