Whether it’s their first time raising a baby or not, it doesn’t matter. Motherhood is amazing but can be a lot of pressure for women. Luckily, we live in an age where the most helpful items mothers appreciate are listed in two lists (this is part two!).
So here are 27 more gifts new mothers will appreciate no matter what.

If you’re nursing, you’ll be doing it what seems like ALL the time. Unfortunately it can still sometimes be uncomfortable to feed in public places nowadays (and you WILL want to leave the house). A good feeding shawl will help to keep baby focused on food and strangers from having an opinion on what you’re doing. There’s also no need for it to look like a nursing scarf either. There are many fashionable options for a scarf today like this from EmmaMoe
“Yes it’s a pillow, and you already have pillows, but this type of pillow has so many uses you’ll find you wondered how you managed without one. Nursing means holding baby in a certain position for a long time. That position is rarely comfortable unless you support them. A boppy really helps keep your child in the right position without straining your arms and back.
They’re also great for tummy time, they work as a baby floor seat and even in bed to support moms knees!”

“Hygiene is the most important concern while rearing a newborn baby. You have to keep the atmosphere hygienic, so that it can’t affect the health of your baby.

When it comes to gifts, I always suggest gifting a book. Books are great companions at any time of your life. New mothers usually have very less or no knowledge regarding how to handle the initial days. This book is a complete guide regarding how to take care of yourself, how to handle the loved ones, how to manage the baby, how to manage your time, etc.
Nursing a baby often cause sore nipples, which can irritate a new mother. Since she doesn’t have any experience, she might never think of buying a cream for herself. It could be an excellent gift for her. You can also add a few essential oils or holistic shower creams.

When it comes to carrying your baby, it is not only difficult for new mothers but every mother. During the initial days, you must ensure a safe posture for the baby. A baby pod can solve this issue for sure.

“It’s the BioFit 360 CBD Sample pack, and yes, it’s legal in all 50 states – considered a supplement, not a drug. It contains sample sizes of Relief tincture for pain and inflammation, Relax gummies for anxiety, Revive tincture for energy and focus, BioPet tincture for anxiety, pain and inflammation in our four-legged friends, and, perhaps best of all (it’s what everyone loves most) our BioFit 360 topical cream for pain. These products do not contain THC, and do not come from the marijuana plant, but rather from the industrial hemp plant.
Not only can mom’s use this themselves and on their furry friend, but also bring it as hostess gift (more original than a bottle of wine or candle), a great in-law gift (people over 50 can always use a pain reliever), and a great stocking stuffer for other mom friends (busy moms especially love the gummies and the Revive tincture). These products are non-addictive and have no adverse reactions to other medication.”
