Bring A Book
One thing many new moms are unprepared for is the amount of downtime one gets. Newborns sleep a lot. Much of that sleeping, however, happens either in Mom’s arms or attached to her breast. So do a new mother a favor and pick her up something lighthearted and fun to read during those quiet moments. A romance novel, a beach read, a mystery, or even a solid sci fi thriller; find out what she’s into, and get something exciting. Better yet, if she’s got an e-reader, consider gifting an electronic version; goodness knows it’s easier to “turn” the pages when reading doesn’t actually require two hands.
