Personal Care, Post-Birth And Beyond

This post is sponsored by Always. All opinions are my own.

I get so many questions about pregnancy and birth since having Honor, so I want to open up about a subject that is not normally voiced on social media. I feel like I’ve grown so much closer to you guys through this experience – we’ve shared many personal moments, and I’ve learned so much about mummyhood from many of your sweet, honest, helpful comments. Today I’m talking to you guys about what happens after having a baby, in the hopes that it will clear up a few questions for new or expecting mums!

None of my friends (myself included) knew you have to wear pads after giving birth, but actually, you do for a few weeks while your body recovers. As I’m sure many of you mums out there know, healing after birth can be a bit uncomfortable. There is some bleeding that continues for several weeks, which I expected, but I didn’t know that you couldn’t wear tampons! Even after you heal, pads are actually a great option to ease back into, or add into your regimen, as your period regulates back. For me, pads (a certain kind in particular, which I will get to in a moment) were much more comfortable and easier to wear during those first few months after Honor’s arrival and I preferred wearing them.

I’m happy to partner with Always Infinity, and talk to you about how pads can help to get your confidence back after birth. These pads are nothing like the old school ones I remember – they’re thin and are made of a lightweight, unique FlexFoam that molds to your body (so you barely feel them). Not only that, but they absorb 10 times their weight in liquid and provide up to 10 hours of protection, which is such a saving grace as a busy, multi-tasking new mum. As a brand new mum, you’re exhausted, your world is turned upside down, and the last thing you need to worry about is period protection – this pad has you covered.

Learning to breastfeed and take care of your baby, getting into a sleep routine, getting your house back in order, and in many cases, dipping back into work, is a lot to take on during those first few weeks. I was getting more and more active as time went by – eventually hitting the gym and of course, going back on date nights with Mackenzie. It was a big relief using Always Infinity, not worrying about leaking, being uncomfortable, or having to change constantly. It’s such a small detail that pays dividends in your wellbeing and confidence, whether you’ve recently given birth, or are just on your time of the month!

A few other problem-solving items that I found essential to my routine? A silk sleep mask, so I could black out any room, any time – and nap the moment Honor did. A rose quartz roller, which brought the glow back to my skin without having to go outside for a time-consuming facial, and thin breast pads, which meant I could wear what I wanted when I was out for work, and not worry about milk leaks.
