New mamas are just getting into the swing of caring for someone other than themselves, so it’s hard to predict what to do in an actual emergency. That’s why preparation is key: We like to have an army of health and safety items on standby. They’re not just for that new baby, too—a few of these picks are great items to keep mamas healthy and ready for the long parenting haul.

Baby Dream Weighted Sleep Gown
Give a new mama the gift of a good night’s sleep with this weighted sleep gown. The sack’s weight mimics her hug, so babies are more likely to stay asleep. Try this for 12-22-month-olds.
Dillon Toe Post Sandal
Foot and leg pain are common during and after pregnancy. That’s why we’re all about Vionic shoes, which offer a technology that hugs your arches and supports your feet in comfort. In fact, these shoes even help provide relief from plantar fasciitis and heel pain.
We hate to say it, but oral care can often go out the window when you have an infant. BURST’s water flosser provides a whole new level of clean so you can feel at ease knowing you’re optimizing your oral health during these times. We love the ergonomic, cordless, space-saving design.
Adhesive Magnetic Lock
The gift of safety is arguably the best present a mama can receive. This product ups the game by allowing her home to maintain its stylish aesthetic. This adhesive lock attaches to the inside of cabinets for an invisible safety solution.
Children's Acetaminophen Pain + Fever
Genexa is the first clean medicine company with over-the-counter options that contain active ingredients moms and babies need—without the fillers, additives and junk they don’t. Try the pain and fever reducer that’s free of common allergens such as lactose and gluten.
American Red Cross
