BuggyLove Review & Giveaway!!!

Buggy Love is an organic set that is designed to keep your baby’s stroller and wear clean and smelling fresh. All the items on the set are organic and natural, their mission is to “green wash” baby wear to limit the amount of toxics and yucky stuff your baby is exposed to. I was given the Buggy Love Stroller Cleaning Kit to review. The kit includes 4 products: FreshLOVE, PolishLOVE, FabricLOVE & WheelLOVE + Tampico Scrub Brush, Reclaimed Microfiber Cloth and Carry-All Bag. Here are a few more details about each product:

  • FRESHLOVE- 8 oz. of exotic and soothing, organic, rosehip scented solution for all-over freshening. Life is short, it should smell sweet everywhere you go. Neutralize unpleasant scents on strollers, car seats, changing tables, play areas, bathrooms or, well…anywhere.
  • PURELOVE- 8 oz. of crisp, organic, tangerine scented solution for daily, on-the-go cleaning of life’s messy situations. Safe to use on toys, strollers, high chairs…yet strong enough to clean your house from top to bottom.
  • FABRICLOVE- See ya’ milk and formula spots! 4 oz. and/or 1 oz. of highly concentrated, organic, clementine scented solution for safe and effective use on most fabrics. Easily remove stains that appear on strollers, carseats, high chairs, and even your favorite chair or shirt.
  • WHEELLOVE- 1.5 oz. of the first-ever, all natural, stroller wheel lube that eliminates squeaks and squeals.
They are smell great! Very citrus-y and fresh, I was able to clean my daughters umbrella stroller, which was filthy!!! It took quite a bit to get it cleaned but all the products did what they said they would. I cleaned it on the balcony since I wasn’t sure how strong the smell would get, but it never got too bad. It was always pleasant and light. All the stains came off and the stroller really looks like new! I also strayed my daughter’s car seat and my son’s booster with the FRESHLOVE and they were both fascinated with their great smelling seats!

Colief Colic Relieve Drops Review and Giveaway!

My 6 year old son never had any colic, so when our daughter was born I was nether prepared or experience on colic. We had quite a few restless nights and days, there was nothing that would help her. As a fully breastfeeding mom I had no idea what do to! Until we found out she had a lactose intolerance so every time I eat dairy and nursed she got sick. I immediately changed my diet and the improvement was instant, no more crying fussy baby and no more crazy gas!  :-P I wished for something to help me through those hard times before we found the cause of my daughters discomfort. I wish I knew about Colief.
It wasn’t easy! giving up the cheese, butter, ICE CREAM!!! I got used to reading labels and still until today now that my daughter is 28 months, I still have to check on everything to make sure she won’t get a reaction. Needless to say I am prepared for the worst with this baby and I am glad I now know about these amazing drops. The Colief drops are ALL natural and contain lactase enzyme that helps digest milk. It can be used both with breast milk and formula before a baby’s feed. Colief has been prescribed in the U.K. and Ireland for over 15 years, it is now available in the U.S. Here’s how to use them:

Breastfeeding with Colief:

  • Express a few tablespoons of breast milk into a sterilized container.
  • Add 4 drops of Colief® Infant Drops.
  • Give this to your infant on a sterilized spoon before initiating breastfeeding.
  • Breast feed as normal.

Using Colief with formula:

  • Prepare your infant’s formula as per manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Add 4 drops of Colief® Infant Drops to the warm (not hot) formula.
  • Wait 30 minutes, shaking the formula occasionally, then feed your infant as normal,
    making sure that the formula is at the correct temperature.
  • Discard any unused formula.

My True Nature Travel Set Review and Giveaway!

My daughter has eczema (you won’t be able to tell because I am a skin freak) But she does, so I am really careful and always on the lookout for new natural products for her needy skin. So I was really thrilled when I got the chance to review My True Nature’s products. I was sent a Travel set that includes  a 4oz bottle of Dewey’s Bubble Bath and a 4oz bottle of Daisy’s 2-in-1 Shampoo/Body Wash. Most of their ingredients are locally sourced from organic farms in California and the Pacific Northwest. Those ingredients that are not produced locally come from Germany.

  • Rich in organic botanicals including aloe, plantain & white peony tea extracts, & pure essential oils.
My daughter LOVED the bubble bath, because of her sensitive skin I had never let her use a bubble bath so she was fascinated with all the huge bubbles and had so much fun she didn’t want to get out of the tub! The smell is very gentle and it left her skin soft and smelling great.

Car seat Canopy Whole Caboodle Review & Giveaway!!!

Here’s another awesome product I would’ve loved with my other two kids but I didn’t even know existed!!! infant carseat covers, I was a little puzzled with the idea but now I’m in love with it!!! I was given the Car seat Canopy whole Caboodle in the Knott pattern. Here are some reasons why these covers are awesome:

  • Let’s say you are not a first time mom or someone is letting you borrow their car sear, well if you don’t like the pattern, you’re having a different gender this time or if it just looks old you can cover it, and you won’t have to buy a new one.
  • You get great protection from the weather. When it’s sunny your baby doesn’t have to have the sun on his eyes, or if it’s cold and windy. I used a blanket to cover both of my kids when they were little and it is just dangerous you don’t have a good grip on the car seat, not to mention is falls off and usually doesn’t fit right.
  • It comes in super soft Minky fabric and with all the matching parts.
  • You can buy more than one pattern and switch them around!

I received the whole caboodle to review and I liked all the pieces and they were all easy to put on the car seat. The Minky Slip Cover is super soft, The Minky Head Support Pillow is awesome, both of my kids used something similar to this when they were little so it’s great to have on that matches everything else perfectly! If you are not familiar with these they help your baby’s head stay supported and in a comfortable position. The Baby Lap Blanket also with Minky is soft and I know I will be using it a lot this winter. I love the size, I hate how you are always dragging the regular size ones on the floor. The Replacement Umbrella with Minky Lining is the finishing touch for a complete change, It is a good size but smaller than the one my Britax Chaperone came with. It also comes with a Car Seat Canopy with Minky Interior and 100% Cotton, again I love the soft minky and I am excited to use it since my baby will be born in Winter, but it might be a little hot for summer babies (at least here in Texas).

If you missed any of that the Whole Caboodle is a complete matching set of all five Carseat Canopy™ products! here’s what it comes with:

  • Minky Slip Cover
  • Minky Head Support Pillow
  • Baby Lap Blanket with Minky Underside
  • Replacement Umbrella with Minky Lining
  • Car Seat Canopy with Minky Interior and 100% Cotton Outer
I can’t wait for Gael to come to try everything out! I am sure everyone will love it and it is going to be super useful in this windy and cold weather.

You can find Carseat Canopy on their websiteFacebook and Pinterest. Also, for a chance to win your own Whole Caboodle make sure you enter the giveaway. If you can’t wait and want to buy one of these make sure to go HERE. The Carseat Canopy Whole Caboodle retails for $79.95 and comes in many patterns and colors. Good Luck and thanks for reading!

mOmma Products Review & Giveaway!!!

I had the opportunity to review Lansinoh’s new line of feeding products called mOmma. I was so excited because everything was gorgeous!!! For my review I received:

mOmma Soft Bib: This is by far the coolest bib I’ve ever seen! It is made of a waterproof material and comes with 2 removable cotton bibs for easy cleaning. The colors are gorgeous and it is super flexible and adorable!

mOmma Warm Plate: Hot water is poured into the plate through a special hole to keep food warm during mealtime. It has two compartments, it has a wide non-slip base.

mOmma Soft Spoon and Fork: There’s 2 things I love about these. First it has an ergonomic design so it is easy for little hands to hold and second it comes with a cover that not only makes it great for taking it places with you but it can also be used to extend the handle. It also has a “roly-poly” which maintains it in the upright position to avoid contact with surfaces.

mOmma Non-Spill Cup: Again the ergonomic design is wonderful for little hands, it also rocks like the spoon and fork and it has a non-spill system which only delivers the liquid when the baby is sucking on it. It comes with a lid which most cups don’t and like all other mOmma products is BPA Free.

mOmma Cup with Straw: All the wonderful feature on the non-spill cup but with the straw option. Usually cups with straws aren’t non-spill but this cup is.

All mOmma products are BPA Free, and comes in gorgeous colors. I can’t wait to try them all out with my baby!  You can find mOmma on their websiteFacebook and Twitter. Also, for a chance to win your own mOmma diaper bag filled with an assortment of products make sure you enter the giveaway. Good Luck and thanks for reading!

Milk Bands Review & Giveaway!

If you are a nursing mom (take notes if you are planning to be) you’ll know what I mean when I say that I never remembered which side I nursed on until it was too late and one boob was bigger and more painful than the other one. It seems very silly to forget something like that but trust me it happens! When you are tired and sleep deprived it is so easy to forget the smallest and dumbest things (as well as the big important ones!) In comes a super clever item I just discovered myself and I am sure it will be a stable when my son is born! Milk Bands!!!

Milk Bands are a uniquely designed nursing bracelet that help you quickly and conveniently identify which breast you last used to feed your baby by simply turning the bracelet inside-out! They have time measuring sliders that can be used for multiple purposes such as tracking how long your baby fed or what time. They work regardless of which wrist they are worn on and are so easy to use it only takes one hand.

They are available in many colors, I received the yellow one for my review and I really like it! It is a nice color and I am sure I will be wearing it a lot! It actually already is on my hospital bag.  :-P I love that it comes with the little trackers so you know what time the feeding was or what time you have to feed again, and they also give you a few more just in case if  you loose any.

You can find Milk Bands on their website and Facebook. Also, for a chance to win your own Milk Band make sure you enter the giveaway. If you can wait to get your own, you can buy one HERE. Milk bands retail for $6.95. Good Luck and thanks for reading!

San Diego Bebe Nursing Pillow Review and Giveaway!!!

I’ve said this a few times already, there is certain things I MUST HAVE with my children and one of the most important to me is a nursing pillow. I just love them and can’t imagine being a fully breastfeeding mom without one. I actually know quite a few moms that don’t nurse their babies but love the convenience and bonding they get from feeding on a nursing pillow. Well, I found the mother of all nursing pillows and I am so thrilled to have the chance to try one out!
The San Diego Bebe nursing pillow was created by a mom of twins who had issues with all the nursing pillows on the market trying to feed her twins at the same time, so she created this awesome Eco-friendly nursing pillow. They are available in both a single and twin size. You might be wondering, what makes this it Eco-friendly? Well, it is made of 100% virgin polyfiber. Hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, non-flammable and recyclable. Odor-free, glue-free, foam-free, lead-free and Phthalate-free. And this is only the beginning with this wonderful product! This Nursing pillow also has many features and benefits that you just won’t find on most nursing pillows on the market right now.
Here is a list of everything you get:
Features and Benefits
1. Designed GREEN for your baby’s future
Made of 100% virgin polyfiber. Hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, non-flammable and recyclable. Odor-free, glue-free, foam-free, lead-free and Phthalate-free.
2. Signature Privacy Cover
Complete discretion while nursing! Lightweight mesh allows continuous airflow, and stores inside its own pocket when not in use. Easily detachable for quick machine wash-and-dry.
3. Signature Comfort Bolster
Complete perimeter bolster provides extraordinary support and comfort, surrounding your baby in soft, reassuring security. Extra piece of mind for mom, too.
4. Superior Surface Design
Patented angled surface design positions baby’s head and body towards mother’s breast, encouraging proper positioning, latch, suckle and swallow.
5. Detachable Back Pillow
Positionable anywhere along mother’s spine for optimum posture and comfort, helping to relieve back, shoulder and neck strain.
6. Comfortable Fit up to 52″ Waist
Adjustable waist strap with Quiet-Squeeze™ buckle keeps pillow secure.
7. Luxe Fabrics & Chic Colors
High-quality fabric covers are removable for machine wash-and-dry. Wrinkle-free and lead-free (no zippers or snaps).
8. Convenient Dual Pockets
Elasticized “Bottle Holsters” on one side of pillow, second pocket for remote or cell phone on the other side. Holds everything necessary within close reach.

I can’t tell you enough how impressed I am with this nursing pillow, the features are not only great but things I have actually wished for while nursing my kids in the past. Here are some of the reasons why I personally love this nursing pillow:

  • Having water withing reach has been essential to me while nursing and sometimes you forget or just don’t have anywhere to put it, the side pockets are great to hold anything you might need including that very important water! Not to mention your cellphone, there’s nothing worse than sitting for a feeding and having your phone ring once your baby has latched and you are both comfortable!
  • I love the back support which is such a big complain with nursing moms. I used to put pillows and need help to get comfortable every time, well not anymore!
  • I am a little embarrassed to admit I have fallen asleep while nursing and then wake up horrified to think I could have dropped my baby (I actually know someone who did drop their baby like that!) well it is obviously not recommended but it gives me some peace of mind to know I can strap the pillow to my waist and the perimeter bolster with help the baby stay in place.
  • And last I love everything machine washable!!! And nursing pillows gets so dirty it’s wonderful to know you can just toss it on the washer and forget about it! Who has time to hand wash when you are new mom!?!?!

I can’t wait for Gael to come, we are both going to be so spoiled with this nursing pillow! Make sure to stay tuned as I will be posting about my experiences with this nursing pillow once he comes :)

Top 9 Wish List for a Baby Shower: Guest post by Bloom Maternity

This is a guest post from Ellen Evans from Bloom MaternityEllen Evans blogs about maternity and baby things at Bloom Maternity; about her life as a mom to “Sunbeam” and “Firecracker” at http://bloomdiaries.com; and assembling her recipe book at http://thehipvegetarian.com.

Looking back to when I had my first child four years ago, I’ve noticed that the maternity market changed as fast as the seasons.  There is a plethora of accessories and baby items available now that weren’t even on the market a year to 4 years ago.

So if I was to have a baby shower tomorrow, here’s my top 9 wish list.

Let’s be honest, those hospital gowns are less than desirable. If I’m ever in the labor room again I’ll be wearing Pretty Pusher’s “I’m Dreaming of Coffee”  Delivery Gown. If I take the time to make sure I’m waxed and pedicured for the grand event, then I’m going to make sure I’m wearing a gown that worthy of birthing Oscar.

The Belly Bandit: With the birth of my first child, all my Latino co-workers told me that I really needed a “waist belt” to help train my waist back to its pre-pregnancy figure. At the time I searched high and low for such an item that seems to be the secret to beauty in the Latino culture, but my cute little boutique shop owners just didn’t know of anything on the market — yet.

 

ShrinxHips: Just like the Belly Bandit is designed for your waist, ShrinxHips is designed to provide constant, even pressure to gently guide your hips back to the pre-pregnancy position or smaller.  However you only have a small window of opportunity for this item – during the first eight weeks of post-delivery while you have Relaxin in your system which helps your pelvic joints and ligaments to soften.

 

 

Milk Saver:  This breast milk reservoir fits into your bra cup helping you save every precious drop of milk during your “let-down.” I always called breast milk liquid gold and hated it whenever an ounce was wasted or lost.

Padalily is a stylish handle cushion that wraps around the handle of the baby’s car seat – making it a little bit more comfortable for you to carry that heavy car seat around.  Later the cushion can be placed on a seat belt so it doesn’t rub against a child’s neck. Ingenious.

When we had baby #2, we had to invest in a double stroller, although we had dropped a pretty penny on our first single stroller.  If I was given a redo, I would purchase an inline stroller like the phil&teds brand because it actually grows with your family.  When you add a second child then all you need to do is buy the doubles seat that runs any where from $99-$149 depending on the style.  The unique double kit seat clips easily to the front or rear to take one or two kids from lie-flat newborn to upright 5 year olds.

JJ Cole Pacifier Clip has really designed some fun styles making baby clips fashionable. My favorite styles for this season are White Vroom and Sky Clover for boys; and Lemon Posey for girls.

As a new mother I constantly worried about whether I was producing enough breast milk.  Now I would just use the Milkscreen Calculator to help ease those concerns. After taking the test you can learn if you’re producing enough milk and if you’re production is normal, low or high.

Matching snaps on a crying baby can be stressful at times, and my most favorite baby item to give to my friends is the Magnificent Baby Layette. Magnificent Baby’s easy-to-use magnetic fasteners will have a baby dress in seconds. Oh, how I wish this was invented four years ago! I did use this on baby number 2 until he was 10 months old and the magnets held together like a dream while he crawled.

Well that’s a wrap on my baby shower “wish list.” What baby items are your favorite to give at showers – or which items would you add to your list?

And the winners are………….(for Week 2 of the Virtual Baby Shower)

Boogie Wipes Review & Giveaway

Do your kids get stuffy when they are teething too? My daughter does and it really brakes my heart, none of her teeth have been as problematic as her molars, Oh my! She’s been stuffy, moody and sleepy. After a week of wiping her nose with tissues it started looking raw and red. I had the chance to review Boogie wipes and they were heaven sent!

Boogie Wipes are little saline wipes to help dissolve and clean little ones noses. They are way ticker than regular wipes and much more gentle. They come in different scents, including menthol which is awesome when they are all stuffed up. All scents are alcohol free and moisturize with vitamin E and Aloe.

We tried the Fresh Scent ones and not only they smell really good but they are super soothing and soft. My daughter hasn’t ran away from me when I try to clean her nose since we started using these. Her nose is also much better no more red and sore little nose! I really recommend having some Boogie Wipes on hand at all times for allergies, teething and flu season, they really are little life savers!

You can find Boogie Wipes on their websiteFacebook and twitter. Also, for a chance to win 2 packs of Boogie Wipes of your own make sure you enter the giveaway. Good Luck and thanks for reading!

Cloud B Tranquil Turtle Review and Giveaway!

I was super lucky to receive the brand new Tranquil Turtle from Cloud b to review. Since my baby is not here yet, I decided to let my daughter give it a try. We’ve been struggling a bit trying to get her to sleep on her new bed so this came at a perfect time! The Tranquuil Turtle is gorgeous and so well made, I instantly feel in love with the soft fabric and wonderful colors, it also features soothing sounds and it projects a magical underwater light effect that even I was amazed by with a wave motion. You can adjust brightness using Slide Control. Auto shut-off after 23 minutes. 3 AA batteries included.

But does it really help children sleep? I went on with my daughters regular routine, bath, book, lay in bed for a little bit but for this last part I made sure to turn on the Tranquil Turtle and placed it next to her. She was fascinated with the lights and sounds, and within 5 minutes she was asleep! I can’t tell you how happy that made me, we’ve had a few bad nights since (she is teething) But I can really see an improvement on how fast she falls asleep.

I would recommend this to all moms who are training their kids to stay in there beds. I can honestly tell you it really helped. I might have to buy a second one for my little baby since my daughter loves this one so much! It would also make a wonderful baby shower gift, I am sure little babies would love this awesome little turtle.

Here are some features from their website:

  • Projects a magical underwater light effect
  • Shell glows in relaxing Aquamarine color
  • Plays 2 soothing sounds: Tranquil Melody & Ocean Waves
  • All ages

You can find Cloud B on their websiteFacebook and twitter. Also, for a chance to win a Nursing Pillow of your own make sure you enter the giveaway. Good Luck and thanks for reading!

Hot Slings Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway

I never used a baby carrier or sling with our son. It just seem dangerous and weird to me at the time, keep in mind this was 6 years ago. With our daughter someone gave me a handmade sling and I was still uncertain of the safety, I still used it quite a bit  and loved the idea, since my daughter hated her infant car seat from day 1. But the idea of trusting a handmade sling with my baby’s life didn’t seem right. So this time when I was offered to try a Hot Slings Baby Carrier I was thrilled!

First of their patterns are beautiful! And comes in such a variety of colors you are sure to fine one you’ll love. I chose the Moonlit Sky pattern and I have to say the picture online doesn’t do it justice, it is gorgeous! You need to make sure you choose the right size for a good fit, but not to worry they offer a sizing chart on their website so you can make the right choice.

I am really excited to use my new sling with my baby boy! Make sure to stay tuned for an update on how that goes! :) I will be posting a full review when he comes.

Balboa Baby Nursing Pillow Review and Giveaway!

Someone told me the other day that all you need when you have a baby is your boobs. That’s it! I understand it but I am one of those needy moms that are extremely grateful of all the wonderful things to make my job as a mom easier. Nursing pillows are one of my weakness and I can honestly say I wouldn’t be able to live without one. So as you can image I was thrilled when I got to review a Nursing Pillow from Balboa Baby. Balboa Baby makes not only stylish but super simple and uncomplicated nursing pillows, and that’s great since nursing can be crazy and complicated at the beginning.

The Balboa Baby nursing pillow comes in beautiful prints and patterns that are sure to please even the toughest critics. The covers are removable, machine washable and 100% Cotton which is a great help, the baby is going to be spitting up on it and milk spills. Nursing Pillows help bring your baby to the breast level to avoid having to bend down and arching your back, and less things that make your back ache are a true blessing. The Balboa Baby Nursing pillow is made of memory foam and helps your baby find the right position while nursing.

Balboa Baby was developed, tested and recommended by Dr. Sears. If the name sounds familiar is because Dr. Sears is the best selling author of “The Baby Book” and 30 other books on childcare. He’s been featured in over 100 TV shows and he develops his products focusing on versatility, comfort and safety.

I can’t wait to try this awesome nursing pillow with my baby boy, I received the Nursing Pillow on the Suri pattern and I love it! The material is high quality, the foam is sturdy and really comfortable.

Baby Magic: Rub a Duck Tub Review and Giveaway!

I received a Baby Magic Rub a Duck Tub to review. I wanted to save it for my baby boy coming this November but I couldn’t wait and decided to try it on my daughter. I love it and so does she! Here are some of the features of the set:

  • The Gift Basket includes: lavender calming baby bath, soft gentle hair and body wash, original scent gentle baby lotion and a free rubber duckie bath pouf
  • Baby magic calming baby bath is an easy-rinsing, tear-free formula designed to help soothe and relax your baby
  • Baby magic soft baby scent hair and body wash is their original formula with a light scent formulated especially for sensitive skin
  • Baby magic original baby lotion is a rich, creamy lotion formulated to absorb quickly, while softening and nourishing your baby’s skin
  • A free rubber duckie bath pouf
  • My also included a 1 yr subscription to Parents Magazine.
Baby Magic Gift Baskets are awesome gifts for baby showers and new moms. There’s nothing better and more soothing than taking a bath with a lavender wash, and Baby Magic’s Lavender wash gives your baby the same wonderful feeling and helps them sleep better at night, and for new moms a good night sleep can become a true luxury.
For baths in the morning Baby Magic’s Hair & Body wash has that baby smell we all love, you know what I am talking about, that smell that makes you want to sniff a baby over and over. I most confess I loved my daughter smelling like that again, it was almost like she was a little baby again. And the Baby Lotion is the perfect touch after the wash, it leaves babies skin soft and with a soft pleasant scent.
My daughter also loved the pouf with the rubber ducky, she played with it for a long time and scrubbed herself with it. We also love the little tub that everything came in, and we are now using it to hold toys in the tub. I really appreciate how this is such a wonderful present where everything is so useful and great!
