Sometimes I like to bring a little gift to baby showers just for mom. Nothing big, just some items that I know she’s going to need the first few days/weeks when she gets home with that precious new baby. I call it the New Mom Survival Kit and let me tell you, mommies love it.
Here are some things I put in it:
Chocolate or candy
And my favorite:
In Case of Emergency card–with the names and numbers of three friends who promise to be her ‘on-call’ support for her the first few months. Day or night, whatever she needs she can call them.
So tell me, what is your favorite gift to give new mommies? What was the best gift you got when you were a new mommy?
