She {hearts} Chewbeads

As those of you who are moms know, babies LOVE to play with whatever jewelry you happen to be wearing!  I started looking for a great teething necklace since my 18-month-old is in the throws of teething and I have a new baby on the way.

Chewbeads is a great company that makes teething jewelry that you actually will want to wear!  The fun jewelry line is made out of 100% silicone, which is totally safe for babies to chew on (read about the safety features here)!  I received a Jane necklace in chartreuse to review.  I can’t stop wearing it!  My daughter has already gotten quite attached to this necklace and loves to chew on it at any opportunity.  This statement necklace is SO cute and I get compliments when I wear it!

Chewbeads has a great variety of styles and colors to choose from, including bracelets as well as necklaces.  You’ll have a hard time picking out your favorite design!

I was recently introduced to a fabulous new company called Funky Giraffe.  They make the most adorable bandana style baby bibs and my girls were super excited to try their new bibs!

Things I love about Funky Giraffe bibs:

  • they are crazy soft (the front is a cotton knit and the back is a polyester fleece) and comfy to wear
  • they come in a huge variety of patterns and colors
  • they have adjustable snaps so they fit perfectly and make it very difficult for a baby/toddler to rip off :)
  • they look so super cute!

She {hearts} little green pouch

 

My daughter is a super picky eater.  And the only way I’m able to get her to eat a good serving of fruits and veggies, is with those squeezable fruits and vegetable pouches.  She’ll eat them straight from the pouch and in her morning oatmeal.  But watch out, if I run out of them, it’s toddler tantrum time.  That’s why I was so excited to learn about Little Green Pouch!

Little Green Pouch was created by two moms who wanted to make getting those fruits and veggies to children easier and greener!  It is designed with a fill-able zippered seal to add your own favorite pureed foods.  The pouches are reuse-able and made of durable, BPA -free, PVC-free and phthalate-free plastic.  The pouches are even dishwasher safe.

 

You can find a list of great recipe ideas on Little Green Pouch website.  I created my own for my daughter with blueberries, bananas and plain Greek yogurt.  I must admit, it was pretty yummy.

Little Green Pouch also provides other utensils such as a funnel, brush, pitcher and labels to make your fruit and veggie puree making a little more easier.  Get connected with Little Green Pouch on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest!

Little Green Pouch is giving away a four pack of the reusable food pouches.  Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter.

She {hearts} Muchilunga

IMG_2488_withlogoI came across Muchilunga at a Christmas Show a couple of years ago. As soon as I saw their clothing line I knew my daughter had to have one of their dresses! I purchased one for her that particular year and used it during our family portrait session. The next year when I went back to the same Christmas Show, I was so excited to see a Muchilunga booth again, and I had to buy another one of their adorable dresses! To the left is a photo of my friends daughter whom we passed our first Muchilunga dress down to. She even wore it for her 2 year portrait session!

Of the two Muchilunga dresses my daughter owns, they are both from their fall line of clothing and they are easily some of my favorite dresses of hers. But this year’s summer line is oh so adorable too! You’ve got to go check out the cuteness oozing from their website. Their clothing is so unique from all the rest out there and everything they have is adorable!

They offer girls dresses, pants, shirts, and the cutest rompers. But boys and Mommies aren’t left out because they also have shirts and bow-ties for boys and I’m in love with their Mommy tunics.

She {hearts} Toddle Green

Potty training is serious business.  Okay, maybe not that serious.  But I do feel like there are many choices that need to be made in how, where and what to potty train with.  With lots of advice and opinions from family and friends, I decided to let Baby C lead the way.  I chose to forgo the bribery (which I hear works wonders) and replace it with encouragement and praise.  And when it came to deciding on what kind of potty to use, that was a tough decision.  I wanted her to be independent and able to sit on the potty herself.  I wanted her feet to be grounded so she could push out her BM’s.  But the thought of cleaning out the stand alone potty grossed me out.  Until I came across Toddle Green.

Toddle Green provides eco-friendly, flushable potty liners that fits all potty chairs with removable bowls.  The potty liners are made from water-soluble, 100% bio-degradable, non-toxic material that is sewer and septic safe.  The liner provides a protective barrier so waste can be removed easily and flushed without having to clean and sanitize the potty each time.  My daughter has yet to actually do her business in her potty seat, but she has come a long way from not wanting to sit on the potty with her bare bum, to asking to sit and go potty without a diaper on.

The liner fits perfectly on my daughter’s Nuby potty seat.  And we flushed a liner down the toilet to see it in action.  It flushed with ease, just like toilet paper (maybe even better).  My husband and I are no longer afraid of when she actually does do her duty.  We’ll be super excited to use the liners.  And as for my daughter, she loves sitting on the liners.

Using the Toddle Green liners is very simple too.  Open the box and fit a liner over your clean, dry potty bowl.  Place the potty bowl back in the chair and then once the liner has been used, lift and flush.  It just can’t get any easier than that.  You can purchase a box (30 liners) of Potty Liners for $11.95 at ToddleGreen.com Stay connected with Toddle Green on Facebook and Twitter.  Toddle Green is giving away a box of liners to one lucky reader.  Fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter!

She {hearts} NatureBox

We all like our snacks in this house. Sometimes, we like them a little too much! It’s nice to see a company like NatureBox helping a Mom like me make snacking easier AND healthier. With a monthly subscription of $19.95, you will receive a Discovery Box stuffed full of nutritionist-approved snacks. Each month is different, so your test buds won’t get bored. And they are so sure you will love your healthy snacks, they will happily issue you a refund if you aren’t completely satisfied (and you can cancel at any time!

In the sample box we received, we got the Wild Berry Bunch (a great alternative to sugar-filled fruit snacks), All Natural Yogurt Pretzels, Whole Wheat Raspberry Figgy Bars, Peanut Butter Nom Noms, Cashew Power Clusters (I ate the whole bag in one sitting, YUM!), Blueberry Almond Bites, and my personal favorite, Sunshine Chips (a great alternative to potato chips made up of sweet potatoes, carrots, squash and green beans, tossed with delicious sea salt). The serving sizes were perfect: not too much, and not too little. My hubby even snagged a bag or two to take to the office for his mid-day snacking.

In addition to the monthly subscriptions, NatureBox is offering an “EasterBox” (for a limited time) in hopes to replace the candy and high sugar treats stashed in Easter Baskets all across the country this year. If you order by March 15 it is guaranteed to be on your doorstep by Easter. Filled with SEVEN full-sized snacks and not requiring any membership, this is the perfect time to try out NatureBox.
