JJ Cole Satchel Bag

JJ Cole Satchel Bag

One must have that I would recommend to a new mom is a great bag to keep everything organized. A bag that can keep all things for baby at a hands reach while also having enough room to bring all things a baby might need.

Keep track of baby’s necessities in style. The spacious interior includes multiple organizational compartments while the exterior offers easily-accessible open and zippered pockets.

• available in canvas and faux leather
• 7 exterior, 4 interiors pockets
• bottle pocket
• removable, padded shoulder strap
• includes grips™ stroller attachments

One of my newest bags is the JJ Cole Satchel Bag.  Not only is it really roomy but it looks modern and classy. There are 11 pockets throughout the bag: 7 exterior, 4 interiors pockets, and a  bottle pocket! My kids are not babies anymore but this bag still works great for me.  I am able to pack things like wipes, sanitizer, drinks, snacks and more in it while having everything organized. I also love that I can fit my purse in it and not have to carry that as well. You can get it in canvas and faux leather and a variety of modern prints.  It also has a coordinating changing pad, perfect for those on the go diaper changes. This is such a great bag, I am not sure how I ever lived without it! This bag is for the modern mom that wants to stay organized while also looking great! I can’t wait to get my expecting friend one of them. She is going to love it!

Munchkin

Munchkin

I have always loved Munchkin products. Their feeding supplies and cups for little ones have always been a favorite. Their products are not only affordable but durable. My kids love using their plates and cups for meals. Their vibrate fun colors make them really great for kids and get my kids more excited to eat.

They also have really fun toys for babies and toddlers. My kids have loved playing with their Bath Star. It is a battery operated fountain for the bath. It also has lights on it making it really fun for kids. My kids could play with this for hours and it has made bath time so much more fun.
Another favorite is the Lilypad Launcher Bath Toy. They love flipping the frogs off the lilypad. My kids have had a blast with this bath toy. Munchkin toys have made my kids bath much more fun for them. You can check out their website for all their fun and functional products and find them on Facebook as well!

 

Dr.Sears Family Essentials

Dr.Sears Family Essentials

I love great products for babies and kids. Although I technically do not have any babies I have enough pregnant friends that I am always on the lookout for great natural products to recommend. As a mom of 3 I know how important it is to have great products to care for your children’s skin.


Some of the products I love are from Dr.Sears Family Essential line. We received Baby Lotion, Diaper Rash Cream, Baby Wash and Shampoo, Wipes and even Stretch Mark Cream. The first thing I noticed was the products are made with non-irritating, natural ingredients. I have enough things to worry about as a mom, and love that when using their products I don’t have to worry about harmful ingredients. I really loved the Baby Wash and Shampoo. Followed by the lotion after a bath and my kids skin was so soft without being greasy.

I would defiantly recommend Dr. Sears Baby Products to moms and expectant moms. They have may more items on their website and you can check that out here. Be sure to also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
Diaper Cakewalk

Diaper Cakewalk

I had baby showers with all 3 of my kids and always loved sharing in the joy and excitement of a new baby.  And of course all the gifts are great to .  But after my first I just wanted gifts that I could actually use. I totally appreciated all of the gifts I got, but one gift that I most remembered was a diaper cake.  It was loaded with everything a new mom and baby could need and most importantly diapers. . After all we have enough to worry about as new parents.  And after totally falling in love with diaper cakes I could not see myself giving any of my friends that are new mommies anything but a diaper cake.

I currently have a good friend that is going to be a first time mom and really wanted to give her a gift that is practical, beautiful, and thoughtful. After looking online and finding so many options I was so happy to be contacted by Diaper Cakewalk. From there I was sent the most beautiful diaper cake. The Taggie Baby Doll Diaper Cake was loaded with all things a new mom and baby could need. Each of their diaper cakes are adorned with quality products and embellished with ribbon, bows and tons of diapers! They are available in so many themes and styles and even have neutral diaper cakes that are perfect for the mom that does not know what she is having.

Their diaper cakes are more then beautiful, they really are masterpieces that would totally steal the show at any baby shower. I could not think of a gift I would rather get then a diaper cake. Some of you may still be wondering What is a Diaper Cake? From their site:

A diaper cake is a clever, impressive, practical and unique baby shower gift, perfect for every new or expectant mom. It is a tower of individually rolled or wrapped disposable diapers arranged to look like a cake, with lots of useful baby care items decorating the cake. Our diaper cakes make crowd-pleasing baby shower centerpieces – put a 4-tier cake on the gift table and a matching mini diaper cake on each guest table and listen to the ooohs and aaahs.

You can check out all their unique baby shower gifts, and there are some great baby shower ideas on their site too! Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Like them on Facebook.

Beanie Designs Giveaway

Beanie Designs I have been on the lookout for cute and modern hats to keep my beautiful baby’s ears warm and protected this fall and winter.  One of my daughters newest hats is from Beanie Designs. Their website has everything from beanie hats, headbands, flower clips, visor hats, mittens and booties, and stocking caps! If you purchase only organic then they have a section for you. All the hats on this website are handmade. Most of the hats are made by stay at home moms and dads. When you go to their website you have many ways to shop.

Beanie DesignsBeanie DesignsBeanie Designs

On the home page you can choose by gender and age, by style, or by searching. Most of their hats start at $15.00. They do have mesh hats in assorted colors for as low as $6 . We received the Organic Cotton Ear flap hat: pink and brown that is 100% Handmade. I thought my daughter looked hilarious when I first put the hat on her. She didn’t so much love it in the beginning but now she sits in her hat most the day playing with the poms on the ends of the flaps! With it being Organic Cotton it has a stronger more durable hold. We have washed the hat a couple of times in warm water and it did not change the shape or size at all. I am absolutely happy with my hat and the coverage that it will be giving my beautiful baby these chilly seasons coming up! It is easy to fall in love with their products and the hats are the most adorable ones I have ever used. You can have items shipped to you or shipped directly as a gift! They also have Gift Certificates and if you order in the USA then regular shipping is free. Head over to Beanie Designs and see all the cute stuff they have!

{Organically Cute Baby Bib Pack Giveaway}

Moms or Moms to be if you are trying to figure out the perfect bib that lasts and is reasonably priced then look no further…. My daughter Anna and I have been playing with bibs from www.organicallycute.com . All I can say is WOW! These bibs have snaps on them rather than the normal Velcro. They have 2 different size adjustments so they can grow with your baby! My daughter is great at putting things to the test. At 5 months old she decided she was tired of baby food and being fed. She is now 8 months old and eats what we eat and feeds herself.

We have 4 different bibs from Organically Cute . Anna has ate everything from carrots to lasagna in her beautifully bright bibs. I have tried bibs from different companies and realized how easily they slip off or Anna pulls them off. With the snaps she can’t get these off as easy. Now with my daughter eating lasagna and spaghetti and other things that stain you would think geez how can I truly get these stains out?!. I washed them as directed. Machine wash cold and tumble dry low. These bibs hold their color great and the stains were gone with my favorite stain remover.

These bibs are also super absorbent. My daughter has been drooling a lot for the last 4 months and with regular cotton bibs it seems to get soaked and then soak her clothes underneath defeating the whole purpose of a bib. I know right?! Whats the point in even putting a bib on your child to protect their clothes if they don’t even do their job. Well with these completely organic cotton bibs it absorbs much better and keeps the clothes underneath dry.

I’m sure at this point you are probably asking whats the difference between cotton and organic cotton. Well with regular cotton its farmed with insecticides. Some of the worst insecticides. But Organic cotton is grown completely naturally with no additives.

I am sure you are ready to get your baby some of these bibs right? Head on over to their website and you will find some of the cutest modern styles of bibs available for boys and girls! Also right now 5% goes to the charity of your choice. How great is that? Something great for you and your sweet baby but also an easy way to help someone else! You can also log in and check out and get notifications on new products and sales! Be sure to Like their Facebook page while you are here!

{Inglesina Avio Stroller}

I realized very early on the importance of a good stroller. I take mine with me everywhere and have more then one for multiple cars. It is something i never like to be left without. Finding one that does everything i need as well as being safe, stylish and functional can be challenging. In my experience i have found that you get what you pay for.

If i had to give new moms any advice i would say get a good stroller, you will thank yourself! Buy one that you are comfortable with and one that is durable as well as functional. If you can find one with all that and looks great it is even better. I am so lucky to have been given the chance to review the Inglesina Avio Stroller. Everything about this stroller makes me love it.

There are so many great features of the Avio that i will get to but my favorite by far is the one hand opening operation. I cannot count the times i have struggled to get my old stroller open. This stroller saves time and makes it even easier for you to get out with your baby. The Avio fits into small spaces and looks very chic and stylish at the same time. It is complete with a five-point harness for safety and a four-position recline. I love that there is a roomy storage area for my purse, diaper bag or anything else i will need. Forget the grind of your average stroller. The Avio is smooth and really is a great stroller.  Best of all, my child is comfortable! He loves it and that is really important as well. It is available in 6 colors. Right now when you purchasethis stroller you can use code AVIOFAST and get Fast Table Chair for FREE!

Avio is the new generation stroller. The avant-garde design created by clear and light lines, the high performance delivered on different
terrain and the highly desirable compact size make it the stroller par excellance for city life.
Developed explicitly to be fully configurable, Avio is equipped with a wide range of optional extras allowing multi-choice accessorizing to
satisfy specific and particular needs.
Avio consists of:
• Stroller
• Hood + bumper bar
• Storage basket
• Cup holder
• Raincover
• Adapters for carrycot and/or Huggy car seat (NB. the carrycot and the Huggy car seat are optional extras and may be purchased
separately)

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Inglesina and received an Avio stroller to facilitate this review.”

{The Little Looster}

I cannot count the times have seen my little girl struggling on our home potty with her little helpless legs dangling trying to reach the floor. I think as moms we all go through that at some point. Thank goodness Monica from Little Looster has us moms in mind with the design of the Little Looster. It has been designed to fit around your home toilet providing a safe way for your younger ones to use the bathroom.
It fit perfectly snug around my toilet leaving plenty of room for adults without having to move it around. My daughter looks so much more confident and enjoys using it. I really love that she no longer has to hang on to the toilet rim for dear life. It will go well with any decor in your bathroom and is really affordable.

You can purchase this now for 39.99
Here’s a code for $7 off until 8/1/10. MMM68
