I have been using Seeking Health's Prenatal Protein Powder for over a year now, and I can't wait to share with you guys some ways I have benefited from such a high quality vitamin supplement. As many of you know from some of my previous posts, I struggled after my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies with severe postpartum anxiety. I believe a big piece of the puzzle for me has been nutrient deficiencies. One of the biggest benefits I've noticed from being on Seeking Health's Prenatal is that after my 4th was born in July, I have not had any anxiety, which is such a huge blessing. I truly believe the methylated B vitamins made the difference for me, and I am going to continue taking it because of the benefits I get from it.
Also, my 3rd baby was failure to thrive (and he was breastfed), and this time around my son is in the 97%+ for weight, height and head circumference. Now of course there's no way for me to prove it was the vitamins, but it's the only thing I've done differently. Again, I think because he's getting the quality nutrients he needs, through me getting the nutrients I need, and it's made a world of difference. Before I learned about Seeking Health I didn't know about the difference between synthetic vitamins (which I had always taken in the past) and the active forms of vitamins that our bodies can more easily process and utilize. So I think I've probably been deficient, or at least low on key nutrients for many years.
I'm going to be sharing about more of their products with you guys in the future, because I truly believe in this brand and the quality you can expect from them. Seeking Health has been so generous to offer my readers 10% off your order with code MOMMYLIFE10.

Airthereal has a new Air Purifier for 2021 with a medical grade filter and UV-C sanitizer. I reviewed one of their purifiers in the past (you can read about the APH2030C here). They were so generous to allow me to review another one for you guys, the AGH380, and I am seriously in love! It has such a sleek modern look that will go well with any decor, and I love how it uses UV-C sanitation as well as the medical grade filter, so you know germs will not be circulating.
As far as features go, the AGH380 has some exciting new ones not previously on other purifiers. The filter is a medical grade HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of airborne particles. This is great if you have allergies, pets, dust, etc. The Pre-Filter traps large particles, pet hair and dust and the Carbon Filter eliminates odors and VOCs.
The UV-C Sterilization uses high energy rays to neutralize viruses and bacteria. With 4 young kids (2 in school), this is great to help with the spread of airborne germs when one gets sick. We have 3 sharing a room, so usually if one is sick and coughing, it easily spreads throughout the room and infects the other. But with a UV-C light, the purifier can kill the germs as it passes through.
The PM2.5 sensor can measure particles 30-1000+ times smaller than a human hair.
This purifier has an Auto Mode that will adjust the fan speed based on your current air quality. If the air quality gets worse, the fan speed goes up. If the air quality is good, it will lower the speed. This is also nice to be able to know what the air quality is in your house at any given time.
The AGH380 can completely clean and recirculate the air in the room every 7-20 minutes depending on the size of the room. I love the Air Quality Indicator. If the number shows 0-12, you have fresh clean air. 13-35 means it's moderately healthy. Anything over 36 is unhealthy. When we first plugged it in, ours was 12. After some time of having it running it lowered to 4, which shows how well it worked at purifying the air.
The fan noise is not too loud, unlike some other purifiers we've had before. In fact at the lowest setting you can barely hear it! I also like that it has a child lock function, up to 24 hour timer, and filter replacement notification. Speaking of filters, they are super easy to replace, and only need to be replaced every 6-8 months.
To read more about the new Air Purifier and get one for yourself, check them out here. They also have ozone generators and other Air Purifier options available. I would highly recommend this company for their high quality and affordable options for cleaner air for your home. Especially right now during a pandemic, clean air is a must!

All 4 of my kids have struggled with eczema at some point, and my 6 month old is currently dealing with it. I have tried every cream, lotion, ointment, probiotics out there and nothing was working. I'd heard about Vanicream and saw it on Amazon for only around $13, so thought why not? It has been a night and day difference! I had to share it in case there's anyone else out there looking to help manage the flare ups without constantly having to turn to topical steroids.
When you put it on it's very creamy and thick, and almost sticky, but it very quickly absorbs into your skin. My sons eczema was about 90% better in 2 days. If you know anyone out there struggling with eczema please share this with them! I wish I had known about it 11 years ago with my first.
It's free of all the things most lotions have that can be irritating like dyes, fragrances, lanolin, parabens, botanical extracts, etc. It's recommended by a lot of dermatologists for atopic dermatitis (eczema) and other skin conditions.
Check it out here, and read the reviews as well. It has helped so many, and hopefully can help you too.

My youngest son has recently started getting really puffy red eyes, sneezing all day, runny nose, your typical allergy symptoms. The pollen counts are really high right now where we live. Airthereal generously offered me their new air purifier to try out, and it's been amazing how much it's helping him having this in his room at night.
Airthereal Pure Morning APH2030C Air Purifier covers up to 315 sq. feet using a true HEPA air filter. It filters out 99.7% of airborne particles .1 microns or larger (mold spores, bacteria, viruses, pollen, dust and more). Their filters also have an activated carbon filter to remove smoke and VOC odors. In a typical bedroom, the air will be completely circulated and cleaned within 19 minutes (over 3 times an hour).
You can see how that would definitely help those suffering from allergies. Not only that, I feel like it's helping him sleep better (probably because he's not as stuffy). I love how it operates fairly quietly, and also has a child safety lock so they can't change the settings. Also, it's very lightweight so you can easily move it to a different room as needed.
Right now you can get this model for just $89.99, plus they offer free shipping on their site. Also, the replacement filters are very affordable compared to other brands.

With 3 kids with allergies, asthma and respiratory issues, I've been researching natural ways to help alleviate their symptoms, especially when they get respiratory infections and sinus infections. I kept coming across salt therapy and all the many benefits, but couldn't afford to go to salt rooms as often as my kids would need it. Then I discovered the AirSalter by Healovation and it was exactly what I was looking for as a way to combat these issues from home on a daily basis.
Since we've started using it nightly, I've noticed a reduction in their symptoms. My daughter also had a cold that usually settles in her chest, but with using the AirSalter, she was able to clear the cold quickly without a secondary infection settling in. On their website, you can find all sorts of articles on research that's been done showing the benefits of Halotherapy. Here are just some of the issues it can help with:
Salt therapy helps decrease inflammation and clear mucus which is why it helps with the issues above. I was also surprised at how I slept better after using it myself. I don't have any allergy issues like my kids, but this was an unexpected pleasant result of using it for myself as I really struggle with sleep at times.
The saline solution is sourced from the Dead Sea, which is one of the saltiest bodies of water. However, it only contains 12-18% sodium chloride. The rest is a high concentration of minerals that help to cleanse and detoxify. That's why it is so beneficial for common ailments as it provides hydration and reduces inflammation.
The kit comes with:
If you or anyone in your family struggles with any of the conditions listed above, I highly recommend checking out the AirSalter. It's truly a unique product that I have not been able to find anywhere else. You can get your own from Healovation here. Plus right now it is $20 off the original price if you use my link above and coupon code SPECIAL20 at checkout.
If you are looking for good quality whole food supplements, then let me tell you a little about Grown By Nature's Vitamins and Supplements. They are vitamins and minerals from whole food sources, the kind that your body easily accepts and digests. We were made to get the nutrients we need from food and nature, but in the world we live in today, that is getting harder and harder to do. Not only are more foods processed, but even natural whole foods are treated with pesticides and less nutrient dense than they used to be.
Most of us need to supplement with vitamins because of this, but synthetic vitamins could be doing more harm then good. They are not the same as vitamins you would get from fruits and vegetables and sometimes are hardly absorbed because they are synthetic. But when we supplement with whole food vitamins and minerals, our body can more easily digest them and use them. Click here to read more about the Grown by Nature difference.
Right now if you use code Mommy20, you can get 20% off your first order with them. Plus, any subsequent order you can get 10% off with code Mommy10! That's a great deal on these high quality supplements. I have been using the Bone & Joint formula and can already tell a difference in the stiffness in my hands. It's like my body is finally getting the supplements it's been craving because they're in a form that is recognized and easily absorbed. The pills are not too big to swallow, and come in nice glass bottles. Click here to see all the different supplements available and get yours today.

*I received a product in exchange for my review but all opinions are my own.
The Pure Company offer products from air purifiers to water purifiers and essential oils. I've had the privilege of reviewing The Pure Company Large Room Air Purifier. Did you know the air indoors can often times be more polluted than outdoor air? This is the first air purifier I've seen that has a place to put essential oils so not only does it filter out the bad (allergens, pollutants, etc.) but it adds to the air some good! I'm a firm believer in the power of essential oils and love how they have this option.
As I went to add a couple drops of oils to the small pad, I thought to myself I'm not sure this will actually fill the room (which I want it to, because I love the Fresh scent), but to my surprise only 2 drops did in fact fill the room, and lasted for quite a while. It's by no means overpowering in smell, but it's enough you actually smell it and just gives the air a nice fresh clean smell. I love their Comfort, Clarity and Fresh essential oil blends. Plus, you can feel good about what you are putting into the air because their oils are made from plants and are 100% pure essential oils with no synthetics, chemicals or fillers.
I absolutely love the design of this air purifier. It will fit in with any room decor, and even add style and elegance to the decor. They also offer wraps if you want to change the color. I love the look of the Marble and Navy as shown below. They also offer a Charcoal color.
The air quality is noticeably improved while running the air purifier. This purifier works as amazingly as it looks. I love knowing my kids are breathing cleaner, purer air, and I love seeing their allergies and asthma indoors improving. It also runs quietly, which is another big plus. It removes 99.97% of air particles as small as .3 microns, and with a 360 degree filter, it's cleaning the air from every direction. It also has a timer with auto shut off at the ends of a cycle. With the air quality sensor, you can set the speed to auto so it will run at a higher speed if needed. This is a nice feature so you don't have to mess with changing a setting, it will do it automatically. There's also an auto alert when the filter needs replacing.
All in all, this is a great air purifier not just for function, but for appearance, style and uniqueness. I would highly recommend checking out The Pure Company, and start taking steps to make your air and water cleaner.

Speaking of the kids having allergies, this purifier really seems to help in reducing allergens in the air. With the Fall weather unfortunately also comes allergies, and allergens in the air get tracked into your house too. Not to mention dust, and mold that can also be lingering. My kids have been coughing less and their allergies seem more controlled when we're home. The air just feels cleaner.
You can get the Winix brand purifiers online on their website here or also at Home Depot and Wayfair. The purifier has a smart sensor that constantly monitors the air quality (blue is good, yellow is fair, red is poor). There's also a Check Filter light to let you know when it's time to change the filter. It's very quiet when it's running, which in our house is important because with 3 little kids there's enough "background noise" going on.
Another nice thing is, you only have to replace the filter once a year. It's not like some others where you're having to change them every couple of months. Also, the purifier covers up to 320 sq. feet. Overall, this is a really great air purifier, and with the $100 off deal going on there's no better time to get one.
I'd love to hear from you guys, has anyone else tried the Winix Air Purifiers before? What has your experience been?
