Gift Exchange? & Birth Buddies?

SO I was lurking on the October board and saw that they did a gift exchange. i thought it's a fantastic idea but IDK if you ladies would be interested?

Hi Ladies! So this is our official gift swap sign-up thread. Sign-up will close in a week on Thursday, July 25th. Must have 300 posts to sign-up. Please PM your name/address to me once you sign-up here and then I will try and match partners on the 26th or 27th. Gift is to be between $20-$25 before shipping. Please mail your gifts by Thursday the 15th of August (Will give you 2 1/2 weeks to shop after you get your swap partner's info.) How about we plan on opening gifts on the 31st of August (a Saturday). I will start a thread where you can post your pics of what you received.

Please say if you are in and answer these questions to help your partner shop! THANKS LADIES!

Name:
Due Date:
Gender:
Baby's Name (if decided/known):
Anything specific you need?
Cloth or disposable diapers? Favorite brands?
Breastfeeding or bottle-feeding?
Baby care products: Do you use natural products? Favorite/normal brands used?
Any clothing items you need?
Nursery theme (if you have one)?
Do you plan on baby-wearing?
Anything you do NOT need/want?
Other baby favorites?

-This is what was posted there. If you think this is a good idea post on this board and we will start the process if enough of us want to participate.

ALSO-

on my April 08 board we had "birth buddies" so that we got an update sooner about someone in labor. This would be through texting or something like that. If you would be interested in this please let me know though this thread as well.

Thanks girls!

I think this is a great idea! On both counts.

How will we choose birth buddies? I assume they shouldn't be due too close to each other otherwise they might be in labor at the same time....

Wow- I was just thinking about both these things. Yes- I would be interested in both. As for picking birth buddies we could just figure out who wants to participate and then just put the names on paper, throw them in the air and pick names that way?

I did this on my other birthboards. Always a fun idea. Id be interested. Normally its see whose interested and the moderators help with it to figure out how people are matched and what not.

I'm in! Idk if there's a point in me having a birth buddy bc I'm a scheduled Csection, but I'd be willing to do that too!

@Jana- your csec is just as important to us too!!! Smile I think it's totally worth it! I'm sure that Jules and I can figure out a way. I agree with Roxi that the due dates should kinda be far away from each other but with 3 of us on the same day is kinda hard haha. but I think it would be good if we do it. Smile Well both of them. gifts are always fun! Smile
