Thankful Thursdays

Today I am sooooo thankful for something that makes my life easier. Today I am wondering why it has taken me so long to find this amazing product. It is called SimplyThick. It is a gel beverage thickener. I know you probably wonder why I get excited over things like this.

Josh needs all of his liquids thickened to a nector consistency. We have been down this route before and I HATED it. Before I used this stuff called Thick-It... a powder you mixed in. It was gritty, never fully dissolved and if left for periods of time (like 45 min) it would settle and I found myself constantly shaking Josh's sippy cup all day. Plus I put it in his formula a couple times and it clogged the pump every time. So anyway this time around I was less than thrilled when I found out we had to go back to thickened liquids. (He is refluxing thin... we had a swallow study done yesterday at PCMC) But once again my friend Jessica mailed me some samples of this Simply Thick gel. I am in heaven! It mixes in seconds... stays mixed forever and even for several days. I have been thickening Josh's formula and had no problems whatsoever. It is amazing stuff!!!

So today I am VERY thankful for Jessica and pointing me in the right direction. I am soooo glad there are products out there to help me when we come across these problems.

So three cheers for Simply Thick!!!

In case you want/need to use this product... here is where you go.
