Gotta Have It for New Moms

Elizabeth Ries returned from Maternity Leave in September, but while she was out she researched and tested products to make a new mom’s life easier. What she discovered were products that helped getting baby Franklin to sleep faster and a clothing line that makes nursing a breeze. Elizabeth teamed up with TCL reporter Kelli Hanson to bring you Gotta Have It products for the New Momma.

 

1.OLLIE SWADDLE

“I love how this swaddle is easy to use and offers comforting security to my baby without being too tight or warm. The first time I used this swaddle Franklin slept through the night. He has yet to repeat it, but we’ll get there!” – Twin Cities Live host, Elizabeth Ries

2. BUN MATERNITY NURSING CLOTHES 

“I think one of the most important parts of nursing is being comfortable doing it. These nursing tops are brilliantly designed so you have both access and coverage. I nurse in public with no cover when I’m wearing these clothes and never feel overexposed (that being said, I don’t believe women should ever have to worry about ‘covering up’ when feeding baby, do what works for you!). Plus, I refuse to wear anything that isn’t super soft and these picks fit the bill!” – Elizabeth Ries

3. DOCK A TOT

“Two of my girlfriends told me this item was totally worth the splurge and they were right. It’s multipurpose and small – crucial when you live in a small space like we do. Instead of bringing a giant pack and play when we travel, we just bring this and baby will sleep anywhere.” – Elizabeth Ries

4. THE AMAZING BABY SHUSHER

“I don’t know why I didn’t use this thing with my first child. It’s a super simple device that makes a loud, constant ‘shushing’ noise. I turn this puppy on a baby immediately starts to fall asleep. It’s magical for calming crying!” – Elizabeth Ries

5. BLOOMA BARRE CLASS

“Blooma founder Sarah Longacre told me her BYOB (bring your own baby) barre classes are some of her favorite and I tried it out while on maternity leave. While the yoga classes tend to be a little more play based, the barre class was challenging and I actually felt like I got a workout in while Franklin was hanging out! Plus, there are no worries about being late, changing a diaper, or feeding during Blooma’s classes.”- Elizabeth Ries
