On the path to parenthood, moms-to-be naturally make a big fuss over their future bundles of joy. Sometimes, though, those soon-to-be mamas need to be reminded that they deserve a little TLC during this special time, too. And since the 2016 Amazon Cyber Monday sales for maternity gear are so good, it's as though the company was sending a message straight to new moms telling them to carve out a few moments to focus on their needs this holiday weekend.
In fact, Amazon packed so many deals and discounts into its Cyber Monday sale that they decided to kick it off early and give it a new moniker: Cyber Week. Throughout the weekend leading up to Monday, Amazon shoppers can enjoy major markdowns on everything from technology to — you guessed it — maternity gear.
Although there isn't a designated maternity deals section under Amazon's Cyber Week deals banner, the deals are ripe for the picking if you're willing to do a bit of digging. However, since we know how precious every minute is to moms-to-be, we went ahead and scoured the sales to bring you the best Cyber Week deals on maternity gear being offered by Amazon this year.
A Stylish Maternity Tote Bag
Just because she doesn't need a full-blown diaper bag just yet doesn't mean she couldn't benefit from a multitude of maternity-friendly pockets. The Petunia Pickle Bottom Downtown Tote ($87; marked down from $139) will see her through a stylish pregnancy with room to discretely stash mom-to-be needs, like nursing pads.
A Kit To Help Minimize Her "Tiger Stripes"
It's perfectly natural — and incredibly common — for moms-to-be to get stretch marks at some point during their pregnancy. They are nothing to be ashamed of; many moms call them them their "tiger stripes," in fact. However, it's OK if you want to tone them down too, in which case the Mustela Belly and Bust Stretch Marks Survival Kit ($25; marked down from $50) is just the ticket.
An Electric Toothbrush To Keep Her Pearly Whites Pearly
Here's some maternity intel you don't hear much about — pregnancy hormones can be pretty hard on your dental health, according to Mayo Clinic. So pick up a Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean rechargaeable toothbrush ($180; marked down from $220) to help your favorite mom-to-be fight the good fight.
Nursing Pads To Conceal Lactation Leaks
Hey, it happens to the best of us — springing a leak once your milk comes in is kind of an inevitability. But you can drastically reduce the possibility of any embarrassing public blouse stains by always keeping an arsenal of soft, super-absorbent nursing pads — like the Chicco nursing Pads ($13 for 60; marked down from $17) — at arm's reach.
A Cozy Robe For When She Can't Even
Is building a tiny human inside of your belly a beautiful thing? Absolutely. Is it also entirely exhausting? You betcha. Not only will a cushy robe — like the Simplicity ultra soft plush kimono bathrobe ($30; marked down from $37) — comfort mom-to-be through tough preggo days, but she can also stash it in her hospital bag so she'll have something more comfy than a hospital gown to rock post-birth.
An Ergonomic Carrier To Prepare For Baby
If you plan to "wear" your baby, a smart bet is to get your carrier now and try it on for comfort before baby arrives and is ready to go mobile. True story: I didn't try my first carrier on until the first time we wanted to actually take baby out in it, and I hated it. The Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier One ($122; marked down from $200) gets great reviews from moms and dads alike.
A Body Oil To Moisturize Her Skin
Pregnancy can straight-up parch your skin. I guess that makes sense, as you are harboring a tiny human who likely leeches all your moisture. Regardless, you're gonna want a good moisturizer to get your through pregnancy, and oils are particularly hydrating. Bonus? The Johnson's Shea & Cocoa Butter Baby Oil ($5; marked down from$7) can pull double duty once the little one arrives.
A Cover To Give Her (And Baby) Privacy
She won't technically need this until baby makes his or her big debut, but she'll definitely appreciate already having it at the ready. After all, a whole lotta nursing happens in the hospital — with a whole lotta people buzzing about. The Corewill privacy baby nursing cover ($9; marked down from $30) is ideal if mom feels more comfortable with a little coverage during feedings.
