Baby Showers and Gifts

When we begin to talk about baby shower gifts, it is clear they can be a wide variation of gifts from the very practical to the extremely bizarre. If you have ever been invited to a baby shower, you know that there are two different kinds of gifts you can give the new mom: the gifts that impress her and are useless, and the very practical stuff. If you choose the latter she will always appreciate the gift much more. When we speak about useful baby gifts, we refer to casseroles, or anything you can just heat up to prepare dinner. Commonly baby gifts can vary from extremely practical things, like disposable diapers to things that are bizarre such as a grinder for turning steamed veggies into homemade baby food.

It is normal that the preferences both of the mother and of the infant vary greatly, so that what is "essential" for one mother can be completely pointless for another mom. I will give you some examples: Diaper Genie , baby-wipe warmers, baby washcloths, hooded towels, Boppy pillows and baby swings. Anything that is related to feeding, like bottles, pacifiers, formula or breast-feeding supplies, breast pads, pump, milk storage bags, can be risky as a present, since it's hard to know what a baby will like.

But here are some baby gifts that will be highly appreciated by any parent: diapers, wipes, burp cloths -- quilted cloth diapers are the best, and make great dust cloths down the road, blankets, terrycloth covers for changing-table pads, crib sheets, especially nice flannel or soft jersey cotton. We can add to the list waterproof mattress pad for the crib or practical clothing in larger sizes. Most said they had too many newborn-sized outfits and too few for 6 months or older babies. So keep this in mind as you shop.
