We were blessed to receive a lot of baby gifts when our little boy J was born. While I appreciate each and every one, there was one item in particular that was just perfect!
What is it you ask?
Now that might just sound like the oddest gift to get all excited about, but I truly did. Well, let’s be honest here… At first I looked at the gift like it was a three-headed monster because I didn’t know why someone would get me a delicate laundry bag as a baby gift. But thankfully she had attached a little note to it saying, “Use these to wash those baby socks without them getting lost!”
It took me a second, but then I realized just how cool this gift really was. After using it just once, I was hooked! I can wash little man’s socks, hats, mittens, and other small things without them getting lost. Better yet – I can throw some of my items in as well. For example, I also use it to wash my reusable nursing pads. I’ve even thrown my own socks in from time to time, just because the bag wasn’t that full and I wanted to get a full load. (When you’re apartment dwelling and using quarters for laundry, you make every load count!)
The crazy part – I didn’t even know it existed, that I needed it, or just how helpful it would be! Maybe I was a totally clueless, new mom. But – just in case – I wanted to share this here on the blog so others can learn just how awesome this is as well!
If you are a new mom, make sure to put a delicate laundry bag on your baby registry! Or, if you’re buying for a new mom, make sure to make this purchase. Better yet – buy a set of three and you’ll have three baby gifts all ready to give out.
What baby gift is your go to? I’ve got plenty of baby showers coming up in the near future, so I’d love some new ideas! Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
