Gear Guide: My Little Legs

Most parents (nowadays) know how AWESOME baby leg warmers are. My tot has been in them since he came home from the hospital. And most of you know I’ve posted a pic or two of him sleeping as cozy as can be in his favorite blue pair. So it should come as no surprise that…

Gear Guide: Burpie Bundles

As a mom who has gone through GALLONS of stain remover in the last two years, I can tell you there is NOTHING more valuable when it comes to your tots meal time supplies than a quality bib. Most are either so thick your tot can’t get their arms around it, or so thin they…

Gear Guide: Episencial

Skin care is a HIGH priority in our home, as both my tot and myself suffer from extremely sensitive skin. Neither of us can handle heavily perfumed or synthetic products regardless of their so-called “hypoallergenic” formulas. Doing so almost certainly flares the ‘ol eczema and leaves our skin looking more fowl-like than human. So the fabulous folks behind Episencial Skin Care recently…

Gear Guide: The Littlest Learners

My followers already know what a junkie I am for wooden children’s toys. Nothing beats their ability to inspire creativity and imagination in our tots- especially when compared to the plastic monstrosities you find in most department stores. That’s why I LOVE receiving wooden toys from small independent companies to review.  Not only does it spread the word about…

Gear Guide: The Preppy Owl Boutique

I recently received a few Eco-friendly reusable sandwich and snack bags to try from The Preppy Owl Boutique. If your like me, and go through box after box of disposable plastic sandwich and snack bags, you’ll find these bags to be genius. Each bag is guarenteed to contain no PVC, no Phthalate, no BPA, and no Lead.  And…

NUBY USA No-Slip Easy Grip Cup

We were SUPER excited this week when we received a brand new NUBY No-Spill Easy Grip cup from NUBY USA to try. Any mom will tell you that finding “the perfect sippy” isn’t easy. Luckily, we’ve tried SEVERAL brands and styles, so we felt up to the challenge. When our cup arrived my tot immediately demanded “more”, which…

Gear Guide: Smiling Tree Toys

When we first discovered we were expecting we’d stay up late at night laying out our parental expectations with one another. We’d discuss what we’d feed our tot, how we’d dress him, what schools we’d eventually send him to, and of course what toys he’s play with. At the top of our list was natural,…

Baby Babble Review

I cannot say enough about Talking Child’s video Baby Babble. It is by far my tot’s favorite video, and has been since our friendly delivery man dropped it off on our door step over a year ago. Baby Babble is an interactive speech-enhancing video, brought to you by speech-language pathologists Amy Chouinard and Cory Poland,…

Zarbee’s – Safe. Effective. Natural.

Any parent will tell you battling a tot sized cold can be a giant sized problem. There are very few products available to soothe your little one without overwhelming their tiny bodies with chemicals that are developed primarily for adults (or at the very least older children). So this week, when my tot caught THE mega cold,…

bumGenuis 3.0 AIO Review

With so many cloth diaper choices today, one can become overwhelmed. If you know you want the convenience of an AIO (All-In-One) diaper, but are unsure on the brand, order bumGenius 3.0. You cannot get a better diaper for the money. They hold up to rigorous washes, have excellent, strong closures and come in several…

Imse Vimse Liner Review

At 15 months, my tot is still too young to potty train, but old enough to make a massive mess in his diaper. Since we are a cloth diapering family, cleaning up said mess often results in a “I did it last time” debate between mommy and daddy. So a few weeks ago I went…

Buddy Fruit Review

Lets be honest. Providing quality, nutritious snacks for your tot when you’re on the run is difficult. I will admit that my tot has had the occasional french fry or chicken nugget to pacify him when we’re out for an extending shopping trip. I know its less than healthy, but being the mom of a…
