There are no secrets here, I’m sharing all of the magical products that help me out as a busy, sometimes sleep deprived yet always nurturing mother. After all how can we possibly care for another if we aren’t caring for ourselves? I’ll be sharing these product love posts on Mondays and you can easily find them titled as Motherhood Mondays, in which I will aim to post twice a month.
My first product post and greatest “new to me” discovery are items that I wish I had known about long before my babes first birthday. Better late than never, because at almost 1 year into this parenting journey I’ll admit that I’m still sleepy, stressed at times and overwhelmed. Luckily products such as this robe by Under The Canopy and these elixirs by Think I Am, are around to help.
Reminiscing on those early days postpartum I wanted to live in a robe, but didn’t manage to find one I thought I’d love living in for several weeks after Nova’s birth, so I went without. Looking back I would suggest a robe to all expectant mothers, in fact I think this robe along with these elixirs would make the ultimate new mom gift bundle for baby showers!
I love the intention behind the elixir line and the overall effectiveness of the products. Being a lover of natural medicine and a praiser of plants I was once again in awe over the brilliance of nature and science. A few minutes after sipping away the bottle of I am Sleepy, I slipped into my robe and under the covers of my bed snuggled with baby at my side and began to feel my eyelids get heavy and a deep sleep set in. When I arose in the morning I recalled the many vivid dreams I had and the feeling of deep relaxation that came over me as if I had just slept throughout the night as I once used to do pre-baby. Warning though this is one product in the line not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.
I was equally uplifted after trying the “I am energized” on a day when another mom friend and I decided to take a trip to Ikea. This time chugging a bottle of “I am energized” gave me instant energy about 20 minutes after consuming it. A light bubbly feeling came through me, I would call this one “I am uplifted” because I didn’t feel overly activated but subtly picked up as if a fairy had tapped me with her energy wand tailoring the amount and quality of energy to be just what my body needed. I never felt the energy ware off (no crash) I felt carried through my day and gently set down for a regular unwinding once the sun set. Perfect time to slip into my soft and lightweight yet snuggly and comforting robe by under the canopy.
Looking forward to waking up to many well rested mornings while lounging in my robe long after breakfast is made. After all with the help of these elixirs a mum can dream, can’t she! 😉
