Gifts For New Parents
After welcoming a little bundle of joy into the world it may seem that the list of things that parents want or need is endless. Perhaps you are a new parent looking to treat yourself to something, or perhaps you are shopping for a new parent. Either way this is a fantastic collection of classic gifts, innovative gifts and of course, gifts new parents just can’t (or at least shouldn’t) live without!
BabyCook Pro 2X And Accessories by Beaba
If you have new parents on your Christmas shopping list this year, the best gift you can give them is one that will make their lives easier. With the Babycook Pro 2X, they will have everything they need at their fingertips to begin the process of introducing food to their new little one. With dual sides, this wonder machine can steam up to 9 cups of food – everything from raw meats, fruits and vegetables and even rice, pasta and grains with the rice cooker insert – all in as little as 15 minutes. And then with one little slide of the dial, it will puree it to the perfect consistency for your baby at any stage.
Completely BPA, phthalate and PVC-free, and made with two stainless steel water reservoirs, the Babycook Pro 2X is a completely healthy and non-toxic way to make baby’s food at home instead of buying processed baby food.
The new parents on your list will be so grateful for this genius gift that they will be able to use not only when their baby is just learning to eat purees, but also to steam cook her meals well into toddlerhood; keeping all of the valuable nutrients and vitamins in tact during the steaming process. Beaba’s Ellipse Bowl, complete with high sides and a non-skid bottom, along with the super easy-to-grip First Stage Silicone Spoons, makes the perfect add-on to this practical gift!

Mama Koala comes with her baby koala which is also an adorable plush rattle for your giftee’s child to enjoy while she’s awake. Cloud b is “where good sleep begins.” This amazing company partners up with Max’s Love Project, together providing children dealing with cancer with their very own Twilight Turtle.
A baby’s needs are pretty simple: food, sleep, comfort, love.

Filled with plush polyester, and sealed between two layers of 100% cotton, the BadaBoum “sleep sack” provides a safe, comfortable, wearable blanket to help regulate a baby’s temperature on cold winter nights. When she’s sleeping in a BadaBoum Sleeping Bag, she’ll sleep sounder and longer – making this not only a great gift for a new baby, but the BEST gift for her new parents!
With snap enclosures on the shoulders, and a rounded zipper going down the side, BadaBoum sleeping bags are ideal for easy nighttime changings without disturbing your baby any more than you have to. They come in two sizes, and are secure but roomy enough for your little one to roll around and sit up comfortably while wearing them. The Dulcet Sleeping Bag is the ideal unisex bag, but you can also choose from different patterns. And the best part is, BadaBoum will donate $5 from every sleeping bag purchased to help pay for testing and medication for children with rare diseases.

Available in a variety of colors and with a touch of feminine lace trim, this bra is anything but matronly, and it’s a nursing bra you’ll actually enjoy wearing. With two layers – an under layer for hands-free pumping and pull-aside nursing access, and an outer layer to smooth and bring the bra together, this really is the ultimate bra for breastfeeding mamas – especially working moms and moms who exclusively pump.

New parents will love this unique Canvas Handprint Art Set from Pearhead. Each set comes with four vibrantly colored canvases (a blue set and a pink set are available), along with everything you need to create beautiful keepsake handprints with your little one. Simply fill the kit’s tray with the included non-toxic white paint, dip your child’s hand in the paint, and press on the canvas, and create a timeless, personalized memory!
This is a fun, artsy way to preserve your little one’s handprints (or footprints!) and remember how tiny they were. The very best part about this set is that if you make a mistake when stamping your child’s hand on the canvas, you can actually wipe off the paint while it is still wet, and start again!
There are multiple ways to use this set: from making prints of each hand and foot, to making a hand print on one canvas per year to show your child’s growth. This is truly a distinctive, special gift that new parents will treasure for years to come.
We all know how sensitive and fragile a new baby’s skin is, and we want to be sure we’re using appropriate products to help protect and nourish that skin. This year, stick some Sebamed Baby products in the stocking and you can rest assured that your baby’s skin will be glowing all winter long. From body washes and body lotions to diaper creams and sunscreens, Sebamed Baby products are made with high-quality, yet gentle ingredients that are designed to preserve the skin’s normal pH levels.
5.5 is the normal pH level of skin, and in order to protect your skin so it can protect you, you should avoid using products that are a different pH level from your skin. This is especially important when it comes to using products on the most delicate skin of babies and children. All of Sebamed Baby’s products are a 5.5 pH level, which keeps skin healthy and protected, and gives you peace of mind during bath time.
