Jack N' Jill Toothpaste Review & Giveaway

Sophia now has four teeth with two more that are poking out, which will be a total of SIX teeth in my little babies mouth. At her 9 month doctors appointment her doctor said we can go ahead and start brushing her teeth! I was so excited that I stopped at Target on the way home to pick up supplies for our first tooth brushing experience that we had planned on doing after her bath. Fast forward to a panicked mom looking at tons of toothpaste and brushes. I felt like a deer in head lights as I just stood there. I guess an employee thought so too as she kindly asked, "can I help you find something". I refrained from blurting out YES, how about the safest all natural toothpaste/toothbrush on the market that I know will be the best thing possible for the love of my life to use on a daily basis! I know I would have gotten a look as if I was crazy! But when it comes to our child I don't care. I want the best of the best! I ended up leaving the store empty handed (as far as dental hygiene products) because really who can leave Target empty handed!

I went home and did some research and was SHOCKED to see what is used in Top name brand children's toothpaste! I was so blinded by the big names and flashy advertising that I had NO CLUE what was in it! Lets just say you need to do your research when it comes to the toothpaste you are using! The fastest way to absorb anything in your body is through your mouth so that leaves direct access to these harmful ingredients to enter your body, or your child's! No thanks!
We received these products free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% Honest

One of the biggest concerns I had with other brands were all children's toothpaste is flavored, so naturally the child is going to want to swallow it, especially for the little ones that don't even know how to "spit" yet. Here is where I see a BIG concern, the warning that says,"WARNING, keep out of reach of children under the age of 6. If more than used for normal brushing is swallowed, contact your physician or local Poison Control Center immediately." Ok so why is there Fluoride in children's toothpaste?!?

I was given the opportunity to review Jack N' Jill toothpaste, toothbrushes and a fun travel bag. The first thing I did was hop on the net and see what I could find out. I was more than impressed and decided to wait a whole week before I even started Sophia's new nighttime routine. I stand by this product 100%! I love that Jack N' Jill is FLOURIDE FREE!! I also can't lie....I'm a sucker for packaging so it was even sweeter that I am Head over Heels for the design Jack N' Jill has! It's super cute and we have already filled her travel bag with both toothpastes and her toothbrush when we went to the beach house this weekend!

What the peeps at Jack N' Jill had to say:
Jack N' Jill is a natural toothpaste for babies, toddlers & children that is safe to swallow. It was first made in Melbourne, Australia in 1949 and it has been our family business for more than twenty years. It continues to be made in Australia and we are excited that Jack N' Jill is now available in the USA and UK as well. 
Jack N' Jill toothpaste is 100% safe for young children – especially because they have a tendency to swallow it, rather than spit it out! All Jack N' Jill packaging is designed to be appealing to children and is cute enough that parents won't mind it sitting on their bathroom vanity. Alongside the toothpaste we have designed and manufactured the first children’s toothbrushes that are made of NON GMO cornstarch, and are therefore biodegradable and recyclable. Did we mention 'cute'? 
At Jack N' Jill we believe that businesses have an obligation to the environment, that’s why we have formulated an all natural, hypoallergenic toothpaste with organic ingredients, and designed our packaging to be minimal, recyclable and BPA Free. 

I can't help it...I'm so tempted to go nuts this Halloween and hand out Jack N' Jill products to all the neighborhood kids! I actually think they would be thrilled! I did Play dough and Glow Necklaces last year and it was a hit!! This would be Super Cute too ;) I think the parents would get a kick out of it!
Jack N Jill gets better and better....They are offering one of my lucky readers the same products I received!!! 
- 1 x tube of Blackcurrant toothpaste
- 1 x tube of Strawberry toothpaste
- 1 x Silicone Tooth and Gum brush

Liptiful Review and Giveaway

Happy Fall Y'all!!! I'm getting super excited for the holidays and I have been making my infamous "wish list"! Now that Sophia is almost a year I wanted to start to feel womanly again (if that makes sense)! I swear its a rare occasion when I get all dressed up! I swear I've been making an effort to get beautified lately! ;)

A few weeks ago I was sent a product for review that was actually just for ME! WooHoo I was excited when my package of Liptiful  tools arrived! Its the ultimate beauty enhancer for those who DONT want plastic surgery! Now don't get me wrong you all know I have been there...You can read about that HERE! But times have changed! I don't want the dangers or costs of plastic surgery but have always wanted those big full collagen injected lips! My lips are so tiny...well that was before Liptiful! Its this beautiful clay tool used to give you plumper lips an tone you facial muscles...and IT WORKS! just after a few days I really started to notice a difference! I have completely fallen in love! I just pop the Liptiful on my lips and flip through a magazine, or watch a show. Doesn't take long, 5-10 minutes with instant results!

What is Liptiful? Here is what the peeps over there had to say,

"Naturally fuller lips is what we are all about! We sold the first-ever pocket lip tool beginning in 2012, and had the original ideas for those tools to help tone facial muscles if used correctly. Now we can share this super elite tool with you!"

"Liptiful is a simple but revolutionary approach to lip plumping based on the concept of naturally strengthening the facial and lip muscles with easy exercises or just plain suction done at home or wherever you are."

"Using our tool just minutes each day will provide you with fuller, plumper lips without costly procedures or medical risk! Have you seen our 100 reviews on Etsy? Ruth, our inventor, models below to show teens she truly cares that they're doing the best for their lips that is possible in these days where there's tons of peer pressure to try expensive methods. She demonstrates below her favorite tool that she uses for fun (she still is 12 so fun is the word)."
Feel free to look around there site at all the beautiful pics. " We've put a lot into our elite clay product and we want you to see how special and unique it really is. Not just for teens but rather a revolutionary way for women to plump in a beautiful way just like women should be treated."

Baby Booper Bean Bag Review

Momma's, have you ever had one of those days where you are trying to juggle a million things at once, all the while having to keep a constant eye on your baby or now active almost one year old?!? Do you wish you had a safe spot to put your baby while you got a few things done and you didn't have to worry about them getting hurt? The Baby Booper Bean Bag may be just what you are looking for and more!!
We received this product free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% honest!

The Baby Booper Bean Bag is a baby seat that allows your baby to sit in the most comfortable position all while being safely strapped in! The Baby Booper keeps them comfortable and calm while you actively get stuff done around the (for me today, the Kitchen!) Sophia had an issue with spitting up a lot when she was younger, oh how I wish I knew about the Baby Booper then! It would have saved me hundreds of hours with trying to get Sophia comfortable!

Unlike other bouncer seats, the Baby Booper Bean Bag Chair does not have any noisy mechanical parts and requires no batteries!! WooHoo! What I love the most is now that Sophia is on the move, I don't have to worry about her flipping the bouncy chair and getting injured! As soon as her Baby Booper came in the mail her metal wired bouncy seat got packed away!

The Baby Booper Bean Bag totally rocks, not only is it safe but its super trendy too!!! What baby do you know chilling on a bean bag drinking a bottle?!? It is seriously the coolest thing EVER! The patterns are super hip and there are so many to choose from! This bean bag is so padded and lush with beans it seriously gives your baby the utmost comfort! Not to mention it GROWS with your baby!! Sophia is almost one now and she is already sitting in her bean bag, watching shows, reading books, or even just hanging out!

Its lightweight and easy to transport too! I love the clear bag it comes in, you are able to throw it in the bag and use the handles as a carrier! It has already made a visit to Grammy's house! Although my mom has fallen completely in love and will be getting one for her house as well! It will be perfect for baby number two! I'll just zip the other cover on that has the seat belt!

If you are looking for a baby seat that is not only practical, trendy AND affordable then Baby Booper is definitely for you! If you haven't fallen in love with the Baby Booper by now here is some even more amazing facts about this Bean Bag!

Baby Booper Mission:

"Baby Beanbags is an American baby products company headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company’s mission is to delight parents and children with high quality, innovative products and outstanding customer service."

"Our founding product is the Baby Booper bean bag, an amazingly comfortable, high quality and innovative seating option for babies. The company constantly develops new designs and seeks other innovative and complimentary products to add to the current collection of Baby Booper bean bags."

Why Baby Booper you ask??

"This baby seat is fantastic quality and understandably receives "rave" reviews from parents, retailers and press reports. Plagiocephaly (Flat Head) is becoming more and more common, with doctors recommending that babies should be laid flat for as long as possible when they are young to provide them the optimum position to support their growing back and also the best breathing position for babies. Because of the micro beans in the BabyBooper seat, you can prevent your baby from suffering with Plagiocephaly, as your baby is supported by the beans but no pressure is put onto their head. BabyBooper bean bag style seat is also ideal for babies who are affected by reflux, the angle can be adjusted by moving the beans around inside the seat, and so you can ensure that baby is at exactly the right angle - something that we know is so important for babies with reflux. Once the baby is on the move, we recommend changing from the harnessed cover to the plain cover - this is often when you find that BabyBooper bean bags are your babies seat of choice!!"

"Again, you can use the BabyBooper in a variety of ways for your older baby, toddler or child. A comfy seat in the lounge, for watching TV or reading a book, a great place for a nap, can be used as a changing area and so many more uses too! This seat is the only seat on the market that will support your child up to the weight of 30 kg, approximately 6-8 years! So don't get caught purchasing cheaper imitations! An amazing bean bag that guarantees total comfort both to tiny babies as well as older children. It includes two upper layers that are detached and interchanged so that the bean bag will grow with your child. Once you have finished using the harness simply remove it and continue using the seat without a harness layer, as a beanbag seat."
Baby Booper bean bags are:
   - reflux inhibitor
   - anti-flathead
   - durable
   - portable
   - easy to clean
   - offer a wide range of health benefits  to your children

My Favorite Baby Booper features:

  • Cradles your child while on a safe bed of beads... Sophia has already had three naps on it! She is 10 months and the harness straps her in perfectly!
  • Easy to clean with removable covers. I have a messy baby ;)
  • Multi use: Once your baby is no longer a baby, change covers and it becomes an adorable bean bag chair! I love that I will be using this for years to come!
  • Adorable prints and no metal frame so you don't have to worry about preventing damage to the floor!

Stop By BABY BOOPER to order yours today for $69.99, they have the BEST customer service and can answer any questions you may have, or go check out the prints, rave reviews and other fabulous products Baby Booper sells! I know the Baby Neck Roll will be on Sophia's Christmas List!

Walking Wings Review

I'm always amazed when Sophia reaches a new milestone! From the baby that I never thought she would roll over to the now 10 month old who is attempting to WALK! When did this happen, where did my little baby go! It really did fly by! In the meantime we have been trying to keep our frustrated crawler, happy on her feet! We can tell she wants to walk so badly! Crawling got old quick...she flies, but now she wants to be up and running! It's been a blast, but after weeks of being hunched over helping Sophia walk all around the house are backs are in need of major down time! Well that went out the window as soon as Walking Wings arrived on our doorstep! We couldn't be more excited to receive this product for review, and what timing!

Hear what the peeps at Walking Wings had to say,

Good for Babies & Parents:

"Walking Wings is a unique padded support vest that securely fastens around the chest of the baby and has two adjustable straps for parents to hold while baby learns to walk and attempts to take those first steps."

"Walking Wings was created by pediatricians and medical experts to help your baby safely learn to walk by balancing hands-free and experiencing fewer falls. Walking Wings eliminates the tugging and pulling on baby's arms which can result in Nursemaid's elbow - the most common orthopedic injury in children age 2."

"Parents and caregivers benefit from Walking Wings by being able to better support baby while standing upright and not having to bend over for prolonged periods of time. Both parent and baby are more comfortable and confident as baby starts to take those magical first steps!"

Pediatrician recommended for babies learning to walk (6+ months)
Allows baby to balance hands-free
Reduces falls
Builds confidence and stability
Reduces back strain for parents
Vest fits 19-26 chest circumference
Machine washable
Available in Blue or Pink

So When should you buy and start using your walking wings?!?!?

"Parents and caregivers should use Walking Wings once  baby is showing interest that he/she is ready to practice walking. Click here to learn more about signs your baby is ready to walk.  If your baby has good balance, can bear weight unassisted and is clearly interested in walking, he/she is ready for Walking Wings." I couldn't agree more!! Sophia mastered crawling but then grew board she loves being up right and cruises along all the furniture! She just started to stand for long periods of time (long for Ralph and I) About a minute or two! Ha!

Although she loves when Ralph and I hold her hands and she is able to walk all over the house! After 15 minutes of this I'm hunched over holding my back! Its a lot! Never mind doing it for 30 minutes!  Walking Wings has truly saved us and made our Baby HAPPY! Sophia acts so proud when she makes her way into the office, kitchen, playroom, anywhere really! If there is someone in the room to greet her when she walks through she is grinning from ear to ear! One thing I also noticed was how she is able to balance more now that she has her arms free! Because I'm not holding her hands she can stretch her arms out and use that added balance that she will need to have when she finally does master walking!

Ready to take those first steps together? Get Walking Wings now. Only $24.99!

We also received the Milk be honest I have never heard of this. What a genius invention!!

Here is some info on this amazing product,

Milkscreen Alcohol is an easy to use at home test to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milk. Milkscreen Alcohol test strips detect the presence of alcohol at 13.1 mg/dL or greater in breast milk.
Because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently, the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to leave your breast milk also varies. Alcohol is not trapped in breast milk, and draining your breasts will not expedite the elimination of the alcohol out of your system.
Over time your body will naturally metabolize the alcohol from your breast milk but the only way to know for certain that the alcohol is gone is to test your breast milk. A "feeling" of intoxication or non-intoxication is not an accurate indicator of determining if alcohol is present or not in breast milk.

Milkscreen Alcohol is a consumer product, and not intended to be used in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of alcohol intoxication or poisoning or other health-related conditions in women or nursing babies.

Sophia is 10 Months

SOPHIA is TEN Months OLD!!!!!

Weight: 21 lbs.
Height: 29 inches.

Avocado, Hummus, Sweet Potato, all greens, (green beans, kale, spinach, peas, if its green she LOVES it!), water, like drinks a few baby Poland springs a day!

Having her Diaper Changed...She usually escapes and takes off naked!

{Sleeping} Still going up around 7:30 and in bed by 9. Sleeping until 9:00 or so in the morning, it's Great!! I've heard a few people say you wont get lucky like that with #2 so enjoy it. She will take 1 long nap around 10:30-11 that lasts about an hour and a half….and sometimes another long nap, or a few cat naps in the afternoon.

It really has been a BIG month, it is amazing how much they can pick up! Sophia has mastered waving Hello and Bye Bye, pulling up and standing all the time, talking up a storm, trying to walk, she also speed crawls all over the house! She has also just started doing "Kiss" and making the Mauh sound every time we say it! She catches and throws mini beach balls, all while saying baall, baaaalll. I can not believe how much she has changed this month. I am really excited to see what 10 months brings, because 9 months ROCKED!!!

{Movement} She is a crazy crawler!! She now lifts her knees off the ground and even gets up in the standing position on her own!!! She cruises along all of the furniture!!! She is always on the move!

{Eating} Eating has been really easy. She is not a picky eater, she nurses throughout the day and likes to have whatever we are having. Some of her favorites being guacamole, hummus and Sweet Potato!

{Teething} No new teeth. Still has 4!

{Talking} Saying, Dadda, Ball, Momma and lots of single letter sounds when she is just babbling throughout the day! I think Ralph was ecstatic that her first word was Dadda....but it quickly gave way to her favorite activity BALL!!! She plays catch, roll and throw all day! 

It has been a very busy summer, we have been spending time at the beach house, going to play groups, cookouts, birthday parties, Sophia's christening, baby movies, museums, zoo's, picnics ...Really, you name it we have done it! I am SOOOOO Excited that the air is getting cool though....I can't wait for FALL!!! Last year Sophia was brand new ;) the holidays were so magical but I can only imagine what they will be like this year. She will be able to pick her own pumpkins at the patch, get her own apples, go trick or treating, open her own presents, try cake on her 1st Birthday,  have Nonni's Thanksgiving Dinner!!! I really could do on an on! We are so excited!!

Happy 10 Months Baby Girl!

Buttons Diaper Review

 Buttons Cloth Diapers have won Sophia's Daddy over (Us Too!!) We have been sorting through lots of cloth diapers through the past few weeks. Trying to weigh in on ones work best for Sophia and our Family. From the day they arrived on our door step I was sold! I'm a sucker for detail (love the stitched button on the back) and presentation, and they called delivered like a beautiful Birthday present! Take a peek...

I loved the Bold color, Ralph loved the design (specifically the button in place center) and Sophia loved how comfortable they were! Another Huge reason why we fell in love with Button's cloth diapers were, it's a family business! We Love to support family's, here is the back story, "Buttons cloth diapers were born at home. As a husband and wife team, we designed our diapers to be easy to use and affordable for everyone - the way it should be. We believe in keeping our lives simple, even when it comes to diapering. Our company is based in the beautiful Skagit Valley of Northwest Washington, where our family enjoys hiking, biking, sailing, and splashing in puddles. Our diapers are CPSIA certified, which means they are safe for your baby and good for the environment."
We got the larger insert, Sophia is a growing girl. What I think is fabulous is these diapers grow with your baby, right into toddler! Which saves money not having to buy the "next size up". Ralphs favorite feature as I mentioned before is the two snaps. I didn't realize how much the microfiber inserts shifted and cause leaks until I had the Buttons Cloth Diaper to see the difference. Sophia is very active and she is always on the move!

Overall we think Buttons Cloth Diapers are a 10!!!
