I have been to my fair share of baby showers, planned a few, and even had one thrown in my honor! There are so many amazing baby shower registry must haves, but I want to help you with a great starter list of the top 5 registry must haves, this is for anyone who has never been to a baby shower, had a child, or pretty much wants a great list of items to create a really great gift basket with essentials any new Mom would love!
In celebration of popular reality TV couple Sean and Catherine Lowe from “The Bachelor” getting ready to expect their first child together, they are teaming up with Dreft and Lowe’s to share their journey through #Amazinghood and give fans a glimpse in to all the crazy, fun, and messy moments they will enjoy in the years ahead. They were celebrated with a “Loads of Love” baby shower on April 27th. Over the new year you can share in their Lowe’s journey by following Dreft on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as they share exclusive content and messy memories.
Dreft is the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians and the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for baby clothes! Dreft has three amazing products now; Dreft stage 1: Newborn; Dreft State 2: Active Baby, and Dreft Blissfuls! Dreft is always on the registry must haves list!
I am often reminding people that Dreft is gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s sensitive skin but also tough on stains and always has that baby fresh scent! The Stage 1 Newborn has been around for over 80 years! It is able to be used in standard and HE washers! The Active Baby is perfect for those stains that your on the go tots will create, and the new blissfuls are going to dissolve in water and give that long lasting baby fresh scent!
The first thing you need to know is that all children, tiny as can be to grown, are going to create messes! This is why parents seemingly go through a lot of clothing in the early years! From diaper accidents to spit up, to the gobs of green peas that will come flooding out of a child’s mouth, stains are the number one enemy with clothing! Parenthood, is messy! I think I stepped in some model clay today and was scraping it off my leather sofa. I look back at my baby shower from 2013 and realize how much fun it was to have those who loved me surrounding my husband and I!
5 Baby Shower Registry Must Haves;
- Dreft. You will be doing laundry for years, but for now, make sure it is going to be sensitive enough for your baby’s skin!
- Bathtub thermometer. First instinct for a super mess = bath! Make sure that the water is at a safe temperature for your newborn/infant/toddler. I personally have had this one since the day my son was born!
- 100% Organic Cotton Muslin Blankets. These are the softest for babies. They are breathable and great to swaddle in. They also double easily as burp rags or changing areas in a bind.
- Nasal aspirator. When a baby can breath, a baby is happier.
- Natural Rubber Teether. (The favorite and best is a little pricy but worth it!)
Everyone is going to load you up with a plethora of clothing, diapers, wipes, and big baby gear. But in all honestly, thinking about the little things, really matters! The things that you need right away and might have forgotten. The item that are not drilled in to you with baby shower registry lists. If you are creating a gift for a baby shower, lots of smaller items that matter, really do make a huge statement of thoughtfulness to the parents to be!
