I'd do up a nice little hamper with some goodies in it that you know she will appreciate during those late nights or quiet moments (ha!) - something like chocolates, good quality tea, trashy magazines, bed socks, dressing gown, nice hand cream etc.

Otherwise a voucher for a massage/haircut would go down well!

I'd be in heaven if someone got me those kind of things! biggrin.gif

That's a great idea.  All that used to be on when I was BFing was the stupid infomercials.

A nice fluffy dressing gown & warm slippers.

Alternatively travel sized beauty products such as shampoo & conditioner for her to take with her to the hospital.

You are a truly nice friend, OP.  Whatever you get her she will definitely appreciate!

I love the idea of a hamper - can I suggest adding an oil burner with a good quality lavender oil for burning.  Apparently it helps people to sleep and is recommended to help newborns to sleep also.

Have fun shopping original.gif

Heaps of good ideas here!  My favourite gift was a voucher for underwear :-)

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
