Wee Squeak Review & Giveaway

Modeling her Turquoise Girls Sandal White Daisy Wee Squeaks

weesqueak

Wee Squeak shoes are fun, functional, adorable, and incredibly cute! They offers a very vast selection of shoes for both boys and girls in variety of styles and colors, including Maryjane, Sneakers, and Sandals.

About Squeak Shoes (from their site):

“Wee Squeak shoes are designed for children and parents alike. The shoes actually make a fun squeak sound as the child walks. A cushion in the heal squeezes air through a tiny nozzle making the squeak sound. In order for the shoe to squeak a child must walk heal to toe. This encourages crawlers to begin walking and toddlers and young children to walk properly and not up on their toes.

Not only is the shoe functional and fun for children, but parents love the safety feature of knowing where their child is at all times. For those occasions when the shoe needs to be silent, the squeaker can be removed by an adult.These fun little shoes help crawlers walk and walkers run.”

Giving Back:

This is a great company as they are giving back to those around them!  I learned that a percentage of their sells goes to Half the Sky and to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Also to mention they donated thousands of shoes to  Buckner Orphan Care International and to the Longview Metro Church, Longview Texas for their mission programs. What a blessing to be giving back!

My thoughts:

I pleased to let you know that out of this companies generosity, my daughter and I were able to review a pair of Turquoise White Daisy Girls Sandals! My daughter loves her shoes, she was walking all over the place with a huge grin on her face as she found that she could make a fun squeaking sound. Her giggles were so cute…never before has a shoe made her so happy!

These shoes are super flexible and made very well from tough and durable leather. My daughter is an excellent walker and she’s almost a runner. With Wee Squeaks I can rest at peace knowing she’s wearing a comfortable pair of shoes with good rubber grips on the bottom of them to prevent her from taking a spill on not so steady surfaces.

Did I mention with the squeaking I won’t ever lose my daughter? It’s true as my daughter is so fast. She’s always sneaking off to explore something new. Secretly she has no idea that mommy loves letting her wear these so she won’t get away to far. I can see myself easily getting another pair. This won’t be a problem either as many Wee Squeak’s styled shoes go all the way up to size 12!

Otter Blotters AI2 Diaper Review

_wsb_572x572_web-promo-blueai2-4-6-09smallfile1
I am a Mom whom cloth diapers my baby using All-In-Ones. The current diapers I’ve been using seem to mostly do the job. Although, I’ve had more problems with them than I necessarily would like.  First they leak  not just at night time but during the day, second they sometimes chafe my daughters legs, third my daughter can easily get them off leaving her to run around butt stark naked, and number 4 they take near as forever to dry! Yes they are cute and fashionable but I’m looking for a diaper that can relieve the chaffing, not leak, make it near impossible for my tike to get off, and one that doesn’t take forever to dry…looking cute would just be an added bonus.

I was given the opportunity to review just recently an “All In Two” diaper from the company Otter Blotters. This diaper has exceeded all expectations that I had and because of this I’m a huge fan.

Orgins: (a little history)

Otter Blotter was created and founded by a mom just like you and me! She was fed up with the cloth diapers that were out there that would scratch her daughters belly and thighs.  Her daughter like mine enjoyed being naked too, so a solution was in order. Being a big fan of hook and loop diapers, she got her sewing machine out and got to work. Thus Otter Blotters was created.

My thoughts:

100_8431

You can see from the SMILE on my daughter's face that she loves her Otter Blotter AI2 cloth diaper!

Like I mentioned before, Debby sent me a “All In Two” diaper to review.  I can not say enough about this diaper.  These diapers are cute as the come in a variety of different colors and patterns! Minky Fabric was used also in making each diaper feel incredibly soft! I love how this diaper closes! I no longer have a streaker in my household! How it works is that a velcro closure actually stays hidden inside a patent pending lock-it pocket! Once the Velcro tabs are hooked the pocket then closes over the tabs keeping my little one from getting places where she shouldn’t be poking around at or exposing to anyone else. No leaks! The 10 layer soaker pad is awesome! It snaps in and out which makes cleaning and washing so much easier and because it snaps in and out, the cover will last longer…not to mention that the cover can used with fitteds and prefolds instead of the inserts. These diapers are completely economical!

The Pros:
*Patent-pending Lock-it PocketTM ensures a snug hook and loop fit with no tummy or leg chafing and prevents babies from taking off their own diapers
*No exposed hook tape to snag in the wash
*Patent-pending leak-resistant seams mean dry clothes and bedding, even when the diaper is soaked
*Ultrasuede pull tabs are as easy as disposables to fasten leg gussets keep messes in polyurethane laminated (PUL) fabric means messes don’t stick to the diaper
*Lightweight, trim, and comfortable fit
*Soft, beautiful minky “otter fur” that comes in bright colors and prints
*10-layer soaker pad with 4 layers microfiber terry, 2 layers birdseye cotton and 2 layers of ZorbTM in wet zone, backed with Killington flannel and lined with soft, no-pill, stay-dry microfleece or silky, non-synthetic bamboo velour
*Unique pad design promotes thorough cleaning and fast drying
*All-in-One (sewn-in pad) or All-in-Two (snap-in pad) design–so no folding, stuffing or removing inserts

Ringley Natural Teething Toy Review

100_8382leftAs a mommy, I’m always on the look out for products that are all natural and made without harmful chemicals and dyes. I found a new one wanted to shed some light on it.

So, have you heard about the RiNGLEY? It’s  natural organic teething toy that combines untreated Canadian Maple and 100% organic cotton terrycloth.

There are two different types, the straight, which is the one I was sent and the knotted which has 2 large knots in the cloth.  The difference between the two is really personal preference.  I would keep in mind also that younger babies may have trouble fitting the two large knots into their mouth from the two choices.

I was graciously  given one to review for my 11 month old daughter.  Currently, my daughter has three teeth coming in. Yes, it’s been a bit of nightmare with her putting everything in her mouth. I’m going to admit that the TV remote looked more appealing to her than the Ringley at first. I had an idea and dampened the Ringley. I put it in the freezer for  a few hours,  and then the TV remote was a thing of the past. Take note that I typically freeze damp wash cloths for her to chew on to relieve the pain associated with teething. Eventually she would figure out how to rip strings out of them and tear the cloths up but with the Ringley, I’ve not had that happen.

I really have enjoyed reviewing this product and will be recommending it to everyone I know!
