What is a postpartum kit?
A postpartum kit is a collection of items for the mother after giving birth. These items are typically medical in nature focused on healing the body. These recovery products can include special underwear, pads, ice packs, ointments, and more.
Postpartum Kit Essentials
You might wonder why you would need a special type of underwear for postpartum and this is because you will need something expandable and breathable for early on postpartum. Often you will have a stack of items in your underwear helping with the healing process and catching the blood/other bodily fluids. We recommend reusable mesh underwear since this part of postpartum can last a couple weeks or SEVERAL.
The pads sit in the mesh underwear often having items applied to the top of them like a pain spray or witch hazel pads. The sandwich formula that I used postpartum went like this…
Witch Hazel Pads
It can be really helpful to have NOT JUST ANY OLD ICE PACK…a slim ice pack that you can easily fit between your legs or on the cesarean incision is a must- ice, ice (the location) baby.
Say no to wiping for the immediate future. In order to keep your downstairs clean, you will use a peri bottle (hand-held squirt bottle). The design does matter here- you want it to have an extra long head and upside-down design to help with the bottle have its squirt power. Peri bottles offer soothing relief from UTI, hemorrhoids, yeast infection, and menstrual bleeding. Use it to clean a newborn’s bum, too!
Products for dry/damaged skin:
It’s so secret that hospitals are super dry and often mamas going through labor and delivery the hospital need a high quality chapstick to help keep the cracked lips at bay.
Your body has undergone some huge changes… your ORGANS MOVED for heaven sake! So your skin (in a variety of areas) is going to need some TLC from your post baby bump belly to battle wounds from delivery.
