New Mom Must Haves
Congratulations on becoming a new mom! Bringing your new bundle of joy into this world is so exciting (and exhausting). During this new time of transition, it is important to remember to take care of yourself too. We understand that sleep is of short stature right now so we have created a list of other New Mom Must Haves to make new mom life a little easier and much more comfortable!
New Mom Comfort
Being comfortable as a new mom is extra important. You are taking time to heal and to learn your new baby. If you are in clothes that are pinching or not functional, it can be distressing. If you are breastfeeding too, you want to make sure that you have clothing to accommodate those needs! It is all fine and dandy to live without a shirt on until you have (unexpected) guests arrive. This is the time to embrace the loungewear look and find comfort and relaxation. You have the best excuse in the book for this right now!

New Mom Baby Carriers
A lot of new moms haven’t discovered the joy of babywearing this early in their journey. They are not just for walks! Babywearing promotes closeness and bonding with your baby and also frees up your hands to help you get a little more done or so you can drink and eat without holding the baby in an awkward position. There are both carriers and wraps you can use, and which is going to be best for you is dependent upon you and your baby! You can also use the Mommy Wrap while babywearing! It is designed to wrap around you and the baby, so if it is a little chilly or you would like a little extra support, the Mommy Wrap is perfect. If babywearing isn’t for you, the Mommy Wrap also is a great alternative. It is not designed to be hands-free like the carriers but you are able to spare up a hand and have more freedom and mobility.
New Mom Care
When you transition into the role of new mom, it is easy to put yourself on the backburner. In order for you to be able to play this role fully, you need to take care of yourself! This is the time to call in your support to help you with tasks such as cleaning, cooking, showering, and sleeping. Even if you can borrow someone for 30 minutes, that can give you just enough rest to pull yourself together.
