Review: Amber Teething Necklace

61S0rKxXFzL._SL1376_

I was sent this beautiful amber teething necklace to review. So we have all seen teething items for infants. However we haven’t all seen ones like this. So are you asking why Amber?

41VFBEZD+JL

 

Amber has natural anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties that promote immune boosting, reduction in teething pain and calming your baby without resorting to drugs.

This is raw unpolished amber and it will reduce drooling, fussing and pain while your baby is cutting their teeth. Wondering how it works? Well Baltic Amber naturally contains succinic acid which is a mild pain reliever and anti-flammatory that helps naturally with teething and other pain. Are you wondering if it is safe to allow your baby to gnaw on a necklace or rocks?  Each necklace is Safety knotted with a screw clasp. They are 12.5 in long on average, sized to fit babies and toddlers with length variations due to organic bead shapes and tension in the hand-tied knots. The beads are baroque shaped, measuring 0.2 inches in diameter on average.

These are a Great gift! These necklaces are truly a “must have” for any mother looking for a homeopathic remedy to teething discomfort and come in a cute package that is ideal for gifting.

Review: Baby car mirror

41YCiFlD1fL 71hrhMwhf8L

Every parent knows how important it is to have baby sitting facing backwards, but we also know how frustrating it is not being able to see what our little one is up to. The baby car mirror is just what you need to be safe and get rid of your frustration.

The mirror adjust 360 degrees and is connected to a separate head rest mount that allows for it to move in any angle, so that you are able to get the perfect view of your little one. Its super easy to install. There are adjustable clips on the straps that lock the mirror into safe. It doesnt take any tools to assemble the mirror, and once it is up, it is stable there are no fears of it falling down.

I love how as a bonus I got two back seat sun shades to protect the little ones from the sun, plus a free spray bottle and cloth so that I can keep finger prints, and foot prints clean off the mirror.

This is a must have for any parent of a child! Love it!

Review: Reusable Food Pouches

61B51MUmSjL._SL1056_

I was sent 6, 6oz reusable food pouches to review. These pouches are made in the United states and are BPA, PCV, LEAD and Phthalate free. They have a duel-zipper system that will prevent any leak from occuring. The pouches are tough and will withstand the wrath of any toddler. I find that they are super easy to fill and clean. They have an extra wide zipper opening that makes it easy to pour the food in. They are dishwasher & freezer safe making storage and clean up super easy! Plus they have a writable surface on the back to date and track your pouches for freshness.

These are perfect for babyfood, smoothies, Apple sauce and any other purees that you can think of! Also these are a God send for any parent that is on the go, a quick easy treat to grab and hand to your little one.

These sell on Amazon for $13.99. I think these are a steal compared to what you are going to buy for the prefilled ones in the store, and much healthier. What a great way to know exactly what you are feeding your little one plus they are earth friendly!

Review: Baby Comfy Deluxe Safety Clipper

61Cl308pUAL._SL1345_

  • PATENTED SINGLE-BLADE TECHNOLOGY won’t cut baby’s skin; This is the first nail clipper designed to prevent baby’s skin from getting cut; Unique nail clipper design. A reinvention of the baby nail clipper
  • THE BOTTOM SMOOTH LEDGE holds baby’s fingertip skin safely back so only the nail gets cut, not the skin
  • PROTECTS FROM CUTTING TOO CLOSELY TO THE SENSITIVE NAIL BED; The bottom ledge extends out slightly so you can’t cut too closely to the sensitive nail bed; Trim Tearlessly
  • LARGER THAN STANDARD CLIPPERS BY DESIGN so it’s easier to hold and operate
  • DURABLE SMOOTH BOTTOM LEDGE lasts for thousands of cuts

So I love these. I cant tell you how much I dread cutting my sons nails because it never fails, he ends up bleeding. However these are awesome because the single blade technology keeps that from happening! I love how big and chunky it is making it easier to hold.
