As soon as it arrived at our house, my 4 year old daughter was super excited that we got a copy as she had seen commercials for it. I have to say, after having watched it now myself, she is going to have to wait a couple of years for this one. Although it is rated G for a General audience of all ages, I do feel that some of the scenes are … Continue reading

We had the opportunity to review MilkBank’s storage system along with a Vented Feeding Bottle and boy am I ever glad we did. My four month old son is fully breastfed, however, he has taken bottles on the occasion right from birth. With all of the scares due to plastics … Continue reading
