    Often, people get frustrated by tons of new baby gifts and products sold through Walmart or K-mart.

    But they absolutely have no idea how to pick up the right choice!

    I sure understand that the birth of a new baby is an exciting time for any family.

    But hey, people who are not parents usually have a more difficult time choosing new born baby gifts , right?

    If you're one of them, you're not alone.

    I have to tell you that knowing what to buy for a new baby does not have to be challenging. To give you a hand, I list 5 options below you can consider if you really want to avoid gift purchasing duplication.

    1. Baby Swing

    Once a baby is born, new moms have very little time for themselves.

    The baby must come first. Diaper changes, feedings, playtime, and colic can eat up the majority of a day's hours. For some people, dinnertime became a nightmare. Their children would scream as soon as the scent of dinner filled the air. The infant swing is the only item in which you could place the screaming infant and manage to wolf down dinner.

    2. Baby Books and Videos

    Every new baby needs early education. If you still remember those chunky wooden blocks from yester-year we all played with, a "ABC" baby book would be a perfect choice for your baby. I know there are new baby gifts of 26 chunky board books, one for each letter of the alphabet, in their perfect carrying case. Each book introduces children through words and images, planting the seed for their first creative juices.

    For video product, I suggest the Baby Shakespeare from the BabyEinstein Collection. It's an engaging exploration of vocabulary common to infants and toddlers through the words of twelve master poets and the vision of a master photographer.

    3. Baby Toys

    When looking for new baby gifts for any young child, you should not always get educational or fun toys. Some toys should stimulate their minds and help them develop their intellectual skills. The other toys should revolve around simply playing.

    For example, my daughter's kitchen set has lots of food and dining items. She's grasped a concept of setting a table and what foods go with what foods. She's developed an imagination and likes to play "pretend" now as well. I adore watching her.

    4. Baby Monitors

    Do you know why baby monitors are great devices allowing you to keep an eye on the little one while he/she's sleeping? If you have a baby of your own, you know exactly what I mean. We have to say when it comes to our babies, we can never be too cautious in the home.

    If you're shopping around for baby monitors as new baby gifts, it is wise to check online. Tons of reviews are offered on these new baby gifts. However, to find a good monitor, you don't have to break the bank. There are reasonably priced baby monitors found online and in baby stores as well. You want a product that will get the job done, but you needn't go overboard.

    5. Baby Sling

    The last item that you could not have lived without is a baby sling.

    Many children are clingy infants who hate being put down. A baby sling can help your back out while carrying around an infant all day, and it keeps the baby happy and quiet. When shopping for new baby gifts, definitely look into baby slings with good shoulder padding.

    Final suggestion: When it comes to new baby gifts, think outside of the traditional box. A unique and unusual gift for the parents will ensure you won't be copying someone else.
