Care Package for a New Mom

October 9th, 2014

Just in the same way everyone told me I should be prepared for the gigantic life changes that come with becoming a mom, it seemed that I got even more knowing looks and words of advice about getting ready for what some say is an even bigger transition — having baby number two! We welcomed Greta Scott Ford in to our family just 11 weeks ago, and while things are definitely different and slightly more hectic, it hasn’t been as…well, scary as I thought. Part of that is because Greta is a good sleeper and eater, but also because I feel so much more relaxed this time around. And, I haven’t been afraid to ask for support — enter friends like Camille who show up on my doorstep with delicious dinners, an assortment of my favorite magazines and treats for Baby Greta. So, we teamed up with The Honest Company to share ideas for the ultimate care package to make the mom of a newborn in your life special. Come along as sweet Phoebe helps Camille pack up a gift basket of all her essentials for the new mom, including her recipe for the most delicious chicken tortilla soup.
