Non-toxic Padsicles

During my hospital stay with my first and second, one thing I was given in the post partum department that felt so good on my lady bits was this cold pack they would break and place in my pad. After some research, I decided I want those well after I deliver because you can stay swollen, inflamed and still have burning down there well after you've delivered and been discharged from the hospital. Also, anything I can do to speed up the healing process, I am open to. 

Insert - the padsicle.



What you'll need:


+ these will be great for when the bleeding is not 
as heavy moving into day 2-3 and beyond


+ I think these are going to be great for the heavy 
flow you experience right after delivering 




spoon

ziplock baggies
