Beautiful Diaper Cakes from Gift The Bambino

Welcome to the party!! Would you like some cake? What better way to kick off a baby shower? Even a virtual one.

Here, have a cupcake.
It's from Gift The Bambino, an online store that sells the most BEAUTIFUL diaper cakes I've ever seen.

I made a diaper cake once. And it sucked, then I made another diaper cake, and it was much better, but NOTHING compared to these. The cakes I made just used diapers and little flowers and other things. But these cakes... These cakes are much more practical.

They're made with receiving blankets, spoons, socks, bodysuits, washcloths, bibs, and other goodies that your baby needs... Oh, and of course DIAPERS!

Want to see Ladybug's? Gift the Bambino sent us one for our baby shower! It's sooo beautiful and it goes great in her room. So great that I don't dare take it apart. Who needs extra blankets and diapers when you can have this gorgeous decoration in your room?
Some people are different though. My friend I made the first diaper cake for kept hers together, my other friend used the entire thing! I guess I'm not very practical cause mine is sitting up on Ladybug's ledge.Now just check out this extravaganza...
Lauren is the woman behind these beautiful baby cakes and other goodies. She also sells lollipops, donuts, and like you saw, cupcakes. Do you know ANYONE who's actually FROM Delaware? Well, she is! She says she's an entrepreneur at heart and crafty by nature so those two aren't so much something she thought out, just the way she is.
"I started making diaper cakes nearly two years ago," she said. "I didn't use any tutorials or anything and had only seen one previously. The cakes are not extremely hard to make but the pops, cupcakes and other items are a little difficult. I always say 'Onesies weren't made to be cupcakes, ya know?'"

Lauren is 27, just a couple of weeks from her second wedding anniversary, and she and her husband have a pet rabbit named Dizzle.
You can check her out on Twitter. She's @Giftthebambino on twitter and you can "Like" her Gift The Bambino Page on facebook.
Now a fun thing I'm having all of my virtual baby shower sponsors give during their feature is some new mom advice! Everyone let's respect people's advice cause we all mother differently. I like to take it all in and filter what I get, and you'll get your chance to share yours too!
Lauren is still a Future Mama but since she spends about 50hrs a week with kids, and has worked with kids for years in daycare, party planning, and other things, she had some great tips for this mama-to-be!

{New Mama Advice}
1. When your baby is old enough, teach him or her fall asleep without you by their side. This will free up time for you to get other things done, veg out or spend time with your hubby.

2. Don't fool yourself into thinking your baby can't wriggle or roll his or her way off a high surface. In the first few months, it's easy to get used to them being basically immobile but once they learn to move about they progress FAST and they don't care if they're 3 feet off the ground or not.

3. Don't rush to turn the car seat forward-facing. Baby is a lot safer in the rear-facing position for a lot longer than is typically recommended.
