You know that mama. The one that never leaves home without her baby carrier. Hey, you might even be that mama! If you are, then this list is for you!

Whether you are shopping for a baby shower gift, mother’s day present, or looking for the perfect gift for postpartum recovery, this post is full of no-miss gifts for moms that love to babywear. 

Carrying your baby in a carrier is the perfect way to meet their need for closeness, comfort and warmth. And, carriers and wraps free up your hands and ease the burden on your back. Many babywearing parents end up spending hours wearing their carriers.

These thoughtful gift ideas are designed to help moms enjoy that special bonding time even more. From practical items to stylish accessories, here’s what the babywearing mama’s on your list really want this year:

Diaper bag that stores her carrier: To keep that baby carrier at the ready, gift her a diaper bag with the perfect storage compartment. The 2-in-1 Provisions Bag Backpack from Petunia Pickle Bottom is thoughtfully designed with a lower compartment that’s the perfect size for a folded carrier. Or, put the carrier in the top compartment and use the antimicrobial PEVA-lined lowed compartment for a breast pump and pumping supplies. With an oversized tech pocket and padded shoulder straps, this versatile bag is the ideal gift for new moms.

Baby carrier teething pads/suck pads: Accessorize her favorite carrier with teething covers, sometimes called suck pads. These covers prevent teething babies from chewing on the carrier. Not only do they protect the carrier, they help soak up any drool so baby is also dry and comfortable. Plus, they allow mom to add a touch of personality, print, and individuality to her carrier. There are many whimsical, colorful options created by mompreneurs on Etsy. LÍLLÉbaby also offers a set of organic cotton teething pads.

Pacifier and clip set: No more dirty or lost pacifiers. Gift her a pacifier clip and their favorite binky. She can attach the clip to the carrier straps to ensure her little one’s favorite soother is always within easy reach, and never falls to the floor when they are done. Find her favorite brand, or check out these clips and all-natural rubber pacifiers from BIBS.

Another carrier: Give her more of what she loves! Give her another carrier in a fun, limited  edition print. Consider purchasing her a new type of carrier to try, like a ring sling. Or, upgrade her to a toddler carrier, like the LÍLLÉbaby CarryOn. Toddler carriers provide enhanced comfort and support when carrying children that are 18 months+.

Doll carrier for her mini me: Encourage playtime that mimics the real-time joy of babywearing. LÍLLÉbaby’s doll carriers encourage little ones to cuddle special stuffies and toy playmates as they adventure through their day. Adjustable, comfortable, and machine-washable, these carriers are the perfect gift to share her love of babywearing with her children.

Set of mesh laundry bags: This useful gift will come in handy. Most buckled carriers and baby wraps are machine washable, but should be washed in laundry bags. When not being used to keep her favorite carrier spit-up free, they’re perfect for everything from socks to stuffed animals.

Show your favorite babywearing mama you care by giving her some essentials she needs (but probably won’t buy herself). These thoughtful gifts are sure to be treasured (and more importantly, used!) for years to come.
