A BabyBjörn Bouncer Mini Giveaway

Most of us love to cuddle and hold our babies when they are little, but there are many reasons why we also need a comfy and safe place to put them down.

And some of us just need a break. When any of these opportunities present themselves, and we have a little one with us, we need to put … Continue reading

Providing Your Baby with Teething Comfort #MunchMittTeether

Teething Comfort

Providing your baby with teething comfort is no easy task! However, I have found a product that will definitely help provide your little one with some teething comfort in a new and convenient way! Teething Comfort: The Munch Mitt, a baby teething mitten! I will never forget my teething babies. I remember feeling so badly for the discomfort that they were in, as well as a sense of helplessness.

How to Make Your Coat Fit When You are Pregnant

Make My Belly Fit

In October of this year, the weather started to turn cold a bit quicker than I had anticipated. Being 8 months pregnant, while I wanted an excuse to buy a new coat, it didn’t seem practical with only one month to go. I went to a local women’s clothing store and picked myself up a nice shawl-like sweater in hopes that it would see me through the rest of October and into November (my C-section was booked for November 14). After a few weeks, the shawl/sweater was not cutting it. It was around this same time that I learned how … Continue reading

The Flying Squirrel Sleep Miracle for Toddlers! {Giveaway}

Flying Squirrel Giveaway

It seems so long ago now that I posted a review of the Zipadee Zip. It was back in January of 2013 that I was desperate to find a way to get my little one to sleep well without having to worry about her constantly breaking out of her swaddle and waking up. My daughter is now almost two (where has the time gone?) and has been in regular pajamas for a while now. I still rave about the Zippy and have been following Zipadeezip Slumber Sacks on Facebook.

4-in-1 Touch Steering SmarTrike Review

SmartTrike

I had the opportunity to experience and review the 4-in-1 Touch Steering Chic tricycle with my 2-year-old son, and we have become huge fans. Given his age and independent spirit, we skipped directly to Stage Three (the learn to pedal stage). When our box arrived, my son was over the moon to put together his treat. As the baby in the family, he’s used to quite a few hand-me-downs, and this trike was ALL for him, so he was giddy with excitement. While he was excited, I was a bit nervous. Was I going to be able to put this … Continue reading
