I am sharing some of the items the Babies After 35 community is currently loving! I’ve rounded up some of our favorite items for those who are expecting and those in the early postpartum phase. I’ve also pulled together some of our top recommendations for hospital bag packing. Preparing for a baby is a big task! Use this as a resource to help you check some things off of your to-buy list!

Recommendations for those expecting

When you are expecting, a key part of your daily routine should be taking a prenatal vitamin to support a healthy pregnancy. In addition, don’t forget about making yourself feel more comfortable with comfy shirts that fit your growing belly, a wedge pillow to help prop your body when lying down, and ginger drops to aid in soothing nausea!

Hospital bag recommendation

Packing a hospital bag is an important step in preparing for the arrival of a baby. Bring some comforts of home to help you feel more comfortable, like fluffy slippers and an extra soft blanket. A stainless steel tumbler can help you hydrate after delivery.

Products for those first couple of weeks postpartum

You’ve gathered all of the items to welcome your newborn home--remember to get ready for yourself, too! You will want to have supplies on hand to help you recover in the postpartum phase such as Tucks pads to ease swelling and pain after a vaginal delivery and items to ease bowel movement which can sometimes be difficult after delivering a baby. Gather some grab-and-go snack items like Clif bars to make sure you have something quick and easy to eat.
