10 Maternity + Nursing Must-Haves
Posted on 17 May 2018
While it's tempting to blow your entire budget on new things for your baby, they'll be out of that size 0-3m romper in no time. While you most certainly SHOULD prepare well and splurge a little on your new bundle, don't forget to invest in quality items for your maternity + nursing experience. Here are a few of our must-have items from our friends Figure8Maternity. They have everything you need, but these are just our favorites! ;)
The gorgeous color, flattering waist, and cute off-the-shoulder style make this a winner not just during pregnancy, but after too! Tie the belt above your bump for the cutest look!
Make your hospital room feel as homey as possible during your stay for your labor and delivery in this comfy gown. It provides coverage, comfort, style, and functionality - allowing you to be in whatever position you need while birthing without totally exposing you. A must for your recovery too!
Compression socks start at the ankle and go up the leg to prevent swelling and varicose veins during pregnancy, while simultaneously energizing your legs to alleviate achiness. Yes, please!
Not only is this luxurious belly oil all natural, but it can also be used on your entire body. The oil helps to prevent stretch marks, relieve itchy skin, prevent scarring, and add moisture to the whole body. We can't say "yes" fast enough!
Choosing your skincare during pregnancy can be tricky because you want to be sure all the ingredients are safe for you + baby, but also actually give you nice skin. Mambino Organics is one you can trust to gently exfoliate your pores, nourish your skin, and even out your texture.
This super soft nursing friendly top and PJ pant set is cute, comfy, and perfect for late-night feedings or all day lounging with your baby. This PJ set will be your new favorite way to unwind with your baby. It comes complete with a matching robe (with detached belt) and baby gown (0-3 months.) SO cute!
More Milk Plus is a natural, safe, and effective way to quickly increase milk let down for breastfeeding moms.
Sore nipples are an unwelcome side effect of breastfeeding your little one. This nursing balm can ease the pain - and it's so safe that you don't even have to wash it off before your little one feeds. Soothe your irritated, chapped nipples while still keeping baby safe.
The hours and days following your delivery are pretty uncomfortable. The Pretty Pushers Disposable Underwear are made with a drawstring rather an elastic to soothe your sore body. There's even an inner pocket for an ice pack (because yes, you will need to ice your girly bits.)
Versatile, comfortable, and very stylish, nursing scarves add a bit of fashion to the functionality of a garment to help protect your privacy while nursing. Bebe Au Lait scarves are made from 100% premium cotton jersey so they won't be itchy or rough on yours or your baby's skin. Comes in a variety of patterns, too!
