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 Chose Formula Because That’s What Felt Right To Me

I chose to feed our sons with formula because that's what felt right to me

 

When I was pregnant with our oldest son, I was having a conversation with a man and breastfeeding came up. I stated that I planned on using formula rather than breast feeding. He got extremely defensive and possibly offended and said “you can’t tell me that it feels unnatural?!” That’s when I got offended, but I was so taken aback that I just shrugged my shoulders.

That comment has stuck with me for 8 years. How is a MAN going to say something like to me. Excuse me sir, but have you ever breast fed a baby? Have you ever had to watch every single thing that you put into your body because what you take in the baby does also. Have you ever needed to be concerned about the amount of milk that you’re producing, because if it’s not enough then your baby will starve? Have you ever have to worry about any of these problems?!

I made the choice to formula feed all of my boys because that was what felt right to me… plain and simple. My husband and I had many conversations about it, because he wanted me to breast feed. He finally gave up because he knew that if I was uncomfortable the baby would be as well. We just wanted to have happy babies and in turn be happy ourselves.

I know all of the facts about breast feeding. I know that it’s clinically proven to be better for baby. I know that it’s shown to bring the mother and child bond closer. Guess what? I still didn’t want to do it. I know myself and I knew that I would be miserable to be around if I couldn’t have my coffee in the morning, or be able to eat whatever I wanted. What good is a mother who is always miserable? Is that selfish, maybe, but I was not making this decision with only myself in mind, I was thinking about how all of these factors would affect everyone.

If mom is uncomfortable the baby will sense that. I wanted my babies to feel close to me, to feel my love and affection and not how nervous I was. I wanted my husband to be able to create a bond with our sons by feeding them. The ability to have that time of nothing but staring in each others eyes while they drink their bottle is ripped away from him if they can only go to mom for food.

I want to make it clear that I have absolutely no problem at all with mothers who breastfeed, or breastfeeding in general. I am an advocate for doing what feels most comfortable for you your baby. I don’t think that mothers should be pressured either way, that it a very personal decision in my opinion.

I’m very happy with our decision. All 3 of our boys are very happy, healthy little boys and that’s all that has ever mattered to me.
