Congratulations, Ellie! You were chosen randomly by the program “And the winner is..”
If you’ve had a baby at home or in a birth center then you are familiar with that nasty herbal bath they suggest you get in after birth. Pretty much you gaurantees that you will smell like an Italian restaurant for a few days.
I wasn’t looking forward to using it again but I know the benefits are tremendous. You can guess how excited I was to find that Motherlove makes a Sitz Bath Spray eliminating the need to marinate myself!
Sitz Bath Spray contains witch hazel, yarrow, uva ursi, lavender essential oil and grapefruit essential oil. Don’t be alarmed by the “grain alcohol” ingredient. No it doesn’t burn even when you have a tear (at least I wasn’t affected).
The Motherlove Sitz Bath Spray was soothing and pleasant. Whenever I had a day where I did too much and the pain/swelling increased I would apply the spray, rest and would notice a significant decrease in both symptoms.
Post-birth isn’t the only time I found this product beneficial. I wouldn’t normally share something this personal but it is an additional benefit for the Sitz Bath Spray.
If you’ve given birth before you know the first time you are intimate with your husband post-partum is scary, painful and not very enjoyable. No matter how you prepare or how long you wait there will be swelling and soreness afterwards. Using the Motherlove Sitz Bath Spray after intimacy reduces the swelling and decreases your healing time.
Certainly not something they advertise in their product description but a definite use, none-the-less.
I have also been able to use the Motherlove Diaper Rash & Thrush ointment. The ointment is not oily but more like the consistency of butter that is fully melted then brought to room temperature again. Hopefully 2 or 3 of y’all know what I’m talking about. :)
It is cloth diaper safe and you can apply it to your nipples and not have to wash it off before baby nurses! This is the first product I will recommend if a mom and baby get the dreaded thrush.
