I’m in the process of helping to plan a gender-neutral baby shower for a friend of mine, and I kept seeing “Winnie the Pooh” pop up as a gender-neutral baby shower theme over and over again. It makes sense: the color palette includes some great gender neutral colors, with hints of both Piglet pink and Eeyore blue without either being overpowering or suggestive of one gender or another. I love how you can really do a lot with a Winnie the Pooh theme: it can go from upscale elegance to rustic vintage charm with a few tweaks. There’s no denying that whatever you do with a Winnie the Pooh theme baby shower, it’s bound to be super cute!
Here are some of the most adorable Winnie the Pooh baby shower ideas I’ve come across in the last few weeks that are sure to inspire you a baby shower that’s sweet as hunny!
I’ll never forget the moment that Larry found out I was pregnant… because he was right there next to me! Our pregnancy story isn’t like a lot of folks’, as I got pregnant after years of infertility and our first round of IVF. Since we didn’t make our baby the old-fashioned way, we actually had to wait for a phone call from our fertility clinic with my beta test results, ten days after our IVF procedure. Those were easily the longest ten days of our lives! We were on strict instructions not to take a pregnancy test and as much as I wanted to, I didn’t and waited for the call.
When our clinic called, I put my phone on speaker and our IVF coordinator simply said, “Keiko, you’re pregnant! Congratulations!” My husband and I were looking right at each other when she said it, and I’ll never forget the look of stunned surprise on my husband’s face. We were so excited we both couldn’t stop laughing and smiling. After I hung up, I turned to Larry and said: “NOW can I go buy a pregnancy test, please?!” True story: we walked to the pharmacy around the corner right then and there where I bought a whole handful of tests and peed on them all once I got back home!
Every pregnancy reveal story is always a little different, and it’s always fun to share the news with others. But that first moment when you share your news with your partner stands out from all the other announcements.

When I was pregnant with Judah, my cravings and aversions were all over the place: I couldn’t get enough of apples, steak, cheddar cheese or LIFE cereal and yet, I couldn’t even be near once favorite foods of mine like bananas, chicken and even melted butter! While I had some pretty wicked morning sickness the first half of my pregnancy, right around week 20, my appetite came back with a vengeance.
Here are some of my favorite snacks while I was pregnant, many of which I still turn to when I need something yummy to munch on… and I can even share some of them with my little one now, too!
