Monkey Themed Diaper Cake Designs

I thought it would be helpful to review our monkey themed diaper cake offerings in a single blog post as this is one of the most popular baby themes.  We have three different monkey themed baby diaper cakes.  Any of these would make a unique baby gift or baby shower gift for the new or expectant mom.   The first is our Lil Twin Monkey 5 Tier Diaper Cake, the second is the Our Lil Monkey 4 Tier Diaper Cake, and our third is the Welcome to the Zoo 3 Tier Diaper Cake.  Let’s get started with a overview of each design.

Lil Twin Monkey 5 Tier Twin Diaper Cake

Lil Twin Monkey 5 Tier Diaper Cake

Our largest monkey themed diaper cake is designed specifically for twin babies.  We start with a five tier base cake consisting of 110 Pampers Swaddler Size 1-2 diapers.  I picked green and brown polka dot ribbons along with some vine embellishments to dress up the cake.  I then included four washcloths and wrapped them in the ribbon along with a silicone pacifier so that each baby will get two washcloths and a pacifier.  Since this is a more upscale diaper cake I included Burt’s Bees products.  For those of you not familiar with Burt’s Bees, they offer an all natural product line which we have found to be very appealing to new moms who enjoy all natural products for baby care.  We use the Burt Bees Getting Started Kit which features five sampler items:

  • Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion
  • Baby Bee Shampoo & Body Wash
  • Baby Bee Diaper Ointment
  • Baby Bee Nourishing Oil
  • Baby Bee Buttermilk Soap

Lastly, we finish up the design with two Gund Mambo Junior plush toys.  I really like Mambo and this little guy is 10 inches tall and very soft and cuddly, a characteristic of all Gund plush toys.  He’s holding a banana which really adds to the overall design look.

Our Lil Monkey 4 Tier Diaper Cake

This baby diaper cake consists of 70 Pampers Swaddler diapers arranged in a 4 tier design.  We use green and brown polka dot ribbon to dress up each layer of the cake.  Also included are two wash cloths, a silicone pacifier, and the Burt’s Bees Getting Started Kit, similar to our 5 tier twin cake.  For this design I am using the full size Mambo who measures 14 inches tall.  He’s holding a banana just like Mambo Jr., and it every bit as cuddly.

We often get questions about whether or not all the diaper are usable.  For all our diaper cakes, we hand-make each one so that the new mom can easily disassemble the diapers from the cake and use them as if they just came out of the package.  In this design, the new mom will receive 70 usable diapers that she can use for the care of the new baby.  We never use pins, tape, or any material that could damage any of the diapers.

Welcome to the Zoo 3 Tier Diaper Cake

Welcome to the Zoo 3 Tier Diaper Cake

Our last addition is Welcome to the Zoo. I wanted to branch away from the darker browns and create a design that has a different color scheme yet still features a monkey plush toy.  This diaper cake starts with a three tier base cake designed using 40 Pampers Swaddler 1-2 diapers.  Instead of the brown and green polka dots used on the previously mention cakes, I am using a cream colored baby zoo animal receiving blanket.  This blanket has baby zoo animals such as a giraffe, monkey, lion, and elephant arranged in an alternating fashion.  I add a simple green ribbon around the blanket for an accent.  The middle layer uses a wide off-white ribbon along with a “Welcome to the Zoo” decal to support the overall design theme.  The Gund plush toy on this baby diaper cake makes animal sounds when you squeeze him.  As such, his name is Animal Chatter (clever!).  Lastly, the top layer gets the same off-white ribbon as the second layer plus a green bow and silicone pacifier.  I finish this baby diaper cake with Johnson and Johnson travel pack products featuring their body wash, baby powder, and baby shampoo.

So that’s the overview of our monkey themed diaper cakes.  This theme is very popular for a baby’s nursery and as for baby shower themes as evidenced by all the bedding, decorations, invitations, and baby shower accessories that are available.  I invite you to consider one of our monkey diaper cakes as an cute and adorable baby gift for the new mom.  As always, your comments are welcome.

Owl Diaper Cake

We’re introducing our Owl Diaper Cake as a new addition to our Lil’ Baby Cakes product line.  I really love the owl theme that is becoming more and more popular today.  I’ve had this theme design in my head for quite some time, however, I had problems finding an owl plush toy that would  fit the theme.  I’m happy to have found this colorful plush toy to serve as the focal point for this offering.  Here’s a description of this design.

This adorable cake starts with a 2 tier base made from 40 Pampers Swaddler 1 diapers.  We then added some colorful dotted ribbon along with pink trim ribbon to set the overall color cue for the diaper cake.  We added a bottle mounted horizontally on the top of the cake to act as a “perch” for the owl.  Our owl is a colorful patterned plush toy that matches popular color themes used for baby showers or in a baby’s nursery.

New moms enjoy the Johnson and Johnson baby products so we added the travel size shampoo, baby lotion, and baby powder.  We also added some coordinating crinkly paper and a pink and green bow to complete the diaper cake.

Not shown is the white tulle and ribbon used to wrap the Owl Diaper Cake for baby gift giving.  An optional gift card is also provided to create a personalized message for the new mom and family.

We’re excited to offer our customers the Owl Diaper Cake.  Whether you’re shopping for a baby shower gift or a baby gift to send by mail, we invite you to consider our new design.  We’re sure it will become a popular baby gift the new mom will love.  You can find out more information about this design on our product detail page located here:  Owl Diaper Cake

Top Reasons Women Fear Childbirth…Part 1

Having a baby has been depicted by Hollywood as a dramatic, screaming, emotional event. Well, the truth is that sometimes it’s all of those things. But not necessarily the way that television and film makers make it out to be. Thanks to reality birth shows that seem to plaster themselves on channel after channel, many women find their fear level ratcheted up as they watch dramatic event after event unfold in front of their eyes.  It’s not necessary, and in reality we all fear the process enough in our own minds that we just don’t need the extra help from nighttime entertainment.

Every woman fears some part of child birth. Some of them are for funny reasons, some for more serious ones.  In this two-part series we are going to hash over the top eight reasons women fear delivery—and we’re going to start with those little issues that leave you laughing. Wondering later, why did that even matter to me? Continue reading “Top Reasons Women Fear Childbirth…Part 1”
