Button down shirts and waistband expanders
The term “maternity wardrobe” can make it sound like you’ve got to buy a completely new closet of bump-friendly clothing. In fact, there are a number of ways to extend the life of your current clothes.
Button down shirts are great because they’re impossible to stretch out, which can accidentally happen with other tops. If you can’t button the shirt, then you know it’s too small! Waistband expanders will give your pants some added room, and let you wear your favorite jeans well into your pregnancy.
Breast milk and formula
Some will say that breastfeeding is more natural. Others will say that formula is more comprehensive. At the end of the day, the most important thing is to ensure that your baby is getting a full diet of nutrients. Whatever you do to make that happen is the right solution.
Breast milk and formula are a fantastic pair, both helping you provide your baby with the nutrition needed to grow.
A great diaper and wipe
A wipe and a diaper go hand in hand – after all, you’ll use a fresh one at every feeding. Use a diaper and a wipe that complement one another. For instance, if you’re worried about drying out your baby’s skin, you’ll need a diaper that breathes and a wipe that’s designed to be gentle, ideally with aloe and vitamin E. It’s two sides of the same equation.
Huggies® Little Snugglers Diapers and Huggies® Natural Care® Wipes are both designed to provide outstanding skin care for your newborn. They’re a great pair, and the perfect addition to your nursery or diaper bag.
A birth plan and a sense of adventure
Even the best made plans can be broken. On the big day, try not to sweat it if things don’t go exactly as you anticipated. Whether there are complications, your partner isn’t with you when labor starts, or you find yourself giving birth trapped in an elevator like a scene from a romantic-comedy, you’re going to do great.
Enjoy the ride! Embrace the adventure! Absolutely have a well thought out birth plan, but prepare yourself mentally to totally throw it out the window if need be.
You and baby
You’re a team, taking part in a grand adventure together. However, sometimes it might feel like you’re doing all the work. You’re eating well, managing your stress, and making a home while your teammate is mostly lying there, creating heartburn and kicking your bladder.
But Baby is there for you in their own way. Baby is preparing to love you unconditionally, and bring you a kind of joy that nothing else can. They are helping you make unforgettable memories, and listening with open ears to anything you have to say. They’re a confidant, a part of you, and your perfect little pal.
