Padsicles

Even though our kit includes a few large perineal ice packs for immediately after birth, I decided to make my own anti-inflammatory, soothing padsicles with three different sizes of disposable winged pads as well:

I put aloe vera, lavender essential oil, & witch hazel in a spray bottle, coated the pads, closed them back up, & placed them in the freezer. I read that these can be such a blessing, & it took all but a few minutes of my time so I figured why not? We’ll see how they work out in due time.
