Who Should You Buy a Breastfeeding Basket For?

Breastfeeding Gift Baskets are perfect for ANY nursing mother, whether it’s a newborn or a preschool child (or older). However, many care boxes advertised online focus on the mother in the newborn phase. Reason being, it’s a huge adjustment period for a new mother. Also, there are many great breastfeeding products that make life easier for mothers during that first year.

As a breastfeeding mother of a 2.5 year old, I would definitely love to be gifted a breastfeeding basket. Receiving this type of gift signals that you are being supported in your breastfeeding journey and that your wellbeing matters too.

Below I will share the products that would be perfect for both a new born mama as well as a seasoned breastfeeding mama, in case you choose to make your own basket scroll down for unique items you can purchase singularly. Stay Tuned.

At the time of writing this post, I’ve been breastfeeding our son for 2.5 years. I have gone through the newborn / postpartum stage, the baby stage and currently, I am in the toddler stage. It is so true that parenting is the longest – the shortest time! (Go here for more awesome breastfeeding quotes.)

You can say that I have gained some insight on what many mothers will want inside a breastfeeding basket. I can also promise you that ALL mothers will be appreciative in receiving this type of gift. She will love not only the items inside, but also it will make her feel supported in her effort to breastfeed.

Alternatives to Gift Baskets 

gift-box

If you want to gift something special to a breastfeeding mother but don’t think that a gift basket is the way to go, I can share a few alternatives that might make sense for you.

Remember that the goal with any gift is to let the other person know you care. I am a strong believer in that “it’s the thought that counts”. 

Check out these items I’ve received and loved: 

bouquet-of-flowers

Send Flowers: I have family near and far. Flowers is such a great way to tell someone you care. Although flowers won’t help with the act of breastfeeding, it will aid in the mood of the breastfeeding mama! The best thing about flowers are that their are options for any budget.

bose-headphones

Bluetooth Headphones : I know weird, but I tell ALL my breastfeeding mothers- you need bluetooth headphones. That is the only way I can enjoy watching shows and movies on my phone / ipad / TV without waking my baby. Newborn’s sleeps ALOT so I promise you, these bad boys will get a ton of mileage.

Starbucks-Card

Starbucks Gift Card: I have to say that as a tiered mama, I loved that last year so many people gifted me Starbucks gift cards. There are other coffee shops I go too (I love Intelligentsia), but the nice thing about Starbucks is that they are everywhere and offer a large assortment of drinks and food.

The All Year Around Option

I hope you enjoyed this post and got some geat Breastfeeding Gift Basket Ideas. From a breastfeeding mama myself, I’ll tell you that these are great gifts for any time of the year and it’s most definitely the thought that counts!

Breastfeeding is hard and it can be difficult to communicate this with our loved ones. The mental and physical load a mother goes through when their body all of a sudden is no longer theirs (or at least it feels that way) can be quite draining. We all love little suprises so gifting on a regular basis (even small items) is such a nice thing to do. 

What type of gift would make you feel supported in your breastfeeding journey?

  1. Who doesnt love gifts! And who deserves them the most? All wonderful moms rich or poor East and West! And receiving this tupé of gift, does as you so wisely say Stephie, signals to me that I am being supported in my breastfeeding no matter if I stop early on or continues for years to come😍 More gifts like this to newly become moms would most certainly make more moms feeling Proud and accepted for her so important efforts!

    1. Glad you agree. It’s like when the formula companies send samples of formula as care packages to new mothers, as to say/- just in case breastfeeding doesn’t work out….

      they should also receive breastfeeding packages that signal that they can too succeed in breastfeeding.

  2. Thank you for including our Breastfeeding Food Box from Nutritious Gifts!! We fully support breastfeeding/pumping mamas (I’m currently exclusively breastfeeding my 4-month old) and it’s not easy, but we are managing. I’m so happy to curate milk-supporting, healthy and nutritious food products. <3
