Postpartum Healing Pads

pad cover

I’m a huge wimp when it comes to anything cold – including icing injuries.
These, however, were a lifesaver during the early days.

Before baby arrives…invite a friend over, make up a batch of these, and stick them in your freezer & wait!

{NOTE: The only thing I’d consider doing different next time is adding essential oils- I feel as though I’m the only person on earth who knows nothing about these, but here they’re quite amazing! If you’re in the know…go ahead and mix them in, too!}

Supplies:
Aloe Vera
Witch Hazel
Somewhat thick maxis
Gallon Ziplock Bags
(optional: essential oils; perhaps lavender)

Directions:
●Open up a pad; leave the back packaging on -you’ll need to rewrap it.
●Pour two tablespoons of witch hazel throughout the pad….yup. it’s like the commercials with the weird blue liquid!
●Drizzle Aloe Vera then spread with spoon
●Wrap back up & store in ziplock bag
●Toss in the freezer and wait for baby!
