Baby Relay. If you have had a baby, you know how hard it is to get out of the house so why not have a relay race to see how the guests do. Divide the guests into teams and set up stations. Have one station for getting mom ready – include a dress, headband, shoes, and lip gloss (a new mom can dream, right?). Then that person has to run to the diaper bag station to tag in he next teammate. Have all the things you might need to put in your diaper bag out and the person must nicely fill the diaper bag with diapers, wipes, diaper cream, burp cloths, change of clothes etc. Then the next station is getting the baby ready. Have baby doll ready to diaper, dress and put in the stroller or wearable pack. The team to complete this relay with everyone on and intact wins!
