I will show you many more ideas here and I have diaper babies gift ideas for twins and triplets, too.

Go here here for my diaper babies tutorial. Then come back and use them for one of these cute creations presented here. 

For some of these gifts you will need just one diaper baby for other you'll need a whole bunch of diaper babies. In general it does not matter whether the babies are made of one sock and a washcloth or of a pair of socks and no washcloth. 

This bunch of boy diaper babies is made of socks only. If the parents like a special animal or have a favorite sport, you can select the socks accordingly.

Diaper Babies For Twins And Triplets

Parents of twins, triplets and multiples will need lots of diapers and other baby stuff. It's best if they select what they want to have. So giving a coupon, a money gift or some packs of diapers is the perfect gift. But just like that is "not so cute". With adding some (personalized) diaper babies in a cloth your gift gets a really personal touch!

Diaper babies in a basket are the perfect gift for newborn girls and boys: a decorative basket or box filled with diapers, then a burp cloth to cover and the pampers babies on top. 



Large Diaper Babies In A Basket Gift

Make a cute and practical diaper dolls baby basket gift: Buy a large storage bin. That could be just an ordinary storage basket - made of fabric or plastic - or a special nursery storage basket with a baby design. A storage bin always comes in handy, be it to keep baby stuff on the changing table or to store baby's toys. Collapsible storage baskets can be folded and conveniently put away when you do not need them. so they are great, too.

Fill the bottom of the basket with your diapers, if it's very large you can just put the whole pack in there. If there's space you can also add a baby wipes pack or some baby clothes. Place a burp cloth on top. Then lay your pampers babies on the cloth. You can also mingle them with litte cuddly baby toys, a cuddly musical toy, bath sponges, rubber duckies, etc.

Use clear gift foil wrap and lots of ribbons to perfectly decorate your diaper-babies gift basket.   

"Summer" Diaper Babies

This was a gift for a soon to be 2nd-time-mom from her baby swimming class of the 1st child. They took some diaperbabies in swim suits/bath clothing and then arranged them in a big, flat storage basket so it looked like a swimming pool. Creative and cute, eh?

Diaper Baby & A Cuddly Friend

A sock diaper baby and a bunny lie side by side in baby's bed. You can use a baby rattle, a cuddly animal or a security blanket for this kind of small diaper gift. The size of the cuddly toy just needs to be similar to that of the diaper baby. This is a great idea for a baby shower gift or to congratulate your best friend on her pregnancy.

Fold your burp cloth in half and then fold it over again so the width matched with your baby and toy. Then fold down on both sides, place the baby and soy inside and wrap a broad ribbon around it. Fix on the back with some glue or tape. You can also close it with a bow in front.
