  • Im interested in this question because Im having a baby shower soon and a little boy as well. SRY I cant answer your question but I might find it very helpful to me!

  • I wish I got a mini swing. One of those ones that can travel with you where ever you go. I know that will not fit in a basket!
    But yes you can get diaper ointment, teeth cleaning for babies, changing pads to change babies in public, Tylenol, teething tablets (they work great when teething!), if nursing? nursing pads, gel to help with cracking, hand sanitizer. I can not think of any thing else right now but will come back and let you know if I do! Good luck with that shower!

  • Less clothes! Lol, but you already know that...

    Honestly I would have wanted more older babies toys, diapers etc. Newborn stuff is not used for long!

    I also would have wanted quarters for laundry!

  • You could do a nursing gown, if she is nursing, and nursing necessities, and a gift card for a pizza delivery..I am sure she will not want to fix dinner one night!
