Q/A of the week:

What do you wear after baby gets here? Nursing wear? Regular clothes? Where do you buy nursing clothes? For people having their first baby, the whole post delivery attire and what you actually will wear will probably shock you. I got it all. Nursing bras, nursing-friendly tops/dresses, but mainly lived in a couple options. I absolutely loved this came and lounge set up Ingrid and Isabel. So comfortable that I actually already have a new set for when baby #2 arrives. I personally loved the nursing friendly cami vs using an abundance of nursing bras. Of course, I used them too but RIGHT after baby, loved this set!

I tried to utilize the maternity dresses while I could as I didn’t love the look of the postpartum outfits.

What do you plan to take in your hospital bag for delivery? As well as port part mommy care products?  I will do a post on mommy care products the closer I get to delivery so I think this is such an important topic and such a hush hush conversation. No one talks about the bad and the ugly! I will! ha! As far as the hospital bag, I actually did a post on what I brought and then after the hospital did another one on what I actually used. You’d be amazed at how much you don’t need! What I brought , what I brought for myself vs. what I actually used.

Are you guys planning to do anything permanent when baby girl gets here to make sure you don’t have anymore kids? As soon as baby girl comes out, JJ is getting wheeled in. haha!

Do you worry about any resentment V may have after you have your second baby girl? I don’t. Vivienne is going to continue to get a lot of my attention and I am going to try my hardest to keep her involved in everything. I am sure there will be a balance and an adjustment, but I’m game for it.

What double stroller will you get? We will use the uppababy stroller as it can convert to strolling two kids and then will probably get a side by side stroller at some point. Do you have any you recommend?

Feel free to keep the questions coming! Love answering them for you.
