2. Leachro Pregnancy Pillow
Help your favorite preggo get some blissful sleep… at least until she has to run to the bathroom again.
Product Review: Overall a great product, has helped me sleep better. I’m 36 weeks and can’t sleep without it now. I was using a big pile of pillows before, and this stays behind my back a lot more effectively.
When I first started using it the part that goes under my head was too thick and gave me neck pain, but after a week or so it smooshed down to a more comfortable height. By Amazon Customer
3. Preggatinis Drink Mix Book
Just because she can’t have alcohol doesn’t mean she can’t kick back with a delicious mock-tail.
Product Review: I bought for my sister when she was pregnant with her first child. She loved this book and used it to make her nightly “Preggatinis” and still uses it. Even my brother-in-law has a few favorite recipes. By Amazon Customer

Product Review: My wife loved this and it got me brownie points for a week! The preggie pops worked very well! Even the elastic belt, she uses it more than the ones she bought. Highly recommend! By Amazon Customer
6. MadeMother Pregnancy Compression Socks
During your friend’s pregnancy, blood will be flowing at a higher volume, which can cause discomfort (especially during long car rides). These compression socks reduce swelling when your buddy’s belly gets balloon-sized.
Product Review: I am a big fan of these. I am 8 months pregnant and a little bit uncomfortable these days, However, these socks really helped the swelling in my lower legs and feet.
I really appreciated that, and they are quite comfortable. I would certainly buy these again if they were just a tad bit cheaper. By Amazon Customer
7. Fertile Mind Belly Belt Combo Kit
She has already sacrificed margaritas and soft cheeses (how tragic!), but with this belly belt, she won’t have to give up her favorite jeans just yet.
Product Review: I bought this product when I was around 26 weeks pregnant and could no longer button my jeans.
I couldn’t find any maternity jeans I was happy with, so I had to look for alternatives. I’m now 38 weeks and still using it! I expect to be able to use it right up until the end.
While I see that this would be great for someone who wears dress pants with the option of the 2 slide-type bands, I haven’t used those at all. I found the pieces of fabric to cover your underwear pretty useless as well. By Amazon Customer

Has pregnancy plagued her with morning sickness, or even worse, all-day sickness? This all-natural, drug-free solution targets special pressure points to relieve her nausea. Pair it with a pack of saltines and you’ll be her new favorite person.
Product Review: Used it for a cruise after I developed severe allergies to my go-to motion sickness tablet. This worked brilliantly.
I was on four cruises in a week and felt great. The one time that I decided I would take a break from it – I immediately got a headache so I quickly put it back on again. By Amazon Customer
9. Dearfoam Slippers
Wrap her swollen feet in these slippers made of durable, high-density foam. These babies are the ultimate combo of comfort and style.
Product Review: Took three tries to find a slipper the right size, with sufficient sole depth to be comfortable and protective. These slippers fill the bill perfectly. Size is perfect.
I really like them and would buy again if needed, however given the sturdiness of the shoe and the excellent manufacturing, I doubt I’ll need to. Too bad! By Amazon Customer
10. Crib Dribbler
There’s not actually a giant hamster feeder inside it’s just a comical box that you can fill with real baby gifts. Order one here for
Product Review: The dribbler actually holds quite a bit and it takes my wife a long time to pump enough breastmilk to fill it, so we usually just mix baby energy drink in to get it all the way filled.
It lasts for hours though, so it’s an absolute life saver when something happens that we can’t take the little one to daycare. By Amazon Customer

13. Bacon Teethers
Since the baby won’t be able to experience the magical taste of bacon just quite yet, get them the next best thing.
Product Review: So so cute and her absolute favorite! This tether has seen some real action and has held up and is still going strong.
It is a perfect shape for little hands to hold and the texture is great to soothe gums or just chew on for fun. We have 2 and I recommend them a lot! By Amazon Customer
14. Bio-Oil Skincare Oil
Give your skin a break while stuck inside. It’s the perfect time to take care of your skin with Bio-Oil Skincare Oil. Made for all skin types, this paraben-free body oil for dry skin can be used to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and other marks due to surgery, injury, acne, aging, pregnancy, and more. This facial skin care product has a fast-absorbing, non-comedogenic formula that won’t clog pores which is why it is the perfect face moisturizer for women.
So I’ve been using bio oil for about a month now and It seems to be working. My newest scars have definitely been improving but my old scars still seem to be pretty dark. My face does feel alot smoother and more moisturized. It hasn’t been irritating my skin and it’s a great moisturizer. I use a very little bit just to get a thin layer over my face then I apply my lotion on top. I’ve also been using African black soap and witch hazel so the combination of these things may have resulted in this outcome but overall I’d say it’s a pretty good product as adding it to my routine has seemed to help.
15. Porn for New Moms
Product Review: It was THE hit at the baby shower!! For reasons I don’t understand (maybe because I’m a guy), women really get a kick out of this one.
I also purchased Porn for New Brides and found the same reaction. Maybe it’s because these books show us men as women would really like us to be, rather than the animals that we usually are: to wit, “Let’s not have sex tonight, sweetie, and I’ll just give you a foot rub.” Really!! Great fun. By Amazon Customer
16. Pregnancy Belly Painting Kit
Product Review: It was very safe and easy to use. My husband had fun drawing on my belly and I felt beautiful to see my baby through these belly pictures. Definitely worth celebrating the belly time. Recommend it for showers or general photographic memories. By Amazon Customer
17. Philips SmartSleep Sleep
The Philips SmartSleep Sleep and Wake-Up Light allows you to personalize your sleep and wake-up experience through sunset and sunrise simulation. Unlike a traditional alarm clock, it is designed to wake you in a more natural way, using a unique combination of light and sound. In the evening, light-guided breathing helps you relax to sleep and sunset simulation helps you fall asleep more peacefully.Smart features include midnight lamp, FM radio, phone charging dock, power back-up, speaker, auto dimming display, 25 personalized brightness settings and smart snooze.
My fairly old-fashioned travel alarm clock died some years ago, and I switched to using my smart phone alarm. The suddenness of its ring tones was getting to me, especially (but not only) in winter when our bedroom is still dark. So I bought this wake-up light. As other reviewers have noted, the menu is not the easiest to navigate and it took me a while to figure it out.

Review Brittany C. Grant I really like the Boba wrap. Everytime my baby is in the wrap she falls asleep. I am a first time wrapper and I only watched one YouTube video and learned how to wrap it. This wrap is a bit warm and will sometimes cause my baby to sweat but right now it is still cool where I live. Once it warms up I will probably have to get a thinner wrap.
20. Women’s Under Bump Maternity Panties Healthy Underwear
Product Review: These panties are wonderful. I’m 23 weeks along, and my thongs and regular panties just aren’t cutting it anymore.
I have tried buying so many different underwears, and these are the only ones that have fit comfortably. They go up high enough on your back and hips to hold them in place and rest below your baby bump.
They are far more flattering than any full coverage panties I have seen. I’d highly recommend. I am 136lbs, 5’5, at 23 weeks, and bought the extra large, based on other comments.
I would not recommend this underwear for plus sized women, as they are Chinese sized. However, for a normal pregnancy, they are great! By Amazon Customer
21. Neato Robotics Botvac D7 Connected App
Take your cleaning further with the Neato Botvac D7 connected. With lasers mapping and Navigation it covers more area in less time, moving around your house logically—not randomly. New zone cleaning lets you pinpoint trouble areas you want to clean more frequently. Turbo mode provides an extra powerful clean picking up debris you can’t see, while the robotic D-Shape design tracks down dirt in corners and along walls better than others. The BotVac D7 is super smart, remembering multiple floor plans and letting you create no-go lines on each, so your Robot knows where not to go. And it keeps getting smarter, so you’re first to have the latest features. With up to two hours of battery life, the BotVac D7 is perfect for even the largest homes.
Review:-Dave After doing much research, I narrowed down my choice for a robotic vacuum to Neato D7 or the Roomba 980. I decided on the Neato D7 because I’ve read it’s better with pet hair, uses laser and not cameras so can work in the dark, and held a longer battery charge in real-time tests. I was a bit leary because of some of the negative reviews so went ahead and bought the 3 year warranty. Anyway, the first time out of the box, Neato did a great job of navigating around obstacles, getting itself unstuck, and mapping about 90% of my house.
Some More Gift Ideas For Mom To Be
What makes tummydrops unique?
- They are completely natural, unlike many products designed to help calm upset tummies
- They were developed by doctors who specialize in nausea to ensure that they would act fast
I love these ginger drops as they really settle down my stomach and stop the burping. I take 1-2 a day and love the taste. I am allergic to so many foods and they just upset my stomach all the time.
I was taking Tums but the drops work so much better. I reordered and also sent a package to my daughter so she can try them.
I now combine the drops and also drink a glass of warm water with 2 teaspoon of vinegar and a tbsp. Of raw honey and I am amazed how I finally have relief after probably 5 years of suffering plus trying prescription drugs and also many over the counter products. I highly recommend them.

Product Review: This book is hilarious and super fun to fill out. In my opinion, way more fun to fill out for pregnancy memories than your traditional bleak baby book.
I purchased this late in my third tri when I learned I would need to be induced and thought I would need to bring activities with me to the hospital when it was baby time.
I didn’t actually use it in the hospital while I was in labor, but it was a nice thought. My only regret is not buying it sooner.
I would absolutely buy this for a friend upon learning she is pregnant. I would give this 10 stars if I could. By Amazon Customer

I could not be happier! Oh, man- this thing is like a pillowy hug that gently supports my belly.
I love it! It is so comfy and supportive, and even provides some lower back support! I can’t wait to use this thing at work when I’m on my feet for 6 hours! By Amazon Customer
Bella B Tummy Honey Butter
The Original Tummy Honey Butter, launched in 1999, is the ultimate solution for the prevention of new stretch marks by maintaining skin elasticity and moisture deep into skin layers.
Tummy Honey Butter is all-natural, hypoallergenic, contains no water, petroleum or lanolin (which comes from sheep wool) and includes anti-itch ingredients to soothe those growing tummies.
Tummy Honey Butter is ideal for preventing stretch marks during pregnancy. It has an oil-based formula that penetrates deep into the skin layers, maintaining skin moisture and elasticity for several hours without leaving the skin feeling greasy.
And unlike many other prevention products, Tummy Honey Butter contains no water–which ultimately dries out, and is not ideal for maximizing skin elasticity for extended periods.
Product Review: Best belly butter out there. I tried several different kinds and couldn’t find any that I felt like kept my skin as hydrated as this one.
I put it on after my shower at night before bed and I can still feel it throughout the next day. I used it my first pregnancy and am using now for my second.
This time I started using it much earlier so I am going through more than the first time (about 1 per month starting around 18 weeks).
I didn’t get any stretch marks the first time and am hoping for the same results this time. So far, at 33 weeks, things are still good. I recommend this belly butter to every pregnant friend I have! By Amazon Customer

It fits great! I bought it for the hospital and post baby, but it even fits well now! So so so comfortable. I was worried that since we live in FL it would be too hot, but the fabric feels cool against my skin! By Amazon Customer

22.NEW Ember Temperature Control Travel Mug
Depends on how high you keep the temp, what you have in the mug and more.One wish When I put the mug on the 2nd coaster when I get to work, I wish it would charge, not just hold current charge. Told this is how it works. So if you take it off the coaster, fully charged, two hours later and out it back on the charge station – it will not charge back fully. Even if you leave your tea on charge for 3 hours. You still only have that one hour remaining.Unless you are empty, and then recharge, you one get 3 hours per… Or constant charge while it is on charger.
At WavHello, we’re parents too. And we believe small moments shared between family and friends make a big difference. By leveraging technology and innovation, our goal is to empower families to connect, share and thrive.Hearing is the first sense that connects baby-to-be with the big world outside. Give them something memorable to listen to with BellyBuds. And even better, research shows that babies remember voices and music they heard in the womb (like mom’s voice or a lullaby) and are comforted by those same familiar sounds during infancy and beyond.
My close friend is currently mine and my husbands gestational carrier and we are due in Feb 2020. We thought these would be an amazing idea so she could wear them while at work or at home and the baby could listen to our voices. The sound is great – and there is even a quiet mode feature so you do not make it too loud for baby.

I mix it with a few drops of Bio Oil and spread it over my whole belly, sides, chest, everything. No stretch marks for this happy mama and a very soft belly. I highly recommend!

26.Leachco Snoogle Original Maternity
Leachco recognizes Ella sparkle, meislin CNY sales, and dainty baby as authentic sellers or distributors of the Leachco brand Snoogle original total body pillow.

There’s the pillow that goes behind your back for support, The one between your knees for temperature control and the two to Prop up your head to aid in breathing.
Warning to men, your wife is going to be obsessed with this gargantuan pillow. I ordered this pillow for my wife because she was pregnant and kept waking up on her back and wanted to make sure that she stayed sleeping on her side during the pregnancy.

27.Stanley Adventure Reusable Vacuum Quencher Tumbler
The Stanley Adventure Quencher series has a 3-position lid for ease of use. Featuring 18/8 stainless steel that is naturally BPA-free and won’t rust. Built specifically to be car cup compatible and dishwasher safe. Keeps cold drinks cold for up to 5 hours, iced drinks for up to 30 hours, and hot drinks stay hot for up to 4 hours.
It’s too bad there isn’t a 4.5 option because that’s what I’d give this item instead of a 4.00. I like the Vacuum Quencher very much – it keeps my drinks cold for hours and is exactly the right size for my purpose. I even like the way it looks. I do have two minor quibbles though that keeps me from giving it a five.First, it can be difficult to unscrew the top and I think that people with arthritis or small hands might have problems with it. My hands are small enough that I have to hold the cup in place with something while using both hands to unscrew its top.
