Everyone is always so focused on the baby when you're pregnant, and when it comes to baby shower gifts. But the mom to be is often overlooked, so I've complied a list of things new moms need for themselves. These items would make a great inclusion to your shower gift, or for you to bring mom after the baby is born, as a congratulatory gift.
3 things new moms need for themselves
Any new mom can tell you how sore and tender your breasts can get, so the following item is a must, and may just save you some pain.

They can be used hot, or cold, and are available in a variety of different patterns. Cost: $25
Another must-have for those tender bookies, bamboobies Organic Lanolin-Free Nursing Balm Nipple Cream helps provide relief to painful, cracked nipples caused by breastfeeding. Cost: $12.99
Nursing pads are a must even for moms who won't be breastfeeding. I'll save you the visual, but just know that Lansinoh Stay Dry Disposable Nursing Pads will help the new mom's shirt to stay dry, big time! Cost: $17.75
