She {hearts} Evenflo Right Fit Booster Car Seat

My family and I will be hitting the road this weekend for one last hurrah before we fall gracefully into the school year. And since road injuries are the leading cause of preventable death and injuries in children in the United States, Evenflo wanted to make sure that safety and comfort of older kids was being addressed. The Evenflo Right Fit Booster Car Seat offers a 2-in-1 design, allowing it to be used as a high-back booster, and then later on transforming to a backless booster. It has e3 foam integrated into the head and back to reduce side impact forces. Cosmetically, there are a variety of colors to choose from and the addition of 2 activity lights allow the child to read and play, even after dark. A correctly installed car seat can reduce the risk of death by 71%, so be sure to check out SafeKids.org for more helpful tips and info on children’s travel safety.

 photo IMG_0521_zps44194d3f.jpgKidsme feeder is an award winning baby feeder. The design is sleek- the silicone sac looks almost like a pacifier, with handles allowing baby a comfortable hold, and a lid that serves as a nice “practice cup.”

Honestly I’m not sure how the silicone sac would hold up to teeth, which my other three all had by the time they began solids, but my guess would be not well long term (replacement sacs are available) /*update* company noted they have not had issues with teeth affecting sac/. However with Bo, who is still toothless at nearly 7 months, I’ve found the Kidsme Feeder to be a great transition from exclusively nursing to eating solids- particularly since I don’t bother with baby food and just feed my babies off my plate. The feeder encouraged him to learn to chew without the danger of choking which especially gives my husband piece of mind. After using the feeder for a few weeks he now has been gumming bites like a pro by himself, though we still use it occasionally so he can easily self feed!

The feeder is dishwasher safe, and doubles as a teether- just pop in some ice or frozen food. Another thing I love is that the sac sizes are interchangeable, which means you can purchase one feeder in small or large and additional replacement sacs in the other size separately.

I have been searching for a sweet and unique blanket for Guinnyth.  I wanted something that was different than the blankets I see at the big box stores, and something that she could cling to when we were sleeping at different places.  When I went searching, I came across an adorable shop, Mirabelle Lane.  I love the fabrics Laura, Mirabelle Lane owner, put together for her blankets and burp cloths.  She has some vintage inspired patterns along with some ultra modern pieces.

mirabelle lane collageWhen we received our blanket, Guinnyth instantly took to it and started rubbing the soft, minky material.  It has been in her crib with her ever since!  I love that they are the perfect size for a little one.  They aren’t too big, so there is no fear of the baby getting tangled in it.  They are the perfect size to hold on to and snuggle with.  

mirabelle lane snuggle blanketMirabelle Lane also offers other sweet items for your little one.  There are burp cloths, wash rags, binky clips, and hair clips.

  • they come in a huge variety of patterns and colors

She {hearts} Happy Wrap

Happy Wrap Logo

Happy Wrap stock photoBaby wearing is a topic near and dear to my heart.  I still remember being pregnant with my second child, and wondering how I would ever keep up with a busy 2 year old and a newborn baby.  At that time, a friend of mine was visiting from another Province.  She told me about the wrap that she had and showed me how to use it.  I knew I had found my solution!

That was 6 years and a few babies ago.  Just a month ago I gave birth to our fourth child.  Life with four kids is fast paced and full of action!  Once again, I am in love with baby wearing, and in particular, the Happy Wrap.  It allows me to have my hands free while I tend to my older children.  Babies love to be near to mama, and this way no one has to miss out on my attention.

IMG_7940

The Happy Wrap is made from organic bamboo fabric.  It is incredibly soft and has the perfect amount of stretch.  The beauty of this type of carrier is that it is a one size fits all, so you don’t need to have a different carrier for Mom & Dad.

I think what impressed me the most is their clear instructions and commitment to safety.  The website is full of great information for those who are new to baby wearing and this particular type of carrier.

The Happy Wrap is available in 5 fantastic colours and costs $48.

She {hearts} Bizzy Babee

Bizzybabee-logo-normal-300x73Bizzy Babee started with the premise than any mom should feel comfortable nursing anywhere!  A mompreneur started marketing Bizzy Babee nursing covers when she realized she wasn’t the only mom who needed this great product!

Here’s what they say about Bizzy Babee:

The bizzy babee wrap was not only designed to give nursing mothers a new chic, modern look, but to give modest layering to cover your entire upper body to build nursing confidence. No more fussing with blankets that your infant can pull down or wearing unattractive nursing clothes. Our product is modest, lightweight and compact enough to fit into a purse or diaper bag.

 

bizzybabeecover2

As you can tell in these pictures, I feel awesome wearing the Bizzy Babee nursing cover!  It provides the perfect amount of coverage without calling attention to the fact that I am nursing.  I can easily peak in to check on my nursing babe, and I don’t have to worry about my back being exposed on a park bench or other public place.  True coverage and freedom!  This wrap/cover is buttery soft and comes in several fun colors.

If you’re a mom, a grandmother, or someone who cares for little ones on a regular basis, you’re going to want this product as soon as you see it.  I fell in love with it at first sight!anywherechair

Introducing… the Anywhere Chair from RUND baby!  This “chair” (actually a uniquely shaped piece of fabric) simply fastens onto a normal chair to create a highchair for your baby or toddler anytime and anywhere you need it!  Genius, I’m telling you.  And what else would you expect from a talented mompreneur?  Melissa of RUND baby is a mom of three and manages this Etsy business from her home, creating products that are innovative and beautiful.  (Not a mom? Check out her tote bags and cash envelope systems!)rund_baby_toddlers

I tried out the Anywhere Chair with my 1 year old and my 2.5 year old, and it worked perfectly for either of them!  My 2.5 year old actually begged to be put back in it again after we took photos.  The hook and loop fastening in the back was strong enough to keep my lunging 1 year old from unfastening it, and the whole system was easy enough to quickly secure my very wiggly 2.5 year old.  The entire chair folds up neatly and can be shoved in a diaper bag or kept in the car.  It is machine washable and is made with beautiful designer fabrics!  (My print is called “Windy Day,” in case you’re wondering.)rund_baby_detail

This would make a great gift … but I know you want to buy one for yourself too!  Fortunately, we also have a giveaway today (yay!).
