Sh*t That I Knit has always held a special place in our hearts. They just launched a baby bundle set that includes a baby beanie and a baby blanket. Like all of Sh*t That I Knit’s products, these are handmade by women in Lima, Peru who are earning a fair wage. The baby bundle comes in three colors, and you can even add your little one’s monogram or embroider for free. This is the gift Mom will love — and feel good about.

Attention new moms: Don’t let pumping slow you down. The Elvie Pump was a top recommendation from KCM moms. It’s the first-ever silent wearable breast pump. This little gadget slides right into your bra and will do the work for you. The pump has a stimulation and expression mode, as well as seven intensity settings, so you can find the level that is most comfortable for you. Did we mention it also connects to your smartphone? Through the Elvie app, you can start and stop the pump and track the pumping history for each breast. This is a must-have for the new moms out there who are constantly on the go.
