Why Probiotics Are Essential in Pregnancy and Infancy!

Why Probiotics Are Essential in Pregnancy and Infancy!

 

 

Did you know that the first 6 months of a babies life is the crucial time for implementing good digestive health?

I won’t lie, I currently have to take an iron supplement because I am anemic which messes up the digestive system. Constipation from the overload of iron is unreal, which is why I take probiotics while pregnant. But did you know that probiotics can be passed onto the baby in the womb too? I HIGHLY recommend that ALL pregnant women take not only probiotics while pregnant but digestive enzymes as well, and continue to take them while nursing. They play a huge part in having a healthy baby!

Make Washing Laundry Easier With the LG Twin Wash System

Make Washing Laundry Easier With the LG Twin Wash System

 

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card.

Last month, our dishwasher decided to kick buckets and stop running. That was okay because I loathed it anyways since it didn’t clean our dishes well enough to my liking. So we went out to find a better one at Best Buy since we’re Elite Plus card members. We ended up deciding on the LG top control dishwasher with Quadwash since it had the option of black stainless steel as a finish and had good reviews. So far it’s been GREAT! Takes a little longer to clean and dry the dishes but it’s an easy trade-off for me to have perfectly clean dishes without having to scrub them all beforehand.

Then a week after we bought our dishwasher, the washer decided to stop draining water and quit running after 5 minutes. We thought we could fix it on our own by ordering a couple of parts, but it still didn’t want to work correctly, so we were off to Best Buy again! We ended up picking out a Samsung washer, but I wish we would have waited and done this special offer with Best Buy for the LG Twin Wash System, but unfortunately, we needed a washer right away!

6 Natural Remedies to Help With Morning Sickness

 

For all 3 pregnancies, I’ve experienced nausea which usually lasts until around 16 weeks; at least for me anyways. And we all know nausea is not ideal.

DIY All Natural Body Butter Salve for Dry Winter Skin

DIY All Natural Body Butter Salve for Dry Winter Skin

 

If you’ve reached this post then you know that most beauty products on the market aren’t good for the biggest and one of the most important organ; the skin. It’s the first thing that people notice about you. I’m not gonna lie. My skin texture leaves little to be desired. I have freckles which are caused from the sun so that means I have sun damaged skin. I was tired of using products with parabens, propylene glycol, paraffin, sodium lauryl sulfate, you know, the bad chemicals that absorb into your skin and cause all kind of issues like dry skin, hair loss, inhibit skin cell growth and cause possible cancer. Anything that I can do to avoid these conditions is a must in my book!

I am a little late getting this DIY all-natural body butter salve recipe for dry winter skin up, but now’s just as perfect time as any since it’s still winter and most of us are still dealing with dreaded dry skin.

What Do You Feed a Picky Baby/Toddler?

What Do You Feed a Picky Baby/Toddler?

 

 

If you figure it out, let me know…

No really. My 2-year-old daughter is a dairy lovin’, carb stuffin’, peanut butter and fruit crammin’ machine. Oh, and of course a chocolate fiend. Those food groups are pretty much what I can get her to eat right now, IF that.

When I can, I try to sneak the veggies (which she instantly finds on her plate) into a smoothie; that way she never knows and she gets the nutrients and vitamins she needs to power through her day.

The one thing I can get her to eat without a fuss, though, is HappyBaby Baby’s First Whole Milk Yogurt. She loves it because it tastes good. I love it because it has no added sweeteners, contains vitamin d, probiotics, protein, vitamins and is USDA Certified Organic. It’s the perfect food for 6 months and on up!
