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 this post is important because it focuses on MAMA and what her needs will be after birth. You put your body through one of the hardest things it’ll ever be put through. Be kind to yourself after giving birth. Rest, enjoy your baby, relax when you can. Let your neighbors bring you meals. Let your husband love on that new bundle so you can take a much needed shower. And don’t EVER put a mirror to your lady bits unless you want to be scarred for life. Kidding! Sort of… So here goes: the 10 postpartum items you absolutely need for postpartum care (in no particular order)! *Please note this post contain affiliate links*
Well, there you have it! These are my top 10 essentials when you’re a postpartum mom. They are seriously the 10 postpartum items you absolutely need. Make sure you have them ready before baby comes. If you end up formula feeding, I still vouch for the maternity leggings (sooo comfy) and the water bottle/snacks for bottle feeding sessions. You won’t regret it! Stay tuned for my must-have items for nursing mamas too!
