If you know someone who has had a baby recently, why not think about giving them a special day to enjoy. It often happens that there is a great deal of excitement when the baby is born and for a few weeks after, and the new mum and dad may be overwhelmed by visits and new baby gifts, but then everything goes quiet.
Dad will have to be back at work, and the new mum is left at home alone with her new baby and new routine. Although it is lovely to be at home with a small baby, it can also be lonely and sometimes worrying, with so many new things to deal with.
So if you arrange to visit after a few months, you may find that you are very welcome. You could bring a gift set for the new baby; all the baby gifts from the time of the birth will be in use by now, so a bright new baby gift set, some clothes or toys will be much appreciated.
Your thoughtfulness will be valued as you will be reminding the new mum that she hasn’t been forgotten and people are still thinking of her and if you bring a luxury treat for mum as well, then it gives her a real treat and a reminder that she can still sometimes enjoy and indulge herself.
