Baby Shower Gifts a New Mom REALLY Wants

If you are a new mom then you can understand the importance of educating single friends of what to gift for a baby shower. I mean, before my friends started having babies I had no clue what would be a good gift for a baby shower… and I’m still learning the ins and outs of what is needed.

We take the guess work out of your gift giving with some favorite items below from some of my favorite moms. (All my friends with babies helped put this together 😉 )

Would love to hear your must-have baby items!?

    Baby Wipe Warmer. Made a MASSIVE change in the wailing at diaper-changing time. Baby seemed to really appreciate it, too.

    Crib sheets.. Sounds crazy.. I changed my son’s crib sheets every morning and night. Like us, there is nothing more cozy than clean sheets. Shoes, nothing bothers me more than when mom’s take their kids out without shoes on. Sandals, whatev’s… Need them. Clothes for 6-9 months. Everyone buys newborn, in most cases they outgrow them by the time they get through them all. 1st aid kit.. It’s these things that mom’s don’t really think about, but being a mom, I am telling you, she will thank you later. PS; it’s not really what mom’s want, it’s more for what baby will need. Trust me on this. 🙂 Happy baby shopping. So much fun.

    definitely clothes for the 6+ month range! I am a new mom and wasn’t able to get through all my adorable newborn outfits before he was too big! not to mention you don’t go out and about often when they’re that young, so no one gets to see the cuteness! A lot of stuff is determined by the baby so it’s hard to get it all before hand. Honest brand organic healing cream is great for any dry skin or rashes! Also, if you are a formula using mom, the to-go containers that hold 3 seperate meals are perfect when you’re going out and about. Takes the hassle out of measuring or lugging a big tub of formula with you!
