Motherhood realizations

The question I was asked CONSTANTLY while I was pregnant was “are you nervous”, or “are you scared to be someones MOM?” And my answer was always “no, not really”… Because if you know me, I am a very nonchalant person. I don’t stress over small stuff, and I am pretty good about looking on the bright side of things. With that being said, since having our little girl I’ve had some motherhood realizations that I didn’t think id be having!

The first thing I’ve realized since entering the world of motherhood 6 week ago is… MAMA BEARING is a very real thing. A wild amount of protective I have become is quite a shock. Of course I knew I would want to protect my child once they arrived. But now instead of going to the nearest Target, I will travel an 10 miles to go to the “nicer” Target because who knows what could happen in that parking lot! That’s a small example, but I think you’re catching my drift. Not on my watch!

This realization may sound kind of silly, but for me it’s a big one. I would consider myself an extremely independent person. Traveling out of the country solo, and doing things on my own is something I really enjoy. I know what you’re thinking… You thought you were going to be able to have alone time after having a baby? You fool! (HA HA). Not necessarily. More so in the sense of I can’t just take her with me when I want to go visit a friend out of state. Like hello, my husband may not want me traveling with our girl with out him! That request is extremely understandable if you ask me! So when I was pregnant, I thought it wouldn’t be a big deal, and now… I laugh at myself. 

Now those are very minor new mom realizations but hey, they still count! If you’re going to be a first time mom soon or even just thinking about it. My unsolicited advice is, people have been having children since forever. If they were able to do it hundreds of years ago, with little knowledge or technology then you are more than capable!! We got this Mamas!

Postpartum at home Cooch Kit

The long awaited ultimate postpartum at home cooch kit. After some research, (and by research I mean talking to my mom friends/clients) I have narrowed it down to what seems to be the most important items for US after we give birth!

Fellow mamas have told me over and over again that whatever the hospital provides, you should try and snag more to take home. However, a lot of what they provide isn’t sold in stores or on amazon. Anyways, you should still have a “cooch kit” ready to go in your bathroom for your arrival back home. So lets get to it!

Postpartum at home Cooch kit must haves

  • Frida mom disposable underwear
  • Frida Mom peri bottle (REALLY NEED)
  • Frida Mom cooling ice pads
  • Regular large pads
  • Dermoplast burn and itch spray 
  • Tucks cooling pads
  • Reusable and disposable nursing pads
  • Earth mama nipple butter 


Because these Items aren’t necessarily cheap. One way you can go making your kit is by adding these items to your baby shower registry! The total cost of my “postpartum at home cooch kit” was around $100. Furthermore, I hope this helps you recover quick and a little less painless!
