Best gift for new Mom

I think the best gift I have received... possibly ever... was when my church group gave us a maid right before Hayden was born. It was AMAZING having the house deep cleaned while I just sat on the couch and put my big fat belly on relax mode :) The house was clean when we got back from the hospital and I didn't have to work hard getting it that way in those last few days/weeks.

Whats the best gift you got as a shower gift, or just after having a baby?

    I had the wrap carrier for my son and I loved that!! I never like any other carriers that I tried before nor did my children. But me and my son both enjoyed that one. It stinks hes too big for it now. :(

      My mom took off to help us out every time I gave birth. She took a week off every time to help me while I recovered or with my son she just took my girls for the week so I just had to focus on the baby. Also I think one of the best gifts you can receive are diapers or formula for the baby. Definitely one the most helpful of all the gifts you can receive in the beginning. The less running to the store you have to do the better.
