With so many arrivals and parents-to-be, Hollywood's got babies on the brain!
Rosie Pope, founder of Rosie Pope Maternity and star of Bravo's upcoming Pregnant in Heels, offers gift suggestions for all the new moms, dads and babies.
Since extra items like diapers and changing pads can weigh down new moms like Alicia Keys, hand over a chic diaper bag (yes, there is such a thing!) like the Rosie Pope London Shopper ($365). It boasts a washable interior with ample pockets and discreet stroller straps.
Fast-paced moms (like expectant mother Christina Applegate) will also appreciate a care package of fast beauty fixes. MAC Nail Lacquer ($13) leaves a no-streak finish and comes in "oodles of colors to pick from," Pope tells UsMagazine.com. Also, expectant moms like Melissa Rycroft and Jen Schefft can use the multi-tasking Smith's Rosebud Salve ($5.60) during pre- and post-birth. "It's been around for over half a century and excellent for puckering up lips and soothing diaper rash," Pope tell Us.
A gift that's great for the entire family -- like Lance Armstrong and girlfriend, Anna, who just welcomed their second daughter -- is HBO's Classical Baby DVD Set ($27). "It not only fascinates wee ones, but parents alike," says Pope. The discs are full of classical music, dance and artwork so they "allow for some much needed down time without feeling guilty about your baby watching mindless TV."
"Let's not forget about the dads," says Pope. Give new fathers like Neil Patrick Harris a little TLC with Molten Brown Ultra Light Bai Ji Hydrator, the perfect post-shaving moisturizer. "It will make any dad feel pampered," Pope tells Us.
