Inside: Looking for gifts for new moms? You’ll love these heartfelt and practical ideas for gift baskets for new moms.
Do you actually remember those first few days and weeks after your baby was born? A friend of mine once told me “The days are long, but the years are short.” I never knew just how true this was until my son was born.
Oh. My. Goodness. Talk about emotional. The highs and lows we experience as new moms are simply hard to put into words.

Along with a lot of prayer, the one thing that helped me look forward into the future was an abundance of real friendship to walk alongside me.
Friends who brought me sweet new mom gift baskets.
Friends who came over and showed me how to put the baby to sleep.
Sisters who sat beside me as I nursed (and cried).
My mom and mother-in-law who poured encouragement over me constantly.
Side Note: If you’re looking for a more in-depth plan on teaching your baby to sleep well, I highly recommend the book “The Happy Sleeper” by Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright. One of the techniques is called the Sleep Wave, which is the absolute perfect balance between attachment parenting and cry-it-out techniques. This book is a mama-friendly, baby-friendly, science-backed, and practical guide for helping your baby sleep well at night. A friend of mine recommended it to me, and I’m passing on the favor!
