Best Baby Shower Gifts

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you’re planning to go to a baby shower, make sure the gift you get will be useful. Some of the products they have on the market for babies are just plain ridiculous. Baby baths, for instance. I mean, come on… bathing with a newborn is one of the sweetest, most special times together. And what about car seat covers? For infant car seats, there’s really not much of  chance that anything will get on them, unless the baby is a vomiter (most breastfed babies are not) And then there’s the bottle warmer that plugs into the car’s lighter.  Seriously? Don’t even get me started.  Whenever I find out a friend is pregnant, the first thing I do is subscribe them to Mothering Magazine. Then, at their baby shower, I give another year’s renewal, a homemade blanket and a tub of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. I know it sounds lame to give the same gifts, but each has a reason. the homemade blanket is filled with love. I always use 100% cotton and a small stitch, so little fingers and toes don’t get caught in the holes. Sometimes, I’ll make baby a matching hat or booties, too.  The magazine is special because it’s the only one that stresses natural parenting, with a respect for intuition, a worldview that extends beyond corporate USA and a respect for the rights of women & children everywhere.  But the Butt paste, that’s a different story.

At first, I included it because the name was funny.  I bought a tub for myself and a tub for a friend whose baby shower was later in the day. I didn’t even have a chance to use mine before I got to the shower. When she opened it up, the other moms were raving about it. It wasn’t until I got home that I had a chance to try it on my own daughter.

The first thing I noticed was that it goes on and wipes off easily. I was using a different product before and it was so hard to wipe off of my own hands after each diaper change I always hated having to scrub it off of my hands with harsh soaps, so my baby never quite made it clean because the last thing I wanted to do was expose her skin to those soaps and scrubbing. The Butt Paste just wiped away and it smelled clean and fresh. There’s one product out there (I’m not naming names) but it smells kinda fishy. Who wants a fishy-smelling baby bum?

It’s also pediatrician recommended, i saw it on Oprah and in People Magazine. if you visit their website, they give you a free sample, but if I were you, I’d just head over to target and pick up your own. They come in several sizes. The 3 ounce tube lasted me through two children. Seriously. But for gift-giving, I always get the big tub.
