70 diapers: Although the newborn diapers are cute, I used the number 2 diaper for 6 kg or 13 pound baby.
They may sound large but they are still quite small and you will be providing diapers for the mom-to-be probably when she really needs them.
You know the point where you are sleep deprived and suddenly run out of diapers at 3 in the morning time of new parenthood.
That being said, the smaller the diapers, the more you will need.
3 receiving blankets: Try to get two that match in color and one that is slightly different but still matches your overall color scheme.
2 cloth bibs: It is important that you just purchase cloth bibs because the plastic lined ones do not hang properly.
Linking rings: You only need two or three for this project but I just placed the rest of the rings around the motorcycle and used a few to resemble a key chain.
1-4oz bottle: Make sure you purchase a bottle that is BPA free and that it is clear and not colored.
1 face cloth: Again, I purchased a set of 4 baby cloths that I included with the motorcycle diaper cake gift. 1 teddy bear: You will change the size depending on the size of the bike but you want one that can sit on the back wheel and still reach the handlebars.
1 pair of baby socks: Another multi-item, I bought a package of three and then just added them to the gift after. A great idea is to dress up the bear in gloves and socks with the extra pairs that you have.
3 feet of ribbon or cord: I actually used an elastic waistband that I picked up from a fabric store. My first thought was a ribbon but I found the elastic could be used as a tread and it was wide enough to serve as a ribbon. However, you cab use the ribbon if you prefer.
70 strips of paper: You will need 70 pieces of paper cut to 1 or 2 inches wide by 7 inches long.
Just wanted to show some of our truly unique creations.
