The Best Registry Gifts for New Moms

If you’re like many expecting parents, you have a laundry list of things to work on before your impending arrival arrives: deciding on the type of practitioners that’s right for your pregnancy, setting up a registry, picking out a pediatrician, making a birth plan, packing your bags, pre-washing the baby’s clothes, and purchasing the essentials for your impending arrival – the list is practically is endless!

This review was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management, and Pampers was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

It isn’t before long that you start panicking once that elated feeling of being becoming a new parent slowly fades away. If you’re like many expecting parents, you have a laundry list of things to work on before your impending arrival arrives: deciding on the type of practitioners that’s right for your pregnancy, setting up a registry, picking out a pediatrician, making a birth plan, packing your bags, pre-washing the baby’s clothes, and purchasing the essentials for your impending arrival – the list is practically is endless!

The Best Registry Gifts for New Moms

Baby Carrier

With my firstborn, I was apprehensive about wearing a baby carrier since they looked uncomfortable and unsafe. I can’t vouch for other styles and brands, but I can truthfully say that this isn’t a fraction of the truth with the baby carrier I currently use. My 8-month-old was at a stage where he didn’t like being confined, causing him to be squirmy! That is why he didn’t seem to like being placed into the baby carrier at first, but he has gotten used to it now. This makes it a comfortable experience for the both of us. It also helps that the carrier is made of a superbly soft fabric, making it the utmost comfortable experience for the both of us.

Onesies

Onesies, bodysuits, or one-pieces, whatever you refer to them as, make fantastic gifts! They’re adorable as they’re versatile, making them the basic staple in every baby’s wardrobe.

Baby Lounger

Unless you have been living underneath a proverbial rock, the days of hauling a cumbersome Pack ’n Play from one destination to the next are long gone! This is because of the holy grail of baby gear: a baby lounger! The one I love is a portable co-sleeper and lounger that has won the approval of everyday and celebrity moms alike, from Kim Kardashian and Emilie de Ravin to Lauren Conrad and Coco Rocha.

It is true that these baby loungers have a price tag that may cause any parent to be hesitant, but it is truly worth the investment! Especially if it is quality, functionality, and versatility that you’re wanting. It is definitely baby shower gift-worthy. The recipient may send you another thank you card down the road – even if they already sent you one after the shower!

Baby Toiletries

Baby starter kits are ideal for new moms, whether it’s preparing for the arrival of bambino or planning for a weekend getaway sans the stress and hassle of packing every baby product necessary. These type of kits are normally housed in a small bag they can easily throw into their purse!

Baby Shopping Cart Hammock

Have you ever tried grocery shopping with a new baby? Or worse, a baby and a toddler? How do you do it? Where do you put them? Most shopping carts have space for one child to sit upright near the handlebars. This is great if you have just one child and they can sit upright. But what about a floppy newborn? And don’t even think about setting that infant carrier up on top of your cart. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “falls from shopping carts are among the leading causes of head injuries to young children.” Your precious bundle of joy deserves a safer way to shop.

This baby shopping cart hammock provides just that. The patented, one-of-a-kind hammock is a soft and cozy seat that hangs elevated inside the basket portion of a shopping cart, allowing plenty of room for groceries. It provides a comfy, safe place for an infant who is not quite ready to sit up yet. My son was just a few months old in the picture above. We no longer use the shopping cart hammock since he is now able to sit up in a shopping cart…with a shopping cart cover, of course! However, it can hold up to 50 lbs and makes the perfect shopping companion for moms with young infants in tow.

Diapers

Babies go through diapers as quickly as you place them on and this can get expensive for anyone. With this being said, babies grow quickly and so do their diaper sizes! 40% of moms didn’t include enough diapers on their baby registries. Moms can’t go wrong with Pampers Swaddlers (in all different sizes) on their registry to ensure baby is always wrapped in blanket-like softness through their entire journey of firsts.

Is there someone you know who recently had a baby? Create a gift basket for her filled with essentials that will help the new mom get much needed shut-eye. Fill it with products such as a cozy pair of pajamas, a candle or an aromatherapy diffuser, sound machine, throw, and body scrub – anything you can think of that will be beneficial for the new mom. Don’t forget the baby! For the baby, you can include a swaddle sack and Pampers Swaddlers Diapers.
