What Is Jungle Juice???

Right, so now that I am a mommy, I’m going through more things than just finding out the latest beauty products, tricks and tips. Motherhood goes beyond that. It’s now whats best for your child, and of course yourself. How on earth can a mother look after her child if she doesn’t look after herself first.

So if you’re a mommy, you know or have heard of jungle juice, haven’t you?  It’s a ‘magic’ potion you drink to improve your milk production. Although on La Leche League (LLL) groups, they’ll tell you it holds no evidence that it does, HOWEVER, too many mommies say it has worked for them. So I’m testing it… And in my honest opinion it is working. But I have to also say that I’m topping up with formula. This is a personal choice, as my milk took a while to come in. I feel it’s due to the fact I had a c-section. I have however noticed my milk is coming in more with this juice while expressing. So my boy is having less formula.. so yay!

Now it could be just be the fact I’m drinking a whole lot of liquids which lets face it, is what really helps with milk production. But with all the ingredients one mixes, it could only be helping really.

INGREDIENTS:

2 litres water, room temperature or cold.
1 litre apple juice
1 sachet rehidrat (available at a pharmacy)
± 10 drops per litre of juice of Rescue drops (available at a pharmacy)
60ml blackthorn berry elixir (available at a pharmacy)

METHOD:

  1. Mix it all together in a large bottle ± 5 litre bottle and drink it all up within two days.


WHAT IS REHIDRAT?
Oral electrolyte mixture for the treatment of dehydration.

WHAT IS RESCUE DROPS?
A homeopathic-flower essence combination complementary medicine of the use of shock, anxiety, fear, grief and recurrent insomnia due to stress.

WHAT IS BLACKTHORN BERRY ELIXIR?
This elixir is ideal for restoring the body’s natural balance after periods of exhaustion, pressure or illness.
Reducing fatigue and increasing vitality.
Pregnant and breastfeeding woman and after confinement. Ideal for the whole family.


So if you’re breastfeeding, I suggest trying Jungle Juice out. So far, so good. I definitely approve.

MuchLuv, BeBlessed

Kate Middleton : The Best Maternity Style Ever?

Hiya Poutlings

Kate Middleton is due to pop out a royal baby in a matter of weeks. She is due to go on maternity leave from the 13th of June.kate middleton1

She attended the service to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation yesterday morning along with Prince William and Harry and a whole bunch of both minor and senior royals at Westminster Abbey.

Kate wore pale pink Jenny Packham for the event. A beautiful lacy dress with a silver grey ribbon, she paired it with a Jane Taylor pill box hat plus of course, her trusty LK Bennett nude pumps.

The whole outfit comes together when you see the shoes. The outfit speaks of Kate, conservative and demure but while one is pregnant, do you really want to be loud and proud? I think not. She really looks quite lovely.

I think other pregnant stars, mention no names could learn something from this fine young woman’s dress sense. I believe this is the last royal outing until the baby comes, but she looks positively radiant.

Well done Kate.

Unborn Baby Entered into a Beauty Pageant

Hiya Poutlings!

It’s never too early to start preparing your child to be a beauty queen…. at least, that is what mum-to-be Jenny Oliver thinks.

Crazy pageant mother in question - Jenny Oliver from Blackpool, UK.

Crazy pageant mother in question – Jenny Oliver from Blackpool, UK.

At seven months pregnant, she’s already entered her unborn daughter, tentatively named “Ella” into her first Bonnie Baby pageant.

“With my dance skills and her sister Jess’s knowledge of pageants, there’s no way she won’t win the prize for bonniest baby… It was only a tenner to enter her and I believe you should start them young. Ella will do so much better in life with all that experience under her belt… She’s only going to be three months old but she’ll have a bit of fun on the day… Walking down the catwalk with my gorgeous baby will make me feel a million dollars – even though I’ll still be carrying my baby weight and wearing baggy clothes. I hope she wins – it would be fab to have a baby sash and crown to add to the collection. I have so much planned for her.”

Can we just stop for a minute? Goodness. I feel stressed reading that. What about you? THIS POOR CHILD DOESN’T EVEN EXIST YET. I suppose they will start fitting her for a “flipper” the moment after her first feeding.

I have so many questions when reading this:

1. What if she doesn’t arrive on her due date.

2. What if her skin doesn’t take to spray tans well?

3. What if she doesn’t look good in nappies?

4. What if Ella is a boy?

There are too many unanswered questions here, and I feel stressed for a life that is even yet to live. What the hell is happening with the world?

It is worrying enough seeing toddlers dressed up in pink frills, covered in makeup and encouraged to be swoon-worthy in front of judges at teeny beauty pageants but its positively scary to think unborn babies are being lined up for a childhood spent being judged on how they look.

I rest my case.

Felicidades!!!!

****FELICIDADES****

Heya Poutlings!

Being a major fan of the beautiful Shakira and one of the most supportive fans of the football club Barcelona, I’d love to wish Gerard Pique and Shakira a Pouting CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of their baby boy Milan Piqué Mebarak.

pique

The birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain.
 The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.
Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.
The hospital confirmed that the couple’s first child weighed approximately 6lbs. 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.

We at Pout wish them all the happiness in the world with their new bundle of joy baby Milan.
Pique 2

*CONGRATS*

CANT WAIT TO SEE PICS!!!

What Will Life be Like for the Royal Offspring?

Hiya Poutlings

Royal watchers are ravenous for news about the forthcoming progeny of Prince William and wife, Kate, so loads of speculations have happened all over the net – have taken a look at what life will be like for the soon-to-be third in line to the British throne.

  • He or she will be welcomed with tolling bells, cannons and bonfires. I’m serious. You probably won’t understand if you’re not British. It’s something we do.
  • His or her last name will be same as William’s. Which is Mountbatten-Windsor, for those who don’t know.
  • If she’s a girl, her name will probably include “Diana”. But it most likely will not be her first name, just one of many, the Atlantic Wire points out that Europe’s largest betting firm is already taking bets.
  • Kate will probably breastfeed the little one. That might seem obious, but up until Princess Diana, British royals typically used wet nurses.
  • There  may (or may not) be a nanny. But just one, and any royal siblings may share. (A far cry from the two to four nannies per child like some American celebrities use.) However sources have said that Kate plans to be a full-time mum and doesn’t want a nanny, an idea that initially shocked Prince Charles. She may, however have a maternity nurse for the first few weeks.
  • Speaking of royal siblings, Kate may be having twins. Medical experts say hyperemesis gravidarum, the servere form of morning sickness that caused Kate to be hospitalised is linked to having twins.
  • Kate wants her child to lead as “normal” a life as possible. Even so, that “normal” life will likely include an approximate R16,000,000 wardrobe alone, according to an expert who has dressed royals in other countries. But another expert notes that those clothes will probably be “sensible”, and that royal babies are typically brought up with “few parties, not too many toys and very dull meals”.
