First time Mums deserve to know all the tips and tricks that get you through those early weeks. This beautiful care package includes notes on how to best use each item inside, to recover faster from birth. Made by Mums, for Mums!
The First Time Mum Gift Hamper includes:
1 Pair of ‘Massive’ Cotton Undies
These stretchy black cotton briefs are 2 sizes bigger than you would normally buy, so you can comfortably place your giant maternity pads inside. If you had a caesarian birth, these undies sit above the ‘sunroof’ scar. Please select the recipient's regular, pre-pregnant underwear size when ordering.
2 Condoms to make padcicles
No - it’s not what you’re thinking! Half-fill these with tap water, tie them like a balloon and place in the freezer. Once frozen, wrap a square of paper towel around it and place inside your undies (on top of a maternity pad if you’re wearing one). This will soothe and help to reduce the swelling around the area that your baby just came out of!
Silk Sleep Mask
If you only get half an hour’s sleep today, you might as well make it count! For best results, use with ear plugs.
Pukka Herbal Tea Bags
This tea is calming and nurturing... perfect for those moments when you’re gathering your thoughts, just appreciating being a new Mama, or for pondering what the hell you’ve done with your day.
Gum (no nasties)
If you found time to brush your teeth today, well done, you over-achiever. For those who didn’t get there, chew one of these before socialising.
2 x Maternity Pads
These individually-wrapped pads are massive and absorbent... for good reason! Change as necessary, then once the bleeding slows you can try to step down to a maxi pad and eventually panty liners.
2 x Soluble Fibre Sachets
While your skin and muscles are recovering below, you’ll need a way to go to the loo WITHOUT pushing… no doubt you’ve done enough pushing for one year. See back of sachet for directions.
100g block of milk Chocolate
Every new Mama needs an energy boost and a delicious treat to get through the late nights and long days. And because you're a parent now you'll appreciate that this brand of chocolate does not use children to harvest their cocoa beans.
Recycled Paper Pocket Notepad & Pen
Warning: Baby brain is a thing. Use this recycled paper notepad to jot down what time you last fed your bub, what breast you used or what your baby’s name is!
Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
This soothing lip balm will nourish your lips and give you a little boost if and when you decide to head out and interact with other humans.
New Mama Affirmation Cards
These cards are designed to calm and reassure you. If you resonate with any of the black statements, simply turn it over, breathe slowly and read the pink side to yourself a few times.
Foam Ear Plugs
Even though they’re small, babies can be very noisy! Make sure there is someone watching and listening out for bub, plug these in, and enjoy a quiet nap.
