HappyBaby Review & Giveaway

FacebookTwitterPinterestAmazon Wish ListShare


What to feed my children? That is the question that goes through my mind at least five times a day! I now make fresh, organic baby food for Siena, but she’s getting older and sometimes she needs real, solid food. The weeks that are super crazy, I do not get around to making her food and I need another healthy option to fall back on. Yes, you heard it here first, this mama is far from perfect and some weeks my ducks are far from being in a row! Which is why I’m so happy that I found HappyBaby!

HappyBaby is committed to making baby food that is as healthy and delicious as homemade food with the right amount of nutrients needed for optimal growth and development. HappyBaby offers frozen, organic meals with over 15 flavors,including, meat, vegetables, grains and fruit. HappyBaby meals come pre packaged in frozen cubes. So all you have to do is pop one out, heat it for a few seconds and dinner is served! The best part: HappyBaby comes in 1 oz cubes, so you can mix and match to make the perfect meal and not waste! You can choose from simple purees (6+ mons.), smooth combos (7+ mons.), or sorta chunky (9+ mons.).

But that’s not all HappyBaby makes! They offer a complete line of baby and toddler foods including the following:

HappyBellies: organic baby cereal, including, brown rice, multi-grain and oatmeal. Fortified with Vitamin A, Happy Bellies offers cereals with DHA and probiotics.

HappyBaby Puffs: Organic puff snacks in a combination of flavors, including, banana, apple and green puffs.

HappyBites: Made for toddlers and loaded with hidden veggies, this frozen, organic line includes, salmon stix with white bear sauce, veggie tots with orange cheetah sauce, fish bites with green roo sauce, mac & cheese with red monkey sauce, chicken bites and Siena’s favorite, breakfast pockets.

What HappyBaby doesn’t include:
The HappyBaby line of organic foods are allergen friendly, and do not include nuts, soy, dairy, sugar, or wheat. HappyBaby is made with 100% natural ingredients and does not use pesticides, chemical fertilizers or genetic modification.

HappyBaby is also giving back:
For every package you buy, you and HAPPYBABY partner with Project Peanut Butter to feed malnourished children in Malawi. Just one more incentive to choose HappyBaby.

HappyBaby offers convenient, nutritious and great tasting baby and toddler foods for parents who just can’t do it all! The big question: Does it taste great? Yes, yes and yes! Siena has tried just about every item in the HappyBaby line and she loves, loves, loves it! To be quite honest with you, I was sure she was not going to want anything to do with the salmon sticks! Boy, was I wrong. The Salmon sticks are one of her favorite foods. They conveniently fit in our freezer and I can take them out at my leisure. Thank You HappyBaby for making my job a little bit easier!

You can purchase HappyBaby online at The HappyFamily shop or at independent natural foods markets. HappyBaby retailers include, Target, BabiesRus, WholeFoods and many others. You can view their complete list of retailers by clicking here.

Child To Cherish Review & Giveaway


When our first daughter was born, we received the most unique gift…A Block To Grow On by Child To Cherish. A Block To Grow On is a porcelain cube that you can record your child’s weight and length on from 0-12 months. A Block To Grow On also has spaces to record the date of your babies first smile, first tooth, first word and first steps. When my second daughter was born, we purchased another one and it was so wonderful to compare the differences between the two. Siena was consistently 4 pounds lighter than her sister every month, although we would not have known that without our Block To Grow On. We keep them on display in their room and they are a treasure that they will be able to take with them when they leave us someday (but I refuse to let that thought enter my mind for at least another 50 years). Don’t tell them, but I’m going to hold them captive forever ;)

Although I cannot really hold them captive, I can at least hold their memories with our Block To Grow On thanks to Child To Cherish. Designed by Patrice Lowe, Child to Cherish has the finest offering of unique, yet functional children’s keepsakes and gifts in the industry. Each item in the collection is developed with a single focus in mind, to capture those precious moments in time to preserve the innocence of a child. Child To Cherish makes many children’s keepsakes gifts, including, Hand Print Kits, wall letters, banks, holiday items and so much more.

Our little ones grow up so fast and we have to capture those moments we cherish so much, because, trust me when I say, You will forget! I thought I would remember every little detail of Milla’s baby days, until I had my second. My memory just plain failed me in many areas! One of the many memories I forgot was how tiny they were when we brought them home! I forgot how little their fingers and toes used to be and unless you capture that moment when it’s there, it will be gone forever.

A Child To Cherish sent us a Hand Print Tower of Time Kit to check out and I’m so glad they did. The Hand Print Tower of Time comes with five canisters to record your little ones hands for the first five years. They stack one on top of the other and make the most beautiful display that you can place anywhere in your home. With your little ones hand imprinted in the Hand Print Tower of Time, your sure not to forget how little those hands used to be!

You can purchase the Hand Print Tower Of Time, The Block To Grow On and many other memory keepers at http://www.childtocherish.com/ and they are offering you 10% off using code: dm10. A Child To Cherish has an array of beautiful gifts for any and every occasion and I would absolutely consider giving one of their children’s keepsakes as a baby shower gift.

Win it!

A Child To Cherish is offering one of my lucky readers A Block To Grow On! Just visit http://www.childtocherish.com/ and tell me one other item they have on their website that I did not mention in this post.

Hotslings Review & Giveaway


If you are a regular reader of mine, you know how much I adore wearing my baby! My Lil’ Pea is a cranky little thing and although I had originally planned to attachment parent her, she came out screaming FOR attachment parenting. It is a rare occasion that I am able to put her down. I’m not kidding, she was the loudest child in the hospital by far and the nurses were looking at me like they new what I was in for! I personally, love holding my baby close to me and would rather have her near me, than not.

Thanks to Hotslings I can carry my Lil’ Pea while keeping my fashion sense, not that there is much left! Hotslings Baby Slings are pouch style carriers that allow you to carry and bond with your baby in style. With 30 different designs, including, every day styles, organic, reversible and designer options, there is a Hotslings baby carrier for everyone! And of course let’s not forget about dad! Yes, Hotslings even has choices for daddy to wear baby while keeping his fashion sense!

With Hotslings Baby Slings, you have 3 carry options: cradle carry, front carry and hip carry. All Hotslings Baby Slings come with an instructional DVD so that you can get it right from the start. Hotslings Baby Slings are thin and compact, so you can just throw them in your diaper bag and have them when you need them. They are stylish, comfortable, easy to use and are machine washable! Hooray for easy clean up!

What do we love about Hotslings?
We love how comfortable the Hotslings Baby Sling is to wear! We choose to use our Hotslings Baby Sling in the hip carry position and it allows us a quick, easy and comfortable option for carrying our Lil’ Pea and she loves it too! We love that hotslings carries the largest choice of designs I have seen to date. You may have a hard time picking just one! We also love that hotslings sizing seems to be spot on. Hotslings are parent sized slings, so all you need to do is find your size on their sizing chart and you should have no problems with fit.

What we don’t love about Hotslings?
I have absolutely nothing to report here……We truly cannot find one aspect of this baby sling that we don’t like!

Glamourmom Review & Giveaway


Have you been introduced to Glamourmom yet? Glamourmom is a Bra, a tank and an undershirt for nursing moms! That’s right, you get everything all wrapped up in one stylish package and it began with a mom! Two months after having her son, the mom behind Glamourmom was desperately trying to find a nursing top that she could wear under her pre-pregnancy shirts as her shaped returned. She also needed a top that offered full support and what she found is that it just didn’t exist. So Glamourmom was born and mom’s around the world are saying “Thank You” to this creative mama!

Glamourmom nursing tanks are made of a thick cotton/spandex mix that sucks in that post-pregnancy pooch! Glamourmom’s nursing tanks feature:

-Discreet clasps for one handed access
-Adjustable shoulder straps
-An internal panel that enhances breast support
-A light mesh lining that holds nursing pads in place and enhances overall support
-Hidden elastic shelf that enhances support
-Flaps that open for easy access
-Environmentally conscious cotton

Glamourmom offers two options in tops:

Nursing Bra Top – designed to be worn underneath and is a more bra-like version of the tank to provide even more breast support. We made the bra straps wider and used a smooth elastic instead of the same fabric as the tank. These straps can be adjusted easily on-the-fly and have traditional bra hook closures that are easy to open with one hand

Nursing Bra Tank – the sexy, spaghetti-style straps are made of the same fabric as the tank. No one but you will know that there is a built-in nursing bra underneath, so you can wear the tank “as is” without any layering. The clasps sit flush to the fabric to “blend in” with the straps as well.

You will also find that Glamourmom tanks and tops also come in a longer option, which I love, because I like to layer clothing! Glamourmom tanks can also be purchased with laced edging, giving you a little more style!

What do we love about Glamourmom?
We love the material! The material allows for plenty of support, not only in the breast area, but in the tummy area. And as you mama’s know, we really need that tummy support post-partum. We love that Glamourmom offers two options for clasps. Meaning you can pick the clasp that you are used to or based upon whether your wearing it as an undershirt or a fashion statement! We love that the mesh lining keeps breast pads in place, because it can be so frustrating when you sport a leak you are unaware of while walking through a store! Come on Mama’s, you know what I’m talking about here!

If your breastfeeding you won’t want to miss out on Glamourmom tanks. They are convenient, functional and stylish. You can purchase Glamourmom items online at Glamourmom.com! You’ll also find Nursing Pj’s, dresses, nursing bags and swimsuits! Stop by and check out their sale section and save up to 33%!

Win it! Glamourmom is offering one of my lucky readers a Glamourmom Logo tank in winners choice of color and size! Just visit Glamourmom.com and tell me what item you love the most!
