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!
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:
What to Include:
- If mom is planning to express milk, she will still need bottles to feed baby.
- Why do I prefer the bottle shown below? Check out my blog post Choosing a Baby Bottle (Product Review: Playtex vs. Evenflow)!
Breast Milk Storage Bottles (or bags)
- 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.
- 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!
- 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):
Manual breast pump
Boppy pillow w/ cover
Breast feeding cover-all
