The 8 Best Wacky & Weird Ways to Announce Your Baby's Birth

By Devan McGuinness |

Wacky & weird birth announcements via Babble.comI was one of those bad people who did not send out any birth announcement cards. For some reason they seem to be expected for us to send out after our baby is fresh and in the world. I was all “whatever, I just had a baby.. I don’t have time for this” and I still don’t feel guilty about it… new moms don’t need that on their plate too.

Most of the announcements I have seen over the years are all the same. A fresh-out-of-mom photo of the baby, their name, birth weight and date of birth. All pretty standard and well, the exact same. If I were to ever send out birth announcements (let’s be real, that wont happen), I would try and find a more creative way to do it. Whether that be a more graphically appealing card or something way out there — there are far better ways that will make your new baby stand out.

Do It Like the Celebrities

I guess this only works if you're super famous, but put your photo and all the details in a huge magazine with a large publication. Get paid for it too -- more than most people will make in 10 years.

    How in the name of all that is holy do you have the skill to make a crawling text “Star Wars” birth announcement and not have the ability to put an apostrophe in “it’s” or to spell “oblivious” correctly?!
