Dylan is our second baby and when I was pregnant with him my mom debated if it was appropriate for him to have his own baby shower. I know everyone has their own opinions on this but in the end the decision was made to have a "diaper shower" where the gifts (if given) were diapers and consumables. Personally I think every baby and every mom deserves a party be it a full blown shower or even just a afternoon get together. Pregnancy can be awfully taxing and especially in those last two months mom's are feeling a little defeated at times... even more so if your a mom like me who already has a very active two year old at home. I know my shower really helped make me feel special when I really felt more like a slow moving hippo with arthritis. heh.
One of my favorite gifts from my shower were all the great Johnson and Johnson products we received. Actually thanks to Mom Central we got a big package of Johnson and Johnson baby products including some of our favorites like the one necessity every mom needs.. Johnson and Johnson's baby lotion and Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo. Both of which are not only great for baby but are fabulous for mom as let me tell you if you spend four days in the hospital like I just did, after my c-section, your skin gets pretty dry. I was rubbing both Dylan and myself down several times a day as both of us started to look like dried up alligators. Something is just so comforting about that smell as well. The last two nights I didn't sleep at all thanks to all the nurses in and out of my room, but I did get some quality snuggle time with my favorite little peanut who smelled so wonderful I barely wanted to give him back to the nursery staff when it was time for him to see his doctors in the morning.
So regardless if your looking to buy for your own baby or if your looking for the perfect shower gift. Johnson and Johnson products are a perfect choice. Actually any mom would really enjoy getting a little gift basket full of baby bath and body products. Johnson and Johnson makes some of the most trusted brands including Desitin which has to be one of the most popular diaper rash creams I've heard of (I actually got three tubes for my real shower). Consider even making a little bath time caddy which is perfect for that first sponge bath. I made one tonight for Dylan and it has a bottle of Bedtime Bath, Head to Toe Body Wash, Baby Lotion, a pacifier, several clean diapers, a small package of wipes, several clean wash cloths, a brush, and my aunt's favorite hair cream.
