Must Haves after birth?

What did you use or want for after the baby to care for yourself? Any good kits to buy with everything?

*Many peri cold packs ~ my MW only recommended 4 disposable. I want to have 6 pp reusable pads with ice packs.

*Bath herbs for healing

*Belly band to tighten things up faster

*Nipple cream- for sore and chaffing

*Lots of easy snacks


So what about you mamas?

Lanolin, comfy clothes, lots of water, good snacky food (like fruit - I always crave fruit postpartum), some chocolate, lots of friends and family, and sleep.

- gigantic water bottle
- many light weight pj sets - I sweated like crazy and had to get up to change my pj's in the middle of the night for weeks.

-black underwear. After a while i couldn't tolerate pads (didn't know about mama cloth)and the lochia had just about stopped. So I just bought a bunch of black undies and wore them instead of pads or liners.

Definitely a HUGE WATER BOTTLE (like everyone else has said). Treat yourself to a fancy one that you will carry around.

Handheld, high-calorie snacks.

Make the hubby make your lunch when he makes his and put it in the fridge. We made sandwiches cut in four!
