    Default Baby shower gift ideas

    Hello, I'm about to send out my baby shower invitations. I haven't registered anywhere as I think that comes across as a bit greedy, however I've already had people asking me what I'd like, as they know I have had alot of stuff given to me already by my sister who has 2 kids. I plan to breastfeed (if all goes to plan) and use MCNs part-time (I already have about 16 MCN's and about 24 inserts, but I'd like to get some more). Some of the stuff I already have includes: pram, cot, dressing table / change table, car seats, microwave bottle steriliser, breast pump, bottles, bottle bag, heaps of clothes / hats / socks etc in all sizes, wraps, blankets, sheets, bassinette, walker, bouncer...So I can start to put together a bit of a list of things I want / need, what are the things you found most useful for your baby? And maybe the things that you thought would be really great but turned out to be not so great?

    Sounds like you have everything!

    Toys? Books? They aren't must haves but will come in handy in a few months time.
