3 Things I Did After Bringing Home My Newborn Baby
There are so many things to think about when you are getting ready to welcome your new baby into the world, it is hard to prepare for everything. From my lived experiences, there are a few things that I wish someone told me to prepare for.
Here are 3 Things I Did After Bringing Home My Newborn Baby
1. Set up a postpartum shelf on wheels with all my healing needs- most are provided by the hospital. Having everything on deck and reachable when needed, especially during exhausting times, is very helpful.
2. If breastfeeding, the first thing I did is contact a lactation consultant. Every breastfeeding journey is different with each baby and sometimes can be too daunting with do’s and don’t. This gave me direction and a game plan to follow.
3. Take really good care of my nipples and have prepped meals- healthy meals that I froze prior and coconut oil for nipples and nipple shield cups were everything while my skin got used to feeding.
