Following childbirth, it's easy to forget about yourself. After all, you're maybe nursing around the clock and probably non-stop thinking about that new wailing, pooping roommate you've been tasked to keep alive. But don't ignore your own needs: nurturing YOURSELF, mama, is absolutely essential when taking care of your baby. Because when you're short on shut-eye and feeling completely rundown, that takes its toll on everyone in the family. So whether you want to go for an energetic walk with your babe (or solo) or get dressed like it is yest... pre baby, we want you to give yourself some mother-care. That's why we've partnered with our friends at Birdling, Solly Baby, Dock-A-Tot, Yumi, Hatch and Bumbleride. Enter below for a chance to win $2,000 in shop credit (and go to our Instagram post to complete your entry)! And scroll down for all the details.
