Are you looking for a new mom gift idea that is unique and will stand out of the pile of baby gifts at her baby shower? Or maybe the new mom has had her baby and you would like to treat her to a special something during these early months. A unique idea for the new mom is something that is both to be enjoyed for her and the baby - matching Mommy and baby pajamas! Life as a new mom is not easy, so a matching mom and baby gift is an ideal way to ensure you remember Mommy when choosing your baby gift.
Matching Mommy and baby pajamas are not only adorable, but will be truly appreciated as the new mom is sure to spend lots of time in the early months caring for her baby during all hours of the day or night. Pajamas for mom that keep her cozy and comfy, while her baby wears a matching outfit, will help keep the new mom's spirits and energy up. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when choosing your matching mom and baby pajamas:
- Size: Remember, a new mom has just delivered her baby and it will be awhile before she sheds that extra baby weight, so don't skimp of the sizing for mom's pajamas. Choose a style that is loose-fitting and select a generous size for mom. For baby's outfit, select a size that will be able to be worn even past the newborn stage. Choose a 6 month or 12 month size.
- Style: Be appreciative of the season when choosing luxurious pajamas for mom and matching baby outfit. For summer months, a tank or short-sleeve pajama style will be much appreciated, while a long-sleeve, fleece or sweatshirt pajama set will work better in winter months.
- Colors: Mom's pajamas should be chosen to fit her personal preference. Baby's outfit should match the gender of the baby. Great unisex colors are white, yellow and green. Mom will also appreciate cute prints on her pajamas that coordinate with baby's outfit.
