    Default Baby shower help

    My best friend is pregnant with her first and is due in November.

    Her baby shower is in less than two weeks and I have decided to put a "bath time essentails" gift pack together for her.

    So far I have:

    * a bath thermometre
    * 2 tubs of papaw oitment
    * a 3 pack of goat milk soap (bars)
    * a hair brush set
    * 2 sets of baby bath towels and face washers

    What else would YOU ad? A nice massage oil perhaps?? It just doesn't seem complete or extaordinary to me...

    Great idea for a gift! What about baby nail scissors? Or a baby massage oil?

    I made a nappy cake for my friends baby shower last week and it was so impressive. and it was extremely easy to do! I just bought a bag of huggies nappies and some bottles and you can just use the stuff that you've already bought and maybe some onesies or bibs or really anything you want. I also bought a pack of muslin cloths from trade secrets to cover the outside (like icing) and some fancy ribbon the tutorial I used is below

    We were given a plastic bath seat at our baby shower which is great. You can also get cloth/mesh ones which might be more comfy for bub? I think they're fairly cheap.

    Maybe cute PJs for after bath - Bonds do some with 'I Love Sleep' on them (if only!).

    A really nice bubble bath/bath bomb for mum might also be a nice addition.
