Our church is a fast growing church, partly because of the number of babies born in our congregation. We all do our part, it's a must for church planting. Seriously, in 2011, 10 babies will be born into the Elevation staff. Now that is a lot of baby showers!
And since having had a baby shower myself recently, I thought I would write a sequel to the post I did a few weeks ago on wedding presents.
Here are a few of my favorite baby items out right now…
Personalized paci. I am a huge fan of the pacifier. Mainly because my first child didn't use one and I wished he had. These are super cute and really unique. They make them for several different types of nipples as well. You can purchase them here, $15 for a pack of 3.
These are super cute bottle/sippy cup labels. It is a personalized rubber band that will fit on any cup or bottle. You can also put allergy alerts on them. You can purchase them here, $13 for 4 labels.
This is a Puj baby tub. I love this. Baby tubs are always awkward and bulky. This tub is made out of a type of foam, it easily hangs on the back of the door and it is made for a regular size bathroom sink. I can bathe my boys in the bath tub and Abbey in the sink all at the same time. Abbey really seems to love this. It was also super easy to take with us on vacation. You can purchase online at Target also in stores and online at Buy Buy Baby for about $40.
I love my Moby Wrap. It is the most comfortable baby wearing device I have owned. Better than the Bjorn I used for Elijah and the Seven Sling I had for Graham. The Moby is a lot of material but once you are all tied up, you are good to go! You can buy the Moby at Target for about $30. (The Seven sling is a second runner up and still a great fast option that I carry in my purse)
I loved all the clothes and accessories given to Abbey. Baby clothes are so much fun. You can never have enough sleepers. My favorites are the zipper ones from Children's Place. And you can never go wrong giving burp cloths. My last two babies have been pretty bad sitter-uppers. I love the ones that are pretty and decorative.
When I go to a shower, I love to make themed baskets. Like a beach bucket with swimming diapers, a towel and a baby bathing suit. Or a basket full of feeding accessories like bottles, cups, spoons and bowls. Or a diaper bag stuffed with diapers, wipes and the like.
I would love to hear from you, what were some of your favorite baby gifts, or what do you like to give?
