    Default Do you think this is an OK baby shower gift??

    So I'm going to a friend's shower on the weekend and I wanted to get her something I know will be really useful. I was thinking of making up a little hamper with some baby panadol, fess, baby vicks, thermometer etc, all the things you need if bubs gets sick, so she doesn't have to do the midnight dash to the chemist. I have a toddler and know I would have appreciated it.

    But then I started thinking that maybe this is a bit pessimistic?? Like I'm saying her baby is going to be sick?? What do you think?

    This is something I would appreciate. All those things are things u dont think of buying til bubs is sick and you need it.

    Do u think she might be offended by it? Like in a "she thinks im gonna have a sick baby" kind of way? Haha, sounds crazy, but us pregnant women are like that!

    I think it's a great idea. Maybe add some teething gel and infacol as well. Amber teething necklace?

    My g/f did something similar, I didn't have a baby shower but she bought me a box of goodies - moisturiser for bubs, baby cotton buds, sudocrem, stuff I hadn't thought about but when I needed it, it was great that they were there and I didn't have to figure it all out LOL.

    Yeah I think it's a good idea what about some breast pads, dummies, and maybe a block of 'emergency chocolate'

    I think mix it up with some products, baby wash, shampoo, face washers, nappy rash cream... It won't be so 'sick baby emergency kit'

    I did this for SIL.

    I made a "baby medicine cabinet" and put baby panadol, teething gel, sudocrem, thermometer, nail clippers, talc, and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember now, along with a bottle of champers and some ear plugs for Mum to lighten the mood*

    She loved it!

    *note: I understand that not everyone would find this amusing, but knowing SIL and her jokey personality it was a pretty safe bet

    The chocolate is a good idea - cute way to make it a little more fun

    You could also do a 'booboo pack' - they are little ice packs in fun shapes can get them from baby stores.

    Maybe a Sophie the giraffe toy? They're great for teething.

    I think it's a great idea though

    I did this for my cousin when she had her first baby and she loved it. You always seem to need things like panadol etc. in the middle of the night when no chemists are open!
