8 Gifts every Postpartum Mother wants but forgets to ask for!
Every new mom thinks she knows what she is going to need when her precious new baby arrives. She goes crazy making a registry at the local baby store, diligently scanning every soft blanket and designer bottle she could possibly desire. Oh ya and diapers. She definitely hasn’t underestimated how many diapers she will use and has stockpiled the nursery. But let’s be serious, she needs more diapers. There’s a lot of other things she could use too, but just doesn’t know it yet. Here are 8 awesome gifts every postpartum mom will use and love!
1. Postpartum Care
As a new mom she most likely underestimated how much work caring for a newborn is. She is sleep deprived, exhausted, and constantly questioning if she is doing things right. The best gift for this mom is postpartum care in the form of a newborn care specialist or postpartum doula. These professionals can give mom some much needed rest and peace of mind. They can help educate and provide assistance to new mothers and address their concerns as well as provide care for mom and baby.
2. Grocery Delivery
If mom lives in an area that offers Shipt or something similar she needs it! The convenience and ease of having groceries delivered means mom and baby can have everything they need without ever having to pack up and leave the house. This means healthy groceries rather than pizza and not having to lug around diaper bags and strollers to get them.
3. Actually any form of Delivery
Ok let’s be real pizza works too. Anything that delivers is good for a new mom. This includes Pizza and Takeout delivery services for the nights mom is too tired to cook. Or another trending delivery service like Blue Apron or Fresh Box in which a complete package of fresh ingredients and simple recipe arrive on your doorstep. Another personal favorite is an Amazon prime membership or gift card so mom can have free two day shipping on thousands of products.
4. Custom Chalkboards to track the babies monthly Stats
Every new mom can’t stop taking photos or talking about their new pride and joy. Custom Chalkboard’s are the coolest new way to combine an adorable pictures of growing baby with their stats. How old are they? How much they weigh. Their favorite things and first words.
5. Spa treatments
Mom’s entire life revolves around caring for someone else. She deserves a little pampering too. Maybe a haircut? How about a pedicure? Or maybe a relaxing massage? After all her muscles are probably a little tired from carrying around her new 10lb baby and all of its equipment too.
6. Coffeehouse Gift card

7. Freezer Meals
