ok, another baby shower question!
I have a coworker having her first baby. She is not very mainstream in most of her ideals, so I am assuming she will be the same way with her baby. I KNOW she is seeing a midwife and doing a homebirth, coworkers have said she is planning on bfing, I do not know about cd..
But I figure, if she is alternative with most things, cds aren't too scary a topic to broach, right? The shower is a surprise or I'd ask her.
I went shopping today with dp, he set me a budget of $50 tops for gifts (he
babies, can you tell?) I was thinking more the $35 range since I don't know her well..
Anyway, I stopped by Sugar and Spice and picked up (all new- they ARE gifts)
one size fuzzibunz with insert in yellow (closest gender neutral I could find)
one tin of non-petroleum Baby Bottom Better (which we LOVED and I used to order from Canada for)
a set of cute bamboo baby eating utensils age 6months+ (a spoon and fork that look like wood! So cute!)
What do you think? Too non-mainstream for a mama that may or may not cd? I went for the "onesize" because I figured, even if she doesn't want to cd at all, it doesn't hurt to have an emergency diaper in the bag, right?
I know for the budget amount I could have gotten a lot more "items" at target, or tru, and that was my main issue, really..
I mean, I could have gotten a gender neutral outfit and breastmilk bags or something? Should I have gone a different route? I checked those store's websites, though and she hadn't registered there, so I assumed she would rather not?
UPDATE: Found out she WILL be cloth diapering ! Woot!
