Number One Baby Shower Gift You Need to Give

If you’re my friend and pregnant (or will be soon) I’m sorry in advance to ruin the surprise because I’m going to tell you exactly what you’ll be getting from me.

I generally don’t advise straying from a registry because people tend to put the things they need on them, however, first time moms (and I say this with full confidence because I registered for a variety of unnecessary items) tend to not know what in the heck they really NEED.

I was gifted our Leachco Podster and in all honesty I thought I wouldn’t use it but it ended up being a Godsend.


It’s a sling style infant lounger and has a Velcro adjustment tab that can create a cozier feel for smaller infants, once your baby needs more room you can adjust the tab.

Helps with Digestion

If you have a little one who suffers from acid reflux this will help keep their upper body elevated and aid in digestion and it also comes in handy when your baby has a cold as it keeps their head elevated.


I love this for nap time too (of course if your baby is rolling all over the place don’t try this), I would put her in her pod and I’d lay down next to it and we’d both take a snooze. (Disclaimer: Leachco advises against using this for babies to sleep in but our daughter loved to take naps in it)
We still use it to this day and little B will be 1 year old in less than 2 weeks!

Travel Friendly

It’s easy to move from room to room so you can keep your baby near you and because it’s light weight you can take it with you on outings such as a friends house, park, beach. You name it.

Durable & Washable Cover

No need to worry about blow outs ruining the pillow as the the cover is completely washable, just remove and toss in the washer! So easy! It has held up really well with multiple daily uses.


I cannot stress enough how much your new mom friend will thank you. It seriously was one of the best gifts we received, and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

Still don’t believe me? Amazon has a 5 star rating on this! Get the podster! You can thank me later 😉
