The Ultimate Baby Gift: Up-All-Night Survival Kit
From weeSpring’s guide to practical gift giving: survival kits for almost every new-baby-need. We pulled these items from our weeLists, which are weeSpring parents’ own individual lists of what got them through all of the different ages and stages.
Expecting parents have a vague sense of the sleep deprivation that’s on the horizon, but there’s truly no way to really understand the magnitude until you’re in the thick of it. Our Up All Night Survival Kit is less about the parent surviving than it is about prevention — and this trio is one of our go-to baby gifts.

THE BASICS (this will run in the $40 to $50 range)
Happiest Baby on the Block DVD, because Harvey Karp is pretty much a genius
Velcro Swaddles, because babies can be little Houdiinis
Wubbanub (the Happiest Baby explains why)
If you want to go all out, consider adding one (or more!) of these:
Cloud B Sleep Sheep, because white noise (at a reasonable volume) can make a world of difference
Fisher-Price Rock N Play, because some babies just need movement
Dropcam, so you can see what’s going on without opening the door
Magic Merlin’s Sleepsuit, which looks kooky but parents swear by it
aden + anais swaddles, the most popular product on weeSpring
