When is the baby due?

My mom just gifted me a big basket of beautiful board books.  I loved the counting and alphabet books illustrated by Charley Harper, and another one called “ten little fingers and ten little toes”.  And there’s even one called “eco babies wear green”.  I loved getting board books since I know we’ll be able to use them sooner than regular books.

Even though I’m still in the first tri, I know I would enjoy anything that helps me feel pretty and feminine.  Certificates for haircuts or pedis are great, and I know I would love pretty pajamas or a robe.

Burts bees products for both mama and baby might also be a good bet!

Do you knit-crochet or sow? I crocheted a baby blanket for my Maid/Matron of Honor and I made her a flannel blanket big enough that she’ll be able to use it for the little one for a long while. She loved it.

I think books are always a nice gift. What about a baby bjorn or some other sort of baby-wearing wrap? Another idea is some picture frames that she could use in the nursery. Or does she have a nice baby book yet? Perhaps you could splurge on that?

Prenatal Massage!

Does she have a registry yet? Anything off of there would be much appreciated I’m sure. πŸ˜€

@Bellanouva:

It’s specifically geared towards expecting mothers so you want to find a spa that does that. Even the tables are different I believe.

I got my SIL a book from I See Me. They’re beautiful books that use the baby’s name to spell out a personalized story .

@hopefloats:

I LOVE those! All our nieces and nephew have one. πŸ™‚

Does she have any trouble sleeping? I would LOVE a snoogle right now but they are expensive.

I am a pretty “crunchy” mom, and my sister wants to do a lot of the things I do: cloth diaper, breastfeed, etc (she’s pregnant now). I threw her shower, so I didn’t feel like I had to get her a super extravangant gift, but I still wanted to get her something. I bought her a bag full of essentials: California Baby body wash/lotion/diaper rash cream, natural baby wipes, cloths to use as cloth wipes, a bottle of detergent suitable for cloth diaper washing, and cloth nursing pads. I also wanted to get her a gift for her stay in the hospital, so I bought a “wet bag” (cloth bag where you store dirty cloth diapers in between cleanings…it holds in the smell- they have lots of cute ones on etsy), a book, and a GC to a salon to get her hair cut after the baby (so she feels “pretty” even when she’s all spit up on and hasn’t slept! lol.

When I first had my baby, some of my favorite gifts were: diapers/wipes, a girly nightgown that just made me feel “pretty”, GCs for coffee and panera so I could get out of the house with my newborn and not break the bank, nursing pads (OMG I used so many!!), baby carriers (I had 4 and used them all!) and books. I love all the board books my now 2-year-old has. Especially the classics. 

HTH!
