For those of us that are first time mums, there are some very special firsts. Baby’s first smile, their first steps, their first tooth… But there is another first: Mother’s Day. It’ll be the first time that you have a whole day centred around you and so, whether you acknowledged the day before or not, it is a first that should be celebrated.
Baby obviously isn’t going to be able to buy flowers themselves, so partners, this one is on you!
If you need help celebrating a first time mum this mother’s day, take a look at our suggestions below.
Let them lie in
All new mums want a little more sleep, so on Mother’s Day, why not let them have an extra hour in bed? Plus it gives you and baby a chance to hang out, just the two of you for a little longer. I mean, most people love breakfast in bed, but for many new mums, the chance to doze will be a real treat.
Get them a card
Look, Baby doesn’t have a job yet, so you’ll need to get them a card. The first Mother’s Day card is something that can be treasured for the rest of your lives, so a card can go a long way. It doesn’t need to be flashy or expensive, just make it personal.
Spend some time as a family
Your first national holiday is a good time to start your own traditions, so get together to work out how your future Mother’s Days will pan out. You could make a point of going on a walk or a picnic together, having a duvet day or a special lunch – whatever you decide to do, spend time together as a family to work it out.
Whatever you choose to do and whether you celebrate Mother’s Day or not, we hope you have a lovely weekend and that your family make it a special day for you.
