The Perfect Baby Gift for Newborns

“No one likes change but babies in diapers.” Barbara Johnson*

The welcoming of a new baby into this world brings so much joy and excitement for friends and family members and especially the new parents. The birth of a baby brings new beginnings, ideas, challenges, and successes for both the baby and parents. There are plenty of new decisions to make to ensure your baby will grow up healthy, strong, and happy.

Aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, and grandparents will want to shower your new baby with gifts. As a new parent, don’t be afraid to ask for certain gifts you’ll need or to register online or at a store so people will know what you need or want. For example, you may only want natural and organic products for your baby, and as gift buyer you may want to introduce new parents to a natural lifestyle. Here are some great ideas for the perfect baby gift.

One of the best gifts you can give is diapers. You should buy either cloth or chlorine free diapers. This is such a great gift because on average newborns will go through 12 diapers a day, 84 a week, and 360 per month. That’s a lot of diaper changes! Older babies usually wear about eight diapers a day. Most new parents will agree that receiving diapers is one of the most perfect gifts because it’ll help them save money for other expenses.

A great gift to go along with the diapers is a natural diaper ointment. It is important for babies to have diaper ointment with every changing so they won’t get diapers rash. Natural ointments can be found as sprays, balms, and oils. They are made with natural ingredients such as Kukui Nut Oil, Emu Oil, Aloe Vera Oil, and Tea Tree Oil. You could prepare a gift basket with a spray, balm, and oil so that the parents can sample different types of natural baby products and include a couple of cloth diapers and bottles to make the basket complete.

Babies will also need a lot of bottles during the day, so you can find some cute baby bottles. There are different types and brands of bottles, so you may want to ask the parents first which type they’d prefer. Or, buy a bottle that you have used for your children that you really liked. To make the gift look really cute and presentable, you could use a lot of curly ribbons wrapped around the bottles in light pastel pinks or blues. If you want to keep with the organic theme, you can buy organic bottles that are BPA free.
The life of a new baby is something to celebrate and is a great way to shower the new baby with gifts.
