Motherhood is an experience like no other. The ups, the downs, the kisses, the tantrums, the poo explosions and all the milestones you get to witness as a parent is incredible. It is hard to only pick one favourite moment as a mother as everyday there are so many memorable, beautiful times with Harper.
However, I must say my proudest and one of the most memorable moments for me was after I gave birth to Harper. Those first couple of days as a mother are just euphoric. I remember it so vividly; wheeling my fresh, smooshy little Harper Rose in her hospital bassinet through the hospital with the biggest grin on my face. I wouldn’t exactly say I “glided” around but rather hobbled with my legs spread apart (due to the 20 icepacks I had shoved down there…possibly too much information?).
It really is insane how the female body can go through such a physically and emotionally draining event and then you get this extra rush of endorphins and adrenaline which lasted me 3 days with only a couple of hours sleep. Needless to say, once I got home a whole new level of exhaustion caught up with me.
Those first couple of days as a mother really change how you see the world and what REALLY is important to you now. I also found a new appreciation for baby wipes- the holy grail of motherhood (besides coffee and wine of course). Now Harper is older baby wipes are still an essential, nothing wipes away Vegemite trials like a good old Curash wipe!
I am a well prepared and organised person (well I was pre-baby anyways) so I had EVERYTHING I needed for Harper and this included my stash of Curash water wipes. As a mother, it can be daunting choosing the best brand for your baby. One that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals and also one that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg (oh god I definitely sound like a mum now).
Curash has been providing mums amazing products for not only their babies bottoms but they also have shampoos, soap-free bath washes and amazing creams for conditions like eczema along with one of my fave products the Nasal spray for when bub is unwell.
The two Curash products that I mentioned I swear by are the water wipes which stood out to me right away as I wanted to keep it simple for Harpers skin and I’m happy to say we never have a problem with nappy rash! The second is the nasal spray; it comes with a long thin nozzle which you can place up bubs nose easily and just spray the salt solution. I tried the drops you can get from the chemist but this was nearly as difficult as it was giving birth.
