Introduced just in time for the heat of summer, new Lillipops Ice Soothies are specially formulated to reduce the symptoms of morning sickness in pregnant women.
The freeze pops are the brainchild of Denise Soden, a British mother of three who had suffered a severe version of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum during her first pregnancy. Speaking with London’s Daily Mail, Soden said â€˜It was so bad I waited seven years before I had my next child. When I became pregnant with Lilly in February 2006, I was terrified of becoming ill while I had to look after two children.â€™
She tried making homemade freeze pops during that pregnancy, and that seemed to relieve morning sickness symptoms such as nausea, dehydration and loss of appetite. Now she’s moved on to commercialize the product.
Soden named the product Lillipops after her daughter Lilly because she was with her when she came up with the idea.
Lillipops come in a variety of soothing flavors including ginger, lemon & mint, grapefruit & tangerine, and lime & vanilla. They contain no artificial flavors or colors. Product testing shows they ease nausea and heartburn, alleviate dry mouth, and help provide energy for tired mums.
Cost: about $10 for a box of 20. They’re available for purchase on the Lillipops website.
