It is becoming more popular to include items for birthing parents on the baby registry. I just had my 2nd baby, Sawyer, in August 2021. This time around, I made sure to include items I knew I’d need postpartum since it was my 2nd baby.
It is so important to take care of yourself while you’re taking care of your new baby and the rest of your household too whether it be other children, pets, spouses and just general household duties. As the old saying goes – you can’t pour from an empty cup. If you don’t take care of you and find support with helpful people (and products), it’s hard to take everything’s else on.
These items are based on my experience as a mom who had a vaginal delivery and is breastfeeding. Some or none of these items may prove helpful to you if your delivery and postpartum needs are different than mine.
Manual Breast Pump – I love this so much more than my traditional electric pump
Nursing Maternity Tank Tops – I pretty much live in these tanks when I am nursing. I wear them under my regular shirt or sweatshirt because they are just so much easier than a nursing bra plus my stomach is covered then. Win-win as far as I’m concerned
Peri-Bottle -this comes in handy after a vaginal delivery. I used it for about a week or two postpartum when toilet paper was just not going to happen 🤣, you’ll probably get one at the hospital but if not, here’s one that works well
Adult Diapers – so worth it and way better than the mesh underwear they give you at the hospital
Comfy and loose pants – these are maternity pants but they are great for postpartum as they are nice and loose.
