Booster Seat Buckle Holder

Now your child can buckle themselves with ease. No more floppy buckles. no more digging.

The LulaBloc is one of the most useful booster seat travel accessories you can find! They fit over the rear seat buckles with ease and keep the buckle right next to the booster seat where it belongs. Don;t dig between the seats or undereath the booster anymore! Get the LulBloc and get moving!

We are in love with LulaBloc! This makes a caregivers job so much easier! We love that children can now buckle themselves with ease!

You will notice in the picture above that the LulaBloc simply slips over the buckle providing easy access and stability to the buckle. We liked the ease of installation and ease of use! This is the best product ever!

LulaClip Review

LulaClip Magnetic car seat clips

THEY GO WITH YOU ~ Lulaclip car seat clips attach to any car seat or stroller. Their placement can be adjusted so they grow with your child.

 

LulaClips are one of the most unique car seat travel accessories on the market. These patent pending magnetic clips attach to any car seat or stroller. They allow the straps/ buckles of the car seat or stroller to be clipped out of the way. This makes unloading or loading a child as easy as it can be.

We found Lulaclip very easy to use and was nice to not have to search for the car seat clips. They really work as an extra set of hands.

Here is a closer look at the clips back and front sides. You will note that installation is simply pinning them to the car seat fabric.

This product is wonderful for new moms and seasoned moms! We cannot get over this product!

Baby Mantra

IMG_2632

“I participated in Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Baby Mantra. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.” www.momcentralconsulting.com

My children’s skin is very important to me. I always try my best to use the most gentlest of products on their delicate bodies.  Finding all natural products are always a challenge.  When I heard of Baby Mantra products I couldn’t wait to try them.  Their all natural, cruelty-free, and gluten-free products are all made in the U.S.

IMG_2631

I have two children, an 18 month old daughter and an almost 5 year old son.  Both of them have very sensitive skin so I have to be careful with what I use.  Each night they both get a bath individually.  Typically I add soap to my daughter’s bath and use that to wash her.  For my son, I put soap on a washcloth and wash him at the end of his bath.  Then I thoroughly rinse him so he doesn’t get a rash. Immediately after I dry each of them, and then give them a massage with soothing lotion. Baby Mantra’s products fit very well into my routine.

I absolutely loved using the 3-in-1 Bubble Bath + Shampoo + Wash. A little goes a long way. I put in a few drops for my daughter’s bath and it created lots of bubbles; she loved it!  The smell was very calming and relaxing, not overbearing at all.  The soap made her skin feel very soft.  For my son, it worked better when I just put it on a washcloth and washed him. I tried adding the wash to his bathwater since sometimes he likes bubbles. Unfortunately he broke out in a rash the next day.  As long as I rinsed him after washing, there was no problem.  The 3-in-1 Bubble Bath + Shampoo + Wash is made with natural ingredients including Aloe Vera and Lavender.

IMG_2632

 

Baby Mantra’s Calming Lotion was my favorite. Massaging my children’s skin with it after baths was a very relaxing time.  The lotion was very creamy and the smell was wonderful. A little went a long way with the convenient pump feature.  It made my children’s skin feel nice and soft. Even the next morning their skin was still soft.  Baby Mantra’s Calming Lotion is made with natural ingredients including Shea Butter, Lavender Oil, Olive Oil, and Sage Oil.

Baby Mantra offers a variety of skin care products for babies, kids, and adults. Some of their other products include Calming Massage Oil, Newborn Shampoo & Body Wash, and Detangling Conditioner.  All of their products contain natural ingredients such as Avocado, Sunflower Seed, Mango Butter, and Wheat Germ.

Baby Mantra products are available at the following stores:

Walgreens & Duane Reade stores http://www.walgreens.com/

Amazon http://www.amazon.com/

BabiesRUs.com http://www.babiesrus.com/

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!

We liked that this product did what it said…without irritation and NO greasy feel! We also LOVE the fact that it is usable on the face. I have found that some products irritate or dry out the face if applied…NOT this one!!! It is AWESOME for sensitive and delicate skin!

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!
