Want more real mum questions sent to you?

  • I would include jars of pasta sauces, curry pastes etc to make quick and tasty meals.

  • Lactation Cookies, meatballs/lasanga in metal trays (the heat and then throw ones to save dishes), a nice water bottle, chamomile tea – great idea!

  • Stocked up on oats for cooking for the hamper.

  • Love the suggestions so far – many thanks for the hamper ideas.

  • If you want to bake then a slice with oats in it is great! The oats help with milk production :)

  • I would put lovely items such as pate,crackers,alot of different cheeses,gorgeous chocolates and biscuits,jams and items that are not every day items but just a bit special!

  • This is the first I heard of a food hamper for a new mum. I would start with fresh fruits and veggies, maybe some bread and butter, milk and coffee or tea. A packet of Tim Tams for a treat :)
