Life has been a little crazy of late; welcoming our beautiful boy Henley, preparing Aston for ELC and taking on a few new roles with work. It’s fair to say there has been some big life events happening, none of which, however, get in the way when it comes to the health of my two gorgeous boys.
I’ve been an avid user of Swisse Wellness vitamins for years now, using their vitamin and skincare range in my day-to-day routine. Overall health and wellbeing every day is a huge priority for me and my family.
Motherhood has made my health and my families health such an important priority. I was excited to see Swisse launch their Swisse Ultinatal range last year, that has since become my favourite range in the market. If anyone is planning, pregnant or raising little ones, it may be worthwhile exploring the four brilliant products.
1.When it comes to Vitamin D, I’ve always supplemented with Swisse as I have experienced low vitamin D during both of my pregnancies. From pregnancy and now since giving birth to Henley, I continue to incorporate a vitamin D supplement into our daily routines, to make sure he and I maintain healthy immune systems. The product I’m using for Henley is the Swisse Ultinatal Vitamin D3 Liquid (designed for bubs).You might have caught an Instagram story I recently posted, where I explained a few of its benefits. If I was you, I would recommend seeing your doctor first, so you can check-in on what its most suitable for you.
As well as his immune system, the Swisse Ultinatal Vitamin D3 liquid is designed to support healthy, strong bones and muscle health. Vital for a growing boy! The Vitamin D3 is in a liquid form, meaning it’s easy to pop it into his milk or directly into Henley’s mouth using the dosing device included. I’ll talk about my Vitamin D support a little later.
2.The Swisse Ultinatal DHA + EPA Liquid for Baby. This is another liquid form product which is fantastic to help support little ones in terms of their cognitive health and brain function from 7 months+. On top of this, the Swisse Ultinatal DHA + EPA Liquid for Baby is great for their nervous system and eye health. Liquid products are a convenient option for kids!! Aston doesn’t even know he’s having it! I simply chop the capsule tails off and squeeze the liquid into his drink- Aston loves his milkshakes and smoothies. Alternatively, I pop it into his wheatbix or porridge in the morning.
This product is only for little ones who are 7 months+. When Henley is a little older, I’ll add the Swisse Ultinatal DHA + EPA Liquid for Baby into his day-to-day feeds.
3.Next up, the Swisse Ultinatal Probiotic Powder for Baby. The powder comes in individual sachets, making the product easy to use. No measuring is required (for new mums with baby brain, this is a saviour!) – one sachet daily into their milk. I mix it up between popping it into Aston’s milk or food.
The Swisse Ultinatal Probiotic Powder for Baby contains three probiotic strains, helping to establish a balanced intestinal environment in breastfed infants. It’s great to help maintain bub’s immune health, their gut health and digestive system health. It seems like more and more of us are in tune with our gut health these days due to a whole range of varying factors. Making sure I’m preparing two healthy tummies in Aston and Henley provides me with a lot of comfort.
The last of the Ultinatal range I wanted to write a little on vitamin supplements that are suitable during pre-conception and pregnancy
4.The Swisse Ultinatal Pre-Conception & Pregnancy Multivitamin. The Swisse Ultinatal Pre-Conception & Pregnancy Multivitamin contains folic acid (which helps to maintain healthy cells, in particular red blood cells), omega-3 DHA (important to help support our brain function) and vitamin D (as I mentioned earlier, vitamin D is an important vitamin in terms of helping to support our immune system & bone health). I was very low in Vitamin D when I was pregnant with Aston and had the same issues again with Henley- so it’s important to take a supplement like this to support you to be your healthiest and happiest self.
I adore this product, as it helps me to support my general health.
Knowing that my two boys can be supported from the inside, out helps to take the stress away. The new Ultinatal range from Swisse fits into my busy lifestyle (as my days can be hectic and are never the same). Thanks to Swisse’s great baby friendly formulations (liquid and powder forms) for providing premium quality formulations!
