Fairhaven Health Breastfeeding Products Review & Giveaway {US & Canada}

3:47 PM

From the time I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, I knew I wanted to breastfeed. Not only had I heard about the nutritional benefits for the baby, but I had also heard about the bonding aspect of nursing. It was something that I wanted to try and although I had heard numerous horror stories about it, I was willing to take the risks involved in order to give my baby the best start ever. My daughter was an excellent nurser and really, we had very few issues and problems. I firmly believe that if a woman wants to breastfeed badly enough, she will do what it takes and persevere through problems. By problems I mean sore nipples, engorgement, plugged milk ducts, mastitis, and nursing strikes...all of which I have experienced. Thankfully, even though I experienced those issues I still breastfed and continue to do so to this day. My children have been breastfed for their first year and I am working on getting Isaac through his first year now. 

 
When it comes to breastfeeding, I believe that your best tool is the Internet. You can find solutions and products to aid in so many different issues that can arise when breastfeeding. Because I use a breast pump 1-2 times a day, I tend to get sore nipples. I was recently looking online for organic nipple cream and happened upon a company that I immediately loved. Fairhaven Health is a company that is dedicated to providing fertility products, nursing aids and pregnancy products for moms and babies.

Here is a bit more information about Fairhaven Health...

Our product lines follow the natural progression from preconception to pregnancy to nursing. Our preconception products focus on fertility awareness and ovulation prediction, helping couples learn about their fertility and anticipate when they are most likely to conceive. Nutritional fertility supplements like FertilAid & FertileCM provide balance and support enhanced fertility for both women and men. Once couples receive the good news, products like Pregnancy Plus Prenatal and Pregnancy Plus Omega3 promote the prenatal health of a developing baby and help ensure pregnancy wellness for the mother - from the first days of pregnancy through the first years of nursing.

Located in the historic district of Bellingham, Washington, Fairhaven Health unites integrity and quality with sensible pricing - offering an unparalleled tradition of value and success to both our customers and our distributors. Our distribution partners comprise a reputable circle of health product retailers and fertility solution providers, including drugstore.com, BabyCenter, CVS.com, Village Pharmacy and Early-Pregnancy-Tests.com. We also welcome small specialty retailers as well as established medical partners - from the smallest pregnancy boutiques to major fertility clinics and education centers.

I have never had issues conceiving but I know people who have and still do struggle to get pregnant. I think it is really fantastic that Fairhaven Health addresses this issue and offers easy and healthy solutions for infertility. Being a person who highly recommends herbs, I also love that they use herbs in many of their products. You really can't do any better than that when it comes to naturally caring for yourself and your newborn.
So, for this review I was sent several products to try. I was sent Nipple Nurture Balm, Nursing Time Tea and Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement.
Because I am a huge advocate for breastfeeding, I am always looking for new products to share with other new moms out there. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to breastfeed, which is why I look for products like the ones Fairhaven Health carries. The Nurture Nipple Balm is fantastic.
Because it is Lanolin-free and contains no harsh chemicals, it is perfectly safe for mom and for baby. I love this product because it offers relief for nipple pain and soreness that is associated with breastfeeding. This (I think) is the number one reason moms quit nursing...they cannot get past the nipple pain. It looks like an organic salve and smells really nice. You don't need much at all and yes, you can nurse after applying it.
The second reason I believe moms stop nursing is because they don't produce as much milk as they would like to sufficiently satisfy their babies. This is where the Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement comes in. This supplement is designed to quickly increase milk production and quality. This supplement also contains essential vitamins and minerals that lactating mothers can be deficient in...such as vitamins B-6 and B-12.
Another problem that can come as a result of breastfeeding is gassy babies. When I nurse, I cannot eat certain foods because they will sent my baby's tummy reeling. It definitely is inconvenient and something that I hate. Nursing Time Tea is a tremendous product for breastfeeding moms because it contains ingredients to not only help with milk quantity and quality, but also with gas and colic.
This tea comes in loose-leaf form that looks, smells and feels like dried herbs. There is absolutely no junk in this tea!! What is in it that makes it so effective?

Fennel seed – helps increase milk production for nursing mothers and helps alleviate digestive complaints for both mom and baby.

• Goat's rue - acts to stimulate the production and flow of breast milk.

Blessed thistle – helps increase milk production and contains an effective bitter to aid digestion and liver function.

• Alfalfa – contains key vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin K, to help enrich breast milk.

• Anise seed – helps increase milk production while alleviating gas, colic and indigestion.

• Lemon verbena – adds its lemony essence to create a delicious flavor.

All of these herbs are organic and wild-crafted...which is sooooooo great! As you can see, all you do is measure out the tea and put it in a tea ball (1 teaspoon per 1 cup of water), add the tea ball to your hot water, cover and steep for 5 minutes.
When you are ready to drink your tea, you can strain out any particles that may be visible (I left them in) and enjoy! This tea tasted very good to me. I typically favor coffee over tea but could easily drink this tea every morning. It is very soothing. I could also see this tea working well if I had a stomach ache. Of course, I could not drink my tea without my other children wanting a sip, so I shared and they loved it! It's also nice to know that this nursing tea is caffeine free...woo hoo! I am very much looking forward to using this tea in the coming weeks...it is so nice to have a product like this to help with my milk production!

Each of these products can be found on Fairhaven Health's website and the retail prices are as follows:
Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement ~ $19.95
Nipple Nurture Balm ~ $11.95
Nursing Time Tea ~ $14.95 (price decreases when you purchase additional bags)
DreamBelly Value Pack
So, in my opinion...Fairhaven Health has been added to my list of favorite pregnancy and nursing companies! I am definitely going to recommend them to moms that I know and share my experience. I am totally sold on these products that I was sent and cannot wait to see my baby thrive and grow happier every day!

Fairhaven Health has offered to give away one of each of the products I received for this review! One lucky person will recieve Nursing Time Tea, Nipple Nurture Balm and Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement! Here are your entry options...
