Community Questions - Postpartum Essentials

"Can you share some postpartum essentials that you found beneficial after having your baby?"

Of course! Here are some of our top essentials that helped to make the postpartum period more comfortable and manageable for us:

  1. Postpartum Pads: You'll need heavy-duty pads for the first few weeks after delivery, especially if you had a vaginal birth. A favourite brand of ours is Cottons for their organic 100% cotton pads, especially for when you are feeling sensitive after delivery.

  2. Perineal spray: A cooling spray can provide relief from soreness and swelling in the perineal area. You can find sprays made specifically for postpartum use and a brand we would recommend is Frida Mom and their Peri Bottle.

  3. Nipple cream: Breastfeeding can be tough on your nipples. Nipple cream can help soothe and heal any soreness or cracking. We would recommend the Lansinoh Nipple Cream.

  4. Breast pads: Leaking breasts are common during the early days after having your baby, whether you are breastfeeding or not!

  5. Back Support: Many women report back ache after pregnancy and we swore by the Percko Lyne Up Vest postpartum to help with posture and improve our back discomfort!

  6. Comfortable clothing: Soft, loose clothing is a must-have for postpartum recovery.

  7. Water bottle: Staying hydrated is important for postpartum recovery and especially if you are breastfeeding. Keep a large water bottle handy, we found one with a straw was the best and made it easier to drink from when feeding - breastfeeding or bottle feeding!

  8. Healthy Snacks: Having healthy snacks on hand was a game changer for us and meant we always had food available to grab especially in the early days when we were sleep deprived and didn't have much time as we adjusted to our new routines! Breastfeeding can make you very hungry too! Having fruit, nut butter and mixed nuts, Nakd Bars (we loved!) to hand was helpful.

  9. Baby carrier or wrap: A carrier or wrap can make it easier to carry your baby around while still having your hands free. The Baby Bjorn Mini is our recommended!

  10. Night light - We used a himalayan salt lamp for those night time feeds which made it more relaxing than putting on the main light and starling yourself, baby and partner when feeding!
