Have you thought about what happens in the bathroom after you've had a vaginal birth?
I'm not going to sugarcoat it:
Your vag will be sore! Possibly torn. Possibly stitched. And peeing will make it feel like you're on fire. I won't even mention the first poop. (It can be traumatic!)
You won't be using toilet paper for a few weeks! In the hospital, you might be given a peri bottle—a small squirt bottle to use to clean yourself up.
The style of bottle the hospital will give you.
Cons of The Hospital Bottle
- You have to get in real close to clean yourself. The soiled water will hit the nozzle and you'll have to sanitize after every use
- Squeezing it upside down is hard.
- Getting your hand and bottle in the toilet to clean yourself is awkward.
Unlike the bottles from the hospital, these bottles are designed to make cleaning yourself much easier. When you use the bottle, the water is closest to the nozzle and the air bubble is at the top.
That means you won't need to put any effort into getting an uninterrupted flow of water. Plus, you only have to fit the tip under you. Not the entire bottle and your hand!
Choose your colour, pink or blue. You receive one bottle.
Each bottle holds 500ml of water.
