Comfort & Harmony Mombo Nursing Pillow Review

Comfort & Harmony Mombo Nursing Pillow Review

 

IMG_2071

I really liked this pillow; first as a nursing pillow and second as a pillow that I can let my son lie down in and hold a bottle. Even at 9 months old he loves to lie down and drink a bottle at night. The Mombo is perfect for that. It helps hold his arms up so that he can drink his bottle and he actually really likes the vibration.

The only downside is that the vibration sensor is placed right in the middle of the pillow, so when my son moves his head he often times turns it off and on. I like that the cover can be removed and the pillow itself is very thick and provides a lot of comfort to my son while nursing. I liked this pillow more than other brands that are comparable because I could actually use it while nursing in a rocking chair. This pillow is more curved around the waist so it actually fits while I sit in a chair with arms.

 

I received this Comfort & Harmony Mombo nursing pillow product free but these are my own opinions and views.

Our PiyoPiyo Baby and it’s sale time!

 

We love PiyoPiyo!  I think our favorite PiyoPiyo item is the satety weaning spoon. It is so soft and it was great for the first purees that were very liquidy.  Our little man loves the teether rattle (and it comes with a storage case – great for on the go!)

Siliconies Teething Flower Necklace

Thanks to the Facebook I learned about another amazing teething and nursing necklace from Family Bedrock.  I actually won this Flower Siliconies and I absolutely love it!

The Flower Siliconies are for nursing or teething but especially I love them for teething. I get so many compliments especially when I pair it with a black tank top or white summer dress! Baby loves moving from one flower to the next chewing on each of them.  We were at the mall the other day and I was wearing him and the lady at the register called all of the other associates over to look at the necklace. She kept saying, “they never had those when I had kids…”

I wish someone would come up with a manly teething necklace that my hubby would wear…that way baby would stop trying to swipe at my husband’s glasses all the time! Definitely check them out because they are super adorable and baby loves them! 

Windel by Upscale Mom

Thanks to PTPA – we came across this great product called the Windel from Upscale Mom. What’s the Windel you ask? Well, I bet your can’t even tell that the beautiful framed picture of our son is a cabinet, diaper, and wipes dispenser. We keep all our essentials hidden – Burts Bees Baby Bee diaper cream, diapers, wipes, Hylands Teething Tablets, and even nail clippers. There is even a slot to put a box of tissues and diapers for easy access! It’s no wonder why the Windel is a PTPA award winner!

There are so many things that we love about it…First, it’s made in the USA. How great is that?!? Second, it’s designed by a mom…and moms know what other moms want and need!. Last and most importantly, it is super convenient, keeps the nursery organized and uncluttered, best part is that it is all hidden behind my little pumpkin’s picture. It goes perfect with the amazing job my hubby did with our Winnie the Pooh nursery. He painted and design the entire layout and the Windel is a great addition to the room!
If you are looking for the perfect accessory to your nursery, definitely check out the Windel. It will make your little one’s room complete…and tidy!

Philips Sonicare PowerUp Review and Giveaway

I just tried the Sonicare PowerUp before bed earlier this week and I am in love. Not sure if it was the PowerUp but I’ve even been sleeping better! I’m a simple gal…never had an electric toothbrush mainly because it seemed so expensive. I didn’t think I needed to splurge $200+ dollars to clean my teeth every day. I thought with just a little elbow grease and I could save the money and brush myself. But I have no excuse now that Philips came out with the PowerUp!

Image

First, the PowerUp is under $20 and worth every penny!  It is so affordable and I am going out and getting one for the whole family. (I’m thinking Christmas gifts too!) By the way, it is such a bonus that it comes with batteries! Second, it has a 2 minute timer…helps me not overbrush when I’m trying to multi-task and great for the kids so they don’t try to cut their brushing short! Last and most important, it removes 2X more plaque and just moving my tongue across my teeth I could seriously feel the difference. I know my dentist is going to be super excited when I visit him next month (fingers crossed for no cavities and healthy gums) and it’s all thanks to the PowerUp!

As a mom, I’m always multi-tasking and thinking about what I need to do next. This morning I was holding the PowerUp in one hand and with the other hand I was picking up toys and putting things away. How great is that! It is no wonder 3 out of 4 surveyed preferred the PowerUp over their manual toothbrush!  It gets even better, one reader will win their very own PowerUp!

Jellystone Nursing and Teething Jewelry

My latest obsession…nursing necklaces!  I discovered them online and now I can’t get enough…or should I say baby can’t get enough of them.

A few months ago, we started having some breastfeeding challenges. Baby was becoming increasingly distracted while nursing – he would turn away a minute or so after latching, he would start swatting at my face, pulling my top, scratching my neck, trying to play with the nursing cover.  I took to Twitter and thanks to Katy @Stylin_Momma I got some great tips from other moms. She leads a weekly #bfcafe chat on Thursdays and it is great for connecting with other moms and getting breastfeeding support. Don’t get me wrong, my hubby is an amazing support but it is nice to chat with other mommies especially about breastfeeding because let’s be honest…there’s just some things that men don’t fully understand.    

So back to the issue at hand, distracted baby…A few of the mom’s suggested I try nursing in a quiet room. I tried that but he started swat at my face, try to grab my hair or play with the nursing cover.  Katy and a couple of the other moms suggested I try a nursing necklace – they all highly recommended Jellystone Designs. At first, I thought that I could just use my regular jewelry and let him play with that as he nursed.  I’m shaking my head as I typed that last sentence…it didn’t work. He wasn’t that interested and when he did try to reach for it…I was worried that it would hurt his tiny little fingers and I felt like I was being strangled

I have two Jellystone Designs necklaces and can’t get enough of them! I usually nurse in the cradle position and baby loves reaching up with one hand and feeling the pendant while he’s nursing.  I think it is something about the bright colors of the pendant that he was instantly attracted to and it looks great with my outfits. No one can even tell it is for nursing!  I love that these necklaces are 100% BPA free, non-toxic, look like regular jewelry, comes in great colors…and most importantly baby loves them! The yellow one is the jChews cell phone. He loves it because it looks like Daddy’s and he can chomp away on it!
