gelmix all-natural breastmilk & formula thickener giveaway - 5 will win!



Ethan and I are both so excited to make this post! If you've been a reader of mine for a while, you've most likely read my Gelmix praises (here and here, respectively). It's been the greatest honor in the world to work with Gelmix and the icing on the proverbial cake is that they're hosting this fantastic giveaway for my readers! Five readers will have the chance to win a 4.4 ounce jar of Gelmix (a $20 value)!

As I've mentioned in the past, Ethan has been on Gelmix since he was one month and five days old. Ethan was one of the estimated 50% of babies who suffer from reflux. As a parent, you feel helpless watching your child vomit up every last drop that goes in his mouth. Watching him squirm in discomfort and pain while eating isn't any better. ...And don't get me started on the choking. I was keeping an aspirator in nearly every room in our home in case I needed quick access. Reflux is a scary thing and a serious thing. When I began researching, I read that there weren't many options out there aside from calorie-heavy, nutritionally-lacking rice cereal and prescription medication. Ethan was so tiny and it pained me to think about medicating him or filling his bottle up with unnecessary calories. Thankfully, our pediatrician was on our same page. She mentioned Gelmix and sent us home with some samples. The results were instant. Since that first bottle, no one would believe that Ethan has reflux. With his bottles naturally thickened, he's able to eat comfortably, keep his food down and grow like any baby should.

So how does it work? What really is Gelmix? What makes it so special?
  • It is mainly derived from the powder obtain from the grinding of the Carob bean seed endosperm also called Carob Bean Gum.
  • Although ready-to-feed options exist, they do not offer you the ability to use your current infant’s formula, including but not limited to hypoallergenic, semi-hypoallergenic, soy or lactose-free.
  • Gelmix dissolves almost completely in warm liquids, absorbing surrounding humidity like a sponge, effectively thickening the preparation.
  • Gelmix allows you to thicken your own breastmilk at home without loading your perfectly balanced milk with unhealthy fillers. Gelmix will not be broken down by enzymes contained in breast milk.
  • Rice cereal takes the place of the formula and of the nutrients your baby needs. They feel full faster, eat less of the good things and might even struggle to digest such a large amount. Gelmix adds so little that your baby can enjoy more of what is important to her.

Every mom wants to provide the best for their little ones and Gelmix allows that to happen. An organic, all-natural option is available for babies suffering from reflux and here's your chance to win a jar to try! This giveaway is open to US residents and closes on November 30th, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Have a little one with reflux? Know someone who does? Gelmix is the answer to all of our wishes as parents to a little one with reflux -- and it warms my heart to know that five of my readers will have the chance to win this life changing product!





Gelmix is offering FIVE of my readers a chance to win a 4.4 ounce jar of Gelmix thickener, a $20 value!

  39. Learned from Gelmix.com that most pediatricians in the US are unaware of carob bean gum to be used as a thickener.
