New Mama Essentials

This post is in partnership with Thanks for supporting brands that make Happily Inspired possible!

I’m still in baby prep mode over here (almost 39 weeks!) and I’m totally taking you along with me! Whether you’re expecting, or know someone who is expecting — these ‘new mama products’ will certainly help with the transition. As a blogger, I’m always on the hunt for essentials that will make a difference in your day to day. I’d love to hear some of your favorites below!


I had a rough start with breastfeeding and relied on products like Mustela nursing comfort balm to help me through those beginning days. It’s a vegan nursing balm made with olive oil, and 100% naturally-derived ingredients so it’s totally breastfeeding safe for babe and mama! The cream soothed my dry skin, and nursed this mama back to health!

Finding the right nursing bra can take some trial and error, but I always recommend Playtex brand. They’re extremely comfortable, supportive and functional for everyday wear. The Cross Over Sleep Bra comes in a 2-pack with a criss-cross opening for ease of nursing. These are my personal favorites (I wear them at night!) The Shaping Foam Underwire bra is my go-to for days out of the house (with extra support) and the clips are designed to make nursing easy anytime and everywhere. I also love the color and fit!


Coffee is life whether you’re a mama or not — am I right? This lactation coffee is new to me, but I need all of the help I can get with supply since I struggled so much with Harlow (had to supplement). It’s the first lactation coffee that contains the herbs Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle to help naturally promote breast milk supply. Plant based, single serve coffee pod and 100% safe for the environment. I’m excited to have these on hand for those early days especially! A great gift idea, too! PS: Available at Target in the baby aisle! Win!


It’s so important to remember to take care of your skin when you’re in the thick of sleepless nights! This Anti-Aging Ampoule Serum targets wrinkles, and visible signs of collagen loss. It leaves skin firmer, more hydrated and radiant. I’m always game for trying new beauty and this one is definitely worth the buy! PS: Use code VICHYBABBLE2020 for 15% off 1/23-2/14!
