The Best Gifts New Moms Never Knew They Needed

Every expectant mother knows the items that everyone puts on their baby shower registry. Diapers, clothes, bath time supplies, bottles, pacifiers and more all make this list. But what are the items she may not realize will be so helpful in the first few weeks of her baby’s life? To help, we’ve put together this essential list of the best gifts new moms never knew they needed!
  • Boppy® Newborn Lounger: This baby shower gift is a lifesaver for any new mom! It’s the perfect place to set new baby down, freeing up mom's hands for other things! The unique shape is designed to gently cradle the newborn, with fabric that wipes clean in seconds.

  • Gift cards to pamper mom: Nearly all baby shower gifts will be for the baby, which is to be expected. What about the new mom? Treat her to a spa gift card, for example, which she’ll greatly appreciate!
  • Boppy® Infant and Toddler Head Support​: Help the mom-to-be elevate and cradle baby’s head in comfy support with this unique cut-out design. Use it on-the-go in the stroller or while at home in a bouncer. The generous padding comes in fashionable prints with all-over comfort.
  • Starter library: The mom-to-be will likely receive a handful of books at her baby shower. A great way to encourage this is to help her create a starter library! If you host the baby shower, ask guests to bring their favorite baby book in lieu of a card. They can write thoughtful messages on the inside cover, which mom and baby will treasure in the years to come.
  • Boppy® Tummy Time: This colorful tummy time prop will come in so handy with a new baby! Keep tummy time comfy and fun, complete with a mini Boppy® pillow attached to engaging toys.
  • Extra changing pad liners: Trust us, you will burn through these in the first few weeks!  Keep several on hand for any diaper emergencies. It’s also a good item to have a few of, as you can keep them in every room where you may end up changing baby.
  • Boppy® Shopping Cart Cover: The Boppy® Shopping Cart Cover is perfect for on-the-go moms! Your baby will be safe and protected from messes in the Boppy Luxe Shopping Cart and Restaurant High Chair Cover while you are out and about.
