BABBLE BEST: BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENTS
Congratulations! You're soon going to have a baby. But before your new one makes his or her debut, it's a good idea to decide how you'll announce the big arrival. (You can wait until after, but browsing for announcements in between feedings, diaper changes and napping? That's when you send out a mass photo message and call it a day.) Are you a traditionalist who loves the idea of a mailed announcement or more of an instant-gratification, e-mail type of gal? Are you on a tight budget or willing to splurge? As with most things parenting, you've got a mind-numbing number options to pick from. That's why we're here to help. To help streamline the overwhelming task at hand, we compiled our favorite online sites and even picked a favorite announcement for each. We also pinpointed our picks specific birth announcements (for boy, girl, twins, etc) for anyone looking to cut to the chase. (You mean you don't want to browse through thousands of cards? Weird.) Prices vary within each site, but we've based them all on 100 prints for consistency. Happy choosing!
