The Baby Bistro Box Review

bbbox_2ndbanner

I recently was given the opportunity to review a wonderful company called Baby Bistro. Without a doubt, they have made me more confident in feeding my child as parent.

I remember when my daughter was able to start eating solids. I asked my pediatrician about what she should be eating and all she did was give me a not informative enough pamphlet handout and tell me about how easy it was to pick out foods in the baby food aisle of my grocery store. Well, this was okay advice but I was planning on making my own baby food and I needed a little bit more help.

I searched all over the internet to learn what my child should be eating when and how much I should be giving her.  bbb_menu_newEveryplace was different and lacking the information that I needed. Due to this, I have a huge disorganized binder full of feeding information and I never am able to find what I need at the right time.

Christine the founder of Baby Bistro Brands is a genius! When her sister had a baby, she also like me found that there was not just one single place to get all of her questions about nutrition for her child answered. Thus the  Baby Bistro Brand was created with the help of her master’s degree in nutrition and also with her four generations of knowledge. She was able to create products to advise those on feeding babies and toddlers.

Let me tell you a little bit about the Baby Bistro Box (0-12 months). It includes safety rules, shopping tips, numerous recipes, and prenatal suggestions. The information is arranged in a convenient recipe card format which allows you to find the information you want, when you need it! I found that questions I’ve had about allergies and foods to avoid giving my child have all been answered for me in this box. This would have been really helpful to me months and months ago!

I took the Shopping Simplicity cards in the box with me to the grocery store last week and it made shopping for my daughter so much easier! I turned from a scatter brained mommy to a more level headed confident mom, which is a great feeling! It has changed the way I feed my child and has made my life so much easier! This box has saved me a lot of time and money!

The Baby Bistro Box would be a great baby Shower gift for a new mom. Remember, it also has prenatal information for new moms! I was not disappointed in this box in the least and I guarantee you won’t be either.toddler_box

They also have a toddler bistro box for ages 1-3. This one is on my list to get next since my daughter will be turning one in only three more months!

Buy It: The Baby Bistro Box and the Toddler Bistro Box cost $27.95 each and can be purchased online at Baby Bistro Brands. They are also available at Whole Foods Markets and a variety of other stores nationwide.

Mini Toy Wrangler Review

minitoywrangler

I’ m going to share some love about the Luvloo Toy Wrangler! My daughter is in that stage where she thinks it’s fun to drop her toys, cups, or whatever and have me pick them up! This can get old after awhile, especially when I am out with friends at a restaurant and I can’t get  to her things under the table without making everyone move! Any Mom out there knows how much of a hassle this can be and that’s why Kristy, the founder of Luvloo came up with the Toy Wrangler!

I tested these out when I went grocery shopping! My mind was relieved when I knew my daughter wouldn’t lose or drop her toys on the dirty floor below. I shopped with peace of mind and was relieved to know my daughter would be more distracted by the toy wrangler and whatever I had attached  to it  rather than with nibbling on the shopping cart!

The Toy Wrangler has the great little straps, they Velcro strap to strap together to whatever you’d like to fasten it to whether it be a shopping cart, high chair, stroller, baby carrier, or car seat! On the other end of the wrangler are round circle links, you can use these links to attach your child’s favorite toy, a bottle, a sippy cup,  or just leave them be because my daughter just like’s nibbling on those too since she’s been teething a lot. They are easy to keep clean too, just throw them in the wash!

I wish I had these a lot sooner! I think these would make super great baby shower gifts too! I like clothes for baby shower gifts just as much as the next mommy, but I also like practical really useful gifts like these!

Baby Banz Review

100_70401
I am so excited that I was given the opportunity to review Baby Banz! Basically, Baby Banz Inc is a company that offers a complete line of sun protection products to keep both babies and kids protected from head to toe.

I couldn’t have received these sunglasses for my daughter at a better time. I had just swapped out her old car seat with the sun shade with a new one with out a shade. She loved her new car seat but would get quite cranky because when coming back home from our outings, the sun would be directly in her face! Baby Banz was a real help to me as the sunglasses protected my daughter’s eyes from the sun’s harsh rays with its 100% uv protection. They saved me a ride home without a cranky baby!

A few things I like about these glasses are that they fasten with adjustable Velcro around my child’s head so there’s no issue with falling off and I don’t have to worry about my little one pinching her fingers. 100_72041

I love my daughters Pink Diva Camo Baby Banz and from my photos, you can see that my little one loves them too!

There is a limited warranty good for 6 months if they break!

For an added bonus all the frames are BPA and Phthalate free! That way your little one is safe if they start to nibble on them because we just know that’s going to happen.

My daughter can wear her Baby Banz sunglasses up until she is two, then she can graduate to the next sizes which are offered all the way up to age 10! I know it’s going to be hard for me to pick out her next pair because they come in a huge variety of colors!


Some specs from Baby Banz Sunglasses:
•Lenses 100% UVA/ UVB protection
•Durable polycarbonate

•Ophthalmic quality; capable of being replaced with prescription lenses
•Strap: Neoprene elastic band matches chosen color of sunglasses
•Allows for flexibility, breath ability, and comfort

•Side adjustable Velcro® allows for years of wear as the child grows
•Sporty, sleek design

I’m recommending these to anyone who wants to keep their kid safe whether you are at the park, beach, ski slope, or just in the backseat of your car.

Cover Plug Review

untitled4-390x275
Since my little one has been roaming about, she is interested in everything and I do mean everything. If there’s a piece of fuzz on the floor she puts it in her mouth,  if there’s a box sitting on the floor…she consumes extra fiber, and if there is a outlet on the wall…which there is, she plays with it and tries to figure out how to get the child safety caps out.  I was pretty worried since she is so strong and I keep thinking very soon she will get those out and either choke on them or who knows what else…this all but drives me batty on a regular basis.

Now the answer to every mothers prayer is CoverPlug! They were really thinking of my child’s safety when it was thought up! It was invited  to replace those unsightly and dangerous to little ones socket plug ins.  I loved how easy these are  to install  just pressing it into  place over your wall plug in outlet! I tried these out as soon as I received them and guess what, my daughter doesn’t even notice the outlet anymore.  She happily plays with her toys and passes the wall outlet by every time! Out of sight and out of mind, I can totally agree with them on that!

If you are needing to make these more inauspicious because maybe you had a red wall, no problem you can easily paint them the same color as your wall.  These are easy are quite secure enough so your children can’t remove them but you can with ease.

If you are like me and a worried about the safety of your child I would recommend you check out CoverPlug today.

Wett Giggles Review

wettgiggles

I recently was given the opportunity to review  Wett Giggles Soap! Inspired by a mom who wanted to encourage her six year old the importance of good hygiene and keeping his nails clean.

This  handmade glycerin soap is a wonderful treat for your little ones, let me tell you! This isn’t just your plain ole’ regular

hamletwettg

bar of soap, it’s topped with a toy as you can see in the picture above and it has a fingernail brush inside the soap! How neat is that? The soap smells just divine as it comes in several scents, Hamlet the little frog above scent is watermelon and some of the other scents vary from banana to blackberry. If you were wondering, each of the Wett Giggles all have fun names inspired by Shakespearean characters, due to the fact the creator loves Shakespearean plays.

I’m sure kids will love this product, I showed little Hamlet to my daughter and of course she wanted to eat it like most 8 1/2 month old would want to do. I’m going to probably purchase some of the other fun character soaps in the future since I know using these will be a fun way to encourage your child to remember to wash  and keep their nails clean too. Wett Giggles is available for purchase at www.wettgiggles.com

Me4Kidz Diaper Bag Buddy Review

diaper-buddy-lg

My daughter’s diaper bag has a new buddy! How silly does that sound… okay yes, I admit just a wee bit silly.   Let me tell you about this wonderful  diaper bag buddy. In my opinion, this a must have for any parent, grandparent, or sitter. This kit created by Me4Kidz made solely in the USA is a perfect baby basics kit for those of us on the go.  I will let you know that before this kit lots of my daughters things got shifted around in my bag and sometimes never made it back into the bag (as I am constantly swapping from purse to diaper bag on a regular basis).  This kit is great if you are leaving your kid with a sitter or whomever and then your child may need a bath…the shampoo and body wash is there, say God forbid your child gets to much sun and gets a sunburn… you can pull out the diaper bag buddy and use the Natural Aloe Vera Gel Packs! If you are on a trip away from home and your child is coming down with a fever, you can pull out the one time use thermometer and check your child’s temperature!

This kit includes the following organic and natural products :

1- Organic Diaper Rash Cream
2- Natural Aloe Vera Gel Packs
1- Organic Face & Body Moisturizer
5- Latex Free Jr. Bandages
1- One Time Use Thermometer
1-Organic Shampoo & Body Wash
3- Natural Tush Wipes
1- Reusable 100% Recycled, Lead Free Carry Case

This kit really does have it covered  with tons of great products ! I love being prepared and with a premade kit like this it just makes being a parent that much easier because I know sometimes we all have one of those days!

Me4kidz, LLC is a family-owned & operated business.  Its core focus is designing functional and modern first-aid kits that prompt and inspire parents and caregivers world-wide to be prepared when it comes to every day childhood injuries. This family of four is driven by their faith in the Lord
and is completely committed to their business in all aspects.

Another wonderful side note is that Me4kidz has all of their products assembled by the disabled.  10% of each purchase gives back to the disabled community!

I wanted to let you know that Me4Kidz did
not just limit their products to babies but they have products for
older children as well as for your four legged friends… yes, you
heard me right they were even thinking about Rover’s well being of
which I think is great.
