Have you been searching for the perfect gift for what seems like forever? I’m sharing the best gifts for new moms that they’ll actually love and rave about. These items were gifted to me. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Sometimes I’m convinced motherhood is a farce. I mean we conceive a baby with our partner, carry them for 9 months if we’re lucky enough, and then when the babies are born they’re the ones that are showered with all of the gifts. But where are the gifts for us moms? As soon as baby is born we get put on the back burner and no longer receive all the nice things. The only time we’re gifted anything is on Mother’s Day, our birthday and Christmas.
Moms deserve gifts too both before and after the baby is born. Think about all the gifts we could be given to make pregnancy easier, childbirth a little more bearable, and postpartum much easier.

Moms can use them for sleeping, nursing or even just resting.
