Family Flora Probiotic + Prebiotic Blend

How To Boost Kids Immune System and Keep Them Healthy for School Year

I first heard about probiotics a little over 4 years ago when Scarlett was born. For the first few months she had very bad GI issues. She suffered from acid reflux and she would cry and cry and cry. She was fussy A LOT. Everytime she ate and then fell asleep she would wake up crying and very upset. At first we had no idea what to do. The doctor had me cut out certain foods in my diet and she also prescribed medicine which was the equivalent to what pepcid is in adults. It helped but we knew we couldn’t keep her on the medicine long-term. I hadn’t heard about probiotics though until they were recommended to me by a dear friend. My friend also had a daughter who had suffered from reflux when she was born and she started her on probiotics and immediately she saw a HUGE change in her daughter. She has since started her entire family on them and has sworn by probiotics ever since. It was around that time that I started researching probiotics for our own family and discovered they could only help our family.

When Scarlett turned three she got an ear infection for the first time in her life and had to be put on antibiotics. I knew from my own research that antibiotics kill the good bacteria in our bodies along with the bad and I knew probiotics could help replace the good bacteria that was lost. So it was then that we started her on probiotics.

This taken from the Family Flora website. 

“How do antibiotics affect our natural flora balance? 

When you’re sick, antibiotics may be prescribed to target and eliminate bacteria – but while they are essential to your recovery, antibiotics can wipe out the good bacteria along with the bad.   During and following a course of prescription drug treatment, the natural flora in your GI tract may be disturbed or diminished, allowing for disruption of your microbiome and causing symptoms like cramping and diarrhea. During this vulnerable time, probiotics can help rebuild your body’s natural balance, getting you back to feeling like you.”

My husband and I use probiotics everyday now. Probiotics help maintain the healthy bacteria that our bodies need to thrive.

And now with the probiotic+prebiotic blend for kids from Family Flora, the girls will be getting prebiotics too. We are also going to start looking into probiotics for Lennon since he suffers from food allergies and eczema. We are interested to read more about the benefits.

“Family Flora, a natural prebiotic + probiotic formula that populates your gut with the healthy bacteria needed to successfully battle health challenges, which is especially important with school right around the corner.

Family Flora helps prime the immune system, giving your family a head start in fighting back-to-school health concerns without breaking the bank.”

Basic Invite Review Mom Blogger Review

I love designing and printing my own cards. I guess I just love the customization of it all. We have a lot of parties around here and we have already decided on a Monster Mash Bash for Lennon’s first birthday in October. I found the PERFECT invitation for it too at Basic Invite.

Basic Invite Review Mom Blogger Review

Basic Invite has almost unlimited colors to customize your cards with. It’s one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 160 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail.

I love love love seeing these holiday options along with the new real foil invites!

Basic Invite is also one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place an order for 500 invitations. I absolutely love this option because I am always so curious to see how it’s going to look in my hands versus how it looks online. I have to say that the products I received were very high quality and looked exactly how they looked online.

In addition to the customization, there are also over 40 different colors of envelopes. Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. All of the envelopes are peel and seal too so they can be secured without having to lick them!
