Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching and while it is a day to celebrate all moms, it is especially memorable for one group in particular: new (or expectant) mothers! (Yes, we are adding in expectant mothers to that group because those on a cusp of motherhood also deserve the spoils of Mother’s Day.)
On average, there are around 360,000 babies born each day, according to the UN. And since a new mom’s life revolves around the baby — Are they sleeping enough? Was that a burp? Why will they not stop crying? — it makes Mother’s Day (and appreciating moms) even more important!
And just because a baby is too tiny to buy her mom a material gift or draw a card does not mean mom doesn’t deserve one. So, for those reading, it is time to pick up the slack.
For the Expecting Mom
Help mom float through the rest of pregnancy unscathed with this pool float from Peanut — the friendship matchmaking app for new mothers. Pool party season has arrived, and we don’t want anyone to feel left out! Plus, this float, with its built-in hole, allows for pregnant women who prefer to sleep on their stomach to experience that feeling again.
For the Ambitious Mom
What does this onesie say about baby? That they are well-read? That they will get into the top college of their choice? That the mom is intentional in her parenting? Or maybe it says none of these things and is perfect in its own right — and it does not hurt that it would make for a cute photo op.
For the Mom Who Needs Her Baby to Sleep
A chic wrap that promises to reduce infant crying by 43 percent? Now that is a gift if we ever heard of one. Designed to help mom get both physically and emotionally close to her baby, Solly Baby wrap is perfect for the new mom. These wraps are crafted to hold up to 25 lbs and are made of certified Lenzing Modal — an eco-friendly fabric garnered from the pulp of Austrian beechwood trees.
