Summer pregnancies and births are made even harder in hot humid weather. Help her recover in the Summer months, with a Summer Birth Recovery hamper.
The Summer Birth Recovery Hamper Includes:
1L single-handed drink bottle:
Easy grab-and sip bottle that can be filled with water, iced tea or booze depending what mood she's in!
Cotton face towel:
When the New Mum receives this gift, she'll be delighted with a clean, fluffy 100% cotton towel to dampen and keep on her body over Summer... and one that doesn't smell like off baby-puke!
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. Great for making iced tea in Summer.
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!
Hydrating 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.
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!
