    @sariibear:  It’s there now. The basket certainly looks full enough to me.

    You can see it now :). I have had two baby showers of my own, and personally I would have really enjoyed a gift like the one you made. It seems like you put a lot of thought into it. I was never focused on how much money any of my friends spent, just thankful they came to celebrate my baby. I don’t think you have anything to worry about, it is a sweet and thoughtful gift, which is more than enough.

    I think it is a cute idea! I haven’t had a child so I dont know exactly what she would need. But I think it is the thought that counts!

    I’ve had two kids.  Both hospital stays were very short.  One was a one night stay and the other they let me stay 2 nights since she was born late at night.  I probably wouldn’t have used much of it.  The hospital provided everything that the baby used and most of what I needed.  I used my own shower stuff.

    I’d personally go buy an outfit, board book, or blankets instead.

    while I think it’s a cute gesture.  I’d go to the clearance section at babys r us instead.

    I just had my shower last weekend and I would have loved to get this! It is such a cute and thoughtful idea! If they don’t use it in the hospital, they’ll definitley use it at home the first few weeks. 🙂

    I like it. My sister, who had c-sections and stayed a week each time, would love that. Let’s face it, she can use all that stuff after.

    I think this is a beautiful example of a useful, thoughtful gift. You are not obligated to buy anyone anything, so this is a great! I would have loved to receive this!
