So I broke down in tears today over a baby basket full of essentials when you have a newborn baby - Our new parent boxes for the new mom and dad's when they have a baby here. (I am posted out of country to washington state from canada) Whenever one of our mom's has a baby they are presented with a new parent box but we have changed it this year and made it incredible with a blanket, lotion, towel, baby powder, themoter, etc - amazing stuff.

I asked if there was anyway we could give them something small and the information and then present them with the basket after the baby is born - but they said that no they would present it after 7 months gestation when things would be okay. I lost my mind! I was in tears, I said if i had gotten that and then lost Rebecca and had to come home to that gift basket received I would be horrified.

I am trying to think of a proposal for the new parent boxes that would make all sides happy.

any suggestions?

hmmm, I don't really know. I would want to scream out "but it isn't always okay after 7 months!". But really, I guess they have their nurseries usually done at that point too. Some people start that stuff at 12 weeks!


I don't really know what the solution is. Sorry I'm not much help!
