If you have a baby girl and want her wardrobe to really sparkle, check out this I Woke Up Like This onesie we spotted over at Haute Bellies Shop. It’s so precious! And that sparkly gold hanger… I need one of those.
One of our favorite gift ideas for new moms is nursery art, but not just any type of art: we’re talking about personalized artwork by a pro designer you can customize yourself. Emma here and today we’re talking about nursery art for new moms spotted over at Minted. While Minted is typically a go-to for invitations or thank you cards for baby showers (and life’s other milestones), they also offer tons of artwork on their site. You can even order it professionally framed, which is great for busy moms like me. Minted works with pro designers to offer a huge array of art for your home– especially the nursery. And, we love all of the creative art pieces we’re seeing! These make great gifts for your favorite mommy-to-be, or yourself, while you prepare for baby’s arrival (which can sometimes feel like an eternity, I know). Check out the nursery art we handpicked below.
Are you planning to take newborn photos? If so, you might want to get a diaper cover, preferably one that is newborn sized. And while a diaper cover isn’t a mandatory registry item (or anything you will wake up at 3am needing), it can be a really cute photo prop for those first snapshots.
What is a diaper cover for?
There are two reasons to use a diaper cover.
To Hide or Conceal a Diaper’s Print.
It’s pretty straightforward, I know… but a diaper cover is designed to hide the print of the diaper underneath. This is especially helpful if your diapers have prints that are slightly obnoxious, i.e. Elmo or Big Bird, big polka dots, stripes, etc. By the way, in case you’re wondering, Up&Up — the brand made by Target — is the diaper brand we’ve selected in our household. And to be honest, their light blue and green polka dot pattern are less loud than others I have seen. I know it really doesn’t matter, but when the diaper is super absorbent, fits great, AND the pattern isn’t awful, I say that’s a win.
To Be Ridiculously Adorable.
It is. Few things rival a tiny newborn baby with a ruffle diaper cover on his or her bottom. Just sleep, sleep, sleeping away… ah, newborn photos are the greatest. And ruffle diaper covers are even cuter because, ruffles.
