After recently cleaning out Number 5 and 6’s closet, I have a couple of recommendations regarding 3 gifts NOT to buy new moms.
1. Towels with animal heads attached to them
I have 5 of these towels. I never used them. And they are really annoying to fold and/or stack in your closet.
2. Shoes for any child under the age of 3 months
I have 6 tiny baby shoes with no matches. They are adorable, but they don’t really serve a purpose, and inevitably one falls off and is never found again.
3. Hooded bathrobes with cute little ears on them for children under 2-years-old
This thing sure is cute, but the kid will never wear it.
Here are my top 3 recommendations on what to buy. Not cute, but totally useful.
1. Bibs with snaps
Lots of them. Those velcro bibs eventually get big lint balls stuck in them, don’t stay fastened, and then are easily ripped off. Plus, when you forget you put them in the washing machine, they will attach to something and ruin at least one article of clothing.
2. Stain remover
That yellow mustard baby poop is seriously potent and needs immediate attention. Often.
3. Dry shampoo
All I can say, is LIFESAVER.
