Local Gift Guide for Moms and Babies

Kentucky has no shortage of awesome gifts for new moms and their kids.

Check out our favorite gift ideas this year. (Bonus- all these businesses are owned by Kentucky moms!)

Born At Home Toys

BornatHomeToysThese toys are made by hand using materials any mom can feel safe about- sustainable, local wood sources, bio-based paint, and non-toxic finishes and glues.

Born At Home offers a variety of age-appropriate toys for your family. Order some teethers for your baby, farm animals for your toddler, or the Under the Moon fishing set for your preschooler!

Prices vary by piece, visit bornathometoys.etsy.com

Mommy Pouch

MommyPouch“Minimize and Organize” is a motto that all moms can get on board with. The Mommy Pouch is a handy bag that fits just the essentials and then snaps on the handle of your stroller or diaper bag.

Instead of lugging a huge bag around for short trips, throw in a diaper, wipes, your cell phone and wallet, and be on your way! Several colors are available to match your own Mommy-style.

$14.99 each, visit mommypouch.com

Posh Pushers

PoshPusherChildbirth may not feel like the most glamorous time for a new mom, but she can still look great in one of these unique labor gowns. Posh Pushers come in several colors, patterns and even have a monogram option so mom can feel pretty and comfortable in her own gown when baby arrives.

These gowns were designed by labor and delivery nurses, so they are functional for a hospital birth with easy IV and epidural access and shoulder snaps for breastfeeding and Kangaroo Care.

$49 & up, visit poshpushers.com

Baby Dreams Maternity Concierge

Baby DreamsMaternity ConciergeInstead of a run-of-the-mill baby registry item, consider a professional planning session as a gift for an expectant mom. Baby Dreams offers doula services, and birth and new baby planning to help parents prepare for a new arrival.

Their “Bump to Baby Prep Package” includes newborn care, breastfeeding basics, meal planning, introducing baby to a pet, baby proofing your home, and much more.

Packages vary in cost, visit babydreamsmc.com.

Fit4Mom Lexington
