One of our lovely clients Amanda shares her kids' health stories and how Childlife Essentials Vitamins help them below. Her children are Madison (2 and a half years old) and Paige (6 months old).
"Madison was diagnosed as failure to thrive at 4 months old as well as having severe colic and reflux. She failed to gain enough weight even on formula and with Gaviscon to help the reflux. The Gaviscon had other side effects such as constipation which was then treated with laxatives.
This was very hard on our family to try to deal with all of this as well as try to understand why she was this way. When she started solids all started to go well and she gained some weight but that soon changed when we realised we could not move her from purees to anything with lumps, pips or texture. She was diagnosed with textural adversity syndrome and things became even harder.
Finding foods with nutritional value that weren’t high in fat or sugar became very difficult and working part time and looking after all her needs as well as trying to make all her meals which were different from ours started to take its toll on my health both mentally and physically. This is when we turned to Childlife Essentials for a nutritional supplement to bridge the gap in her nutrition.
Madison immediately loved these vitamins and reminds me every morning to give them to her. She takes the ChildLife Multi Vitamin & Mineral, the Liquid Calcium with Magnesium and the Vitamin D3 on a daily basis. She has started to look a lot brighter and happier as well as gain some weight. She has always been quite an intelligent kid hitting her milestones early but since starting these supplements she has taken off further.
I love how these vitamins are all natural, and some organic, and come in fantastic flavours. The ChildLife Aller-Care is absolutely amazing and works so quickly when she is bitten, she comes out in huge welts when she has insect bites. These have been a godsend and we are so happy to have found it and cannot recommend it enough to all families even if your children are not sick this can help bridge the gap in their diets.
My second daughter Paige has suffered from reflux and wind since birth. We were given Gaviscon for her reflux but she had an adverse reaction and went floppy so we decided to take her off it. We have been using the ChildLife Organic Gripe Water with her now for about 5 months. We have not noticed too much difference with her reflux but winding her has become slightly easier. She loves the taste and it goes down so easy. These also have an amazing flavour." - Amanda
