Treat Your Mama | Newborn Mama Essentials
With Andrea—our fearless leader's—first official mother's day as a Mama coming up, we've got Mama's on our mind. From pregnancy to postpartum baby bliss, Andrea found essentials that pulled double duty. When it comes to balancing business and baby, you can never have enough tools. And while babies need teething toys and baby books, new Mamas deserve a little love too. Especially if it helps with the adjustment to new Mama life. So here are some solid staples for the Mama's in your life— newbies and veterans alike. But first, can we all admire the precious pout on baby Stella?! My ovaries could burst!
Speaking of little miss Stella, back when she was a little bean in the womb, Andrea did her best to keep cozy. With the end of her pregnancy dipping into the chill temps of winter, she lived in her cashmere socks to combat the cold and keep her and her bun in the oven warm. They even went to the hospital to keep her comfortable from labor to postpartum nap.
Then there's the universal convertible scarf/ swaddle blanket/ sun bonnet/ nursing shield/etc. Andrea wore her super soft Raquel Allegra scarf pre-pregnancy, but found a myriad of uses for it post birth. She even swaddled Stella in it for her first journey home from the hospital.
And when it comes to balancing business and baby, Andrea swears by her bandolier phone case. Sometimes you gotta answer emails during feedings, and with a stand out case it's never lost. The crossbody strap and card holders let her manage business and baby wherever the day takes her. No need to worry about throwing on jeans just for the pocket phone holder during that next stroller walk to the post office. Rock those leggings and carry the essentials with ease.
And when it comes to breastfeeding on the go, v-necks and button-ups make feedings a breeze. No need to lift your entire shirt to feed the babe. Now check out Stella's baby model skills in action and remember to treat the Mama's in your life like the rockstars they are!
PSA: Mother's day is just two weeks away! Time to write the lady that gave you life a few words of love and send it in the snail mail. A little gesture goes a long way when it comes to mother dearest.
