Wondering what must-have products to treat yourself to this holiday season? Or what to buy the incredible new mother in your life? Whether you’re a pregnant or nursing mom– or preparing to be one (!)– then you deserve only the best of the best!
Here are some of my top product recommendations for pregnant and nursing mums:
Maternity & Nursing Bra
Having a bra specially designed for your pregnancy and nursing needs is an absolute game changer! The comfort that comes with having a maternity bra is well worth the investment. You may even want to continue wearing it beyond your nursing days!
I specifically recommend Pact’s nursing bras for pregnant and nursing mums! Made with non-toxic certified organic cotton in Fair Trade Certified factories, Pact’s bras are not only comfortable but sustainable too. Their materials are soft and stretchy making this bra one you won’t want to take off!
Moisturizing your skin during and after pregnancy can be super beneficial! By frequently applying a quality lotion, you can avoid stretch marks, reduce itchiness, and soothe your dry spots. Your skin will thank you!
For a pregnancy-safe and soothing natural body lotion, I recommend Earth Mama’s Belly Butter! Their vegan and cruelty-free products contain no artificial ingredients making them the perfect moisturizer for your dry belly skin.
Pregnancy puts a lot of stress on your body so it’s important to get restful sleep as much as possible. Using a pregnancy pillow while you sleep can immensely ease body aches and pains!
One of the most recommended pillows for pregnancy is the Chicco Boppy Total Body Pillow. With an adjustable velcro feature, this pillow is versatile. It provides total body support to the spine, head, neck, shoulders, and stomach!
Did you know that taking a bath while pregnant can relieve stress and pain in your body? Immersing your body in warm water increases blood flow and oxygen to the muscles, soothing your whole body. So, to elevate your bath experience, try some pregnancy-safe spa products!
This Bath Oil by Neal’s Yard Remedies is the perfect treat for any mum! Their organic certified and cruelty-free ingredients nourish your skin while filling your bathroom with a lavender aroma.
Being a pregnant or nursing mother can be hard! Your body is doing so much for you and your baby so it deserves to be treated with care. Don’t be ashamed to treat yourself to products that make your day-to-day more enjoyable! I hope these recommendations give you product ideas that can make your pregnancy and nursing journey easier.
