The days of pink or blue sheet cakes are gone. They've been replaced by Instagram-worthy balloon towers, trays of delectable sweets, themed parties, and gifts that the new mom will actually want to use. Here are some of the top 2019 shower trends, baby shower gift ideas, and party ideas that will make an impression on your guests.

Sip & See

For some people, traditional showers are giving way to post-baby sip and sees. These parties allow friends and family to admire the new baby, still shower the new parents with gifts, and have a perfect excuse to pop some bottles. They can be as extravagant or simple as the host and mom would like, making them perfectly customizable to your budget and preferences.

Co-ed Showers

Another current take on traditional showers are co-ed BBQs or parties to celebrate the coming baby. Rather than leaving out half of your friends and loved ones, these parties allow everyone to be involved and celebrate.

It’s All About the Decor

If you do decide to go the traditional shower route, your best way to keep things trendy and current is to tie in the decor. From balloon arches and creative uses of the mom and dad’s baby pictures to diaper cakes and themed buffets, this is your way to get creative and fun.

Double Duty Treats

Treats for showers go way beyond having something simple to fill up plates between games and gifts. From macaron towers to unicorn cakes, your on-trend treats should look as good as they taste.

Gifts that Matter

The days of experienced mothers gifting random baby things are gone. Baby registries make it easier to make purchased that the mother-to-be will actually want, and group gifts are a great way to split up the cost of the high-dollar but extremely wonderful big ticket items. From baby monitors to Magic Sleepsuits, there are certain gifts that will always be considered staples. To buy the best possible baby gifts, head online today and check out the options available from the Baby Merlin Company that are sure to make a difference in any new mother's life.

Top 5 Things No One Tells You About Breastfeeding

From our friends at Boston Naps: We have found that almost every mother wishes she was better prepared for breastfeeding. 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.

Do you ever wonder if you keep your baby awake ALL day, will they sleep ALL night? If you keep them up late, will they sleep in past the dreaded 5am wakeup?
