How it works

There are several things that are not shared with a woman when she is about to give birth. There seems to be so much focus on the birthing process and the bringing baby home process that sometimes the mother’s personal well being is overlooked as she pays close attention to her baby’s well being. What some moms are not aware of is that after having a vaginal birth, there is going to be a period of time that is going to be super uncomfortable. Most moms are not prepared for the time period post-partum when your vagina and surrounding area is going to be sore, stitched, or swollen. Fridababy created a product to help moms heal faster after having a vaginal birth. Fridababy created the Momwasher, a hand-held bidet that helps you clean your sore areas after using the bathroom. New moms almost never expect that wiping could be so painful. With the Momwasher, you can keep yourself clean and accelerate your healing process as you recover from giving birth.

 

Design

Design

The Fridababy Momwasher is designed to be like a small bidet (or Fridet as Fridababy describes it), that can be taken with you anywhere you go after you give birth. Most hospitals give new moms a squirt bottle that resembles a condiment bottle and is awkward to use. The Momwasher is designed to be easy to squeeze and aim.

The Momwasher is a bottle that has a cap with a bent nozzle. The nozzle’s tip looks like a showerhead that has tiny holes for the water to come out of.

By squeezing the bottle, water will shoot up and out of the bent nozzle gently shooting a shower-like stream of water over your vagina after you use the bathroom. The warm water will help wash your vagina after you have used the bathroom. In the event that there are stitches or swelling around your vagina from your birth, i.e. an episiotomy, you will not be able to really wipe yourself clean because of the pain and discomfort. The Momwasher gently rinses you off so that you don’t have to apply any wiping pressure to your sore area.
How It Works

How It Works

The Momwasher works in the simplest of ways. Fill the squeeze bottle with warm water. Make sure the water is not too hot or too cold. When the bottle is filled tightly secure the nozzle to the top of the bottle. Turn the bottle upside down with your finger over the top. Angle the nozzle spout so that is aimed directly at the area that needs to be cleaned and then give a gentle squeeze.

You will notice that because the nozzle head resembles a showerhead that the water will not shoot out of the bottle at full force, instead the water will come out of the bottle in a gentle stream that will delicately and softly hit the areas of your body that not only need to be cleaned, but need to be cleaned in a soft, effective way. The water will hit your body and it will wash away any excess urine and safely wash the area around your vagina.
Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel

Witch hazel has been used for a very long time to soothe problem areas. For people who are prone to acne and outbreaks on their skin, witch hazel has been proven to help as an anti-inflammatory. Witch hazel helps soothe and calm skin. Witch hazel, therefore, has been used widely in the healing process no matter what part of your body needs the most attention. It is recommended by the manufacturer that you place a little bit of witch hazel into the bottle before you apply the water to your body. With the witch hazel in the water, when it hits your skin it will start to accelerate the healing process by soothing the sore area of your body that just birthed a baby, and it will help decrease inflammation and soothe soreness so that you can still be on the go and move around as you normally would faster. You still have a baby to take care of, and the post-partum pain that you will be experiencing should not slow you down.
On the Go

On the Go

The Fridababy Momwasher comes with its own travel bag. Because you don’t want to stay in the house all day with your newborn, you want to get out and run errands and go to the park or be outdoors with your baby in the world. You will be visiting friends and family and you will be carting your child all over the place. Soreness should not prevent you from being able to show off your child or go where you need to go as you run your day-to-day life. For that reason, the travel bag is a great way to keep the Momwasher safe and clean.

The bag works just like any other small drawstring bag. You can bring it into the bathroom with you and quickly fill up the Momwasher with water, add your witch hazel and then after using the toilet you can give yourself the gentle rinse off you need as you continue to further heal and get back to normal.
In the Shower

In the Shower

The Momwasher can also be brought into the shower with you. Although many showers do have removable shower heads that are ideal for washing the areas of your body that need the most attention, the water pressure and the force of the water may apply an unwanted amount of pressure on to your private parts. The sting is already there around the clock from having given birth vaginally that you want at least one occurrence where you can clean yourself without despair.

The Momwasher can very easily be brought into the shower and used while you are bathing. You can fill up the Momwasher with the water that is already coming out of the shower and you can then use the Momwasher like normal to soothe the areas of your body that need the most attention. In the event that you do have stitches or have had other issues while giving birth, it is best to check with your doctor first to make sure if you can get stitches or staples or anything that may have occurred during birth wet.

As long as it’s okay to get that area wet, you will also need to apply soap to the area to properly clean yourself. It may benefit you to gently apply soap to the area of your body that is sore and use your hand to gently clean the area as best you can then take the Momwasher and spray the gentle stream of water over yourself to rinse off the soap in the event that your typical shower head has too much pressure and hurts your body when you use it.
Use It On Your Baby

Use It On Your Baby

You will heal. There will come a very quick time when you will no longer need the Momwasher and you can effectively wipe and clean yourself without any pain. When that time comes, you will still have the Momwasher in your possession and because it does not sustain any real wear and tear it will still be in great condition. Some moms have chosen to use the Momwasher to give their babies a quick rinse when they are changing their diapers.

Every parent knows that you can go through a whole box of wipes changing just one diaper especially if your baby is not digesting food well or if something did not agree with them. Whether or not your baby has an allergy or their digestive system is still developing, you will know by what you find in their diaper. Some moms who still have the Momwasher will wipe their child clean and then spritz them with the Momwasher to give their child a quick bidet when they are being changed. This method works very well if your child has diaper rash or some other irritation due to an allergic reaction to something or if they have not been well and the area of their body where they go to the bathroom has become irritated from constantly going to the bathroom and being changed and wiped. The Momwasher is a nice way to rinse the baby off with some softness and some soothing warm water that will not further irritate them if they are having an outbreak or rash of some kind. By using the Momwasher you will not use as many wipes, which will save you money in the long run.
Cleaning the Momwasher

Cleaning the Momwasher

The Momwasher will not need to be cleaned too often as it doesn’t come in contact with your body or any area that may get it dirty. If you use witch hazel, over time it may start to build up and clog some of the openings of the spout, so it may serve you to check the nozzle head from time to time to ensure that is clean and working properly. The same can be said for the bottle of the Momwasher as well. Every now and again it is a good idea to rinse out the bottle and wash it with some soap and water as a way to ensure that when the water squirts on your body there is nothing hitting you that may not be good for your healing parts. For those moms who only use water in the bottle, it is still a good idea to occasionally wash the bottle. Never put the Momwasher in the dishwasher as it will get damaged.
Price

Price

The Fridababy Momwasher is a very inexpensive item that is affordable for anyone. For the price that you will pay for the product you will not only get weeks of use out of the Momwasher while you are healing from giving birth, but when you are feeling better, the Momwasher has a second use for being able to be used on your baby if you choose to use this product in place of other similar products that are made for babies. The Momwasher becomes a sort of investment for you and your child that will help soothe, protect, and keep clean all of the areas of your bodies that need to be taken care of immediately. For the low price, the Fridababy Momwasher is a great purchase.
Conclusion

Conclusion

The Momwasher by Fridababy has gotten rave reviews across the board. There have been very few if any complaints at all about the little bottle that helps out in big ways. New moms or moms who have had multiple children all agree that the Momwasher is a great product to own because it is soothing and helps you keep yourself clean even though you may be sore, stitched up, or swollen. The best part that is praised is that the washer can be used with witch hazel to accelerate healing and soothe. The washer can also be used on your little one so that they too can feel clean and soothed if they have diaper rash or any other kind of outbreak. For the low price that it costs coupled with the fact that there don’t seem to be any kinds of cons for this product, the Momwasher by Fridababy should be more than just a consideration for new and expecting moms, but rather, a definite buy for those women that need a little extra TLC and comfort after delivering a baby. It is easy to use, safe to have, and will help you heal faster.
