My sister is having her first baby in October. I unfortunately will be unable to go and help her after the baby is born (we live in different states and I have a one-year-old who requires my full attention!).

Right after the birth, I would love to send her a box of gifts for HER, not the baby. Kind of a "postpartum doula in a box." Please give me some ideas (inexpensive ones would be much appreciated!). What made you really comfortable after your birth, or what do you WISH you had?

So far I have thought of:
nursing nightgown
nursing shirt
nursing bra
breast pads
muffins or other homeade goodies
other snacks

Thanks!!!
Robin
