baby gift ideas

Im involved in a program that sets up students (me) with women who dont have a lot of family support. Ive been following a patient through the last months of her pregnancy. she's 37 weeks and i still dont know what to give her for a gift. She's having a boy. She comes from a low-income background, and i want to get her something practical for the baby, and something for herself, too. I'd love any idea of what to get her. Thanks!

I also think diapers/wipes are a good idea since those a pretty high recurring cost. A lot of people get clothes donated to them or they can be found at second hand stores for reasonable prices, but not usually diapers/wipes.

I agree about Anne's stuff being adorable, and the diapers/wipes.
You go through so many diapers and wipes, but most people don't think to give them as gifts.

Aww I can't see Anne's stuff cuz I don't have Facebook

I'd get her something like a bouncy chair. They're not too expensive, and it might come in handy if she can't afford a more expensive swing. If she drinks coffee/tea, maybe you can get the mom a cute coffee set.

Amber, I'd probably get her size 1 and/or 2 diapers, not the newborn ones, since she will get some of those from the hospital, and she may have a bigger baby that doesn't fit into them for long. My youngest was only in newborns for a few weeks, but I bought 2 cases since my oldest grew so slowly (he wore them for a couple of months), and I ended up giving the last bag to a friend b/c I couldn't squeeze him into them

do you know if she was given a baby showerand/or is registered somewhere?

I agree that a bouncy chair is a great idea. They are on the lower end of the price scale as far as "big" baby items; and they are a LIFE SAVER for a new Mom. Its a safe palce to put baby down while they are awake so that Mom can got to the bathroom, make a meal, take a shower, etc....not to mention that it puts a lot of babies to sleep

Depending on how low her income is, diapers may be a part of her government support like formula is. If not, a case of size 1 diapers and a case of wipes would be a stellar idea

Its great that you a part of such a program AND that you are putting so much thought into what she would really need

I would vote for the bouncy chair too! It's practical and maybe something she wouldn't buy herself.

For mom -- maybe a gift card to a fave restaurant? It might be nice for her to pick up or order in instead of cook!

I'm going to be starting a blog so all of you who don't have FB can view it! Probably under the same name. I'll update you when it's ready!
