2. Cribsheet: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting
FOR THE MOM WITH QUESTIONS
Here’s one of the scary truths about parenting — there’s no right answer. Here’s one of the freeing truths about parenting — there’s no right answer. Parenting books can cause guilt and shame because of their hard stance on everyday topics, but Brown University economics professor Emily Oster has written a book series that helps parents make informed decisions and weigh their options with facts and data. The second book in her series, Cribsheet, deals with the birth to preschool phase, i.e., a time that comes with so many questions and so much judgment. Oster helps parents, including new moms, frame their decisions in the best way for their family, which allows them to find viable solutions to everyday issues, like when and if to nurse, when and how to potty train and more.

The pillow is uniquely curved to support the user’s neck and shoulders, helping to relax sore muscles that have been carrying a baby all day.

Moms who love to match and be comfortable will fall in love with the super-soft pajamas from Mori.

SPY received a sample of the Mori pajamas for babies and the high-quality organic cotton and bamboo fabric is gentle on both baby and mom’s skin and feels cool and comfortable.Buy: Mama Ribbed Pajamas by Mori $90.50
19. Ecoriginals Diapers and Wipes
BEST FOR THE ECO-FRIENDLY MAMA
Many diapers and wipes advertise themselves as eco-friendly, but most still end up clogging landfills. Anyone who has spent time with a baby knows that one little bum can result in a lot of diaper waste, which is why we were excited when the popular Australian brand Ecoriginals launched in the US in late 2021. Considered the world’s ‘greenest diapers,’ Ecoriginals is a plastic-neutral wipe and diaper company that boasts a 90% plant-based diaper, much higher than competitors (the brand plans on being 100 percent plant-based by 2023). Little ones can be in Ecoriginals throughout their diaper journey with newborn sizes up to junior training pants. SPY tried the diapers and wipes from Ecoriginals, and we loved the absorbency and softness of the diapers and that none of the products caused any skin irritation.Buy: Ecoriginals Diapers and Wipes $39.99
20. Organic Oat Milk Powder and Unsweetened Almond Milk Concentrate Bundle by JOI
FOR THE MOM WHO HAS GONE DAIRY-FREE
For new moms who are breastfeeding, digestion issues with their little ones can often result in moms going dairy-free. This can feel overwhelming for those new to the dairy-free world. One of the easiest changes to make is incorporating milk alternatives. These alternatives from JOI offer delicious nut and oat milk concentrates. The plant and planet-safe non-dairy options are gentle on the baby’s tummy and tasty for mom.Buy: Organic Oat Milk Powder and Unsweetened Almond Milk Concentrate $36.08 (orig. $39.57) 9% OFF
21. Omnom Chocolate Bar Trio
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES CHOCOLATE
It doesn’t get much more delicious for moms with a sweet tooth than Omnom chocolates. The Icelandic company is now selling its bars of decadence in North America and offer a variety of flavors that moms will not want to share (coffee and milk, we are looking at you). After giving these a try, we were blown away by the taste and the beautiful packaging, which makes these a great gift option. They’re almost too pretty to eat. Almost.Buy: Omnom Chocolate Bar Trio $29.38
22. Cookie Cups The Unicorn Kids Baking Set
BEST FOR THE SECOND-TIME MOM
Second-time moms need all the pampering and TLC as first-time moms, and maybe even a bit more. Not only are they caring for a newborn, but they are also taking care of a toddler or young child. Carving out time for an older child can feel daunting when you’re already exhausted, which is why we like the kits from Cookie Cups. The company makes a variety of food sets geared towards kids, including unicorn cupcakes, pizza making, rainbow ravioli, and more. After trying it at home, we were impressed with the quality of the ingredients and accessories. The sets come with everything little bakers will need and make it easy for moms to spend quality time with their older children with minimal cleanup and a snack at the end. Never underestimate the power of snacks.
23. Drumi Sheets
FOR THE MOM WHO NEEDS BETTER SHEETS
Describing a new mom as “tired” feels redundant. All moms are tired, especially new moms. Give the gift of a good night’s sleep with a new set of sheets from Drumi. After sleeping on these sheets firsthand, we love that they get softer with each wash. Not only will a new mom appreciate a soft place to land at the end of a long day, but having an extra set of sheets means not having to do laundry in the middle of the night when the baby spits up/pees/poops on the sheets. Not if, but when.Buy: Drumi Sheets $150.00 For Queen Set
24. Mama’s Kit from Curie
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES SCENTS
Curie has designed a Mama’s Kit just in time for Mother’s Day, which includes one of their gorgeous scented candles and a bottle of moisturizing body oil. We’re big fans of Curie at SPY and know moms will appreciate the clean-burning candle, available in White Tea, Orange Neroli and Grapefruit Cassis, as well as the matching body oil, which is uber-moisturizing.Buy: Mama’s Kit from Curie $58.00
25. Talli Baby
BEST FOR TRACKING BABY
New moms will quickly learn that the approximately 1,289 doctor’s appointments their little one has within the first year of their birth will include a complete rundown of their newborn’s pooping, peeing, eating and sleeping cycles. A notepad works for about one day, which is why we love the Talli Baby complete 360 system. SPY tried the ingenious and small unit, which has a clearly labeled button for anything parents need to record, including the length of a feeding time (there’s even voice control for a hands-free option). All data is sent directly to an app, making it easy for partners and caregivers to record necessary info without accessing mom’s phone because mom is sleeping. Let mom sleep.
26. Silicone Baby Bib 3-Pack
BEST FOR TRYING SOLID FOODS
If your new mom isn’t totally new anymore, and their baby is trying out solid(ish) foods for the first time, a silicone bib is a game-changer. These are easy to wash, comfortable for the baby to wear and have built-in troughs for catching lost food that you can just dump back out on the baby’s high chair for more efficient feeding. They’re 100% waterproof and super adjustable in the back via snaps that are easy to take on and off. The set comes in three colors, all of which fit babies between six and 72 months in age.
27. Sassy Store Stacks of Circles STEM Learning Toy
BEST BABY TOY
This baby toy is designed for sensory play with various colors, textures and sounds built in. It’s got a straight post with different ring sizes for strengthening baby’s hand-eye coordination. The chunky rings are easy to grasp, and each ring has a different texture and weight, making them great for mouthing. The nine-piece set is perfect for babies six months in age and older and is a super affordable gift for moms as well.
28. Ayla & Co. Ayla Mini Diaper Bag
BEST DISCRETE DIAPER BAG
For a diaper bag that doesn’t scream “diaper bag,” we like the chic and modern designs from Ayla & Co. The brand makes a full-sized bag, the mini shown here and a fanny pack diaper bag, all made from beautiful vegan leather and will serve moms long after diaper days are done. The full-sized and mini bags have a removable, washable liner, straps that convert from a backpack to a shoulder bag, insulated bottle pockets, credit card holders and more intelligent features that make diaper changes, dare we say, stylish? SPY received a sample of the Ayla Mini Bag, and the compliments haven’t stopped.Buy: Ayla & Co. Ayla Mini Diaper Bag $134.00
29. Nanit Pro Smart Baby Monitor
Help moms keep an eye on their little ones with the top-rated Nanit Pro Smart Baby Monitor that comes with a secure WiFi camera, sleep and breathing motion tracker, two-way audio and more (the Nanit is our pick for the best baby monitor). This is the ultimate gadget for keeping tabs on babies when they’re not in the room with you, and it’s an excellent way for moms to stay connected to their children via crystal clear audio and real-time motion notifications sent right to their phone if the baby is stirring. The Nanit provides the baby’s sleep stats and personalized sleep guidance from pediatric sleep experts, and it’s easy to set up.
30. Munchkin Bluetooth Enabled Lightweight Baby Swing
FOR THE HANDS-FREE MOM
New moms often have this weird habit of wanting to shower every few days and eat food with both hands. We know, we know, so selfish. This is one of the best gifts for new moms as it gives moms a break with a safe place to put baby. Weighing less than 10 pounds and featuring a space-saving foldable design, the swing is easy to move from room to room and provides a safe and comfortable space for babies weighing between five and 20 pounds to relax.
SPY received a sample of the chair and we loved the easy assembly, the remote control for moving through the five swing speeds, the touch display and the Bluetooth-enabled capabilities for streaming music. Did we mention that the removable seat pad and headrest are machine washable? Game changer.
31. Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump
BEST FOR PUMPING MOMS
Many insurance companies offer breast pumps for free, but not all, which is why new moms may need to invest in a quality pump. Give the mom in your life a pump from Lansinoh, a leader in breastfeeding products. We like that the pump has an AC adapter, can be used with batteries, or powered by a car adapter (sold separately). The brand’s SignaturePro pump has hospital strength suction, eight suction levels, an easy-to-read LCD screen, and can be used with flanges of different sizes. This last part is especially important. If you know, you know.
32. Crane & Canopy Pajama Sleep Set
Here’s another fun fact new moms often aren’t warned about — night sweats. They’re real, and they can come on with a vengeance. Crane & Canopy’s Layla Short and Pajama Sleep set are the ultimate in comfort and will help mom feel cool all night (and all day, let’s be honest). This set looks especially chic, thanks to the contrast piping. SPY received a sample and loved the soft fabric and stretchy waistband, which is especially important for moms recovering from C-sections.

33. Venture Pal Motivational Fitness Water Bottle with Time Marker
New moms need to drink. Interpret that how you will, but from sleep deprivation to body trauma to high-stress levels and everything else she gets thrown at here on any given day, keeping mom hydrated is the key to keeping mom moving. Proper hydration is essential for breastfeeding moms, and no one is thirstier than a new mom who has just sat down and finally achieved a solid latch. This bottle keeps any mom, new or not, on track to get the daily recommended dose of 64 ounces and features a removable straw and strap, helping to up the convenience factor.
34. Hello Bello Break in Case of Baby Gift Set
BEST GIFT SET
A standard gift for new moms is bath and lotion sets for the baby. So yeah, we’re not reinventing the wheel here, but this type of gift set like the one from Hello Bello is great because moms will actually use all the products and won’t have to run to the drug store at 3 a.m. for diaper cream. SPY has tested Hello Bello’s bath products, and like that the plant-based lotions are gentle on a baby’s skin … and on mom’s skin. Moms get dry, too!
35. Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine
BEST FOR SLEEP TRAINING
When the baby gets a good night’s rest, so does mom. That’s what makes the Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine an excellent gift for new mothers. The multitasker works as a sound machine, night light, and alarm clock, with a soft light that mimics the sunrise as it brightens. The sound machine can be controlled via smartphone to make life easier for parents, allowing them to control the color, brightness, sound, and volume. Mom can also program it based on the baby’s sleep schedule.
36. Pure Daily Care Ultimate Aromatherapy Diffuser & Essential Oil Set
BEST FOR RELAXATION
Becoming a new parent can be an emotional roller coaster. For example, you’ve just put the baby down for the night but can’t fall asleep yourself, and then when you need an energy boost, you just want to take a nap. Luckily, aromatherapy can help. This set includes everything a new mom could need, with a diffuser that has seven ambient light modes and two intensity settings, as well as four timer settings and auto-shutoff when water gets too low. There are also 10 essential oils to fit her moods and needs, including lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, orange, peppermint, lemongrass, jasmine, nutmeg, clove and spearmint oils.
37. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Room Freshener
FOR THE MOM WITH GUESTS
Expectations when visiting a new mom should be at a zero. Energy to tidy, vacuum, dust and wipe down surfaces is solely reserved for keeping mom and baby going. New moms should not be worried about the state of their home, but we get that many still want their surroundings to be presentable to guests. Fake it until you make it with Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Room Freshener. SPY received a sample of the new spring scents for 2022, and we love the Rose, which distracted us from our own pile of dirty laundry in the middle of the living room.Buy: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Room Freshener $10.78
38. Frida Mom Hospital Packing Kit for Labor and Delivery + Postpartum
BEST FOR POSTPARTUM
For those whose journey to motherhood included a hospital stay, their body has been through a trauma. Yep, we said it. Frida has a vast lineup of helpful products for babies and moms, including their Hospital Packing Kit for labor, delivery and postpartum. The kit includes several items that moms will receive during their hospital stay but are difficult to find once home. Instead of a new mom scouring the internet for perineal foam while she should be resting, gift your mama with a kit that includes essentials to take care of her essentials.
39. Force of Nature Multi-Purpose Cleaner
FOR THE MOM WHO FIGHTS GERMS
Keeping moms and newborns healthy is imperative, and that means keeping your home free from germs while also using a cleaner that is not toxic to little ones. SPY used the Force of Nature Multi-Purpose Cleaner, and we were impressed with the system’s compact design. The innovative unit uses electricity to convert tap water and a small cleaner tube into a multi-purpose, multi-room cleaner that is an EPA registered disinfectant and sanitizer. The non-toxic cleaner, which is similar in power to bleach but doesn’t contain any added fragrances, dyes, or irritants, can be used in just about any room, including the kitchen and bathrooms, and is even safe on baby items.
40. Ray Bar Necklace from Made By Mary
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES JEWELRY

Each wine is made by a female winemaker or comes from a female-owned winery in California with informational cards about the wines and winery included. SPY tried the wines included in the set and we officially have six new favorite wines. Each wine is dry, has 0g of sugar and is vegan-friendly. Yeah, it’s a lot to love, we know!Buy: A Week of Women-Owned Wine From Maker Winer $56.00
42. Under Eye Collagen Eye Mask Patches
BEST FOR THE SLEEP-DEPRIVED MOM
It’s a well-known fact that new moms are not getting a lot of sleep — and she might have the tired, puffy eyes to prove it. That’s where these firming, soothing eye gel masks come in. These under-eye patches use snail slime, 24 karat gold, and peptides to hydrate skin and reduce dark circles underneath the eyes. In just 15 minutes a day, they’re formulated to help revive tired eyes and deliver long-lasting moisture.
43. Motherhood Maternity Women’s Wrap Front Nursing Sleep Bra
BEST FOR NURSING
When she has to wake up in the middle of the night to feed the baby, the last thing she needs to deal with is fumbling with her bra. Comfy and convenient, this bra is designed for overnight wear. The pull-on style is soft and wireless, ideal for sleeping yet giving just enough support. The wrap front allows for easy nursing access, and the layered design helps protect sheets from leakage.
44. Day 2 Night Crossbody by Jujube
FOR MOM’S FIRST NIGHT OUT
Whether mom is heading out for her first date night or needs a diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag, it doesn’t get much more stylish or functional than the Day 2 Night Crossbody by Jujube. Known for their durable, functional, and fashionable baby and kid-friendly bags, Jujube’s new Day 2 Night Crossbody has all the style and substance new moms need in a bag. SPY received a sample and we loved that the bag came with a changing pad, plenty of pockets with room for diapers, wipes, a onesie and mom’s personal items. We were even able to fit a small bottle in the middle section of the bag, which can also be worn as a clutch. Available in several colors, moms will be able to use the Day 2 Night as an everyday purse even when their little ones don’t require a diaper bag anymore.Buy: Day 2 Night Crossbody by Jujube $100.00
45. Magic Bag
BEST FOR SORE MOMS
Being a new mom is a physical role. Carrying a baby all day, lifting car seats and laundry baskets, bending over bathtubs and crawling undetected out of a dark bedroom after your little one has fallen asleep (moms are ninjas) can take a toll on any mom. That’s why we like the hot and cold compress from Magic Bag. Store it in the freezer or microwave the Magic Bag to instantly relieve sore muscles. SPY received a sample of the Magic Bag, and yup, it’s magic.Buy: Magic Bag $32.94
46. Bebe au Lait Premium Cotton Nursing Cover
BEST NURSING COVER
There are many great nursing covers available, but one of the best is the Bebe au Lait Premium Cotton Nursing Cover. We like that it has a rigid neckline that holds the away from the body, which means the fabric won’t ‘stick’ to the baby and gives moms an easy sightline of their little one while still keeping themselves completely covered. It’s also lightweight, which helps keep both baby and mom comfortable.Buy: Bebe au Lait Premium Cotton Nursing Cover $31.99 (orig. $36.00) 11% OFF
