Smart Mom Jewelry

teethingbling
If you’re a mom like me, I’m sure you may miss wearing your jewelry.  I like to accessorize when wearing certain outfits and having a little one made that hard because whatever necklace or bracelet I wore went straight to her mouth. First, I didn’t want her to get hurt or choke on whatever I was wearing, second I didn’t want teeth marks all over my pieces, and third I didn’t want to stop accessorizing. What was I to do? I pretty much gave up wearing anything, that is until discovered Smart Mom Jewelery.

The Smart Mom Jewelry line is great! They have a variety of styles and colors to choose from. I like how  the styles mimic  those ever popular stone circle pendants. I had lots of people appalled at me at first because that thought I was letting my daughter chew on stone. They were relieved after I explained to them what my child was chewing on and thought the idea of it was ingenious! I like these so much that I  wear them even when I don’t have my daughter with me and was even complimented on them. I was quite amused and pleased that people  couldn’t tell the difference!

reddonut2Smart Mom Jewelry also has pretty cute heart pendants, bangle bracelets, and even key chains! These pieces are safe for your baby or toddler to teeth and tug o. All pieces are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, lead free, and even dishwasher friendly. All the pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature. Though you should never leave your child alone with a pendant due to safety reasons.

This jewelry has made me happy again were I can accessorize and not worry about the safety of my child. I’m a baby wearing mom so my daughter is usually always pretty close to me. These make my daughter pretty happy too because she does not take to a pacifier so when she’s really teething she had nothing to chew on while I was carrying her around.  Smart Mom jewelery has both this mom and daughter very happy!

I would have to say that the hardest part about purchasing this jewelry is picking it out due to the gorgeous variety! Know also that a percentage of all retail sales goes to CureSearch and Dress for Success, two  great charitable organizations.

logoclassykids

Classy Kid Changing Table Cover

Now let me introduce you to the products that I received to review! I received Keep Me Color Place mats, Keep Me Healthy Potty Protectors, Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs, Keep Me Clean Changing Table Covers, and Keep Me Tidy Diaper Sacks.

I was able just recently to use the Keep Me Clean Changing Table Covers. You have no idea how many times that I go out in public and there is no diaper changing table cover for me to change my daughter on. I’m not a germaphobic but  I really don’t trust how clean any public bathroom is! So, I am glad that I had these to layout on the table to change my daughter! I received such peace of mind using this product knowing that it also a Earth friendly product where as it’s biodegradable and disposable!    At, 18″ wide x 22″ long it fits perfectly on all commercial changing table. It also is  soft, water proof coated cotton so it prevents little leaks from getting anywhere while you change your little one! I no longer have to cover the area with paper hand towels, thanks to Classy Kids!

Next I’ll tell you about the 75pc.  Keep Me Tidy Diaper Sacks! These smell great, a lot better than that stinky diaper that you’ll be trying to get rid of. I don’t know how many times I am out at friends houses and I worry about what happens if my daughter has a real smelly blow out! I don’t want to stink up my friends houses with stinky poop filled diapers. Voila these little sacks fit easily into my diaper bag and are there on the ready for me! These are great to use when I’m out and about and also in my own home. They really save the cost of lining my diaper pail, and they are biodegradable…are we seeing a trend?

Then there is the Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs! These are nice to have on the ready when I am eating out. I simply throw one or two in my diaper bag and we are good to go. I don’t have to worry about wiping a bib down before we leave, I can just simply remove it and throw it in the trash.  They even have a little catcher in the front of the bib!

The other products I’ve received, I have not put to the test yet but I’m sure I’m really going to be fond of them all.  My favorite thing about these products is that they are green, earth friendly, breaks down in weeks, not decades! This company is doing it’s best to keep our convenience and the world around us at heart by keeping their products 100% biodegradable. Thanks Classy Kids!

PakNaks Review

lamp
PakNaks are so cool, I even as a mommy loves them! I was going back and forth trying to figure out what to put mine on.

Let me tell you a little bit about PakNaks. Basically, they are super cute soft rubbery 3-d decorations for kids (or adults like me). They can be put on backpacks, lunch bags, headbands, computer bags, household items, and whatever else you would want to put them on! . They are very easy to attach, just peel and stick! You can change out your PakNaks to for a new look as they are attached with fuzzy coins.

I found it neat that “PakNak is a mom-owned business based in Portland, Oregon. That’s pretty much right down the street from me! They set out to create age appropriate designs for school-aged children and I would say they’ve done the job. They are even great for those of you who are like me and always thinking green being made from recycled plastic.
headbands

I received Isaac the turtle and Powder the flower to review. My husband has a website called the Space Turtle so naturally he loves the turtle and of course I love the flower! What’s neat about the PakNaks is that they each have some information about themselves from home, favorite Food, best friend, and favorite activity. This makes it fun for your kids boy or girl alike to collect them.

So if you are looking for something fun and decorative for your kids, grand kids, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, or yourself, why not check out PakNacks.

I’ll be having a a PaNak giveaway this Friday so be sure to come by and enter to win your very own. They’ll be 4 winners with a chance to win 3 PakNaks each!

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.
