There are some events in life that don’t pay attention to quarantine conditions or social distancing. Weddings, birthdays, graduations and new babies are festive occasions that keep on happening even if we can’t all attend the events. So how can you celebrate from a distance when someone you love is experiencing life events? Today I’m sharing these ideas to help you celebrate a new baby when you can’t go to a shower!

How to Celebrate a New Baby When You Can’t go to a Shower
Even though we can’t be physically present with baby showers and births because of social distancing, we can still celebrate these special moments with the new mom and dad!
Celebrate with Precious Moments
There are some basics that all new parents need for their babies. These things are universal for all babies. Order these essentials online and have them mailed directly to the new family unit.
I love that you can still order these products from the KeaBabies website or directly from Amazon.com.
The products from KeaBabies are water resistant and scratch proof and let you go hands-free wherever life takes you! The classic diaper bag was designed with parents in mind which means easy access pockets for all the ‘things’ we need as busy moms plus all the bonus parts that make life easier.
The great part about the KeaBabies Diaper Bag Backpack is how easily it can transition to use after the baby diaper bag stage. Just turn it into a toddler play date bag or even a weekend travel tote.
Choose burp cloths that are made to be ultra soft and absorbent, made with 100% organic cotton on both sides of the burp cloth, it is safe for your newborn baby’s sensitive skin.
Make a Blanket
If you are crafty or love to crochet/knit, you could create a personal blanket or afghan just for the special new baby! Choose soft cotton yarn to create something beautiful that will be loved for years.
In these days of social distancing, it is still quite possible to send food to a new parent. If you live in the same city, then you might be able to cook a homemade meal and drop it off on their porch.
Send Baby Washcloth Animals
Take the baby washcloths to the next level with these adorable little chicks!
You can send a gift card to the new family’s favorite delivery food service or grocery store that delivers.
Think about Mom
Many people remember to give gifts to the new baby but don’t think about the new Mom. Why not order some lotions, teas or even new pillows to help her remember to take care of herself?
Order a Picture
When the new Mom sends you a picture of the new arrival, why not get it printed and sent to her as a special gift? Chances are she is living in a fog and would love to have that picture on display but just doesn’t have the mental focus to go through the process. **Remember to ask before you order. You can ask her spouse or family member and still keep it a surprise!
How do you plan to celebrate baby showers and new babies during this season of social distancing?
