A baby shower is a great opportunity for soon-to-be-mothers to prepare for a new baby. Though many expectant mothers will put together a gift registry for the shower, some aren’t sure what they’ll need when the little one arrives. When you have to choose the perfect gift for an expectant mother, you can’t go wrong with these baby shower gifts.

The Gift of Education

An expectant mother is bound to have thousands of questions about pregnancy, labor, and raising a little one. Purchase a variety of books and other educational materials for the mother-to-be. These resources will help ease the transition into parenthood. Choose books that offer differing perspectives on many topics, so she will have the resources to match her parenting style.

Diapers and Wipes

One gift you know that any new parent will need is diapers. There are never enough diapers. During the first month parents will change up to 10 dirty diapers a day. The expense on diapers starts to add up when you go through them so quickly. Help the mother-to-be by giving her something you know she will use. You can purchase disposable diapers or reusable diapers if the parents are environmentally-conscious.

Gifts to Spoil Mom

Though it’s a baby shower, any mother-to-be would appreciate a gift special for her. The transition to motherhood can be exhausting, and often new mothers forget to take care of themselves. Give her a gift of relaxation and luxury. Consider buying her some bath salts, healing lotion, or a cozy bathrobe.

Let Her Choose with a Gift Certificate

If you’re at a loss for what to get new parents, you can’t go wrong with gift cards. The mother-to-be will be able to pick out exactly what she needs once the baby comes. You can give gift cards for stores selling popular baby items, or give gift cards for much needed date nights and treats for mom.

A Good Night’s Sleep

A well-rested baby is what any new parent would ask for if they could. Which is why a Magic Sleepsuit would make a perfect gift. You can choose from a variety of calming colors in both fleece and cotton. Magic Sleepsuits are designed to help a baby transition from swaddling, giving parents ease of mind as the baby grows. They help keep baby at a comfortable temperature and provide them comfort. The Magic Sleepsuit will help a baby sleep soundly and independently – which means a good night’s sleep for you and baby.

If you’re attending a baby shower, it’s important to get her something that is useful, practical, and something she will appreciate. Don’t get overwhelmed trying to pick out a gift. Stick with these top baby shower gift ideas, like a Magic Sleepsuit, for instance.

Not only did we experience this feeling ourselves as new mothers, but we’ve found it to be true in our daily work as nurses and lactation specialists supporting breastfeeding women.

 And we’re not just talking about taking a breastfeeding class. We are talking about the opportunity for women to have more open and honest conversations about breastfeeding and their experiences.
