Benefits of Co-Bathing and Breast Milk Baths!!

We don't always bathe with flowers :) This was for our Milk Bath photo shoot! 

I started co bathing with Anya as soon as her umbilical cord fell off. It was a great way for us to have skin to skin time. She LOVES to nurse while we are in the bath. As she has grown she has a blast splashing around and playing in the bath with mama! I cherish our bath time together and love that she always wants to snuggle for the first few minutes we are in there! I had no clue when we started that there were a ton of health benefits as well!

Benefits for baby:

  1. Great bonding experience
  2. Promotes skin to skin contact
  3. Relaxing for baby, keeps them calm during bath time
  4. It's more comfortable and warm then a cold baby bath
  5. Encourages breastfeeding

Benefits for mom:

  1. It's a relaxing way to unwind after a long day
  2. Boosts the hormones that help lactation
  3. Great bonding experience
  4. Stimulates milk letdown
  5. Encourages breastfeeding
  6. It's convenient! We travel a lot and never have to worry about how to bathe her

Tips for successful co bathing:

  • Make sure water temperature is comfortable for baby and not too hot
  • Add enough milk to make the water cloudy
  • Have towels laid out for you and baby
  • I try to bathe her when someone is home to help me get out of the tub
  • If you are home alone have a bouncer or something next to the tub to set baby in after you wrap them in a towel so you can get out
  • If you are worried about the baby being slippery you can use textured gloves (available at bath and body stores)
  • We like to dim the lights and listen to relaxing music
  • I usually add Lavender and Chamomile Roman to the bath to help us both relax and help her sleep (I love this organic line from Europe!)

Breast Milk Baths

When Anya was 2 months old she developed eczema so we started researching Breast Milk baths. I only bathe her 1-2 times a week and a few times a month we add breast milk to our bath. NEVER pump and dump or throw away expired breast milk!!! It can be used in your bath!! Also great if you have high lipase and baby won't drink your stored milk.

You can take some amazing milk bath photos too!! We took these in our bathroom on an iPhone!

Benefits of Breast Milk baths

  1. Clears up eczema and other skin problems
  2. Helps clear up pink eye or blocked tear ducts
  3. Soothes and heals diaper rash
  4. Moisturizes the skin
  5. Heals cuts and scrapes
  6. Helps clear up baby acne

Breast Milk is also great for healing ear infections (placing a few drops inside the ear), clearing up moms acne and rubbing the fatty part of your milk on stretch marks! I'm very into natural remedies and try to avoid antibiotics as much as possible so I'm not going to lie....I've drank my own milk when feeling under the weather! It's natures best nutrition!!

I've it's very important to use coconut oil on the baby after a breast milk bath to seal in the moisture, I usually add Lavender essential oil to help her sleep.






Mentoring Series: Jeff Weisberg

This interview will add a COMMA to your check!

I am excited to share a 3 part series "Interview" style with a legend in the direct sales industry and a VERY good friend of mine for nearly 20 years...Jeff Weisberg.  Jeff has made his fortune in direct sales as a single father of two boys. 


Jeff is a NO excuse, NO bullshit, 1000% ACTION kind of guy.  

Jeff tells it like it is...and his infectious energy and humor makes him a guy everyone in the industry loves to hang out with and learn from when it comes to success.

Listen to part one of the interview...

Brandy and I had an awesome trip to Europe last year. We are pictured here with Jeff and and his beautiful girlfiend Sandra. This picture brings back many of our great memories...we had an AMAZING dinner for my birthday in Frankfurt then we drove into Luxembourg for the next few days. The hotel bar was closed but they opened it up to allow us a bottle to celebrate! Traveling the world with friends is priceless.  

You know what's really neat?  

Jeff and I both have a mutual mentor, Larry Thompson who is the Co-Founder of Herbalife, a $5 BILLION company still today! You can hear Jeff share his name several times in the interview and for good reason, Larry Thompson is the "Mentor to the Millionaires".  Ironically Larry Thompson mentored and worked with my parents in the late 1960's in a company called Bestline.  Bestline was a company where many legends like Larry got their start...people like Jim Rohn, Les Brown and more!

So take Jeff's advice very serious from this fact listen to it again and again if needed before we dive in to the next call on Activity and Leadership.  Jeff is challenging us to make a commitment to personal growth.  

Jeff's CHALLENGE is simple:

"Commit to 15-30 minutes of personal growth everyday" 

  • read a book
  • watch a video on YouTube 
  • read a positive article
  • call one of your mentors

Challenge yourself to do this everyday, starting today!

"My mother retired from direct sales in 2008 with a multiple six figure income.  She raised her 5 children while building residual income and completely secured her future.  I know this because I am her son.  What's amazing is that when it was time for her to receive her social security checks, she did not need them so she gave them to her mother; my grandmother.  It's quite amazing to see what several years of hard work building residual income can do for the entire family...for generations"   -MIKE LEMIRE (The BOSS lady moderating the call below is my woman!)
