What do do for friend with baby blues?

Hi ladies,

Popping over from the GP board for a question.  A friend of mine lives far away and had her 2nd DD 10 weeks ago.  She is suffering from the baby blues (her midwife said if it lasts 2 more weeks it will be considered postpartum depression, so I think she's feeling pretty bad).   I want to send her a little care package in the mail.   What kinds of things would you recommend? 

 Thanks!

Re: What do do for friend with baby blues?

  • I haven't had the baby blues, but I have had an infant. I think maybe a gift card to a restaurant that delivers would be nice. Or maybe some new lounge wear, comfy yoga pants or pjs. The first 2 weeks we had mostly microwave meals and I didn't wear anything but sweats.

    You're sweet to think to send her something. Packages always put smile on your face!

  • I just saw a super cute pair of PJ pants at Target... great idea! Thanks :)
