    I'm so excited! I'm going to be an aunt!! For those that are mothers (or even those that aren't) what nifty baby items can't you live without?! I want to get my brother, his FI, and the baby the best gifts I can so any suggestions will be much appreciated!

          Congratulations!! That's so exciting!! I once saw a website with the top 10 things your baby WILL use (it also had the 10 ten thing that turned out to be a waste of money)... I'll see if I can find the website, but hopefully the new mommies will chime in and know what I'm talking about!

              Congrats! I love spoiling babies! My wallet is probably glad I don't have my own kiddos!

              Things I know that get used:
              Sophie Girraffe - teething toy that is all natural
              Hooter Hider - I don't know if that is the correct name, but it's like a bib for nursing moms
              Swadling Blankets
              Robeez shoes
              Bumbo Seat

              I personally always give a baby bath tub filled with goodies and/or a baby medicine kit. I get an organizer and lable the drawers with medical stuff and medicines. I think both are very practical gifts and saves mom or dad from going to the pharmacy at midnight for some Motrin.

                    I do the same thing. I always get a smaller laundry basket and fill it with stuff you will never have enough of. Baby wash, lotion, wash cloths, ect. Then I put clear plastic around it, and tie it closed with ribbon and normally a teether attached to it.
