Its amazing how much a woman’s body goes through when pregnant. One of the few things I loved about my body when I got pregnant was my bigger boobs, lol! I am on the small side so I was happy with the HUGE difference in size. I secretly prayed every night that I would get to keep them even after I was done breastfeeding but I guess mother nature had other plans (rolling eyes.) It’s been 14 months since I had my baby and now I am somewhere in between. I will take that over going back to the same or smaller boobs! Yes some women’s boobs do get smaller. Here are some of my favorite items.
The first month post baby is so crucial in getting your stomach back in shape. I wasn’t going to tie my stomach the way some of our mothers did, so in came the BellyBandit. I am proof that it works wonders. It holds it all in. Its not so comfortable on and you have to wear it for almost 12hrs in a day but it was worth it. You just have to use this religiously for the first month and would probably have to order two different sizes.
The thing about the bellybandit is that you can’t wear it under your outfit so in I opted for the T.C shaper also. It helps get your stomach back to its pre-pregnancy form also. Its not your average girdle. It was recommended by a dear friend I am glad I got this.
The best thing you can do for your self after baby is to invest in good quality bras. After I weaned my baby last month I decided to go to Intimacy for a new bra fit. I came out with only one bra lol (everything I saw was over $100!) but I felt sexier nonetheless. I will definitely go back or maybe I will just hit up Nordstrom instead since I know my correct bra size now.
RADOX BATH THERAPY
I feel its important as a new mom to have a few moments alone just to unwind. There is nothing better to loosen up your muscles and help you heal and simply relax than a bath. I believe Radox makes one of the best bath soaks in the market. The smell and the feeling on your body is just beyond anything. You will definitely feel 100% better afterwards. I especially love the nourish bath theraphy with natural Shea butter and a hint of ginger.
I lived in nightgowns and robes after I had my baby because they are so comfortable. They are so easy to put on and a stylish way to dress while indoors.
