Trubaby Body and Hair Wash Giveaway

Enter to win a Trukid Trubaby body and hair wash/cleanser for your child! 

This giveaway will run from Feb. 15, 2013 - March 3, 2013 (11:59pm PST).

Trubaby Body and Hair Wash Review

I came across Trukid TruBaby Bubbly Baby Body and Hair Wash while looking for a cleanser for my son, who has sensitive skin. I am careful with shampoo and body wash products for him, but he usually has some sort of reaction. I performed a patch test on his arm and he had no reactions last week, so we used it during bath time this week.

Surgery Recovery Tips for a Tonsillectomy

I haven't been posting lately due to a tonsillectomy five days ago. The procedure itself was not so bad, but the nausea from medications is the worst thing I've ever felt. Hopefully the tips below will help you before your surgery or procedure.

1. If you are prone to nausea, let the anesthesiologist or doctor know. I have a weak stomach when it comes to medications, but I never had anesthesia before my procedure so I didn't think to let them know. As soon as I woke up in the recovery room, I vomited every 15 minutes which was horrible combined with the throat pain.

2. Do not take pain medications on an empty stomach. This sounds simple enough, but when your throat is in pain the last thing you want to do is swallow food. If it's too painful to eat, I would suggest drinking Ensure Clear and to avoid products with milk or dairy. This will thicken your mucus, which will make you want to gag. Mashed potatoes and sliced peaches worked for me. Popsicles are also a great treat.

3. Do not sleep on a flat surface; stack 2-3 pillows. This has helped with breathing and since I have acid reflux, I generally use 2 pillows at night.

4. Be creative with fluid intake. The most important thing is to keep yourself hydrated, but after 4-5 days you will be tired of water. Try drinks with vitamins and minerals, and non-acidic liquids that won't upset your stomach, like apple juice (Gatorade, Ensure). Smoothies are also great for your throat, but make sure you don't use acidic ingredients such as orange juice or strawberries.

5. Brush teeth and tongue gently and maintain daily oral hygiene habits. The horrible taste in your mouth will make you want to brush all the time, but be careful. The bubbles from the toothpaste can slide down your throat, causing you to choke or cough. Try not to cough and if you need to, cough gently.

So far, the throat pain isn't so bad. It's the nausea and constant vomiting feeling that feels worse for me. For the first 3 days, take your medication every 4 hours, and then reduce it to as needed if possible.

Good luck with your recovery and I hope these tips help.

Morningstar Farms Foods


I've been eating Morningstar Farms foods for the past two years and I love the quality and taste. If you don't have much time in your day to cook meals, you can grab a veggie burger/patty, two slices of bread, add any kind of sauce you like, and voila! You have a sandwich that gives you a great amount of protein.

My favorite is the mushroom burger. I also enjoy the chick'n herb one. I wish the stores near me would carry more flavors! The beefless beef has been great for tacos and stir-fry.

*I'm a BzzAgent and received MorningStar Farms coupons to conduct my review. All opinions are mine and are based on actual use of the product.
