When you become a pregnant with a precious little life, your body no longer belongs just to you. Your body is a temple and you are sharing that temple with the tiny human you are growing. It is up to you, Mama, to protect and nurture that special little person who is trusting you to grow his or her body. You must not only nourish your body with healthful foods, but that you also make sure to use products that are safe for pregnancy!
You need to steer clear of anything that contains harmful chemicals. This also important during breastfeeding. Any product that you use on your skin can be transferred to your baby through breastfeeding.
Being a Mama is hard work! And you DO sweat, and you DO get smelly, and it is nice to find products to help you to smell fresh.
However, please be aware that the chemicals in your deodorant can get into your breast milk. After all, your underarms are in very close proximity to your breast tissue!
Thankfully, Earth Mama Deodorants are formulated to be safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding. AND they come in a cute set of four minis!
Earth Mama’s mini deodorants give you four flavors in one box! They are also travel-savvy and very cute. Pop one in your purse, the diaper bag, your gym bag or stuff ‘em in stockings with a falala – they are just that good. You get all four flavors in one fun-filled box! Refreshing ginger-lime GingerAid Deodorant, tangerine-y Bright Citrus Deodorant, naturally unscented Natural Non-Scents Deodorant, and fresh, soothing Calming Lavender Deodorant.
Think you're too sensitive for natural deodorants with baking soda? You got another think comin’! This formula was made for extra sensitive skin with the perfect balance of baking soda and magnesium. Just enough to work, not enough to hurt sensitive skin. NO propylene glycol, artificial fragrance, parabens or aluminum. Dermatologist tested and clinically tested for irritation. Better than natural – organic!
Your skin soaks it all in.
So toxic ingredients in deodorant?
That’s a hard no.

All of my babies were breastfed, and thankfully, my daughter is breastfeeding her baby who was born last month. Yes, baby Reylin is my first grand daughter. We are so blessed!
My daughter, Cassidy, is a wonderful mother. She is using Earth Mama’s deodorants to stay fresh. Cassidy says that she loves them. They keep her feeling fresh. She is thankful for that, because sometimes new mamas don't get a lot of time for regular showers. Each fragrance is uplifting and helps keep baby blues at bay, and the formulas do not irritate her sensitive skin. With these four minis, it is very convenient to have one in the bathroom, one in the diaper bag, one in the car and one in her purse. (Mommies sweat a lot.)
Best of all, using Earth Mama's deodorant gives Cass one less thing to worry about, so that she has more time to focus on her sweet baby girl.
No chemicals for this precious angel!

Sometimes I get utterly sick of my cleavage trying to 'peek' out of my shirts and get a look at the world. Believe me, I DO NOT wish these boobies on anyone so I fight the potential sight of my cleavage showing tooth and nail. And with everything fashionable out there, most women's tops are meant to 'show off' her stuff. Nope, those days are behind me:) Unless, of course I get myself a 'liftie.' Let's just say, breastfeeding four kids has left me um........deflated.
Thankfully, I found a company online who have created a much needed solution for women like myself.
What is Chickies Cleavage Coveage all about?
from their website:
'Chickies is a product that will change how women layer their clothes forever. Chickies are meant to be worn over any bra with two straps and wrap smoothly around your back for a secure feel. Whether a standard, halter, racerback or nursing bra...Chickies make the latest fashions possible with a little bit of modesty.'
I was sent a black Chickies Cleavage Cover, and immediately put it to great use. It was very easy to use, not at all complicated, which was a plus for me. All I had to do was slip it on like a sports bra and snap the tiny buttons around the bra I already had on to secure it. So awesome that it can be worn on top of the bra I wear. I was so thrilled that I could actually lean forward without scaring anyone!
Look: This is the same model of Chickies I was sent, but unfortunately, that woman is not me:( I certainly wish I looked like that! Maybe some day!
They come in many great colors and fabrics. From sporty to sexy! Check them out here!
Chickies holiday colors and styles will be the perfect fashion accessory for all your party ensembles that need a little extra coverage. Look for new styles and colors like shimmers in gold and silver, sexy lace tanks and more.
Disclosure: I recieved a sample of this product and these opinions are my own.
I have a headache. All I have been wanting to do this evening is sleep. I sent my husband shopping for the birthday cake and gifts for my little Braxton who turns three tomorrow. Oh my sweet baby!!!! It seems only yesterday that I concieved him without knowing it.
And yes, he still breastfeeds! I don't know how that will ever end. Sometimes it gets to be overwhelming when he wants to do it all day long, or all night long......but other than that it is the most precious time in our lives. I don't want to let go of it, Braxton does not want to let go of it. And if it will get him through yet another flu season, then that is very well worth it to me. He has hardly ever been sick and has NEVER vomited. Breastfeeding is a personal choice and other than our boy hogging up our queen sized bed, it is a bond that I love having with my sweet 'baby' boy. He will grow up much to quickly and I will miss feeling his downy soft baby hair caressing my lips and cheeks as he nuses. I had better stop typing this now, because the thought of him growing up is gonna make me cry.
It is a lovely evening here in Estacada. My husband is outside in our gorgeous back yard playing or I should say practicing golf. It is soooo nice to have a property big enough for that. My eldest son, Jonathan isn't that interested in golf, so he was just out there hanging with his Dad. My daughters have been enjoying climbing trees and picking the newly ripening cherries. I am so glad they still enjoy playing outside.
Poor little Braxton is asleep in my arms, which is peaceful to me, as he has been sick with a cough, runny nose and fever for about 48 hours and has been so very clingy. When he is sick, he only wants his mama. It is an honor to be his mommy and to be 'wanted' like this because they do grow up and soon, he won't want me at all.
This poor kid has diarreah, too. Sitting in his diaper as we speak, but he is sleeping and I need this peaceful moment although it reeks, but I have been unable to use the internet to catch up on my Mommy Blog for a few days. Plus Braxton has huge tantrums when I change his diaper, so I will wait a bit longer. He needs to sleep. He is still nursing and seems to only want my nipple in his mouth for comfort when he is ill. I have soooo much milk, and I am pretty happy that I can nourish him, especially when he will not touch food. My milk comes in every hour or so, so my shirt will be wet with the telltale signs of two damp spots if I go too long. This especially gets embarrassing for me in stores, so I am constantly pushing on my breats to stop the 'gushes' in public and I am certain it looks as though I am fondling myself at times.
Boy, Braxton is stinky, but I love this special little boy and I will see him through his sickness...no matter what it takes.
