Spring has sprung—and does anything make you happier? I can’t think of anything better than getting out our cute clothes (I mean, have you seen Hazel in a sunhat?), dusting off our patio furniture,...
The Best Postpartum Clothes I Can’t Live Without Right Now
I knew it might take some time to figure out the best postpartum clothes I like for my own body. And luckily, I can now tell you guys my favorites! I’m sure you guys remember when I was writing about maternity clothes. Well now, it’s already been about two and a half months since I gave birth to baby Hazel! You could say I’ve had a longer recovery than I initially planned for, that’s for sure. I had no idea I’d need surgery a few weeks ago after giving birth, and that increased my recovery time even more. I’m going to explain all that, plus my birth story, later this month – so get excited! I’ve been working on a detailed post to lay it all out.
Anyways, childbirth, and surgery, and pumping breastmilk (or breastfeeding) all require you wear clothes that are comfortable and adaptable to all those situations. No, most women aren’t back in their “skinny” jeans a month later – hate to break it to ya! All our bodies are different and beautiful, and since we all carry babies differently, we all recover from carrying babies differently. But one common thread remains: it’s nice to be wearing something comfy when you don’t feel like you’re back to 100% yet!
So whether you’re about to have a baby of your own, shopping for a loved one, or, like me, still finding things to wear that are comfy in this recovering body, I’m hoping this post is helpful to you. Heck, these all work for parents who are adopting or having a baby through surrogacy, too, because you need comfy clothes to lay around in with your baby!
Today I’m sharing the things I’ve been wearing all the time in these post-childbirth days. And here’s a helpful tip; sometimes the BEST postpartum clothes are not actually designed for postpartum recovery! Sometimes your best friend is a really soft t-shirt!
