My cousin's 17 year old daughter is expecting a baby girl in July. I decided to buy her a Moby, Sophie the giraffe, and The Baby Book by Dr. Sears, instead of buying stuff from her registry. I included a note saying that these are things I wished I'd known about before I had my baby and that I hoped that she and her baby would enjoy them.
Then I sent her mom a message saying that if she would rather have other stuff, for whatever reason, that she could return them and get the other stuff and I wouldn't have any hard feelings. I feel good about my purchase and hope that these things will help this young mom get started out on the right foot and develop a great bond with her baby.
By the way, I was able to get all of this on Amazon.com for just under $70 and with free super saver shipping.
(Edited to correct: I realized that I had ordered a Moby blanket and NOT the wrap, so I had to change my order. It cost a bit more, but it's all good.)
