Baby shower gifts are fun!
Cute, little, pretty, soft. All reasons to OOH and AHH over adorable baby stuff. It’s so fun to shop for a baby shower but it can also be overwhelming. There are so many gadgets and gizmos a new mom needs and wants.
How do you know what a new mom needs?
You of course can shop her registry, but even the most thorough registry is missing items that a new mom would love. So how do you know what to get? I have a suggestion for you.
A new mom needs support
And not just from a new bra (which btw, she does need). She needs support from friends and family to help her with the giant and oh-so-important task of breastfeeding her new baby.
Breastfeeding is tough
It can be painful, isolating and doesn’t always happen easily. And to make matters worse, no one likes to talk about it. So how do you help? You can give her a gift to relieve some of the discomforts of breastfeeding.
Get her a nursing necklace!
Let’s face it, nipple cream and breast pads are not too fun. Necessary, yes, but no one OOHS and AHHS over them at a baby shower. Get your friend a gift she will love to open. A nursing necklace is pretty, useful and is a way to show her you’ll be there if she needs some extra support during the tough breastfeeding times.
What is a nursing necklace?
It’s a soft and safe fabric necklace that mom wears when she’s breastfeeding. It alleviates hair pulling, face scratching and de-latching caused by a distracted baby. Simply put, it helps make breastfeeding more comfortable and more successful.
