Pregnant? Breastfeeding? Go order yourself a Shower Hug NOW! Okay, I’m being a little dramatic, but I’ve loved my Shower Hug ever since receiving it.
The Shower Hug is basically a soft terry cloth towel with a velcro closure that wraps around your breasts. The velcro closure is four inches wide, so it will still fit as your breast size fluctuates. The purpose of the wrap is to provide breast relief and support.
And relief and support it gives! In the first couples weeks when your milk is coming in, you’re feeling engorged, and your nipples are tender from getting the hang of breastfeeding, the Shower Hug is a life saver. I felt so much support by having it wrapped around me, not to mention the water pressure of the shower was no longer hitting my tender nipples.
Since those first initial weeks postpartum, I don’t use the Shower Hug religiously anymore, however, with my bouts of mastitis it has come in handy once again. My breasts would ache and the wrap would give them that little hug that they needed to make it through the shower without pain.
I keep forgetting that the Shower Hug can be used outside of the shower as well. You can use it to hold therapeutic warm or cold compresses (which I should when I have mastitis) and you can use it for support when sleeping (while still having easy access to nurse).
I think the Shower Hug would make a wonderful baby shower gift! If you know someone who is currently expecting you can surprise them with this knowing I recommend it!
