Postpartum Favorites

Two weeks ago I wrote a post (here!) on my top 10 essential postpartum items for the first 10 days. Now that I’m a little bit out of the trenches I wanted to expand on that post and update some favorites I’ve been using since Caden was born.

These first couple weeks of postpartum/”4th trimester” can be hard…hormones are all over the place, your body is adjusting to just giving birth, all while trying to take care of a newborn (and toddler in my case!). These items are what really helped me recover and feel my best. Also, I’m sharing my perspective from a c-section experience so keep that in mind 🙂

This first collage is is from my top 10 and then one below that are additional items that have been helpful for me!

1. Belly Band – trying to wear it as often as I can!
2. My breast friend nursing pillow – this has been a game changer for my back…the best support! 3. Huckleberry App – so great for tracking all things (feedings, diaper, etc)
4. Haakaa – love that I’ve been able to start building a stash without pumping!
5. Bassinet– we have this in our living room for daytime naps, it’s been great! Also perfect for travel!
6. Nursing Bras – these have been soo comfy
7. High waisted Undies – these have been great on my c-section incision
