My ethical hospital bag
Well hello there!
I’m writing this blog as a mom of a 10 week old. I know, I know, I owe you a birth blog post and it’s definitely coming. Just bear with me.
Lets start here first: The third and fourth trimester. Yes, there is such a thing. The fourth trimester is the first 12 weeks after giving birth. It’s the time where your body is forming back to its original shape, where you mentally get used to being a new parent and where you spend as much time as you can with your little baby.
Because I chose to exclusively breastfeed, it was important to me to own a few comfortable and easy accessible pieces to feed my baby in. Clothes that aren’t only easy to feed in, but are also free of nasty chemicals and are ethically produced. That’s when I stumbled upon Francis and Henry.
^ This was my hospital bag. I made sure to pack a nightie that what easy to breastfeed in and would be easy to put on and take off, especially post-surgery (yep, I had a c-section). This nightie was perfect because it was really soft, stretchy and had the perfect length. As you can see in the image below, I popped it one right after surgery. I even dress it up now with a pair of jeans and just rock it as a long t-shirt, haha. It’s just so comfy!
Aside from their nighties and robes (which are absolutely heavenly as well by the way), they offer beautiful muslin cloths as well (which I used as a swaddle in the image below). Their cloths are again, incredibly soft, even the softest cloths that I have in my collection now. Their robes and muslin cloths are part of their bundles, mine was this bundle and I loved it. But I must say: You’d make any mama (to be) really happy with any of their bundles. I highly recommend it and can’t wait for one of my friends to get pregnant so I can gift them one of these. :-)
