The first 6 weeks after childbirth, referred to as ‘postpartum’ period, is a very difficult time for some women, as it is a time hormonal changes occur in their bodies. Therefore, it is important to spend time caring for your body and also your baby during within this period.
Below are 5 things you need during this period:
As you start nursing, avoid wearing tight bras because they will only hurt your breasts. Go for free bras to help you feel more comfortable.
2. Coconut oil:
This is a good anti-fungal and anti-bacterial ointment, great for preventing and helping to treat diaper rash for your baby.
The first few days after having your baby should be a time for rest and recovery, both physically and emotionally. It is a time for you to focus your energy on yourself and getting to know your new baby.
4. Fruits and vegetables;
This will keep your skin glowing and help you recover from the stress gotten during pregnancy.
Always remember to drink enough water daily. Water will keep you hydrated, relaxed and also help as you breastfeed.
