How to make padsicles for post-partum recovery

My friend who became a mom five months before me told me about these padsicles from the All Things Surrogacy blog. I’m really glad I made them before Elyse was born. They are super cold at first, but really soothe “down there” after you give birth. I was so sore, like I had run a marathon and did Crossfit all on the same day (which I’ve never done either). Since I had an episiotomy, I was even more sore. I was supposed to stay away from stairs and not move too much for a few days. These were also a good reminder for me to take it easy, because you could really feel the cold “medicine”. I used 1-2 padsicles a day for the first week. Links are affiliates, so I may receive a small commission to support the blog.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Open the pads and lay them out to be prepared. Keep all the plastic backing in tact so you can fold them up again.
  2. Squirt witch hazel on the pads.
  3. Add three drops each of lavender and tea tree essential oil.
  4. Squirt aloe vera all over the pads and use a spoon to mix and spread everything out.
  5. Re-fold the pads and stuff them in the freezer bags.
  6. Freeze and wait for baby to come!
  7. Once you are ready to use them, thaw them out for a few minutes because they are super cold!
