Survival Kits for New Moms

It’s the perfect way to show your support and help her feel prepared for this new stage in life.

A new mom care package can include a variety of items, depending on what the mom needs most. Some basics that every new mom could use are diapers, wipes, formula, and breast pads

#1 First and foremost, take that mama a hot and ready home-cooked meal as well as one to stick in her fridge or freezer for later.

This gesture may trigger tears of gratitude from the post-partum sweetheart, so be prepared.

#2 While we’re chattin’ about food, hear me out – don’t you dare show up at that poor mama’s house with food in a non-disposable container that you need back.

#3 In addition to disposable containers, provide her with paper plates, plastic utensils, paper napkins, plastic storage bags, plastic storage containers (for leftovers) – you get the idea!

#4 As your best buddy is walkin’ around in a newborn haze realizing that if it weren’t for you she would be down to her last roll of toilet paper, she won’t consider this move odd at all.

#5 Diapers and Wipes – Enough said.
