    Personally, I would just stick to the mom’s baby registry. See if she has registered for any of these items and purchase them. Unique presents are nice, but you also want to help her, complete her registry, plus she may have some of these items already.

  3. I got one from a friend to take to the hospital with me.. it was the best thing ever and I still use it when we travel! It came in a little pink & blue mini suitcase.
    In it was:
    A headband for sweat
    Advil soft gels
    Shampoo & Conditioner travel size
    2 mini toothbrushes (for Mom & Dad)
    toothpaste travel size
    A notepad
    A sudoku book
    A pen
    A razer
    a few breast pads
    face wash & cleansing pads
    Daddy essentials:
    Shaving cream & a razor for him
    Baby Essentials:
    a beanie hat
    lotion & body wash for baby kit
    2 diapers & a pack of wipes
    a soothie

    I loved this gift.. and would recommend this gift for any expecting mommy.. she’ll love it. ;-)

  4. I have never heard the poem , but what that other mother said is so cute!. When I put things together for a shower I usually get a cute blue or pink laundry basket, so that can come on handy later and I put in it, Tylonal, pacifiers, a grooming kit,. nail cutters, aspirator, cute outfit, wipes, diapers, alchol swabes, A&D diaper rash ointment, powder, head to toe baby wash,johnsons night time wash and lotion,wash clothes, burp clothes, spoons, bibs,teehing ring, orajel q-tip swabs, and whatever else you feel will get her by. I think it is neat to get this stuff because you actually need it and most people give you clothes for the shower, and this is a practical gift.
