How Vaccinated Kids Infect UnVaccinated Children

With the thousands of mainstream media articles blaming the non-vaccinated for disease outbreaks, this article will provide a necessary counterbalance by showing the vaccinated can (and do) infect the non-vaccinated…
“Health officials should require a two-week quarantine of all children and adults who receive vaccinations,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “This is the minimum amount of time required to prevent transmission of infectious diseases to the rest of the population, including individuals who have been previously vaccinated.”
“Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals,” says Manookian, “CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”

Mandatory Vaccination Laws Are NOT For Our Health

The War On Personal and Religious Belief Exemptions
Vaccination bills have been introduced all across the country seeking to end our ability to opt-out of the vaccination program through the use of personal and/or religious belief exemptions
Manufacturing Vaccine Mandates Through Lies
However, we are being lied to about vaccine need, vaccine safety and vaccination efficacy. Mainstream media is controlled by the pharmaceutical industry via billions of advertising dollars so you won’t get the truth from them; and many politicians are paid off through campaign contributions, so you won’t hear them bucking the system. So what we really have going on here is an edict created by the pharmaceutical industry and the CDC to increase the vaccination rate beyond its already super high rate and to do that by proposing and passing laws which would not allow us to opt-out of their vaccination programs

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is a big part of being a mother, even though it is as natural as giving birth, it does require practice, patience, and a little bit of understand of how it works.

With all the research I did to prepare myself for my at home delivery, breastfeeding was one of the topics I least delved into. My assumption was that my body and baby would naturally get together, that was that. I was in for a surprise of how I underestimated the task.

“Breast-feeding is more than being a good mom. And breast milk is much more than food: It’s potent medicine and, simultaneously, a powerful medium of communication between mothers and their babies.”

101 Reasons to Breastfeed Your Child

Breastmilk uses:

Freeze breastmilk in syringes for boo-boos, pink eye and colds! Brilliant!!!:

Human Breast milk is essential for Human baby development, no manufactured or stolen milk substitute was created by nature with the intention to ever be in OUR babies bodies.

Formula milk is laden with Sugar, Toxic chemicals, Fluoride,   and S(i)nthetic “minerals” that our adults body cannot properly digest let alone a developing child.

Toxic Baby Formula

“Nearly all commercial infant formulas contain substances your infant is better off avoiding, like corn syrup and AGEs, but it also is lacking in other key components that breast milk naturally provides. Chief among these are probiotics, friendly bacteria that help your body to thrive. Many infant formulas are more than 50 percent sugar — 43 percent being corn syrup solids, which means they’re also high in fructose. Metabolically, consuming fructose is very similar to alcohol on a chronic basis, so there appears to be a surprising similarity between giving your infant a can of soda, or a bottle of most conventional infant formulas.”  -Dr. Mercola

“Human milk isn’t sterile—it’s very much alive, filled with good bacteria, much like yogurt and naturally fermented pickles and kefir, that keep our digestive systems functioning properly. So mother’s milk contains not only the bacteria necessary to help a baby break down food, but the food for the bacteria themselves to thrive. A breast-feeding mother isn’t keeping one organism alive—but actually hundreds of thousands of them.”

Disturbing Mystery Food Given to Children

Crazy to see this on Pinterest. A nurse at my work created the poster. Public Health nurse Surrey, BC:

“…infants desperately need the natural vitamins found in breast milk. Nutritional deficiencies place infants at risk of developmental problems and infantile death. The commercial infant formulas are not a healthy option. The inability of manufacturers to properly mimic human breast milk and vitamins is shown in the reduced immune systems of children who are fed infant formulas. Statistics show that the nutritional deficiencies caused by infant formulas vastly increase the likelihood of childhood health.”

The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am

Why you should breast feed:

 :

Image result for breastfeeding affirmations

The first week of breastfeeding is the hardest, I had to supplement with pumped milk, due to a poor latch every feeding was very painful for me. After a month, we developed a better latch and I was no longer experiencing pain. In retrospect, I would have reduced the amount of times I used the pump vs breastfeeding. For a month my baby experienced colic/gas from air-swallowing due to the bottles, I experience painful engorgement and an imbalance of my fore-milk/hind-milk that toke months to correct. Fore-milk is very high in lactose, having an over supply leads to baby receiving more watery fore-milk vs the nutrient rich hind-milk, to much fore-milk can cause intestinal discomfort.

If you are considering pumping, looking deep into which pump will suit best for your needs.

Breastfeeding is uncomfortable, even painful. The nipples may look squashed or sculpted when they come out of baby’s mouth. The nipple skin may be cracked or blistered. When baby is latched well, the nipple goes deep into baby’s mouth, right to the back. The baby’s tongue does most of the work in getting the milk out; if the nipple is not far enough back, the tongue will rub or press on the nipple and cause pain.”

Creating Your Birth Kit

When preparing for a home delivery, your birth kit is essential. You want to start gathering your supplies sooner then later. You can deliver a healthy baby sooner then the expected 9 months mark. You need to be prepared, have the piece of mind of having a kit ready. During long  hiking trips or long periods away from home I had all my supplies in a small bin with me in the car. Keep in mind labor isn’t like the movies so don’t fret just be actively prepared. 


I gather my stuff from various places I will include hyperlinks to guide you as I go down the list. 

Birth kit supplies-

Must haves!!

Disposable chux underpad 30×30 (Get at Least 10. You be needing a few of these during and after birth.)

4×4 Sterile Gauze Pads (I would get a box at least a good amount on hand for possible tears that need attention.)

Note: With my son I tore quite a bit, three nice size gashes. They weren’t big enough that I felt I needed any stitches, I choose to heal naturally since at the time I didn’t think of buying a local anesthetic so that wasn’t going to happen. I used gauze soaked in the mother of my organic DIY healing cream (check pervious post). I kept everything clean using peroxide, sitz baths, and wet with healing oils. The cuts healed in 10 days. Make sure you have your mother cream ready to go!

Mother DIY Healing cream

(2) Peri bottles (One for peroxide for any wounds and the other for a sitz baths to cleanse yourself after labor, when you change your pads, or use the restroom.)

(2) Bed sheet protectors (For before and after birth, I made the mistake of not buying any and using a normal mattress protector intended for children. Don’t underestimate the amount of fluids come with labor.)

Organic Sitz bath Herbs (For soaking to help the healing process)

Food grade peroxide (I would suggest buying a concentrated version and diluting it to 3% yourself. You may need quite a bit, plus it’s good to have handy.)

Flex straws (trust me, go to the dollar store and get a box.)

Bulb syringe (To clear the airways after delivery)

Any type of disposable underwear (I would get 2 just for after birth, then you can switch to pads.)

Overnight pads (Cvs sells heavy overnight pads as well, you’ll need 1 1/2 – 2 weeks worth of pads. Postpartum bleeding is heavy. ) 

Surgical kit

Exam gloves (buy 4)

Gloves for suture set (buy set of 1)

Suture set with some sort pain reliever 

Scalpel with a few blades of it doesn’t come in your suture kit or new clean razor blades ( For cuting the cord or opening the sack.)

Cord tape

Cord string ( Any cotton string will do)

Optional-Tape measure

Optional- Weight scale (average baby weight is 6lbs)

Optional- Postpartum teas

Newborn needs-

Newborn hat ( get 2)

Newborn outfit (Long sleeves and pants)

Newborn socks

Receiving blanket (get at least 2, for during and after delivery)

Warm blanket

Muslin Swaddle blankets (great breastfeeding blankets later on)


Optional- Foot print

Optional-Certification live birth (we made our own How to… coming soon)

Box of zip locks ( 1 to hold your placenta and a few for organization) 

Note- Organization is important to be able to find what you need. Ziplocks and labeling is key.

Plastic bin to store everything (travel size preferably)

Towels (use your own or buy disposable ones

Paper towel (for cleanup)

Garbage bags (for clean up)

Cold pack (I used hard food ice packs for my back during labor. You may want to get something a little more fancy for comfort, this looks cool because it alternates cold/hot!)

Hot pack (Trust me, your back and boobs will thank me later)

Diapers

 I recommend Babyganics when it comes to disposables. 

Cloth diapers- We used Thirsties cover, snaps, with cloth prefolds, and a Wet bag. (Everything birth also offers cloth diapering options, though I did not purchase their products). 

If you don’t have access to laundry at home please get a min of 20 cloths and 3 covers, I would get that many either way. Get different sizes they grow fast!!!

Nurtured family is offering free wet bag with $110 purchase. Check out their sale/promotions see if it’s still valid and what their offering at the time. 

If your interested in a soft structure baby carrier they sell all kinds including the one I use and recommend Lillebaby 360 all season

DIY Baby Wipes

To continue my DIY series for baby and you…

This is my personal DIY All Purpose Baby wipes recipe.


Ingredients

  • 16oz of Distilled water
  • 1 tablespoons of Castile soap. I use Dr. Bronners Pure Liquid Castile in Lavender (I used this stuff a lot so I get the big bottle. They offer different sizes.)
  • 2 tablespoons of Organic cold pressed virgin Coconut oil (melted)
  • 3 drops Organic Lavender oil
  • 1 drop of Organic Tea tree oil (omit for super sensitive skin)
  • 1 drop of Organic Lemongrass or  Organic Jasmine oil (optional, I enjoy the smell combination with Lavender)

All scents are optional! I personally enjoy the scents. In public I leave the jar open for a bit after a diaper change to clear the air, if you know what I mean.

Other things you’ll need.

  • Roll of thick paper towel (I like the texturized ones for wipes- I believe I lasted used viva brand)
  • Container (I use old containers of coconut oil)

This 16 oz recipe makes enough to soak the whole roll of paper towel. Which is technical two batches.
How to make:

  1. Mix all you ingredients together in a separate container. I use an old 16oz juice bottle so I can store whatever I don’t use for later. Cut your paper towel in half with a knife down the center.
  2. Once you have two halves. Remove the inner cardboard.
  3. Stuff your roll of paper towel into your container of choice, then pour 8oz of you liquid.  (Each half is one batch of wipes. I happen to have two old coconut oil containers so I make both batches at once. If you choose to make one batch this time around store the other half in a ziplock and use only 8oz of your liquid combination and store the rest.)
  4. Let it soak for a few minutes, you can add more distilled water if they still seem dry after it absorbs the liquid.
