The Best Chemical Free Disposable Diaper is Seventh Generation, Hands Down! #FreeYourBaby #MC

Seventh-Generation-Diaper

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation. I received samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating. When our now two and a half year old daughter was a baby she developed a skin sensitivity to most diapers. It was rough finding diapers that wouldn't affect her and cause her to break out in a serious rash. I felt so bad for her as she cried through almost all diaper … [Read more...]

Create a Safe Sleep Environment with the HALO Bassinest Swivel

Halo Bassinest

*Sponsored Content*All Opinions are 100% My Own and Not influenced in any way* Are you a mama curious about co-sleeping? Did you co-sleep with you last little one? I have to admit it would be so easy to fall asleep with baby in bed with me but I've been paranoid of her falling off the bed or of hubby rolling over not knowing she was there so we've refrained from doing so. I really wanted a co-sleeper with Annie but we already had a bassinet, and … [Read more...]

Depend Underwear Bladd Leakage #underwareness #dropyourpants

Thanks to Depend for sponsoring today's discussion. A few years ago a friend of mine was pregnant. It was her first pregnancy and she called me about every little thing that happened. She was so thrown off by some of the surprises we women deal with when pregnant. One of those things was bladder leakage. She didn't understand why she had such an issue with leakage anytime she sneezed, couched, or laughed. I, too, have been through this issue on … [Read more...]

It’s Time for a Wienervention – Applegate Hot Dogs to the Rescue!

Although my husband is a big, big hot dog lover in the past I would rarely eat hot dogs. They just seemed so unhealthy and the ingredient list was a definite turn off.

We have a very short list of things they will eat and with hot dogs making that list it was definitely time for a wienervention in our home! Healthier hot … [Read more...]

My Pictures are Safe with the Wireless Flash Drive from SanDisk

Wireless Flash Drive

I told my husband for months upon months that I needed some quick and easy way to get all of my pictures off of my iPhone for safe keeping. I literally had over 1500 pictures on my phone.

I had pictures on my phone from the past nearly 2 years of my kids. Well, my prayers were answered when I was recently sent a … [Read more...]

Night Time Feedings with AVENT

Things have been pretty crazy busy since Annie was born. I can tell you it's been amazing, but I can also tell you adjusting to three little ones has been more than I thought it would be.
