It is HOT! We are experiencing some serious heat here in Indy and the humidity is outrageous as well. I went to a baby shower today for a dear friend, and she reminded me of how miserable I was last summer being pregnant in this heat. We both promised each other to not let ourselves get pregnant and have a summer baby again, LOL.
The next item on my postpartum countdown is a must have for when you get home from the hospital. While you are there, they will provide pads, mesh underwear, etc for you during your stay, but it's always good to be prepared for when you get home!
While you're in the hospital, they will give you similar underwear to use, especially when your bleeding is heavy. It's nice to have some of these when you get home in case your bleeding is still heavy. These can be thrown away after use so you don't have to worry about ruining your underwear with excessive bleeding. They aren't the most comfortable thing in the world, but they really come in handy as you're getting through those first few days home from the hospital!
The downside to postpartum is all of these items aren't the most exciting things to buy, but they are definitely a necessity. These items will help make your joyful time with a new baby even better!
