Pregnancy during the summer can be challenging. From dealing with the heat to taking care of your growing body, we are always looking for ways to seek relief and make this experience (a little easier). From our favorite vitamins to our treats, here are some of our favorites for the summer.
Pregnancy is all about taking care of yourself and your growing baby. To do we have been taking prenatal vitamins from Rainbow Light. Offering the natural industry’s #1 selling prenatal and women’s multivitamins, the prenatal line provides pregnant and nursing women a unique combination of essential nutrients and superfood extracts. This includes blends like the Prenatal One™ Multivitamin, Organic Prenatal Vitamins - Certified Organics® Prenatal Multivitamin, and the Embrace Prenatal 35+ Multivitamin. Personally, I have been using the Complete Prenatal System™ Multivitamin, formula that helps a baby's healthy development with 1,000 mg of calcium for bone health. As a gluten-free, lactose-free, dairy-free, wheat-free and yeast-free, the line is100% natural and contains no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or additives.
For maternity fashions, we love the Belly Box by Mommylicious, a one of kind set that provides the mom-to-be with all of her basic black wardrobe items. This maternity set features an arsenal of comfortable and practical basics that are essential for building a wardrobe around a baby bump. The Belly Box sets range from four to nine pieces, with the nine item box containing black full panel leggings, a little black skirt, the Mommylicious signature crew neck tee, Mommylicious basic black tee, black adjustable spaghetti strap tank, knot front cardigan, off the shoulder dolman top, yoga pants, bootylicious boy shorts and a black nursing tank. Prices range from $65 - $95. The Mommylicious Belly Box is available at: http://www.mommyliciousmaternity.com/collections/the-belly-box-by-mommylicious-created-asc.
For snacks on-the-go, we love Corazonas, a delicious line of snack bars that are infused with cholesterol-lowering plant sterols. Corazonas Oatmeal Squares are good for your heart and have been clinically proven to fight heart disease by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol. This includes a delicious collection of squares such as the banana walnut, chocolate chip, blueberry, orange cranberry and more for the ultimate snack.

The essential product treats aging and dehydrated skin and protects against moisture loss.
