My cousin is having her 1st child. She's just been put on bedrest (she's 30ish wks) and they don't even know how they are going to pay the bills.
Her baby shower is coming up on the 30th & I'm sending her some things. What are some necessary items that many people overlook when giving gifts? She's going to need as much of that as she can esp since she is no longer going to be able to afford the basic necessities for herself. I was thinking some things I could possibly do- some huge maxi pads (you know you didn't prepare in advance for that 5 week long period afterward!), breast pads, teething stuff, mylicon/gas & fever relief stuff, diapers & wipes (of course!)... What else would she need but not think to get or others not get her?
What is something I can get HER? Maybe a new mom guide/book? She doesn't use pampery stuff (bath wash/lotion/etc). Ideas? She's had such a HORRIBLE pregnancy she deserves something for her
