I have to admit: when I first saw this product, I kind of scrunched up my eyebrows in skepticism. It seemed like just another useless “invention” that might appear on the Home Shopping Network or in a package with one of those cheesy “As Seen on TV” labels (that somehow always manage to get my attention).
Flash-forward to a day or two after birth and you would have heard this conversation in my house:
Me: I should probably take a shower.
Me: Do you know where my Shower Hug is?
Husband: I think it’s in the dryer.
Me: Oh, good. I’m glad it’s clean. I can’t take a shower without it.
That’s a true story, friends.
The Shower Hug is a new mama necessity in the first few weeks postpartum. The soft protective material keeps the harsh spray of the waters off of your chest (which is likely tender from engorgement, sore nipples, etc.) and the velcro provides the optimal amount of support when you need it most.
At $27.95 (or $37.95 for the organic version…), the Shower Hug might seem a bit pricey considering the short amount of time that you use it (Case in point: I had my baby four weeks ago and I’m not using it anymore). That said, it will save you a lot of pain and tears in those first few weeks of recovery. I think it’s worth it. Perhaps you could even “split” the cost with a friend or your sister so that you know it will be put to good use…
