A traditional baby shower is not the only meaningful way to 'shower' a mother-to-be with the essential things she needs for her newborn; it has also become a custom, a rite of passage that usually goes with becoming a parent. There is an overabundance of baby gifts and items to choose from when buying gifts for new and proud parents and babies. From baby clothing to bedding to baby bath items and safety gears-the sky is truly the limit. However, with so many choices, styles, sizes, and colors, it's difficult to decipher where to start. Will the new parents like what you have chosen? Will the baby be a girl or boy?

Parents, even the richest ones, understand the necessity of buying their babies great amount of diapers, and for a lot of parents, this is an issue of convenience. The first few weeks of parenthood are comprised of a whirlwind of adjustments and emotions. Buying a silver cup for your friend's or relative's baby might be a beautiful idea, but the baby will never use it until he or she is old enough to drink from it. Try to imagine showing up to your friend's baby shower with a huge box of diapers wrapped in adorable paper with bows and ribbon. It will not only be the biggest and most adorable gift, but it is also the most practical.

There are several necessities that could go along with your diaper gift. Almost as essential as diapers is a baby changing table. This provides the mom and baby a comfortable lying-bed where they could have a bonded moment while the baby is getting all propped up after a diaper change. A diaper changing table also provides a safer mat for babies. During diaper-changing, babies tend to move a lot because of the freedom they attain for their legs once the diaper is removed.

Also, a diaper changing table is usually equipped with safety straps that limit the risk of babies falling from them. Aside from diapers and diaper changing tables, babies need many tubs of diaper wipes for cleaning the babies' bottom and a diaper pail with a lid.

Lastly, if the parents happen to receive loads of diapers as baby shower gifts, they will definitely need a baby changing bag where they can store all the diapers which are still not used.
