What is a good gift for a new mum?
Or maybe you’re wondering which breastfeeding essentials you need for yourself and the little one you’re expecting. If this is your first time having to think about this, you’re in good hands. Choosing gifts for mothers, whether it’s yourself or someone else, a first pregnancy or third, can be tricky – what do they like? What do they need? Do those two things coincide? Luckily, The Stork Nest have a range of Gift Sets to suit a wide variety of needs and budgets.
An ideal option for a new mum is to browse all our essentials for a successful breastfeeding journey selected by mothers for mums to be. This comprehensive collection contains some of our bestselling breastfeeding products, giving the mother in your life the perfect start on the journey that is breastfeeding. Starting with Haakaa's Colostrum Collectors, giving mum the chance to start saving colostrum even before baby arrives. Alongside the Collectors are the award winning breast pumps by popular brands Medela and Haakaa. Silicone Milk Storage Bags that store all that precious breast milk and Ladybug Milk Collectors that are designed to save let-down and leakage are two of the most popular gifts for new mums!
Finally, to round out a fantastic gift set, a bottle of Koala Eco's Natural Hand & Surface Spray will be super practical and well received!
