If you know someone with a newborn, why not treat them to one of these useful, helpful or just plain lovely gifts for new mums?
Let’s be honest. There are very few times in life more draining than the first hours, days and weeks after a new baby is born. Add exhaustion, rush of postnatal hormones and birth recovery into the mix and it can all feel rather overwhelming.
It goes without saying that at the top of every new mum’s list is a happy, healthy baby. Second is probably a good night’s sleep but since that isn’t something you can buy online, how about treating the new parents in your life to something that will make their lives a little less stressful?
Little Green Sheep Organic Moses Basket & Mattress
Available for £79.95 from JoJo Maman Bébé
Just because this Moses basket is cheaper, there are no features on the Moses basket that aren’t good quality and it also looks great. If you’re getting ready for your first baby and don’t want to break the bank, this is a fantastic choice. The basket creates a natural sleeping space for your little one.
We love this because of its beautiful knitted look cover. The design is simple and minimalistic and does what it needs to. More importantly, the basket comes with a high-quality mattress that is chemical free and safe for your baby. We think this is a great option if you’re looking for your first Moses basket.
Please note the stand is sold separately.
Floral Floppy Sun Hat
As well as the blooming beautiful design, this fancy floral hat is specially shaped to stay on heads. Perfect if you (or your child) is partial to losing items. It ties neatly under the chin and has a cotton lining for comfort. The print is designed to match with other JoJo pieces so you can nail that colour-coordinated look with ease.
This nursery rhyme and storytelling machine is the latest toy to tempt kids away from screen-based play.
Supplied with five discs to get started and plenty of other packs covering all manner of content, this wi-fi-free machine is multilingual too.
There are eight languages kids can learn as they’re also entertained. We wager parents will be caught with this after hours.
