comfort kit

Do you have a friend having a baby soon? If so, make her a COMFORT KIT!
Because sometimes people need a little comfort (especially when at the hospital). 
When my friend Kelli was getting ready to have her 1st baby
I thought this would be a fun gift to her and her husband Reed (and Reed definitely enjoyed it!).
Since I've never had a child, I looked to the internet and friends as to what people want, need, 
and forget most during their hospital stay. 

Here's what it included...
Wipes, lip balm, face wipes, hair bands/bobby pins, breath mints. 
I added fun little notes on each item. 
Powerade (I got this idea from Polkadot Prints. She made a cute Labour Kit too!).
I also added Bible verses to encourage Kelli and Reed.
Reading material and more snacks 
(Kelli was loving Orange Cream soda, so I thought orange slices might be good too).
For much needed back-rubs. 
Celebratory package.
Praise the Lord for a happy and healthy baby! 
Packed it all up and delivered it.
Actually I ended up delivering it the night she went into the hospital! 
I love giving people special gifts and this one was a ton of fun to make. 

What else would you include in a comfort kit?!

  1. This is awesome! What an amazing friend you are to have done all of this for the mom-to-be! I love the idea! :)

  2. Such a nice idea, often Mum is forgotten while everyone goes baby mad. Particularity if this is a 2nd baby and Mum already has the baby stuff covered!

  3. That's such a sweet idea...I always love giving a gift to Mom too! I've had fun checking out your blog! I would love to have you come share 'Your Great Idea' at my link party, hosted every weekend. I know my readers would love you! www.oneshetwoshe.com

  4. This is an awsome idea!!! You are very sweet (one can tell by the notes). By the way, I loved your blog!!!
    Regards ;-)
