Meanwhile, a new mom can rest peacefully with the knowledge that their tyke will be safe from the elements when the temperature drops.

Crawling about can take a toll on a child’s knees. As junior begins to explore the world more and more, new moms won’t always be able to protect them from injury. Cute, convenient gifts like the baby knee protectors are the ultimate compromise: moms can give their baby a chance to roam about while still keeping them safe from unnecessary wear and tear. The cute peaches on each knee protector are just a sweet bonus.

Moms can watch on proudly as their precious child masters the art of maneuvering the bottle and acquiring their next meal.
Pop and Sit Portable Highchair
Having a baby doesn’t mean abandoning your interests! For new moms worried about becoming trapped at home, the Portable Highchair is a can’t-miss gift. Now moms can show their offspring the joys of experiencing nature. While they probably won’t be heading out on any intensive camping expeditions, mom and baby can enjoy the tranquility of a picnic in the park or a fun backyard BBQ in comfort and in style.
Hushamok Okoa Baby Hammock
Sometimes, the best gift you can give to a new mom is the tools to drift her baby off to sleep. Is there anything more calming than a gentle swing in a luxuriously comfortable hammock? Not as far as a baby in concerned! When she places her beloved in this relaxing oasis, mom can, at last, enjoy some peace and quiet as junior at last slips into sleep for the next few hours.

Double Electric Breast Feeding Pumps
A baby’s got to eat! Unfortunately, an infant’s feeding schedule can be erratic, especially in its first few months.

With the gift of a portable Chicco Hook-On Chair, you can help bring this fantasy to life. The Chicco Chair is comfortable and safe for baby, and the secure fastens can slip onto any table without scratching the surface.
Shopping Cart Baby High Chair

The calligraphy messages featured on each segment are appropriately adorable and make for the perfect finishing touch to the frame.

Infantino Squeeze Station Baby Food Maker
If you are a new mommy with a tiny fussy toddler, you know that baby food can get prohibitively expensive. You might, in fact, be wondering why is it so expensive since it’s just purée after all: well, we don’t know either, but if you have taken to making your own purée to save a few pennies, the infantino squeeze station is perfect gift for you. Not only will it be much cheaper and tastier than store-bought ones, but also it will keep your kid happy, full and healthy, since you babies will be able to eat as they play!
Squirt Egg Bathtub Water Toys
Your entire life change when you have children, as babies become absolute your first priority, even before yourself. You love for babies makes you want to give them everything they might ever need or want( even if they want the stars, I know many of you are doing this). However, there are times when your little ones refuse to take a bath. Well, for those who have no ideas what to do, some extra cute baby bath toys are the perfect gifts for new moms to keep babies entertained while bathing them.
Utensil Set and Plate for Toddlers
If you have ever dealt with a picky toddler, you know how insanely difficult it is to get them to eat something they have already decided is yucky: no matter how much you insist, how many “trial bites” you give it yourself or how much ketchup you use, the toddler will keep insisting they want Mac and cheese instead. However, we have found a neat little gift for new moms that distracts toddlers enough that you will be able to sneak some bites past them: the eating utensils. It will help your kid develop excellent motor skills, and they will be so entertained creating a mashed potato dam that they won’t even notice what they’ve just bitten into is broccoli!
A woman’s transition into motherhood is an incredible journey and one that is well worth celebrating. There were multiple visits to the doctor, baby showers, choosing the right name, parenting classes and general joy whenever the baby issue comes into the conversation.
When a new mom or a mom-to-be tells you that they’re expecting, the normal response is to mark the news with a heartfelt “congratulations” and prepare some useful, unique gifts. If you’ve ever found it’s not easy to find the best gift ideas, especially for those of us who have never played the role of a parent, hope you will get some unique gifts for new moms in this list.
