Being a new mom is an incredible experience that brings so much joy and love into your life. The excitement and new little member to your family can create a significant shift in your routine which can leave you feeling both physically and mentally tired. Amidst all the new mom duties, you may put your own self-care to the side in order to prioritize the needs of your newborn. However, taking care of yourself is crucial to your physical and mental well-being and also helps you be the best mom you can be! Here are a few key self-care tips for new moms.
1. Prioritize being cozy
The reality is sleep can be difficult to come by with a new baby. If you’re not getting as much sleep as you’d like, you at least deserve to treat yourself to cozy clothes because being comfortable is a top priority. Wrap yourself in soft luxurious material with any of our pjs or loungewear clothes⎯your mind and body will thank you.
2. Create a Support System
Being a new mom can be isolating and tiring, so surround yourself with loved ones who can offer support, comfort, and encouragement. You can also join new mom groups or online communities where you can share your experiences, challenges, and tips with other moms going through the same things you are. It can be really helpful to navigate life as a new mom with other people who understand you. Here at Larken, we are also a community and here to support one another!
3. Make your life easier with clothes that multitask
Your to-do list can often feel daunting and never-ending as a new mom. That’s why we focused on making your life easier by designing clothes that multitask. Treat yourself to comfortable essentials that make your life easier and more efficient, like our Larken X nursing and hands-free pumping bra. We even have a tutorial on how it works! We have more perfect postpartum essentials so you can easily go from nursing and pumping on the go to cuddling your little one on the couch in our signature tank, cozy nightshirt, ultra-soft, and stretchy high-rise briefs, or our high-waisted leggings.
4. Stay Hydrated & Fuel Your Body
A balanced diet is important for new moms to stay healthy and energized. As a new mom, it can be hard to remember to eat healthy as you’re always busy or on the go. To make eating healthy a priority, plan and prepare your meals in advance. Stock up on healthy snacks that you can grab quickly and have a large water bottle that you can keep at your bedside and take with you on the go as well.
We hope these tips help, and congratulations on your new little one! Be sure to check out all our after-baby products.
