One of the perks of being pregnant, besides eating all the yummy treats that you want, is getting to have a gorgeous baby shower that will celebrate your bundle of joy.
It's the one night that no matter how swollen your feet are or how sleepy you may be you will still dress up and celebrate your greatest creation. Long gone are the times when baby showers were a 3-6pm all women event, they've now transformed into an all night extravaganza. Some people may even say they've become a bigger deal than even their wedding!
Although baby showers have evolved, what has stayed the same is the fact that you need to register at a baby store so people know what to get you. This can become a very stressful event especially for first time mom's.
Let's face it we don't always know what to register for, especially with there being so many new gadgets that are made to help make motherhood a bit easier. We have done the work for you and have found 7 baby shower gifts every mom to be should register for. If you haven't registered for any of these yet make sure you do, you can thank us later.

4 -Baby Bullet Food System
We all know breast milk is the best milk, moms that can breast feed their babies without any complications are blessed. Breast milk has many nutrients and minerals that your baby needs to grown strong and healthy.
At about 5-6 months we start to incorporate baby food into our baby's lives. Some moms choose to buy their baby food and others choose to make their own. If you decide to make your own, then the Baby Bullet food System is for you! It's the perfect baby shower gift.
The baby bullet comes with 20 pieces that help making your own baby food at home a breeze. The perks of creating your own baby food is the fact that you know exactly what's going into your baby. When you buy baby food you don't really know what ingredients they're putting into it. One of the best first foods to try on your baby bullet is an avocado, it's full of antioxidants and your baby will love the taste. Here's a quick and easy recipe to try:
1/2 of an avocado
1/2 of a baked sweet potato bake at 325 with no skin
2 tablespoons of baby cereal
1/2 a cup of water
1 pinch of Salt
What to Do
1- Take your avocado cut it into small cubes and add it to your baby bullet
2- To that Add your baked sweet potato and your 2 tablespoons of baby cereal

4- once it is chunky add your pinch of salt and 1/2 a cup of water
5- Blend until smooth

3 - Milk Screen
This little gadget is sure to make the top of your registry list. Milk Screen strips will become your all time favorite. Milk Screen Strips allow you to test your breast milk for alcohol content.
Let's face it you spent 9 months without being able to have one glass of wine, watching your friends and family enjoy a good party having Jello shots while you were sitting back wishing you could have one too.
After those 9 months you can finally have a glass of wine, but if you're breast feeding, you do need to be careful that you don't get your baby "milk drunk". That's when these strips come in handy.
They are super easy to use, simply place a strip inside an ounce of your breast milk and it will tell you if it's safe to give that milk to your baby. If it's not, you simply dump that milk out and wait an hour or so and test again. Your baby is happy and so are you.
