what a lovely idea. You are one of the good-uns @tastychicken
Such a nice idea!
I second the suggestion of moisturiser and definitely some lip balm - the hospital air dries out skin and lips in no time.
Maybe some puzzle books and a pen to keep her occupied?
So I have been shopping. I got her some nighties as she didn't have any sleep wear. Some undies, a puzzle book, 2 magazines, a packet of vege chips, some rice crackers, some pepitas, homous, bananas, kiwi fruit, apples, carrots (why hospitals don't have veg sticks is beyond me), some pear juice, a tin of baked beans, 2 microwave rice meals, 2 tins of tuna and bean salad, some rice thins, greek yogurt, porridge, some varieties of nice teas, lip balm, moisteriser, moistering body wash, deoderant, toothbrush and tooth paste, facial cleansing toning and moistering wipes, a loufah and a nice pillow case for over the starched yucky hospital ones.
What a lovely idea. I'm sure it will be much appreciated.
I just feel a bit bad that i can't get her more. I was on bed rest for over 2 weeks at hospital before my daughter was born and i know what it is like as i went in with nothing and was just trying to get by.
i also got a few little toys for her son to play with if he gets to come in and visit her.
I am thinking after she has the baby to drop in things like pads and a wheat bag and some more calorie dense snacks. Maybe a soft toy for the baby ect.
Public hospitals are so underfunded and the poor mum's don't even get a bar of soap so to make someones life a bit easier for only a few dollars, it seems worth it. I am one of the lucky people who can do a little bit here and there.
You really a lovely person, its so thoughtful and im sure she will so happy and appreciative. There aren't many people in the world like you
