Ten Things give a new mom after the birth of her little one

  • the coziest, softest swaddle blankets out there
  • the only baby booties that will stay on her little one's feet
  • a warm home-made meal, with a loaf of italian bread
  • dry shampoo, because let's face it, some days you just don't have the time to wash your mop
  • a nursing tank and nipple balm to make breastfeeding a bit more bearable
  • the ultimate parenting guide, thank the Lord for the five S's
  • a basket/cooler of hearty & healthy snacks; trail mix, granola bars, fresh 'pre-washed and cut' fruit
  • a monogrammed tervis tumbler to help her stay hydrated
  • cheek and lip stain, a quick way to brighten up her face on those extra exhausting days
  • an everyday piece of jewelry, monogrammed with their child's name or initial 
So many of my girlfriends are either new mamas, or are currently pregnant. In spirit of all of the new baby excitement, I decided to step outside the box this week, and dedicate a post just to them. The initial transition into motherhood is not easy, and anything you can do to make her life just a bit easier is monumental to her day.
