Beauty Tips and Products: New Mom Must Haves

I am going into my second month of being a "mom" and I love it. Although getting myself out of bed, getting dressed and brushing my teeth is an everyday struggle, I have learned the power of a list. Before I go on a rant about how amazing and life changing making a list can be for oneself, I want to dedicate this post to my favorite, quick beauty products and tips for new moms. 

Lansinoh Disposable Breast Pads
I had no idea how many breast pads I would go through the first month. I realize that every mom is different but these were a huge life saver for me (and my clothes, and sheets, and anything else I could possible "lactate on")

Traditional Medicinals Organic Mothers Milk Herbal Tea
Once I got pregnant last year I made the switch to tea and haven't switched back. I have always loved tea since I was a little girl, and with this tea I can now make sure my little girl is getting all the milk she can handle. I like this tea made with half water and milk and about 1/2 TB of sugar. 

Gilligan & O'Malley Henley Nursing Cami
This is one of the most comfortable and convenient tanks that I have every worn. Plus, it is very reasonably priced and it has the easy hook on the straps to nurse without any fussing. 
*TIP: When pregnant keep an eye out for nursing camis and shirts that go on sale (although it would be nice to buy some nursing bras in advanced as well, you won't have any idea how big your Ta Ta's may get)

Olay Classic Moisturizing Lotion
Although I don't put makeup on everyday (especially when I don't plan on leaving the house) this face lotion helps me feel awake and put together. It is super lightweight, doesn't make my face feel oily or smelly (which is a plus, don't ya think)! 
*TIP: After I apply the OLAY LOTION, I like to add a little mascara for a simple look. 

What are your beauty products or tips for new moms!
