These mom-approved gifts are all available on Amazon, affordable, and would be so welcomed by any mama as the first time mom Christmas gifts.

As I sat down to curate this list I thought back on my own time as a new mom and especially when I was in that fourth trimester, the postpartum time. Perhaps it’s because my first child was born around Thanksgiving, but I always associate the holidays with have a little newborn and need to de-stress and relax.

I mostly just wanted to feel comfortable and cared for, or I wanted to just get fun things for the baby and take all the selfies with my little mini-me. 

So this list of awesome first time mom Christmas gifts is inspired by what I would have loved to receive during that first Christmas as a new mom.
