7 Pregnancy Products You Need in Your Life
February 3, 2021Moms-to-be, you have a lot of nurturing to look forward to doing over the next several months, so you deserve some self-care and comfort to prepare. That means now is the time to enjoy pregnancy products! From yummy nighttime ice cream to satisfy after-hours cravings to cozy wardrobe pieces and accessories that stretch comfortably over a baby bump, here are seven amazing products you might want to try.
Nightfood Nighttime Ice Cream
As your baby grows inside you, he or she needs plenty of calcium – and ice cream is just the trick! Coincidentally, this could be an explanation for why many expectant mothers crave ice cream. Fortunately, Nightfood’s Nighttime Ice Cream contains calcium and other sleep-friendly nutritional profiles, such as magnesium and zinc, but with less yucky stuff like sugar and fat. It also has fewer calories than most ice creams and is better than taking most other sleep aids because it’s drug-free. And it is the official ice cream of the American Pregnancy Association!
U-shaped Pregnancy Body Pillow
One of the most important duties you have as a mother-to-be is to get your rest. After all, you need enough energy for two! As your body grows, finding that just-right sleeping position can seem elusive. Snuggling with a U-shaped pregnancy body pillow can help provide safe sleeping positions and do wonders to relieve some of the physical discomforts expecting mothers experience while trying to get their zzz’s. The unique design helps support your back, hips, knees, neck, and head for better sleep and fewer aches in the morning.
Stretch marks are a very normal part of pregnancy and can leave skin feeling itchy or uncomfortable. Nourish your baby bump – as well as your breasts, hips, bottoms, thighs, arms, and legs – with a belly butter product. Such products can help keep skin moisturized during pregnancy and aid in skin recovery postpartum. Look for products with safe, hypoallergenic ingredients designed to hydrate and soothe the skin.
From the moment you find out you are going to be a mom, you’ll likely experience a range of emotions from joy to anxiety and everything in between. So you don’t miss a single part of the experience (those nine months will fly by), record every moment in a pregnancy journal. From your first bout of morning sickness to pondering baby names, your journal will give you something to look back on for years to come!
As comfy as they are just about every day, leggings are even better when you are pregnant! Maternity leggings are a wardrobe essential for expecting moms because they can make you feel and look good but aren’t too constricting. Leggings are stretchy enough to fit your body during and after pregnancy. Whether you prefer low rise or high rise, standard black, faux leather, or even jeggings, maternity leggings are made specifically for growing pregnant bodies with support bands and panels, opaque colors, multiple sizes, and of course, comfort.
Belly Buds Pregnancy Headphones
By 24 weeks, your baby’s developing ears can hear sounds, and as the weeks progress, he or she will begin to form memories. Give your baby bump its very own set of headphones to safely enjoy music and listen to personalized messages while in the womb. Belly Buds pregnancy headphones help you and baby bond over stories, songs, and voices.
In love with your cold weather jacket but need a maternity coat to get you through a winter pregnancy? Not to worry, there is a product that converts your existing coat to cover your baby bump, making one less maternity outfit to buy. Jacket extenders zip into your jacket, creating an easy transition from pregnancy to motherhood.
Don’t forget … while you are busy preparing for your baby, take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest, eat healthy (and don’t feel guilty if you try that Nightfood ice cream!), stay hydrated, keep yourself comfortable and safe, and enjoy the experience!
