Mommy Mondaze :: Postpartum Favorites

Chapter 2:

Here is what saved my a$$ (sometimes quite literally) during postpartum:
Left Side:
Soft as Butter Labor & Delivery Gown in Leopard from Milk & Baby- wore this in the hospital after birth and it was great at home too, comfortable with access for breastfeeding
Secret Treasures Sleep Top & Shorts from Walmart- these are perfect for throwing on when company is coming over so you look put together and are still comfortable. Loose enough to breastfeed in too!

Omron 5 Series Wireless Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor- this was given me to by the hospital after I had a slight blood pressure increase at the end of my pregnancy and they wanted to keep monitoring after. I found this easy to use and helpful to check in with my body.
Lansinoh Organic Nipple Cream for Breastfeeding- I swear by this stuff, I used it during pregnancy and every time after starting to breastfeed, **knock on wood** my nips have not cracked or hurt since.
Frida Mom Instant Ice Maxi Pad from Target- these things are A GODSEND, I ordered these by the truckload, the ones in the hospital are also good so take as many of those home as you can. These were the only things that made me feel better and gave me some relief
Tucks Medicated Cooling Pads from Target- these were not my favorite but they were useful  
Dermoplast Pain Relief Spray from Target- this provided some relief for the burning I experienced for like 2 weeks after delivery.

Right Side:
Inflatable Vinyl Cushion from CVS- I sat on this on the way home and for like a week at home on the couch and at the dinner table, helped take the pressure off
Sensi-Care Perineal / Skin Cleanser Spray Bottle- this stuff is so helpful because it is not like you can just shower every time you go to the bathroom...
Medline Cleansing Bottle- these were great for the shower, I think if/when I have another baby I will opt for the upside down Peri Bottle like the Frida mom one

A HUGE postpartum (and still to this day) fave 
has been the meal delivery kit Marley & Spoon.

We started doing this towards the end of my pregnancy and it was so nice to not have to think about meals and have recipes ready to be made without having to leave the house.

Everything we have tried has been pretty good if not great.
Especially the tacos (not pictured because usually eaten immediately)
