what to buy?

What do you buy a fourth-time mom who just had an emergency c-section? Or better what do you bring to her in when you visit her in the hospital?

  • You can get her an outfit for the newborn. Or when she gets out you can go to her house and help her out with the baby, or help do some house chores.

  • Maybe some lotions or bubble baths or salts. Something to help her relax. Maybe ask if she needs anything?

  • I would skip the hospital and let her rest. Then I would cook some meals that could be frozen and go visit her at home with the meals you prepared for her and her family. Make arrangements to take her 3 older children for an afternoon so she and the new baby could get some rest. Get some other friends together and at the 2 week period clean her house. That is the best baby gift I recieved after baby #4.

  • Organize meals for her. A friend did this for me when I had my first c-section. She contacted several of our friends and asked everyone to prepare a meal. SHe organized who would deliver when so I didn't have to cook. It was awesome!

  • Best thing to give a mother of 4...time. Take the other 3 children for a day or overnight visit. Take cooked meals to the family. Clean the bathroom, run the vaccum, do her laundry while she is in the hospital so the house is clean when she comes home with the new baby. What better gift for any mother?
