<div>Hi all!</div>
<div> </div>
<div>I'm putting together a post-partum gift package for my SIL and need some ideas.  She lives many states away so I can't send her perishables or prepared food. I also think I'll be giving it to her at her baby shower a month or so before her due date, so things that don't need to be used immediately are a necessity.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>Here's what's in it so far:</div>
<div> </div>
<div>-Earth Mama Angel Baby New Mama spray</div>
<div>-post-partum pads </div>
<div>-nursing pads</div>
<div>-lanolin cream</div>
<div> </div>
<div>What else???</div>

A few thoughts-<br><br>
-granola bars, trail mix, dried fruit, etc. Non-perishables she can eat with one hand.<br>
-a good audio book. These made me feel like I was still doing something intellectual while nursing and rocking a little one<br>
-A bottle of Rescue Remedy<br>
-Nursing/mama's milk tea<br>
-a big water bottle with a straw for the incredible thirst that happens with early breastfeeding<br><br><br>
