I will be back oh so very shortly with tales from the baby shower for sister in law last weekend, including finally sharing the hand painted invitations that we made. But, in the meantime, I have a favour to ask.
I am currently putting together a present from husband and I to the baby and the parents. We have bought a few things for the baby, including the rattle/teether above*. But, baby has a lot of presents (seriously, a whole basket full of clothes and so on and baby's not even here yet. Baby's sleeping basket has 3 or 4 rabbits already). I would like to get something for baby's mum and dad too. Which is where you guys come in, specifically those of you that have had babies. Please suggest present ideas [and not, cook them dinner, or watch baby whilst it sleeps - those are great ideas but given I will be baby's Auntie, we will be doing plenty of that anyway.] I want the material shit you can't live without when you have a week old which won't sleep. (Or whatever). If no-one suggests anything good, then they'll be getting the Snotsucker I found on Amazon a while back.
Seriously, Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator had the best review
"if i was a professional booger sucker...and it was my job to suck the snot out of noses 8 hours a day, i would insist on using this thing. but i would want a longer tube, and a holster. "
but they might already have one.
*baby is due in 4 weeks. I am wondering which will arrive first, baby or the rattle...
