GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Review and Giveaway

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

Did you know that….

“According to a GoodNites® brand study, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting”

More than 40% of parents find it frustrating and feel that bedwetting can be “trained” out of a child.

Accidents happen – even for big kids once in a while. I dealt with a similar issue when I was a child. I used to sleep so tight and I never realized that I had an accident. My daughter has the same problem. It’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed by, it’s not her fault.

Well, thankfully GoodNites® developed a product called TRU-FIT*. They are undies with a plastic liner that you put a disposable insert in. The starter pack comes with 2 pair of machine washable underwear and 5 disposable inserts for boy or girls. GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are available at retailers nationwide.

“87% of Moms that tried the product said that TRU-FIT* will make their kids more confident.”

We received the girls with a purple pair and a purple striped pair of underwear. They are cute and fit my daughter well. They do give her more confidence and that make this Momma feel much better too.  I will admit the inserts are a bit long and are tough to get into the underwear. Once they are on your child, just make sure they are not all bunched up in the front or back. That can be uncomfortable for your child. We have found these are working well for us. I do make sure my daughter uses the bathroom before she goes to bed each night also.

Giving your child support is the main thing if they have an accident. They don’t even realize this is happening.  This is not something that can be “trained” out of them. The child is already probably feeling bad about themselves and need you, as the parent, to let them know that this is okay and you will get through it together.

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.

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!

Pampers2

From your baby’s first smile to their first step, Swaddlers can now be there for many more firsts to come! To celebrate Swaddlers sizes 4 & 5, Pampers has 30 days of incredible giveaways and a grand prize of FREE Swaddlers diapers & wipes for a year.

Bambo Nature

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

If you are looking for the best eco-friendly diaper that is also the safest for your baby, look no further.  Bambo Nature is the only company that is certified 100% free of dangerous chemicals and known allergens.  This means no chemicals were used during raw material sourcing or production and there are absolutely no chemicals or additives on the diaper itself.  Their diapers have one of the least environmental impacts, so they are very eco-friendly!  Bambo Nature diapers are clinically tested for skin irritation and allergy, which means your baby has a very slim chance of getting a rash while wearing them.  They are so open and transparent that they publish a complete list of their ingredients.  Nothing is hidden.

Bambo2

I was very impressed by the softness of Bambo Nature diapers, they reminded me of a feathery pillow.  They are very flexible, not stiff or itchy.  The diapers are also unbelievably thin, yet extremely absorbent.  My daughter always has a very full diaper in the morning and these diapers still kept her feeling comfortable.  No leakage or wetness on the outside, either.  The diapers are 100% breathable so they will release heat, humidity, and moisture.  My daughter received absolutely no irritation or rash while wearing these diapers.  She has had problems with some of the other big brand named diapers, so this was a big deal for me!

Bambo3

Another great feature of these diapers is the handy carrying handle on the top, how smart!

Bambo1

Bambo Nature has received many prestigious certifications, eco-labels, and awards including the Nordic Swan Eco-label and the FSC label.  They come in 10 different sizes to accommodate premature babies all the way through potty training.  So if you are looking for the safest, most absorbent, greenest, and reasonably priced disposable diaper for your baby, try Bambo Nature.  You will not be disappointed!

PINXAV – Pink-Salve

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive free products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

Would you ever think to use diaper rash ointment to treat acne, bug bites, excema, rashes, or poison ivy?  You would if you have ever tried PINXAV diaper rash ointment.  PINXAV, pronounced “pink salve,” contains Zinc Oxide, just like other diaper rash ointments, except it contains more of it.  PINXAV also includes aloe, lanolin, vitamin E, menthol, and other natural products.  PINXAV is primarily used as a diaper rash ointment.  It protects the skin, aids in preventing diaper rash, relieves chafed skin, and helps seal out wetness.  It should be applied with each diaper change, especially at bedtime and naptime.

PINXAV1

I personally tried PINXAV on a rash on my inner arm.  It’s a seasonal rash I get that I have never found a cream that provided complete relief.  I put a dab of the ointment on the rash and was pleasantly surprised that it is a pink ointment.  I love pink!  The ointment is quite thick, but it rubs in very easily.  Let me tell you, a little bit, and I mean a little bit, goes a very long way.  I put maybe a dime size amount and it covered almost my entire lower arm.  I used PINXAV on my rash morning and night for 5 days, and was blown away with the results.  After the first day, my inner arm no longer itched.  After 3 days the rash began to fade, and after 5 days the rash was almost nonexistent.  I still cannot believe it!  I started using PINXAV on my son’s cheeks.  He has sensitive skin and his cheeks get red blotches on them in the evening.  I put just a dab on his cheeks at night and it is starting to clear up.  I like how gentle the ointment is.  It also smells very nice.  I can defintely smell the menthol in it, but it is not too overpowering.  The ointment makes your skin feel extremely soft, even hours later.  It was definitely unexpected coming from a diaper rash ointment!

PINXAV2

PINXAV is an all around great product to always have on hand.  I cannot wait to try it on my new baby’s bottom; I am confident it will work miracles.  Not only can it be used for diaper rashes, but also for heat rashes, chafing, poison ivy, psoriasis, acne, jock itch, minor burns, and many other ailments.  PINXAV is for the entire family, which is why I would highly recommend it.  They are so confident in their product that they offer a money back guarantee.  Trust me, you won’t be dissatisfied.  This would make an excellent gift to a new mom or even a veteran mom who has never tried it.  PINXAV is available in either a 4oz tube or a 16oz jar and can be purchased at many Target and Wal-Mart stores, but it can also be ordered on their webiste:

Seventh Generation Wipes Review & Giveaway

Baby Boy Seventh Generation Wipes 2

Wipes are an must-have essential in a home with children, at least they are in our house. We not only use them for diaper changes, but for wiping faces, traveling and quick cleaning. Our youngest son has learned from our example and likes to get wipes to clean himself up and he will even clean with them. ;) This is what he’s doing with the Seventh Generation wipes. Can you tell he’s very excited about helping me with the new wipes?

Baby Boy Seventh Generation Wipes

4pckedit

We have been using Seventh Generation wipes over the past few weeks. They are thick, have just the right moisture and do not seem to dry out, unless of course you leave the flip-top lid open for a day. The ones we have came in packages of 64. The packages are plastic with a closeable lid. We like them and are very grateful for no allergic reaction from baby, like some generic brands we have tried. They are actually pretty comparable to other name brands, but better in terms of being hypo-allergenic, free of dyes, fragrances, parabens and having less harmful chemicals. They score well on EWG.org, which is the kind of personal care product our family wants to buy. They soft, just not as soft as I would have liked.

Here are some product details:

• Available Packaging:

Dollar General Premium Diapers

Every parent knows there’s one baby product they cannot live without and that’s diapers. Whether it’s cloth or disposable it is a necessity in a home with a baby or young child. We have been both cloth and disposable diaper users, but with our last child we used mostly disposable.

Recently we had the opportunity to try Dollar General Premium Diapers.
Dollar General Premium Diapers come in sizes from newborn all the way up to size 6. We received a package of Dollar General Baby Diapers Convenience Package- Size 4 – 20ct which retails for $4.50 each and $18.00 for a 4-unit case. There are other packages in different sizes available as well.

Dollar General Premium Diapers Review

The design of these diapers is cute and even includes the diaper size on the diaper, making it easier to tell sizes apart if you have multiple children in diapers. Dollar General Premium diapers are functional. We didn’t notice any leaking nor did we have any issues with Junior breaking out into a rash. The sizing seemed to be right on as Junior’s fit him perfectly.

We did not really have any negative issues with Dollar General Premium Diapers. They accomplished their purpose each day we used them. ;) Great value and price. I’d say they function the same as any brand name diaper, except they are cheaper.

Two thumbs up from us!
Feel free to connect with Dollar General on Twitter
and on Facebook.

New and Improved Huggies Diapers and Wipes

The diaper dilemma. There are so many diapers on the market, many of the off brands are made by the same manufacturer just under a brand name – don’t ask me which ones because I don’t know the answer! :) Then there are cloth diapers and the choices seem endless compared to what they were 15-20 years ago when all we had were saftey pins and a rectangle piece of cloth and maybe a velcro version if we sewed or could find someone else who had them.

We have tried many diapers over the years and until our last little guy were mostly cloth diapering parents, but my husband got into the grove of buying disposable diapers after his mom supplied us with a couple months worth of diapers after our youngest was born in 2010. Since then we have used Huggies. For some reason they did not leak as much on baby, nor did they get that gel gunk all over my son’s bottom. We just grew to love them. I also like the fact that Huggies offers an eco-friendly version, which I have tried a few times and like just as much if not more because they are eco-friendly. They are just a little pricer for what I want to pay for disposable diapers, after all we just throw them away, right? (wry smile)

The new and improved Huggies diapers, Snug and Dry, and wipes are just as good, if not better than the former versions. I find food does not get stuck on the outside of the diaper as much, nor do they “pill” with that fuzzyiness as much. We have only been using them a week, but we definitely like what we are seeing so far! Try them and see for yourself! ;)

My little guy motored around in his Little Tykes car, ran around the garden, sat on the ground and you could barely tell he had been outside, unless he got wet. Then you could tell!


See my poor drooping plants there in the foreground…so need to get them all into the ground!

The wipes seem to have a different scent, at least the ones I received. I usually buy the Aloe scented ones so they were just different to me in that way. Otherwise they work just the same!

Check out Huggies on Facebook to put these diapers through your own tests http://on.fb.me/HQCj1x or Twitter http://www.twitter.com/Huggies

5 Tips for Family Vacation Traveling

We have not taken a family vacation in a number of years. We’ve enjoyed staycations right here at home. However, I am really hoping to surprise my husband with a real vacation this year or next. The last time we took a vacation it was on the fly. Seriously. My mom and her best friend were here visiting. My mom is a huge country music fan and has always wanted to visit Nashville. Mom and her friend were here during my husband’s unemployment so while I was all gung-ho to take my mom to Nashville, my husband was not too sure we could swing it. I think I finally convinced him by telling him that we had our hotel points to use and we would eat if we were at home anyways, so it was just our gas money that would be an expense.

At that time I was house cleaning to earn extra income on top of getting my VA business off the ground and that Friday morning I had to clean a house. When I returned from cleaning my husband decided we were going to Nashville for the weekend! Oy! I was excited, but a bit unprepared to say the least. My husband, children, mom and “Aunt” had done most of the packing but there was food and other items to buy.

This is not the way I usually plan our family vacations. I have been known to make lists, print them off and hand them to children to gather things on the list so my husband or I could pack the items in bags or in the van.

Here are 5 tips for family vacation traveling or planning tips, if you will:

1. Make lists of what you will need in the areas of clothing, personal care products and food. That way you won’t forget anything, unless you forget to put it on the list!

2. Take a crock pot and food items that can be warmed in it so you can save money on eating out. We also take fruit, veggie sticks and other snack items as well because you can never know how expensive food will be at your destination.

3. Choose a lodging that offers you at least a refrigerator so you can store food.

4. Plan your activities for your family vacation before you leave so you can budget time and finances accordingly.

5. Plan on using more convenience items, after all it is your vacation too. One example of this would be in the area of food like a family sized can of chili or baked beans. Another would be the DiaperBud. It is a disposable diaper in a vacuum sealed package that is compact, easy to store in your purse, diaper bag, pocket or glove compartment. It’s really hard to stuff a normal diaper in the pocket of a jacket, even some purses won’t accommodate a diaper nicely. Also, the larger packs of DiaperBuds could save room while traveling. DiaperBuds are available at buybuyBaby, BabiesRUs.com, diapers.com and Amazon.com

Family vacations are a lot of work, but with proper planning it can definitely be enjoyable for all, including mom and dad! ;)

“I received a DiaperBud to review as a part of my participation in a MomPact.com campaign. DiaperBuds have been invented by moms, for moms.”
