Whether it’s cuddling with your baby in the rocking chair late at night, or seeing them crack a smile for the first time – it’s the little moments that make being a new mom so special. You’re feeling a kind of love unlike anything else: pure and unconditional.
This Valentine’s Day, let’s celebrate that love – the unbreakable bond between mom and baby – with thoughtful gifts that go beyond the typical box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers. Here are some gift ideas to treat yourself or surprise a fellow breastfeeding mama!
Square Photo Book
We’re constantly capturing photos on our devices but rarely have something tangible to look at. For the mom who loves to document her life, get a square photo book curated entirely from her Instagram feed.
Oversized Water Bottle
Nothing says “love” like caring for someone’s health, and hydration is important for a breastfeeding mom. Get her an oversized water bottle that she’ll never leave behind.
No-Mess, All-Natural Face Mask
When you’re busy taking care of the most important thing in your life, self-care can fall by the wayside. For a quick and relaxing reboot, try getting the breastfeeding mom in your life a no-mess, all-natural face mask. Or find recipes to make your own.
All-Natural Bath Bombs
Bath time is not only for baby. To get in a calm mindset, try an all-natural bath bomb with your favorite colors or scents. You can easily find recipes online that use ingredients you already have at home.
Being a new mom means spending a lot of time in a rocking chair with your baby in your arms. Don’t disturb the sleeping angel and get a chair caddy or organizer to help you keep everything you need at an arm’s reach. You can stuff all your necessities in the caddy – from your tablet and books to an emergency diaper, snacks, or even a water bottle.
If you know a breastfeeding mom who loves to be out and about – find her a nursing scarf that suits her style. It’s not another thing for her to carry around and it looks just like a regular scarf. If covering up is not your thing, that’s fine too!
Lactation Teas & Cookies
Try your hand at baking lactation cookies like this oatmeal chocolate chip recipe, or get some relaxing lactation tea that might also help with milk supply and quality.
The best gift you can give to a breastfeeding mom is literally anything that will make her life a little easier. Give the gift that keeps giving – a monthly subscription box that will show up at her doorstep with little treats like lotions, cookies, teas, books, and other new products to try. You’ve officially won Valentine’s Day.
