Gifts for the New Mom (That Aren’t the Baby)

When giving gifts to a new mom, it’s easy to default to getting her gifts for the baby. And while she would likely appreciate more burp cloths and onesies, what she’s really looking for is a way to sneak in some rest, relaxation, and self care between feeding sessions and diaper changes.
