16 Practical Gifts For Newborn Babies in India
You never visit a newborn and her parents empty handed. It is a common custom to carry a gift. But isn’t it high time to give a break to the same old baby sets?
While it’s easy for new parents to figure out what another new parent will need. It’s not quite easy for a non-parent or a pretty old one who forgot what it was like to have a newborn. So for you people, we have put together a small list of practical gifts that newborn parents would love.
Note- Does the newborn you are gifting have an elder sibling? Don’t forget to buy a gift for him/her. They might already have a difficult time adjusting to the fact that their mom’s attention is getting divided. A toy for the elder sibling will take off the steam and help them adjust better to the newcomer.
Best Gift Ideas For Newborn Babies In India
Here is the comprehensive list of best gift ideas for newborns in India.
Parents on an average spend close to Rs.10,000 per year for disposable diapers. They would only be happy if you pitch in. A small size pant type diaper from Pampers would be an apt choice for a newborn.
These are the better choice if you are environment conscious. Cloth diapers these days are as comfortable as disposables and you do not leave a mark on the environment too. You can check out our article on best cloth diapers to know more.
New moms are generally concerned about bathing newborns as they are very delicate. A baby bather would be of great use to help moms bathe their little ones with relative ease. A great option is Mastella baby bather. It’s practical and portable, making it a must have for new parents.
If you really can’t think of anything to gift or if you lack time, gift card is the best option. Rather than gift card from physical store, get one from Amazon or any other online store as new parents might find it hard to find time to go and buy from a store.
Swaddling clothes are very much needed by new parents. No matter how many you have it’s simply not enough as babies have the uncanny ability to poop and pee the minute they are out of the diaper usually soiling the swaddling cloth. Please note however to gift it only to babies younger than 1 month as babies are usually out of swaddling by 3 months.
Play gym is a great way to engage small babies who are yet to roll. A new parent would greatly appreciate having a play gym so that she can carry on with some chores while the baby is busy with the play gym. Once the baby starts rolling, he is likely to find some other ways to play with the play gym. But even so, it is advisable to gift it to a baby of around 2-4 months of age.
Every parent will have to baby proof their home by the time the baby starts to crawl. And is there a better gift than a baby proofing kit? It’s ideal to gift it to a baby of 3-5 months of age so that the parents can get the home baby proofed well in advance.
Though a tad pricey, a bouncing chair will be of great use to a baby up till her first birthday or sometimes even beyond. It can keep a baby engaged as well as rock them to sleep. But it would be a good idea to check with the parents before buying it because some parents are against using bouncing chairs.
Most babies just don’t relent until they are carried by their mom and if the family often goes out on travels, a baby carrier sling would relive them of achy hands.
Look out for age recommendations of the sling as smaller babies will need baby carrier that provides extra support for their neck. You can also check out our article on best baby carriers to know more.
