SOVEREIGN SILVER COLLOIDAL SILVER

What is it: Colloidal Silver is created using electrolysis to suspend pure, metallic elemental silver in distilled water, this substance has been used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of ailments.

Benefits: Colloidal silver is a great natural antibiotic due to its anti microbial powers. He ancient Greeks & Romans used it to preserve their food and drinks. 2011 research states that colloidal silver nanoparticles have the potential to be an effective alternative to conventional antifungal treatments for Candida-related conditions. A Taiwanese study also discovered that colloidal silver can eradicate the anti-biotic resistant superbugs MRSA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It’s also highly effective when used in conjunction with antibiotics against MRSA and Staph infections. In fact, scientists in the 1980s discovered 650 different types of pathogens that were rapidly destroyed when exposed to small amounts of silver.

NORDIC NATURALS OMEGA-3 GUMMIES & BABY’S DHA 

What are they: 
Nordic Omega-3 Fishies provide kids with the omega-3 essential fatty acids they need for optimal health.* Each pure and great-tasting chewable fishies delivers 250 mg of the omega-3s EPA+DHA.
Baby’s DHA is made exclusively from Gold Standard Arctic Cod Liver Oil, Nordic Naturals Baby’s DHA is the Official Baby's DHA of the American Pregnancy Association. It's a safe and effective way to help ensure that growing babies get the DHA they need for healthy development. Great for babies 5-35 lbs.

Benefits of both: A baby’s brain more than doubles in size during the first years of life. DHA is the primary building block of brain tissue. Adequate intake of DHA is essential for proper brain and visual development, and remains necessary throughout life to maintain brain, eye, and nervous system health. During these times, infants have the greatest need for Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Arachidonic Acid (ARA). Both are important nutrients that have been shown to help brain development. Infants must obtain DHA and ARA from their diets, so it is important that parents provide them a diet that includes adequate amounts of both nutrients. 
Omega-3s support a child’s cognitive development. According to a study, children who were fed foods rich in or fortified with Omega-3s showed better hand-eye coordination, social skills, attention span.
Omega-3 fats are an essential part of the body’s structural cell membranes. On consumption, the fats get accumulated in the cell tissues and enrich certain parts of the body. Omega-3s play an important role in cell and cell receptor functioning by performing the role of molecules that enable important communication between cells.

What it is: A book which discusses the use of coconut oil as a  uniquely curative elixir that has been shown to have countless health benefits.

This is a new purchase for me! I use coconut oil for everything: diluting oils, a carrier in rollers, on baby bums, dry skin or even for cooking. So this book is right up my alley! I love researching and learning new things.

AMBER SPRAY BOTTLES (2 oz)

•hair detangler
•bottom spray for diaper changes
•pillow sprays
•face toner

It’s really convenient having these on hand to whip up something if I need to!

AMBER TEETHING NECKLACE

What it is: An alternative medicine for babies & toddlers on the teething process. Said to have an immune system boost, anti-inflammatory & analgesic capabilities. By the time the baby or toddler start using the necklace you may start noticing the differences on their behavior & mood due to the succinic acid contained naturally on the amber.

Benefits: Has soothing, calming effects after a few hours of wearing it and much more after a few days of use. A natural teething remedy without secondary effects as normal pharmaceutical drugs used for teething healing.  May recover full energy, fussiness & avoid fever from teething. Can also help prevent drool rashes and excessive drool during teething. 

TIP: make sure the amber necklace you purchase is real, certified Baltic Amber & that it is RAW OR UNPOLISHED. Also, lighter colored necklaces such as Honey or Lemon are said to have higher properties of the succinic acid. 

We have used an amber teething necklace since Ryker was 4 months old. He never displayed typical signs of teething & we noticed a huge improvement with the amount of drooling. He also had a consistent drool rash that we noticed cleared up within the week of using the necklace. We used it from the time he was 4 months until he was 18 months old after the majority of his teeth had erupted. We have since started Cash on the amber necklace and also noticed an improvement in the amount of drool & the rash that had begun to develop around the 4 month mark. He will be using the necklace until his teeth have come in as well. We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience using amber necklaces! To each their own!

NORA’S NURSERY OR ALVA BABY CLOTH DIAPERS

What they are: an alternative to disposable diapers that could be a greener way to diaper our children. Also, they are two more reasonably priced brands that bring the opportunity of cloth diapering to everyone.

Benefits: 
Contain no chemicals such as chlorine, perfumes or polyacrylate (a chemical used for absorbency). Chlorine and other chemicals can strip away good protective bacteria on the skin and change the pH balance of your infant, which can cause dryness and skin irritations. One report found an increase in childhood asthma and respiratory problems was correlated to babies wearing disposable diapers. In more critical cases from exposure to these chemicals, your infant can develop severe skin irritations, a fever, vomiting and staph infections. Also, these chemicals have been found to be carcinogenic.You may end up with more laundry but you may find the benefits outweigh the extra work. Cloth diapers:
Allow for more breath-ability. They are made from cotton and result in less skin irritation and rashes. Many of the cloth diaper companies are using organic cotton for their diapers. The reason for this is that farmers of non-organic cotton may spray their plants with chemicals and pesticides that can find their way into the cotton that is placed next to your infant’s skin. To avoid the skin irritation and other effects of harsh chemicals it is better to look towards the organic cotton brands.
Lead to earlier potty training for your infant. Using a cloth diaper allows your infant to feel the wet sensation against their skin and become more aware of when they have gone potty. Disposable diapers wick away the wetness, keeping your infant unaware of a wet diaper for longer periods of time.
Save money. The initial investment in cloth diapers is more expensive, but once you own cloth diapers you have them for life. No need to be constantly buying disposables!
Produce less waste-this is obvious.
Allow convenience. If the store is closed, you always have a diaper (as long as you have a washing machine close at hand).

These are all products we use & love. Most of these products I have been using for years since transitioning to a natural lifestyle when Ryker was an infant. I am not a doctor and I am not “treating” anyone by sharing these products, I am simply sharing what we use in our home with our babies & the research I’ve done on each product.
