After five baby’s and loads of products and lots of mistakes, I feel like I’ve learned a thing or two about what you really need for after baby. Here is a list of my favorite 6 postpartum must haves for mom!! Also, let me know your favorites or any items you can’t live without as I like to ad them to the list!
. 6 POSTPARTUM MUST HAVES .
Lily Padz : I found these amazing Lily Padz with my second child and I will NEVER go back to normal nursing pads! I love that they stay put + actually stick to your skin. Then you don’t have to wear a bra at night. You can also swim in them too. They last me at least 6 months which makes them even more amazing + I think you save money!
Good breast pump : I’ve gone through 3 breast pumps. We borrowed a low-grade one from a friend with my first baby and then bought an old used one (we are talking 10 years old) Medela pump from a client. I finally bit the bullet and bought a brand new Medela pump with my third and have never looked back!!! It is amazing. I wish we would have just bought it the first time around because a great quality pump can make all the difference when pumping and nursing.
Robe/lounge wear : I seriously live in my robe (just ask anyone I know! haha!) Whenever I’m home I swear I’m always in my robe or on of my pajamas/nightgown. It’s just super easy to nurse in and always so comfy, which as you know I’m always all about comfort.
Belly bandit : I swear this helps take my hips back down + helps me get back to my pre-pregnancy size faster than any other product I’ve used. I wish I would have known about it with my first.
Button ups : Wearing buttons up shirts was my go to with nursing Houston. Just the convenience of not fully having to undress was nice. Plus you have easy access, which comes in especially handy when your out and about and need to nurse or pump asap!
Good nursing bra : This is one of my favorite nursing bras. It’s super soft + comfy, has great stretch + support and I love the quick release clasps for easy access. I really need to find another one so if you have any favorites PLEASE let me know!!
