Is Your Dog or Cat Ready for The New Baby?

Here are some sweet ways to honor your pets at the Baby Shower—they are a part of the family, after all!
When it was time to plan my sister’s baby shower, I knew we needed to honor their beloved fur babies as well. They’ve been there through thick and thin and are truly a part of the family. I’ve included some simple ways to honor our beloved pets as we make room for baby!
At my sister’s baby shower, I created a personalized iron-on transfer onesie craft station where guests could create their own custom onesie for the baby on the way. I made sure to include some photos of their Goldendoodles as well as some phrases like “My Siblings are Goldendoodles” cut out in the shape of a heart. I outline specifically how I created it on this blog post.
Another great way to include your pups (or kittens!) is their very own page in a personalized ABC Coloring Book Activity! Not only is the book customizable with baby’s name or siblings and family pages, but you can also include a page for your beloved family pet. Guests each color a page and sign the bottom of the page so it doubles as a guest book as well. This is such a great activity for young and old! Low-pressure, low-key, and a GREAT memory! It’s also perfect for a long-distance baby shower. Mail the pages out to family and friends and ask them to color, sign, and return to assemble into a book for the baby.
Not only is it a great way to include your pet, but it’s also a great way to remember this season and take a “snapshot” of life before baby. Personalized pages are also perfect for human siblings, too.
