Welcoming a new baby into your home causes a major change in focus. It's important during those first few months (and for the next 20 years) that you remember to take care of yourself.

Before baby's arrival buy a quality nursing bra, breast pads, nipple butter and some comfortable nursing wear and pajamas. Motherlove Herbal company makes a fantastic line of products for pregnant and nursing mothers. Their nipple cream is a favorite and can be purchased at Sprout in Brattleboro, VT. Sprout also carries Boob nursing wear, nursing bras by Bravado!, Medela, Anita, Fancee Free & Melinda G as well as washable breast pads in cotton and wool or disposable breast pads.

Many massage therapists offer post-partum focused massage therapy that can help you start feeling like yourself again. Just imagine how much better you can care for your family if you're relaxed and comfortable while doing it!
