Baby Shower Gifts: Honest Advice from a Mom of Three

When it comes to baby shower gifts, it's easy to get overwhelmed with the endless options available. As a mom of three, I've learned that some gifts are more practical and useful than others. So, if you're looking for honest advice on what to gift a new mom-to-be, keep reading!

Skip the Baby Blankets

While baby blankets are undeniably cute and cozy, they often end up unused or forgotten in the nursery. Instead of opting for yet another blanket, consider giving a gift card from Lil Helper. Whether the mom chooses to use cloth diapers or explore other cool products, this gift card allows her to pick exactly what she needs.

Back to Basic versus Luxury Baby Shower Gifts

If you want to splurge on luxurious baby shower gifts that will make a difference in the new parents' lives, look no further than the Lil Helper SleepSaver crib sheet. This innovative crib sheet is not only incredibly soft and comfortable for the baby (with a beautiful minky printed top) but also designed to be a completely waterproof mattress protector. A gift that is truly needed, but designed by rocket scientists to be the best you’ll find.

Many customers (and myself) actually find our kiddos sleep better on SleepSavers than compared to other mattresses. I think this is due to the fact that the minky is ultra soft and absorbent so there’s not damp drool puddles making your little one uncomfortable. Trust me, any exhausted parent will appreciate this thoughtful gift!

Keep an eye on the Lil Helper website: more sizes coming soon!

Think Reusable with Biggie Bibs and Swimsaver Swim Diapers

When it comes to baby essentials, reusable items are always a win-win. Consider gifting Biggie Bibs and Swimsaver swim diapers – both practical and eco-friendly choices.

Biggie bibs provide excellent coverage during messy meal times while being easy to clean afterwards. They are absorbent on one side and wipeable waterpoof PUL on the other. They also come in a variety of cool prints. And Biggie Bibs also feature adjustable neck snaps and a snap in place optional pocket, so they meet lots of needs!

Swimsaver swim diapers are not only adorable but also reusable, making them an ideal choice for pool days or trips to the beach. The fit kids 10 - 45 lbs so will last all the way to potty training as well!

Again, the key here is to buy practical baby shower gifts that folks will get a lot of use out of.

Lifesaver Mat: Versatile Baby Shower Gifts That Last Forever

While cute baby outfits are always appreciated, babies tend to outgrow them quickly. If you want your gift to have longevity and be truly versatile, go for the Lifesaver Mat. This multipurpose mat is perfect for tummy time, sensory play, potty training, and so much more. It's a gift that will grow with the baby and be useful throughout their early years and beyond.

Don't Forget About Mom

Amidst all the excitement of welcoming a new baby, it's important not to forget about the mom-to-be herself. Consider including some bite bags for snacks and reusable breast pads like Hera Breast Pads in your gift. These small but thoughtful items can make a big difference in ensuring mom's comfort during breastfeeding. And even if she doesn't breastfeed, snack bags and breast pads are still incredibly useful for on-the-go new moms.

Remember, when it comes to baby shower gifts, it's the thought behind them that truly counts. By opting for practical and versatile gifts like those mentioned above, you'll be sure to bring joy and usefulness to the new parents' lives. Happy gifting!
