A Peek at the Fun: Looking for a great gift idea for a new mom in your life? I have a perfect new mom gift basket idea for you. Super simple to put together, but what every mom needs!
Okay, so I’m past the newborn baby stage of life (insert sad sigh here). My “babies” are aren’t so much babies anymore. So it’s been a while since Iv’e had to worry about packing a diaper bag, and as it turns out, it’s a skill that is easily lost.
I was babysitting two adorable little girls a few weeks ago, both in diapers, and found myself not as prepared as I could have been. Packing a diaper bag is more than making sure you are stocked with diapers (although don’t skip this step)!!!
Having a fully stocked diaper bag becomes super important when you find yourselves on the side of the road, with a baby in the trunk of the mini van because her diaper is leaking, you’re running out of wipes, and you’re in desperate need of a change of baby clothes. You may have laughed out loud if you saw the spectacle in the parking lot that day. A seasoned mom who was struggling to get this baby taken care of. I made it out okay, as did the adorable little baby, but I remembered the importance of a fully stocked diaper bag.
I remember the days of having my hands full-a couple of tiny kids in tow and a new baby to try to fit into our already busy lifestyle. It’s tough to be a new mom trying to juggle everything and certainly some things get forgotten along the way.
There were moments of forgetting everything from seat belting the kiddos in the car seat to forgetting to make it to the store to buy more diapers. New moms have to be superheroes to manage it all, but even superheroes need a little bit of help every now and again.

If you know a mom who is about to add another baby to her family, you know she will need a little bit of help to balance it all. I have the perfect new mom gift basket idea for you. This fully stocked diaper bag is exactly what she wants. It makes a great gift at a baby shower or something fun to show up at her door with once the baby is born and she’s sleep deprived and needing a little bit of a rescue. I promise, this is a gift that will be needed and loved.
