We are pleased to share another company which offers NATURAL Organic products for children.

This company developed their products specifically for children with skin irritants. Thus, they avoid using any ingredient in their product line that might irritate skin!
We were able to review five of their products. The products came well packaged and they are nice large sizes so you get quite a bit of product for your expenditure in natural products, which is delightful!

This was such a great bubble bath! My children really enjoyed being able to use a bubble bath again! The traditional bubble baths i buy in the store ALL irritate their skin and we have just forgone the pleasure of a sudsy bath time…but now I am pleased to say my children can bask in a sudsy bath once again with this product! …and boy are they delighting in bath time now that there are bubbles!

detangler

 

 

 

 

This Conditioner uses organic & natural ingredients to provide an incredibly soft and manageable finish for your babies’ hair. Using ingredients such as Organic Aloe.

 

 

We LOVE that this product is a leave in or shampoo out product. My daughters’ hair is so easily tangled and this product is AWESOME at relieving those tangles and making brushing a breeze. We have used the product both as a leave in and have shampooed it out…either way it worked wonderfully! I can say that for hair that is severely tangled this worked well as a leave in conditioner to help alleviate the knots! My youngest is so pleased that the brushing routine in our house has gotten much easier with this product. No more crying when time to detangle!

Overall, Nature’s Baby Organics is doing a wonderful job at providing consumers with products that are Natural, organic and family friendly! We really enjoyed the product and hope you will take a moment to peruse their website and find your favorite products!

How to Choose a Baby Stroller

This is a partnered post.

It’s hard to believe I am out of the stroller stage in my parenting journey. I am actually looking to sell our remaining strollers. As I end this chapter in our life I thought it would be fun to do a post about how to choose a baby stroller.

How to Choose a Baby Stroller

1. Determine your budget. Strollers can run anywhere from $10 for an umbrella stroller and upwards of thousands for top of the line strollers.

2. Durability. Durability is pretty important to us because I knew our stroller would have to hold up to numerous children.

3. Safety. Any baby product needs to be safe and free from defects.

4. Features. What features do you want your stroller to have? Cup holders, bottom basket, tall handle if you are taller, snack tray, umbrella for shade, etc.?

5. Function. Do you need a jogging stroller, a double stroller, single or single with a step for another child?

6. Storage. Is it easy to store? Do you need it to fold up easily when you are one handed? Is weight important?

Jané strollers is a new brand to me on the medium to higher end price wise – $250-$790. “The first Jané stroller was born in 1932 in Barcelona, Spain when Manuel Jané Vidal proudly created a stroller for his new born son, Ramon.” They have four different styles: Nanuq, Rider, Trider Extreme and a new PowerTwin Pro coming soon. Safety is an important issue to Jané and their products are created with babies health and safety in mind.

You can learn more about Jané here: http://www.jane-usa.com

Baby Mum-Mum

FFR image for posts

My kids are snack machines. I let them each have two snacks a day. One after their naps in the afternoon, and one at night while we are reading books before bed. I am always looking for a healthy snack to feed them. Trying to find a healthy and delicious tasting snack for kids is not always easy. Fruit is always a good option, but not always convenient when we are on the go. Baby Mum-Mum has come to the rescue!

Baby Mum-Mum offers a variety of snacks for babies, toddlers, and children. I absolutely love that all of their snacks are all-natural, gluten free, allergen free, contain no preservatives, and have no artificial colors or flavors. The best part is Baby Mum-Mums are individually wrapped so they are super easy to throw in my purse or diaper bag when I’m on the go. They are sold in three different stages.

MumMums1

Baby Mum-Mums are rice rusks for babies, and can be their first solid food. They come in flavors original, vegetable, banana, organic original, and apple. Toddler Mum-Mums are for toddlers 18 months and older and come in flavors organic strawberry, apple, and banana.  Mum-Mum Snax are for children 4-12 years old and come in flavors white cheddar, apple cinnamon, and strawberry banana.

MumMums2

I let my one year old try the Baby Mum-Mums and her favorite was the vegetable flavor. This is great since she’s not the biggest fan of regular vegetables; I have to hide them in her applesauce. Each package contained two rusks. I gave her one rusk, she took a bite and LOVED it. They are perfect for her since they dissolve in her mouth. I’ve never seen her eat a snack so fast!  Now I throw them in my purse when I go shopping and it’s very easy for her to feed herself while sitting in the shopping cart. They are perfect size for her hands and the best part is they don’t make a mess.

MumMums3

I wish I had found Baby Mum-Mums sooner for my kids. They are a great snack, very convenient, healthy, and easy on the wallet. They can be found at many major stores including Target and Walgreens. I will be recommending them to all of my friends with babies.  Baby Mum-Mums are a great product!  To learn more about Baby Mum-Mums, visit their website at

MommysClub All In Bundle Review

FFR image for posts

As I mentioned last week in our MommysClub giveaway post, we have been reviewing the MommysClub All In Bundle.

Products in the MommysClub All In Bundle

None of the products smell chemically. They barely have any scent. I love that they are organic and or all natural, toxic-free and hypoallergenic.

MommysClub All In Bundle

Total Body Health with Multivitamin
– To be honest this is weird tasting but I’m not one to shy away from weird tasting health products. Now bad tasting products, I usually won’t buy again. Weird I can get use to. I think only my oldest and I have been taking it.


Total Body Health for Children with Multivitamin
– Only our youngest son likes to drink this. The rest not so much. I’d describe it as liquifying crushed up multivitamins. This would be great for those who cannot swallow pill form vitamins.

Children’s Multivitamin – All the children loved these chewable multivitamins!

Pre-Natal Plus – This is the same as the other liquid vitamins above but for expectant or nursing mamas. I did taste it. The flavor kind of reminded me of another health drink we’ve taken.

Daily Cleansing Foam – I’ve barely used this but it is a no-rinse hand washing solution that hypoallergenic with moisturizer for post-diaper clean up, cuts and burns. This would be nice to keep in the car.

Baby Shampoo – I haven’t even had a chance to fully review this product. I kind of forgot about it amidst all the other products. It smells great though!

Rash & Remedy Skin Relief – Haven’t had any use for this yet. Though Jr. does seem to have some spots I could try it on now that I think about it. It is for rashes and common skin problems.

Perfect Touch Sanitizer – Since we’ve been sick, I’ve been using this sanitizer on taps, door knobs etc. Yep, sick for the first time in two years and we’ve been double slammed in the last month. :(

I cannot honestly say how any of these products work long term because we have only been using them a short time. I can just give you our general thoughts about our initial usage.

Twigtale

FFR image for posts

Do your kids enjoy looking at photos of themselves? My kids absolutely love looking through photo albums of themselves and talking about what they were doing and who is in the picture with them.  What if you could design a book completely centered around photos of your children and written for your child? Twigtale has made this possible, and it’s very easy to do!

Twigtale1

Twigtale makes personalized children’s books focused on early transitions such as moving, parents going on a vacation, or gaining a new sibling. They also make “anytime” books that build self-esteem and promote child development.  Your first step is to go to www.twigtale.com and choose which book you would like to create. I chose “Who Loves Me?” It’s a book all about the many people who love my daughter.  Once you choose the book you want you can begin building the book or see a list of photos you will need to complete the book.

Twigtale2

I found that viewing the image list helped me to gather all of the photos needed before I started the book. I saved them all in a folder to my desktop so they were easy to access.  You can either upload all of the images you have right away or add images as you go. Since I had already picked out my images I created a new gallery and uploaded them all at once.  It was really easy to just drag them from my desktop into the program for uploading.  Next you answer a few questions such as who the book is for, who is creating the book, and the gender of the child.  The book then populates with all of this information and you’re ready to start writing the book.

You begin with the cover page and go page by page until the end. Simply drag a photo to the desired page, edit it if needed, and insert text. Most of the story is there, you just need to insert people’s names.  Honestly it took me about 20 minutes to make the whole book. It was so fast and easy.  When you get to the end of the book, you’re able to preview it and check for errors you may have made. That’s it! Input your personal information and billing information and the book will be mailed to you shortly. I received my book in three days, it was very fast!

Twigtale3

The finished product was of very high quality. The colors are bright, the quality of the images were great, and the pages were nice and thick.  All of the books are only $20 each, and would make great gifts.  I plan on giving my daughter hers for her 1st birthday.  The site was very easy to navigate, and creating the book was very user friendly.  I even made a few mistakes and had to delete photos and upload new ones. I was very pleased with how fast the process was. Overall, I would definitely recommend Twigtale personalized books.  A high quality, personalized book, for a very affordable price!

BabyGanics

FFR image for posts

Keeping my kids clean is always one of my top priorities as a mom.  Making sure my son washes his hands after using the bathroom, before eating, and after playing outside is important to me. Sometimes we are not always at home and finding a bathroom to wash up is not always easy.  In the summertime we like to go to the playground and have picnics. I try to always bring hand sanitizer along so we can be clean before we eat. Have you ever looked at the label of hand sanitizer, and noticed how much alcohol is in them? Most alcohol-based hand sanitizers contain at least 62% alcohol; that’s insane!

photo 1

BabyGanics is different.  Their alcohol free, hypoallergenic formula kills 99.9% of germs.  The problem for me, with most hand sanitizers, is that they dry my hands out so much that I need to apply lotion immediately after.  I most definitely did not need to do this with BabyGanics Foaming Hand Sanitizer.  They have a unique moisturizing formula.

photo 2

The pump style bottle is very convenient and simple to use. My 4 year old can easily pump a small amount of foam onto his hand and rub until it’s all gone. He loves that it’s a foam.

photo 3

Making a somewhat boring task such as cleaning hands, fun for kids makes a world of difference as a mom.  The BabyGanics Foaming Hand Sanitizer is available in Fragrance Free and Tangerine. I tried the Tangerine, and it was such a light scent I barely noticed it. The smell was fresh, but not overbearing.

BabyGanics offers an array of products from Personal Care items to Household Cleaners.  Their mission is to create products to create a safe, healthy, and happy environment for babies and parents. Their products are available in store and online at numerous places. To learn more about BabyGanics and all they have to offer, visit their website at:

My-Baby-Book App

FFR Featured Post

My-Baby-Book app is a cute little app to record all the necessary information from your pregnancy test, pregnancy through to your baby’s first 18 months of life. I think it would be a great tool since so often I would write down milestones on sticky notes to add to our baby book….once I got around to it. Then I would end up losing them or misplacing them. Whereas with the app I always have my phone on me and it would be easy to grab it and make the necessary notes in the My-Baby-Book app for milestones baby reached as they happened. Very handy and convenient. Busy moms, techie moms and moms trying to go digital will appreciate what this app has to offer by way of storing important dates, times, milestones etc.

The home page needs to be swiped to start the app and takes you to the cover of the My-Baby-Book app, which allows you to edit and personalize it with your baby’s name:

My Baby App_1

My Baby App_7

The next page is the table of contents. The main menu is a bear with building blocks…cutest menu I’ve seen yet! The main menu is located in the top left corner when not in use.

My Baby App_2

Here’s what Kim, mom of two, had to say about My-Baby-Book app:

What a useful app! I love that you can store all of your baby’s growth information on your phone or tablet so when you’re at the doctor it’s on hand and easy to update. My favorite is the baby’s firsts section. I’m always writing down on post-it’s when my daughter does something for the first time. The post-it notes have been piling up since I haven’t had time to dig out her baby book to write them in. Great features and super user friendly!

More of the Table of Contents:

My Baby App_3

There’s even a page for details about Mommy and Daddy:

My Baby App_4

A page for pregnancy notes:

My Baby App_5

Growth charts:

My Baby App_ 5

There are even pages for baby’s firsts and birthday details:

My Baby App_7

Overall, we think this app is very useful!! It can be found on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id780610409

Chicco NaturalFit

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Chicco. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.”

Chicco is a brand name that I have come to trust and love. They sell a multitude of products designed with babies and parents in mind.  Their new line of bottles and pacifiers, Chicco NaturalFit, go above and beyond to keep babies happy.  Their advanced feeding and soothing system grow with your baby as your babies feeding style is constantly changing.

Chicco1

Their NaturalFit bottles come in three distinct nipple shapes. The first stage is Squeezing and the nipples are designed for newborns.  The nipple is actually angled so it is easier for a newborn to drink. Because of the way it’s positioned the nipple will always be full with milk so it is almost impossible for baby to swallow air. This is super important since babies swallowing air can lead to an upset tummy, which means the baby may be cranky.  I noticed the nipple is also very soft and flexible, similar to a breast. This makes it easier for moms who decide to breast and bottle feed. These nipples come in two flow categories, newborn and medium.

Chicco2

The second stage is Transition and the nipples are designed for babies around four months old.  The nipples are more upright since babies have better neck control. My favorite feature about this nipple is it has three different flow positions. One nipple can adjust to three different flows; slow, medium, and fast. This was amazing to me! When I have purchased bottles in the past I would have to be constantly buying new nipples to go with how my baby was eating. Sometimes I would even have one faster flowing nipple for lunchtime when she was super hungry, and then another slower nipple for bedtime when she was relaxing and just enjoying her nighttime bottle. Trying to keep track of all of the nipple flows was a pain in the butt! This nipple you simply place in the baby’s bouth with the flow number you want closest to baby’s chin. That’s it! It is way less nipples to keep track of, and very easy to use.

The third stage is Sucking and the nipples are designed for babies around six months old.  The tip is more elongated to encourage swallowing and to help with the muscle development. This nipple is available in fast flow and a Y-cut flow for introducting thicker liquids.  For my daughter, she is 9 months old, we used the fast flow. It seemed a little faster than what she’s been using, but she didn’t seem to mind.  She finished faster and had an easy time holding onto the bottle. She thinks she’s a big shot and likes to hold her own bottle on my lap.

Their NaturalFit orthodontic pacifiers are also great products. They are BPA free and Latex free. Their designed with soft silicone and they have tiny ridges and grooves at an angled shape. They come in a variety of colors and sizes based on how old your baby is.

Chicco3

Overall I was really impressed with Chicco NaturalFit. Their design and genius adjustable flow nipple are something I would highly recommend to my mommy friends.  These products are now available in store and online at buybuy BABY.  For more information on Chicco NaturalFit check out their website:

Pampers Celebrating Firsts & Giveaway

Pampers logo

“This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.”

As a stay at home mom I have been absolutely blessed to witness all of my babies’ “firsts” first hand.  These moments I will never be able to get back and I cherish & hold them close to my heart.  I will never forget the first time she smiled at me or her first word, “MaMa.”  From the moment I laid eyes on her in the hospital, I knew I was the luckiest mom ever.  Pampers has been there every step of the way with me.

Pampers1

Pampers Celebrating Firsts

As a newborn, through her infancy, and now into her “walking” stage, I have always used Pampers diapers.  My favorite feature is the color-changing wetness indicator, which lets me know in an instant when my baby needs a diaper change.  The elasticity around the legs keeps leaks in, all while still being very comfortable for my daughter to crawl, sit, stand, and attempt to walk.  Pampers Swaddlers are Pampers softest diapers ever from newborn all the way through size 5.  Imagine a pillow for your babies’ butt!  As Annabelle takes on her next challenge, her “first steps,” Pampers will be there keeping her dry and comfortable.  Here is Annabelle taking her first steps with her push toy.  I couldn’t be more proud!
