Almost all new moms would yearn for the following basic but highly deprived things: sleep, a hot shower and a decent meal.

For Mother’s Day, gifts like chocolateswine, or flowers would probably make it to the top 3 list of most people.

However, if you have a new mom in the family, you might want to consider gifts that can make the baby safe and comfortable, and the mom sane and happy!

Here’s a list of 3 such sanity-saving gifts that would improve the quality of life for the new mom:

A glider or rocker. The rhythmic motion of a rocker or glider calms some babies and helps them nod off.   Most importantly, it frees up the new mommy’s tired hands!

Tip: Always look for durable, solid materials (such as wood); supportive back cushions and padded arm cushions that hide stains. A mechanism to lock when needed is ideal.  Always test the rocker / glider in the store first and when choosing a fabric, consider the look of the nursery to make sure there’s not too much of a mismatch.

Soft baby carrier. Baby carriers are great for keeping mom’s hands free while keeping body contact with their little ones.  We recommend against sling carriers because babies can end up in positions that interfere with their breathing.  Backpack carriers are also not appropriate for newborns.

When you’re selecting a carrier, check the fasteners to make sure they are easy to adjust.  Do also take note of the minimum and maximum weight limit of the carriers to ensure you baby fits.

Play yard. During those first few sleepless months it’s difficult for Mom to catch a break. Play pens serve as a safe place to put a child down for a few moments.

A basic playpen is lightweight and folds compactly.  As such, a playpen can be taken along on a family vacation and used as a portable bed. A word of caution: For overnight use, the playpen should be used with a tight-fitting sheet and not a regular crib sheet

  • Glue the colour border to your photo and glue it to the notebook.
  • Write a small note at the bottom of the pictures or next to it to personalized the notebook.
  • Leave a few pages in between the photographs so your mum can use it as a notebook in future.
