Valentine's Day Ideas For New Mums

Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year – but it can feel anything but when you’re a new mother. Where this special day used to be about last-minute city breaks, luxurious gifts and plenty of quality time for couples, when there’s a new baby around, it can be dominated by sleep-deprivation and nappy changing.

Babies are a beautiful addition to the family, and they can create a sense of deeper love and appreciation between couples – but they’re not always compatible with all-out romance and passion! Nevertheless, all new mums deserve to be thoroughly spoiled on Valentine’s Day – if not in the way they are used to.

Take a look at these wonderful ideas to help make a new mother’s first Valentine’s Day special and memorable.

Hire a nanny 

If you’re not already hiring the services of a nanny, why not try bringing in a qualified babysitter, or drafting in a family member or friend to take care of your little one, it’s important to have some quality time with your partner anyway so why not make time on Valentine’s Day.

Many new mums spend a lot of time at home with their new arrival, so a night out can be just what they need to up the romance factor. Even having just a few hours away from nappies and bottles can provide some essential bonding time for new parents.

Organise a pampering session 

A romantic Valentine’s Day gesture doesn’t necessarily mean getting all dressed up and going out. What better way to show a new mother how much you love her than bringing in professionals to pamper her in her own home? Mobile beauty therapists will often offer special Valentine’s packages, including facials, manicures and pedicures. You could even get a couple’s massage! Best of all, the little one will never be far away.

Fine dine at home 

Many new mothers feel anxious if they’re away from their little one for too long – especially if they are still very young. Why not dine in, so that the new addition is never more than a few metres away?

You could hire in a chef to cook up something of restaurant-quality, or you could cook up a storm in the kitchen together, making your favourite meal from scratch. If you can persuade a friend or family member to look after your little one in another part of the house, you’ll be able to truly relax and enjoy the experience.

A luxurious treat 

In the first few months of a baby’s life, it can feel like their mother’s world is taken over by non-stop feeds, pushchairs, nappy changing and breast pumps – and while no mother would ever complain, it’s normal for them to crave a special treat or a gift that’s more about luxury than practicality. Indulge the new mother with a beautiful leather handbag, a stunning piece of jewellery or a pair of shoes they’re sure to love.

Roses and chocolates never fail when it comes to making a woman feel special and appreciated.
