A practical gift that will really stand above all the pink baby stuff at the shower is a pink baby sling or carrier. Mothers of baby girls can avoid a lot of questions about the baby’s sex when venturing out in public by simply using a baby carrier that is gender specific. With little more than the tip of their infant’s nose peeking out of the baby carrier, numerous questions as to whether the baby is a boy or a girl should be expected from passersby who can’t resist the urge to admire a newborn.
So, you see how the modern mom in a hurry to do the household shopping, run errands and get back to the business of taking care of her baby can do a lot to streamline her day with a blue or a pink baby sling. Not that we don’t get pleasure from the fact that our baby must in fact be the cutest one out and about on any given day; it’s just that there are so many admiring fans and so little time. And if they already know whether we are carrying a baby boy or girl seems to save a little time.
PINK BABY SLING, CARRIER and WRAP REVIEWS and RECOMMENDATIONS Speaking of saving precious time, you may want to skip asking mothers to give you some ideas on the best pink baby sling to buy for yourself or your pregnant friend. Most of us tend to be obsessive over one brand or style and can rattle on for long periods of time relating the pros and cons of each. Read the reviews in the forums and find a pink baby carrier that is appropriate for your needs that has a high approval rating.
CARRIERS, SLINGS or WRAPS I know very few ladies who have one single style of baby carrier. Most have a wardrobe of carriers, slings and wraps in all colors and fabrics according to the age and sex of their baby as well as the season of the year. Just because your friend already has one pink baby sling does not indicate that she would not appreciate another brand or style of pink baby carrier or wrap to use on days when baby is not happy riding in her pretty, pink baby stroller.
PERSONALIZED PINK BABY CARRIERS It’s a nice touch to have baby’s name or initials monogrammed on the shoulder strap of the baby sling. Another way to make your gift special is to match it to the baby girl’s pink diaper bag or choose one that coordinates with the baby girl’s pink nursery decor. If you know how to make your own baby sling from a pattern, it might be a good idea to see if you can buy some pretty pink fabric by the yard that came with the baby’s bedding collection to use in making your sling.
