5 Simple Tips For Dressing The Right Way During Pregnancy

5 Simple Tips For Dressing The Right Way During Pregnancy

When I first got pregnant, I felt like I had to relearn how to dress and sort through what worked for my new growing shape

HOW TO BUILD A MATERNITY CAPSULE WARDROBE

HOW TO BUILD A MATERNITY CAPSULE WARDROBE

Pregnancy is exhausting without thinking about what in your closet still fits.  We've got you covered with a free checklist and guide to keeping you and your growing bump cozy & comfortable

How to create a Pregnancy Wardrobe You'll Love

1. Find pieces that are flattering

Dressing a pregnant you is a lot different than dressing a regular you. Those high-waisted jeans and crop tops just don't have the same appeal with a baby bump. Not to mention it might be impossible depending on how far along you are. Choose items that flatter your bump, whether it's a peplum top or a more fitted silhouette. You can definitely go with roomier dresses but you might want to add a belt to accentuate your bump. You don't want people to question whether or not you're pregnant or just had a few too many burritos

2. Go for Comfort

Now is not your time to suck it up in heels and uncomfortable outfits. Choose shoes with a manageable heel, or just reach for those flats! As your body is changing so does the fit of your clothes. While you might be able to find some non-maternity outfits that work, chances are you'll need to invest in some good maternity basics, like tees and jeans.

3. Get Creative With Accessories

While you might not want to invest in those expensive maternity jeans, that designer handbag will work during and after your pregnancy. Take pregnancy as an opportunity to play up the accessories and add unique touches to your outfits. Even if you're just in a tee and jeans, you can add a flowy kimono cardigan, cute sandals, and a wide brim hat.

10 MATERNITY ESSENTIALS TO NAIL CHIC & COMFY BABY BUMP STYLE

We get it. Your jeans don’t button and suddenly your waking up each morning attempting to dress a body shape you’ve never had before. Welcome to the wonderful world of pregnancy! We know first hand what it’s like to have those clothes that fit you yesterday suddenly become too small, too tight or too short, seemingly overnight. (Oo how we desperately want just one more day with our favorite skinny jeans.) The fact is; you’re now dressing for two. Instead of hiding under what some may argue looks like a tent, women get to celebrate their bumps and keep their personal style throughout those nine magical months.

Now for the fun part: Here are 10 maternity essentials that are great building blocks to begin carving out a comfortable, flattering & versatile maternity wardrobe.

1. CLASSIC TEES
From shorts to skirts, a classic tee goes with everything. Choose the style you prefer (i.e., crew or V-neck) but make sure there's a bit of stretch in the material so it'll grow with you.

2. KNIT TUNICS
Interchangeably called Maternity tunics, longer length tunics are the perfect choice for this season of your life when your size and shape are constantly changing. —the longer length provides extra coverage where you need it, and this is one style that can take you all the way from your first trimester through 40 weeks and beyond.
3. THE WRAP DRESS
There’s nothing like a beautiful pregnant tummy in an equally beautiful dress. Show off your newfound silhouette in a flattering wrap dress. Try wrap-style, cinched, faux-wrap or gathered-waist dresses that are non-maternity.
4. A BLACK DRESS
Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean this timeless and classic fashion staple is off-limits. It'll take you anywhere, from a dinner date with your mate to an evening out with friends.
5. A WRAP SWEATER
These tunic-length knit tops wrap around with an adjustable tie that you can fasten tighter early in pregnancy and looser as your belly grows. The soft lines and slim-fitting bodice create a flattering silhouette.

6. A WATERFALL CARDIGAN
The extra bit of fabric from the waterfall hemline is flattering to your growing baby bump. They are also great for nursing because they’re loose enough to use the extra material to cover up when nursing

7. A FEEL GOOD BLACK MIDI SKIRT
Skirts instantly dress up any more basic pieces in your essentials collection and in our opinion beats squeezing into that pair of jeans that have suddenly shrunk overnight. Opt for a pleated midi skirt or midi pencil skirt with ruched detailing.
8. MATERNITY JEANS
Jeans are a staple item in every wardrobe, so it’s only natural that every expectant mother needs a nice, comfy pair of maternity jeans as well. If you only buy one true maternity piece of clothing go for a pair of dark maternity jeans!
9. BLACK LEGGINGS
Comfy leggings are a mom-to-be's best friend, especially in autumn. Resist the urge to buy pricey maternity leggings the second you know you're preggers because mjost regular leggings will fit right up to your due date, especially if they're made from ultra-stretchy fabric.

10. BUTTON STYLE TUNIC
for a casual look, choose a tailored maternity style button tunic (narrow through the top and shoulders with plenty of room for your growing belly) or a comfy chambray denim button up. Button tunics will be awesome once its time for nursing!

WINTER WARDROBE ESSENTIALS WHEN YOUR PREGNANT

Brrrrr, it's cold outside! When you are pregnant and getting dressed to battle the winter weather, you want to make sure your look is both cute and cozy. Rather than buy loads of new clothes, take a look at which of these maternity staples you should get and how to wear the ones you probably already have hanging in your closet.

 

Layering Tops

Piling on the layers is always essential in the winter months, especially when your body temperature is fluctuating because of pregnancy. To get into maternity layering, you should stock up on maternity t-shirts with various necklines, colours and styles. 100% cotton tops are always a good idea and are kind to your skin. If you prefer a tighter fit, try a cotton blend with a bit of stretch. Its a good idea to buy extra long t-shirts too, so that they can see you through into your second trimester.

Ponchos and Sweater Dresses

Ponchos are perfect for maternity winter dressing, as they are like wearing a huge cozy blanket! They drape nicely around your body and baby bump. Sweater dresses are also great for dressing your growing bump.

Jeans and Trousers

Maternity jeans are a must, but there are many other trousers and pants out there that are super stylish. With many styles to choose from, including skinny cords and leather leggings, they can be a great way to look festive when paired with a smart top or even a basic tee. Invest in something with a waist that can expand, so they can grow with you and you can get more for your money. Styles with a full stretch panel can be really comfy and lycra will give you plenty of stretch.

 

Cute Pjs & Loungewear

At Christmas you really need some cute pjs to wear. From comfy cotton tops with long or short sleeves with matching pants, you can get a whole range in a variety of colours. Plaid is a great look for the winter too.

A Timeless Winter Coat

Something you will need is a warm winter coat. From smart to casual there are so may looks you can go for. Get something with a tie waist so that it will be able to grow with you and expand as your growing bump will. 

Cardigans

Wrap up warm in an oversized cardigan, what could be more cozy? While lying on the sofa relaxing or going out for a coffee, an oversized cardigan is great for layering too. 

 

Pom Beanies & Hats

You know my obsession with pom beanies, and I’m actually quite particular with how they should fit! I like them to have a little slouch, and I love for the pom to be a different color (is that weird? Haha, just a personal preference!). Wearing hats in the winter is essential to staying warm, and I refuse to leave the house without one (which is probably why I have so many?). 

 

5 Things that had My 2 Month Old Sleeping through the night

5 Things that had My 2 Month Old Sleeping through the night

When we brought Charlotte home from the NICU, the first few nights were rough.  I had her in a Halo Bassinest next to my bed and she just screamed bloody murder.  It shouldn't come as any surprise though, the jokes about sleep deprivation start the moment you announce your pregnant.  

Don't get me wrong.  For breast feeding mama's with a few day old baby the Halo Bassinest is certainly something to check out!  Charlotte had just spent a month in the NICU in her own little area she wanted her space at night.  Within two weeks of being home we had her in her crib.  Crib training doesnt mean peaceful sleeper though.  Those epic midnight wails and 2:00am screams still echo in my ears. That ended though when I incorporated 1 simple routine & 3 products to bedtime.  Charlotte sleeps through the night every night, all night and  I'm here to tell you that by the end of this article you'll be well on your way to having your goodnight sleep back!

 

have your baby sleeping through the night ASAP

1. Pampers PURE  2. MAGIC MERLIN SLEEPSUIT   3. White Noise Machine  4.WUBBANUB PACIFIER

 

 

4 Products for getting your baby to sleep through-the-night 

 

1: The MAGIC MERLIN SLEEPSUIT

Actually buy 2! Seriously.  You'll never worry about it being in the wash when bed time hits.  While it was hard not to laugh hysterically at her in this thing it works like a charm.  The pillowy padding helps counteract any sudden movements that would normally wake up your baby and also calms them like a swaddle.  Look how peaceful!

2.  A DOHM White Noise Machine

Don't worry about fancy waterfall noises.  A loud car exhaust outside, barking dog, even a door closing is all it takes to wake that sleeping bundle of joy. the white noise static sound drowns out anything that may disrupt baby.

3. A SECURITY BLANKET OR PACIFIER

Charlotte loves her WUBBANUBS (the little animals make spitting this out and fussing almost impossible!!).  The lights and melodies that shine from the Swaddleme Elephant is a great option too if you don't feel comfortable with leaving a pacifier in the crib

4: ONE SIZE UP ORGANIC DIAPERS

Make sure to buy a box of diapers 1 size bigger than what your baby is currently in during the day.  My mom gave me this tip and it was the last key to her sleeping happy & dry through the night.  

I recommend Pampers Pure. You can get huge boxes from Amazon right to your door and you don't have to worry about baby growing out of them.  They are literally growing into them!  While I feel better leaving her in a diaper free from scents, allergens, etc.  Our NICU used HUGGIES exclusively which is slightly more budget friendly!

COMBINE THESE PRODUCTS WITH A CONSISTENT ROUTINE & MINIMIZE STIMULATION

More important than anything you buy or try!  Babies as young as 4 weeks premature thrive on it.  Ask any NICU Nurse.  No surprises and consistency keep baby at peace as well as minimizing stimulation prior to bedtime. A warm bath, a book, or a song can help a child wind down.

& That's All!! We've linked all the items you need below & even better is with Amazon Prime your baby can be sleeping through the night by the weekend!
