How do I choose the right diapering supplies for a diaper cake or baby shower gift?

Hi everyone,

I am attending a baby shower for my cousin's wife next week and I am planning on gifting her a diaper cake. However, I am unsure about what types of diapering supplies to include in the cake. I want to make sure that I choose products that are useful and practical for the new mom-to-be. Can anyone provide me with some guidance on how to choose the right diapering supplies for a diaper cake or baby shower gift? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi there,

When I made a diaper cake for my best friend's baby shower, I included a mix of different diapering supplies that I found to be most useful for new moms. Firstly, I made sure to use high quality diapers, as this is the primary component of the cake. I also included diaper rash cream, baby wipes, and a diaper pail, as these are all items that new parents will undoubtedly need.

Additionally, I added a few items that are often overlooked in diaper cakes, such as burp cloths, bibs, and receiving blankets. These are small and practical gifts that the new parents will definitely appreciate having on hand. Lastly, I added a few small toys for the baby, such as a rattle and a teething toy, as these are always a hit with new parents.

Overall, I found that mixing practical diapering supplies with a few fun and cute baby items made for a great diaper cake gift that the new mom could really use. Good luck with your gift!



When I made a diaper cake for my friend's baby shower, I took a slightly different approach to the gift. Instead of focusing solely on practical supplies, I also added some fun and unique baby items that the new parents may not have thought to purchase themselves.

For example, I included a few books for the baby's library, such as a board book and a classic children's book. I also added a plush toy and some cute baby socks. These are small items that can be added on top of the cake, and they add a nice touch of personality and fun to the gift.

In addition to these items, I also included some practical supplies such as diapers, wipes, and diaper cream. I made sure to purchase high-quality products in the brand that the parents prefer.

Overall, I found that combining practical supplies with a few unique and fun items made for a well-rounded diaper cake gift. It's essential to know the parents' preferences and to customize the gift accordingly. I hope this approach helps!


Hey there,

I completely agree with the suggestions provided by user 1. However, I would like to add a few more ideas to this discussion.

When I made a diaper cake for my sister's baby shower, I took into consideration the brand of diapers that she preferred. It's essential to know the brand of diapers that the expectant parents will use as not all brands fit the same way. Plus, you don't want your gift to go to waste if the parents don't like a particular brand of diapers.

Furthermore, I found that adding some baby skincare products such as gentle baby shampoo, body wash, and lotion can also be an excellent addition to the diaper cake. Babies need gentle yet effective products to protect their sensitive skin, and these products can prove very useful to the new parents.

Lastly, adding some practical accessories like a diaper bag, changing mat, or a nursing pillow is also a great idea. These items are not only practical but can also make the new parents' life a lot easier.

In conclusion, I believe that combining practical diapering supplies and baby products can make an excellent diaper cake. However, it's essential to know the parents' preferences and customize the gift accordingly. Hope my suggestions help.
