Home / Shop This is the *one* item you need to bring when visiting a new mom It's funny, it's real and it will most definitely feel that new mom seen. By Motherly Editors January 17, 2020 If you’re visiting a new mama, it’s customary to bring a little something to celebrate. This person just went through a monumental, life-changing event and most people focus on bringing stuff for the new baby, who has no idea what has happened—they just want all the snuggles and food. But we say to go ahead and celebrate mama. You can bring flowers or her favorite dish from that restaurant she loves, a little note with a gift card—it doesn’t have to be expensive or shiny, just something that shows you care about them. If you need ideas, Frida Baby , the brand that creates those super useful tools (looking at you, nose-sucker) has you covered. This Frida balloon was just launched by the company and it’s funny, real and will most definitely make any new mama feel seen. Check it out: It’s a Mom balloon Everyone is likely familiar with the traditional “it’s a boy” or “it’s a girl” balloon that every hospital store sells, but it’s time to celebrate moms with this “it’s a mom” balloon. Sure, it’s funny, but also super real. Also, keep in mind that this ships flat so be prepared with some helium to make it float. $6.99 Buy Now We independently select and share the products we love—and may receive a commission if you choose to buy.
