The 10 Postpartum Items You Absolutely Need

I had no idea what to expect with my first baby, but with my second, I was ON.THE.BALL. when it came to preparing all of my postpartum items. Since having Jude, I discovered the “mom washer” which was a godsend, and many other fun products, but the tried and true were still on my list like maternity leggings and nursing pads. I’m going to write a whole post on breastfeeding essentials, which include a few of these below plus many other fun products, and there will be a post on newborn essentials too. But…
