Gifts For New Mummies

So my pregnancy posts didn’t last too long because the new arrival decided to make an early appearance into the world – and what an amazing joy he is!

Two and a half weeks early and I’ve had to have a crash course in being a new mummy. I still had so much preparation to do and even whilst I was in hospital, the cot was being delivered by Peter Jones.

What I’ve really appreciated are the gifts we’ve received. They range from clothing to toys for the little bubba and a particular gift bag, which this post is about and which was ideal in helping me along into my new role as a mother.

This gift bag was from The Kensington Hotel …

The Kensington Hotel present And it included a teddy bear: a baby can never have too many toys!

Teddy BearIt also included a Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Getting Started Kit, which includes nourishing lotion, shampoo & wash, diaper ointment, nursing baby oil and buttermilk soap. With so much to think about, navigating oneself through the baby grooming products can be yet another minefield for a mummy-to-be. So I was very grateful for this starter pack as it has introduced me to a range of baby products I hadn’t had a chance to consider.

I’ve yet to try Burt’s Bees products so please ignore my naivety when I wax lyrical about the richness of these goodies and their delectable honey scent.

Body Suits - Long SleevedSeriously, it has only been several days and the amount of change of clothes a newborn requires is quite amazing. For such a little body, you wonder how it can make so much mess. But they do and body suits make for very very useful presents.

As do body suits with long legs …

Baby Grow Of course, there are other types of presents to consider giving a baby or their mother. But for a new mummy, this gift bag had it all. So thank you The Kensington Hotel for such a considerate present.

    Oh my word, congratulations! What a gorgeous little bundle, and a wonderfully thoughtful gift.

    I was given that Burt’s Bees set after the birth of my daughter, and isn’t the smell wonderful?! xx
