The one sure thing about your baby’s arrival? It’s going to happen during a season! No matter your location or when your little one arrives, you’ll want to be seasonally prepared with the best products for motherhood success! Here is a list of some of our favorites by season:
Winter: When the outdoors send you back indoors to your Netflix subscription
- Winter means you never have to get out of flannel pants, right? Okay, maybe not, but we can pretend in the first weeks following delivery and the cold nights following with some comfy nursing-friendly PJs. If you’re breastfeeding while lying down, look for a pajama top that has a wide neck or buttons for easy access. As for bottoms, think wide belly bands and soft, soft, soft. Your coziness post partum is huge for comfort for you as well as your little one, so don’t be afraid to splurge on a pair or two. You deserve it!
We can’t say it enough - our boob♥ease 100% Organic Nipple Balm is your winter lifesaver. With no lanolin and certified organic ingredients, you can trust that this versatile wonder-product will be safe for both dry nipples and for baby’s ingestion if applied before a breastfeeding sesh. Other uses for this product? We’ve heard of using on minor cuts, scrapes, and burns; other patches of dry skin; as a lip balm; and to soothe chafing. Nipple Balm seriously rules!
- Whether you’re pushing a stroller, carrying a car seat, or playing in the snow with your little one, your hands are going to need some cover. Beyond using that Nipple Balm for chapped hands (try it, we swear!), investing in a durable, warm pair of gloves will be your saving grace this winter and winters to follow. Go for waterproof if you live in an area with lots of snow or rain, or opt for a fuzzy sweater-like pair if you are mostly condensation-free. Either way, give your hands a hug as you lug around all that comes with baby (beyond baby themselves!)
