Did You Know September is Newborn Screening Awareness Month?

The month is almost over but it's never to late to learn a little about Newborn Screenings. Today I am excited to partner with the Save Babies Through Screening Foundation and Baby’s First Test, two amazing non-profits, to bring awareness to Newborn Screening Month.

So, what do you need to know? Newborn Screening is a series of simple tests that can detect a variety of disorders in newborns. There’s a hearing test, heel prick blood test (often mistakenly called the “PKU”), and in some states the pulse oximeter. 

We have done each of these tests with all of our kids and all are relatively simple and painless. For us, it's all about knowing we are taking home the healthiest baby possible. 

As a side note, C did not pass his newborn hearing test which meant we went in for a follow up appointment and found he did have some problems with fluid in his ears and knowing the signs we were watching for and tools we could use to help him made sure that he was hearing everything he needed to as a young child.

So, here's the important stuff. What you should remember!

Healthy Hair Post Baby

When I'm pregnant my hair is beautiful, but it seems like after I deliver, my hair becomes thinner and is not nearly as healthy. My good friend and hairdresser told me this is because when you're pregnant you take extra care with what you eat and take great vitamins that encourage your hair to be healthy. Not everyone who needs a hair lift can take prenatal however so, I was excited to recently find out about another solution - Hairfinity.

Hairfinity is a nutritional supplement formulated with essential nutrients for healthy hair. This hair specific formula contains Vitamins A, C, and D, a B-Vitamin Complex, Biotin, MSM, and more. Hairfinity is clinically proven to increase the hair growth rate by 155% while decreasing shedding. Two capsules are taken per day, and each bottle contains a one-month supply.

Although I have not yet personally tried Hairfinity, I'm excited to test it out and see how it works on my post baby, post summer sun hair. Have you tried it? Let me know what you think!
