Baby shower gift ideas
- Baby Massage voucher (Shameless plug for ourselves of course!) A baby massage course is a really thoughtful gift that give a new skill and helps to develop the bond between mum and baby.
- Food – Some wholesome meals for the freezer that new parents can chuck in to feed themselves after a hard day of parenting. Organise a few people to create a rota of food delivery. Or if you can’t make the food yourself, there are some really good quality frozen meal delivery services.
- A thermos cup to keep cups of tea warm
- Epsom salts for a relaxing bath to help replenish magnesium levels. NB – Some women find this can affect their milk supply if breastfeeding, so whilst this is safe if you’re struggling with supply should avoid just to be safe.
- Neals Yard Arnica & Seaweed bubble bath
- Pukka Mother and Baby tea for soothing new mums, contains herbs to boost breastfeeding
- Good quality dark chocolate for the antioxidants and endorphins!
- The Wonder Weeks book – based on excellent research and infant development studies.
- Buggy Buddy (a clip for the buggy to help carry heavy shopping bags) http://www.mybuggybuddy.co.uk/productView.php?pID=5
