postpartum musical

Update (2/24/15): The kind folks at HelloFlo shared their full-length musical video with us. Watch it below!

Keep your sense of humor—that's the advice veteran moms like to trot out when their new mama buddies are in the weeds with baby. But honestly? That's a helluva lot easier said than done when your newborn won't stop crying, all of your shirts smell like old cheese, and muscles you didn't even know you had are on fire. Nope, sometimes we need a little help seeing the funny side of life post-baby.

Enter "Postpartum: The Musical," a razzle-dazzle play about our gnarliest new mom woes, reports Fast Company. No topic seems to be off limits -- check out a sample verse: "My boobs are swollen, red, and sore. I leak a lot, then I leak some more. Fever's got me down for days, it's what the doctors call malaise. It sucks! I'm trapped! My ducts are blocked and my nipples are chapped! Mastitis!!!!" (*jazz hands*)

Genius, right? Then again, considering the Broadway-style musical is the brainchild of HelloFlo -- the same folks who brought us the hysterical viral video "Camp Gyno" -- we'd expect nothing less. Besides giving us a much-needed reason to chuckle, the video will help promote the company's New Mom Survival kits. (Think must-have unmentionables like sitz sprays, super absorbent pads, nipple balm, and a breakfast bar for quick energy.)

The complete "Postpartum: The Musical" won't be released online until February 24, but you can check out the hysterical preview below. Feel free to bookmark it for those moments when your sense of humor has gone AWOL (I know I will).

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
