    Nothing. They are babies, they don't care, and their parents will not care either. : (11 votes)

    I don’t think the newborns-1 yrs old need anything. They won’t notice and the parents shouldnt really care/understand.

    I think for kids that little you really don’t have to do anything as they won’t appreciate it or notice.  If you were to get them something, I’d go with a small toy or something similar.  But the things you listed for a 2-year-old and up don’t seem very good for a newborn-1 year old.

    I wouldn’t really do anything for the newborns, unless they are teething, then some teething bisquits might be nice. You might also consider some small trinkets that won’t fit inside their mouths. You wouldn’t want them to choke. You might want to check with a couple of the parents to see what they would suggest.

    I voted for something else, I don’t know what exactly, but I’m sure the parents would appreciate something to occupy/keep the newborns from fussing.  There are cheap toys out there for babies…

    I voted nothing. I really like the kiddie bags for the older kids. I read an idea in a book for putting the kids stuff in a sandbox type bucket, which I thought was a super cute idea. I’m still trying to decide if I want to do this for my reception. 

    The only other thing I wanted to mention that (if you haven’t already bought anything yet) buy Smarties instead of M&Ms. Smarties are nut free while M&Ms are not. I only say this because there are so many small children with nut allergies these days.

    It would be a nice gesture, you could always ask your bride. 🙂

    here are my ideas:

    Rattles, toys perfect for newborn to age 1.  If you know the gender, that’s even more helpful!  Also, you could give them things they can have in their room when they’re older, like statues of wolves (non-scary ones), dreamcatchers, etc.  Just be sure to tell the parent it’s in there. 

    You could also give them blankets, or little hats, or little things like that.  Maybe a decoration that can be hung in their room.

    Oh, and here’s a weird idea that would work: any squeaky toy suitable for a dog, is suitable for a child.  (not much difference, if you think about it… if a dog won’t get choked or hurt, neither can a child….)

    Go to the baby section of a store and get the toys from there.  Oh!!!  And you can also get personalized bibs, too, if you want to do that…  you can also do onsies and t-shirts for babies to kids, so that could be kinda cool. 

    Also, if they parents allow it, you can give newborns to age 1 suckers.  Without a filling.  (like the ones from a bank…).  I did that with my two and took them away once they had sharp points or got too small.  It’s really a parental thing, since you have to keep an eye on the baby and the sucker, lol.

    hope this helps!!!
