In this blog post, we will discuss a few important tips and products for self-care for new moms, to help you stay happy and healthy during this transformative time.

  • Prioritize Sleep:

Getting enough sleep is essential for new moms, but it can be challenging when you have a newborn. Try to sleep whenever your baby sleeps, even if it is just a quick nap. Consider investing in a comfortable and supportive pillow, such as a pregnancy pillow, to help you sleep more comfortably. Exhaustion is the #1 complaint from new parents.  This new bundle of joy, while incredible is very disruptive to your schedule and sleep.

  • Practice Relaxation Techniques :

Stress and anxiety are common among new moms. Is my baby eating enough? Are they pooping enough? Am I supposed to let them cry it out? Who is making dinner? All of these worries place stress on you and your family.  Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or yoga to reduce stress and promote relaxation. You can also try aromatherapy with essential oils or take a warm bath to help you relax. Practice the 3-2-1 breathing technique which teaches you to calm, recenter and intake more oxygen.  It’s fast and easy and it works!

  • Take Care of Your Skin:

Hormonal changes during pregnancy and after childbirth can affect your skin. Make sure to moisturize your skin regularly to keep it healthy and hydrated. Look for products that are gentle and safe for both you and your babies, such as natural body butter or coconut oil. You may notice hair loss, dry patches, and wrinkles post baby. Don’t fret. You just experienced a miracle pregnancy and your body is recuperating. Nutrients and energy that went to growing your baby caused changes in your own body.  Make sure you’re also taking supplements that will restore your own supply. A high-quality multivitamin is a good start.  Something with Biotin, Vitamin C, and B Complex.

  • Stay Hydrated:

Drinking enough water is crucial for maintaining your health, especially when you are breastfeeding. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and keep a water bottle with you at all times. You can also try adding some fruit or herbs to your water for a refreshing taste. Staying hydrated will prevent fatigue, headaches, dehydration and will help the appearance of your skin, hair and aid in proper organ function. If you need to set a reminder to sip on water throughout the day, use your phone. Drinking lots of water also satiates hunger and prevents stomach pains.

  • Exercise:

Start slow but make sure you’re getting some exercise in. A simple walk around the block or some exercises just using your body weight is great. Physical activity is essential for maintaining your health and well-being. Not only is exercise good for the body, but it releases endorphins that make your mental health better too.  Consult with your doctor about when it is safe to start exercising after childbirth. Start with low-impact exercises such as walking, yoga, or Pilates, and gradually increase your intensity and duration over time.

  • Eat Healthily:

Maintaining a healthy diet is crucial for your health and your baby's health, especially if you are breastfeeding. Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Consider meal prepping to ensure that you have healthy meals and snacks on hand.

  • Connect with Other Moms:

Connecting with other moms can help you feel less isolated and provide emotional support. Join a mommy and me group, attend a breastfeeding support group, or connect with other moms online through social media groups or forums. Socializing with adults is important.  You may feel isolated during those first few months. Just remember, you aren’t alone and there are many others in the same boat. They are trying to understand how to be a parent for the first time.

  • Take Breaks:

Try to slow down. Easier said than done but its important to give yourself more rest than normal. Taking breaks throughout the day can help you recharge and relieve stress. Ask your partner or a family member to watch your baby for a little while so you can take a nap, read a book, or do something that you enjoy.

  • Use These Self-Care Products:

Self-care products can help you relax and take care of yourself during this busy time. With a comprehensive multivitamin designed exclusively for women, you can support your general health, skin, mood, and concentration. Need to just relax? Try our Stress Relieving Zen Drop. They calm anxious thoughts and help you relax without the use of drugs.

Oh, and one last thing, remember that we’re here for you. We know the beauty and struggle of having a baby. It is the most beautiful life experience and also the most life changing.  So, if you have any questions, let us know. You got this mama!
