Gift guide for the new mom

 

After having my own child, I quickly realized how bad of a friend I was to my friends who had kids before me! Why didn’t I make them meals? Bake them lactation Cookies? Clean their houses? Why did I think dropping off food once and spending half an hour in their home chatting (ugh) was enough / okay? I’m better now – guys! Have another kid and I’ll be all over that meal train!

I’m currently prepping frozen crockpot dump meals for my brother and sister-in-law who are due with baby #3 in 2.5 weeks! I also made a batch of banana pumpkin muffins for the whole family and some mini muffins that I bagged separately for my SIL to grab when she needs a quick snack / that nursing hunger hits. I can’t wait to love on this new baby but I also want to love on B+K and make their lives a little easier in those not-so-easy early days!

Here’s my gift guide for the new mom – can be for the holidays but also for any day of the year!

Comfort gifts:

Help her build her “momiform”
