File this pick under the “childbirth is so glamorous” category. When I was moved to the postpartum room of the hospital, my nurse taught me how to make a recovery pad. It involved an ice pack with a pad on top, then covering the pad with the numbing cream and putting it all in that amazing hospital underwear. The ice packs they give at the hospital, though, are the ones you snap and shake and then throw away when the cold wears off. I saw this shape of ice pack online and my brain went immediately went to that usage. It’s basically pad-shaped already! I laughed when I saw it recommended for shoulders, ankles, etc., when it really could be used for postpartum relief. A pack of two is $15.95 at Amazon and is eligible for Prime. Gel Ice Cold Compress
