‘I JUST HAD A BUB’ WARDROBE PIECES THAT MAKE PERFECT SENSE

26 People heart this

By Chief Bargain Hunter Chelsea Thomas

That feeling. Just having had a baby. Overwhelmed. Tired. Not one piece of this stage of life is about you. Nothing fits. Everything’s bulging. You’re generally uncomfortable. I remember trying to squeeze into pants that were way too small but I just thought that if I could get into them, I’d look and feel better. How wrong I was.

You need to have some pieces that allow you time to just be with your baby in comfort. Feeder friendly. Soft, cool fabrics. But remembering that you will also not want to completely lose your style. You already (at this time) have put most of your needs to the side to care and feed your new little bambino.

Couple of things I didn’t know and wish I did:

  • Sequins, sewn on bits or anything beaded on tops doesn’t work when you have a new baby. Trust me, I wore a Sass and Bide top once and Clementine nearly lost an eye….but I looked cool.
  • Dribble marks show up on anything black. Fact.
  • But black is flattering. So get ready to wash. And change. Yourself. A lot.
  • Find a couple of pairs of really comfortable, flattering pants that you can mix and match with tops. If you find a pair that you like, purchase two. You’ll wear them.
  • Purchase some new pjs. Nothing worse than hanging out all day in feral pyjamas. Makes you feel feral.
  • Invest in a cool pair of sneakers. You will live in them. Style here if you’re stuck for ideas.
  • Consider drop crotch pants. Just consider. If you can’t do, it’s ok to purchase some skinny maternity jeans and where them for as long as you like….hellllloooo cups of tea and donuts.

So I have hunted through a good list of labels to provide some great options when you’re in that crazy, exhausted phase of looking after your newborn.

And again, don’t forget you….you feel good, the whole family benefits.
