Boost Your Breast Milk Supply With The Help Of Mommy Knows Best

This is a guest post provided by Mommy Knows Best

As a nursing mother, you’re busy trying to take care of your little one, along with all of your other day-to-day responsibilities. In all the rush, it can be easy to forget your own self-care and when you’re nursing, it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself. If your milk production is not where you want it to be, it can take a toll on you… Trying to figure out the right, natural, and healthy solution for you and your baby. Herbs like blessed thistle, fenugreek seed, and goat’s rue have become widely used because of their natural properties in helping boost lactation. The beauty and benefit of modern science is the natural herbs that have been used for generations to help boost a mother’s breast milk supply can be packed into one simple supplement. This is the key to the Lactation Supplement from Mommy Knows Best; By combining fenugreek seed, blessed thistle, and fennel seed, mothers who are breast-feeding can potentially see an increase in breast milk production in as little as 24 to 48 hours — safely and naturally.

Mommy Knows Best’s lactation supplement is produced in the United States, following strict GMP guidelines, and uses a special blend of high-quality herbs with no artificial ingredients. The supplement also includes the important omega-3 fatty acid, DHA, which is essential to your baby’s healthy brain and eye development. Breastfeeding mothers have reported to us that they’ve noticed an increase in milk production in as little as two days after using these supplements. One mom reported she had lactation failure, but after taking our Goat’s Rue Vegetarian Capsules, she went from 3 ozs per session to 7-8 ozs per session (every 3-4 hours). A mother to newborn twins shared with us recently that using our Lactation Supplement helped her produce 5 ounces more milk per day after only three days of taking the supplement.  In excitement, she told us “they were almost 100 percent breastfed today!” A week later, she reported, “I’m pumping way more, about 3-8 ounces daily, and can feel things filling up way sooner. I usually pump every 3-4 hours but can feel that I’m getting much fuller around 2-2 1/2 hours.” However, here at Mommy Knows Best we know that taking a supplement 4 times a day is not always the ideal situation. That’s why we made our Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookie Mix as a yummy and discreet way to improve a mom’s breast milk supply. This mix is super easy and quick to make; just add butter, water, and an egg to the mix and stir it up. Get them in the oven and a few minutes later, and you’ve got warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to enjoy. You may have to hide them from your family, though!aaaaNew mom J.Q. told us how the cookies helped her when she was having difficulty with her milk production, explaining “I’ve eaten these cookies the past few nights and I’ve already seen a bit of an increase in my milk production! These cookies are absolutely delicious, too!” Women have been using all these essential herbs for centuries to boost milk production for a reason — it gets results. And if it’s formulated in an allergy friendly supplement or cookie mix like we do here at Mommy Knows Best, all the better for you and your baby. You get the satisfaction of increasing your milk supply for your little one knowing you’re using a natural, time-tested, and allergen-free solution.

Custom Halloween Outfit from Simply ICB

Halloween is easily my favorite holiday! Spooky movies on tv, pumpkins everywhere, and super adorable costumes! Every year since my daughter has been born, we go all out for Halloween. A super cute costume for trick-or-treating and several Halloween-themed outfits for the entire month of October! This custom Halloween outfit from Simply ICB is perfect for our halloween festivities! As usual, the dress itself is fabulous quality and fit like a charm. No shrinkage after being washed. The saying “Most likely to wear the hat” is shown in adorable glitter vinyl with a witch’s hat off to the side. The colors and patterns go perfectly! With this particular outfit, Simply ICB included a matching hair bow and a pair of chevron leggings. The two accessories match the dress perfectly and are an adorable touch! I love that my daughter can wear this dress alone, or with the leggings to dress it up a bit. I can’t wait for her to wear it to her school Halloween carnival! My only disappointment with this outfit, is that Simply ICB didn’t make me one in an adult size! Seriously the cutest Halloween outfit in my daughter’s closet!

DIY Bath Time Fun from Kiss Naturals

My daughter Kinsley and I love doing DIY projects and doing them together makes for great bonding activities. That is why I couldn’t pass up these adorable DIY bath time sets from Kiss Naturals! We received a Bath Fizzie set, a Glycerine Soap set, and a Bubble Bath set. My daughter decided to whip out the bubble bath set first. The bubble bath set included everything we needed to create four custom bottles of bubble bath. This included four empty bottles, bubble gel, pink coloring, two scent oils, a measuring cup, and a small mixing spoon. Using the premixed bubble gel, the two fragrance options (watermelon and bubble gum), and the pink color we were able to mix and match our very own custom options! Not only was this kit a great bonding activity, but my daughter felt so accomplished after we were finished! She could hardly wait to use her creations in the tub the next night! I can’t wait to complete the other two sets soon! The bath fizzie set comes with everything Kinsley needs to make 8 of her very own bath bombs, and the glycerine soap kit comes with enough material to make 16 individual soaps! Kiss Naturals also offers other award-winning kits such as lip balms and face paint, however I decided to keep everything bath related this time around. I can’t wait to see what kind of creations we come up with next!

Design & Drill® Flower Power Studio™

I am all for teaching my daughter that she can be whatever she wants to be. That’s why I am okay with her dressing up as a firefighter, or driving her babies around in a dump truck. Most toys like this are normally targeted at little boys, so when I spotted the Design & Drill® Flower Power Studio™, I couldn’t pass it up. This set is perfect for allowing little girls to learn about tools! This set includes a fold-up flower board, a power drill, 60 bolts, 6 designer plates, a butterfly clasp, a phillips bit, a flower bit, and a guide with 12 patterns. The drill required 3AA batteries, but other than that it was ready-to-go out of the box! 20170729_171553.jpg

My daughter couldn’t wait to get her hands on this set! The kid-friendly power drill was extremely easy for her to use, and the bolts went into the flower board extremely easily. There is a small switch on the back that allows my daughter to put the power drill in reverse to remove the bolts, or forward to drill the bolts in. The bolts weren’t extremely small, which allowed my daughter to get a good grip on them while drilling. I love how this little set sparks her imagination.  Not only does she get to create her own awesome designs, but she is learning basic STEM concepts at the same time!  The best part about this set is that when my daughter is finished playing, we can simply fold it up and save it for next time! This makes cleanup a breeze! This Design & Drill® Flower Power Studio™ is absolutely perfect for kids 3-6! It is no wonder it won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award in 2015!

Saving Money With Skout Deals

THIS IS A SPONSORED POST

Shopping is by far one of my biggest weaknesses. That’s why anytime I can save a quick buck, I am all about it! I really hit the jackpot when I found Skout Deals! All I have to do is browse a category or search a keyword, and all nearby deals that fit my criteria appear! The best thing about Skout Deals, is that it is a mobile app! I don’t need to print the coupons out before I head to the store. I simply shop, pull up my app, and show it to the cashier!

I open the app and the shop I am in is usually right on top. There are currently over two hundred and twenty two thousand merchants in the Skout Deals database, with thousands more being added daily. That means I almost always find an awesome deal no matter where I am shopping.PicMonkey Collage.jpgMerchants in the Skout Deals database update update their deals frequently. This means that thousands of discounts, coupons, and freebies are always at my fingertip. Most deals are 25% off or more and the app automatically keeps track of my savings. After using it for a few months, I can literally watch the savings rack up! I can also bookmark deals to use later, and Skout Deals will email me when they are about to expire! Unlike other savings apps, these have a lot of my favorite brands! It is usually super hard to find deals for Target, but of course Skout Deals has seven of them just for this week! Some of their other merchants include Toys R Us, PetSmart, Zales, Victoria’s Secret, Sears, and even Pier 1 Imports! Have you ever tried to find a discount code for Victoria’s Secret?

How To Make Coffee Like A Barista From The Comfort Of Your Own Home

As a working mom, coffee daily is a necessity. I buy coffee from the local coffee shop at least five days a week (sometimes twice a day). At five dollars a cup, that puts me spending a minimum of $100 on coffee a month! That’s a lot of coffee. There came a point where I realized I shouldn’t be spending that much on coffee each month, and I needed to invest in my very own coffee system. I knew a regular coffee pot wouldn’t work since I also enjoy iced coffee and espresso depending on how I feel that morning. That is when I stumbled upon the Ninja® Coffee Brewer with Auto-iQ® One-Touch Intelligence and Thermal Flavor Extraction® Technology! Since Ninja is one of my favorite brands for kitchen appliances, I was excited to finally get my hands on one of their coffee brewers! 20170912_165057

Ninja® Coffee Brewer with Auto-iQ® One-Touch Intelligence and Thermal Flavor Extraction® Technology is like the Holy Grail of at home brewers! I was blown away at the amount of things it could do! This Ninja® Coffee Brewer came with a 43 oz. Glass Carafe, a Ninja Smart Scoop, a removable water reservoir and a recipe coffee inspiration guide. Depending on which model you order, there may also be a permanent filter which takes place of the paper filters. Immediately after setting this up, I got to work with experimenting, and was surprised to find that everything was extremely user-friendly! Set up took me less than five minutes and the user manual walked me through each step! On the very front of the machine there is a clock, a power button, a delay brew button, size options, brew options, a drip stop indicator, a stay warm indicator, and an intelligent clean cycle indicator. Everything I could possibly need was right in the front and clearly labeled.20170912_165103Auto-iQ® One-Touch Intelligence gave me the option me to choose a size and a brew. Sizing options allowed me to brew directly into a cup, a travel mug,  half carafe or a full carafe. So I don’t need different machines to make different size coffee portions! The different brew styles allowed me to brew a classic cup of coffee, a rich cup of coffee, iced coffee, and specialty drinks! Can you say Triple Espresso?! This was one of my favorite features the Ninja® Coffee Brewer offered! The Auto-iQ® One-Touch Intelligence knew how to deliver the perfect amount of water and temperature I needed without the need to measure or refill my reservoir! Since this brewer offers such high-end technology I don’t have to constantly replace pods for a single cup of coffee. That will save me a ton of time and money! ImageI have had this Ninja® Coffee Brewer for a little over two weeks now, and I am still experimenting with new and exciting combinations! Not only am I saving money by being my own barista, but I am constantly impressing my family with the drink options I am able to offer from home! My family and I are simply blown away by the Ninja® Coffee Brewer.

P. King Duckling: Seize The Day!

P. King Duckling has been one of our favorite animated cartoons since its debut on Disney Junior. P. King and his friends always seem to be going on silly little adventures, some of which don’t turn out so well. My daughter has yet to miss a new episode. When we heard there would be a P. King Duckling DVD, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it! P. King Duckling: Seize The Day was just as exciting as we had imagined! P.King and all of his friends kept us laughing throughout the entire DVD and of course we had to watch it on repeat! This quirky little show has to be one of my favorites as a parent. Although my daughter thinks it is silly (which it is), P. King really tackles some great lessons such as telling the truth and doing the right thing. P. King Duckling: Seize The Day is a must watch for everyone in the family! PKDSTD.Cover.72dpi

DVD Synopsis:  Meet P. King, a slightly hapless but intrepid young duck, and his two best friends, Chumpkins (a sarcastic pig) and Wombat (who helps P. King with his schemes even though she knows better)! Together, they work to “seize the day” – which always leads to wild adventures and hilarious consequences!
