I recently did a blog post about hosting my little sister’s baby shower but I never mentioned the gift I was planning for her. That is because I hadn’t made it yet!!
It has taken me months to come up with what to give her and her husband and my sweet nephew for this once in a lifetime event!!
Many a nights was I up with a fussy baby, wondering what to give them. I always love giving the new mama something because at baby showers the gifts normally surround the baby and not her.
Should I get her cozy Jammies? Nope she already got herself some. Should I get her a pedicure? Nope she already has an appointment for one that her friend is treating her to!! Should I make her a months worth of freezer meals?? Sigh…..Yes I should but I don’t have enough time and patients to do it with two small rowdy boys at my feet.
And then it clicked. When I came home from the hospital with my first I was determined to breastfeed (You can read all about the extremely hard, painful, and grueling journey that I went through here) and I could have used any help that I could get for my milk supply. It would have been a huge bonus if it contributed to my meals for the day!!
So I decided to make her a New Mama Care Package to help her establish her Milk Supply!! In the package I’m including Lactation Protein Balls, two different options of Lactation Smoothie Packs, and some hearty freezer oatmeal for her breakfasts!!
Stay tuned for the delicious recipes!!
