New Mum Must Haves

Squeakaholic March 8, 2009 0

My friend had a baby shower recently and having to shop for a gift is always a bit of hit and miss. You don’t know what the mother-to-be needs and you don’t know what else everyone is getting. While a lot of people are setting up baby registers to limit the double gifts here is a list of things that new mums need.

If you know other people attending the baby shower then you can chip in and get an assortment of gifts. I like to go with picking some things from the ‘essentials’ below and then something fun like toys or nursery decorations.
