I am in the season where so many of my friends are having babies. In my missional community group alone, there are 4 babies baking! With babies comes baby showers and baby showers require gifts. After having a baby shower of my own and doing this motherhood gig for almost a year (crazy!), I now stick to a few of my favorite baby essentials as gifts.
To be honest I was so anti Nose Frida....until Ford had a nasty cold. I assumed I would suck all his snot and have to swallow it myself but that's not the case at all! The Nose Frida is just about the most genius baby product on the market. It's something I would have never thought to buy and it has saved us from many sleepless nights (or helped us get a tad bit of sleep on sleepless nights) while Ford has been sick. Don't knock it until you try it!
Before I became a mom I wasn't sure what all the bells and whistles, pads, and bags were for and now that I consider myself a pro (exclusively nursing for going on 11 months), I can talk about breastfeeding supplies until the cows come home. I try to encourage my mama friends to breastfeed since it can be a scary road to walk down alone. Chances are, your college sorority sisters who are still partying on weeknights or your grandma's best friend from crochet club won't be buying breastfeeding supplies at your baby shower.
No matter if you choose to swaddle your baby at night or not, swaddle blankets come in handy for so many different situations! I love these Lambie & Me swaddle blankets because they are made of organic cotton muslin, perfect for any season. We had to use velcro swaddles for Ford when he was born because he would break out of blanket swaddles but I am so glad we had them on hand. We used these to cover Ford's car seat when he was a newborn in the dead of summer and continue to use them to lay down on the grass to play outside or use as a lightweight nursing cover. Unlike other cotton blankets that tend to pill and disintegrate over time, the more you wash these Lambie & Me blankets, the softer they get! I plan on reusing these for future Hart babies to come.
