Sophie the Giraffe
If you are looking for baby shower gift ideas in Singapore, this is one of the most popular baby toys around. This adorable soft teether has had an enduring place in nurseries all over the world since its invention in 1961 in Rumilly, France. Sophie the Giraffe is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, safe for soothing baby’s sore gums. It’s designed to stimulate baby’s senses – sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell (it has a delicious vanilla-like scent due to the natural rubber from the Hevea tree). Sophie was much loved for the first year of our little one’s life.

Aden and Anais Muslin Cloths
Super soft and breathable, Aden and Anais muslin cloths are well-loved for their versatile uses. Good for hot Singapore weather. From birth, they can be used as swaddles. The 42” by 42” cloth also doubles up as a stroller blanket, summer blanket, burp cloth, nursing cover – and for toddlers, a comfort blanket. We love how it washes really well, and stays soft and sturdy for years. Our five-year-old still uses it!

Manduca Pure Cotton Baby Carrier
This award-winning baby carrier is suitable for newborns from 3.5kg to pre-schoolers up to 20kg (about 5 years old) – which is a really LONG time. Some features we love? It comes with a newborn insert built-in, so there is no need to buy another expensive insert, which could be thick and makes it hotter for baby. There are many positions for baby-wearing: Front carry, back carry and hip carry positions with option to use the carrier in backpack style or cross-straps. Also, the terrific little sleeping hood keeps baby’s head from falling backwards – and keeps noise and light out. Really sturdy carrier that will last for years. This particular one is made with 100% organic cotton. A great choice if you are looking for baby shower gifts in Singapore.

My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow
One of the best gifts you can give to a breastfeeding mum. This sturdy pillow by My Brest Friend is designed so that baby can rest completely on the pillow when nursing, and is a real back-saver. Newborns need to eat eight to 12 times a day – that’s the number of times this pillow will be appreciated every day. How’s this for real mummy care!

Great for: Breastfeeding mums, first-time mums
Moo Moo Kow Cloth Diapers
Speaking of newborns feeding eight to 12 times a day…. that is also the number of times those little bundles of joy will soil their diapers. Cloth diapers are especially great for babies prone to nappy rash. Have a chat with the new parents to find out their diapering plan – disposable or reusable? Some parents opt for half-and-half. For those who want to go for fully reusable diapering, the baby would need at least 12 diapers a day. Moo Moo Kow cloth diapers are longwearing and stand heavy-duty laundering – and it’s a Singapore brand. For a taste of cloth diapering, try the starter kit, which include four diapers, various inserts, a waterproof wet bag, and more.

Choose from a wide palette of dreamy fabrics, like this Marching Icecream Party, or Tropical Pineapples. This shop uses all-natural beansprout husks that are sorted, dried in the sun, and handpicked. These pillows are meant to be loosely filled, then placed across baby’s chest while sleeping to prevent the startle reflex.
