Earnest Mom Clears the Air: Alcohol Is NEVER Safe During Pregnancy. 

Earnest Mom Clears the Air: Alcohol Is NEVER Safe During Pregnancy. 

Seriously, the safe amount of alcohol consumption during pregnancy at any stage is ZERO.

Ok – so recently I had a friend tell me her sister’s doctor told her that to help her relax after an amniocentesis test, she could safely enjoy a glass of wine. I am here to clear the air (backed up by a lot of research done by accredited organizations) NO amount of alcohol is safe during pregnancy, ever.  This post is intended to be short and to the point.

According to the CDC:

 “There is no known amount of alcohol that is safe to drink during pregnancy or when trying to get pregnant. All drinks that contain alcohol, including wine and beer, can harm an unborn baby. There is no safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy. Alcohol can harm a baby at any time during pregnancy. So, to prevent FASDs, a woman should not drink alcohol while she is pregnant, or even when she might get pregnant. This is because a woman could get pregnant and not know it for up to 4 to 6 weeks. In the United States, nearly half of all pregnancies are unplanned.”

The CDC, The March of Dimes, The National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and The American Academy of Pediatrics all agree that the risk is simply too great, one drink that contains alcohol can greatly affect an unborn child at any stage of pregnancy.

If you are pregnant, planning on getting pregnant or even have a slight risk of getting pregnant, I earnestly implore please pass the glass and choose a non-alcoholic beverage for the next nine months.  Check out the links below that give further research, warnings and information about alcohol consumption during pregnancy.  Stay informed.  Stay safe.

La Petite Crème. An Earnest Review.

La Petite Crème is a diaper changing “game changer” for me.  As a mom who mainly cloth diapers, using cloth wipes was a very easy transition.  What was not so easy for me was finding a solution (other than plain water) to wipe my earnest babe’s derriere when needed.  Most of the solutions that I had concocted my self or purchased from other mama-makers often seemed to not last long enough.  They tended to develop an “old” smell after a few days.  I was so happy to have stumbled across La Petite Crème which helped to solve this problem for me.

This French inspired, chemical free diapering lotion truly is easy to use, easy to transport and easy recommend to any mama out there, cloth or disposable diapers do not matter because this product can be used with dry cloth or disposable wipes – your choice!

img_1073How does it work? Squeeze a small amount of La Petite Crème on to a cloth or disposable cotton pad or whatever wipe works for you, and simply use to wipe clean the diaper area.  No rinsing required!  It is that easy, not rinsing allows a clear protective film to remain on baby’s sensitive skin.  This diapering lotion is cloth diaper safe, fragrance fee and hypoallergenic while naturally cleansing and disinfecting.  Since it is chemical free, it only has six ingredients – water, olive oil, vegetable glycerin, beeswax, vitamin E and limestone. Best of all, I can pronounce all of them.
