How to create a gift a new mama will love - some healthy snacks that are ready to go when hunger strikes!
Simple & Practical Gift Ideas for New Moms!
A new baby is such a fun occasion to celebrate! These simple & cheap Hospital Survival Kits for New Parents or Newborn Survival Kits are great gift options to take to a baby shower because they contain some forgotten necessities for the parents.
But, what about a gift AFTER the baby is born?
Moms and babies get showered with love and gifts before delivery, but after that sweet bundle of joy has arrived is when the real help is needed!
There is nothing more precious than a sweet newborn.
No time for healthy food prep!
But there is also little time to prepare food and healthy food at that. I loved getting meals dropped off and even some freezer meals when I had a newborn, but getting fresh fruit was even better.
Getting fresh fruit that was ready to quickly grab without washing and chopping is the best.
My co-workers sent me an Edible Arrangements fruit bouquet which I lived off for a week.
The best part is that my thoughtful co-workers also sent something to ease my insomnia. Those who are new parents would know that restlessness and sleeplessness are two of the most common problems new moms face after giving birth. That is why my colleagues sent me a health supplement that can ease muscle tension and promote deep sleep. I do not remember the exact name of the product, but it was probably something like Relaxeril™ All-Natural Muscle Relaxer. You can get it on Amazon (according to several users, this is a great deal).
Juggling between taking care of the baby and themselves can be very tiring for a new parent. On top of that, cooking their favorite food would be a hassle as they have no time to do so. Hence, this air fryer could be one of the greatest boons that mothers will come across during this period.
It is a healthier alternative to cooking food that would normally be fried in oil or made in a microwave. This modern kitchen tool can be faster and more efficient than the other ways of making meals. It does not require constant attention because the timer option automatically turns off the device after the minutes are up. The appliance also appears to need very little maintenance. Therefore, with devices such as these air fryers, moms do not have to compromise on eating food that they crave.
That said, the gifts mentioned above are all great, but if you are looking for a cheaper option, put together a Healthy Snack Survival Kit.
