After birth, your body needs support more than ever.
Breastfeeding can hurt, managing milk supply can be an emotional rollercoaster, your skin changes, your hair may shed, and your mood, energy and brain function all take a hit postpartum thanks to hormonal fluctuations, sleep deprivation and elevated stress. The good news is there are now clean solutions to address each issue at the root, so new moms can feel their best.
Here are five non-toxic products postpartum moms swear by.
A new mom must have. Formulated to help prevent & repair sore, cracked nipples, this dermatologist-tested balm checks every single box and then some. It is free of lanolin (an ingredient used in many nipple creams that is derived from sheep’s wool), parabens, petroleum and phthalates so you know it’s safe for you and baby. It’s preferred by 9/10 moms over leading competitors, and particularly loved for its effectiveness, mild scent & non-sticky texture.
For the not-so-fun & demoralizing postpartum hair loss that happens to around 50% of moms. Most hair growth products on the market contain minoxidil or other harmful ingredients that aren’t considered safe to use while breastfeeding. This serum is tested for breastfeeding safety, dermatologist tested and toxicologist approved as well as free of minoxidil, parabens and phthalates. Check out the results here.
What’s the number one way to make a difference in how you feel postpartum?
Take a postnatal multivitamin and omega-3 daily.
Your mood, energy levels & brain function all take a hit postpartum thanks to hormone fluctuations, sleep deprivation & elevated stress. Replenishing levels of key nutrients that have been depleted while your body works overtime is critical. And if you’re breastfeeding, you’re at an even greater deficit. If you were reaching for your prenatal during postpartum, this is your PSA to switch to a postnatal vitamin. Unlike most vitamin options out there for new moms, this combo is vegan, clean, non-GMO, free of artificial dyes and colorants and it’s 3rd party tested for lead, heavy metals and pesticides. Plus, it includes 300mg omega-3, one of the most important nutrients for a new mom that you often need to buy separately.
Support your milk quality and supply with this organic, nutritious blend (that actually tastes good!). Developed by an expert herbalist, this tea is 100% organic, pesticide-free, purity-tested, gluten-free and toxicologist-approved. We prefer tea over other lactation support options because it promotes hydration which is critical for breastmilk production. Plus, most conventional lactation cookies or bites often contain high amounts of sugar and unnecessary ingredients.
Growing a baby for 9 months and postpartum hormones are the culprit for stretch marks and extra dry skin in the months following birth. But many stretch mark creams on the market contain harmful ingredients like parabens, phthalates, phenoxyethanol, or BHA.
Good news - a double acting, clean ingredient body butter + stretch mark repair cream designed specifically for postpartum moms does exist, and it’s dermatologist-tested and toxicologist approved, so you know it has only the good stuff.
