Baby Bottle Relay Race

You will need two baby bottles, four buckets, and two teams.

Place two buckets near each other and the other two approximately 6-10 feet in front of them. Divide players into two teams, and then divide each team in half. Place each half of the team at a bucket.

When the relay race begins, a player from each team puts a baby bottle between their legs and runs as fast as they can to the bucket that is 6-10 feet away. When they get to the bucket they must drop the bottle into the bucket without using their hands. If they drop the bottle at anytime they must take the bottle back to the start and try again. If they get the bottle in the bucket, then next player on their team gets the bottle out of the bucket, places it between their legs, and races across to the other bucket. You keep going until all player on one team have finished successfully. Which ever team finishes first are the winners! — Submitted by Jennifer B.

Tub Toss

Take the nipples from about 10-12 baby bottles, you may also be able to buy just a package of nipples without bottles at a baby store. Get a baby bathtub and place it 5-10 feet from where the player will stand. If placed at a distance this can become quite difficult because the nipples are fairly lightweight so make sure to judge accordingly.

The aim of the game is for the guests to take turns tossing the nipples into the bathtub. The person who gets the most baby bottle nipples into the tub wins. For a short game, or with lots of players, you can have them each take one turn, for longer games give each player 2 or 3 turns. If there is a tie give the players one last tie-breaker turn to finish the game.

Depending on the baby bathtub used, after the game is complete the tub makes a nice gift for the mother-to-be, too.

Diaper Changing Relay Race

You will need one baby doll and one diaper for each team, and a table for “changing the baby.”

Break your guests into teams of at least 3 or 4. Bigger parties can have more teams to make the game go faster, smaller parties may need to have less teams.

When the relay race begins, each team will stand on one end of the room. The first person on the team takes the baby doll and runs as fast as they can to the “changing table” on the other side of the room. When they get to the table they must change the baby using the diaper provided. You should have either a cloth diaper and 2 diaper pins, or to make the game easier, a disposable diaper with the reusable straps. To make it a bit more funny you can also add a bottle of baby powder to the game and require each baby’s bottom to be powdered before diapering. Be warned, the chance for a big white mess increases dramatically with this option.

Once they get the baby diapered they must run back to the starting area and pass the baby off to the next teammate. The “baby” must be diapered properly. If the diaper falls off as the player is running back they must go back and re-diaper. The next player on their team takes the baby, runs to the changing table, removes the diaper, and then diapers the baby again the same way. You keep going until all player on one team have finished successfully.

Which ever team finishes first are the winners!

You will be surprised how many people can not diaper a baby with a cloth diaper, and I promise you, one player will, in a frantic rush, diaper the baby’s head (or start to before blushing and stopping herself hoping no one saw her!) If you use disposable make sure to give the left overs to the mommy-to-be, she’ll be needed tons soon, and if you use cloth diapers in the game make sure she takes those, too, since they make great for burp cloths… and we all know she will be needing TONS of those as well.

Dress The Baby

This game can be played individually or in teams of 2 or 3 players. Get a toy baby or baby doll for each guest or team of players. Give each group one baby doll, a set of clothes for the baby, a cloth diaper with diaper pins, a bib. The set of clothes should be a complicated piece of baby clothing like a full button down romper and little baby socks. Now each group must dress the baby as fast as possible. However, each guest is only allowed to use one hand.

If your guests are playing the game single it can become very tricky. In groups too you’ll be surprised at how much co-ordination a simple task as this can require! This game is great fun and really gets your guests working together and interacting.
