Our neighbor recently had a little girl. She's nursing so I wanted to drop of some things that could help out. I know it's easy to grab something cute to bring for the baby, but likely the parents already have all of that. It's nice to think of the mother in those early days. Dropping off some thoughtful goodies is one of those things that make us all feel good. Giving an unexpected gift is just the best and always proves giving is way better than receiving.
Here's what the little gift basket has:
smart water and vitacoco with pineapple - so she can stay as hydrated as possible. Plus I hear pineapple is supposed to be wonderful for supply.
yogi woman's nursing support - nice to brew before you pump or if you are having trouble with supply. I add in a little fresh lemon juice because the taste is so-so.
Lactation boost by Honest - This helped tremendously with my supply the first few months.
alba good & clean mini peel - I know some people like to drop off nail polish in these sort of gift baskets, but that to me just seems like one more thing to do. A face mask is one of those things that are nice to do for yourself but your hands are mostly free.
Hello Hadley girl bow - she sent a few of these adorable bows for my goddaughter plus a couple extra and I have been loving putting them into baby girl gifts.
ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple bars - I used to be an addict for zone bars in college. These new perfectly simple bars contain 10 grams of protein, are delicious, gluten free, and have real simple ingredients. I have tried the oatmeal and chocolate chip and they are soo good. I always want to bring a little something that's sweet but that also has some protein to a new mother - these fit the bill. Long live the days of eating for your baby (: Here is a coupon for $1 off. I found mine at Target.
burts bees zinnia - a touch of color for those lips!
tic tacs - for any unexpected visitors when you haven't had a chance to brush your teeth
bath bomb - I am a big bath fan. I know not everyone loves baths but I do! As soon as my doctor cleared me it was one of the few places I could really relax, read a book, while JB watched the boys.
What other treats would you put in the gift bag? Anything that particularly helped you when you were a new mom?
