Bonjour Baby!: The newborn gift dilemma

by epi on November 17, 2011

Q: If a friend has just had a baby and you go to the hospital to see them and you have already gone to the baby shower and given a gift, do you buy something else to take to the hospital?

A: No, you don’t have to, although you might want to take flowers to the mom, or a little something for the baby. It is not expected when you already have given a gift, but you may if you would like to.

No all you must bring is cooing words about how the baby is the cutest baby ever.

I like to take a small bathroom product – lotion, bath gel, soap etc. Or something to assist with dry and cracked skin, shall we say. Everyone is focused on the new baby, while the mother is feeling like she’s been run over by a truck. A small pampering gift just for her can be very well received, and deserved. Just make sure it’s nothing to do with her appearance :) .
