I did not even realize these items existed until I received them as gifts but oh.em.gee are they awesome! When I was putting together my baby registry, it was overwhelming. Like so overwhelming that at least twice I broke down crying in Target and Andy had to comfort me all the way home (seriously.) As a first time mom, I had no idea what I would need or even what kind of baby items existed. I am so grateful to my friends and family who gifted these items to us because they have become some of our favorites! These items are ah-maz-ing. Like 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep amazing. Like not having to share your dessert with anyone amazing. Like... okay, I'll chill. Here's the list.
1. Summer Infant SwaddleMe Swaddlers. My babies loved to be swaddled like I love to eat. So, a lot. These come in cute colors and patterns. They velcro-close in all the right places to get a snug fit. They're easy to use and saved me a lot of time at night since I didn't have to re-swaddle anyone. When my babies started to roll, I cried. I did not want to be done using these swaddles. Pair these swaddles with some pacifiers, a book and some lavender lotion and call it a "Sleepy time kit." Or be more creative than I am, that's fine too.

The only down side I have heard (but not experienced) for this product is that some of the animals do not lay as nicely against baby... particularly the elephant because his trunk gets in the way. Oh and did I mention??? It is nearly impossible to lose them because they are attached to the stuffed animal! Someone needs to give the inventor of these things a medal or the Noble Peace Prize.
So the moral of this story is, if you do not get these items as baby shower gifts - go buy them IMMEDIATELY.
If you have a favorite baby item, do you gift it to new mothers? What's your go-to awesome baby shower gift??
