    Default Do I take anything to a babies funeral???

    A very dear and good friend has just given birth to a 25 weeker (their first child) who sadly passed away not long after birth.

    I have been very fortunate in my life to have only been to a couple of funerals and they have mostly been older people with donations in lieu.

    Do I take any flowers or anything with us?????

    Please help........

    A few people bought a small arrangement of flowers and a couple of beanie kid teddies to my DS funeral/grave site when he was born sleeping.

    For something different depending how well you know them/wanting to spend etc maybe but a star and name it after their precious bub or a keep sake of some sort.

    Feel free to PM me if you'd like some other ideas etc

    Thank you so much for replying TrulyBlessed.

    I really like the idea of the star. How do I go about finding that, is there a website???

    I am so sorry that you have been through such a heartbreaking loss..

    When my son was stillborn people giving flowers and teddies to leave at his grave ment so much to me. I think take something like a wreath and or special teddy. ...

    Heres a website i got the design for the one i had made up.. I got it the exact same except a nicer blue teddy...

    If you have time go look at the cemetery and see what other things people.have there in the baby section...

    I think flowers or a teddy or little keepsake are ideal..

    I bought a family a forget me not figure from the willow tree range as another suggestion, they have a few that are for remembrance and for angels.

    You can go to the international star registry

    http://www.starregistry.com.au/how-to-name-a-star.html

    I buy little keepsakes ie willow figures etc for birthday/Christmas/Easter.

    My eldest son has taken a car and dinosaur out to his site also.

    If they are religious you could always buy some pink or blue rosary beads..

    At our son's funeral we asked for no gifts and donations in lieu but close friends/family brought small things, a few photos and little toys. My dad and step-mum brought a small flower arrangement to his grave with aster (his birth flower). Whatever feels comfortable.
