Product Review – Wrapy Baby Wrap

A few weeks ago, I was asked to check out the Wrapy Baby Wrap. The Wrapy is a cloth wrap, made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex. It will safely hold babies up to 35 lbs. The fabric is extra wide and is very comfortable. It is machine washable and dryer safe. I tried a sling wrap when my daughter was little, but didn’t like it very much. In the last few years I have seen many different brands of wraps come out, but since my daughter is too old for them I’ve never been able to try them out. So when … [Read more...]

Product Review — Beltlock

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. A while back, I was sent a Beltlock to try out.  The Beltrock is designed to keep kids from undoing their seatbelt when riding in the car.  It fits over the locking part of the seatbelt to protect the release button.  The slots allow for the belt part (I know that there is some technical name to it but I don’t know it) to go into the lock, but little fingers won’t fit.  To release, simply use a key or other long/slim object to press … [Read more...]

Daddy Diaper Backpack Review & Giveaway [ENDED]

A few weeks back, I was sent a Daddy Diaper Backpack. The pack is made by DaddyScrubs, a company that makes all sorts of neat stuff geared towards dads, including scrubs, hats, shirts & more.I was very excited to try this since my husband absolutely hates carrying around our daughter Winnie the Pooh diaper bag. He’s more open to carrying my purse.  The backpack has several large compartments, as well as a ton of smaller ones that you can fit just about everything in, including keys, phones, … [Read more...]

BabyBond Review and Giveaway [ENDED]

A few weeks ago, I was asked to try out the BabyBond Nursing Cover.  BabyBond covers the mother, leaving the baby free to move and look around.  The covers are designed to look like a sash.  They also roll up and easily fit inside any purse.  There are three different types: Original, Flex, and Couture. I ended up testing the Couture.  The Couture cover can be worn either as a sash or a belly band.  I was expecting to have to run through a long or weird process to put it on.  But, all you do … [Read more...]

The Juppy Baby Walker Giveaway [ENDED]

The Juppy is a parent-assisted baby walker used to safely teach babies how to walk sooner while eliminating dangerous falls.  A lot of parents tend to hold their babies by the hands or under the arms to teach them to walk. I know from personal experience that it can cause your back to hurt, but what I didn't know is that it can also cause injury to your child's arms and/or joints. With the Juppy, you place you child in the Juppy and, while standing upright, you hold on to the cotton straps … [Read more...]

Product Review – Fisher-Price Precious Planet Crib-to-Floor Mirror

I'd been looking for any sort of mirror or activity station to attach to Hannah's crib...so she would stop trying to chew her way out.  I didn't want anything overly huge or bulky, but wasn't too sure what to get.  Eventually, I ran across this at Wal-Mart.  Hannah immediately saw it and was all but lunging out of the shopping cart trying to get it off the shelf.  I figured it was worth a try since Hannah seemed to be really taken with it. Attaching it to the side of the crib is easy.  It … [Read more...]

Product Review: Bumbo Seat

My mother-in-law, Sandy, made a big fuss about these and said I needed to buy one.  I told her I wasn't about to spend $40 on one when Hannah could already sit up at 2 1/2 months.  She ended up buying two at a yard sale and brought them over. Hannah has used the lilac one several times and once with the tray.  She sits at such an odd angel in it that it makes her uncomfortable.  She won't sit still in it and will quickly climb out of it.  Her legs also get wedged in the leg holes at times as … [Read more...]

Product Review: VentAire 6oz. Bottles

My mother-in-law picked up two of these for me.  The VentAire bottles are supposed to keep your baby from having gas, colic, and spit-up issues by venting out the air while he/she drinks. To achieve this, they have an angled bottle and a two piece bottom with air holes and seal. I've always heard good reviews about these bottles so I was eager to use them. However, they had some problems. First of all, they leak...a lot, and for no apparent reason. At first I though I either forgot the seal … [Read more...]

Product Review: Mylicon

Mylicon Gas Relief is a total life saver!!  Hannah has a lot of problems with gas due to her formula, and since I started her on mylicon it's been a lot better.  It's a little pricy, but it's worth it. Pros: --  use at every feeding --  can be mixed with formula or given with dropper --  $2 off coupon in every box Cons: --  costs almost $7 at Wal-Mart … [Read more...]
