Best gifts to ask for at your baby shower

Baby showers are all about celebrating “baby” with great food, friends, and family, but the really fun part is receiving all of those baby gifts! We sat down with some Ovia moms and put together a list of the best shower gifts to register for at Babies”R”Us.

  1. Baby Monitor
    A time-tested staple, a baby monitor acts as your ears (and eyes) as baby sleeps, so you can too. Monitors come in all different styles. The base unit (usually placed in the nursery) transmits audio, video, movement and/or WiFi signals to your portable receiver, tablet or smart phone for effortless monitoring.

  2. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Summer Infant Handheld Baby Wave Digital Audio Monitor

    Angelcare AC1200 SmartPhone Video, Movement and Sound Monitor

  3. Convertible crib and essentials
    Convertible cribs are not only stylish, but can also save you a ton of money in the long run, as you don’t have to keep upgrading with new furniture as your child gets bigger. A convertible crib is an investment in the future, as it will grow with your child, converting into a day and/or toddler bed and full-size bed as needed.

  4. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Babies“R”Us Fitted Waterproof Crib Mattress Cover

    Sealy Precious Rest Crib/Toddler Mattress

    Babies“R”Us Knit Crib Sheet

  5. Changing Station
    While some parents swear by the convenience of a changing table, others turn to contoured changing pads with curved edges for use on the dresser, floor or bed. No matter which works best for you, a clean, safe and comfortable place to change baby will make the process easier.

  6. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Urban Changing Table

    Babies“R”Us Contoured Changing Pad

  7. Car Seat
    It’s no wonder hospitals insist on car seats for a newborn – they are they safest way to transport a baby, after all! And with different car seats for every stage of baby’s life, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from, like an infant car seat for those tiny travelers, a convertible car seat that’s perfect for a growing baby, or an all-in-one car seat that adapts from baby to an older child.

    Many parents also register for an additional car seat, or car seat base, if baby might be traveling in more than one vehicle.

    Infant Car Seat: Chicco KeyFit

    Convertible car seat: Graco 4Ever All-in-one Convertible Car Seat

    All-In-One Car Seat: Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum

  9. Portable play yard
    A play yard is perfect for keeping baby safe and entertained, and is easy to move from room-to-room, or to bring anywhere else that you and baby venture off to. Many parents find portable play yards to be among the most valuable purchases they make (or baby shower gifts they receive!).

  10. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Evenflo Portable BabySuite 300 Play Yard

    Graco Pack ‘n Play Sheets

  11. Breastfeeding essentials
    Breast pumps can be incredibly helpful in your feeding routine, allowing you to pump and store milk for when you are not available, while also helping to increase milk flow. There are many different types of breast pumps, from top-grade double-electric to single-electric, to manual. Other popular breastfeeding products include milk storage bags, and nursing creams.

  12. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump

    Ameda Manual Breast Pump

    Evenflo Advanced Milk Storage Bags

    Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Nursing Butter

  13. Glider & Ottoman
    The best seat in the house!. As the resident soothers (for both baby and you), this hard working duo will be appreciated time and again, especially during those middle-of-the-night feedings.

  14. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Storkcraft Cambridge Glider and Nursing Stool Ottoman

  15. Diaper bag
    You don’t want to leave your home without one. A diaper bag holds everything baby needs…so you can hold it together. Packing the perfect diaper bag is an art, but one you’ll master pretty fast. Pack baby’s favorite toys and pacifiers, changing pad, wipes, diapers, extra clothes, bottles and diaper creams – whatever you might need!

  16. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Skip Hop Forma Pack and Go Diaper Tote

  17. Stroller
    No matter where you go, make sure you have the gear to go out and about with your brand new explorer. There are strollers for every lifestyle. Start by considering where you live and what a typical day with your cutie will be like – then take a look at the different strollers and pick your registry favorites. Just remember that not all strollers are appropriate for newborns, so you should read about each carefully.

  18. Ovia Moms Recommend:

    Travel system- Graco FastAction Fold Click Connect

Oh the places you’ll go, and the things you’ll need to get you there. Your baby shower will help with getting everything to keep your baby happy, and registering with Babies“R”Us is the easiest way to let everybody know exactly what you and baby need.
