A new mom needs certain products to have a fully prepared nursery. When a new baby comes home, the most immediate needs are diapers and wipes, though some parents may want unscented wipes or even cloth with water for a newborn’s sensitive skin. Later on, products like Desitin for diaper rash and Infant Tylenol come in handy. Note: Baby wash is not an immediate necessity as pediatrician’s recommend unscented Dove for newborns. A wishing well at the shower filled with baby products from the guests is an easy way to meet the needs of the new mom. We thought it would be fun to have each guest write their name on the product they donated so the parents could think of them when the product came in handy….”Aaaw, a rectal thermometer from Aunt Barbara.” What could be sweeter?
Here is the request from a reader that was chosen as this week’s featured poem:
Request for the baby products poem. I’m hoping this is the place you told me to send request for poem from you email dated 12/12/11.
Hi Dina, Here is a poem I wrote that can be used in the invitation:
Baby Product Poem
Please join us in welcoming the new little one
With good friends and food it’ll be lots of fun
If all brought a baby product it would be really swell
We’ll try to fill up the whole wishing well
Shampoo for her hair or Desitin is first rate
Lotions and soap would also be great
You can sign the item with a permanent pen
Each time it’s used, she’ll think of you again
They’ll be so excited, if this advice you do heed
When their little girl arrives, they’ll have all that they need
How great it will be to have their odds and ends
Contributed with love by all of their friends
Good times and laughter is what we will share
Mary will be thrilled to see you all there

Should the bride or mother-to-be be able to opt out of unwrapping gifts at the shower?
|Yes, it is her day and she should get everything she wants.|
