New Mom Holiday Gift Guide
This book is a must-have for any new mother. The Fourth Trimester is a guide through the postpartum journey, which is unfortunately fairly murky for many of us. The author is a doula, postpartum consultant, yoga teacher, body worker, and women’s health care advocate. She uses her experience to provide a roadmap for everything from facilitating postpartum healing to carrying your baby comfortably to exploring the complex emotions of transitioning into motherhood.

One of the most stressful parts of new parenthood is listening to your baby cry and not knowing how to help them. Loop’s noise-reducing ear plugs can remove some of the stress from this situation, by lowering the volume of your baby’s cries while still allowing you to hear them. If your friend is sensitive to noise or is just having a tough time adjusting to her crying baby, these ear plugs would be a lifesaver of a holiday gift.
Find them on Amazon starting at $17.96
I started using this neck massager long before I got pregnant to help with tension headaches, and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The heated massage nodes really make a difference, and I love having the option to turn the speed up or down and reverse the direction of the nodes. This neck massager is perfect for pregnancy headaches and for tight neck and shoulder muscles from breastfeeding and holding a baby.

Sleep is a luxury in any newborn parent’s life. Help your new mama friend get the most out of her ZZZs with a weighted blanket. The pressure that a weighted blanket provides helps the nervous system move into rest and digest mode, allowing for deeper, more restful sleep. This one comes in two different sizes, and you can choose between six weights, from 10 to 25 pounds.
