How To Make Baby’s First Easter Basket Special!

Can’t decide what to include in your baby’s first Easter Basket?

You’re not alone! Trying to figure out what to put in your baby’s first Easter Basket is a struggle because you typically can’t go with the “classics”. They likely aren’t eating candy yet, and they can’t truly participate in an Easter Egg hunt. But you can still make Easter fun and special both for you and your new little bundle of joy!

What Do You Put In Baby’s First Easter Basket?

For my baby’s first Easter Basket, I wanted to include several different types of fillers. I broke it down into these categories: Feedings, Bath Time, Playtime and Teething, Reading, and Sentimental.

Before we get into the Easter Basket fillers, let’s talk about the actual Easter BASKET and some really fun Easter Basket Alternatives!

It’s super trendy right now to use things other than an actual Easter Basket. Instead, you use something that your baby, toddler, or older child could actually use, and put the gifts in that. The “Easter Basket” is actually a gift too!
