10 Books My Toddler Loves #FridayFrivolity

In honor of World Book Day and Dr. Seuss, this Friday Frivolity we’re talking books, books and more books. I love to read. At 25 I still own every book that’s ever been given to me. I’m talking hand me down baby books from when my mom was a kid that I can now share with my daughter. We have a lot of books at our house. You could understand my overwhelming pride and happiness when my little one started to love books. We’re now at the point that reaching “the end” causes actual tears in my 15 month old. She hates when the books are over.

Today I’ll be sharing with you ten books my toddler loves. Continue reading

BabySmile Nasal Aspirator Review and Giveaway

It’s that time of year again where everyone is sick. Cold and flu are going around and our littles are especially prone to picking up bugs. One of the only ways to help babies through a cold is with nasal aspiration. They don’t know how to blow their noses yet so we have to help.

Nasal health is so important to maintain for your babies. Not only does it keep them more comfortable to have less mucus while fighting colds and infections but it can actually help prevent infections as well. Having clear passages makes it easier for babies to eat and drink. It makes sleep easier as well, which is a plus for moms and babies.

Moms benefit too by having a less fussy baby, getting more sleep and avoiding troubling doctors visits. It’s an all around positive to keep baby’s passages clear. Continue reading

VTech Light-Up Baby Touch Tablet Toy Review

Tablets are huge for kids. It seems like since Sunshine was born she’s been interested in every screen she can find and it didn’t take long for her to notice my personal tablet. I spent a ton of time researching various baby tablets and came up so empty. There are many for toddlers and bigger kids but few for babies under 2 years. I had almost given up my search for the perfect baby tablet when walking through a department store I saw an adorable little girl, maybe a year old, with a little pink tablet. She dropped it on the floor with a slam and nothing bad happened. Her mom picked it up and gave it back to her as it sang as if it hadn’t been dropped at all. I asked her mother what it was and she said the VTech Baby Tablet. We got it immediately.

The Teething Struggle

Oh, teething! Every parent’s worst nightmare. In recent weeks it’s been our biggest struggle. My Moo started getting her teething early at around 3 months and the pains have come in waves since then. We can go a solid week straight with no issues but then the crankiness kicks in. She starts waking up during naps and she screams. She screams and screams and holds the side of her face. It’s really heartbreaking. Unfortunately, maybe because she did start on the early side, most of the advice I’ve read or been given hasn’t helped at all. Here’s three remedies that didn’t work and three that did.

Fisher Price 3 in 1 Projection Soother Review

Somewhere along our sleep journey Sunshine got into the habit of sleeping only with the light on. The first year is just about surviving. Seasoned moms will quickly remind you not to worry about making bad habits and focus on staying as rested as possible. Well, having gone through the clingy newborn stage where she would only fall asleep on my chest, this lights business isn’t so big a deal. Still, I thought now was a good as time as ever to gingerly get her more comfortable in the dark. Thus came the Fisher Price 3 in 1 Projector.
