Most of the recurring messages in my DMs lately have been about postpartum, so I know a lot of mama’s are going through it too, or are about to be. From what SPANX I’m loving to my postpartum beauty faves (aka things that are quick and efficient) to what I’m wearing, I’m happy to share what’s been working for me.
And honestly, I keep it pretty simple. Obviuosly there’s not a lot of time for yourself during postpartum, so I try to savor those moments with things that make me feel good quickly – from a little heating pad masage to cool eye pads that wake me up…and sorta kinda take away the dark circles under my eyes, to easy summer makeup products (full tutorial here).
I’ve already shared the clothes I’m living in postpartum, though I did add a couple more recent purchases, and you’ll find everything else I’m loving during this time below.
Hands-Free Pump (this isn’t fancy but it worked well for me and it’s $24) | Cool Firming Eye Gels | Spanx Shaper Shorts (loved these with C-section recovery and to keep everything supported in the first couple months postpartum; they helped with my confidence too, let’s be honest) | Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm | Dry Shampoo Powder | Neck & Shoulder Heating Pad (my neck was super sore after delivery and during feed sessions, so I used this often) | T-Shirt Dress | Olaplex Styling Creme | Shorts Pajamas Set (also great for errands or walks around the neighborhood) | Facial Roller | Tinted Moisturizer (ON SALE // add a little eye cream and this and I’m good!) | Yeti Tumbler (actually keeps my coffee warm or ice cold, even hours later)
