Evoz Baby Smart Parenting Monitor Takes Baby Monitors to the Next Level

Technology has transformed the way we monitor our babies, even allowing us in some cases to watch our children from anywhere in the world via smart phone or tablet.  But there is nothing on the market today that offers a host of “connected services” giving parents access to real sleep coaches, collect baby’s sleep habits AND even send cry alerts to your phone until now… and we need your help to get the word out to your community!

Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair is Perfect for Growing Children

Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair is Perfect for Growing Children

* I received the Stokke Tripp Trapp® Chair to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*   There comes a point where your little boy or girl simply outgrows their high chair, but they are still too small to sit in an adult sized chair at the table.  So we buy booster seats and pretty much try anything we can come up with to get them to a comfortable position to get them acquainted … Read entire article »

How to Relieve Teething Pain

How to Relieve Teething Pain

While babies are the ones teething, I think that parents suffer during teething as well. Both of my children started teething early, and it was frustrating to see them in pain and exhausting to wake up numerous times a night to soothe a cranky baby. Teething can throw off your baby’s sleep schedule and eating habits. Some babies will eat more, but others will eat less. Some babies will want to drink or nurse constantly. Others … Read entire article »

Save on MAM Anti-Colic Baby Bottles

Save on MAM Anti-Colic Baby Bottles

MAM Anti-Colic bottles are a favorite of both breastfeeding moms and bottle-feeding moms. One of the main reasons is MAM’s unique “Silk Nipple.” This extra-soft nipple makes the switch between breast and bottle easier than using a traditional (harder) silicone nipple. While I was breastfeeding, I worried about nipple confusion even though I wanted my husband’s help with nighttime feedings. Thankfully, our baby was able to switch easily from bottle to breast using the MAM Anti-Colic bottle. We were … Read entire article »

Breastfeeding may be best for baby, but there’s no denying that it is a major commitment for moms.
