Can’t get enough diapers! Ask if she’s planning on cloth or disposable and stock up! Clothes of course. Crib sheets are important because sometimes the baby’s mess them faster than you can replace them haha!

What great news for your co-worker and how sweet of you and others to want to do something for her.  Some of my favorite things that we have are a Nosefrida and the Puj Tub.  They aren’t big, expensive things but totally go-to items for us.  If you like those for an idea maybe do a basket full of hygiene items: washcloths, hooded towels, shampoo/body wash, and lotion with one of them.

How amazing for your co-worker! I can only imagine how she must be feeling.

I’d be going for the hamper style idea, bits of everything – then she will have at least a head start in all areas. πŸ™‚

Prepared meals that she can put in the freezer!

If you are not big on cooking, you could take a casserole dish, put a weight in it, slip in a gift  certificate to a takeout place near her, wrap the whole thing in foil.

Tell her this is dinner for some night when she doesn’t feel like cooking. Also tell her the instructions are inside.

I’m not a Mommy but I think what you’re doing is great! Maybe formula since she wont be breast feeding obviously? I know formula can be expensive so that could really help her out! The basic things will end up saving her trips/money alonf the way so those are always great to start with!

Oh wow how exciting! What about something like a baby sling? Being able to carry the baby close would probably help with bonding, considering the two have only just met!

I’ve said this a million times here, but the Aden and Anais blanket pack and Trumpette socks are the best gifts ever!  If I don’t know what to get, that’s the direction I go πŸ™‚
