It’s no surprise that becoming a parent, especially a mother, can be physically, emotionally and financially exhausting. In my experience as both a mom of 3 girls and a postpartum doula, there are some really fantastic items out there to help ease into this new phase of life. For first-time parents, the choices can be so utterly overwhelming, especially at a big name-brand store. I’m here to share some of my tried and trues, as well as an AMAZING new product that I desperately wish were available when my girls were babies (check out that breast pump!).
