They believe that if they can positively affect just one life by selling a few pieces of great activewear, then they’ve done their job.

If you’re like most moms, you probably took your prenatal vitamin religiously during your pregnancy (well, when it didn’t make you gag during the throes of first-trimester morning sickness!).
Then after delivery, you were discharged from the hospital with a brand-new baby, super-sore, with a barely recognizable body — and an appointment to see your OB in 6 weeks. So, was your body just magically supposed to return to “normal” by then?
Not exactly — while your uterus has generally contracted back to its pre-pregnancy size by the 6-week check-up, it can take several months to shed the baby weight, or feel up for exercise or intimacy. And if you’re breastfeeding, your body’s hard work continues as it works to support your baby!
So what if we told you there was something that would help your beaten-up, postpartum body? Something that would give you more energy? That would help with healing, mood and even milk supply?
Postpartum vitamins, friends. These powerful pills are just as important as your prenatals — and here’s why.

Sneezing your head off? Watery eyes? Runny nose? Congested? We know the feeling.
Having all of these symptoms at once usually means you have allergies, whereas, if it were a cold, you would typically have each of these symptoms separately. Also, a cold commonly comes on during the winter months, and seasonal allergies are more common in the spring, summer and fall, since this is when trees, plants, and grasses are pollinating. Unfortunately though, indoor allergies can cause symptoms all year long.1
So, what do we do about these allergens making our life miserable?
First, we can start where we spend so much of our time. Today we discuss a few ways to reduce allergens in the home.
Did you know that the average kid between the ages of 2-6 spends about two hours a day in front of a screen (and, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, that’s a conservative number)? What’s more, the AAP estimates that kids ages 8-18 spend more than seven hours a day looking at screen media.
This summer, let’s shift the media imbalance, ok? Let’s pledge to get moving, go outside and make some lasting memories! Here are 10 screen-free activities you and your family can do this summer.
It is no secret that all living things need water to survive, including your children. Nowadays when you enter the grocery store you are surrounded by so many drink options. There are endless aisles of flavored waters, coconut waters, kombuchas, juices, sodas and so much more. With so many options it may be hard to steer your child in the direction of simple water. However, it is important as a parent that you understand the importance of getting your little ones on the water bandwagon. Water makes up more than half of your child’s body weight and is essential in helping them stay hydrated during these long and hot summer days. Instilling the early habit of drinking water is critical for your children’s great longterm health.
