Grandparents Baby Shower

As Singaporeans, the cost of living is so high, it is rare that new parent will be able to comfortably afford to quit their job once pregnant. Therefore, in most cases, the responsibility of taking care of your newborn either falls to your parents or in-laws after the 16 week paid maternity period has passed.

If a soon to be mom gets a baby shower, why shouldn’t grandparents get their baby shower too for their precious grandchild?

So what’s a Grandparents Baby Shower?

It’s a relatively new concept. Grandparents welcome the chance to pamper their grand kids. Plus, they’re already well equipped with the skills necessary to take care of your baby. (They might even have some tricks up their sleeve passed down from their parents!) And with this grandparents baby shower, it will also equip them with any items necessary, like diapers and onesies.

Given the steadily decreasing sizes of BTO flats, its highly impossible to make room for the soon to be grandparents. Assuming they have a place of their own, they will need the duplicates for their own baby room/corner so they are able to take care of your baby to the best of their abilities.

So if you’re a grandparent, go ahead and throw a baby shower for your grandchild.  If you are a gift giver who’s been invited to a grandparent baby shower, the baby shower gifts are similar to what you would give the new parents too.

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.
