Product Review: MilkBank from DexBaby

Parent Bloggers recently provided me with a really cool bottle and milk storage system made by DexBaby. Yes, these bottles are all free from Phthalates, PVC and BPA, which we all know is a worry these days when it comes to baby products, specifically bottles for our precious little ones. 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

REVIEW: Nutrition CD Jump with Jill

My family loves music! Both my husband and I have musical backgrounds and both of us have a dream that our children will share that love with us. Being a former Kindergarten teacher, I also have a secret love for children’s music. I love to sing and children’s songs are so easy to sing along to. Of course, I don’t listen to children’s music by choice unless my children are with me (just had to clarify that). I am always super keen to hear new music that is made for children so when I was contacted about a cd called … Continue reading

Product Review: Mama Mio Skincare

I’ve sampled Mama Mio skincare products before, and I’ve been fortunate enough to try out even more! I have to say that using these amazing skincare products is definitely a treat for me. They work so well and smell so yummy. Here are the products that I was lucky enough to try out this time: Shower Cream Body Buff Shrink to Fit Wonderfull Balm I have to say that by far, my most favourite product was definitely the Shrink to Fit cream. It leaves your body tingling for hours after application so I am reminded that it is working hard … Continue reading

Product Review: Baby Bee Diaper Ointment

I was fortunate enough to receive a sample of Baby Bee Diaper Ointment by Burt’s Bees. I love my Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, so I was super excited to try out something for Little Man. The vitamin E in the ointment nourishes while zinc oxide and beeswax create a natural barrier to keep baby’s bum as dry as possible. I really like the Diaper Ointment, especially the scent, however unfortunately we tried it out when Little Man was sporting a diaper rash and this didn’t help in getting rid of it. Once his rash was under control, however, this … Continue reading

Product Review: Piggy Paint

Finally, a non-toxic nail polish that is safe for kids (and adults alike). Piggy Paint is a nail polish that is non-toxic, water-based formula that is hypoallergenic and has a durable finish. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone. It comes in a variety of colours and dries quickly. The Mom who created this product makes three great suggestions on her website for how nail polish can actually be educational. It can allow for fine motor practice if you are willing to let your child paint their own nails (or yours if you’re super … Continue reading

Movie Review: Fly Me to the Moon

I had the opportunity to review the children’s movie: Fly Me to the Moon. I have to say that the animation technology in this movie was extremely impressive and quite “real”! The funny thing is that I didn’t even watch it in 3D as my eyes don’t allow me to see in 3D (you know those crazy pictures where an image should pop out at your after starring for a few minutes, yeah, can’t see them!). The movie is about some “tween” flies that stow away on Apollo 11. The movie tracks the flies’ adventures on the spaceship as well … Continue reading

Product Review and Poll: Canada Dry Green Tea Gingerale

My Canada Dry Green Tea Gingerale arrived for sampling just in time for me to try it with my daughter while we were testing out the Christmas cookies that we had just baked together. We were in need of a drink to accompany our cookies and the Canada Dry Green Tea Gingerale was a welcomed option! Here is my tea break with my daughter: I’ve tried to hook myself onto Green Tea as a healthier hot beverage alternative to my much needed coffee in the morning and truth be told, I just haven’t been successful. I find Green Tea to … Continue reading

Movie Review: Beethoven’s Big Break DVD

Scheduled to come out on DVD on December 26th, 2008 is the fun children’s movie: Beethoven’s Big Break. I had the opportunity to watch the movie prior to its release date. Although it’s a busy and crazy time of year, I somehow managed to watch this movie, in sections I will add, while I fed son. Movie SynopsisAlthough animal handler Eddie works with lots of creatures, he has a strict NO PETS ALLOWED policy and won’t let his son Billy keep adorable stray dog Beethoven and his family of puppies. But when dog-nappers steal the canine star of the movie … Continue reading

Product Review: Cover Plug

With the recent birth of my son, I’m finding myself becoming quickly reminded how we have become much more relaxed about the use of child safety products (in some areas) in our house. An example is that we leave the baby gate open most of the time now, except at night time. One thing that I never did give up on are the electrical plug outlets. The majority of outlets that are in sight are covered. We have tried a few different kinds and I have never been fully happy with any of them. Most of them are difficult to … Continue reading
