A Baby Sprinkle Gift Guide

A Baby Sprinkle Gift Guide

When you are pregnant with your first baby, you have a baby shower to celebrate!  Fast forward to baby number 2 and the baby shower becomes a baby sprinkle.  You likely have all the big ticket items (such as a crib) from the first baby, but you find that people still want to celebrate your impending arrival.  We recently held a baby sprinkle for my sister's second baby (a girl!).  I realized that from a gift giver's point of view, picking out a great gift for a baby sprinkle can be intimidating - who knew?  

To help my fellow gift giver's out there, I've come together with some of my favorite shops to create this Baby Sprinkle Gift Guide! 

 

DELICIOUS TREATS

Hello Sweet Pies 

    

These pie pops are ahhhhhmazing!  They make for the perfect mama-to-be treat, and double as unique and delicious favors for guests.  They arrive straight to your door and can be refrigerated for 5 days (or frozen for up to 3 months).  The lattice design is so detailed and beautiful, you almost don't even want to eat them!  Flavors available include blueberry, apple, strawberry, blackberry, sweet cherry, pear and honey, & peach.  They also offer 3 different designs:  classic (as shown above), heart & Mickey Mouse shaped pie pops!

NECESSITIES 

Bambo Nature USA Diapers, Wipes & Skincare

This entire line of Bambo products is simply amazing.  I've been using them on my little guy for over a year now and will never go back to main stream brands.  Bambo Nature diapers are not only eco-friendly, but also free of harmful chemicals and all known allergens while their wipes are free of perfumes, parabens and dyes.  They just released their new natural and organic skincare line and leave you reassured that your little one's skin is well taken care of.

Oogiebear

This new product is amazing.  Probably one of the grossest things any new parent will ever love!  This is the first booger removal tool that safely and gently removes both sticky and dried boogers fro a child's nostrils.  It was developed with comfort in mind, offering two unique ends to remove boogers effectively to help children breathe easier and soothe when in discomfort.

Colgate Kids Contour Changing Pad

 

Colgate's contour changing pad turns any flat surface into a baby changing station, which is a great option for those who have small rooms and simply have no room available for a crib, dresser and changing table.  The changing pad's white, quilted cover cleans easily with a damp cloth and mild soap (because we all know that accidents are bound to happen).  It comes equipped with a  safety strap, and screws to attach the changing pad and is made right here in the USA!

Angelcare Bath Support

This Angelcare Bath Support takes the worry out of bath time. It was designed for comfort with its soft mesh ergonomic design and is mildew-resistant and hygienic. The Angelcare Bath Support is recommended for babies up to 6 months of age.  I especially love that it comes with a hook to make storage easy because we all know what a pain it is to have baby things laying about!

MAM Feed and Sooth Set

Saving bottles and pacifiers from your first child is not always the best idea so adding new bottles and pacifiers to your baby sprinkle list is a must.  This Mam self and soothe set is perfect for both breastfeeding and formula babies.  The anti-colic bottle comes with a leak proof cap, a soft silicone nipple and self-sterilizes in 3 easy steps!  Both the bottles and the pacifiers are BPA free.   

B Box Baby Diaper Caddy

This light and portable change station ensures you have everything you need for diaper changing wherever you are around the home. Great space saver for apartment living and ideal for two-story homes (we use this downstairs).  It even works well for travel in the car - no need to dig through a full diaper bag! 

Cloud B Sleep Sheep

Experienced parents know that having a sound machine playing white noise is a must - especially when there is an older (louder) sibling in the house.  Cloud b has you covered with their adorable sound soothers that are equipped with 8 soothing sounds and melodies.  I actually have 1 of these for each child - they love them!

NURSING ESSENTIALS FOR A NURSING BASKET

Bamboobies Products  

Experienced nursing moms from all around the world can tell you that there are three absolute necessities when it comes to nursing.  Nipple balm, nursing pads and a great nursing bra.  Bamboobies has all of these items and come highly recommended from almost every nursing mom I know.  Their nursing pads are incredibly soft and leak resistant to avoid those embarrassing new nursing mom moments and their Nipple Balm is 100% organic, so you can rest easy knowing that you are able to protect and help heal sore nipples without any toxic ingredients being exposed to your little one.  Nursing bras can be incredibly awkward, uncomfortable and just very unappealing in general.  With Bamboobies Nursing Brahhh, you get the support you need in a breathable, softer and eco-friendly than cotton or nylon nursing bra.  ***You can shop Bamboobies using promo code BAMBOOBIES20OFF to save 20% off your purchase thru 7/19/17***

Covered Goods

This is an accessory that every parent needs - nursing or not.  If you haven't yet heard of this multi-use cover, be prepared to be blown away.  This four in one nursing cover is perfect to conceal nursing your little one but can also be used as a car seat cover, shopping cart cover and even a stylish infinity scarf for mom! 

Noxx Swaddle Set

Because all baby's love a good swaddle!  Although my little guy no longer swaddles, he cannot sleep without one of his Noxx "blankies".  These swaddles are incredibly large, light and breathable - perfect for any baby or toddler to help keep them feeling safe, yet comfortable.  Bonus points because it comes with an adorable matching headband or beanie for baby.  ***You can shop Noxx by using promo code BABYSHOWER at checkout to save 15% off thru 7/19***

Mom Life Must Haves Water Bottle & Coffee Tumbler

Nursing moms must stay hydrated.  In fact, its recommended that a nursing mom drink an 8oz glass of water each time she sits to nurse.  Water is essential to help keep a nursing moms milk supply up, so why not spoil mom a little with a super cute water bottle?  Its made from stainless steel and is durable enough to throw into the diaper bag while you are on the go and holds a generous 24oz at a time!  I've also included their Coffee Tumbler because, well, babies wake up... a lot.  While I know its not recommended to drink more than 2 cups a day while nursing, this was incredibly useful for myself (both in my early days of nursing, and even now as we are weaning).  ***You can shop Mom Life Must Haves using promo code NICOLEBANUELOS to save 15% off your purchase!***

KEEPSAKES

 

Polka Dot Print Shop Baby Book

My first born is almost 17 years old.  Every time I pull out his baby book, I laugh.  It was so large and frankly, kind of an eyesore.  When I came across this adorable mermaid themed baby book from The Polka Dot Print Shop, I just knew my sister had to have it!  These books were made by a mama of 4 who understood how daunting baby books could be so she simplified the process to make documenting memories quick, simple and to the point!

Little Nugget Co Photo App

                                        

Finally!  An app that helps you capture sweet moments from pregnancy to toddlerhood and personalize them with adorable text and artwork that you can share privately with friends and family of your choosing or publicly via social media!  ***You can shop Little Nugget Co using promo code NB20 to save 20% off your purchase from their print shop***

Stitches by Natalie Keepsake Toy

                                            

Keepsakes are one of my favorite gifts to give because they are usually something that is kept forever.  Stitches by Natalie creates the cutest and most unique keepsakes using your baby's first swaddle blanket and turning it into a birth elephant and embroiders it with your baby's name and stats. 

Sassy Baby Essentials Swaddle Set 

                                           

These are quite literally picture perfect.  These swaddles and newborn beanies (or headbands) can be personalized in any color and with any name you choose.  Don't have a name picked out yet?  Not a problem!  The name can be easily replaced with "Big Sister, Little Brother" or even "baby girl, baby boy".  ***You can shop Sassy Baby Essentials using promo code SHIPFREE2017 for free shipping!***

APPAREL

 

Little Faces Apparel gender onesie

This onesie is not only adorable, but make for a fun way to announce your little ones gender - during pregnancy or even after birth!  Little Faces Apparel also carries sets of shirts that say "Big Sister, Little Sister" and "Big Brother, Little Brother" that are nice because you are able to include the older sibling in the gift giving!  ***You can shop Little Faces Apparel using promo code BABYSHOWER for 15% off your purchase!***

Sun Baked Baby Boutique Mommy & Me Set 

Sun Baked Baby Boutique has so many awesome designs, but my absolute favorite thing about them is that they make "mommy and me" sets so that you can twin with your little mini me!  How adorable is this Mermaid set pictured above?  

Taylin Threads Handmade Clothing

Shopping small has really become a way of life for me over the last several years.  Sure, you can pick up cute clothes anywhere, but there is just something so special about supporting a hand made shop from a hard working mama and Taylin Threads is just that!  Taylin Threads offers tops and bottoms in the cutest designs that you won't find at your local Target!  Just check out this mermaid piece she made for my niece-to-be!  

Dapper Jacks Rompers

If you have been keeping up with kids fashion lately, you know that rompers are all the rage for both boys and girls.  Dapper Jacks makes the most gorgeous rompers and my very favorite from their line for girls is this floral romper.  Its not only gorgeous, its super soft and very durable.  I can not wait to see this beauty on my niece!  If you are shopping for a boy, you must head on over to check out their boys line as well.  Everything is completely adorable!  ***You can shop Dapper Jacks using promo code BABYSHOWER for 15% off your purchase!***

pediped Originals Baby Shoes

pediped originals have the cutest shoes for babies!  They carry everything from casual to dressy styles and are made specifically with your baby's healthy foot development in mind.  Bonus points because these cute baby shoes are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development! 

 DECOR/TOYS

 

A Child's Nook Mini Nook Teepee

These Mini Nooks are the perfect decor for a small space, with three sides and standing about 12" tall and about 5 inches at the base.  They come in 6 different designs and are the cutest little teepees I've ever seen.  These would make an adorable addition to any baby's nursery! 

Legacy Learning Academy Wooden Building Blocks

These customized blocks make for adorable room decor and fun toys for kids to play with as they age.  They come in a set of six all-natural wooden blocks that are hand painted on one side in an adorable color palette.

I love these ideas, with our latest baby we decided it was better not to throw a babyshower since it was another boy. This would have been fun.

We love the Angelcare bath support, it made bathing our delicate, fragile boy much easier and safer. Next shower I attend I’ll have to add the Oogiebear to the basket and for myself.
Lastly, I feel it is my duty to spread the word about Noxx and their amazing beanies (for babes and adults). A swaddle set is perfect and unique and throw in a toddler blanket for the older siblings as well!

Great ideas!! Especially NOXX products. You can never have enough beanies, swaddles, or blankets.
I personally find any and all breastfeeding products super helpful to have at a Sprinkle and also Little Remedies has a “Survival Kit”Wl which includes gas drops, acetaminophen, saline spray and more. It’s everything you could need for tummy troubles and fevers. Great Sprinkle gift as well.

Awesome ideas! I needed this…my sister-n-law is having triplets so I’m sure she will be having a sprinkle…or maybe a tidal wave depending on what is needed for three babies at once. Oye. I love the keepsake toy idea and all the nursing essentials. Have to keep that in mind for her and her littles to arrive around Thanksgiving. I’ll also be giving her a stack of free-babysitting coupons:) haha.

These are all great ideas! I will always give Noxx beanies and swaddles from now on. I discovered Noxx when my son was already a year old. Would have loved to have known about the beanies and swaddles when my son was a newborn.

Sizing & Fabric Types

We personally touch every fabric before we buy it to make sure that our products will be not only stylish, but ultra comfortable. Because we use a wide variety of knit fabrics, each beanie may fit and feel slightly different. We are a family-run small business and our products are proudly handcrafted here in Arizona! 

BEANIE SIZING

The wording has changed, but the sizes have not! If you are used to our old system or need help selecting a size, please use the chart below. Our beanies are very stretchy, therefore most fit even longer than the age groups listed. If you want the hat to fit right away, we recommend ordering by current age or measuring. ***For newborn photos or coming home outfits please order the NEWBORN size. These are very stretchy, so even if your baby has a big head it will be okay. :) The infant size will not fit until your baby is at least a couple months old.***

Newborn - Previously listed as 0-3mo (Head sizes 13"-16.5")

Infant - Previously listed as 3-9mo (Head sizes 15"-18.5")

Toddler - Previously listed as 6mo-3yr (Head sizes 17"-21")

Youth - Previously listed as 3yrs-Teen (Head sizes 19"+)

Adult - Previously listed as Adult M/L (Head sizes 21"+)

 PS - All of our beanies can be worn 2 ways! You can wear them folded at the bottom for a "cuffed" look, or unfolded for a "slouchy" fit. The photos on our site show a combination of both styles.

FABRIC TYPES

>> Signature Style - Our original design! These are made from only 1 layer of fabric (most beanies you find on the market are double-layered), this makes them super lightweight and breathable. They are super comfortable (you'll hardly know they are there) and even the most picky babies don't seem to mind them! These are great for year round wear, but are most popular for spring, summer and fall. 

>> Jersey Knit – These beanies are going to be very thin, lightweight and stretchy. This fabric is similar to what most “leggings” are made from. They are great for year round wear and best for when you just need a little something over your ears, without overheating. They’re also very popular for those who like to wear a beanie while exercising. They run true to size or slightly bigger because they are so stretchy.

>> Sweater Knit – These beanies are going to be a little thicker than the jersey knit, but still light-mid weight and great for year round wear. These are most popular for fall and spring weather, as well as winter in places that don't get too cold (Arizona, California, Texas, etc). They are stretchy, comfy and fit true to size.

>> Ribbed Knit - This fabric is the same as our sweater knit, except with a ribbed look/texture. 

>> Cozy Sweater Knit – This fabric is the same as our sweater knit, except it's a little thicker and has a “fuzzy” feel to the outside for added warmth. These beanies are soft and stretchy, but due to the thickness of the fabric, they are not as “floppy” as the other options and run true to size or slightly smaller. These are the "warmest" beanies we offer and are popular for the fall and winter months.

*All fabrics are made from any combination of polyester/cotton/rayon/spandex/wool. If you need more information on a specific beanie for allergy reasons just let us know!
