Heading to see a mom and her new baby? Here are a few thing to bring when you visit a new mom.If you’re like me, you don’t have kids, but you have friends who are either pregnant or new moms. And of course, you want to visit them and meet the new baby. Bur you don’t really know what to bring, considering you don’t have a baby of your own.

So I asked my friend — young mom to Alex and future mom to baby-on-board — for a few items. I was surprised to know that her list was a bit different than what I actually would have thought. Good thing I asked. 

To make sure you bring the right things to a new mom, be sure to check out our list below.

What To Bring When You Visit A New Mom

Food.
It’s hard to cook when you’re taking care of a brand new baby. A new mom needs to fuss over him, not fuss over dinner. So bring over a tray of baked ziti or lasagna, something the mom can put in the freezer. Then, on nights when she’s just too tired to put anything, she can take it out of the freezer and heat it up for an easy meal.

Hand sanitizer.
This is more for you than the new mom. When a baby is brand new, a mom is going to be hyper-concerned over clean hands touching the baby. You might think she is being excessive, but you need to respect her. And so,  carry a little hand sanitizer with you to make sure your hands are clean and ready to hold the baby. Then, “accidentally” leave it behind for the next guests.

White onesies.
Babies are dirty. Oh, they’re so sweet and cute and smell like babies, but they also poop and puke and it’s hard to keep up with the amount of laundry that babies create. Of course, a new mom would love to keep her kid in adorable outfits all the time, but, realistically, she’s probably just putting him in a white onesie. So the more mom has, the better.

Diapers.
Babies go through a lot of diapers. So, even if you picked up some for the baby shower, bring a pack along with you when you go to visit. Mom will sure appreciate it.

Speaking of diapers, you can get a print-at-home Luvs coupon for $1 off any one diaper pack. You can use this coupon at any mass, discount, or grocery stores where Luvs Diapers are sold.

Luvs diapers are softer and more absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee, Luvs Ultra Leakguards with NightLock Plus™ provide the high-quality features babies and parents need for less cost than the premium brands. Sounds perfect to bring to new moms.
