Healthtex: Asymmetrical Knit Romper

My daughter Kinsley has recently grown a love for rompers, and I can’t say that I mind much. Rompers are so convenient and easy to use since they’re all in one! Of course it was no surprise to us that Healthtex, one of our favorite brands, offered a ton of different adorable rompers for Kinsley to wear this summer. We ordered the Asymmetrical Knit Romper in “Red Rover” and were more than impressed with what we received. The romper is made of 60% cotton and 40% polyester which makes it perfectly comfortable for the summer heat. I love the fact that it is sleeveless, and the ruffled trim along neck gives it just the right amount of sassiness. Healthtex tends to run true to size, so the 3t romper fit my daughter perfectly. The elastic waistline hugs her waist which allows the romper to stay comfortably without riding up or slouching down. Once again, Healthtex has allowed me to keep Kinsley stylish and comfortable without breaking the bank. This Asymmetrical Knit Romper can be purchased for UNDER $5!

Healthtex Clothing is available exclusively at Walmart.

Top Teething Toys from Nuby

Teething is arguably one of the worst phases of parenthood. A cranky miserable child equals a cranky miserable family. I know when my daughter was going through her teething phase, she was in horrible pain. I tried everything on the market to ease her pain, but nothing seemed to help. That is why Nuby has released such an extensive line of teething toys that are guaranteed to soothe your baby’s aching gums. Their line is so large, that there is sure to be something for every child. Some of my favorite Nuby teething toys are the Vibe N’ Teethe Wristband, the Teethe & Play Barbell, and the Teethin’ Pals toy. Of course it was hard to narrow it down to just three!PicMonkey Collage.jpgTeethe & Play Barbell- The Teethe & Play Teether is a barbell shaped teething toy for children 3 months and up. The barbell encourages sensory development (hear, see, and feel) while also taking care of baby’s teething needs. On one side of the toy there are flower petal shaped crinkle toys that make a cute little noise when touched. The other side features pûrICE™ Gel pieces which are textured and can be chilled for teething relief.  The pûrICE™ Gel stays colder for longer than basic water filled teethers! My little toy tester, Reese, couldn’t wait to get his hands on this teether. He loved the bright colors and giggled every time he touched the crinkle toy. I didn’t even have time to chill the pûrICE™ Gel, because he simply wouldn’t put it down! This teething toy is currently available at Walmart and other select retailers. 

Vibe n’ Teethe Wristband-  The Vibe N’ Teethe Wristband is a touch activated vibrating wristband for children 3 months and up. The wristband itself is made of soft silicone and stays securely on the wrist without the need to hold it. The textured silicone at the top gently vibrates when it is touched which massages baby’s gums and provides instant relief. I tested this out on my adorable baby model, Lily, and it was such a hit. The wristband stayed securely in place, and she immediately started gnawing down! I felt the silicone top with my fingers and loved that the vibration wasn’t overpowering. It was very light, and seemed to beat in a continuous pattern. This teething toy is currently available at Walmart and other select retailers. 

Teethin’ Pals Teether- The Teethin’ Pals Teether is a basic animal shaped teething toy for children aged 3 months and up. This toy has multiple different teething surfaces and the middle opening makes it perfect for tiny hands to grasp. Again, Reese couldn’t wait to get his hands on this toy! The little monkey was adorable, and he loved the bright colors. He was extremely interested in the different textures, and simply refused to put it down! This teething toy is currently available at Meijer and other select retailers. 

Be sure to check out Nuby’s other teething toys!

Little Tikes Beats Play Center

We always have company over, which means there are always children running and crawling around my home. Since my daughter is older now, I don’t have a ton of baby toys lying around my house. I needed something to keep all of the small children occupied during visits. The Little Tikes Beats Play Center was impossible for me to pass up. This center was colorful and eye catching, which I knew would be perfect for the babies! When I got my Little Tikes Beats Play Center in, I couldn’t wait to rip it open. There was very little setup required. All I had to do was blow up each of the four sides, insert some batteries, toss in the included 15 3D blocks, and it was ready to go. I noticed right away that the blow up pieces were fairly thick and covered by a cloth material. I was really excited about that because it will be extremely hard, if not impossible, for the kids to pop it! Since the Little Tikes Beats Play Center is very lightweight, I can pick it up and carry it to wherever I want the kids to play.

IMG_7268.JPG

Much to my surprise, the Little Tikes Beats Play Center is large enough for multiple children to sit inside. I easily fit a three year old and a one year old with plenty of room left over. When Kinsley and Rease spotted the Little Tikes Beats Play, they immediately jumped inside. Once inside, the kids started playing with the attached piano. The piano has three modes which include Do Re Me, Music, and Classic Piano. The piano easily responded to touch and the baby didn’t need to touch it “exactly right” for it to make a sound. No matter how he hit it, a sound was made. While Rease played on the piano, Kinsley started to build with the geometric blocks. Each block is shaped differently, so Kinsley was able to create a ton of different things. I loved how the blocks were soft so the kids wouldn’t get hurt if they fell on one or threw it at another child. I also loved how the raised sides kept all of the toys inside of the center, versus them sliding out away from reach. This Little Tikes Beats Play Center is by far one of the best Little Tikes toddler toys we have ever tried. It has been such a hit with the kids, both young and old, and it seems like it will last us quite some time!

Cocoon Cam: The First Ever No-Touch Baby Breathing Monitor

Being a new parent can be scary. Heck, being a parent PERIOD can be scary. All of the uncertainties and constant worrying. A parent can go days without sleeping simply because they are constantly checking on their new bundle of joy in the other room.  The Cocoon Cam is the first ever no-touch baby breathing monitor that helps parents put their mind at ease while their child sleeps. By using advanced computer vision to detect the baby’s chest movements, Cocoon Cam will alert you when app senses anything out of the ordinary! Cocoon Cam comes with one Wifi-enabled HD wireless Video Camera (720p) with Night Vision and Two-Way Audio, an AC power cord, an ethernet cable,  and one mounting kit. It also comes with a mobile app (iPhone, iPad, or Android), a FREE 6-month subscription to Cocoon Cam Insights and FREE cocoon alerts.20170612_203916

To work properly, the Cocoon Cam camera must be installed above your baby’s crib with all four corners of the crib within view. That means we couldn’t place the camera on a shelf or on top of furniture. We were able to properly install the camera in under 5 minutes. Once the camera was installed correctly,  the Cocoon Cam app prompted us to create a new account which linked our camera to our app. We placed Lily into her crib, and immediately got a live video feed sent to our phone. I was able to view the live feed, analysis graphs, and all of the Cocoon Cam’s awesome features. The moving graph at the bottom of the live video feed constantly monitored Lily’s chest movements regardless of if she was covered by a blanket or not. By clicking the app once on the screen, I was able to revert back to full-screen video mode and the graph was hidden. I really loved how the camera camera automatically switched to Night Vision mode once we turned the lights off in Lily’s room. Since multiple people can download the app, I figured the babysitter and her grandparents would get use out of it as well and made sure everyone had access to the account. The streaming video is encrypted, which means no one besides my family can see our streams, which makes me feel even safer about using this camera. PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Once we left the room, we started getting alerts sent to our phones. The first one was a “Low Movement Detected” alert  and then later in the night we received a “High Movement Alert”. Both alerts came straight to my phone and didn’t go away until I closed them myself. I loved knowing that I could rest easy while Cocoon Cam did all of the work for me! PicMonkey Collage.jpgCocoon Cam’s subscription fee (optional after the initial 6-month period) is required to view graphs and insights regarding chest movements and breathing graphs. In the future other measurements such as temperature and humidity will also be available on the app. The subscription is $12.99 per month after the initial 6-month free subscription, however it is NOT required that you subscribe. If you chose not to subscribe you will still have access to the live HD video and two-way audio, however all graphs and other functions will be unaccessible. This cutting edge technology is something I wouldn’t want to miss out on, so I will be continuing my subscription once the 6 month trial is over. I just can’t pass up such amazing features!

Puretech Kitten Night Light

This adorable kitten night light from Puretech was exactly what my daughter needed! Not only is it super cute, but this night light is extremely child friendly. To use, all I had to do was let it charge fully (1-2 hours) and it was ready to go.  Once fully charged, this night light is designed to last 12-18 hours which makes it perfect for naptime or bedtime! The coolest thing about this night light is definitely the fact that it is portable. My daughter can carry it around the house with her and use it in every room. This means if she needs to wake up and use the potty, the Puretech Kitten Night Light can help her see where she is going! The Puretech Kitten Night Light has two modes which are white light, and flashing colors. My daughter can easily control the modes by simply touching the night light. No fancy switches or controls needed. In my opinion, the brightness of both modes are perfect for bedtime. They are bright enough for a child to not be scared, but dim enough so the child is able to quickly fall asleep. This is by far one of the cutest little night lights we have ever used.

Order this night light today!PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Kudo Banz: Reinforce Good Behavior

My daughter just turned three, so I hoped the terrible twos were behind us. That is when I was told of the dreaded “Threenager” years. A three year old who has the attitude of a teenager! Temper tantrums in the store, selective hearing, and so much more. You name it, we’ve experienced it. That is why I was more than willing to test out the new Kudo Banz! Kudo Banz are small bracelet-like bands that act as a sticker chart on-the-go! No matter where you are, you can immediately reinforce good behavior by sticking a Kudo charm onto your child’s Kudo band! I immediately requested a starter pack because I was willing to try anything to correct this bad behavior. In the starter pack I received a hardcover storybook, two bands, six Kudo charms, a carrying pouch, a FREE app download. This is everything I need for 1-2 children.

IMG_7285.JPG

The Kudo Banz system was extremely easy for the kids and I to understand. Do a good deed or do something nice, and receive a Kudo charm. Receive Kudo charms and earn prizes and rewards. Simple. To start, I had to download the Kudo app and set everything up. In the parent section I could add children and select prizes for the prize wheel. I decided to add “Bake Cookies”, “Paint Your Nails”, “Go For A Bike Ride”, “Family Movie Night” and “Get Ice Cream” as prizes since those are some of my daughter’s favorite things to do! Once I explained the app to my daughter, she was more than happy to start earning her charms. Once Kinsley has earned three charms, all I have to do is scan her charm and she can spin the rewards wheel! Since the app and bracelet can go with us anywhere, the prize wheel allows for immediate reinforcement! To make sure Kinsley doesn’t lose interest in her Kudo Band, she will move up a level in the  kids move up a level in the Kudo World every time she spins the reward wheel! Kudo Bandz are such an easy way to reinforce good behavior while at home or on-the-go! Unlike similar approaches such as sticker charts,  Kudo Banz can go anywhere we go! I can’t wait to see the long-term effects of this adorable little product!

Wee Blessing: Summer 2017

Last September we reviewed Wee Blessing and it was a huge hit. Kinsley and I were super excited to get another box this year filled with summer styles! Of course we had to fill out a “Style Profile” since Kinsley’s taste in clothing had changed, but everything only took me about five minutes. After filling out all of the needed info, a personal stylist got Kinsley outfits shipped out in less than a week! In this month’s box we received a Children’s Place Miss Daisy Sunshine Tank (retails for $14.97, Wee Blessing price $7.00), an Oshkosh Yellow Flutter Skirt (retails for $18.00, Wee Blessing price $9.00), a Petit Peony Navy Set Sail Designer dress (retails for $48.00, Wee Blessing price $24.00), an Oshkosh Pink Pleated Dress (retails for $46.00, Wee Blessing price $23.00), a Jumping Beans Teal What’s Bugging You Tee (retails for $14.00, Wee Blessing price $7.00) and a Jumping Beans Teal/Gray Tiered Twirl Skort (retails for $14.00, Wee Blessing price $7.00). That is a box retail value of 154.95 that I can have for $77! That is over 50% savings! There is nothing better than SAVING money on cute clothes, except the fact that someone else did all of the hard work for me! All I have to do is circle the ones I am keeping, then send back the ones I don’t like. Once again, Wee Blessing did not disappoint because I decided to keep them all! I can’t wait to see what we get in our next box!

Traveling with Diono

As much as we wish we could avoid it, traveling with toddlers is never much fun. It can sometimes be hectic, overwhelming, and messy…and let’s not forget the constant “Are We There Yet?” to top things off.  Diono wants to make traveling with our kids as easy and organized as possible, which is why they offer an extended line of accessories for on-the-go families. From babies to toddlers, Diono is sure to have everything your traveling family needs to make sure you enjoy your road trip.download

Stow N’ Go– The Stow N’ Go backseat organizer is the first step to a successful road trip! Whether you are heading out of town, or going down the road to grandma’s house the Stow N’ Go is extremely useful. Installing this product was extremely simple. The top straps fasten easily around any headrest and the bottom straps fasten around the base of the seat for a nice snug fit. There are seven full-sized pockets on the Stow N’ Go as well as two medium sized drink holders. I was easily able to fit a few movies, snacks, toys, and books to keep my daughter occupied. As I was driving, I was surprised to find that nothing fell out, even when the seat is leaned back!

Travel Pal– I have never seen anything like the Travel Pal before! The Travel Pal is a small organizer designed to keep books and toys within your child’s reach. There was no installation required, and I was able to simply pop it open and place items inside. Along with the large opening and several different pockets, there are two insulated drink holders which are perfect for holding extra juice! As a mom, I love that this Travel Pal is waterproof as my daughter can be a bit messy at times. This product was extremely easy to clean!

Dry Seat– Lets face it, although our toddlers may be potty trained…accidents happen. Especially when they are locked in a seat for a long period of time. The Dry Seat offers 100% waterproof protection so any accidents are easy to clean! No more taking your car seat apart to wipe down big messes! All I had to do was stick it in my daughter’s car seat, then pop it in the washer after any accidents. This device can also be used in high chairs, strollers, and most products with a 5 point harness. Not only is this device good for accidents, but it would also come in handy for wet swimsuits when leaving the beach!
