1) Moulin Roty Dolls
As the first friend they’ll make in the world, a doll provides an infant with a companion which will be there for them throughout their waking and sleeping hours.
Knowing this, go ahead and make your friend’s newborn as happy as a clam by getting them a plush toy from la grande famille Moulin Roty.
A line of super comfortable dolls made by the widely respected French toy company Moulin Roty, it features many different types of animals (such as rabbits and foxes) dressed up like people.
Thanks to their softness and cute looks, your friend’s newborn will form a bond with these dolls which will have them dragging theirs everywhere they go.
2) Floating Bath Thermometers
Bath time will become a ritual which new mothers will become well-acquainted with over the coming months.
Thanks to the parenting books they have been reading, they’ll know what the optimal temperature a bath should be. However, without a dedicated thermometer, it can be hard to get right every time.
With plenty of opportunities to become distracted, there is also an element of danger in this activity. The water can become scalding hot if Mom ends up getting sidetracked from tracking the temperature, opening the door for a tragic mistake to be made.
A floating bath thermometer eliminates these concerns, as it reads out the water’s exact temperature in real time. With some models even changing color as the water becomes warmer, it will be next to impossible to run a dangerously hot bath.
3) Hip Baby Clothes
Want your friend’s newborn to become the coolest kid on the block? Help build their cred by getting them threads which will set them apart from their peers.
From one-piece bodysuits which implore those around to ‘keep calm and carry them’, to black and white knitted caps which practically scream hipster, there are numerous outfit ideas which can help them become the sharpest looking kid at the park.
4) Funny Accessories
Many people take child rearing too seriously: yes, it is a huge responsibility, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with the process.
From bibs that come ‘camouflaged’ with fake spaghetti stains, to soothers which have ‘mute button’ emblazoned across the front, there are plenty of funny baby accessories which will help new parents embrace the lighter side of raising a child.
