This review was written and performed by Kristen, DDL Contributor, for the New Baby Event.
When I returned home after having a c-section with my second baby I was looking forward to enjoying a shower in my own home. I had received the Cherub Shower Hug to review and was pretty excited to get to try it out, as my milk had come in that morning and my nipples were sore and cracked already due to latching problems. As I was about to hop in the shower, I was faced with a major dilemma…whether to use the Shower Hug to cover my c-section staples, or use it to cover my sore nipples and engorged breasts!!!
I ended up using it to cover my nipples but did also use it to cover my c-section incision at a later shower. Something so simple has turned out to be pretty useful. The Shower Hug is a soft velour fabric that Velcro’s together to make a snug fit. It has many uses, such as protecting nipples or an incision in the shower, or using it as post partum support around your belly. The fabric is great, as it sucks up the warmth of the water and keeps gentle pressure on your breasts, which really helps with engorgement. The only thing I had difficulty with is that the Velcro is so good that it can be hard to un-velcro and readjust. I just adjusted it once and then I slip into the Shower Hug by stepping into it and pulling it up. It can sag at times when really wet, but I think I could probably make it tighter to alleviate that problem.
In addition to the Shower Hug, I also used the burp cloth and wash cloth (which is free after a $50 purchase), and I absolutely LOVE both of them! The fabric for both is the same as the Shower Hug and is so soft against my baby’s face and body. The wash cloth is my favorite one to use now because of how soft it is and how absorbent it is holding the soapy water to wash my newborn baby and my 1 year old. So, in addition to the Shower Hug being a nice product for new moms, the burp cloth and wash cloth make it even more worth spending the money because not only can you treat yourself (or another new mom) but you can also treat your baby as well!
