The Belly Bandit claims to slim your waist post-pregnancy, but I’m a believer because it supports my core, which helps my achy back until I can return to yoga.
Belly Bandit, from $24.95

I love the ritual of grinding beans and brewing coffee in my stovetop espresso maker, but if a touch of a button is all that comes between me and a cup, then I can’t live without my Nespresso machine.

I’ve tried a few swaddles and my favorite is the SwaddleMe Original. The velcro does all the work for me, which is just what I need at 2am.
SwaddleMe Original, from $9.99

Motherhood comes with a lot of anxiety. No matter how tired I am, sometimes I battle insomnia. Calms Forté eases my nerves and helps me sleep without leaving me feeling sluggish, no matter what time I take it.
Calms Forté, $9.99

We have Sonos Play speakers set up in both the kids’ rooms. Our son doesn’t sleep without Miles Davis on Pandora.
Sonos Play speakers, from $149

If I find even 20 minutes to rest during the day, I don’t waste time closing the shades. I put on my sleep mask and find anywhere I can to lie down. Bucky 40 Blinks is a great one.
