Baby Shower Gifts to Avoid
When buying baby shower gifts for a boy or a girl, here are a few gift options you might want to avoid:
- Sleep positioners, pillows, crib bumpers, or soft bedding. According to the ABCs of safe sleep by American Academy of Pediatrics, these items do not guarantee 100% safety for the baby.
- Heirloom bassinets or other passed-down pieces that hold a sentimental value, for the simple reason that these items are old and might be unsafe baby gifts to use.
- Sleep surfaces (like the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers) that are not approved by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
- Products like teething necklaces can be unsafe for baby shower gifts for a girl or a boy, as they are toxic and also pose choking hazards.
We hope you’ve gained reasonable insight from our shortlist of baby shower gifts. If your best friend is all geared up for parenting in style, you can explore Fawn Design’s gorgeous baby bags collection and pick a bag she would hold on to throughout her parenting journey.
