Personalized Baby Gifts Help Make Daycare a Snap

Posted on by

For the modern family where often times both parents work out of the home, preparing for a child to attend daycare can be another huge stress on an already busy family. Day care centers vary in size and quality and in some cases have moderate to high child to teacher ratios. Keeping track of the child’s belongings is a struggle for not only the parents, but the care providers as well.

There are unique and practical ways that a parent can utilize for labeling the kids’ things to help ease this level of stress. Receiving these personalized gifts at a baby shower is even better because it will be one less thing the parents have to prepare in the already short 6-12 week maternity or paternity leave before travel to daycare begins.

Baby shower guests can consider giving one or a combination of these personalized baby shower gifts at the next baby shower they attend.

Pacifier Personalized Baby Gift

Not all babies take a pacifier, but those who do typically love them. Babies will rely on a trusted pacifier when they are falling asleep, when they miss a parent or even to hold them off until the next feeding. Pacifiers are also a very personal item and keeping track of whose pacifier is whose is important for baby’s health and comfort.

Many pacifiers look the same. The gift giver can order a personalized pacifier so the care provider will always know that a certain pacifier belongs to a certain child.

Baby Bottle and Sippy Personalized Baby Items

Each child will need to bring his own bottles to daycare, and even children who are breast fed typically take a bottle at child care. There are a wide range of bottles available on the market, however, the world is small and every child seems to have the same.

A great baby shower product gift is a non-adhesive rubberized name ring which fits over nearly every bottle or sippy cup which identifies the item to the child easily and quickly. Day care providers and parents will also find this item helpful when packing up for the day to ensure the child has his or her belongings for the ride home.

Personalized Baby Gift Clothing Tags

A common gift given at many baby showers is clothing. The gift giver can spice up that traditional gift by giving the work out of home family iron on clothing labels for the clothing that will travel to and from day care. Many day care facilities will request that a child be sent with more than just the clothes they arrive in. Day care can be messy and spills happen, so having a change of clothes is essential to keeping baby dry, clean and happy.

While it isn’t common or best practice, it is not altogether unusual for another child at the day care to need a change of clothes and not have one. There are times when your child’s extra clothes may end up on another child. Clothing with a clear and colorful label will help to be sure the parent receives the item back.

Other items that can be labeled with these types of patches are blankets, burp cloths, cloth diapers (non-iron on for PUL cloth diapers), loveys and diaper bags.

Providing personalized baby gift labels at a baby shower is another way to give the gift of personalization that every baby shower planner should consider. The host can give the gift herself, or provide a basket at the door. If the unborn child’s name is known ahead of time, provide a few labels in personalized baby shower invitations to ensure that each gift that the working family receives has a label. This also reduces the need for the family to apply the label themselves.

We don’t know who they are. We don’t know where the came from. All we know is that they are desperate and they have been on a run for a very long time.

They have arrived into our space almost 10 years ago. On the day my son was born.

At first we didn’t stand a chance. A millennium of peace and prosperity makes you soft. But things can change quickly.
