You those few items that you always carry around in your purse? Well let me tell you – I’ve got a few that I cannot live without these days.
In years past (read: pre-baby) all I needed was my lipbalm, phone & a wallet and I was good to go. These days things have changed and I try to keep myself and baby healthy and happy with these essential items.
I have a lipbalm addiction. Do you? I have lipbalms everywhere – my bag, my nightstand, next to the couch. I lose them constantly so I’m always buying new kinds to try. Right now my favorite is Chapstick’s Total Hydration in Fresh Citrus. It’s orange flavor is refreshing and the balm is very hydrating. It’s fancy too – it has an advanced nourishing formula with argan oil and avocado butter and rosehip oils.
Have I ever mentioned the back pain I had during pregnancy? When I say pain I mean debilitating spasms. Well, turns out I have a bulging disk in my mid back. I’m still going to physical therapy for it and I will most likely never be 100% pain free. And so I always carry Advil with me. Nothing’s stronger, longer lasting or better on your tough aches and pains than Advil, and nothing works on more pains than Advil (among OTC pain relievers).
Speaking of Advil – infant’s Advil is a must. My poor Baby Man is cutting 4 teeth right now (and he already has 4!) and can be very cranky as a result. Infant’s Advil quickly soothes teething pain and fever. I never leave the house without it!
I try to keep ahead of the game and stay healthy. I have no time to get sick so I always carry Emergen-C Immune+ Chewables and Centrum Vitamints with it. Both of these products are chewables – they don’t require a full glass of water to wash them down! Emergen-c provides my daily dose of immune support while my Vitamints are my daily vitamin that have no chalky taste, just cool mint flavor.
All these products can be found in the pharmacy area of your local Walmart.
