Note by Angela – My sister Paula wrote these reviews for us and my Goddaughter, Lilyann, is our beautiful tester-baby. Isn’t she adorable? (Shameless Auntie brag!) Huge thanks to Paula for her new-mom insights on these fun, trendy, or classic gift ideas.
Stocking Stuffers for New Moms or Babies
The oogiebear, unlike the traditional bulb syringe, is small and easy to clean; it doesn’t leave my child’s nose red and irritated after using it. The oogiebear is also great to get ear wax out of their tiny ears. I recommend the oogiebear to every mother I know and can’t imagine trying to clean my daughter’s nose and ears without it. This was a life saver for me.
Galt Ambi Toy: Tommy Toot
Tommy Toot is an adorable little musical man; he will whistle with you as you go. Just one blow into his hat and your baby will be smiling from ear to ear. Like an old-fashioned train whistle with a modern colorful facelift. I wanted some of the classic-style toys for the baby and the Ambi First toys I got to review are just that – classic styles with fun bright colors and well-designed modern twists.
Galt Ambi Toy: Twin Rattle
The smiling sunshine twin rattle is very bright and unique in its design. The twin rattle is great at helping your baby’s coordination skills and not only brightening up their day but yours also with faint sound of the rattle mixed with laughter. Dad will even like turning these mini gears.
Skip * Hop: Stroll and Go Phone Tether
Stroll and Go Phone Tether is a safe way for kids to play with your phone while you get errands done. The phone tether fits most smart phones and the built-in clear screen protector will keep little fingerprints and anything else that might be on their hands off your screen while keeping them entertained. I must say, my personal desire, however, is for my baby to engage with people and the sights and sounds around us, rather than become part of the electronics, screen-loving era too soon. I’m more likely to use it to keep track of my phone for myself while pushing the baby around the mall, zoo, or park in her stroller so it won’t fall out of the stroller cup holder and I can easily reach it with all my hands busy with baby.
Under The Tree Christmas Presents for Babies and Postpartum Moms
Babi Corolle: Miss Pink Star & Blanket
Miss Pink Star is a wonderful eye catching babi doll set that is safe for all ages. The soft body and blanket makes your baby feel safe and comfortable. Corolle Babi dolls also have a hint of vanilla which smells heavenly unlike most other dolls that smell like plastic.
Babi Corolle: Birth Set with Pink Elf
I love how soft Miss Pink Elf is and how easy she is for my daughter to hold onto. The pink bib is adorable and add the BPA free teether makes the Corolle birth set the perfect gift for all parents with little ones. Consider it an ideal shower gift or for holiday gift giving. Soft rules with this gift, and like all Babi Corolle dolls, you enjoy the scent of vanilla, not plastics.
Baby Care Basics Book Review
The book, Baby Care Basics by Dr. Jeremy Friedman and Dr. Natasha Saunders, is very organized and is easy to find the answers to any questions that are going to arise as an expecting parent or a parent with young children. This book is a must have and an excellent resource for parents who appreciate the traditional modern medical approach to birth and parenting.
Galt Ambi Toy: Farm Playnest
Ambi Farm Playnest is a great way to stimulate your baby’s brain and get them interacting with toys. The farm playnest is designed with bright colors, a soft, round tube-like design holds their interest from all sides. Toys also dangle from above your baby’s head, as well as the interaction through the ring design such as the lamb’s soft woolly body feeling like wool to the pig’s pink nose catching their attention. Babies universally love animals, and parents also enjoy the bright farm scenes.
Organic Gifts for New Moms and Babies
Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics: A Little Something For Mama-To-Be
I love the ginger smell that the A Little Something for Mama-To-Be pregnancy kit offers; along with it’s all natural organic appeal. The Happy Mama Spray and Organic Wellness Morning Tea are both helpful at addressing an upset stomach. Quench your thirst for something healthy with this lovely tea. The Happy Mama Body Wash and Butter leave my body feeling refreshed and soft; just as with Earth Mama’s Natural Stretch Oil. Every expecting Mama needs some pampering.
Merino Kids: Raspberry Sleep Bag
Merino Kids Sleep Bags are fantastic for babies’ age zero-to-two years old. For your heavenly soft baby you want something that is just as soft and with this all natural organic sleep bag you’ll have just that. The design of the sleep bag allows you to transfer Baby from bed to stroller to car seat without having to remove them from the cozy sleep bag because of the loop included as part of the sleep bag design. No disturbed sleep for them, and no crankiness for you to deal with.
