Mama’s Post Baby Wish List
I am one of those people that pretty much always has a little lust list on the go. It’s normally written in notes on my phone, and I just add things to it as and when I swoon over them! For the majority of the past nine months, my brain has been consumed with all things baby related. But as I approach the last few weeks of my pregnancy, I have been thinking more and more about how I am going to feel and what life will be like after our baby boys arrival.
I’ve already made a start on picking up some nursing friendly tops for my post baby wardrobe. As I just know that clothes shopping for myself once he is here will be pretty low on my priority list for a while. Which then got me thinking about some other bits and pieces that I’d love to treat myself to. So today I am sharing ten things that I am currently lusting over for post baby!
I am genuinely looking forward to getting back into exercise after babies arrival. During my first trimester and most of my second I did manage to keep up with my exercise classes twice a week but it eventually they just became too much. As I am having a summer baby this time, I’m hoping to get outside and do lots of walking with the pushchair during those first couple of months. I think a Fit Bit would be a wonderful motivator as it’s perfect for tracking my steps, heart rate and I’d be intrigued to see how many calories I burn too!
I have heard so many great things about the Belly Bandits so I’m planning to give one a go to help my post baby tum return to some sort of normality!
If you have read my previous wish list posts, you’ll know I am forever lusting over a Stanley & Maud piece or three 😉 I’d love to add this necklace to my collection personalised with both of the children’s names on!
During the warmer months I pretty much live in sandals and I am OBSESSED with these gold glitter ones. A bit of sparkle can brighten up even the simplest of outfits, right!?
I have been really loving slogan tees lately. This one would be perfect teamed with ripped jeans and sandals!
When I was breastfeeding Bella, I remember being constantly thirsty and therefore chugging water like there was no tomorrow! So I definitely think this bottle would be put to good use.
Before becoming a Mama I only ever wore trainers for exercise. But these days I seem to wear my white converse or my Joules trainers to absolute death. These pretty pink Gazelles would make a perfect addition to my Mama wardrobe.
I have received so many compliments during my pregnancy about how well I look or that I’m ‘glowing’. Now let me tell you my friends, it is in no way natural sadly. It’s usually thanks to lashings of concealer and a generous swipe of highlighter. I haven’t tried this MAC one before but I’ve heard great things about it. I think I will definitely be adding it to my collection.
I am unfortunately not one of those women that springs back into shape straight after having a baby. I know full well that it’ll be a little while before I am back in my favourite jeans. So I will no doubt be purchasing a pair or two in the next size up to see me through until my pre baby ones fit again!
I imagine that showers with a new born baby and a demanding threenager in tow will have to be a pretty speedy affair. I always think investing in a nice shower gel makes all the difference and helps me feel ever so slightly pampered, even when you’re in a hurry and have to be in and out within three minutes flat 😉
What was on your post baby wish list? I’d love to know!
