Top 6 new baby flowers

How to choose the perfect flowers for a new baby

Once you find out about the arrival of a new baby, you might want to customize a flower arrangement based on the sex of the new baby. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t stray from tradition and look for flowers in colors other than pink and blue. Consider picking them based on their meanings — or choose to go with flowers associated with the baby’s birth month.

What are the flowers for different birth months?

Every month is associated with a particular flower, so you might want to buy a flower which matches the birth month of the new baby.

  • January – Carnation
  • February – Iris
  • March – Daffodil
  • April – Daisy
  • May – Lily
  • June – Rose
  • July – Larkspur
  • August – Gladiola
  • September – Aster
  • October – Marigold
  • November – Chrysanthemum
  • December – Poinsettia

Precautions to consider

While buying flowers for a new mother or parents, find out if anyone who will be around them are allergic to flowers. It’s also best to stay away from flowers with powerful scents, as these can be offensive to the new baby as well as the recuperating mother.

Why do we give flowers when someone has a new baby?

When a new baby arrives, there tends to be no shortage of baby gifts from friends and relatives. But sending flowers to the mother or parents is a kind gesture to show that they’re not forgotten.

The time that new mothers take to recuperate varies considerably. Some mothers are up and about in no time, while others take longer. In both instances, being around flowers can have an uplifting effect and the presence of flowers always brightens up spaces. The arrival of a new baby is a special occasion and new parents need all the support they can get.

Bottom line

Congratulate the new parents and baby with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, hand-picked for the baby’s birth month, gender or mom’s favorite color.
