‘Tis the season for giving and receiving, but new moms-to-be have probably been making lists and checking them twice for several months now. Even with 9 months to plan and an abundance of advice from friends and family, websites and books, it’s hard to know what you really need. Add in all the modern day precautions that a new mom must take – toxic paint, BPA plastic, artificial this or that, and the ever-growing concerns about our carbon footprint, it’s enough to put pregnancy hormones into overdrive! To alleviate some of the stress, whether you’re shopping for a new mom or if you’re the one making the registry list, we’ve got some great natural baby gift sets that are sure to be a hit!
Baby that Bum: For a mom going all natural, you definitely don’t want synthetic dyes, gels and other artificial materials next to your baby’s sweet bottom. For that reason, many new moms are choosing cloth diapers which are a good option – and a most welcome gift! Don’t know what to buy? Check out thenaturalbabyco.com for a description of the different types of cloth diapers, pros and cons as well as online ordering for either you or the natural mom-to-be in your life.
Breast is Best: If mom is planning to nurse her baby, then a breast-feeding pillow is a must. The Baby Boppy, My Breast Friend and Dr. Brown’s are great options and whether you go Deluxe or Original, breast-feeding is so much more comfortable with one of these. Be sure to buy additional covers so that Mom doesn’t have to worry about the natural accidents that happen with newborns.
Smooth as a Baby’s Bottom: That delicate newborn skin is a gift to be treasured and to protect it, you want the perfect product. Enter Baby Pibu’s Newborn Essentials Gift Set (babypibu.com). With naturally derived and clinically tested products developed by Mom/Dermatologist, Dr. Amy, this gift set is sure to be a favorite! Everything from diaper cream to moisturizer, bath wash to sunscreen, this kit has it all – even specialized products for conditions like cradle cap, eczema, diaper rash and more.
Close to Your Heart: As a new mom, you want to keep your baby close, in an environment where they can be part of you for a feeling of safety and security. What better way than a baby sling or wrap? Any new mom will completely appreciate a Baby Bjorn (babybjorn.com), an ERGObaby carrier (ergobaby.com) or a LILLEBABY wrap (lillebaby.com) that provide several options for carrying a newborn. Or, if you prefer the Mother Earth look, a Maya Wrap is a good way to go – and provides fashionable options for carrying your baby.
For those Pearly Whites: You hear urban legends about moms dabbing their baby’s gums with rum or brandy to help sooth teething woes back in the day, or even OTC products like Orajel. But if you’re looking for natural, environmentally friendly teething solutions, we’ve got a few options for you. Avoid BPA and other worries that come with plastic and opt for different materials. All natural rubber teethers, as well as wooden or organic cotton will not only make a baby’s swollen gums feel better but will make Mom feel good about her product and parenting choices. Easy to find on Amazon.com, this gift will have Mom and Baby smiling.
It’s All about the Ta-Tas: Even with the best pillow, breast-feeding can be a big discomfort for a new mom, but Earth Mama Angel Baby (earthmamaangelbaby.com) has got it covered! In their Breastfeeding Essentials Kit, they have organic, kosher, and non-GMO Milkmaid Tea to promote milk production, as well as natural, soothing nipple cream and gel-free breast packs to ease some of the common discomforts. These products help ensure that the breast-feeding adventure will go well and keep both Mom and Baby healthy.
With so many options out there and a plethora of research on what is and isn’t good for babies, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But with this gift guide as your starting point, the choices abound! Whether you’re shopping for the holiday season or just need the perfect baby gift for a mom-to-be in your life, we are thankful for these and other progressive products and companies that put Baby, Mom – and the world we live in – first.
