Pregnant mother profile

 Here I am pregnant with baby #3.

Are you about to give birth or have recently brought home a new little one?

I have done this 3 times, and with each child I learn something new, or remind myself of things to do in order to make the transition with new baby easier. Through past mistakes and learning experiences, I have compiled a list of helpful information for expectant and new mothers.

Check out the following 5 Things To Include In A New Mother’s Toolkit!

First, pick up plenty of absorbent pads. After a C-Section or Vaginal Delivery you will most likely be bleeding, and it is important to have these available. They will send you home with some from the hospital, but you will need more. Having these already will be one less thing to worry about running out to purchase after baby arrives.

Second, invest in some versatile clothing. Regardless of whether or not you are nursing, you will want to be comfortable. I recommend tanks tops, yoga or exercise pants, and cotton dresses that you can wear while you lounge around with the new baby. Also, don’t put away those maternity clothes too quickly. It might be a while before you are back to your old size, and the maternity pants give great support while your stomach moves back into place.

New Baby

Here is my third little guy. Look at that baby yawn!

Third, have on hand easy to grab snacks. Fresh fruits and vegetables, dried fruits and nuts, yogurt, and granola bars are great for this. When you are busy with baby you might forget to eat, so make sure to keep these readily available to keep your energy up.

Fourth, drink plenty of water. Have either a pitcher or a large reusable water bottle nearby. Keeping yourself hydrated will help if you are nursing, reduce swelling, and will just make you feel better.It has definitely helped me out A LOT.

Finally, have stool softener like DulcoEase® Pink™ in your medicine cabinet. After you consume pain medication, one of the side effects can be constipation.  Take it from my own personal experience that it is not something you want to happen. This occurred with my second child, I waited too long to do anything about it. When I went for my follow-up Doctor’s visit, I was extremely uncomfortable. Needless to say, I did not make the same mistake after the birth of my third child.

DulcoEase Pink Program

My DulcoEase® Pink™  package contained Tips to help with Constipation.

DulcoEase® Pink™ Stool Softener  is a stimulant-free laxative containing the #1 OB/GYN recommended stool softener ingredient*, Docusate sodium. It prevents and relieves constipation by softening dry/ hard stools, making it easier and more comfortable to have a bowel movement. It works with your body by drawing water into the bowel and producing a bowel movement in 12 to 72 hours. *among stool softener ingredients.

Since I am a busy mom and don’t always take care of myself the way I should,  time to time my bowel movements do get out of balance. I don’t want to feel uncomfortable or be distracted from enjoying activities with the kids, so I take stool softeners to get me back into a good routine. Recently I used DulcoEase® Pink™ Stool Softener  and of course I did this after consulting with my son’s pediatrician since I am currently breastfeeding.
