No more missing pacifiers in this house!

Paci Clips 500x500


Paci Clips 500x500I’ve always been against pacifier clips because of the metal clip that could tear our boys clothes or possibly cut their fingers if they grab one that’s open. We have had countless missing pacifiers and have had late night trips to the store so that one of the boys could go to sleep. I’ve been introduced to Stuff4Tots cotton pacifier clips which solves both of those problems!

I really like these pacifier clips because they have a plastic clip so they won’t tear clothes if tugged on, and we tested this, I asked S2 to pull as hard as he could with it attached to his shirt. Not only could he not tear it off of his shirt, but there was no mark left at all! Since they’re plastic they also won’t rust, which means they’ll last so much longer.I really like these pacifier clips because they have a plastic clip so they won't tear clothes… Click To TweetClips

They come with 4 in a pack and have both a boy and girl set. I loved the boy set, except that there was one that was striped and had multiple pink stripes on it. It doesn’t bother me to the point that I wouldn’t use it, but in the picture online it looks more orange than pink, so it’s a little deceiving. They would make wonderful baby shower gifts, or stocking stuffers for new babies!

I was easily able to get the pacifier through the loop, however, if you had a pacifier that doesn’t have the little dangle on it I’m not sure how it would work. It would definitely work best with the pacifiers that have the loop on the front. You may be able to twist the loop around the round part of a pacifier that doesn’t have the loop, but I’m not sure if that would work, since I’ve never tried, we don’t  have any of that type here.

I was easily able to open and close these one handed. Let’s be real… if we’re in need of one of these, we’re doing most things one handed!

Pocket bibs are my best friend!

Pocket Bib FB


Once your child starts feeding themselves you’ll find that there is a whole other meal on the floor around them… unless you have a dog… then they get another meal! I’ve found that pocket bibs are my best friend once this starts to happen. Most of the food ends up in the pouch of the bib and not the floor.

Pocket bibs PinterestI’ve found a great pocket bib that I absolutely love! It’s a silicone pocket bib by Baby Go-Green that is so soft. I’ve had many silicone bibs for all 3 boys because they’re typically the only ones that have the pocket and these are by far the softest that I’ve found.

They have 2 fasteners which is the first time that I’ve seen a bib like that. I love the double fasteners for our 2-year-old. He always tries pulling his bib off and is typically successful, but with the 2 duel fasteners what usually happens is 1 will come undone and I’m able to get over to him before he gets it completely off. I’ve used these bibs for about 2 weeks now and he’s yet to get it off!

My absolute favorite thing about these bibs is that they're waterproof and dishwasher safe! Click To Tweet

My absolute favorite thing about these bibs is that they’re waterproof and dishwasher safe! I just toss them into the top rack of the dishwasher and haven’t had any issues. I’m part Sicilian so I make a lot of pasta dishes, which means that we have lots of little clothes with red stains on them and the bibs are no exception. Some of the other Silicone bibs that I have are stained from spaghetti dinner, and I’ve tossed them into the dishwasher also. The Baby Go-Green bibs have yet to stain!

The pockets on these are a nice size so they catch quite a bit. They sit a little high on our 2-year-old but they still seem to catch his mess nicely. I even catch him eating out of it when his plate is cleaned!

Dot & Dot Stroller Organizer

Dot & Dot Stroller Organizer

I’ve been introduced to stroller organizers recently and they’ve completely changed the way that I travel with the kiddos. I no longer need to lug along a diaper bag with us everywhere we go! I love this new stroller organizer that I’ve found by Dot & Dot, it’s so versatile! It can be used as a stroller organizer, car organizer that hangs on the back of a seat, bike organizer or a small travel diaper bag!

This organizer comes with 2 drink holders that easily fits a sippy cup or a bottle. It also has a covered middle pocket that’s nice for baby food, formula containers or even a change of clothes! The flap that covers the middle section has a magnet so it stays closed really well.

Dot & Dot Stroller Organizer

There is also a nice zippered front pocket that is perfect for diapers and wipes or a change of clothes. I was easily able to fit 3 diapers and a travel package of baby wipes. I really like the cell phone pocket in front also. My iPhone 5 fit perfectly! It’s so nice having everything that you need right at your fingertips… literally! I don’t need to deal with having to bend down and trying to dig something that I need out of the diaper bag anymore!

Dot & Dot Stroller Organizer

This organizer comes with 2 swivel hooks that you can use to hang it from the handle bars. When they’re hanging you can move it around so that it’s easier to get bottles out when needed. It also comes with a long strap that clips into both sides so that you can use it as a little diaper bag if needed. There is also a medium strap that you can use to hang it from the back of your car seat, that way if your child is forward facing they can reach their sippy cups!

I love how many uses this stroller organizer has! It would make a perfect baby shower gift!

Simply Amazed by Baltic Amber Teething Necklace

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace Review


I don’t know about you, but our son becomes a drool monster when he’s teething! He chews on everything in sight and I always have to change his shirts because they become so soaked with drool. I’ve been thinking about investing in a Baltic Amber Teething Necklace for quite a while and recently I was given the opportunity to review a mother/ son set by Baltic Essentials at no cost in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.Baltic Amber Teething Necklace Review

If you don’t know much about Baltic Amber, that’s ok! I’ll give you a quick run through as to the benefits of using it for your little ones. Baltic Amber contains a substance called Succinic Acid (which sounds scary I know, but it’s not). When the amber is worn it is heated by the body causing the release of an oil containing Succinic Acid. It is said to help block pain and inflammation, which is why it works so well for teething. It works best when worn near the area causing pain which is why using it as a necklace works great for teething babies.

Simply Amazed by Baltic Amber Teething NecklaceI have also received a necklace for myself! These necklaces are most commonly known for their aid in the teething process, but they also have benefits for adults. They have been known to help with regulation of thyroid levels and anxiety amongst many other things. I have something called Hashimoto’s Disease, which basically means that my body is attacking my thyroid and I need to take medication daily for it’s regulation. I’m hoping that this necklace will also help with my T4 levels. As I said before, it helps with pain and inflammation, so if you have arthritis it can help with that also when wearing a bracelet. If I get more interest in the use of adult or older children, I can write another post about that!

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace Review

I am simply amazed at how quickly it started working for our little guy! Within the first 12 hours of putting it around his neck I noticed that the amount of drool that he had been producing was significantly less… almost none at all. Typically his shirt is soaking wet half way through the day and I have to change it… once the necklace was on I never had to change it! It’s not only helping his comfort level, but it’s helping me out with the amount of laundry that I have to do each day!!!

He started cutting his two front teeth about 2 weeks ago and they’re just starting to come through his gums. Since he started cutting them he has been non stop chewing on everything in sight! Within 24 hours of putting this necklace on him I have only caught him chewing on something a couple of times. He is so much more comfortable, which makes me feel better.

If you’re wondering whether or not I keep the necklace around his neck while he sleeps, the answer is no. I try to follow safe sleep as much as possible, so when I can tell that he’s getting tired I will put it around his ankle. It’s very easy, I just have to wrap it around his ankle twice and then twist the clasp… the hardest part is trying to keep his little leg still while I do it. It is loose enough that I can just slide it off so I will either put a sock over it, or his footed pajamas so that it doesn’t come off while he chews on his feet.Simply Amazed by Baltic Amber Teething Necklace

These necklaces are made with a twist-in screw clasp so the chances of them falling off are very slim. Each bead is safety knotted just in case the necklace does happen to break. They’re made of 100% Genuine Baltic Amber and are Therapeutic Quality. They are also Amber International Certified as well as sample tested locally.

 

If you’ve ever considered purchasing a Baltic Amber necklace for yourself, or teething infant I would highly recommend looking into Baltic Essentials.

Review of Changing Pad Cover by Ziggy Baby

My Review of the Grey and White Chevron and Polka Dot Changing Pad Covers by Ziggy Baby


I was given the opportunity to review these very nice grey and white changing pad covers by Ziggy Baby. Overall I was pretty impressed with these.

I actually put them on our cradle mattress pad and they fit perfectly! They’re a little thin, but it didn’t bother me at all for changing diapers. I would be very comfortable using it as a sheet as well, as long as it had a little pad underneath so that it wasn’t cold. They’re very soft, made from 100% Jersey Cotton.

I love the 2 patterns of grey and white chevron and polka dot, they’re a perfect unisex gift! They would be great for a baby shower gift.

They are also backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!

My Review of the 3 Pack SavvyBaby Swaddle Blankets

Here is my review of the SavvyBaby Swaddle Blanket


I was given the opportunity to review the 3 pack SavvyBaby Swaddle Blankets. I was very impressed with these blankets! They are made from 100% cotton, so they’re nice and breathable. They have 3 different unisex patterns that are really nice and the velcro works perfectly.

I have tried many different types of swaddle blankets between all 3 boys and I was very impressed with the SavvyBaby swaddle blankets! The cotton was nice and soft and felt very high quality so I had no problem putting S3 into it. I really like cotton swaddles because they’re so breathable that you’re able to put your little one into any type of outfit that you’d like and not have to worry about them overheating with the swaddle on. Here is my review of the SavvyBaby Swaddle Blanket

The package states that these swaddle blankets are for a weight of 7-14 lbs, but S3 is almost 18 lbs and he fit into it. It was a bit of a tight squeeze because of his length but I was still able to velcro the sides nicely and he did great in it! I wasn’t able to secure the middle velcro, but that’s only because he was technically too big, otherwise it would have secured perfectly. I think that it size for these is right on, and it gives you a good 3-4 months of use before you would need to upgrade to a larger size, if needed.

My Review of the SavvyBaby 3 pack Swaddle Blankets

I was impressed with the quality of the velcro on these swaddle blankets. I have had some where the velcro don’t stick very well, or didn’t have a place to stick when I was washing it, but these do! Once S3 tried escaping he wasn’t able to pop the velcro, which I thought was impressive, since he’s 4 lbs larger than the package states. Each velcro tab easily fold down when you’re using it so that it doesn’t stick to everything in the washing machine, which was a plus for me because I hate when clothes stick together and a lot of the time it causes damage to the other piece of clothing.

The unisex design was really nice! We didn’t find out of the sex of any of out children, so we had a lot of unisex colored things, and a lot those unisex items were still either too girly for the boys or too boyish for girls. These are a chevron, polka dot and plain green, so I would be very comfortable using these on either a girl or boy.

I think that it price of these blankets it spot on. The cost of similar swaddle blankets on the market are around $10 more and the quality of these is just as good. I would easily pay the $22 for these great blankets! They also offer a 100% money back guarantee if for some reason you’re not happy with their product!

**I received this product for free in exchange for an UNBIASED review

If you’re looking for a unisex baby shower gift, new baby gift, or you just need a new swaddle blanket for your little one I think that you would be very satisfied with these. You can order them from Amazon here

I Love The Universal Stroller Organizer by Groovy Baby

I Love The Universal Stroller Organizer by Groovy Baby


I have officially found my new favorite mommy helper product! It’s called the Universal Stroller Organizer – Premium Design by Groovy Baby. It literally fits everything that I need for a quick trip with the stroller, so it eliminates the need of a diaper bag all of the time.

It has 2 insulated cup holders that are very large! I was able to fit 2 different types of bottles in them, and mom’s morning coffee would definitely fit in one. There is a large covered center compartment that I was able to fit the round container that I put formula in on the go, a jar of baby food, baby spoon and my clutch in. I liked that it’s covered so no one can see my clutch sitting in there.You NEED this amazing Universal Stroller Organizer by Groovy Baby

There’s an easily removable front pouch that comes off with a zipper. I was able to put 4 size 4 diapers and a travel pack of baby wipes into. It was a little bit of a tight squeeze, but I made it work and it still zipped. My cell phone also easily fit into the little mesh pocket that it made for cell phones.

The only thing that I wasn’t able to fit was a spare set of clothes, but I’m sure that if I took my clutch out of the center compartment that I could fit a spare outfit in there! I’m seriously so thrilled about this find because I hate having to haul around a diaper bag, even if I can just toss it underneath the stroller.

**I was given this product at a deep discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. And I’m telling you… you NEED this thing! I want to know where it was 2 boys ago lol! If this is something that you’re interested in, and you should be, you can purchase it here.
