I can’t believe my little guy is a week old already!
I didn’t really think about the fact that having a baby over 5 years from my last would mean some different products and options would be out there. I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE things that I didn’t have during my last delivery that made so much difference this time!
Here’s My Top 6 Picks for New Mommies!
Here’s The Breakdown!
6 Must Have Items for New Mommies
After Ease Supplement: Helps naturally manage your afterbirth pains. I had a lot of afterbirth pain with my second baby, so I wanted to try something this time for it. This made SO MUCH difference! I had to use very little pain medication thanks to this.
Soothie Gel Pads: Definitely getting started nursing again after 5 odd years was a little painful! These soothing gel pads are so helpful in between
Lily Pads: Silicon nipple shield helps ensure you don’t leak as well as protecting against rubbing against your clothes. These have been super useful!
Probiotics: I struggled with constipation during the pregnancy and afterwards on all of my births, so I wanted to stay on top of it this time. Thankfully I found a great probiotic with multiple strains that really helped keep things moving for me! Even better, probiotics help keep my immune system healthy during the recovery and I am able to pass some of these onto my baby too, so yay!
Chocolate Greens: We all need good vitamins and minerals, especially during a recovery! I wish I had had a great green superfood blend 5 years ago, these are my go to morning products along with…
Keto Creamer: This creamer is great in coffee, tea, smoothies, and Keto Hot Chocolate! It’s full of healthy fats and collagen to help my skin rebound as well as make sure I’m not getting hungry (without having to pig out).
And at least in my case, my girl are my #7! Having them has really changed this whole process, I’ll be making a full post about it soon 🙂
