Rockabye: Plush Rockers

When my best friend found out she was pregnant, I was beyond ecstatic. I immediately started looking for the most unique baby shower gift I could find. I wanted something that baby Tatum could use for a long period of time, so naturally I started looking into purchasing a rocking horse.  When I stumbled upon Rockabye Plush Rockers, I knew I had found the perfect gift! These adorable rockers were exactly what I was looking for! The Rockabye company puts a new spin on the classic rocking horse by creating adorable plush rockers in various themes and colors. Since baby Tatum’s nursery is woodland themed, I knew Buckee Beaver was the perfect match! I also knew I couldn’t pass up the Owlita Violet Owl  for my niece! Once I figured out which designs to get, I had the option of personalizing the rockers by engraving names onto the side. Since Buckee Beaver was a baby shower gift, I decided to go ahead and get it personalized. For $20 extra I got his name engraved on the side, and for $10 more I was able to choose a paint color (blue, brown, pink, red, or purple).  How awesome that Rockabye went the extra mile to offer personalization!?!

I received both rockers fairly quickly, and was blown away by the fantastic quality! On Tatum’s Buckee rocker, his name was spelled perfectly and I loved the way the color made it pop! I immediately noticed that each rocker had 4 different shaped buttons on their heads which activated cute original songs (ABC, 1-10, Colors, and shapes). They also had a few hidden little squeakers placed inside of the ears! My daughter, who is three, absolutely HAD to test them out.  Much to my surprise, she fit! I am so excited that baby Tatum will be able to use this for quite a few years before he outgrows it! I was also surprised at how soft this rocker was! Unlike classic rocking horses, Rockabye rockers are made of plush. Not only does this add to their cuteness factor, but they seem much safer in my opinion. I know, without a doubt, that I picked an extremely memorable baby shower gift that my best friend will cherish for years to come! Rockabye plush rockers are definitely the way to go!

Custom Unicorn Birthday Outfit from Simply ICB

There is nothing cuter than first birthday photoshoots, which makes finding the perfect first birthday outfit THAT much harder. Simply Irresistible Children’s Boutique is your one-stop-shop for all of your cute birthday needs! Take this custom unicorn first birthday outfit for example. It is truly adorable and one at a time. Simply Irresistible Children’s Boutique can take any theme or idea and turn it into exactly what you had envisioned. This particular custom first birthday outfit had three parts which include a “one” unicorn shirt, a fluffy tutu bottom, and a custom unicorn horn headband. To start, the shirt ran fairly true to size. It wasn’t a cheap shirt brand, so the quality overall was amazing. The tutu was one of my favorite parts for obvious reason. You can see how much thought went into this tutu as each strand of tulle was carefully placed and the adorable bow in the front was neatly tied. The custom unicorn horn headband was definitely the star of the show. Although it may look heavy, this headband was extremely lightweight! The horn itself is extremely soft, and the accessories barely weighed anything at all. Looking at the headband you can see how much Simply ICB cared about the details. From the gold bead strands to the sparkled flowers, everything about this was magical! I couldn’t get over how sweet and adorable this set truly was. Simply Irresistible Children’s Boutique went above and beyond with this magical little number!

Kidloland App

After years of blogging I get approached by thousands of kid related apps for feature. However I am always extremely selective on which ones I accept. Kidloland was a no-brainer to me and there was no way I was going to turn it down! Kidloland offers 1000+ nursery rhymes, songs, stories, activities, and games for kids aged 1-5. Although this is just one app, there are thousands of options within the app that allows my daughter, Kinsley, to have tons of options. Some of the awesome categories include Nursery Rhymes, Reading Time, Games, and Activities. If Kinsley wants to read a book, there are hundreds of different books. If Kinsley wants to sing a song, there are hundreds of different songs. No matter what my daughter is looking for, Kidloland is sure to have it. This is literally the only app a child 1-5 will need on their device! The only issue I have with this app is that each game category takes up quite a bit of data. Thankfully I had quite a bit of space on my iPod for my daughter Kinsley to download all of the current options. Since the Kidoland App is updated so frequently, they have begun to offer a subscription service for as low as $4.99/ month. They also offer other plans which include $24.99/ 6 months $39.99/ year. With a subscription plan, my daughter has access to all content regardless of how frequently new games are added. I currently have a 6 month subscription to Kidloland, however I will without a doubt renew once our time is up!

Summer Cups from Tommee Tippee

Are you traveling a lot this summer? I am sure you are! This summer, we have been using some new (and some old) Tommee Tippee cups while traveling. Tommee Tippee has always been one of our favorite brands. We have been using this brand since bottle stages, and now are sticking with them into straw/tumbler stages. Tommee Tippee is always releasing new designs which are constantly improving, so there is always something new for my daughter to try! This summer, we are focusing on three Tommee Tippee cups that I think are more than perfect for traveling with your busy kids!

Insulated Straw Tumbler– This 9 ounce limited edition sippy cup has been a huge hit with my daughter this summer! Designed for children 12 months and up, the insulated straw tumbler is perfect for additive toddlers. The insulated core helps keep juice cold no matter how long we are on-the-go! The soft flip up straw makes it perfect for my daughter to open and close on her own, and also helps prevent spills which is always a plus. I also love how extremely easy it is to clean. There are no extra pieces, and everything rinses out fairly easily.

First Sips Soft Transition Cup– This was one of the first cups we used when my daughter was younger, and it is still one of my top recommended cups to date! This cup makes transition from bottle feeding to sippy cup drinking extremely easy! This cup comes with a soft silicone bottle nipple and an offset soft spout which allows for longer use. The easy-grip handles makes it perfect for children of all ages, and helps promote independent drinking.

Tuff Stuff Spout Tumbler– Another huge hit this summer is the Tuff Stuff Spout Tumbler. This tumbler is made of durable stainless steel and the insulated base keeps juice ice cold! This cup fits in most cup holders, which makes it perfect for on-the-go traveling. The thick spout makes it easy to drink from, and we haven’t had any issues with leaking. I also found that these cups can really withstand a beating. My daughter has dropped hers several times with no damage done!

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
