Sleeping in pregnancy is difficult sometimes and uncomfortable at best. This pillow is designed to help you be more comfortable by propping up your parts. What was so great about it is that it covers your front and back, it never occurred to me to prop my back - it was wonderful. I'll admit, it's so addictive I still use mine. In fact, this product has over 4,000 positive reviews on Amazon.

Push Present

A push present has come to mean a new mother gift given to a mother at the birth of her baby by the father of the baby, husband, partner, etc. Typically a push present is an expensive present to say thank you to the new mother for giving birth to the baby or making it through labor and delivery. Some women expect expensive jewelry, while others are happy with a mother's ring or necklace or even a nice statue depicting a new family.

Ideas for Push Presents

When my mom gave birth to me, granted that's been a few years ago, she could expect a nice bouquet of flowers after the birth of the baby. I certainly never heard of a push present when I had my first baby in the early 1990s. But now there are women who spend their entire pregnancy researching their push present. My favorite was a mom who wanted a dishwasher! Talk about a practical push present.

So here is a list of ideas for push presents:

  • Charm bracelet with charms for each baby (You can easily add on to this after the birth of each child or grandchild.)
  • Gift certificate to a spa - Treat the new mother to a day at the spa, have her get a massage or a facial, or even just to get her nails done.
  • A gift certificate to a baby photographer for newborn photos, which may or may not include the whole family.
  • Dining room table - one mother surveyed said that she asked for a new dining room table because they were having twins and she needed more space for family gatherings. It was an expensive table and felt right for their family.
