I am excited to tell you about some great breastfeeding products offered by Fairhaven Health that are going to be part of the Ultimate Breastfeeding Prize Pack here at Happenings of the Harper Household. If you aren’t familiar with Fairhaven Health they are trusted source for fertility, pregnancy, and nursing products. And they rank super high in my book because with the help of their OvaCue Fertility Monitor we conceived Baby Girl – really, check out the blog post where I talk all about it! But today I’m focusing on Fairhaven’s breastfeeding products.
I received a bottle of Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamins and a jar of Nipple Nurture Balm to try out.
Breastfeeding can take a lot out of you – I remember when Dilly and Sugar were first born those lil buggers seemed to want to eat nonstop. And since breastfeeding can literally drain a momma it’s important that she eats a healthy well-balanced diet, stays hydrated, and gets plenty of rest…. though that last one can be hard to come by once you have more than one munchkin. Anyhow… even with doing all of these things it is important to take a multivitamin as well. Many moms continue to take their prenatal vitamin thinking this has all the vitamins they need for breastfeeding since it was what they took while pregnant – in fact I was one of those moms when I had Dilly and Sugar, but I am glad that I have now learned that there is a better multivitamin out there for breastfeeding moms – Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin.
The Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin provides comprehensive vitamin and mineral support, including 100% Daily Value of several vitamins and minerals, and extra amounts of key vitamins known to be especially important for lactating women, including Vitamin D and the B vitamins. I included a nickel in the above picture to give you an idea of the size of the capsules. I know that I sometimes have a difficult time swallowing larger size capsules, but I definitely think I will be able to handle these without a problem. Fairhaven Health also carries another multivitamin for breastfeeding moms, Nursing Blend – Breastfeeding Supplement, which also contains all the important vitamins and minerals that a breastfeeding momma needs and a herbal blend to help increase milk supply. Since I could feed a whole litter of babies with no problem, hehe, I decided to stick with the Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin – no extra milk necessary here.
Even though breastfeeding is a beautiful thing it can sometimes be brutal to your nipples. Especially in those early weeks when mama and baby are getting the hang of things. Luckily at Fairhaven Health you can grab some Nipple Nurture Balm that is designed to soothe, protect, and heal sore or cracked nipples. Plus it is 100% organic and doesn’t contain any harsh additives, preservatives or lanolin which makes this balm safe for both moms and babies. Nipple Nurture Balm combines organic herbal ingredients with natural moisturizers to provide soothing relief, heal affected areas, and even prevent cracks from reappearing. I definitely like the texture of this balm because it absorbs easily without leaving a greasy feeling behind and it seems that a little bit will go a long way. This is definitely a hospital bag must have!
