Gift Ideas for Babies and New Parents
Our youngest was born in December right before the holidays. He’s our only child born in the fall/winter time. This year he turned two so finding the right gifts for him was easy but his first year it wasn’t quite as easy to pick a gift for a newborn baby. I’d like to share some gift ideas for babies and new parents.
Tommee Tippee Pump and Go Starter Set
I didn’t breast feed all my children, only one of my kids took to it and I have to say that pumping was an absolute challenge for me. The Tommee Tippee Pump and Go Starter Set is perfect for breastfeeding mothers who want to make the process simple and super efficient. What I loved most about this set is that the storage bags can also double as feeding bottles. No more wasted milk, which we all know is very precious. These bags are compatible with most breast pumps and can make the process of pumping easier, especially to get mom some free time so someone else can feed baby.

Tommee Tippee Everyday Pacifiers
Each of my children had their own feelings towards pacifiers. Two of four children sucked their fingers so they didn’t use them at all. My breast feeding son didn’t use one often but our youngest loved having his. His favorite of all time were the Tommee Tippee everyday pacifiers. He took to them instantly and we would always have to travel with a two pack. These worked so great for our youngest that we recommend them to all our friends and family.

NeoTop Formula Dispenser
Formula can be very pricey. My oldest had allergies and required a special formula that was very expensive. Late night feedings were a big mess. I would always make a mess trying to scoop the formula into the bottle. Some ended up on the counter or on the outside of the bottle. The scoop would get wet and formula would get stuck on there. Neonatologist Dr Sami Ismail invented the NeoTop to help make formula dispensing easier. With the NeoTop parents can rest assured that their baby is getting for right amount of formula into each bottle. It also helps with preventing the spread germs into your baby’s formula. To use the NeoTop simply pour the whole can or pouch of formula into the dispenser, when you’re ready to use flip the top and twist to get the exact amount of formula as one scoop for making two ounces of formula. When it’s time to clean disassemble into five parts and wash with your hands or in the dishwasher.

Diono Buggy Tech Tote
I have to admit that I wish I had the Diono Buggy Tech Tote when I was pushing strollers around with my kids. It seemed like I never had enough storage space, especially when shopping at the mall. The under carriage worked great however it was filled with the baby bag. The Diono Buggy Tech Tote is the new media solution that keeps mom connected and organized while baby and kids stay entertained. Simply and easily slide your smartphone into the protective touchscreen-compatible sleeve to quickly answer text or calls while pushing a stroller though the park. Slide your tablet into the back sleeve and start a video to keep your baby entertained while riding rear-facing. For older kids, simply zip off the removable tablet sleeve so your child can play in the stroller while mom enjoys a moment of peace. Stay organized with the customizable and removable dividers; there is even an insulating pouch for a water bottle. Quickly remove from stroller to use as a tote to take with you. The design fits most smartphones and tablets, and any stroller configuration from two-handle to a handle bar stroller. This tote is genius and I highly recommend it. I know it’s a product that will get lots of use especially when out shopping.
