Baby Shower Gifts for the Little One's Mealtime

Aug 5, 2008
One category of baby shower gifts that many people overlook is mealtime accessories. Some of these presents are great for immediate use, while others can be saved for use later on. There are several choices you can make.

One of the first things baby will need is a good set of bottles. Even if the mother breastfeeds, she will probably use bottles for when she is separated from her child. This is one of those baby shower gifts that are not as much fun to choose. However, if the parents need them, you might consider buying bottles.

Burpie pads are very helpful for babies who are bottle-fed. They need to be burped and Mom and Dad want to save their clothing from messes. Burpie pads come in various colors, patterns, and styles. Sometimes, they come in a set with bibs.

From the time a baby is born until that baby starts to eat without help, bibs are always helpful. You can have more enjoyment choosing bibs for baby shower gifts because you can pick from bibs of different colors and patterns. Pink for girls and blue for boys is far too simple. Bibs these days come in all the colors of the rainbow, with different patterns and made of different fabrics.

When babies get a little older, they can get quite attached to their drinking cups. That is why they are good to get for baby shower gifts. The parents will not mind that the baby cannot use them right away. They usually look ahead to the days that the baby will get bigger and do more things. They will be glad to put the cups back for later.

Older babies also like their own special plates and bowls. These are options for baby shower gifts that many parents can really use. The tiny bowls can be used fairly soon, as parents begin to feed the infant baby food. Whether they make their own baby foods or just want to take a little out of a baby food jar, having a bowl helps. Plates are especially good when the child begins to eat finger foods.

If you buy baby silverware for baby shower gifts, you have two different choices. You can buy functional silverware that the child can use when he or she is old enough to be fed with a spoon or fork. The other option is to buy commemorative silverware that has the baby's birth date or year on it. Either one will be appreciated.

When buying presents, there is no reason to disregard the baby's needs when it comes to mealtimes. If you are getting baby shower gifts, think about mealtime accessories you can purchase for the baby. Some of them will be useful right away. Others will become a cherished part of a baby's childhood.
