As mom’s we always ensure that we are taking care of everyone else’s needs, but when it comes to our own, we always come last. It’s not that we purposely neglect ourselves, sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done. So working out, putting on makeup and getting dressed, taking a hot bath, or curling up with a good book just don’t seem like an important task. As a matter of fact, they seem like impossible tasks to complete.
Whether you are a first-time mom or a veteran mom adding another baby to the family, it’s important that we also put in the effort to take care of ourselves, while cherishing this new stage in life.
Even if it’s something as simple as picking up your favorite (or new) book and take a few moments and read. This helps to reduce brain fog and stress. Plus if you are really into the book, it can help you get away just for a little bit.
Every mom needs a bit of TLC.
This month’s Babbleboxx is full of great products for new and expecting mothers, as well as baby!
Ginger Chews from Prince of Peace
During my pregnancies, morning sickness was a major issue for me. One of my secret weapons for dealing with it is ginger. When I was expecting ginger was great at supporting my digestion and can bring comfort to the stomach.
Did you know that ginger contains numerous anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds? These compounds can be beneficial to your health such as gingerols, beta-carotene, capsaicin, caffeic acid, curcumin, and salicylate. Prince of Peace Original Ginger Chews and Mango Chews both provide a delightful balance of sweet and spicy ginger taste with a pleasantly chewy texture. While the Mango Chews has a sweet mango flavor.
Soothie Snuggle & 9oz Natural Bottle from Phillips Avent
One item I have not been able to live without since Aaryn was a newborn was her Soothie Snuggle by Phillips Avent. The Soothie Snuggle is soft, lightweight and detachable to make cleaning simple. Plus the plush toy on the end has always kept her entertained, helping her find, hold and love their pacifier. When she is lying down the sealed weight that is sewn inside each limb, stabilizes the plush toy.
The Philips Avent Natural baby bottle has been a great addition to our breastfeeding journey. The 9oz bottle features an ergonomic shape for maximum comfort when she is holding and helps to reduce feeding issues.
Medipro Baby First Aid Pod from Me4Kidz
It’s a first aid kit at my fingertips! Medipro Baby is latex & allergy friendly and since we are on the go all of the time, I love how convenient and easy to carry Medipro BABY first aid pods are. There are 105 items neatly organized pods prepared for your basic first aid needs.

Anti-Aging Moisturizer from Vichy
My postpartum pregnancy hormones and age have left its mark on my skin! Since I have needed a completely new skincare routine, I have fallen in love with how Vichy’s LiftActiv Peptide-C is a paraben-free anti-aging moisturizer that helps to correct the visible signs of collagen loss on the skin.
It is formulated with natural origin ingredients like Plant-Based Phyto Peptides, Vitamin C, and Vichy Mineralizing Water. Since collagen constitutes 70-80% of the dry weight of skin, it naturally decreases with age, causing dullness, wrinkles and lack of firmness. Within 48 hours of using, I am able to see the visibly reduced wrinkles, my skin brightened and the diminished the look of discoloration.
