Thank you gifts???
 
Is any one planning on taking a small gift for the nurses?? I never did with my other two. I meant to send a thank you note to the maternity dept but then I forgot the names of my nurses. :) I may pack thank you cards this time so I can write them while I'm thinking about it.

Is anyone taking anything for the nurses that help them out?? What are you planning on taking?

I never did with my other two, but now I might look into it

I've heard it is nice to bring a basket of healthy snacks and drinks for them. Or cookies lol.

We are thinking of covering a few meals... like for breakfast get a couple of boxes donuts and bagels then maybe for a dinner get a few boxes of pizza. And coffee ;)

We're bringing a couple boxes of chocolates just in case we're there a couple of days. I figure I'll ask a million questions and use that buzzer like a game show buzzer. Chocolate just makes me feel slightly less guilty

I didn't with my others. I was in my "happy place" with my eyes closed so I wasn't even aware there were people in the room unless I was talked to directly, which was rare.

I hope this next delivery will be low maintenance too, so I won't feel a need to do anything special.

Yes, we leave it depending on the time of day. I had my guy in the eve so the next morning DH brought in Bagels and Coffee from Einsteins.

I have never heard of giving a thank you gift to your nurse(s). Is that a really common thing? I don't want to come off as rude or cheap I'm just honestly curious.

I have never done it and I've only heard others do it on the just mommied boards. I was just curious as to what others were doing.

Most people don't do anything. But the nurses will really like it if you do. For my first, I mailed a thank you card after delivery.
