MATERNITY NIGHTGOWN HELP WITH SLEEPING COMFORT

MATERNITY NIGHTGOWN HELP WITH SLEEPING COMFORT

Nursing Nightie Nursing PajamaAs you progress in your pregnancy, you may feel the most difficult feat is to get a good night's sleep. Suddenly it's very hard to find a comfortable position to sleep in for any period of time. Once you get past your first trimester you can no longer sleep on your belly and you're not supposed to sleep on your back to assure the baby gets enough oxygen which leaves only side sleeping.

Most doctors recommend that women sleep on their left sides, so after tossing and turning to find the perfect position you only end up on your left side again. Other factors also play into the sleep deprivation saga such as increased pressure on your bladder by the baby which causes you to make frequent bathroom trips during the night. There are other discomforts too such as fluid accumulation in your legs, muscle cramps, and achy hips and joints. Finally, there's the little baby inside of you waking up during the night and getting his nightly exercise by kicking you a little harder each night to keep you awake.

So, what is a mother to be to do to get a good night's rest? Well, aside from trying out a lot of pillows in vain for the ultimate comfort solution and drinking warm milk during the night, there aren't a lot of other choices. One thing you can do is buy some comfortable maternity pajamas so at least your night clothes are not one more irritating hindrance to getting a good night's rest. Here are some recommendations for maternity sleepwear:

When you invest in maternity sleepwear, buy maternity pajamas or maternity nightgowns that can also be worn after you have the baby for nursing. Chances are you will not fit back into your pre-pregnancy pajamas in the weeks following your baby's birth and you will need a little more room in the chest, belly, and hips for a number of months. If you prepare on nursing, do yourself a good deed and buy nursing nightgown. You will find midnight nursing is much easier for both you and your baby when your baby can quickly find its food source and not get lost in non-nursing nightgowns and pajamas. When you are half asleep in the dark it will be much more comfortable for you to nurse your baby in nursing pajamas than struggle with your baby in awkward positions in sleepwear without nursing access while juggling a hungry newborn who is still learning how to get a proper latch.

If you are more of a nightgown person, then take a look at Belabumbum's maternity and nursing nightgown collection. Belabumbum has some super cute styles that you can wear during and after your pregnancy and all come with nursing access. The blue dot and pink dot nursing chemises are soft cotton silhouettes with adjustable straps and have matching cotton dot wrap robes that can be purchased separately.

Indulging in comfortable sleepwear for maternity and nursing is something small you can do for yourself to help you get a good night's sleep when you are pregnant and ease the challenge of nighttime nursing after you have your baby. Small comforts can go a long way to easing your pregnancy discomforts and making life easier for both you and your baby from the start.

C SECTION BELLY BANDS FOR PREGNANCY SUPPORT

C Section Belly Band Belly Stint

 

Belly bands for pregnancy are garments made of elastic materials that conform comfortably to the pregnant woman's ever-expanding tummy. A Belly band itself is a wide, stretchy strip of flexible fabric that loops around a woman's midsection. It gently pushes the belly upward and inward, comfortably creating a supportive form of shapewear for the pregnant woman.

In addition to tummy control, it relieves back pressure via belly lift, shifting the woman's uneven weight distribution in a way that assists posture and balance. Belly bands are seamless and boneless, and therefore can be worn under clothing, helping to create smooth lines. They exert very little pressure, so there will be no pinching of the skin.

Belly support bands are flexible belt-like garments that are used to control and support the pregnant woman's growing baby bump. While most women purchase these garments in early to mid-pregnancy, many find them useful long after childbirth has taken place. These bands are typically manufactured from soft, pliant fabrics, in blends that often include cotton, nylon, Lycra, and spandex.

Unlike traditional shapewear, they do not have seams or boning and are not meant to literally cinch or nip the waistline. Instead, they are used to lift the abdomen and therefore provide pain and pressure relief to the lower back.

Early in pregnancy, belly support bands are often used to extend the life of the woman's pre-pregnancy wardrobe. To do this, it is worn similar to a wide belt, covering the belly but also the button fly area of the woman's pants or jeans. This way, the pants can be worn undone, yet covered and held in place.

During this stage, women also love the light tummy control it provides, helping to her waistline looking smooth and trim-looking despite the subtle expansion. At this phase, many women are still concerned with their appearance, and belly bands can eliminate the bumps and bulges that are the first signs of pregnancy.

The woman's second trimester often brings a more pronounced belly. By this time, many women find that shirts and blouses from their existing wardrobe are becoming too short to cover their abdomen. Some may find this cute, but others prefer a bit more coverage. Wearing a belly band during this time is an easy solution to that problem. Additionally, women will start to wear more and more maternity-style pants. Bands can help keep those in place as well, which is very helpful with those pants that may be a little hard to adjust.

During late pregnancy, women often use belly support bands as belts, worn completely under the belly and the back, thereby providing the most support possible. Soon after childbirth, they can be used to cinch those maternity pants that are now too large and to help with control while the woman awaits a return to form.

For the nursing mothers, they can continue to be worn on the mid-section, rendering under-breast support and tummy control, or as a shirt for extra coverage. Belly support bands are very versatile, and are popular for this reason - they have an almost unlimited number of uses from early pregnancy to postpartum and beyond.

Transition Post Pregnancy Styles

Postpartum Leggings Postpartum FashionIn the beginning months of your pregnancy, when you are first starting to show, your regular jeans and tops begin to get a little snug. You might strain to get your favorite pair of jeans buttoned or realize that your usual tank tops are riding up a bit. This same issue occurs after your pregnancy when your maternity clothes are too big, yet your baby weight prevents you from fitting comfortably into your pre-pregnancy styles. These stages of early and post pregnancy call for the aptly named "transition wear", clothing great for early pregnancy and after, when you are not quite back to your pre-pregnancy weight. There are several brands which make great transitional clothing, where an extra room in the waist and bust is provided without looking like maternity clothing.

Pants can often be a difficult item of clothing to fit, especially during this transitional period. In the beginning stages of pregnancy, your pre-pregnancy jeans become snug to the button, and the maternity jeans are too big. After pregnancy, this same issue reoccurs. One great trick during these transitional periods is the Bella Band by Ingrid & Isabel. This elastic transitional piece is incredible for all stages of your pregnancy and will help you transition smoothly in the early months of pregnancy to after your baby has been born. When your pre-pregnancy jeans are a bit too tight, slip the Bella Band over the waistline with the pants unbuttoned. This will give you the extra room while still keeping your pants in place.

In the beginning, when maternity pants are still a bit too big, you can wear the Bella Band over the waistline and it will make them fit snugly. Coming in a variety of colors, the Bella Band is a great investment. Another great transitional piece is a trendy pair of sweatpants. Sleek and in style, sweats designed for transitional wear do not look like maternity clothes and provide comfort before, during, and after your pregnancy. The Bella Band Essentials Everyday Soft Pant is stylish and figures flattering. It can be worn in a number of ways, from folding the waistband underneath a smaller belly to wearing it unfolded over the belly during the later months of your pregnancy. So many women today, pregnant or not, wear cute, boot cut stretches pants and these from Ingrid & Isabel work for pregnancy or after. Since the fabric is super soft and sleek, they can be dressed up or down and can be paired with a variety of tops.

After pregnancy, there are several ways to camouflage that bit of extra baby weight. One option is to look for tops with an interesting neckline. This will draw the attention upwards and create visual interest around your face. Another great option to consider is a fitted blazer or jacket. A structured jacket provides shape and style while camouflaging anything you might not want to show. Overall, there are many pieces which will work well during the early stages of pregnancy and post-pregnancy. Find your favorites styles, and you will look and feel great throughout your pregnancy.

HOW DOES A POSTPARTUM GIRDLE WORK?

Postpartum Girdle Postpartum ShapewearWhen a woman goes through a pregnancy, her abdominal muscles are stretched and her internal organs are moved to leave enough space for the baby. After delivery, the belly will disappear as a result of all stretching and other changes. You cannot expect your stomach to immediately become flat again, but over time and with the aid of a postpartum belt, you can make your tummy appear before the pregnancy.

The postpartum girdle is different and is put on quickly following the delivery, the hope is that it can help you to get to the form you had prior to your own stomach size increase by helping put pressure on your organs to go back in place. It also might help, via pressure, to alleviate soreness in the 'shifting' of the lately re-configured innards. Postpartum girdles in many cases are put on Twenty-four hours a day seven days a week (excepting bathrooms obviously!).

Postpartum girdles will also help a person get back to their pre-pregnancy clothing size, assisting their loose belly through 'pressure'. While executing your own exercise routine will help you firm up as mentioned before the postpartum girdle helps in the rearrangement of organs back to normal positions. There is also a belief the girdle may reduce postpartum blood loss, uterine cramps as well as lower back pain.

What is a Postpartum Girdle?

A postpartum girdle is basically a wrap for your stomach. You wrap it around your belly and it's designed to compress your belly and help flatten it out more quickly. The compression is also said to help your organs return to their normal position and help your uterus get back to its original size as well.

Using a Belly Wrap

A wrap or girdle should be used immediately following the delivery of your child. Obviously, you may not be able to wear it the same day and you should check with your doctor to be sure you're okay to wear one. The sooner you are able to start wearing it, the sooner you'll be able to see the positive effects from it.

C-Section Births

A cesarean section takes a bit longer to recover from than a vaginal birth and this is because the woman goes through surgery to have the baby removed. A pregnancy girdle can help a woman recover more quickly from a C-section birth. It won't make the healing process faster, only time can heal wounds, but it can certainly help to alleviate any back pain experienced during the first few weeks following delivery.

Wearing the Girdle

When you're wearing the postpartum girdle properly, it will help to flatten your stomach while still allowing you to feel comfortable. You don't want to wear it so tight that it becomes uncomfortable. You should try to wear it as often as possible in order to achieve the best possible results. To get your tummy back into its pre-pregnancy shape you should also remember that you need to eat a healthy diet and it would also help to start exercising as soon as your doctor provides you the okay.

ABDOMINAL BELTS ARE THEY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?

Abdominal BeltAbdominal belts are becoming more and more popular these days. These belts offer a safe and effective way of losing weight and toning muscles. There are no harsh chemicals that you have to worry about when using an abdominal belt. You are the one doing the work not some kind of fat burning chemical. The belt just enhances the fat burning opportunities that you have during a workout routine.

There is no easy way to weight loss, but a great way to aid in the process of weight loss is an abdominal belt. These belts will work best if you incorporate the use into a regular exercise program. You can use these belts alone or with a routine exercise program or you can use them alone. The quickest way to get results is to combine the use of the belt into your daily or weekly routine. An ab belt uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles. This causes you to get double the results while exercising.

The great thing about these belts is that they are a healthy way to lose weight. You do not have to worry about unsafe chemicals that are often found in many weight loss options. Many times these chemicals are not even effective at weight loss and you waste time and money on bad products. No worries with the abdominal belt because you decide how quickly you lose weight by how often you use the belt. The quickest way to get results is by incorporating the belt into a regular exercise routine.

Do Abdominal Belts Work?

You probably have seen them on the television, the advertisements that say you can get rock hard abs by wearing an abs belt only 10 minutes a day. Do these abdominal belts actually work?

To answer this question let me first explain what an abdominal belt is. An abdominal belt works with some kind of electrical muscle stimulation, also called EMS technology. This technology mimics an abdominal workout by contracting the abs. The belt gives the abs an electrical signal every 5 seconds. Usually on the belt is a device where you can put in a program or a time that the belt does contractions. While the belt is busy sending signals through your abs you can do other things.

A lot of ab belt manufacturers promise you to get hard abs and lose weight by only wearing the ab belt 10 minutes a day. This is not entirely true because if you are thinking you can lose weight and get hard abs while eating junk food and sitting on the couch playing video games all day you are wrong. The abdominal belt can lose your weight and get you hard abs but you have to put in much more effort next to the belt. If you play sports or run the treadmill for 30 minutes next to wearing the belt it might work.

There are plenty good ab belts out there but you have to realize that it is just an additional workout next to your normal workout and that it then might work for you. If you want to purchase an abdominal belt the best thing to do is to look online for one. Online you can compare different ab belts and their prices. You can also read reviews and see how other people think about an ab belt.
