As the nights get cool and the leaves are changing we have time to reflect on the Summer that was. The Milkies - Fairhaven Health partnership was introduced to the world at lactation consultant shows and other big venues. I added bamboo nursing pads to the Milkies product line after careful review and thoroughly testing materials while keeping the price affordable. The Milkies Softies were introduced last week, they are thin, thirsty and are the only bamboo pads with three layers of protection and a low price.
We all need bacteria (also called flora) in our digestive tract to help our immune system work and get the most energy from our food, babies are the same! Your baby has a sterile gut until birth - that means her digestive tract is a blank slate.
A vaginally delivered baby gets exposed to mom’s good bacteria during the birth process – thanks mom! A c-section baby will get his first dose of bacteria from the environment – microbes may come from the nurses and other babies in close proximity.
