Postpartum: What to Wear Home From the Hospital
Remember that show “What Not to Wear”? Ok so here’s my what not to wear home from the hospital after delivering a baby: jeans, a thong and a form fitting shirt. Trust me, none of those things (even if they’re maternity) are going to make you feel good after delivering a baby. In fact you probably should avoid those things for the next six months, seriously.
Here’s a few ideas of what to wear home from the hospital. And side bar, if you want to wear sweats or pajama pants home that is totally your prerogative! But I know from experience that leaving the hospital always signifies a step back into reality so I like to change out of the pj’s I’ve been wearing for last 48 hours. It just makes me feel slightly human again.
Summer and Spring
1// A flowy maxi or sun dress: if you had a favorite dress during pregnancy my guess is it will be your favorite for a few weeks after delivery. Definitely consider packing it! Pictured below: Levi’s Jean Jacket, Leopard Slip Ons
2// Leggings, nursing top, kimono and sandals: basically pajamas in disguise. You’ll feel dressed but also like you could go straight to bed. The kimono also makes for a great little cover up. Pictured above: PinkBlush Kimono (get 20% off by ordering through my link!), Birkenstocks
Fall and Winter
1//Flowy maxi dress and jean jacket: again, maxi dresses are your post partum friend. The jean jacket will help you stay warm and look really pulled together.
2// Leggings, oversized t-shirt and cardigan sweater: I mean it’s a go-to fall outfit that is perfect for postpartum. I guarantee you’ll be wearing this outfit on the reg. Pair it with a cute pair of slip ons or chucks.
There you have it, some tried and true postpartum outfits that will have you leaving the hospital feeling like Heidi Klum No matter what you wear just remember to give yourself grace and know that you are truly a rockstar. You just brought a human into the world that you made in your own body. Dang girl, you can do anything!!!!
