Give your little one the gift of sleep with Sound of Sleep‘s Lectrofan EVO. I don’t know about you, but my babies will only sleep if there is white noise going in the background. Plus, I notice that they stay asleep longer when they have a white noise machine going. That’s why I’m so excited about Sound of Sleep’s Lectrofan, EVO.

I love that this white noise machine is so small and compact, yet has such a loudspeaker. Plus, it looks just like a piece of home decor! The LectroFan EVO features 22 unique digital sounds, including ten fan sounds, ten white noise sounds and two ocean surf sounds designed to mask noise and provide comfort, relaxation and a better night’s sleep.

Save your floors and your sanity with a SplatMat from BooginHead. I always hated the constant mess under the high chair. I would sweep and mop a million times a day. The BooginHead SplatMat is great for catching the drops and spills under baby’s high chair. Thereby saving your floors from sticky, crunchy, stainy messes and making clean-up faster and easier. Plus, it’s easy to bring on the go to keep baby off of the dirty floors.

Because these can be used by every member of the family, that cuts down on buying separate products for each age group.

Specially for Pregnant & New Mom

Want to make delivery a more comfortable experience? Then be sure to pack Giftgowns for your hospital stay. Equipped with snaps up the back and along the shoulders, Giftgowns offer the perfect amount of coverage while nursing and during recovery. Not to mention, you’ll be the most stylish mom in the delivery room. Available in a variety of patterns, including this Mama in a Box you really can’t go wrong with Giftgowns.

Oh how I wish that Giftgowns would have been around when I gave birth to my babies. Hospital gowns can be so revealing and uncomfortable. I love that these still allow plenty of room for skin to skin, but help keep you modest. Plus, the material is extremely soft and has pockets. I now know what I’m gifting to every new mom – a Giftgown.

Be sure to visit Giftgown for other fun sizes and gowns for men, women, and children.

The white noise machine was an essential thing for us when our babies were little. They just needed a little help tuning out the noise of the house.
