1. Sophie the Giraffe Trio Gift Set

Sophie the Giraffe has been THE GIFT for newborns for nearly a decade now and there is no stopping her popularity. This would make a perfect Baby Shower Gift or just buy it for your own little bubba. I love this trio gift set though because you get more Sophie for your buck.

5. Baby Shusher – The Sleep Miracle

The Baby Shusher is a unique, patented device that produces the sound of womb-like shushing. The soothing sound produced by the Baby Shusher has been proven to calm crying babies. Babies are calmed by the rhythmic and constant noise of Mum’s heartbeat from inside their mother’s womb.

This natural calming reflex can be triggered with the comforting sounds of Mum’s heartbeat, which have been proven to be as effective as a pacifier in calming crying babies. The Baby Shusher is easy to use and will automatically shut off after either 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the setting.
