New mums – at least the lucky ones – often drown in baby gifts: onesies, pacifiers, swaddles, those blankets to put the baby on and circling how many months they are, etc. These gifts arrive in droves in the weeks before and after the baby. And yes, all of these gifts are wonderful, thoughtful and generous. But they are also all for… the baby. What are we moms, anyway? Chopped liver?
If you really want to make a new mom smile, give her something for se.
Especially during the holidays, a gift that acknowledges how difficult it is to have a new baby will mean a lot. And this is true (perhaps especially) even if the baby is not new born-New; these last three months are just as hard as the first ones! (That doubles if it’s her second or third child. Yes, she’s got all the baby stuff, but now she’s twice as devastated.) So whether she’s in the nursing trenchesadjusting to the rearrangement of the life of the constant newborn nap or just deal with sleep deprivationyouUpcoming gift ideas are all about mom – and do his easier life at a time when she definitely needs all the help she can get.
