(gunna "tute" my own horn a little :laughing)

there's a tute on the board about stuffed animal lovies: http://www.craftforum.com/f35/how-ma...mal-lovie-797/

and I know that even with three kids, a quilt would always be cherished.

This is from my DD's baby shower last weekend. My neighbor made this beautiful baby diaper wreath, with all the extras. It turned out great. My DD told me today she hasn't had the heart to take it apart yet.

Sorry about sideways photo's I forgot.

Maybe add a little something just for mom? A nice lotion? Her favourite teas or coffee (maybe decaf, if she is planning to nurse)?

Well, having just had #2, I can say I *still* find stuffed animals to be the most useless gifts. Blankets are hit or miss. We have a couple of special quilts and knit blankets that special people have made for us, but we mostly use the flannel receiving blankets and use them as burp rags. Things I get more use from are:
- bags: I keep 2 diaper bags, one big for long outings and one small for quick trips, plus a bag for my breastpump and accessories that doesn't look like a breastpump bag is helpful
- crib/cradle/co-sleeper/moses basket SHEETS (so much more useful than blankets - we go through lots of sheets)
- piddle pads for the crib or carseat (wool is fabulous for this)
- diaper rash cream (I make my own, but we go through enough that I'm always accepting of more)
- washclothes/cloth wipes
- pacifier clips
- nursing breast pads
- bright wall decorations/mobiles (I have mobiles both over the crib and over the changing table)

And, my #1 fav homemade baby gift: hot meals delivered to my house!
