6 Ideal Gifts for New Mothers

When a baby is born, the focus is often all on the baby. Sometimes, people forget that a new mother needs some TLC too. The first few weeks getting used to parenthood can be a challenge and gifts, both practical and fun, can make it an awful lot easier. So, here are some ideas on what to get for first time mothers after giving birth.

Food
A new mother doesn’t just need to eat for herself; if she’s breastfeeding, the baby will rely on getting nutrition from her too. The ironic part is, although she needs to eat regularly, she won’t have the time or energy to cook. Dropping off some meals that she can freeze and use when she needs to will be a big weight off her mind.

Flowers
It may seem like a small gesture, but a bunch of flowers can really do a new mother good. You can’t go wrong with long stem roses. Her home will be surrounded by baby clothes, nappies, bottles, blankets and more. Having said that, a beautiful bunch of flowers will not only brighten the home up, but they’ll be a reminder that people are thinking of her as well.

A Good Moisturiser
Giving birth will exhaust any new mother. The amount of fluid lost throughout the process will leave skin feeling dry and once home from the hospital, new mothers may feel like they need a good pamper session. A good moisturiser and body cream could do her skin wonders so take a look at the top moisturisers for new mothers.

Bottled Water
A newborn baby will take a lot out of you, including some of your hydration. It’s important for new mothers to stay hydrated for their sakes and their baby’s. Many new mothers complain of headaches because they forget to drink more water after giving birth. Whether you stock the fridge with bottles of water or buy her, her own refillable bottle to keep at her side, it will trigger her memory.

Housework
New mothers often worry about how they’ll get all their chores done. There’s a simple answer – they won’t. It’s often impossible to attend to a newborn and get all the housework done at the same time, especially while still recovering from giving birth. Having people around who are willing to do the dishes, washing and run the vacuum around is a godsend.

Offer to Babysit
A mother may not want to part with her baby for a while, but the time will come where she feels she needs to re-join the adult world, if only for an hour. It may mean allowing her to pop to the shop or go get herself a haircut. She may just want a meal out with her partner or to take a nice long soak in the bath. Whatever she chooses to do, the time you can give her away from the baby will mean she gets to push the reset button and return refreshed.
Whatever you choose to give to a new mother, if it’s her you’ve thought about, you can be sure she’ll be grateful.
