Let's face it. Postpartum care is not a popular topic of conversation. Here we're covering all of our must-have postpartum products for breastfeeding and "down there."
Buy postpartum diapers! You’ll probably need 1-2 packs in the beginning and then can graduate to pads. You will need these since you will be bleeding for a good two weeks. Don’t ruin your lingerie. Embrace the diapers!
You may want these on the days where you’re not bleeding as much (usually after 2-3 weeks)
For fast healing, spray this directly on yourself every time you change your diaper for cooling relief.
For faster healing and pain management.
You will need to purchase nursing pads unless you don’t mind leaking on your clothes or are going to stay in your PJs at home 24/7 (to be honest, I did the latter, but I hear these are IMPORTANT.)
Popularized by Molly Sims, Lori Bregman’feature sun chlorella powder and Brewer’s Yeast to help with milk production and energy.
This stuff really works. Helps nourish your body and make you feel a little bit more like your usual energized self.
Hang in there and enlist as much help as you can from friends and family! You really do need a village. You can also find online support groups and google new mom groups in your area.
