If the bag is for post-labor: - Make-up remover wipes - Moisturizers & chapstick (Hospitals are so drying) - Something minty like altoids - Candy - Diet Coke, Gatorade - Something chocolate-y (she deserves it!) - Grapes And if you get her the bag before the actual delivery, include these items: - Evian’s water spray/mist - hair ties - a soft, fabric headband (senses are heightened so something that doesn’t pull) - a cotton robe (like this one from the Gap) Shower Ideas, Hospitals Survival Kits, Hospital Survival Kits, Gift Ideas, Mom Survival, Mom Hospitals, New Moms, Mom Stuff, Baby Shower

Baby shower gift in a tub - 15 things new moms really NEED... For the past several baby showers I've been to this is the type of gift I've been giving. Although, I'm not a Mom yet, I try to think of the less fun but necessary items new parents will need but not receive at their shower! Glad someone actually documented!
So much cuter than the commercial ones!!! Yellow and Gray Nursing Cover for New Moms // Nursing poncho-Full Coverage-Poncho-Modern-Privacy-Breastfeeding // Mother's Day Gift
Cute idea.... Late Night Diapers ~ the shower guests were each given a few diapers and some Sharpies and were asked to write a message to the new mom on the front and/or back of the diapers. These diapers are to be reserved for late night changings so the point is to write something funny or encouraging to give her a little pick-me-up in the wee hours of the night!
