Re: What items will I need to take care of myself "down there" after I deliver?

The Bump Expert

You're smart to realize that baby's not the only one who'll have needs after delivery... Here's what you'll need to take care of yourself.

[  ] Ice packs (in case of tearing during birth or swelling after)

[  ] 2-3 week supply of ultra absorbent sanitary pads

[  ] Panty liners

[  ] Hemorrhoid wipes and cream (can become necessary after labor, even if pregnancy was free of problems…sorry)

re: Q: Mom's postpartum supplies?

What great advice! I just had to add one thing. For me, getting off the baby weight was easy. The challenge was getting my hips back to pre-pregnancy size. They widened just enough that my jeans wouldn’t fit. I had been told by friends to wear an ace-bandage around my waist, or a girdle, but nothing was strong enough to move my hips. By some miracle, I stumbled across the HipSlimmer. It is a hip corset, designed specifically for this purpose. I wore it every night for about 3 weeks, and I was fitting back into my normal jeans. I don’t know if my hips ever would have gotten back to their pre-pregnancy measurements if I hadn’t had it. It was seriously one of the best investments I’ve ever made. For all you ladies that just had babies or are pregnant, or are planning on getting pregnant, I definitely recommend it. If you want to check it out, the website is hipslimmer.com I hope this little advice helps someone as much as it helped me!

That first aid anti burn spray in an aerosol. Tucks or other gentle antiseptic wipes, a personal water bottle for squirting water instead of wiping :) (the top is like a liquid dish soap dispenser not a spray gun). Disposable panties not completely necessary, but can be nice. Pads or panty liners are great for soaking and freezing. as already stated.

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Hi there, I would recommend some one time use panties that you can find at smartchoiceswomen.com. Bikini or hipsters, and well let's face it after delivery and having to wear some pretty thick pads those fab disposable panties that they provide you with at the postpartum unit aren't as comfortable. Not like I feel like a superstar after delivery, but I still like to feel pretty normal after such an amazing experience. At this site, I had also purchased some pads for "down there" just in case because no matter how "smooth the delivery move", yep you're bound to need some sort of comfort:). They are called feme pads that you can apply warm or cold and come with covers to change out each time you need! Hope this answer helps:)

JOHANNAVM |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Hi there, might I suggest feme pads from smart choices women.com Also I like their one time use/disposable panties much better than the hospital issued ones that tend to aid in irritation and uncomfortability:)

JOHANNAVM |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

DEPENDS! Yes, as in adult diapers. I wore those the first week after having my first baby and I loved them. They absorbed moisture from the ice-packs in addition to the amazing amount of blood you leak after having baby. I am stocking up for baby 2 now.

Funny, some of these responses sound a good deal like clever advertisements under the guise of coming from a real woman. I don't know about you, but after 8 months of being a sitting duck for marketing, I feel really violated when I see these strategies on what should be a woman to woman discussion only. BUTT OUT!

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

For the person right before me answering with a BUTT OUT! Give me a break, if there are women out there that can give the advice needed for a first time, such as myself, then let it be. I would rather know than not at all. And, as I read, all the comments on here have been woman to woman, so maybe you need to check yourself and learn what a woman to woman conversation is or might be. Maybe you should learn to BUTT OUT when you don't know what you're talking about. As for the other women on here, Thank You for the advice. If needed I will definitely use some of these strategies.

i am a single first time mom, and im having a csection so the ice pack ideas are great but what kind of postpardum things will i need after my csection? as for the disposable underwear, smart, but for me instead of buying new underwear i am using my boyfriends old boxer briefs because they are so comfy and im sure will not irritate my incision. but what else will i need for after surgery?

Azbell31 |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

I second that , kuuipomikala . To Mrs. "Butt Out", I'm on my second pregnancy and found these answers very helpful. There are different things than what i did that might work better! If your not really interested in what is being said then there's no need to be here! As for those who do want to be her... for my first pregnancy, the nurses cut open the side of a pampers diaper and filled it with a plastic bag of ice... that was very helpful, but they told me to only use the ice for the first 24 hours then they had me line a pad with Tucks... and I used that for the next week or so... but I got nervous and never asked when i was supposed to stop doing that? Does anyone know? Is there such thing as "over-Tuck-ing"? Can too much do anything to you down there?

About2bGold |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

I think butt out was right concerning the hipslimmer - the 'advice' was written exactly the same as a testimonial they had on their website - almost word for word. There are many marketers out there who target sites like this to push their products as 'real mothers'. While a lot of this advice I did find helpful it should also be known that everyone on here is not exactly who they say they are and buyers should always beware.

Well, I don't know about the Hip Slimmer thing, but I know that there's stuff like the post-partum belly wraps (Belly Bandit, Taut, surgical compression band, etc.) and the Shrinkx Hips belt, which I'm planning to use. I can't tell you how many women I know (my mom, included) who swear by abdominal binding for post pregnancy "shrinkage." If nothing else, it might help a new mom feel like her guts aren't all loose and jiggly after having the baby...for that reason alone I'm planning to use an abdominal binder and a shrinkx hips belt. I figure I haven't got much to lose if it doesn't work, so we'll see, haha...

With #1 they put ice in a newborn diaper and gave me that. Worked wonders!

MamaValdez |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Some things I used and will be using again in 2 months (or less): Try putting the Tuck's pads in the freezer and placing them on top of the pad...with my first son my recovery nurse showed me that trick and it worked. Also, while in the hospital they had given me a maxi pad with an ice pack built in and it was so much cleaner and easier than having to worry about the mess. I think you can get more from the hospital store or a home health store/ pharmacy. After getting home I then turned to small ice packs (take advantage of the extra ice packs that come in the bottle bags you get for the doctor and hospital.) The water bottle is great for easy clean-ups. They should give you one in the hospital. A diaper disposal system or small scented garbage bags are great for disposing of pads (it will keep your room and house from smelling bloody.) Don't forget the greatest invention in the world...the SITZ BATH. It will help with swelling and make stitches feel sooo much better. That was the first time I every had stitches and I don't know what I would have done without it, especially after a long day.

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

For anyone having a c-section, I've noticed there is never any info for us!! I had one w/my first due to complications and now have to have one for my 2nd. One thing they never tell you is how bad the gas pressure will be, so stock up on gas-x and a heating pad (if you complain enough they will give both to you in the hospital). Make sure you have lots of soft banded elastic pants-may not be stylish but you'll need them for comfort around the incision. It's difficult to get up from sitting, especially while holding your new little one, so make sure you have people lined up to come help. Sleep is hard to get as a new mom, but if you can get a few overnight helpers, it will help you sleep and heal faster/better. Otherwise, just make sure you shower everyday to get all the yucky stuff off (it will take a few days to get it all off)! Hope this helps anyone who has to go through a c-section!

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

I don't usually leave comments, but I thought there are NO NATURAL type answers here! I personally don't like to have a lot of plastic/chemicals in my crotch, especially when I need healing! Here are my suggestions: * Get Natracare or similar brand unbleached/no-plastic pads and soak them in a Post-Partum HERBAL wash such as Earth Mama, Angel Baby or make your own using herbs like Yarrow, Plantain, Witch Hazel, Oats... Then freeze them and wear on top of a cloth pad such as Lunapads or any of the many on Etsy.com or Hyenacart.com (you'll support WHAMS on these sites also)... I recommend ones with wool backing. * Use the same PP herb wash in a Peri Bottle for when you go to the bathroom. * Get a natural hemmorroid cream (again, EMAB makes a great one) * Use a plaintain/comfrey salve for your perineal healing. It's easy to make, but you can also buy it online. * If this is your seond or later child, you'll need something for afterpains. I recommend an 'afterpains' tincture or tea or the herb Motherwort in tincture form. A good source is herblore.com I hope this helps! Any other questions about natural post-partum healing or breastfeeding, you can email me at adventures in crunchy land at g mail dot com and I'll try to help!

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

I definitely have to recommend the "squirt bottle" for rinsing down there instead of wiping. Also Dermaplast (or whatever antibac numbing spray) and lined pads with Tucks. I swore by those my first 2 postpartums, and have stocked up for this one too! Although I am going to try the ice in the diaper too!

txmama03 |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Salt. Add 2 tbs. salt and slightly warm water to the peri or squirt at each bathroom visit. It helps aid the healing process. I healed very fast and what can be cheaper than salt?

LindsayFranklin1 |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

I plan on using the Belly Bandit and Shrinkhips. My doctor said both are great products to use. I guess there is a hormone still releasing in your system before and after pregnancy. So this is the best time to wear them to shrink the hips and reduce uterine swelling.

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

So I am a newbie mom to be and never really thought about after care. I sort of thought the thing about about vaginal birth was your in pain for the moment and then you were done. Im guessing I was wrong and after reading all this I am scared to pieces!!!!! lol

miche82477 |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Honestly, they give you most of these things at the hospital (big thick pads, ice packs, an awesome squirt bottle, etc) and since i had a c-sec, they also gave me one of those hip-hugger type braces to help support the incision. If you have someone to help you after the birth, such as the father, family member, or friend, you can always send them out to get what you need. I guess I'd personally rather do that since I didn't know what I would need or want until after I experienced the first few postpartum days. I really only need to purchase thick pads once I got home. (And often times nurses are willing to get you extra supplies that can tide you over for a few days, as well.)

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

I'm preparing for my third natural delivery heres a few things i found helpful for my first 2: tucks wipes i liked to line a few up on the maxi pad (since you'll be wearing one for a few weeks) and always brand long pads they are thin super absorbant and i found them more comfortable than other brands or the big thick ones from the hospital. something else great to take home is the squirty bottle they give you at the hospital to rinse when the thought of trying to wipe makes you cringe and want to cry. as far as ice packs i didn't use them once i left the hospial but something they gave me to use in the hospital was a rubber glove filled with ice wrapped in a wash cloth and tucked into the disposable panties they gave me. the disposible panties not the fashion statement of the year but hey if my insurance is paying for the stay then i'll take all the stuff i can get from the hospital :) and if you have a messy day you can toss them and not ruin your good undies!

saney24 |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

c-section women.....I am having my 6th one in 5 weeks.....squirt bottle is handy, gas pains will be increased, they will give you warm gingerale or heating pad on your belly....best advice to give you is the quicker you get up and walking.....the less gas pains you will have, but DO NOT over do it....when you take your first shower, let the warm water run over your incision, it makes it easier to remove the bandage which will feel like it is glued to you, to ease pain when moving apply pressure to your incision when getting up or moving about...hope this helps, good luck ladies =)

a bottle of water with a few drops of lavender to squeez on yourself was a godsend to me after my episiotomy because it was too soore to wipe down there, also some witch hazel to sprinkle on your maternity towels, this works even better if you freeze the pads after sprinkling

You can actually cut a slit in the super absorbent pads and fill that compartment with ice. It works out perfectly for moms at the hospital I work at.

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Everything suggested is great: ice packs, tucks pads, sitz bath, dermoplast, etc. But I found out with my first that a doughnut saved my life! I have read that they can actually put more pressure on the episiotomy but I couldn't sit with out one. I got a cheaper on from Walmart and it DID make it worse, but the one I got from a medical supply store was a miracle! I didn't need it with my second (no episiotomy) but my first one was awful! Just something to keep in mind.

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

For C-section mommies, I recommend having a box of Fleet's solution in the house just in case, no one told me how constipated I would feel. I didn't even know what was happening! I guess the pain meds have a way of stopping you up. I talked to another mom who said the same thing to me, no one ever says anything about that. Another thing I found really helpful is def. having those high-leg briefs, I got mine from VS, but I'm sure any kind would do, I wasn't prepared for a c-section the last time and all I had were bikini briefs which I realized the waist band rests right on my c-section line, had to go shopping for some briefs while still wearing the hospital issued net ones! But this time I will be more prepared since I know I'm having a c-section ; )

I'm having my first baby in 7 weeks (omg!) and the info here has been really helpful. I intend to try out lots of these suggestions, even though I'm not looking forward to knowing what Depends feel like. The hip-whatever poster is a jerk, but we are smart and can all see through an obvious ad. Anyway, I see people posting about post-baby gas relief. I had HORRIBLE gas pains throughout my pregnancy and the best and most reliable cure was warm (and strong) lemon water. Just squeeze half a lemon into a small cup of really warm water and in a half hour you will feel great! It was a godsend for me. I hope this helps!

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Hi, I'm expecting #2 & just today I was also trying to remember what worked best for me. I did what the hospital did for me, at home. I used thin pads & soaked them not only in water, but water/witch hazel combo & then froze them. When needed, I used those in lieu of a dry pad, and covered the pad with a thin medical cloth to keep it dry (and most importantly, to avoid ice catching on stitches!!!!) which were actually called absorbent cleaners, but were nice & dry. So,frozen pad in the undies, then the dry cloth, then spray spray spray with medical numbing spray. You will feel much better. We cut the pads in 1/2, more use for just the right areas. For cleaning, just an" Irr"i bottle with warm water plus the baby's wash, just some mild Burt's Bees. Good luck mommies! May you all have healthy & happy babies, an easy delivery, & be as pain free as possible. :)

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

for C-section mom's - My biggest recommendation is some type of stool softener. The pain meds they give you can cause major constipation. I had to send my HB out at 4 AM to get me some suppositories because I was so constipated. Thick pads are good too, but i don't think you bleed as much as those having vaginal births.

Anne_Sween |

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

She is right. I would ASK for them in the hospital. Trust me, you do not want to tear stitches back open when you are trying to have a BM. I take two a day to keep me regular anyway. I also really strongly recommend staying the full 48 hours after delivery. The biggest mess is the first 48 hours. Let someone else clean it up! Your insurance pays for it. I love always infinity pads, they are super thin. I might try the tummy binder thingy this time, but I wonder if it changes things that shoudn't be?

Oh goodie. Postpartum. o_O This is my 4th baby, and I love some of the suggestions here. I would just add: Natracare (or any "pure cotton" pads)--I developed an *awesome* case of pad rash after my second because of the chemicals in Always and Stayfree pads. Kotex worked ok, but my OB told me to go to Whole Foods and get natural ones. EarthMama/AngelBaby "Mama Bottom Balm"--just.... yes. It's a need. In case you're nursing--the hydrogel pads that you can get at Walmart or Target are fantastic and really help soothe those first days when nursing just hurts like a beast. My lactation consultant had me put them in the fridge and they were my link to for a few days. Good luck, Girls!!

For those using pain meds and suffering from constipation, you can also try Miralax versus colace/stool softeners. I am currently taking it while pregnant and will be sure to continue the dosing or increase post birth. It keeps more water in your intestinal tract and is completely safe. Might work a little quicker too. Has been a godsend to keep the constipation at bay and prevent any hemmorrhoids during pregnancy. ( I suffered for many years prior to being pregnant until my colorectal doc gave me this stuff.)

The more you walk around the better for gas, your guts will not fall out. They staple you together pretty well. However, stool softener is a must!

[ x ] Dermoplast, there is two color cans of this magnificent foam. I bought the red can. I think that is the pain reliever one. :) this really helped with all mt symptoms. [ x ] Ice packs I trusted what the hospital told me during my pregnancy. ( hospital will supply you with ice packs) True, they did supply me with all the ice I wanted no matter where I wanted it. But it took the girl so long to bring me a bag of ice. I ended up with water bags. So I recommend going to big lots or Walmart and buying those freezer bags they did an awesome job. [ x ] Pads, not Tampons. PADS!!! The Biggest, Thickest and Longest Pads on planet Earth. I still was changing them every 2 hours from all my bleeding but i am glad I went with the thickest and longest pads. Its really helped when I was feeding I wasn't worried about how full my pad was or if I was leaking. I know some of my friends who were pregnant around the same time said they didnt mess with pads. they went full diaper. Your choice, my boyfriend took a ton of pictures. I wouldn't want a picture snapped of me in a diaper.. blackmail to the fullest...

Q&A: Postpartum supplies for new mom?

Hi ladies, I continued to use what the hospital gave me: peri bottle for rinsing instead of wiping, tucks's pads, dermoplast (blue can) and thick pads. I used Stayfree and Kotex brands. I also used the Equate (Walmart) stool softeners. I would spray the thick pads with the dermoplast and then put 1-2 tuck's pads on top and the tuck's feel very cool to the skin, but freezing them this time around is something I would like to try! The hospital gave me a sitz bath to take home just in case, but I never used it. I couldn't live without the peri bottle, it's a must!
