Happy "Tubieversary," sweet Aubrie. September.14th, 2021 We Celebrate her 1 year with her feeding tube. So many emotions went through our minds and heart. We were all scared of the unknown, but this was the only Next step for our Queen. I cried a lot, but ultimately we knew this was best for her. To say Aubrie is thriving is an understatement. AUBRIE IS THRIVING. She is blooming, loving school, making friends, staying healthy, and thanks to her new formula @essentialcarejr (truly corn-free amino acid formula) and her feeding tube, she is now on the growth chart❤ she is happy and loving life. Thrive, baby, thrive!! Thank you to my mama @2meme45, my husband @g.labile, and my sisters @angielabeaune & @ninabebi; without the support it would have been so much harder.😘 #feedingtube #feedingtubelife #toddlertubie #tubielife #tubiemama #cornfree #anaphylaxis #fpies #eoe #mcas #allergies #feedingtube
School lunches can sometimes be boring, or unhealthy, but in our home we try to make things fun and healthy. Having food allergies makes things a little harder too, but when you have a great company like @scharglutenfree makes things, fun, safe and healthy. Lunch consists of half a baguette. One sandwich with ham and the other with pepperoni, vegan mayo, and lettuce. The lunchbox contains organic mango, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes. Easy, fun & satisfying.

PRODUCT REVIEW- Picture 2 is before @bldgactive And picture 3 is after one month of using @bldgactive. **No stinging and can be safely used all over, even the eyes. It works just like white blood cells to help our bodies recover faster.** We have had so much trouble with infections and granulation tissue around the stoma. We were given many different types of prescription creams, oral medication (put through gtube), and we used Granulotion, and NOTHING WORKED! After hearing @just.ingredients share about @bldgactive, I reached out to the company to ask some questions. 1. Was it safe for me to use on a Gtube site. 2. Was it free from corn and corn derivatives. @bldgactive was fast to answer my emails. Great customer service! After about a month of using @bldgactive on Aubrie's Gtube site, im happy to say her site has never looked this beautiful. Aubrie has had her Gtube for almost one year. #gtubelife #foodallergymom #allergy #anaphylaxis #gtubetoddler #gtubekinder #activeskincare #gtubesite #feedingtubeawareness #feedingtubelife
🌸FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL🌸 2012-2022🌸 I can't believe we have a Kinder and a 6th grader. So many emotions this year as our sweet Queen will be on Campus. A little scary. But our school went above and beyond and hired/provided a nurse to shadow and keep her safe. She will be giving meds, cleaning the Gtube site, and cleaning her space where she eats, helps with feeding, and anything else she might need help with. The nurse will be with her Monday- Friday from 8:20 am-3 pm Aeverie walked Beauty and herself to her homeroom class did the sweeping of her class (and other classrooms she will be in). She has grown into a beautiful and responsible young lady. We are PROUD PARENTS/ GRANDPARENTS. Thank you @mabelslabels for the rose confetti and making durable labels for all of our school/medical supplies. #firstdayofschool #firstdayofschool2021 #mableslabels #cra #communityrootsacademy #feedingtube #feedingtubelife #gtubelife #gtube
Pause throughout the day and witness yourself. What are you thinking? How are you feeling? How are you speaking? Practice. This is how you gain self awareness. Practiceing self awareness leads to self Iove. Time spent with my girls and my mom are so rewarding. We have always been together, but now more than ever through some of the most challenging times. Family is everything. #familytime #family #labile #labilefamily

My Queen. She is strong. She is brave. She survives. She is powerful. She is full of life. Life has been hard for her tiny body, but she is a fighter. We have been told rude remarks by people that don't mind their business. Yes she is 5, she wears @get.dyper, has a feeding tube and loves to play with small tiny toys. She means so much to me. She has taught me not to take things for granted in life. #gtubelife #toddlersofinstagram #gtubetoddler #feedingtubeawareness #feedingtube #feedingtubelife #foodallergymom #eoe #mcas #fpiestoddler #fpies #fpies

Have you ever wondered about CBD? Here is one myth that people have. A common misconception of CBD is that it gets you high. People are hesitant about using CBD products because many believe it gets you high. CBD does not make you high, and it doesn’t have any sedative effects. You can go about your day as usual when using CBD and you’ll feel an overall sense of relaxation. This @beakandskiffresearch is subtly sweet and slightly tangy. Zero calories. Zero Sugar and Gluten Free. Great post-workout, pre-snooze or anytime you feel like hydrating with a boost! @beakandskiffresearch CBD is always third party tested to ensure that you we are getting a high quality product, not all CBD is created equal! #FullSpectrumHydration #NormalizeCBD #CBDwellness #BeakAndSkiffResearch #cbd #cbdwellness #cbdbenefits
FOOD ALLERGY AWARENESS WEEK has come to its last day, and for our 4th #giveaway, we have partnered with our friends over at @mabelslabels to give one lucky winner a pack of food allergy customizable stickers. Did you know I was diagnosed with a peanut and tree nut allergy at the age of 13? And then, when I was 22, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and at the age of 28, I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy🙈 im now having trouble with corn and shellfish. Enter the giveaway 1. Like this post. 2. Tag your friends. 3. Tell me how old you were or your loved one when diagnosed with food allergies. BONUS, share this post on your stories and tag us! This giveaway is not sponsored by Instagram. Myth: A food allergy always develops in childhood. Then you’re stuck with it for life. Fact: You can develop a food allergy at any age, even food that you’ve safely eaten before. Children may outgrow a food allergy over time. This is common with allergies to milk, egg, soy, and wheat. Allergies that are harder to outgrow include peanut, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish. Resource @foodallergy

FOOD ALLERGY AWARENESS WEEK GIVEAWAY #2 @flax4life is a lifesaver type of company you need to have in your pantry (they do contain eggs). They are allergen-friendly, free from dairy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, and they have OMEGAS but not from fish!! Omegas come from flax seeds. ENTRY RULES 1. Like the post. 2. Tag a friend. 3. Tell us who has allergies in your life. The winner will get a box of single samples & a $25 gift card to buy what you want on the @flax4life website. This giveaway is not sponsored by Instagram. Myth: Eating a little bit won’t hurt. Fact: For someone with a food allergy, even a trace of a food allergen can trigger a severe reaction. You must remove the allergen completely from your diet to stay safe and live well. Avoiding cross-contact between a safe food and your food allergen is just as important as avoiding the allergen itself. Cross-contact occurs when an allergen is accidentally transferred from one food to another. The food that was safe before is now dangerous for people with that food allergy. @foodallergy #foodallergyawareness #foodallergies #flax #flax4life #healthy #guthealth #allergenfriendly #giveaway #anaphylaxis #muffins #cookies

A food allergy is a medical condition in which exposure to a food triggers a harmful immune response. The immune response called an allergic reaction occurs because the immune system attacks proteins in the normally harmless food. The proteins that trigger the reaction are called allergens. The symptoms of an allergic reaction to food can range from mild (itchy mouth, a few hives) to severe (throat tightening, difficulty breathing). Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that is sudden in onset and can cause death.
