Spring is in the air, and with that warm sunshine and hint of birdsong comes BABIES. TONS of babies. I’ve purchased three baby gifts in the past week, and have some more on the horizon.
Are you also in search of baby shower gifts that aren’t lame? Buy the baby a superhero onesie, and then get the mom something that’s a step up from a breast pump: the book “Let’s Panic About Babies!” This book is exactly what you want out of every self-help book but rarely find: it’s laugh-out-loud funny, ridiculous, and actually a tiny bit informative. It will calm you down and freak you out about your pregnancy all at the same time. As one of the authors wrote on her blog: “Let’s Panic About Babies! is a book I wrote with the delightful Alice Bradley. You will like it if you are currently pregnant, if you have children, or if you have absolutely no intention of having children. Not just because it’s funny, but because you can burn it to stay warm.”

Geekling Designs has some of the best geeky onesies I’ve seen in a very long time. Every time I tried to pick a favorite, more incredible ones came along. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, Star Wars, math, Doctor Who, Nintendo, or pretty much any other geek thing, you will find something you love.
Prices range from $3.12 (for hair clips) to $29.15 (for a set of two onesies). The average onesie is $16.66-$18.74.
Turn your baby geeky with onesies, hair clips, t-shirts and more at Etsy.com.
Mike Vasquez of Terrible Designs has started production on a line of geeky onesies, and is calling upon the help of backers on Kickstarter to release the line. His Kickstarter campaign is already at 3 times his goal, but there’s still time if you want to donate a bit and pre-order the line for the geeky baby in your life. I personally love the Chewbacca and TMNT onesies, and hope he’s still creating and selling them when I have kids!
Pre-order onesies of your own starting at a $15 donation, here.
It’s never to early to make sure your child is learning the important things. As someone who uses HTML daily, I would have loved to have started my education at a younger age.
This book is volume one in the three-part “Web Design for Babies” series. Keep an eye out for all of them!
HTML For Babies, $8.99 at Amazon.com

Someone get me an infant to dress, asap. (Sorry, is that too creepy?)
But seriously. If I saw a baby wearing this Batman onesie, I would think they had the coolest parents in the world (and that the baby is unusually buff for its age…)
Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern, and Flash onesies are available for $21.99 at SuperHeroStuff.com.
