What is a good first gift for parents to give baby?

Other than life...

We're going to the OB for the first time tomorrow, and I really want to get baby something. We were thinking a stuffed animal, but is that too cheesy?

  • I don't think stuffed animals are cheesy. That's one of the first things they can play with and enjoy, go for it! That's what I got my baby boy, back when he was a baby that is.

  • my sister named a star after her daughter...she used the "international star registry"

  • A star is an interesting idea. That'd be something that would have to wait another 14 weeks. I can't wait that long!! I'll see what DH thinks, though.

  • The day we found out the sex of the baby we bought our DD a stuffed animal

  • We're trying to find a good gift, too. I think we've settled on an engraved silver rattle or cup. Something that can be an heirloom.

  • Hopefully, the parents will have set up a college fund. A contribution to that fund is the best gift.
