Baby fever everywhere! Just kidding. No baby fever here for me but I am knee deep in baby shower invitations. I could not be more excited for my friends bringing babies into their families and being me, want to buy them every amazing gift they could possibly need. Sadly, that's not financially possible. Ha!
My go to gift is a Lillebaby carrier. I am so obsessed with all of mine, yep, I have four! The last baby shower I was invited to, my coworker told me that her mother had already purchased her a buckle carrier but was really interested in trying out a wrap. Sadly, Lillebaby does not offer a wrap but I found an amazingly well reviewed wrap on Amazon to try out! The Baby Sling Carrier Wrapy is the perfect wrap for a new mom. It's rated a 4.9 out of 5 with over 150 reviews!
Plus it's extra comfy, made of 95% cotton and 5% Spandex, one size fits all, and it's machine washable and a dryer safe.
To be honest, I usually budget around $75 for baby shower gifts because if I'm sitting through a shower, I must really like you. Even though this wrap is valued at close to $140, it's on super sale (as of the posting date) and was less than $30 so I had more money to build up a basket of my favorite things for the new baby!
I always include:
1. a breastfeeding scarf, like this one from Itzy Ritzy.
2. Bottles, we especially love Joovy, Avent and Dr. Brown.
3. Gripe water or gas drops.
4. Avent pacifiers - I literally owned 30 of these with each kid.
5. A Tug Tune toy from Bright Starts.
6. A good book. A stand by like Good Night Moon or Pajama Time are always good.
7. Pajamas. The best are made by Carters. Feeties or sleep gowns are my favorites.
I grabbed a small bucket at Target, some tissue paper, and also used Picmonkey to make a couple labels for my favorites and was ready to go!
I love giving moms gifts I know that I loved and can't wait to welcome even more babies this spring and summer!
