First, let’s start with the baby’s.
- Baby blanket
This is one of the best things that you can give to a newborn baby because they can use the blanket forever! Find a fluffy and comfortable blanket that will warm the baby at night but does not make them feel hot during daytime.
- Play gym

That age, they will be able to respond and it is good for their sensory and motor skills. The best play gym is the one that does not have too much hard equipment because we want to avoid causing injuries to the baby.
- Bath bundle
Bath bundle is a set of body towels, face towels and sometimes it includes a handkerchief and napkins for daily use. This bundle usually uses towels from soft materials, so it is better to buy a bath bundle than buying them separately. There are some shops that sell bath bundles that include baby wash. That also can be a good gift for the baby.
- Teething toys
Babies at the age of 7 or 8 months will start to grow teeth and that will cause extreme itchiness on their gums. The best teething toys are usually the ones that have water in them.

It might be a bit hard and hurt the baby’s gum.
Moving on, the mommy!

And the mothers will have to wake up from their good sleep. This sleeping mask helps to give the mother good quality sleep even if they didn’t get enough sleep.
- Wrap baby carrier

You don’t have to worry about the baby’s size and still can be used even after they have grown bigger. It is usually more comfortable than the other type of baby carriers because it is made from cotton.
- Nipple cream
