Things Worth Having: Post Pregnancy

7/31/2013


There are so many wacky changes going on at our house. TWO kids? It's a whole new party. We're rolling with the punches (and sleep deprivation) as best we can. I found the first few weeks with Mila to be the toughest and it's similar with Phoenix, although he does seem a lot more laid back than Mila was is. Plus, how can one resist newborn snuggles?

I rounded up just a few things that I'm loving lately.

Simple, sweet onesie. They are so soft and easy and you'll probably be making a zillion changes throughout the day, so they are very useful! This was a gift from my friend Nikki, and we love it!

A beautifully scented bar soap. This is for you, mama. Because labor is a pain (and sleep deprivation is no bueno). Sink into a bath to decompress when you can!

Ultra Radiance Spray from Benefit. It's refreshing, it smells good and it's super easy to give yourself a little spritz of freshness every morning.

Every breast-feeding mom needs some sort of cream to soothe nipple tenderness. I love the Bella B brand, and don't be afraid to use it all of the time!

I definitely don't have time for makeup these days, but there's nothing more soothing than a soft lip balm to make you feel whole again. This one is from Maybelline.

I hope you all are doing well...I'll back back to posting regularly again soon! xo

Thanks for sharing. My girlfriend is expecting her first baby so maybe these items would make a great mommy to be gift.
