New Moms Need Some Love Too
When we are expecting a baby, we spend ages looking for items for our new baby. After all, they need things like nappies and prams for when they arrive. And it’s easy to forget about ourselves when we are buying items for our new baby. But we are going to go through one of the most traumatic experiences of our life. And our body will need time to recover after the birth of your baby. In fact, you will need some things to help you recover as quickly as possible. Here are some things every mom needs after the birth of their little one.
A nursing pillow
You might be surprised how handy a nursing pillow can be after you have given birth. For one thing, it can be ideal for when you are feeding the baby. After all, your baby can rest on the pillow, and you will be able to feed easier. It’s often recommended if you have gone through a c-section delivery as you might not be as able to move around to feed the baby. But not only is a nursing pillow good for feeding, but it’s also ideal for you to get some sleep. After all, you might be in pain during the first few weeks after giving birth. And you will struggle to get into a comfortable position to get a good night’s rest. Therefore, a pregnancy pillow will help you to get all-important rest. You can read my previous blog for other ways to get a proper night’s sleep.
Feeding your baby can be a challenge for new moms. After all, it can be quite tender and painful when you breastfeed your baby for the first time. And it can take a while to get over the soreness. Therefore, to help ease the pain, you should stock up on nipple cream. It can take away the soreness of breastfeeding your newborn. If you are unsure about which one to get, you can look on blogs like Inner Parents for some help picking out nipple cream which will give you some much-needed relief. And remember to get a good nursing bra to help you as well. Not only will this keep you comfortable, but it can make it easier to breastfeed too.
A glider chair
When you are picking items out for the nursery, you will be concentrating on getting items like the cot and the changing unit for your baby. But you should also be thinking about items which will help make your life easier too. And one of these is a glider chair. For one thing, these can be ideal to help you to rock your baby off to sleep in the night. In fact, you might find your baby drifts off easier when you use one of these. But not only this, but it can be useful for when you are breastfeeding your baby. After all, it ensures you have a comfortable seat while you are feeding. And if you have had a traumatic birth, it will be perfect for the first few weeks!
And remember to get some cozy clothes to wear for the first few weeks of your baby’s life. In fact, you might want to live in your pjs and dressing gown while your body is healing from the birth!
