Gift Guide for Mamas

With the increasing amount of baby items on the market and the constant launch of new goods, expecting mothers who welcomed a baby even a couple of short years ago might find themselves interested in an entirely new line-up of baby gear.

Our founder Allie Lindenmuth is about to welcome her second child, a girl, and has been swooning over many new items that have either improved immensely, or didn't exist when she welcomed her son.  She created a gift guide with a list of her favorites including many from small companies that she admires.  

Are there any items that you're loving right now that you think a new mama might love?  Tell us about it in the comments below.
