Themed Baby Shower Gift Ideas: Minbie
One of my friends recently made the happy announcement that she is having her second child. Ill get to go to a baby shower soon! My first inclination was to pick out one of the darling miniature fashions that we all ooh and ahh over. Then I realized she wouldnt really need a new baby layette, but a fresh supply of the daily needs without Im the second baby stains would be appreciated. I decided to put together a feeding themed gift basket for the baby shower. The one I did has bibs, burp cloths, coordinating facecloths and towels for cleanup, and a Minbie baby bottle.
Have you ever heard of a Minbie?
Minbie is a soft, high quality silicone baby bottle teat that is considered to be most like a natural nipple. Because of the shape and silicone material, Minbie nurtures a newborns instinctive breastfeeding technique. I wish they had been available when Sam was a baby. I had trouble breast feeding him because I didnt have enough milk. When I needed to give Sam a bottle I wanted one that was most like a natural nipple so he could easily switch between the breast and the bottle. We got through it all but it was a real concern to me. Id heard frustrated mother stories about babies that were given a bottle and then they would no longer nurse. I think Minbie would minimize that possibility.
The Minbie bottle is available in glass or (BPA free) plastic. There are also three sizes to grow with baby: premature; newborns plus; three months and up. I like the wide neck opening of the bottle, too. That will make it easier to clean.
New bottle. New bibs. New burp cloths. Time for new baby!
