Here's the Gift Moms Really Want When They Have a Second Child
So your mama friend is having another baby and you're wondering what to get her, since, let's be real, she got a whole lot of crap the first time around. Does she really need another baby monitor or dirty diaper bin? Probably not.
Want to know what she really needs for baby number two (or three or four)? We'll let you in on the secret.
All she wants is sleep.
And here are 9 ways you can help give it to her and be her favorite person on the planet (including her own children).
Buy her a Netflix subscription.
So that when she's up at 3 a.m. after nursing her baby and can't go back to sleep, she can put her subscription to good use and play a documentary that will have her snoozing in minutes.
A day at the spa.
So while she's getting a massage she can actually just be asleep.
Hire a maid service for her.
So when the baby is sleeping, she's not cleaning, she's sleeping.
Offer to babysit.
So when you have her children, she can be sleeping.
Buy her a new blanket or comfortable pajamas.
So that when she finally gets some rest, it's as cozy as can be.
Reserve her a night in a hotel.
So whether you're watching the kids or a sitter is, she can be away from it all, and yep, sleeping.
Get her a case of wine.
To put her blissfully to sleep after a few glorious sips.
Buy her a dictionary.
So that when the baby is sleeping and she can't sleep, she'll fall asleep out of boredom*.
*Or maybe try a sports autobiography or something.
Get everyone out of her house.
In-laws, visitors, her partner, her own children — everyone. Get them out, so she can sleep.
