Do you remember those first weeks after giving birth? If you are a first time mommy-to-be, I can tell you that after being given numerous lengthy lists filled with must-haves for baby, it would be amazing to be handed a list of new mom essentials that focus on things that you need for your new body and life.

Like we mentioned in our post, 7 FAB Cosmetics for Pregnant Women— August & September have the highest birth rates out of the whole year, so we know there are plenty of you out there who are expecting and will benefit from our guide!

 New Mom Essentials: Our Favorites!

New Mom Essentials–Our Favorites!

1. Whenever you have a new baby–especially if you are a city Mama–you will most likely be wearing the baby! It makes life so much easier, keeps your wee one close to you, and gives you a little work-out to lose the baby weight–a win/win situation! The cozy joey by Mulier™  is the perfect coat for that and is great because it can be worn during 3 seasons, not just one! My friend Sandra, the creator of this wonderful piece has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money to put this coat into production. If you have plans to wear your baby and want something both fashionable and functional to do it in–please head over to her campaign page and make a donation. There is nothing else like it on the market!

2.  Whoever started the whole “sleep when the baby sleeps” phrase can suck it because it doesn’t usually happen that way! In the [most likely] event that you will be very tired in the first weeks of motherhood, I can honestly say you will need lots of coffee. Coffee Blenders Escape  are great because not only are they easy to pop in your Keurig, the Escape collection promotes stress relief through the use of L-Tea Active, clinically proven to reduce stress with a cup a day.

3. This over the counter product called Healthy Mama Eazzze The Pain! is a great way for a new Mama to get a good night’s rest while your body is so sore. It is gentle on the stomach and works fast so that you will be able to at least attempt sleeping whenever the baby sleeps! These can also be found nationwide at buy buy BABY stores.

4. It is so nice having a cozy nursing gown to wear whenever you go to bed at night that offers easy access! The Lillie Rue Nursing Gown by PatientStyle is wonderful for fashionable new moms!

5. These nutrition products from Arbonne are my new favorites for maintaining and losing weight! The ThermoBooster is a dietary supplement that helps with weight loss, the Full Control powder is easily taken before meals to keep you from over eating, and the Sleep Well Spray offers a great night sleep. Make sure you talk with your doctor before starting any new weight loss program–especially if you are breastfeeding. 

6. Mama Mio products are wonderful for both pregnancy and post-pregnancy! They offer wonderful products for skincare, beauty, and aiding in the prevention of pesky stretch marks! We are giving away their wonderful pregnancy essentials kit and their new PH balanced face wipes.

7. Every mom-to-be covets the experience of wrapping her bundle of joy in an Aden + Anais swaddle–they are just so yummy! They are also great for covering yourself during breastfeeding and cuddles. We are loving the Twinkle Twinkle collection so much that we are giving it away below!

8. One of my favorite vitamin lines comes from HUM NUTRITION and is the most fab of all the vitamins! You can currently purchase them at Sephora and they feature a collection of vitamins curated towards making a woman look and feel beautiful. My favorite is Runway Ready, which focuses on hair, skin and nails & we are giving it away below!

9. One of the ultimate things that a new mom craves is someone to make them a meal and to not have to worry about cooking when they are learning about caring for their new baby! The gift basket from Spoonful of Comfort is delivered right to your door and comes with homemade chicken noodle soup, rolls, cookies, tea, and a beautiful spoon for baby!

The Giveaway

We have partnered with many of the amazing brands listed above and are giving away products 2-8 to one lucky winner ($400 value!) The giveaway will start today and our winner will be chosen on Tuesday September 16th! Good luck!
