Tip 4: Use BPA free and Non-toxic bottles

Discover healthy bottles that are safe for your baby to drink out of:

 


longer-banner-EHB

Use BPA free bottles

glass-bottle-250-plainBPA Free Glass Baby feeding bottles are eco-friendly and these lead free glass bottles don’t contain nasty toxins. Baby Nova glass bottles are made from highest quality Czech glass and are toughened to ensure a long life. BPA Free Glass Baby Bottles are Bisphenol-A (BPA) free.

This BPA Free Glass Baby Bottle comes with a round, slow flow silicone teat, polypropylene screw-on collar, lid and bottle cap for easy transport of liquids. The teat has an anti-colic valve.

To clean bottles and parts, simply boil in a pot with plenty of water or sterilise in a conventional steriliser.

Caring for your glass bottles

BPA Free Glass Baby Bottles may be safely washed in your dishwasher, but please note that the harsh chemical cleaners often used in dishwasher cleaning powder may cause the inks to degrade over time.

Please make sure that BPA Free Glass Baby Bottles are not placed under extreme temperature changes, for example placing a cold bottle into boiling water, as this might make the glass crack. Baby Nova glass bottles are heat resistant to sudden temperature changes of 175 degrees Celsius, but please do take care.

As with any drinking glass, you should check your glass feeding bottles for chips and cracks and if found, discard the bottle straight away for the safety of your baby.

Use non-toxic baby bottles

non toxic baby bottlesFree of –  Bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, nitrosamines, lead, PVC, PET, Tritan and biologically harmful chemicals.

No Spill nipple!!! – features our cross cut design. The design also mimics natural breastfeeding as it requires your little one to nurse to receive fluid.

Anti-colic nipple – helps reduce incidence of gas and spit up. Unique one-piece design eliminates cleaning headaches and tricky assembly. No extra parts to lose.

Extra soft, medical grade silicone – provides easier transition from breastfeeding to bottle feeding.

Comes with slow flow nipples – Designed for 0 to 3 months.

The transformational line – The thinkbaby system allows parents to transform baby bottles to our award winning Sippy Cup through purchase of the Conversion Kit. The system saves parents money and the environment from discarding baby bottles when it’s time for the next stage in feeding.

Comes with Travel Top – reduces chance of spillage during travel and protects the nipple from coming into contact with foreign substances.

Dishwasher safe (Top rack recommended).

Eco-friendly – Baby bottles are made from materials that can be recycled after use. Does not leach chemicals to adversely affect the environment.

Pocketbook friendly – the products are made to fit all pocketbooks.

Why a baby bottle?

 When we introduced the thinkbaby over 4 years ago 95% of the baby bottles on the market were made of polycarbonate which contains BPA. Initially, we attempted to convince the major companies to move off of polycarbonate, but after being unsuccessful we launched thinkbaby and thinksport to address the concern of chemicals leaching from consumer products. We started with the baby bottle because polycarbonate was ubiquitous across the industry. As little ones systems are still in a state of development they have very little defense against foreign chemicals.

 While many companies have emerged to offer BPA Free baby bottles, many bottles not only still contain BPA despite saying BPA Free (see Health Canada study), but many companies have also landed on untested materials just because the material claims to be free of BPA. thinkbaby utilizes the precautionary principle in the creation of all of our products. We don’t jump to “new” materials without doing the requisite testing to ensure that we haven’t landed on another “BPA-like” material. When we target a product segment that concerns us, we ask the question, “How can we make the product line Safe. Functional. Sustainable.” thinkbaby and thinksport’s focus has led us to be the first company to span safe consumer products ranging from baby to adults.

This ensures that the probiotic strains are released in the gut while still alive and are able to colonize the gut wall. The intestinal flora is made up of many kinds of living bacteria that have a symbiotic relationship with the rest of the body.

Probiotics have been linked with successful rebuilding of friendly gut flora and which are available in supplement form.

Reflexology is a non-evasive treatment that doesn’t tickle the feet. It stimulates the vital organs, thus helping them to work better with increased blood flow. There are so many ways to take care of your feet from weekly soaking, reflexology treatments and pedicures etc. During my 11 years as a Reflexologist, I have treated many pregnant women.  Symptoms such as reflux, constipation, morning sickness and stress and anxiety can be reduced with a treatment. Reflexology is also extremely beneficial during labor or to bring on labor when overdue as it helps to keep mom and baby in a more relaxed frame of mind.

Soul Fire Organic Cocoa Nibs

The South American Mayans, Aztecs and Incas tell of how the Cacao tree was a gift from a Divine source, and therefore held as sacred. Aztec legends state that Quetzlcoatl, the good and wise God of wind and life brought with him the seeds from his garden to Earth, and hence came the Cacao Tree.

Today, Cocoa’s delicious fame has spread across the entire world, and recent research has confirmed the enormous nutritional benefits it has to sustain health and wellbeing. With almost 4000 different compounds, it is one of the highest sources of nutrition in the plant world, including iron, magnesium and antioxidants. It also has two “bliss” chemicals, which are naturally produced in the brain when we are ‘in love”,  an amino acid called Phen-ylethylamine, and a neurotransmitter called Anandamide, so named after the Sanskrit word Ananda, meaning Happiness, Joy & Bliss. Cocoa is great for reducing stress, and has a rejuvenating effect.

Soul Fire – Organic Cocoa Beans 100g

Cocoa beans have quantities of Tryptophan and Phenylethylamine, amino acid precursors to protein building, and a neurotransmitter, Anandamide (or the “Bliss” chemical. Ananda, from the Sanskrit word referred to in yogic traditions meaning bliss, joy or happiness). All contribute to the ‘feel good’, happy feeling. They also support the adrenals and help increase focus and awareness. Phenylethylamine is created naturally and released in the brain when we are “In Love”. Tryptophan is the precursor to Serotonin; which influences moods and sleep. Neurotransmitters are electrochemical communicators to support the nervous and endocrine systems, along with emotional/mental balance. Phenylalanine forms norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine and tyramine and is important for memory, alertness and learning. Also for pain, headaches, arthritic conditions. Cocoa is remarkably rich in Magnesium (highest in any food), which is good for muscles, bones, nervous system and brain chemistry, and it is a very helpful support for women during times of menstruation and cramping. Magnesium is a muscle relaxant and alleviates stress.

Cocoa is also one of the highest plant sources of Iron, which is required for energy metabolism and oxygen carrying via haemoglobin in the blood. It is also a structural component of cytochromes in electron transport. Part of its enzyme and metabolic function is to assist in neurotransmitter synthesis, phagocyte antimicrobial activity, liver detoxification and synthesis of DNA, collagen and bile acids.

Cocoa is also very high in Sulphur, which is good for strong and healthy skin, hair and nails; a liver detoxifier, and supports healthy pancreas functioning. Some reports say that Cacao is so high in Sulphur that it also supports the detoxification of mercury. Cocoa has Calcium, which is alkalizing, helps with blood, nerve transmission, bones, and muscles. Regulates the heartbeat. Help enzyme systems to produce acetylcholine, norepinephrine and serotonin. Opposite of Magnesium, as it is contraction. Cocoa has Phosphorous, which is vital to energy production ATP, and it utilizes CHO and fats for energy production and protein synthesis, and production of nucleic acids in DNA/RNA to carry genetic coding for all cells. There is Lignin in Cocoa, which inhibits high blood pressure and cholesterol formation. This thins the blood and reduces platelet aggregation. Cocoa is low in fat, where as chocolate is higher in fat. It has a good balanced amount of EFA’s increase HDL decrease LDL. Cocoa contains Monoamine Oxidase Enzyme Inhibitors, which helps to minimize or balance appetite, and it also facilitates youthening and rejuvenation. It is also excellent for skin and hair.

Tip 4: Discover the benefits of Camu Camu

Discover the benefits of Camu Camu for you and your baby!

 13870

 

Raw Organic Camu Camu Powder from Peru. The fruit contains powerful phytochemicals with health benefits, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and high amounts of Vitamin C second only to Gubinge.

“Camu Camu (Mycaria Dubia) is a bushy tree that grows in black water rivers, especially along abandoned watercourses known as cochas. Each year, the river floods, bringing nutrients to the soil and avoiding the depletion associated with typical farming methods; these are ecosystems of great social and economic importance to the Amazon jungle in Peru. Growing in these swampy areas, it takes years for the tree to become mature enough to bear fruit. The fruit of the tree is approximately 2 centimeters in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp.

Camu Camu is traditionally made into a juice by people of the rainforest to support the immune system, ward off viral infections, and help maintain optimal health, especially under conditions of stress and anxiety, which tend to deplete the immune system. It also contains bioflavonoids, the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, plus considerable quantities of thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. Camu Camu has been used by ancient cultures to help promote healthy gums, eyes, and skin and also support the functions of the brain (nervous system) and heart (circulatory system).

Our Camu Camu is 100% pure Certified Organic, and contains no manioc root powder. We’re happy to report that our Camu Camu is no longer spray dried, as Australian law now allows us to import 100% organic Camu Camu pulp, dehydrated at low temperatures. This results in a Vitamin C percentage of over 12%. What’s more, since our Camu Camu is a whole food in its full-spectrum natural form, your body can absorb the nutrients contained within much more effectively as compared to a synthetic supplement.” Loving Earth website

Tip 6: Discover the benefits of black tahini for your pregnancy

Discover the benefits of Black Tahini for you and your baby!

 

13876

Black Tahini is a chocolate grey to black colour with a very similar taste to hulled white tahini. A favourite choice of sesame seed for many.

Black sesame seeds are an excellent source of magnesium and calcium. A 1/4 cup serving provides: – 126 mg of magnesium, or 32% of the Recommended Daily Value (DV), and – 351 mg of calcium (35% of the DV). That is more nutritious than a cup of milk. Unhulled tahini offers more nutrients than hullled versions. The nutrients of sesame seeds are better absorbed if they are ground or pulverized before consumption, as in tahini – a delicious creamy paste from the traditional slow stonegrinding of sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are exceptionally rich in iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, and calcium (90 mg per tablespoon of unhulled seeds, 10 mg of hulled), and contain vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin E (tocopherol). They contain lignans, including unique content of sesamin, which are phytoestrogens with antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Among edible oils from six plants, sesame oil had the highest antioxidant content. Sesame seeds also contain phytosterols associated with reduced levels of blood cholesterol.

Use: As a spread, eaten direct by the spoonful, or add to protein shakes, ice creams, desserts, baby foods, soups, dressings, sauces. Middle Eastern dishes or combine with honey.

Ingredients: Slow stoneground unhulled black sesame seeds.
May contain traces of other nuts and seeds.

Tip 8: Here are 12 great oils for pregnancy from Young Living

 Healing RoomPregnancy can be a fun and exciting time for mom as she brings a child into the world. It may cause different feelings to surface and emotions to change. These changes may start right away, and are experienced differently by each person. I would like to share with you some of the changes that you might face, and how they may be eased with the help of Young Living’s Feelings™ Kit.

Tension and Stress
Tension and stress are emotional concerns that may run through your mind. You may experience feelings like “Am I ready for this?” or “Will the baby be all right?” Apply Harmony™ oil to the sides of the body. It will help you relax and let go of stress, tension, and fear. Then you can process your emotions easier, and learn to enjoy pregnancy.

Energy
Because of the changes during pregnancy, you may often feel drained. This can cause emotional energy blocks in the body, and leave you feeling worn out. Apply Young Living’s essential oil of Valor® to your shoulders. It may help you have more strength and courage to process and let go of the emotional blocks, thus improving your energy level.

Fear
Fear is a normal emotion you may experience during pregnancy. It may leave you feeling afraid about the baby’s development and the labor and delivery process. You may think, “What if something goes wrong?” Apply Release™ oil to your head. It may help you release the emotion of fear, and bring you into an attitude where you are able to let go of that negative emotion.

Hormonal Imbalance
It is well known that pregnancy changes the hormones in a woman’s body. The hormonal changes can be stressful at times. It may affect different areas of the body, such as the liver, stomach, and kidneys. It may result in the discharge of toxins though the body. All of this may hold you back from balancing your emotions. Apply Present Time to the back of the neck. It may help bring you into the here and now and balance the emotions you may be experiencing. It can also ground the body and release emotional blocks.

Frustration and Nervousness
At times the pregnant mummy may feel frustrated and nervous. This can be caused by the physiological changes from pregnancy or the many emotions you may be feeling. If you are feeling frustrated and nervous, maybe the first step is to use Inner Child™ oil. Put Inner Child under the nose. This essential oil may help ease your mind. It may provide what is needed to stimulate your memory to reconnect with your inner self. This can help you find emotional stability and bring joy to your heart, mind, and body.

Ups and Downs
Sometimes during pregnancy you may experience hard times with cycles of ups and downs. It might be difficult for you to calm down. From all the physical and emotional changes you are going through, you might also be fighting some sadness and feeling down. Apply Forgiveness™ oil to the heart. You may feel a shift in the body or a feeling of lightness. Draw in Forgiveness and let it improve the attitude and help with a sense of grounding and wellbeing.

These quick, simple, and easy steps may help bring changes to help relieve the pregnant mummy. They can help you cope with the nine months of pregnancy and better handle some of the emotional discomfort and stress you may experience during pregnancy.
