I like giving the best gift at the baby shower. Call me competitive, but I just feel that as a mom of two young kids that I should be better equipped to pick out the perfect gift than Great-Aunt Mary who still thinks the baby should be sleeping on her stomach and has no idea what a Bumbo seat is.
(You know, the sort of gift that I came looking to CMP for before I became a contributor here.)
Here’s a perfect example: The Bebe au Lait gift set which includes their awesome rigid-neck nursing cover and three super-plush matching burp cloths. Their prints are modern and sweet and won’t make the nursing mother cringe when she’s got to cover her whole torso with it in public. The rigid neck is perfect for keeping an eye on baby while nursing (or more importantly, baby’s eye on mama).
Plus, in my experience, a new mama may be more concerned with making sure that baby has practical things like carseats and cribs and may neglect some of those little pampering things that help out in those first few months. –Carrie
