    • Majority of the women these days want a flat core area and go at arms lengths to obtain these results.

      Not all decisions made to obtain these results is worth it, mainly people have undergone drastic diets and let’s not forget taking weight loss pills. This is ridiculous.

      Thank you so much for this insightful article, people rather change their eating habits that damage their bodies but taking supplements and weight loss pills.

      I believe in following simple routine of non-strenuous exercise, for non-lengthy periods but maintained consistently daily.
      I have tried eating healthy but I can’t, so I rather eat what I want in moderations and exercise daily as a small punishment. 😊

    • Great ideas @lynne!

      Some of the items mentioned here are essential when having a newborn in the house and with gifts like these it will most definitely make things a little easier on the new Mommy.

      1. Bigger clothing. With the last few baby showers I attended, I made sure I am buying clothes for 3-6 months or even bigger. Most people buy newborn clothing but that little peanut outgrows them at such a rapid pace that you’ll have to up size very quickly.

      2. Baby bags – I am convinced that you can’t have too many baby bags. They are essential and you have to replace them from time to time. Especially the bag that goes to daycare or preschool. They get worn out pretty quickly.

      3. A Gift for the expecting Mommy – With my baby shower two of my friends clubbed in together and bought me lovely gifts including a super soft blanket for JD. Not a swaddle or fleece one. One of those real blanket blankies, like the blankets we used. That blanket was so soft and of good quality. We still use it. It really was the best gift and so unexpected. Included in their gift was a Isabella Garcia gift for myself with luxurious hand cream and rose water for the body. I thought this to be so considerate of them. I didn’t expect a gift for myself and was very greatful.

      4. Another great idea I saw on Facebook the other day, was a first aid kit for babies. It contains all the medicines and necessities that one would need for baby ailments. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I visited our Pharmacy for some kind of drop or medicine. Especially those first three month’s. It is good to be prepared. Pharmacies can help you to make up the perfect kit needed for newborns and this item is something that so little people think about. I was thinking to get this for the next baby shower that I will attend.

    • Thank you for the great ideas @Lynne

      I normally gift a nappie bag with a few essentials for all the baby showers that I attend.
      A small breakdown of the essentials that fill up the nappie bag is, Baby Powder, Baby Lotion, Bum Cream, Vaseline, Wet Wipes, Glycerine, Facecloths, Cotton wool buds and not forgetting Baby Oil.
      Three of the people that I had gifted these goodies to have used it as a starter kit to take to hospital, when I heard that I felt so glad that I could off helped in such a way.

      Being a mom, you know what gifts was necessary and which you could have done without, so I gift what I know that I would appreciate the most.

    • A personal and handmade gift will always be a winner and appreciated @giets. I am sure she will love it! I got a beautiful handmade jersey from a close friend’s mom when my daughter was born, it was such a special gift. Plus handmade gifts are usually of such higher quality than anything you can buy in stores these days. My husband’s granny knitted him a jersey when he was a baby and when my daughter was born my mother in law gave it to me for her. An amazing an sentimental gift. I now have it packed away in a memory box for my daughter.

    • Please do make the crochet elephant @giets. They are lovely and like Lynne mentioned handmade gifts are always special and treasured.

      I’ve recently completed my first big crochet project – a blanket for JD.
      I wish I could crochet the animal toys. They are super cute but I’m not good with patterns. :-O

      And I agree with you, shopping for babies are very enjoyable. I love looking through all the adorable little baby grows and baby essentials and I always end up over spending. LOL.
