New Mama Care Package

A friend of mine recently asked me for ideas for a care package she was putting together for her friend who just had a baby. I thought this would be a great thing to write down so that I can easily share with friends and family. When I had my son, a friend dropped off some food from a local grocer– I can still taste the fresh house made almond butter and granola to this day. Honestly, I think food might be at the top of the list! At least for me, I was exceptionally hungry and cooking was the last thing I wanted to do. (newborn snuggles, hello!) But, the options are endless when it comes to pampering a new mom.

The First Forty Days Cookbook (plus, bring a dish or two from the book!)
• A basket of local goodies– fruits, nut butter, oatmeal cookies, granola, fresh coffee beans
• A new candle with a light, fresh scent (my current personal favorite)
• Fresh flowers for her bedside
• A big water bottle (especially if nursing, she will be THIRSTY)
• New pajamas or robe (consider nursing friendly)
• Bubble bath, nail polish, magazines… she will need pampering!
• A luxurious body lotion that she perhaps won’t buy herself
• Some postpartum essentials (unless you think she has this covered) like earth mama spray and nipple cream
• A comfortable lounge shirt (I love this one that happens to be very nursing friendly)
• A little something sweet for baby! As much as mom wants to be pampered, she definitely will always love gifts for her newborn!
