  • poll: Is taking to the candy as stupid idea?

    Yes - it's unhealthy and you should find something healthier

    No - it will be a nice treat

    A fruit arrangement might be nice, hospital food blows, and she will be hungry during recovery and breastfeeding.

    I don’t know if it’s specifically not allowed or anything. I brought heliumballoons weighed down by a bag of jelly beans once and they didn’t last long!

    My Future Sister-In-Law recently had her baby and she made us go out and get her some lipbalm because her lips where so dry she couldn’t even smile. Never thought of it before, but all the exhaustion gets to your skin, too! 

    So maybe a nice lipbalm & handcream?

    I wouldn’t worry about the candy being too unhealthy. Everything is fine in moderation, and she’s probably going to have tons of visitors she can share it with.

    I don’t think I would have wanted candy. especially if someone else just brought her cupcakes

    a nice pair of slippers? cute pajamas?  or something cute for the baby – a newborn toy or a keepsake kind of item…

    honestly you don’t have to bring anything!

    I texted a friend before I went and said “any special cravings?” because with her first she was dying for a donut! lol

    I think it’s a good idea. I brought my sister her favorite Lindor truffles to the hospital. She was very excited to eat them after she had the baby.

    I’m sure she would love the chocolates.  And everyone visiting will too.  : )

    Candy, candy, candy! Good to eat & great to share.

    But PP’s idea of lip balm & body lotion are great too, I can never get enough of that stuff. Even some kinda baby-momma lotion if you have a close relationship & she won’t be offended by a suggestion of help for stretrch marks, lol.

    Or maybe something like Satin Sugar Powder by Cake. It is divine & can be used to freshen up on the body & to soak up excess oil in hair. New moms don’t always have time to pamper themselves or even wash their hair so I can practically guarantee it will be used up quickly! It smells divine too (although not as divine as a newborn.)

    I am an absolute addict of the Satin Sugar, no other “dry shampoo” even comes close, especially nice that they have 2 different shades! They have the refeshing one for both light & dark hues & a new glistening one that’s translucent.

    Good luck, sweet of you to think of your friend. Have a nice snuggle with the baby.

    @oracle:  The see’s cigars are perfect! My sister brought those for me after my son was born and although I didn’t have one in the hospital, once I was home I had one when I was up at 2am with my wide awake newborn and nothing tasted better than that.

    I think any thing you take is nice.  I always through together a mix of candy and salty snacks and some game books/mags  to help pass the time not only for her but other’s that are sitting with her.
