Time to Eat! For Breast Fed Babies Gift Basket

by , under Baby Shower, Gifts Ideas

Making a Time to Eat! gift basket may be difficult if you don’t know whether mommy-to-be is planning to breastfeed or formula feed.  Here I will give you tips for putting together a Time to Eat Themed Gift Basket for $30 for a breast fed baby, and everything in it will be absolutely useful!

The Container:

You could go with a traditional bag or one of these containers.  But, if you want to really make your gift stand out, consider putting the items in a dish drainer or a basket that mom can use to store bottles in the cupboard.  Here are some great, and cheap, options:

I use these in my kitchen cupboard to store bottles, their parts, formula, etc.
Mainstays Storage Basket
$2.50 at Walmart

Rubbermaid Antimicrobial Dish Drainer, Small, White
$8 at Walmart

What to Include:


Evenflo TruVent Angled Bottle
$5 at Amazon (can also be found at some local Walmarts and Targets)

Breast Milk Storage Bottles (or bags)

Lansinoh Breast Milk Storage Bottles $7.50 for 4 pack at Babies R Us

Burp Cloths

    • These Dundee burp cloths will work just fine, but if you want to splurge on the best burp cloths (I’m talking $22 for 10) then get these ones from Gerber.

Dundee Burp Cloths
$10 for 6 pack at Amazon

Bottle brush

    • Mom will still need to clean parts to her breast pump and the bottles for when she expresses milk.  So, she will need a bottle brush.  Wonder why I prefer the bottle brush below?  Check out Product Review: Bottle Brushes!

Munchkin Bottle and Nipple Brush Two for $4 or one for $2 at Target

Dish soap

    • Normal dish soap is fine.  You can even get a 9 oz. bottle of regular stuff for $1.  But if mommy-to-be is one of those over-the-top safety nut kind of mommies, make sure it is hypoallergenic or baby safe.

Optional Items to Include (if you want to splurge):

Dishwasher basket

Manual breast pump

Breast pads

Lanolin Cream

Boppy pillow w/ cover

Breast feeding cover-all
