Postpartum Care Products and Doula Services: In terms of products, nipple cream or gel packs can provide pain relief when adjusting to breastfeeding, and a sitz bath can relieve pain from childbirth recovery. Postpartum doulas are also a great service that teach newborn parenting skills, help around the house, answer your questions, and just generally assist you in adapting to life as a new parent.
Important Questions! Here are some questions to ask yourself as you check out strollers in the store: Is the handlebar high enough? Take a few strollers for a test push. The most annoying thing when you're out for a walk is pushing a stroller with handles so low that you have to stoop, or so short that you kick the back of the stroller. Look for handles that fit your height and your gait.
