Baby Gizmo Buying Guide is the first comprehensive baby product reference book designed to go to the store with you. Instead of what to buy, Heather Maclean and Hollie Schultz will teach you how to buy more than 400 different types of baby products. Featuring definitions, product history, and key features, this is a real-life, everything-you-need-to-know resource. It includes advice on whether you really need a product, when to buy it, and how long your baby will use it. The Baby Gizmo Buying Guide is perfect for first-time moms and can be purchased online at amazon. The great writing and fun "been there, really do understand what you are going through" tone will make this guide her favorite book!
Among the many things I teach my children, manners is of extreme importance. We think that it is very important for kids to say thank you (doesn't everyone?). But we're not the best at keeping up, but we have tried hard to have our older kiddos write thank you cards, or even quick hellos. Babycakes Art has helped us make it that much easier with their adorable Personalized note card/thank you notes Set of 12 with matching stickers- Robin's Egg Blue with Flowers.
Babycakes Art has many other wonderful items, from framed birth announcements, to invitations. I'll be ordering some chic thank you notes for Sara to use after her Baby Shower!

I am glad to have found Ritzy Bitzy... No more leaky bottles or milk dripping down baby's chin. Baby Bottle Bibs™ were created to absorb dribble and excess milk or formula that trickles out of babies’ mouths while they are feeding from a baby bottle. They are made with ultra soft and highly absorbent plush microfiber which provides the ultimate solution for messy bottle feedings. The absorbent collar also conveniently soaks up annoying bottle leaks! These make wonderful baby shower gifts. You can orderthe Ritzy Bitzy in either blue or pink.
Now this next item is truly the perfect baby shower or new baby gift... Get that mom-to-be an adorable Baby Bunch. Each bunch contains a full set of clothing, ranging from baby bibs, hats, socks and mitts to onesies, sleep suits and t-shirts. Perfect for newborns, the Baby Bunch is safe for hospital delivery where ordinary flowers may not be permitted, and is a useful alternative to flowers for a home visit. I gave my cousin's wife a Baby Bunch for new baby Taylor and it was the hit of the shower!
