Your favorite new mom will look sleek, even if she’s sleep-deprived, toting baby essentials in this durable, water-resistant diaper bag. It’s got lots of pockets for everything the little one needs, including a removable changing pad.
This is not your mother’s highchair! This durable wooden chair can be easily configured with the protective back and rail to fit a newly sitting 6-month-old and can be adjusted to fit up to a full-size toddler. It’s ergonomically correct and comes with a seat cushion and detachable tray.

This no-fuss, convertible stroller is the Cadillac of baby strollers. It’s got everything your favorite new mom needs including the ability to grow with the family and accommodate up to three children.
Snuggle Me Organic Lounger
This portable lounger is the perfect snuggling companion for a new mom. It helps keep baby in place with a calming, hugging sensation. It’s great for tummy time and travel.
Both new mom and dad will enjoy carrying baby in this lightweight and comfortable carrier. The structured bucket seat will keep baby ergonomically seated while keeping both parent and baby cool. They may even feel a certain kinship with marsupials on their first visit to the zoo!
Baby Food Maker
Organic, plant-based foods are all the rage for adults as well as babies. This steam-heating system functions as a steamer, blender, warmer and defroster so your new mom can prepare healthy, delicious baby meals in 20 minutes or less.
Luxe Baby Blanket
Don’t discount the importance of a cozy blankie! This plush, satin trimmed blanket serves as a handy accessory for snuggling, relaxing in the stroller, or playing on the floor. Choose from seven baby-friendly colors.
This collapsible bathtub is perfect for bath and shower stalls. It includes a temperature-sensitive plug so new moms can check at a glance if the water is too hot. And, the foldable design makes it super-practical for both storage and travel.
Luxe Hooded Towel
I remember the first time I discovered the existence of the hooded bath towel after my daughter was born. It was a total game-changer for bath time! This snuggly faux-fur wrap helps keep baby cozy and warm while getting dry.
3-Pack Muslin Swaddles
I don’t think new moms can appreciate the power of a good swaddle, until they’re trying to put baby to sleep. These lightweight muslin cloths come in a variety of patterns and are perfect for wrapping baby, or for use as a burp cloth or stroller blanket.
