Top 10 Unconventional Baby Names

I believe we’ve all heard our fair share of unique baby names, be it classmates or working colleagues. But here are some more high profile kids with unconventional baby names, and we’re betting some will make you speechless.

1. Audio Science – Shannyn Sosammon & Dallas Clayton

No, it’s not a college major, its not an exhibition in the museum, it’s this kid’s name. Can you imagine, this kid growing up and enrolling himself into an audio course just for shizz and giggles?

2. Denim – Toni Braxton & Keri Lewis

Oh look, he’s even wearing denim in this picture! It’s an unfortunate name (in my opinion), I mean, who wants to be named after a fabric?

3. Dusty Rose Levine – Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo

Let’s be honest, Adam Levine is a really fit man (People’s magazine’s 2013 sexiest man of the year). When I heard he was engaged, I threw a hissy fit. When I heard Behati was pregnant, I almost cried. When I heard they had named their baby Dusty Rose, I still think he’s hot.. its just Dusty rose, really Adam? That’s SO 2016.

4. Java – Josh Holloway

Well, Java is pretty open to interpretation. Did he mean Java chips? Java script? She is adorable, and I do like a good green tea cream frappuccino with java chips.

5. Maple – Jason Bateman & Amanda Anka 

Maple, like maple syrup? Like Canada?? I will never be able to look at my pancakes drenched in maple syrup the same way, EVER.

6. Racer – Robert Rodriguez

Would be odd if he didn’t pass his driver’s test on the first try, eh?

Although these names aren’t the most unconventional of the bunch, I just felt it wouldn’t be right to make such a list without including children from the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

7, 8, 9. North, Saint, Chicago West – Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

She just had to, didn’t she? Props to her, she made headlines all three times with her unique baby names.

Fun KKW fact: Her third child, Chicago is actually a surrogate baby, aka someone else got to enjoy all the “perks” of pregnancy while Kim continued strutting around in her slim thick figure.

10. Stormi Webster – Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott

Let’s see a show of hands who didn’t know Travis Scott’s real name was actually Jacques Webster. I’m definitely one of those. I was also counting on her baby’s name to be Butterfly Jenner-Scott as the duo had revealed subtle clues leading to the baby’s name being something butterfly related. Kylie Jenner had also been semi-successful in “hiding” her pregnancy; staying out of the public eye once her baby bump surfaced and not responding to rumours. We all knew it was true, she just didn’t confirm it.

Do you know a baby or are you planning on naming your baby something unique? You wont be able to find their name in any store on ornaments or clothing.

Diaper Cakes SG offers personalized onesies where you’re able to print a baby name and design, like this adorable duckling onesie.

You can shop their onesie collection HERE.

5 Honey-licious Winnie the Pooh toys

5 Honey-licious Winnie the Pooh toys

 

Fun Pooh fact: Winnie is actually a girl! Named after a black bear in London Zoo, Winnipeg. Well, that still doesn’t take away the burning questions everyone has; Why doesn’t Winnie the Pooh wear pants?

AnyPooh (pun intended), we have compiled a list of honeylicious Winnie the Pooh soft toys, suitable for Pooh lovers of all ages.

1. Winnie the Pooh stuffed bean bag

A great collector’s item with Pooh’s name on the iconic red t-shirt.

You can get it here from Amazon.

2. Winnie Tsum Tsum plush pillow

Following the recent Tsumtsum craze, here’s a cute Pooh pillow to jazz up your bed of sofa.

5 Baby Shower gifts you didn’t know you needed

5 Baby Shower gifts you didn’t know you needed

Aside from the usual baby shower gifts like baby blankets, diaper bags and breast pumps, here are some gifts outside the norm you didn’t know you needed.

1. Bib that catches fallen food

This bib catches the fallen food that escapes your baby’s mouth. No more picking food off your baby’s clothes, as it will all fall into the pocket on the bib. This is a perfect baby shower gift for as soon as the baby is able to eat solid foods.

2. Unicorn home slippers

They’re adorable, comfy, and they keep your feet warm. New moms tend to experience chills postpartum, especially against your stylish glossy tiles at home. This pair of unicorn slippers help your feet stay warm while help soothe your aching feet from the bloating from pregnancy.

Available from Natures Collection.

3. Formula dispenser 

This is great for being on the go, having formula milk already measured to the right amount makes feeding your baby on the go really easy. Instead of having formula stored in ziplock bags or chunky containers, the formula dispenser will fit in your diaper bag snuggly.

4. Memento Box

 

Having a keepsakes box to store all the little bits of childhood will give your child something to look back on. I remember my mum kept the bit of umbilical cord stump after it dried up, as a measure of good luck. As the years went by, she also put in my first gold anklet after I grew too big to fit it, as well as my first teeth.

Available in blue and pink from Diaper Cakes SG.

5. Animal Pacifier

Adorning a pacifier with a stuffed animal will help appease your baby when they’re upset, as well as keep them occupied.

And there you have it, a handful of baby shower gifts you didn’t know you needed but will change your life.

How to get baby shower gifts that you ACTUALLY want

All soon to be parents face the same dilemma; either request for practical baby shower gifts, or end up with tons of size 3-6 month onesies, diapers and socks. On the other hand, gifters aren’t to be faulted for gifting what they feel is the most sensible. Multiply that by however many people you have invited to your baby shower, and your baby ends up with a new outfit everyday for the next 3 months, followed by a sudden shortage in the following months.

So as a new mother or parent, how should you reply when asked what you want for your baby shower?

Here’s how to ask for baby shower gifts that you actually want and need.

Create an amazon baby registry.

baby registry

A similar concept to the amazon wishlist, everything can be done online and the expecting mum will receive her gift in as soon as 2 days with Amazon prime’s two day shipping. On the registry, you can view and compare prices from different sellers and see whether an item has been purchased, enabling the gifter an easy time. This also helps if you have certain colour or brand preferences.

Include the link in your baby shower invite.

baby shower

Adding a link to your baby registry is a subtle way of saying, “hey, we would really appreciate your help with these for my baby”. Chances are, your friends will be more than willing to help, its a weight off their minds,  instead having to shop for a baby shower gift, they just have to find an item on the registry within their budget.

OR have a friend spread the word about the gifts you prefer

If you’re hesitant about “asking for handouts”, have a close friend spread the word about your preferred gifts. This way, your friend can also advise gifters on what’s practical and what you already have been gifted. Said friend could also help broker a joint gift for more pricey items like strollers, cribs and breast pumps. So the next time someone asks you what you want for your baby shower, say something like: “Oh, i have a friend who has some good ideas, let me introduce you to her.”  Let your best friend be the “evil person”.  Problem solved! = )

Let’s reverse the roles and put you in the shoes of a baby shower gift sender.  How do you ensure that what you give is a practical yet memorable baby gift?  Try Diaper cakes!

All in one Diaper Cake

dog diaper cake baby showerpony diaper cake baby shower

Diaper cakes are the up and coming thing, they include all the basics a new mum will need; diapers, onesies, shoes and a soft toy. A tip we have would be to buy a size up (6-12months) so the baby can grow into it, or if you have an exceptionally chubby baby (haha), it would fit.

Shop diaper cakes from Diaper Cakes SG.

A baby shower shouldn’t be stressful, its about helping a new mom embrace motherhood and helping her through the transition. Having trusty ol’ Amazon or a friend do the “dirty work” for you takes a load off your mind.

The new parents will definitely be overwhelmed with tonnes of baby onesies.  But while basic options are essential for the first few months, you should consider spicing things up with a few baby rompers that are cute, have clever slogans and make dressing the baby fun for the new parents.  Plus, they will look great in photos too!
