6 Things New Moms Love and Need: Gift Ideas for New Moms

  1. Comfy sleepwear for new moms.
    Late-night feedings feels much better in nice jammies. “I loved my cotton nursing pajamas that I got in both black and pink,” says Sherlyn Pang Luedtke, a mother of one from West Hills, California. “I was able to breastfeed without having to strip down, and they were so cozy.”
  2. Nursing pads for nursing mothers.
    Avoid wet-shirt disasters by stockpiling some to stick in your bra; pack extras in the glove compartment.
  3. A loaded MP3 player.
    Put your favorite tunes or a great new novel on your iPod and you’ll be raring to get back to the rocking chair. Better yet, dock your MP3 player to a speaker so baby can enjoy the soothing tunes, too. 
  4. A food delivery service.
    After having twins, Julie Nations, of Framingham, Massachusetts gave up on going to the grocery store for a few months. As she says, “Signing up for Peapod delivery (a service that brings groceries to your door) wasn’t that much more expensive and it was a lifesaver, both in time and sanity!” 
  5. Some good shapewear for postpartum body.
    Spanx and other body slimmers aren’t just for squeezing into a date-night dress. “My mom gave me one after my first child was born,” says Shannon Taylor, a mother of five from Ames, Iowa. “It sucked in my stomach and helped me feel put-together when I went out.” 
  6. A portable coffee mug.
    A cup or two of joe won’t affect your breast milk or wire your baby, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. “Hot coffee made me happy because I was sleeping so little, but it would end up cold because the baby kept me so busy,” recalls Becky Paulzine, a mom of one in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The lifesaver: a spill-proof travel mug she carried around the house, so she could have her coffee and drink it, too.
