While new moms won't likely actually sleep when baby sleeps, they do cherish nap time so they can get a break and recharge. Getting some rest during the day so Mom isn't overly tired will help her sleep better at night. Gift her this: "Please Do Not Ring Doorbell" wood door sign. (Saltbox House Designs, $12)
Once a new mom puts her head on the pillow, she doesn't want any distractions until Baby wakes again. Ensure she sees no signs of unnecessary light with this Wildfox "Hibernating" sleep mask. (Nordstrom, $34)
New moms can have a lot on their minds, and that can mean it can be hard to fall asleep. Using lavender essential oils can help a new mom relax and fall asleep quickly, so try lavender essential oils (Mountain Rose Herbs, $13) with the VicTsing electric aromatherapy essential oil diffuser and cool mist humidifier.

If those pajamas can make nighttime nursing a little more comfortable, that is even better. This Dottie maternity and nursing cami and short set will make sure Mom is just as comfy when she is up feeding as she is when she slides back into bed. (Milk & Baby, $50)
While a new mom doesn't have a lot of time for herself, this luxurious chamomile lavender bedroom candle can help her steal a few minutes to relax while she gets ready for bed.
