I Am Going To Be A Grandma Very Soon

My first grandchild will be here soon!

                       I received a sample of Baby Butz Cream to feature on my website

  I am so excited that I will be able to see my first grandchild shortly after she is born. God worked in an amazing way the other day. My daughter emailed me to let me know that she is going to be induced this Friday and it was the best news ever for the grandma-to-be. I am not sure the induction is good news for my daughter but for me, it means that I am able to fly to Las Vegas for the birth of my granddaughter. This is so amazing because my daughter's original due date was August 30th and that is when we will be visiting my son in New York at the Merchant Marine Academy. So that would have meant that I would not have been able to see the baby until several weeks after her birth. My daughter's induction made things so much easier and I get to be there for the birth of the baby.

A planned birth means this grandma saved money

 When I received my daughter's email about the scheduled inducing of her baby, I was able to buy my plane ticket at a reasonable cost and I found a hotel room also at a good price near the hospital so I could walk to see the baby from my hotel. I love that I can visit my daughter and the new baby for several days. I will also be able to be there to help my daughter's husband with trips to the store so he can stay at the hospital with my daughter. There is plenty of stores and restaurants near the hospital. I am just so excited that I can be there for the birth of the baby.

  I will be bringing my daughter lots of goodies. I have presents from friends and grandma approved products that I will be packing in my suitcase. I want to provide natural baby products to my daughter to use on the baby. I discovered a 100% All-Natural diaper rash cream that is 100% safe for babies. I am hoping that the new baby never gets diaper rash but my daughter will be prepared. I love how thick this diaper rash is and it has a nice scent too. This cream is supposed to heal a diaper rash fast and take any away pain right away. My daughter can also use it to prevent diaper rash.


My daughter will be prepared for postpartum constipation


  How many moms remember the dreadful postpartum potty problems after giving birth? Nobody prepares first-time moms for the awful constipation that comes with childbirth. I remember the potty problems that I had after I gave birth and the stool softener that the hospital gives you does nothing. So by the time child number three came along I brought with fiber supplements to the hospital. These supplements made going number two a breeze. I use Regular Girl when I travel as traveling always messes with my potty habits. This prebiotic fiber keeps me regular and it is so easy to mix into liquids like water or juice or even my morning yogurt or oatmeal. My favorite traveling supplement has no taste so it is so easy to take and causes no bloating or gas either. You really got to try Regular Girl as being regular is a great feeling. I call this supplement "you go girl" and I need to get my new granddaughter the Regular Girl onsie!

This is my favorite travel supplement, even flight attendants love it! 



Probiotics may prevent Group B Strep



Group B streptococcus (GBS) is a type of bacterial infection that can be found in a pregnant woman’s vagina or rectum. This bacteria is normally found in the vagina and/or rectum of about 25% of all healthy, adult women. Women who test positive for GBS are said to be colonized. A mother can pass GBS to her baby during delivery.

  My daughter was diagnosed with Group B Strep so she will need antibiotics before the baby is born. New research shows that probiotics can help with Group B Strep if used throughout pregnancy. If only my daughter had taken a daily probiotic. I am glad that they are treating her with antibiotics before the baby is born but I am going to bring my daughter plenty of my favorite probiotic so she can get her gut healthy. My youngest boys take a daily probiotic and they no longer complain of tummy problems. I will also be bringing some of my Genuine Health Probiotics to my son as his new diet at the academy has made his acne worse. It just amazes me how a healthy gut can help with so much.

Snacks for me and my daughter

15 grams of protein!

When I travel I always bring plenty of healthy snacks as the food in the airports is expensive. I am loving these fermented vegan protein bars, especially the peanut butter chocolate ones as they have dairy-free chocolate chips in them. They taste like cookie dough and I get my chocolate fix while I am on this dairy-free diet. These bars not only travel well but I get gut healthy protein in them. So it is like a probiotic and protein bar in one. I also love the fiber in them to keep me regular while I travel. I will be bringing a couple of boxes for my daughter so she has healthy snacks to eat. I remember those first months with my babies and how they were always nursing and how I had no time to make food for myself. The nutrition in these protein bars (15 grams of protein) will be great so my daughter makes healthy milk for the baby.

  Once I get to Las Vegas, I will be making a trip to the store to buy my daughter some more presents for the baby like diapers, fresh fruit, and a balloon bouquet. I just can't wait to spoil my first grandbaby. Since this is my first time being a grandma, I would love advice on what to buy my daughter and how to help her after the baby with not being a pain in the rear.


What advice do you have for this new grandma?

  5. Welcoming a grandchild is exciting. Your daughter is lucky to have you when she gives birth. I was in another country when I gave birth so I missed the care of my mom when I gave birth.

  10. I wish I would have known about all the bathroom problems and was prepared. I wonder if the probiotics help with other versions of strep too... hmmm! Advice for a new grandma: It's nice to give advice to a new mommy and daddy, but wait for them to ask you for it. I always felt like my mom was criticizing me when she was just trying to help, but when hormones are all wacky, it's hard to differentiate.
