With the holidays in full swing, you may be searching for the best gift for the nursing mothers in your life. Finding the right gift might be tricky, but there are a few gifts you can give to make sure the recipient feels supported and taken care of (maybe even a little bit pampered)!
Make sure that the mothers in your life are comfy and happy this holiday season, and remember – self-care is not selfish. Feel free to treat yourself!
Nursing covers are the perfect gift for the mom on the go who wants to breastfeed her child in public without feeling exposed. Anxiety can impede milk production so ensuring that the mother is comfortable is key. There are several types of nursing covers that mothers can use depending on their needs
- Nursing shawl
- Nursing poncho
- Nursing scarf
- Nursing apron
A swaddle is a light blanket designed to wrap a baby (like a cute little burrito), which can help calm them and provide added protection compared to loose-fitting sheets. It also keeps your baby nice and cozy.
Nipple cream is designed to prevent dry, cracked, and bleeding nipples during the first few weeks of breastfeeding. It can also be used before pumping to make the process more comfortable. It’s noted that nipple creams with coconut oil, shea butter, and olive oil are all good to use. However, mothers should monitor ingredients in nipple cream to ensure it’s safe for their child to ingest.
MUTHA™ Body Butter
MUTHA™ Body Butter combines shea, cocoa, mango butter, vitamins A and E, fatty acids, and pure seed extracts to create a butter that moisturizes while staying lightweight.
A little tip is to apply it all over your body every time you go into your bathroom. The more your skin is hydrated, the less it is prone to stretch marks.
MUTHA™ Body Oil
MUTHA™ Body Oil is like an IV drip of moisture for your skin. Containing essential vitamins, 100% botanical seed oils, and rosehip, MUTHA™ Body Oil grants you a soft, enviable glow. It’s also hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin.
Just like the MUTHA™ Body Butter, applying every time you go into the bathroom can keep your skin nice and hydrated and can help reduce stretch marks.
