Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump – $18.99

Haakaa baby gift registry holiday gift 2021

This was the #1 most recommended item from everyone on IG, email list, people I knew, MLE staff etc! 

Buy here: Amazon Canada /Amazon US

Why I love it:

  • It’s a silicone breast pump/attachment that catches any letdown and allows you to discretly express anywhere by just suctioning onto the breast!
  • Especially helpful if your breasts are engorged and you need to express to relieve yourself and to help baby latch onto the breast better. 
  • If you’re pumping on one breast, put the Haakaa on the other breast to catch letdown. Saves you from a lot of mess, allows you to collect a lot of otherwise wasted milk to use for another feeding. 

Baby bjorn bouncer – $249.99

Itzy Ritzy diaper bag mom baby shower gift list 2021

I didn’t splurge on a diaper bag when I had my kids, but I regret it! It’s something I carried around for years between my two kids – so if I had to do it again I’d definitely go for something more stylish.

Amazon Canada/ Amazon US

Why I love it:

  • So stylish and doesn’t look like a diaper bag! Can be used outside of baby needs! Use for years to come.
  • All the compartments you could want – 17 total pockets – 10 internal and 7 external – including two insulated bottle pockets, a felt-lined valuables pocket and an easy-access “parent pocket”

FridaBaby NoseFrida The Snot Sucker  – 

BabyFrida nose snot sucker mom baby gifts

Amazon Canada/Amazon US

Why I love it:

  • Soft and stretchy so it lasts longer as baby grows.
  • Safe alternative to having bulky blankets in the crib which can lead to SIDS or Suffocation.

Baby Led Feeding course – $99 (now 25% off using code BLACKFRIDAY until 11/29/2021)

Baby Led Feeding starting solids course mom baby gift shower idea 2021

Will shout it from the rooftop that I think it’s so important that you have a course to tell you what to do because no one teaches you this stuff (moms and grandmas don’t count..love em…but SO much has changed!) and finding the time to learn it all in full when your baby is 4, 5 or 6 months old is so hard! And knowing that it’s not just about starting solids…it’s about continuing feeding which you’ll do for the rest of their childhood life. so starting them off with a good foundation so you’re doing it to prevent picky eating and starting them off in the way a feeding expert would do it is they way to go! You’ll drive yourself crazy with the conflicting information online and although you can find tons of one off tips…you don’t get the full picture that will make the real difference in raising an adventurous, happy eater until you have the course. 

Click here to check it out.

Why I love it: 

  • It’s a step by step course taking you through before you start solids to the early days and months, to when they’re more advanced and then up to 12 months of age
  • It’s unique in that it allows you to start with either purees or finger foods (baby led weaning) and shows you how to do each in detail and progress in textures in timely and easy manner using my Texture Timeline™. 
  • Videos that show you how to serve food from every food group, babies eating, babies gagging, learning how to use utensils, drink from a cup/straw cup, and more!
  • Created by a registered pediatric dietitian (me!) and consulted on with speech language pathologist, allergist, first aid and CPR certified instructor.
  • Printable resources you reference at any point in time. 
  • Lifetime access to the course and any and all the updates
  • Accessible from any device (phone, tablet, computer) and can access via a free app on your phone!

Don’t forget…get 25% using code BLACKFRIDAY until 11/29/2021!

Infant CPR course mom baby gift idea 2021

Click here to check it out!

Why I love it: 

  • I always recommend taking an infant CPR course before starting solids…it’s a must in my opinion to know what to do if a baby goes unresponsive, stops breathing (CPR) or begins to choke. 
  • It also covers info on preventing injuries for babies and toddlers.
  • Most thorough course out there on the markeet.

  • Can purchase Handi Cutlery – simply attach it to the bib, and the unique ‘no drop’ straps mean no more picking up spoons and forks from the floor for you, and aids your little one’s development by allowing them to drop their cutlery as many times as it takes for them to get the hang of it.
