3. Baby Safe Toys

Simply because all parts of the toys are sewn on, so there are no removable or detachable parts that might fall off and pose as a hazard for your growing (and all-time chewer) baby.

We love these baby safe play sets from Baby GUND.  Not only are they colourful and soft, each play set also contains several activity toys that are both educational and stimulates sensory play for the baby.

4. Cute Baby Onesies

 

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!

Check out some of these cute baby onesies that are sure to please the new Daddy, whether they are a Star Wars fan or a petrolhead!

Baby Shower Cupcakes

There are many ways to celebrate baby showers. Some opt to have a grand celebration, others opt for quieter, more homely affairs. Some opt for dessert tables with large, customised cakes, others prefer a home baked cake and still others prefer cupcakes and lighter refreshments.

Wondering what baby shower cupcakes to serve to your hungry guests? Here you go.

Another fun way to add decor to your cupcakes is through the use of cupcake toppings, which can be purchased easily, or even hand made.

Baby Shower Cupcakes

These adorable cupcakes topped with fondant buttons would be a good option for an experienced baker to bring to the shower. The recipe notes that the buttons take time to make and dry, so plan ahead. Hopefully your efforts will be rewarded with all the “oos” and “ahhs” you’ll get after serving cupcakes with edible, mini buttons.  Get the recipe here.

With so many options to choose from, there’s no need to serve pink or blue cupcakes to be gender-friendly. If you still aren’t sure what type of cupcakes to make, ask the mama-to-be what her favorite type of cake is and go with that. She’s the VIP, after all.

How To Make A Diaper Cake In 5 Easy Steps

How to make a diaper cake in 5 steps

Have you ever wondered how our beautiful Diaper Cakes are made?  Here’s the secret revealed!!

If you have a baby shower or baby full month party to attend to, but don’t know what to get, get a Diaper Cake!

Better still, why not try your hands at making one?  Your recipient is sure to be pleasantly surprised!

Here are 5 simple steps on how to make a 3 Tier Diaper Cake:

Step 1: Prepare The Materials

Diaper Cake Impressive Baby Gift Hamper

Our 2-Tier Diaper Cakes are made of the following practical and useful baby items.  All these materials are available for sale separately too!

  • Disposable Diapers.  We use Huggies Total Protection Medium Size that fits babies from 5-10kg.  It’s recommended to buy a slightly bigger diaper size, simply because firstly, babies these days are getting bigger and bigger.  Secondly, the new parents would probably be so busy with their newborn that they won’t have time to unwrap the presents right at the beginning.  Lastly, if the gift is meant for a baby full month or 100 days celebration party, the baby would have grown quite a bit and might not fit into a Small or Newborn size diaper.
  • Baby Onesie / Rompers.  For our 3-Tier Diaper Cake, we use 2 baby rompers or onesies, as some call it.  We have a wide range of long and short sleeved rompers from well known brands like Osh Kosh BGosh and Carters.  Onesie designs vary as well, from cheeky slogans to cute little appliques.
  • Receiving / Swaddling Blanket.  We use receiving blankets for the bottom layer of our diaper cake.  These blankets measure 76 x 76cm and are made of flannel cotton and are super soft and easy to wash.  Great for swaddling the newborn baby during his or her first few months.  The blankets can also be used to cover the top of the baby stroller to prevent the harsh sunlight from reaching baby’s face.
  • Prewalker Baby Shoes We know babies can’t walk and so technically, they don’t need to wear shoes.  But our prewalker soft sole shoes are too cute to resist!  Put one pair on a baby and you will know what I mean.  The shoes goes right on top of our 3-Tier Diaper Cake.
  • Baby Feeding Bib Bibs are made from cotton material and comes with a velcro at the top for easy wearing and removing.  Helps keep baby’s mealtimes less messy!
  • Baby Socks.  Our range of baby socks are suitable for babies aged 6-12 months.  Made of soft stretchy material, helps keep baby’s tiny feet warm and cosy!
  • Plush Toy. Our soft toys are the usually the cake topper for our mini, 1-Tier and 2-Tier Diaper Cakes.  But for our magnificent 3-Tier Diaper Cakes, they go at the side.  We keep a wide range of soft toys from the well known Disney characters like Mickey and Winnie The Pooh, to the classic ones like care bears, GUND bunnies and the bedtime bears from MotherCare.
  • Ribbons and Pins.  How do we keep all these baby goodies together without them falling apart?  Well, we can’t use glue or tape cause it’ll make the clothes all sticky and hard to wash.. So we experimented and pins and ribbons seems to be the best.  So yes, our Diaper cakes contain some pins.  BUT, to ease any concerns, there is a little sticker label at the side of our cake that tells you exactly how many pins are in your Diaper Cake.  Ribbons are grosgrain or satin and usually matches the overall colour theme of the Diaper Cake.
  • Box Packaging.   What’s a nice handmade gift without proper packaging?  At Diaper Cakes Singapore, we pride ourselves in being the only Diaper Cake company in Singapore to pack our diaper cakes in fully-sealed gift boxes. The gift boxes make your Diaper Cakes much more presentable, easy to carry and acts as a great way to store the Diaper Cake without the contents getting dirtied or damaged.

Step 2: Make The Blanket Layer

Fold the receiving blanket into 3 parts about the width of one diaper.  Secure the ends with pins.

Insert the diapers and fold down the top .  Secure with pins.

Step 1 How to make a diaper cake   How to make a diaper cake 6   IMG_4593

Add a cute baby feeding bib at the back.  Secure with a ribbon.

IMG_4596 How to make a diaper cake 5

Step 3: Make The Romper Layer

Take 6-8 diapers and roll them to make a bundle like the image below.  Secure with a rubber band.

Wear a romper over the diaper bundle, and tuck the bottom of the romper into the core of the diaper bundle.  Add a pair of socks at the back of the romper.  Secure with pins.  You can add ribbons to the bottom of the romper if you like.

Step 4: Stack All The Layers Together

Repeat Step 3 for another romper layer.  Then stack the blanket and romper layers to make a 3-Tier cake.  Pin the baby shoes at the top, and the plush toy at the side.

Step 5: Wrap It In A Nice Gift Box!

Place the diaper cake in a nice gift box with an easy to carry handle for your recipient.  Our Diaper cake gift box comes with a gift message template at the side so you can print your own customized greeting message on it.

You might wish to add on a cute little matching helium balloon to up the cuteness level!

A bouquet of pretty flowers or a bottle of bubbly for the new mommy would be greatly encouraged too!

Baby Shower Myths

Want to throw a baby shower but then again……. You wonder WHY you have to do it, or how baby showers all came about? We give you a complete lowdown on the entire baby shower showdown. Unclear baby shower myths, be gone!

Myth: Baby Showers are for women only.
Fact: It’s 2016!!! Coed baby showers are becoming more common. Many husbands would really enjoy going to a baby shower with their wife. A baby shower is an exciting event with friends and family.  The father to be would love to be part of celebrating the arrival of a new baby, and unless a baby shower is stated girls-only, why be exclusive? If you decide on a couples’ party, just be sure the boys have something (food/beer/guitar hero) to bond over.

Myth: Baby showers are all about giving gifts.
Fact: Nope. Ever heard that it’s the presence and not the presents that count more? Baby showers are not all about gift giving. It’s a great time for sharing experiences by experienced moms with the new mom to be as well as to bond and spend quality time with family and friends. Of course receiving gifts is a sure way to make a new mother smile or feel loved, but it’s not always about the gift boxes wrapped in ribbons. You can’t wrap advice with a ribbon

Myth: Baby shower gifts should be for the newborn age only.
Fact: Why restrict the suitability of your gifts to just a newborn age? Think forward and think a few years down! Most new parents get so many baby gifts for the newborn stage that they never get used and get passed down or donated instead. This is because newborn babies grow so fast!  Get a baby gift a child can grow into or be used at an infant stage or even toddler.

Myth: A baby shower must have a theme.
Fact: Having a baby shower theme is always nice, but it’s not a requirement.  There are many things you can do to make the venue feel special, whether you are hosting a baby shower at home or in a fancy restaurant.  We’ve got some tips for a budget baby shower you might appreciate.

Hamster Who Understands Baby Shower Myths

Because now you know better about baby shower myths and you know they aren’t so crazily hard to deal with!

8 Tips For A Budget Baby Shower

Thinking of throwing a baby shower but don’t want to break the bank? We hope these tips prove helpful as you organise your first (or second, or third!) baby shower. With some creative juices and a pair of hands and flair for DIY art, your baby shower will look like a million bucks.

1. Location

Of course the venue is an important aspect. You don’t want to have a baby shower in an overcrowded restaurant that will drown out otherwise intimate, comfortable conversations, but you don’t want it too drab and squeezy either. The best and most cost-saving option would be to have it at home, where everyone can be most comfortable, but if that is not possible, having it at a friend’s home, or outdoors like the Singapore Botanic Gardens under the cerulean blue sky is an option too. If you plan to hold it outdoors, there could be limitations to decorations and having a back up plan in the case of thundery showers is a must.

Botanic Gardens Budget Baby Shower

Perfect for a small, cosy gathering.

2. Bib garland
This decor idea is pretty, yet functional. Creating a garland out of bibs or onesies is simple, and the new mom will love that the decor becomes part of her baby stash immediately.

Just hang a piece of twine or ribbon across a window or mantle, or above a table. Then, use clothespins to hang onesies or bibs – in any color – across the twine. You can get onesies and bibs for cheap by buying them in bulk

3. Recruit stuffed animals for decor

Having it at home? To add on to the theme of welcoming a baby, furry animal friends make great decorations as well! Bring out the beanie babies and other cute soft toys. A soft stuffed bear can guard the punch, while an adorable giraffe presides over the cheese and crackers platter.

Our Diapercakes can serve as adorable decoration props.

Soft toy, adorable onesie and matching shoes, check!

4. Always check the clearance section, or Daiso.
Don’t rush to Spotlight first or Paper Market. Check clearance aisles, Carousell or Daiso to see if these cheaper alternatives have what you need.

5.Serve food in scrapbook paper cones!

scrapbookcones

Wow, these pretty cones are made from scrapbook paper! Not only is this a creative way to serve food, it saves costs too. If you’ve got extra scrapbook paper lying around,  simply roll it up and tape into place. Pour some nuts or popcorn inside, and you’ve got yourself a kacang puteh bar. To make a box for your cones, find a flat, simple box, turn it over, poke some holes at the base, and voila!

6. Always buy food in bulk

While on the topic of preparing food, consider buying food in bulk. As you’d already know, more for less is always worth it, and buying food in bulk is a great way to ensure you have more than enough food for everyone without breaking the bank. Or you could always organise a potluck party where everyone brings their own favourite dish, and you get a variety as well.

7. Avoid lunch or dinner time.
Set a time of day that doesn’t require an entire meal to be served. Having a snack bar, dessert bar, etc. will cost much less than a full meal. Skip the caterers and set the food out/make it yourself.

8. Invitations

Instead of a paper-and-pen invitation, consider using online invitation portals like Evite, or having a Facebook event page altogether. This way, after the baby shower is over, guests can post their pictures straight to the Facebook event page, without you having to ask your Whatsapp groups for them.

Here you go, some helpful tips to throw a baby shower that won’t leave you with an empty pocket. The happiest part of a celebration is to be surrounded with your closest friends and family, is there any need to spend a thousand dollars to make that happen?
