Vitamin Extravaganza :: Taking Care of Mom and Baby


*This1-store-front post is sponsored – but the thoughts and feelings are our own, and we only work with businesses we believe to be reputable and resourceful to our readers.

I finally got the chance to visit the Sprouts Farmers Market store in Mountain View! My maternity leave is coming to an end, and I needed to stock up on some essentials for both myself as well as my babies.

I live in Menlo Park and hadn’t yet been to Sprouts, but I found it was a quick 16 minutes away and had ample parking. I wanted to check out their vitamin and body-care sections and was happily surprised to see that I could also do my entire weekly shopping there.

They have a pretty impressive vitamin and body care section and good prices too!


I like buying products with a purpose and am going to share my Favorite Sprouts Items that are helping us achieve our main family goals at the moment:

  1. A healthy, nourished mommy: New Chapter Perfect Prenatal Multivitamins



I don’t like taking unnecessary supplements or vitamins, but there are a couple I take regularly and these prenatal vitamins are one.

I’ve tried a lot of prenatal vitamins over the course of my two pregnancies and these New Chapter Perfect Prenatal are my favorite. I plan on continuing them while nursing (and perhaps beyond) and so I stocked up at Sprouts!



  1. A healthy & happy baby: Jarro Dophilus Probiotics

4-probiotics-1I want to optimize my babies’ gut microbiome, and the possible benefit for colic symptoms is a plus!

These probiotics are in powder form and are easy to add to his bottles, along with his daily Vitamin D3. We also add them to our 2 year old’s morning oatmeal.



  1. A happy & relaxed mommy: Epsom salts

5-epsom-saltLast but not least, Sprouts enabled a little self-care for me… because a happy mommy means a happy baby, and self-care is not selfish!

My top relaxation method these days is a bath with Epsom salts, music, a candle, and tea or wine (plus or minus an infant in a bouncy chair next to the bathtub).

I really like this massive bag of Sprouts unscented Epsom salts, so I can keep them stocked for regular relaxation (I’ve actually had a hard time finding unscented Epsom salt in the past). I’ll sometimes put them in my 2 year old’s bath as well.


And this is how we spend our last afternoon together on maternity leave… bath time and cuddles!
