RRP $147.85 NOW $118.28
Where to Buy: ergoPouch
Treat your little one to a deliciously soft slumber with ergoPouch’s Sleepy Tales Newborn Gift Pack. It’s the perfect pressie to pop under the tree for Christmas that will be loved by your baby and any new parents, too!
The Sleepy Tales Newborn Gift Pack comes with three of ergoPouch’s best-sellers – the ever-popular Cocoon Swaddle in 1.0 TOG (ideal for summer), an adorable Long Sleeve Layer in 0.2 TOG (again, perfect for summer) and the portable Drift Away White Noise Machine.
What we love about this Christmas gift for babies is that it not only delivers a peaceful sleep for them but also for parents too, no matter where you are. Rest easy knowing Bub is safe and comfortable. The organic, newborn 1.0 TOG Cocoon Swaddle Bag features a zip-up design that is both easy to use and difficult to escape from. The 1.0 TOG rating is perfect for sleeping in room temperatures between 21-24°C, with the 0.2 TOG Long Sleeve Layer worn underneath.
The popular Drift Away White Noise Machine provides clear, quality white noise sound at a decibel level that is safe for a baby’s developing auditory system. Boasting up to 48 hours on a single charge*, Drift Away is ready for wherever your day, night or weekend takes you.
* When playing the white noise sound only on the lowest volume setting. Using the night light continuously will use up the battery life faster. Remember to charge out of the box as it only has a partial charge in the box.

More great Christmas gifts for babies and beyond
The great thing about shopping for babies is that they are pretty content with anything. Give them a spoon and they will happily chew on it. Many new parents will lean towards practical Christmas gifts for babies and those that will last for years and years to come. Some more to add to the list include a SmarTrike, a water play table, a mini trampoline or any push/pull toys that they will love when learning to walk.
In terms of smaller gifts, board book gift sets are always a hit as are plush toys, bath toys, teething toys and wall art for the nursery.
