It is official – we have a brand new baby in the house and that means we are back to breastfeeding, sleepless nights, and a whole lot of diaper changes.
With two older kids, I know for a fact the house will be even messier, but let’s face it: in addition to caring for the baby, the mom is expected to continue being a superstar and make sure the family is fed, clean, and healthy. Find yourself in the same boat? Let’s go over the tips that will help you create an everyday family support system.
Was stacking the freezer a part of your nesting stage? With any kind of luck you might of filled your freezer with freezer friendly home cooked frozen family meals. If you already have a baby in the house, consider buying frozen meals – easy to cook and big enough for the whole family.
When cooking, look for freezer friendly recipes and double the quantity – freeze a half for future use. This one below is my favorite Braised Mediterranean Chicken recipe.
As a busy mom, feeling my best is one of my top priorities. What to do? Give your immune system extra support today! To support your immune system, continue taking prenatal vitamins and look into getting extra vitamin C through food and supplementation.
Get the other grownups in your house on board with supplementation for better everyday health. On one of my recent trips to Walmart, I discovered Ester-C®, a unique, exclusive form of Vitamin C designed to stay in your white blood cells for up to 24-hours, providing your family with around-the-clock immune system support. Bonus – it was on Rollback! In addition to Vitamin C, this supplement also delivers antioxidant support to help neutralize cell-damaging free radicals.
Specially manufactured to neutralize pH, Ester-C is non-acidic and gentle on your stomach. One serving daily of 1000 mg of Ester-C® delivers up to 24-hour immune support 365 days a year.* Learn more Twitter and Facebook.
With the family fed and the immune support practices in place, let’s think about clean home and family chores. While I would prefer an outside help – with somebody, who would clean the house for me, I cannot really afford that. However, since my other kids are a bit older, this might be a great time to get them involved. My five and seven-year old have their own chores and they get paid for many things they do around the house. You would be surprised to know what the kids would do to fill their marble jar. Yes, they get paid in marbles for the home chores! Whenever the jar is full, they can cash it for $20 and can buy whatever they think is important.
When it comes to big changes to your family lifestyle,
what is your number one concern – family meals, health or home chores?
