Episode 69: New Mom Must-Haves

On the heels of my new mom conversation with Jen Hatzung on Tuesday, I thought I would share a few of my favorite new mom tips and products that really made a difference in my family.

  1. Zipper jammies. Forget all those snaps in the middle of the night. Zippers are a game changer! My favorites for summer and the warmer months are the footless ones from Costco.
  2. Jack Newman’s Nursing Cream… you need to get a prescription for this from your doctor but it makes a huge difference over Lanolin or any other soothing cream.
  3. Spend some one on one time with older siblings before escaping for some quiet nursing/feeding time. They are far less likely to interrupt if their needs are met before you go to tend to baby. I wrote an article about it here.
  4. Do something for you! Make sure you are on your own list and not just giving endlessly to those around you. It can be a five minute face mask or nail painting session, it can be a walk, or reading a good book. You matter… you deserve to feel good… and when you feel good, you are ready to be the best mom you can be!
