#9 SNOOZ White Noise Sound Machine
Few things are more distressing to new parents than a baby in discomfort or pain who won’t stop crying, no matter what you do. And, while the infant will never remember having colic, parents will never forget. However, a simple cure exists. It’s called white noise, and it helps recreate some of the experience of being in the womb, calming babies down and putting an end to the screaming. But, before you plug in a fan or vacuum — or even put in a white noise CD or turn on a white noise app — be aware that noise levels which don’t bother us can give a baby permanent hearing damage.
That’s why Snooz is the ONLY white noise machine on the market with a unique nursery setting. With a real fan inside its stylish body, Snooz creates a natural, comforting sound with customizable levels without blowing cold air on infants. And, its app for iOS and Droid provides control, including off and on times, from a distance so there’s no disturbing sleeping babies.

#13 Vliba Individual Disposable Diaper Sacks
Vliba thick and sturdy diaper disposal sacks provide an easy and convenient diaper change product for moms on the go. One package contains 4 easy to dispense packets for Mom’s purse, car, stroller, and diaper bag and eliminates the problem of dealing with a messy diaper while visiting friends, shopping, traveling or taking a stroll in the park. Mom is ready for anything and ready to be out with baby.
While raising their own children our parent inventors saw a significant need for a thicker diaper disposal sack without clumsy handles. Competitive sacks are about as thin as a grocery store bag and can and do tear. The handles also leave gaps when tied, leaking odors and occasionally spilling contents. The innovative Vliba Diaper Disposal Sacks are extra thick and strong, made from high-density polyethylene to effectively seal in wetness and odors.
The Vliba Individual Disposable Diaper Sacks are perfect for diaper changes on the go. For a quick change in the car, simply place the soiled diaper, wipes and other messy items inside a Vliba Diaper Sack. The sack and its contents can later be thrown away in a trash can when you arrive at your destination. The Vliba Diaper Sacks are also great for changes at the home of friends or relatives. Once tied, the sack and its messy contents can be placed in any trash can – no mess, no smell, no problem.

#24 Mama Java Coffee for Moms
We all know that mom life is no joke... it's tiring, demanding, and basically REQUIRES caffeine - lol! Unfortunately, though, almost every mom that I know (including myself) NEVER gets to finish her cup of coffee when it's fresh and warm. We're always drinking it cold, letting it sit, and reheating the same cup over and over - leading to...well, I'll just say it - one crappy cup of coffee.
So why, if we need this magical drink to survive, do we all suffer through a gross cup of java day after day? Here's where we come in!! At Mama Java, we *very* carefully select our beans and roast them to pass what we lovingly call the motherhood test.
You can let a cup of Mama Java sit, reheat it, even drink it cold and old and it will STILL be a great cup of coffee. If that's not enough, we've made our roast names and descriptions funny and relatable to REAL mom life. You know, dishes in the sink, laundry piles sitting, wondering what in the hell you're going to make for dinner.... we've all been there and understand the challenges of #momlife and that's why we roast coffee JUST FOR MOMS.
So I say give mom something she's truly going to use as a gift this year...a bag of this amaze-balls coffee!! Let me know if you'd like to hear more, want high res images or better yet - try a sample for yourself!

#28 Bounce Back Fast! Post Natal Core Conditioning
Unlike most postnatal exercise routines, which are really nothing more than generic toning exercises, my program:
systematically rebuilds all four layers of the abdominal wall,
repairs diastasis recti (abdominal separation),
eliminates back pain and pelvic instability,
realigns the spine,
and develops functional core strength and stability.
Best of all, my system re-flattens the abdominal wall and narrows the waist, FAST!
The DVD features three progressive workouts (one just for women with diastasis recti) and uses a fitness band (included free) so that women can adapt the intensity of the exercises to their individual fitness levels. The first workout, “Gentle First Moves” is ideal for post C-section recovery. All the workouts are short enough to do while baby naps.
Thousands of moms, from all over the world have transformed their bodies with my powerful, yet easy to do, specialty exercises.
