BABY BREEZA – with the Baby Breeza, you can make a warm, formula bottle instantly!  Perfect for those middle of the night feedings.

BABY MONITOR – be able to hear and see your baby without having to go into the room to check on them.

BABY SWING – lull your baby to sleep and get some much needed hands-free time with a swing to rock your baby and lull them to sleep with music and vibrations.

BABY WRAP – when baby doesn’t want to go down in their crib or swing, a baby wrap can still let the new mom get some stuff done while soothing baby.

BIBS – perfect for nursing babies, bottle fed babies, and babies who tend to spit up.  Keep those outfits looking clean and dry with a set of bibs.

BOTTLES – whether you are nursing or bottle feeding your baby, a bottle can come in handy no matter your situation.

BOTTLE WARMER – no baby enjoys drinking cold milk.  With a bottle warmer you can make sure that your baby’s bottle is the perfect temperature.

BREAST PUMP – when you are a nursing mom, there will be times when you cannot be with your baby during a feeding.  With a breast pump, you can pump when you can and keep the breast milk for those times you can’t be with baby.

CAR SEAT – one of the most important baby accessories!  If the parent already has a baby car seat, buy the next size up!

CRIB SHEETS – babies spit up and poop A LOT! So chances are those crib sheets are going to get dirty often and will need to be washed.  Having extra sets around is a lifesaver during the middle of the night.

CRIB MATTRESS PROTECTOR – great for keeping the crib mattress clean and dry with a waterproof crib mattress protector.

DIAPERS – Whether you will use disposable or cloth diapers, parents will be going through LOTS of diapers, especially during those first few months.  Purchasing a few different sizes allows the parents to be prepared for growth spurts.

DIAPER GENIE – a diaper genie is a great way to store those dirty diapers and keep the smell out of the nursery.

ELECTRONIC THERMOMETER – an ear or forehead thermometer will help the new parents check on their baby without waking them from sleep.

GLIDING ROCKING CHAIR – moms and dads everywhere will get lots of use out of a gliding rocking chair, especially during those late night feedings.

HOODED BATH TOWELS – hooded bath towels are a great gift idea!  Perfect for keeping baby warm and dry after a bath.

JUMPAROO – once babies start to move, a jumparo is perfect.  It allows them to be active and mom can rest assured they aren’t getting into anything they are supposed to.

NOISE MACHINE – a simple sound machine is great to have in a baby’s room. White noise will cover any loud or annoying noises that might wake up baby.

NOSE ASPIRATOR – for those times when baby’s nose is stuffy, an aspirator is a great tool.

NURSING PILLOW – a nursing pillow helps nursing moms hold their babies more comfortably.  And for those mom’s who’ve had a c-section, they can be a lifesaver!

ONESIES – babies will need a lot of these, as newborn diapers don’t always hold what they are supposed to.

RECEIVING BLANKETS – great for snuggling with baby, wrapping them up for nighttime and keeping them warm outside.

ROCKING BASSINET – a rocking bassinet is perfect for babies who aren’t ready for their crib and will help soothe them to sleep.

SLEEPERS – choose an adorable baby sleeper as a gift.  You can NEVER have too many!

STROLLER – strollers are perfect for taking babies out on walks or to use in the mall.

STUFFED TEDDY BEAR – every baby needs a stuffed teddy bear.  In fact, it is one of the most purchased baby gifts ever.

SWADDLE BLANKET – swaddle blankets are great for those babies who need to be wrapped up snug to sleep.

TEETHING TOYS – teething can start as early as 4 months!  Teething toys will help soothe babies gums during those tough times.

WIPES – wipes are great for more than just dirty bums.  Wipes work great at disinfecting shopping carts, wiping sticky hands and dirty faces.
