This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nutrimom. All opinions are 100% mine.
Since my last post about the Nutrimom app last month, I wanted to give you ladies an update on how things are going with my Personal Coaching. My Nutrimom Coach and I have had our second one-on-one session (which you may have seen a few snippets of on Snapchat — my username is irinabond), and I’ve made some progress towards the goals we set.
One-on-One Sessions and Ongoing Messaging
I’m continuing to message my Nutrimom Coach, Rachel, within the app whenever I have questions, and she always responds promptly with helpful personalized suggestions based on what she learns in our one-on-one sessions (see the photo below of my iPhone screen). She checks in weekly on the food shopping and meal prepping goals I’ve currently set with her, making me feel accountable to her. At the same time, she’s not policing me either, just serving as that push that I needed.
“Perfect is boring! Instead of perfection, aim for everyday successes in whatever goal you are tackling. Acknowledging a success, however minute […], can help you build upon those positive goals. We tend to focus on all the ‘bad’ things we did through the day, which makes it more difficult to see past what we consider failures and keep moving towards our goals. When we instead find those silver linings of the day and let go of any of our guilt and negative self talk, we allow ourselves to move forwards. […] Continue to find your silver linings.” — Rachel, my Nutrimom Coach
We’re also working on creating a more regular sleep schedule for Vienna. She’s pointed out a few things I hadn’t realized, and I’ve made a few changes that have helped with Vienna’s sleep (specifically her daytime naps). Sometimes you just need an extra set of outsides eyes and ears to see things clearly.
She goes above and beyond and researches things for me, such as if there are any better ways to clear Vienna’s nose during her recent cold. Poor baby isn’t a fan of the nasal aspirator, and Rachel gave me suggestions to help make it as less uncomfortable for her as possible.
We adjust my goals as our needs change in the moment, and next we’ll probably be working on stress management skills since blogging seems to be picking up, and I’m sometimes struggling to manage being a SAHM, wife, and running a small business.
Science-Based Nutrition and Wellness Articles
Nutrimom also offers webinars and group coaching sessions on topics ranging from Lactation to Physical Activity as well as a large library of articles on Healthy Eating, Healthy Feeding, Supplementation, Healthy Taste Development, Hydration, Sleep, Stress Management, Recipes, and Week-by-Week Pregnancy and Baby updates.
I love that the articles are science-based and are structured with a What to Know and a What To Do tab, easy bullet points, and related articles below that.
In addition to the coaching and science-based articles, Nutrimom has a specialized line of nutrition products for every stage of baby’s development. It’s a complete program, from the digital to the physical aspect. For a breastfeeding mama like me, there is an Apricot & Cashew Bar, Super Fruit Bar, and Breastfeeding & Postnatal Supplements.
Everything is designed to help support moms and moms-to-be throughout the first 1,000 days of baby’s development from pregnancy to age 2. Like I wrote in my first Nutrimom post, this kind of support seemed to be missing in my experience as a new mom, and I wish the program had existed when I was pregnant!
My next and final post will be about the Nutrimom subscription box, so stay tuned!
