Top 10 New Baby Gifts

No Comments 26 March 2016

Spring 2016 is finally here!  In Oklahoma, we have several different terms for the spring ranging from the frustrating “Allergy Season” to “Planting Season” to stressful “Storm Season.”  Here at Green Bambino, we call it “Baby Shower Season!”

Green Bambino has always had the goal of being experts on the products that our customers purchase from us.  Our staff members are frequently trying out different and new products in efforts to help you select the best items for your needs and wants.  We want to make your baby shower gift shopping experience as efficient and pleasurable as possible.  We even offer complimentary, on the spot gift wrapping, so that all you have to do after you see us is show up to the party with the amazing gift you chose!

Aden + Anais Silky Soft Swaddle Blankets
$19.99/single or $49.99/3-pack


These luxurious swaddle blankets from Aden + Anais are our first go-to anytime a customer walks in and lets us know they’re looking for a gift for a new baby.  Not only do they come in gorgeous patterns and colors, they are crazy soft, lightweight, and multipurpose.  We frequently talk about wearing one as a stylish scarf, using one to swaddle your baby, as a lightweight nursing cover or car seat canopy.  Additionally, you can use a swaddle to mop up spit up or small spills, and because they’re a good size, you could even keep a couple draped over living room furniture as light throw blankets.  We just love these swaddles, and we fully believe you can never have too many of them.

myheartcreative Classic Ring Sling
$79.99/Linen or $174.99/Silk








There are several reasons why we love myheartcreative ring slings, beginning with the fact that they are designed and made right here in the Oklahoma City metro.  Additionally, these slings are beautiful and durable.  The designers carefully choose several gorgeous colorways to make their slings in, and by adding a pocket to the tail of the sling, they’ve truly created a hands-free baby carrier.  Green Bambino’s trained babywearing consultants absolutely love ring slings for new babies (and toddlers).  Purchase this gift with peace of mind, knowing that the staff at GB offers lifetime support with baby carriers purchased from us—meaning that if needed, we will teach the new parents you are buying for how to properly use the sling!

Thirsties Baby All-In-One Diapers
$15.99/Newborn (5-14lbs) or $19.99/One-Size (8-40lbs)

ThirstiesNBSnapdown ThirstiesOS








Is the family you’re shopping for planning to use cloth (washable & reusable) diapers?  All-In-One diapers are so easy for everyone to use that they’d be a welcome addition to almost any cloth diaper stash.  Thirsties All-In-One is trim fitting, quick drying, and best of all: absolutely affordable.  Never be afraid to buy cloth diapers for a family that plans to use them.  With our product knowledge and expertise, we will help you choose practical diapering options and accessories that are sure to please.

Chewelry (Chewable Jewelry)
$9.99-$24.99/Itzy Ritzy or $29.99-$39.99/Chewbeads









Babies are going to attempt to play with and munch on any jewelry we wear, so we might as well offer them a safe and fun option, right?  The chewable jewelry we carry is made from a safe, soft, 100% food-grade silicone.  There are dozens of designs and colors to choose from, making it simple to find a piece to go with almost every person’s style.  There are even options for dads!

Itzy Ritzy Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf











We love gifts that are multipurpose and great for both mom AND baby.  A perfect fit is the Itzy Ritzy Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf.  Say goodbye to the old, apron-style nursing cover.  The scarf can be used as a full-coverage nursing cover that allows mom and baby to maintain both skin-to-skin and eye contact.  It can also be used as a light blanket, or all on-the-go.  Itzy Ritzy offers so many fun, on-trend patterns, so there’s something to match almost everyone’s style.  Available in a lightweight, jersey knit fabric or a breezy 100% muslin cotton.

Honest Company Diapers & Rash Cream
$14.49/pack of diapers, $11.99/diaper rash cream







What new family wouldn’t appreciate diapers? Honest Company diapers are super effective, all while staying mostly plant-based and avoiding chlorine processing and other harsh chemicals that can irritate a newborn baby’s skin.  Since you get to choose from several on-trend diaper designs, you can feel like you’re giving a gift that is both practical and adorable.  Pair your gift of diapers with Honest Company’s Diaper Rash Cream to help give those new parents a hypoallergenic, organic treatment option to reach for when the need strikes.

CJ’s Shea BUTTer Balm or CJ’s Best Boobie Butter
$12.99/2 oz jar

CJ'sBoobiecj's lavteatree





CJ’s BUTTER Balm was originally developed as a cloth diapering safe bottom balm, but has been found to remedy over 30 different skin/hair ailments.  Both the BUTTer Balm and the Boobie Butter are incredibly multipurpose products that can be used for virtually any skin irritation.  Boobie Butter is a must-have for any nursing mother, and BUTTer Balm is great for everyone to have on hand.  CJ’s Butter formulas are food-grade, so there’s absolutely no need to wipe it off of sore or cracked nipples before feeding baby.  As a plus, BUTTer Balm is available is several delicious, all-natural fragrances.

Buddie Toy









Even if it takes all year to cut those new teeth, babies will constantly want to drool and munch all over stuff. Give the new baby you’re buying for a colorful, easy-to-hold (and bite!) toy. These are made in the USA, dishwasher safe, and made from a food grade material that is PVC, BPA, Phthalate and Latex-free.  They’re very easy for little hands to hold, and have several “buds” to help alleviate teething pain and satisfy the need the chew.

Ju-Ju-Be Be Quick











We love these roomy little bags for just about everything.  They’re machine washable, and super versatile.  Use one as a wristlet with a diaper change and a spare set of clothes for quick trips, a small purse, add a long strap to carry it across your body, or just use it for extra organization inside a large diaper bag or tote.  Ju-Ju-Be prints are always gorgeous and in-style.

Little Something for Mama-To-Be Kit or Little Something for Baby Kit by Earth Mama Angel Baby

EarthMamaLittleSomethingBaby EarthMamaLittleSomethingMama








A welcome gift of safe, all natural, herbal organic pregnancy or baby care items.  A Little Something for Baby includes travel-sized essentials to help safely clean, soothe, and smooth a sweet, organic baby. The Mama kit is a pocket full of pampering for pregnant moms.  We really love to sell these paired with a Be Quick pouch from Ju-Ju-Be.


Happy shopping!

*Please know that exchanges are absolutely hassle-free at Green Bambino.  If for any reason the person you buy a gift for needs to exchange for a different size, pattern, or different item all together, they will be able to do so without any issues.

The Milk-Saver

1 Comment 14 March 2012

A lot of expecting moms ask us, “What do I really need for when baby comes?” Along with a car seat, diapers, and somewhere safe for baby to sleep, I’d add the Milk Saver to that list for any mom planning to breastfeed.

The patented design allows you to breastfeed anywhere without worrying about embarrassing leaks or uncomfortable nursing pads. Slim and portable, no one will even know you are wearing it. Best of all — it collects your leaking breast milk when you nurse, allowing you to store extra breast milk effortlessly.

The milk-saver is easy to use; simply slip into your bra-cup on the non-nursing side before you breastfeed. The milk-saver collects the breast milk that is leaked out when your milk lets down. You can store this milk and save it for any time its needed.

I would have given anything when I was nursing my son to collect more milk so effortlessly. Knowing now that I washed away quite a bit of my “liquid gold,” I want every mom to know about this amazing product.
