This isn’t a list of what you’ll need to be able to sit down without wincing or to help your milk come in…its so much better than that!
When I was pregnant with Gigi the preparation was all about the nursery, putting the Bugaboo together (thank god for YouTube!), washing all the baby clothes…but there was one thing I neglected – ME!
So this time around (we mostly had all the things Blake would need, and we were relying on lovely friends to gift us boys clothes) I made myself a little postpartum goodie bag for when I arrived home from the hospital. I’m so glad I did this, it was such a nice treat!
My goodie bag included;
- Eye masks (Masque Bar)
- Face Mask (Perricone MD)
- Detox Bath Salts (Himalayan Salt)
- Hair Mask (Bleach London)
- Hair Vitamins for new mums (Nanogen)
- Skin Firming Cream (Jergens)
- Postpartum Belt (Tummy Tucker)
- Sleep Spray (Neom)
Since doing it for myself, I have been thinking it would also make a great gift for any new mum, you can put anything you like in a gift bag to help her through those hideous first few weeks!
