When going into Labor & Delivery, there will be so much going on at once, and it may happen when you least expect it. The pain, the excitement, the rush, but one thing you want to make sure you prepare in advance is your hospital bag.
Nursing Gowns & Bras
FridaMom Delivery and Nursing Gown
The FridaMom Delivery and Nursing Gown are easy to snap, tagless, offer Skin-to-Skin Access for Nursing and Full Coverage in The Back, unlike your usual delivery gown provided by the hospital.
3 in 1 Maternity Robe
This 3 in 1 Robe can be used for labor, delivery, nursing, and more. Don’t you just love multifunctionality?
Caramel Cantina Nursing Maternity Sleep Bra
Having a great bra, but having a comfortable and great nursing bra is another. Unlike the other nursing bras we’ve previously recommended, this bra is double-layered, doesn’t have any underwire, and has no padding ensuring maximum comfortability. It comes in a pack of 4.
Bamboobies Women’s Overnight Nursing Pads
You will want something super absorbent so you don’t have leaks showing through your clothes or waking up soaked at night. We asked the Babypalooza Community and the Bamboobies Reusable Nursing Pads was a #1 pick. Washable and leakproof and saves money over disposables.
Boppy Nursing Pillow
Like the Bamboobies Nursing Pads, the following two products were also featured in the Breastfeeding Shopping Show. Most of us are familiar with the Boppy Nursing Pillow, which comes in different styles, is the number 1 baby registry item, and is soft all around, so it is safe for C-sections.
LeachCo Nursing Pillow
This is our top Nursing Pillow pick for moms who had a C-section. Instead of mom bending over or lifting the baby, the pillow can be adjusted to bring the baby into the best position.
In the Labor and Delivery Room
Having a comfortable pair of socks is vital. You want to have non-skid socks readily available to give you that grip once you get out of the bed, but fluffy and fuzzy socks never hurt anybody either, so feel free to toss a pair of those in the bag too.
It’s essential to have a comfortable yet easily accessible shoe for the hospital. Crocs are comfy and easy to slip on without a hand. A shower shoe may come in handy when you want to shower, but that easily be a pair of flip flops or even Crocs slides.
Tumaz Birth Ball
This Birth Ball comes with an ergonomically designed Peri Bottle, a travel bag for the bottle, an extra thick yoga strap, and a pair of anti-slip socks. this set can definitely help you prepare for a smooth delivery while relieving back pain and soreness. It has been proven that birth ball exercise and stretching with a yoga strap are extremely effective.
After giving birth to your baby, you must make sure you’re prepared for the next steps. There are a few essentials you’ll need to ensure your comfortability as you begin to heal and embrace motherhood.
FridaMom Essentials Kit
The FridaMom Postpartum Recovery Essentials Kit includes Disposable Underwear, Ice Maxi Absorbency Pads, Cooling Witch Hazel Medicated Pad Liners, Perineal Medicated Healing Foam, and an Upside Down Peri Bottle. Each product delivers pain relief, cooling, or cleansing for mom after labor, perineal tears, stitches, or hemorrhoids.
Lansinoh Soothies Gel Pads
Lansinoh’s Soothies Gel Pads are a disposable option; these soothing nursing pads can be used for up to 72 hours.
Lansinoh TheraPearl Breast Therapy Pack
If you are looking for a reusable option, Lansinoh also has the TheraPearl Breast Therapy Pack. They can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer to relieve engorgement, swelling, pain, and common challenges during the early days of nursing. They are also microwavable to relieve plugged ducts and mastitis and encourage milk let-down during breastfeeding.
The Belly Bandit
The Belly Bandit Postpartum Belly Wraps help slim and support your belly, waist, and hips post-pregnancy. The belly bands are lightweight, breathable, and comfortable making them easy to wear and clean.
FridaMom Postpartum Lactation Gummies
