Being a mom is serious business and we’re 100% sure you’re being the best mom you can be to your little one (or ones!) — but it can be tiring work! All moms deserve a bit of extra help from time to time, and that’s where our new mom essentials come in. The following five products are perfect for moms-to-be, brand new mamas, and seasoned mums alike!
So whether your pregnancy symptoms are getting you down, or if you’ve got a newborn on your hands and getting no sleep, or if you’re rushed off your feet with all your daily roles and routines, we’ve got you covered. We have exactly what you need for an extra boost to get you feeling like the best and healthiest version of yourself.
If you’re in the brand new mama category you may find these items especially helpful in your first few weeks at home with baby.
1. For your Wellbeing: Essential Oils
It seems that these days everyone is talking about essential oils. Well, there’s a reason! Aromatherapy (inhaling the aroma from the oils via a diffuser) and using essential oils on your body is said to do everything from reducing anxiety, boosting energy levels, preventing headaches, and inducing sleep – that’s just to name a few! There are so many different types of oils and countless options of blends, so you can really make them fit for purpose. Whether you just enjoy the scent, want to use it for physical ailments, or want to get some emotional benefits – you can find ones that are right for you. This introductory set of oils is a great place to start because it comes with a few very popular and versatile oils. You’ll get Lavender (great for relaxation and inducing sleep), Lemon (cleansing, purifying and invigorating properties), and Peppermint (good for immunity and overall healthy functioning).
Note for pregnancy: All of these oils are considered safe for use in pregnancy – however since they are extracted from the natural source they are highly concentrated, so it’s best that you don’t apply directly to your skin. Make sure to use only in a diffuser and add fewer drops than recommended.
If you don’t already have a diffuser, this Victsing Mini Diffuser is perfect!
2. For Fitness: Set of Resistance Bands
Getting out to the gym seem impossible? Don’t worry, we’ve got you sorted! With all the home workouts and fitness inspiration available on our app, you don’t have to hit the gym to get a good workout in! Having a set of resistance bands at home will take your workout to the next level. The bands are small so can be easily stored and will help you to build muscle by adding more force to a bodyweight workout. Be sure to check back next week for an upcoming post on our favorite bodyweight exercises!
3. For your Nutrition: High-Powered Blender
As a busy mom, you hardly have time to make healthy snacks, so finding the time to make healthy meals can sometimes feel impossible. Having a high-powered blender on hand can really make a difference. It allows you to easily whip up nutritional smoothies, dips, or soups in no time at all. We’re a fan of the NutriBullet for its compact size, friendlier price point, and serious whizzing power. Plus it’s super easy to use and even easier to clean. With this in your life, eating healthily will be one less thing to worry about.
4. For your Look: A Wear Everywhere Jumpsuit
You may find that your priorities change after birth, and while you still want to look good when you leave the house, you can’t always be bothered to put together a complete outfit. On those days, a comfortable (yet still stylish!) jumpsuit is a girl’s best friend. This Overall Jumpsuit is a must-have item to add to your pregnancy and post-baby wardrobe. It’s made for maternity but designed to wear well into mamahood. It’s made of soft-touch jersey and machine washable (win-win!), and of course, you can never go wrong when wearing all black.
