Have any of you tried these?? I am obsessed! I used them with Genevieve (our middle child) and now again with baby Giorgia! They take so many steps out of pumping and bottle feeding, and save you pouring and losing precious fats that stick to the bottle when you transfer to bags!
When you go to make a bottle, again, no pouring of losing fats, the bag becomes the bottle!!! So that reduces gas too! They are just awesome.

1 week old (back of her head, and top of her head)
7 weeks old (can you even find them?)
While I cannot claim that this will work for everyone, I feel the need to share because this has been remarkable!!!
Our third daughter, Giorgia, was born with 2 hemangiomas on her scalp... they're not dangerous, but they're also not something that you really want on your perfect newborn.
Hemangiomas, or infantile hemangiomas, are noncancerous growths of blood vessels. They’re the most common growths or tumors in children. They usually grow for a period of time and then subside without treatment. They don’t cause problems in most infants. However, some hemangiomas may open and bleed or ulcerate. This may be painful. Depending on their size and location, they may be disfiguring. Additionally, they may occur with other abnormalities of the central nervous system or spine.
Anyway, in my research I found that they're supposed to go away on their own between the ages of 5 and 10 YEARS... well, I didn't want to wait that long so of course I started experimenting. And my first choice was Rejuvenique Oil! These are the results after 7 WEEKS!
The results were noticeable after 2 weeks and have continued to improve dramatically since then!
This is crazy! It was supposed to continue to get bigger until she was between 6 and 10 months, but it was almost gone at 1 month old, and they are now barely little pink spots at 7 weeks! I am seriously blown away once again by the power of this magic oil.
I am a HUGE advocate of postpartum belly binding. Not only does it help you get back down to size faster, but it just feels good! So supportive and kind of like make-shift abs - because we all know those are shot after you give birth ;)
It also helps repair diastisis recti that I get during pregnancy. So its an all around win!
This is my favorite one at the moment, I have about 5 different ones, but for the price and customizability, you can't beat it! It comes with 3 pieces, I am only wearing 2 in the picture. You can really make it fit the way you want. Its great!

When a dear friend of mine suggested Moringa, I had to do some research, but the more I read, the more I loved! This is a nutrient rich, antioxidant packed, anti-inflammatory, glucose balancing, heart healthy, cognitive improving, liver protecting, antibacterial SUPER FOOD!
Used for everything from diabetes to improving milk supply during breastfeeding, you'd be hard pressed to find a supplement that can do it all like moringa! I love this brand because its organic, and quite cost effective!
Packed with over 90 essential ingredients including 20+ types of amino acids, 40+ antioxidants, 35+ anti-inflammatory compounds, key vitamins, minerals, protein, Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils and phytonutrients. Few foods can match the nutrition provided by Moringa.
Again, I am 37.5 weeks pregnant and facing induction in 10 days... so I am doing everything in my power to get this little lady to come on her own. Besides Evening Primrose Oil, I also drink gallons of Red Raspberry Leaf Tea! Thats why I recommend the 6 pack... I drink maybe 4-8 teabags a day!
This is not intended as medical advice, but drinking this tea has been immeasurably helpful in my past pregnancies. Both labors were easy, smooth, and FAST!!
Besides toning the uterus and strengthening it for labor, this Raspberry Leaf Tea also:
Supports healthy menstruation and may be used for menstrual cramps
Since I am due with baby #3 in just a few short days, I figured I would share some of my most favorite end of pregnancy must haves. Evening Primrose is one! The jury is out on this one, and this is not medical advice... But I use it primarily for cervical rippening aka... getting read for labor.
The prostiglandins in EPO are thought to help get the cervix soft for dilation, and it has been immeasurably helpful for me with each of my babies.
Aside from labor, EPO has been found to be helpful with:
Hormone balance - PMS symptoms, menopause
Skin issues - eczema, psoriasis, etc
Nerve Damage caused by diabetes
I enjoy this brand for the following reasons:
FEATURES: 1300mg of Pure Evening Primrose Oil (EPO). Rich in Omega-6 and 9 each liquid softgel is guaranteed to Contain 10% GLA (Gamma-linolenic acid).*
NATURAL: Plant Derived, hand harvested and Cold Pressed from the seed of the Evening Primrose Plant.
Pregnancy is rough... even for someone who carries small like me. I get the super amazing complication of something called Diastasis Recti - simply put, my abs actually split apart. Its awesome (sarcasm heavy today).
Anyway, Aside from wearing uncomfortable braces all day, I find that KT Tape is SO helpful. It works on the fascia layer by subtly supporting the muscles. You can use it for so many things. I am not a KT expert, and this particular taping job isn't the best example, but you can youtube so many ways to use it!
Today, and for the next few weeks, it will definitely be one of my favorite things!

SO, I am always REALLY good about applying a lotion sunscreen every morning after I wash my face. But I am not good about reapplication when I am out in the world (aka the sun)!
I have pretty bad melasma from being pregnant 700 times lol, and I desperately need to protect my face. I just don't like to reapply lotion over my make-up, and I don't like to carry lotion around with me all day.
Thats when I found this convenient powder!! So easy to apply, so easy to transport, and has the added benefit of reducing shine!
I also use it on Genevieve's baby head while her hair gets thicker to protect her scalp!
Brush On Block contains the naturally-occuring active sunscreen ingredients titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, to provide full-coverage, invisible, natural mineral sunscreen that you simply brush on. No more messy, greasy lotions, sticks and sprays. It offers a fast, convenient and effective way to protect everyone's skin from the sun during all their everyday activities.
I am a self proclaimed attachment parent... for the most part. But yes, I wear my babies, a lot. And for a long time ;)
When Genevieve was born, I knew that I would have to figure out something for the summer months because we live in the water! She was SUCH a peanut that she would still be too small for any floatation devices even at 6 months...
Then I found this gem!!! And, after it arrives, like we always do, we lived in the water... and even got in some great naps ;)
Excellent warm weather baby sling. Perfect for everyday use, in the shower, and at the pool, beach, or water park. 5 colors available, please click the Color Option on the top right to choose.

Had a request for larger sized lotion... and after some market testing, I found this one from Alba Botanica! It's super moisturizing without being greasy! And at $10 a bottle, the price point is killer!
