Best Gifts for a Newborn Baby

Posted by Anneliese Lawton

After having three newborns in my house, I’ve come to learn which products are helpful to have around the house (and which products we’ll actually use). As a veteran mom, I’ve pulled some of my favorite gifts for newborn babies. But don’t forget, parents always need a little love, too! Coffee and a warm meal are always welcome. 

Wee Gallery – Little Naturalist Gift Set, Baby Animals

Wee Gallery is one of my favorite brands for new babies, and their Little Naturalist Gift Set features some of their most popular toys: Organic Penguin Teether, top selling Art Cards, and Organic Cotton Muslin Swaddle. These high-contrast toys are designed to stimulate a baby's senses and to elicit joy and wonder. They are developmentally appropriate from birth to eighteen months, so they will grow with your baby.

This sweet bunny from Wee Gallery is made for cuddling and soothing. Its high contrast patterns, taggy feet, and soft sherpa make it easy for a baby to love right from day one. Ribbons Cuddle Bunny can be your baby’s sleepy friend, used to comfort and cuddle anytime. The bold patterns are visually stimulating and the textured body and embroidered bunny face provide tactile experiences as your baby grows. 


Wee Gallery – Organic Muslin Swaddles

An eco-friendly organic muslin swaddle always makes a baby, mom, and the planet happy! These soft wraps are generously sized to be versatile enough as a swaddle blanket or stroller cover, and in the car seat, crib, or changing table. Babies will love looking at the hand-illustrated high-contrast patterns, and snuggling in the soft organic cotton.

Babies will love the warm womb-like feel of the Cloudnest Anti-Colic Newborn Lounger from Babymoov. With a built-in heating pad filled with organic flaxseeds, the lounger naturally soothes a baby by mimicking the cozy environment of the mother’s womb and of being held. Every baby and parent will love this gift – because there is nothing better than a calm baby. 


The Upseat – Baby Floor & Booster Seat with Tray

Because you want what’s best for your baby and they learn to sit and explore their surroundings. The Upseat ergonomic baby seat was developed with the guidance of leading physical therapists to encourage proper upright posture, and to be safe for developing hips. There is no other seat like this on the market, and is perfect for ages 4 months to two-years. Available in pink, blue, and grey.
