Postpartum Must Haves
By the end of your pregnancy you’ve spent so much time getting everything prepared for your baby you may not have thought about what you need as a new mom to support your postpartum recovery. We put together a list of items you’ll want to have on hand to help provide comfort in your recovery.
Granny panties - they may not be cute but are a must have!
Tucks Cooling Hemorrhoid Pads - to help alleviate pain and itching/burning
Nipple Cream - if you plan to breastfeed this will be a lifesaver. I loved Earth Mama Organic Nipple Butter
Maxi Pads - another must have!
Padscicles - a maxi pad that is cold and soothing to help provide some relief those first couple of days
Comfortable lounge wear - button down top makes breastfeeding so much easier. I love this pajama set from J Crew
Breast Therapy packs - if breastfeeding these can be used hot or cold to provide relief
Nursing bra - you’ll want to find one that is super comfortable and easy to pull up or down
Stool softener - nobody warns you about this but you’ll want it to come out as easily as possible until you are fully healed
Peri Bottle - filled with warm water is really soothing on your lady parts
Caddy filled with nursing / baby supplies so you have everything you need at an arms reach
