Lil Mixins Infant Peanut Powder

Did you know that babies aren’t born with food allergies? They simply develop overtime as their immune system grows, which is why it’s best to introduce certain foods to their diet at an early age to help their bodies learn to tolerate them!

That’s where Lil Mixins comes in! They’ve made a specific 100% organic peanut powder for babies that can be started at age 4 months (They also have egg powder!). As soon as your baby is ready for solids you can slowly begin adding it to their foods, milk, or formula! Unlike other peanut powder, Lil Mixins won’t turn into peanut butter when mixed with foods, making it easier for them to get down and digest!

As a family with gluten-sensitivity I want to help my twin boys’ with a fighting chance at being food allergy free! Only one more month until I can begin this process and I did the same with Hudson – But I didn’t have a formula specifically made for babies! I can’t wait to try it!

You can serve it to them three times a week for regular exposure and continue until they’re a year old – By then they should be old enough to start eating peanut butter and hopefully be peanut allergy free! It’s proven that 100 servings of a food between the ages of 4 months to one year is the best way to teach their bodies to tolerate it. This information is crucial for every parent and with it we can help fight back against food allergies – One baby at a time!

Zafooz

Being the Mom of three boys now it’s necessary for me to take time for myself to breathe and recenter. But I’ve never stopped to think of how my older children may be needing the same thing. With the new household dynamic with the twins here it can be stressful on my three year old to share attention and constantly hear crying.. So I realized I needed to get something for my sweet boy that’ll allow him to also have some meditation time for himself.

That’s when I found Zafooz. It’s a spirit animal cushion that helps children focus on mindfulness and meditation.. I feel it’s as important for them to have time to slow down and just be within themselves as it is for us.

Since the twins were born Hudson has had his Lotus Ladybug with him everywhere throughout the house. He takes it outside when the sun is getting low and back up to bed with him when it’s time to unwind.. There are a few different stuffed animal friends to choose from and each one has their own description and children’s emotional/spiritual needs. It’s fantastic!

Along with the cushion, Zafooz has guided meditations on the their website to help your children ease into their relaxation mode. It’s been such a wonderful, peaceful friend for Hudson and I’m very thankful we found it! Because again, I feel it’s just as important for them to have self time and these cushion allow them a comfortable, safe space to do so.

Mama Guilt When Pregnant

I realized the main three niches of my blog are food, lifestyle and family and I haven’t touched on family in awhile. So I wanted to talk about something that a lot of parents may be feeling – I know I certainly was.

Parent Guilt for adding an additional sibling into the family (Especially when you’ve got an only child). When I first found out I was pregnant I was elated.. So excited to be bringing another wonderful soul into this world who would hopefully carry my values, my love for God and my humor 😉 But then I began to feel a deep pain for my Hudson. He’s got other siblings on his Dad’s side but they’re part time and he’s got his Mommy 100% of the time. It’s been Mommy and Hudson for 3 whole years and it’s been amazing..

But now it won’t be.. And in our situation it’ll be TWICE the sharing now that we found out we’re having twins. I spent many a nights crying myself to sleep.. It hurts to say but I was no longer excited for my babies anymore, because I felt like I was completely betraying my little boy.

But after speaking with other parents who had multiple children it always came down to the same answer.. Your heart finds a way. All of the anxiety and pain goes away as soon as you meet your babies and you realize you have way more room in your heart than you thought was humanly possible and when your little sees their new lifelong best friend(s) they don’t see it as a competition for your love (Well maybe a little, but not to the extreme you imagined 😉 ) but instead they see an exciting new chapter with new loved ones.

That has completely eased my mind. Hudson is so in love with my belly and talks about his little brothers often as if he can’t wait to meet them.. And because of the advice and my son’s adoration it’s completely cured my Mommy Guilt. So don’t worry Mommy, or Daddy.. It’ll be okay, you’re capable of tremendous amounts of love and the only thing you can do is continue to tell your little how much you love them and always will.

I’m supposed to be on light bed rest but instead I’ve been taking Hudson out and spending as much time with him as I can so he knows that even though Mommy is exhausted with these babies that he’s still important to me and always will be.

Parenting is the most rewarding and scary job in the world – But I wouldn’t trade it in for the world. So let go of your guilt.. You’re killing it!

Twins!

Hey y’all – I am so sorry for the long hiatus.. It’s been a rough few months. We found out we’re pregnant with twins!! For the first 2 1/2 months I was so so incredibly sick and it finally let up! I’ve got two healthy babies in there and am now back on track with gluten free paleo eating so will be posting more often again and can’t wait to reconnect with y’all!
