New Baby Poems

New baby poems are a great way to express your joy and best wishes in case you are lost for own words when you want to write your congratulations to the family of the new baby.

For parents, baby poems are cute to use for the baby announcement cards, for your photo album or scrapbook for baby, as a nursery decoration (have the poem printed on canvas), etc.  

Baby poems can be funny but they can also be descriptive, religious or contemplating. There are special poems for baby girls, baby boys and for twins. And there are also poems for special occassions such as Christmas baby poems or poems for baby's first birthday.

Find a selection of various new baby poems below, and select the one(s) that most suit 'your style'. 

Instead of a baby poem you may also use a baby verse to express your joy and happy feelings! Funny newborn quotes or inspirational baby quotes also are great to cite in your new baby wishes!  


There's nothing quite so sweet as tiny little baby feet!

New Baby Poem

Here is a short new baby poem I wrote myself. You can use it -for personal use only- on your baby congratulations card and adjust it to your needs by inserting baby's name, or baby girl / baby boy / baby twins: Tiny little baby, so precious and small, welcome to the world, we love you all!


(* alternatively baby boy, baby girl, twin babies, baby's name)




More New Baby Poems:

It is a great responsibility, says caution.
It is a tremendous burden, says  experience.
It is the greatest happiness, says love.
It is our child, we say. Unique and precious!

Your parents give you
their tenderness,
their patience,
all their love.
You give them in return
your amazement,
your smile,
your joy,
your absolute confidence.


Feelings you cannot describe.
Love that has come true.
Certainty, to hold the most valuable on earth in your arms.

Who says there is no magic in the world, has never experienced the birth of a child.
Who says wealth is everything, has never seen a child smile.
Who says this world is beyond saving, has forgotten that children represent hope.


A baby is sunshine and
moonbeams and more.
Brightening your world
as never before.

To look at a newborn is like finally
opening a package you looked at and have been curious about for  many months  - and then its contents is a miracle of perfection that surpasses all you ever dreamed of.


May you touch dragonflies and stars, dance with the fairies and talk to the moon. May you grow up with love and gracious hearts and people who care. Welcome to the world, little one - it's been waiting for you!

A baby is a blessing, a gift from heaven above, a precious little angel, to cherish and love.


Babies are angels that fly to the earth, their wings disappear at the time of their birth. One look in their eyes and we are never the same, they are part of us now and that part has a name. That part is your heart and a bond that will not sever, our babies are angels, we love them forever! 


Two tiny feet that wave in the air,

two tiny hands that tug at your hair,

cute bottom for padding,

adorable face, a bundle of joy,

to love and embrace!

We loved you from the very start, 

you stole our breath,

embraced our hearts.

Our life together has just begun,

you're a part of us, little one!

 A wee bit of heaven  drifted down from above
A handful of happiness,  a heart full of love.
The mystery of life,  so sacred and sweet
The giver of joy  so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,  so lovable, too
The world's sweetest miracle, baby, is you. 

(Helen Steiner Rice)




Baby Girl Poems:

A gift from heaven, 

a precious pearl,

a heart filled with dreams

- a sweet little girl!

Tiny fingers, tiny toes, little itty bitty clothes...

Dresses, ribbons and hair to curl, what a precious little baby girl!

Little baby girls bring such delight

with hearts so warm

and smiles so bright!



Baby Boy Poems:

You'll be

his first kiss,

his first love,

his first, best friend.

You are his mom,

he is your whole world,

he is your son.

Baby Boy.

Tiny fingers and ticklish toes.

Cowboy boots, trucks to tow.

A bundle of joy, created by love.

Such a precious gift from God above!


Be prepared ;-)

Mother Of A Boy:

Handprints on cupboards and shoes in the hall. Toilet seat's up and there's mud on the wall.

Every sports channel to him will appeal and the front room doubles as a football field.

The shelves in the kitchen are continually bare. There's toys on the couch and jeans on the chair.

Wrestling and mud and cars and noise, that's what to expect as a mother of a boy!

(based on the poem 'The Mother of Boys' by Patsy Gaut)

Little Boys

Popsicle kisses and big bear hugs. Little red wagons and jars full of bugs. Grass stains, football games, lots of toys - oh the joys!



Twin Babies Poems

There's two to wash and two to dry. There's two who argue and two who cry.

There's two to kiss and two to hug. But best of all, there's two to hug! 

Twenty fingers, twenty toes,
 plenty of work, heaven knows.
Four little arms to hold tight,
 four little cheeks to kiss night-night.


Two sets of hands and two sets of eyes, twins are such a delightful surprise!

Not one little bundle... but two, the stork dropped off to you!


Two precious bundles, to cuddle and kiss - life just doesn't get any better than this!

You know what they say, two heads are better than one.

And with twins in the family, you'll have double the fun!

Triplet Babies Poems

30 little fingers and 30 little toes -

plenty of work, heaven knows!

3 beautiful babies to our delight,

6 little cheeks to kiss goodnight!

Three sets of clothes, three sets of shoes
Three tummies to feed, no time to snooze.
Sometimes they scream, sometimes they shout,
By the end of the day, you're all worn out.
Each precious smile, each sweet little hug,
But best of all, there's three to love!

- simply adjust the numbers for twins, quadruplets, etc. -

Like peas in a pod, tucked safely away, three new little babies are blooming today!


Many good things come in threes, like Charly's Angels, the Musketeers and ABCs.

But triplets simply are the best of all - whether they are big or small!
