Herfamily Gift Guide: 10 gifts perfect for a new mama and her baby
Being a new mama is overwhelming.
Which is why it is so extra nice to spoil them at this time in their life.
And if you have got a new mama on your Christmas shopping list this year, we think she is going to love unwrapping some of these come Christmas morning:
1. The Pop from Doddle & Co
This genius dummy is made in such a way that if it falls (as in, baby spits it out), the nipple pops back into its built-in protective silicone bubble – and stays clean, even if hitting the floor. No need for a case, even.
The Pop from Doddle & Co, twin-pack, $ 18.99, from Doddleandco.com
2. Clara Cloud Mobile
This cute mobile cloud with colorful pom poms is a great addition to any nursery.
Clara Cloud Mobile, €45, from Lambdesign.ie
3. Twinkle Twinkle Limited Edition Art Print
Art is such a beautiful and personal gift, and we love this particular one – so perfect to pretty up a nursery wall.
Twinkle Twinkle Limited Edition Art Print, from $21, Minted.com
4. Nespresso Prodigio Coffee Machine
Give the gift of coffee to a new mama. She will love you forever and ever.
Nespresso Prodigio Coffee Machine, €199, Arnotts.ie
5. This Works Baby Sleep Pillow Spray
I our house, we are obsessed with this calming scent – which I have sprayed a tiny little spritz of on my kids' pillows since – well, forever. I love how the formula is so clean (no sulphates, no phthalates, no parabens, no synthetic colours, no GMOS– you get the picture), and how the mere sight of this little bottle make everyone feel a little sleepier.
Oh, and while you are at it – buy a bottle of the adult version (Deep Sleep Pillow Spray) for the new mama too.
This Works Baby Sleep Pillow Spray, €22, Meaghers Pharmacy and other selected stockists nationwide
6. Yes Mum Affirmation Cards
Being a new mum can be overwhelming (boy, can it!), and sometimes the best thing you can give someone is inner peace in knowing they got this – everything is going to be just fine.
Which is why we love these affirmation cards so much. All you need to do in order to tap into your innner mama zen is to place the pack on your bedside table, your desk, near a chair you feed in or next to the kettle; anywhere you are likely to see them on a regular basis. Aim to turn a new card over each morning, read aloud the affirmation and embrace it for the rest of your day.
Yes Mum Affirmation Cards, €13,50, Younghearts.ie

This set is pretty much the perfect combination for baby bath time, as it includes a 100ml Atoderm Shower Oil as well as a 100ml Atoderm Preventive Nourishing Cream.
Bioderma Atoderm Baby Kit, €8, from pharmacies nationwide
8. Moss Knit Blanket
New mamas spend a lot of time at home – make sure she will do so in comfort and style.
