"What?! A potty chair that sings 15 songs and warms your coolie? No."
"Risers for a crib that make the entire crib vibrate like a little baby earthquake? No."
"A FIFTEEN DOLLAR onesie? NO."
After years of doing this charade (and ending up buying something that I see at their yard sale a year later) I started thinking outside the box. I started bringing meals after baby is born, diaper cakes (cute and helpful), even non-baby gifts like picture frames (because my son is NINE and I am still working on that "scrapbook") are better choices.
Then came Cookies, Then Milk!. Lactation Cookie Mixes are the PERFECT baby shower gift! They are helpful, fun, delicious and can stay in the pantry until mom needs them. Just think! When her milk is low and she freaks out running to the pantry, she will think: "That Uncle Curly, he really DOES love me!" Don't you want that Uncle Curly? Don't you?!
Give mom a gift that can make a difference in her life. Cookies, Then Milk! gift baskets show mom that you not only support breastfeeding but you want to help in any way you can. Heck! Buy 2 bags and save one to bake fresh and bring to her a couple weeks post-partum. Mom+Cookies+Breastmilk = Happy!
