BODY | SUPPLEMENTS
IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIND THE RIGHT COMBINATION OF SUPPLEMENTS THAT GIVE MY BODY WHAT IT NEEDS. I HAD SOME THAT I TOOK PRE-PREGNANCY, A DIFFERENT BUNCH FOR PRENATAL, AND NEW ONES, POSTNATAL. I'VE SPOKEN A LOT ABOUT THE CHANGES I EXPERIENCED WITH MY HAIR DURING AND AFTER MY PREGNANCY. COLLAGEN POWDER HAS HELPED SO MUCH TO BRING MY HAIR BACK TO LIFE. MAGNESIUM IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES, TAKEN EITHER DAYTIME OR BEFORE BED. IT HELPS TO CALM AND RELAX ME, AND IS ALSO SO GREAT FOR DIGESTION. TAKING IMMUNE SUPPORT SUPPLEMENTS IS GOOD FOR KEEPING MY BODY'S DEFENSE STRONG. AND I ALWAYS HAVE MY 8 GREENS ON HAND. IT GIVES ME A GOOD BOOST OF GREENS THAT STARTS MY DAY RIGHT.
BEAUTY | HAIR
TO PUT IT SIMPLY, I HAD NO IDEA THAT PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING WOULD CHANGE MY HAIR SO MUCH. WHEN I WAS ABOUT 4 MONTHS INTO BREASTFEEDING MY SON, MY HAIR STARTED COMING OUT IN CLUMPS. IT WAS SO SHOCKING, ESPECIALLY AFTER 9 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY, WHEN MY HAIR AND NAILS GREW FASTER THAN THEY EVER HAD BEFORE. I FELT SO BEAUTIFUL POSTPARTUM, THOUGH SO MUCH CHANGED, AND IT WAS A VERY HARD ADJUSTMENT BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. FOR NEW MAMAS OUT THERE: IT DOES GET BETTER! THE SHEDDING STOPPED. YOUR BABY HAIRS GROW BACK, GIVING YOU A VERY ATTRACTIVE NEW HALO OF A HAIRLINE OF SMALL CURLS AROUND YOUR HEAD. USING A GOOD NATURAL STRENGTHENING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER HAS DEFINITELY HELPED. SOME BRANDS I LOVE INCLUDE BRIOGEO AND RAHUA. BOTH ARE SULFATE AND PHTHALATE FREE.
BABY | SPECIALTY SKIN CARE
IT TOOK A VERY LONG TIME FOR US TO FIND PRODUCTS THAT WORK ON OUR SON'S SKIN. HE HAS MINOR ECZEMA WHICH NEITHER MYSELF OR MY HUSBAND EVER HAD, SO WE HAD TO EDUCATE OURSELVES QUICKLY ABOUT WHAT BRANDS ARE BEST FOR HIM. WE USE MOSTLY NATURAL PRODUCTS ON HIM, BUT WE OF COURSE DO NOT HESITATE IF SOMETHING ELSE IS WHAT HE NEEDS. DAILY, WE USE NATURAL BRANDS EARTH MAMA AND BAEO. BAEO WAS STARTED BY THE SEN MAMAS TERESA PALMER AND SARA OLSEN. THEIR PRODUCTS ARE SO GREAT AND GENTLE FOR BABY.
