I want to put together a wahm gift bag for a first time mama friend of mine ... help!

It's actually my husband's friend, but mine too ...

She's expecting her first baby very soon (due end of July but having preterm labor ... she's 35 weeks this week). She lives maybe 4-5 hours away from us so I'll have to send this wahm-bag by mail.

What I would love is a wahm made bag with wahm goodies inside and a few things for baby. I don't know if she is going to CD or not (I asked but she hasn't replied yet).

Can anyone give me some good suggestions ... perhaps a bag like this is already made up?

I bought a wahm diaper bag, than added bibs, burpcloths, and a baby journal for mom, and some soaps. A tye dyed onsie or the like would be cute too, and a playsilk, lol!.

Yes - that's it! That's what I want to do. Do you have any links for wahm made bags that aren't too pricey?

I found some cute totes in the WAHM wares section, so I will wait for her reply.

Now ... to find some good wahm goodies. I know where I can get a tie dyed onesie.

Hmmm ... how about a custom baby blanket, with an embroidered name or something?

I love the idea for putting things in for dad. So many new mamas get things for themselves and baby, and the poor daddy gets forgotten..

My most luxurious WAHM stuff is the goodies I have from http://www.ignitethesenses.com...the body butters are sooo nice, they'd be a great "pick-me-up" for a new mom (especially one of the coffee ones!).

She loves coffee, I'll have to check that out.

Not sure what I could put in there for the Dad. My FIL would say a sympathy card!

Baby is a girl, BTW.
