I’ve partnered with Rite Aid and Pampers for this post. However, all opinions are mine. #RiteAidSummerFun
Cabin fever is a real thing after you have a baby, y’all. We ventured out yesterday for a bit of fresh air, and it was so refreshing to get out of the house! Lincoln is already two weeks old (don’t get me started), and I am feeling loads better from my C-Section. We’ve been trying to make it a priority to get the kids outside to burn some energy and enjoy this beautiful California weather. Summers here can get kind of warm during the day, but the evenings are so pleasant and the best time to get outdoors here in wine country.
I tend to avoid taking everyone out of the house, because it can be such a pain, but it’s so important to make it happen. It can be so easy to fall into the routine of being home bodies and not venturing out. Luckily, Tyler is still home from work and can help me with the undertaking. Since Lincoln was born early and might have a bit of a compromised immune system, I definitely haven’t wanted to take him somewhere public where there are a lot of people, either. So, the best thing right now seems to be going to the playground at the park!
Part of the overwhelm of getting everyone out of the house is the preparation involved. I am slowly learning how to make it as easy as possible with our new crew size. So far, it’s easier to throw Lincoln in the wrap carrier and I am new to packing for a toddler AND a newborn (and big kid and husband…) Luckily, Rite Aid has me covered with everything I need. We stopped by and restocked our diaper stash, grabbed drinks and snacks, sunscreen, and even handy snack cups for the kids. I love Pampers Cruisers diapers for Charlie because she is constantly moving, running, tumbling and playing. Pampers Cruisers have unique “Extra Absorb Channels” to help distribute wetness evenly, so it stays drier and doesn’t sag like ordinary diapers. Head over to Rite Aid between 7/23 and 8/26 and spend $50 on any Pampers products, get $10 toward your next purchase at Rite Aid. (What a deal!)
I think it’s so important to get out in the daylight with the kids, even if it’s just to the park. What do you think? Was your postpartum time starting to feel like being trapped in a prison? Go out and play!
