6 Baby Shower Gifts I Never Knew I Needed

Figuring out what to add to your baby registry can feel a bit like flying blind when you’re a first time mama-to-be. The baby gear market is filled to the brim with wonderful things that can make life for parents and babies easier, but there is only so much room in a house and so much money in a budget for purchasing these items, so it’s helpful to focus on the items that truly are “must-haves” before adding in the fun “extras.

There are plenty of great baby shower registry lists out there that will give you ideas for the essentials, but I thought I might add a few extra items that I’ve found to be invaluable and that I never realized I needed before becoming a mama. Hope you’ll find them to be useful as well!

1. Easy swaddles 

Because they are completely fool proof, which will be much appreciated when you are trying to swaddle a grumpy baby at 3:00 A.M.

2. Sleeved bibs

Because babies are messier than you ever thought possible and these have your baby covered quite literally.

3. A nursery light

Because its nice to be able to see during middle of the night feeding sessions with your baby – running into things in the dark isn’t good time for anyone.

4. Pajamas for days

Because cozy pajamas get worn nonstop – at bedtime and for lounging around the house – you’ll want to have plenty on%2
