You can spend as much or as little as you want. Set a budget before you begin that's an easy way to narrow down stroller choices. Are you going to splurge on something deluxe in the $300 range? Go for one of the popular styles between $100 and $200? Or seek a real bargain? There are also strollers upwards of $600, but we assume those are for royalty, celebrities, and the wealthy people who imitate them.
Believe it or not, other young people and their parents are observing and always ask "where'd you get that? We have read and heard that positive compliments make everyone feel special. Imagine how important this makes your little one feel. The messages on the T-shirts are positive. One T-shirt that's a favorite says, "Future Genius", another which is personalized has your favorite University on the front. One even has colorful Math signs like plus, minus signs, etc. Who could resist this?
Well-Planned Diapers and Wipes. Registering for diapers is a smart thing to do, and we have lots of ideas for getting diapers at your baby shower. Will you use cloth or disposable diapers (or both)? If you get disposable diapers, we recommend gift cards or diaper delivery subscriptions with places like Amazon or the Honest Company. Otherwise, a couple boxes of newborn, 4-6 boxes of Size 1, and a couple boxes of Size 2 will get you off to a good start. If you’re considering cloth diapers, here’s our guide to the different kinds. They’re less of a pain to wash than you might think, or you can hire a service to wash for you. A newborn poops about ten times a day (older babies less often) so buy a quantity that supports how often you want to do laundry.
Stroller Accessories - Depending on the weather in your area, a stroller rain cover might be an essential. Also, some parents love cup and phone holders that may or may not come with your stroller. Sun Shade for Car Windows - Babies can be really fussy in car seats, but they’re less fussy when they’re not overheated. Wipe Warmers - There’s a lot of controversy about whether this product is useless or amazing. Some babies yell in protest when you touch their butt with a cold wipe, other babies don’t care. Wipe Holder - This one is more for the parent’s convenience than baby’s preference. It’s a convenient way to store wipes so they’re easy to grab, but won’t dry out. Photo Props - Having photo props (like memory cards) can make baby photos so much more satisfying and fun.
