According to the CDC, if you can believe them, the most babies are born between July and October. So we are currently in the sweet spot of baby season! To celebrate all the new little lives entering our world in the next few weeks (and all year long), we wanted to put together a list of 10 gifts you can get to welcome baby. These cute and useful items will benefit both mom and baby and make great baby shower gifts!
An absolute necessity for every baby, diapers are a great gift! Some moms might have a preference for brand (and be sure to double check the sizes), but EveryLife diapers are dye-, fragrance-, lotion-, and latex-free AND they have 12 hour leak protection. So EveryLife diapers are easy for everyone to love!
EveryLife is also a pro-life diaper company with a very simple purpose: to create high-performing diapers for every little miracle. EveryLife believes every child is a gift from above that deserves to be protected and celebrated.
Additionally, AmericanMom has partnered with EveryLife to offer 10% off your first order! Just use code AMERICANMOM at checkout!
