How Do I Know My Baby Is Safe?


Congrats to Ashley Bree Perez *Product received by my friend. Opinions are my friends. This post includes my affiliate links. I am sure, as a parent, we question not only ourselves, but others, A LOT, about our baby's safety. I am a worrier and tend to always think of the worst case scenarios, so yes, I am what some would call a 'helicopter parent'. But you know what? SO BE IT. How Do I Know My Baby Is Safe? Good question! One way to know your little one is safe is by using a baby video monitor. When my kids were little, I used one all the time! First it was in their rooms, when they transitioned from my bed to their own room/crib. After that, the monitor became a great device to have on hand to 'spy' on my toddler when I was not in the room with him/her. Worked great!!! My good friend just had a baby. She had an old, junky baby monitor and really needed a new one. So, when I was approached to review the Sophia™ Video Baby Monitor and offered her to review it for me, … [Read more...]

Keep Toddlers Busy While Traveling (Can It Be Done??)


*This is a partnered post. Opinions are my own. Whenever I get into the car with my toddler, I fear it will not be a good time! Why? Because he is still in a rear facing car seat and he gets BORED. He will be good for the first part of the drive, but if it is a long drive, he starts to cry. I hate that I cannot be next to him and entertain him, but I simply cannot when I am driving. His sister and brother entertain him the best that they can and usually that is all it takes, but when his siblings are at school and it is just him and I, forget about it! So, I came up with a few ways that help ME cope and my toddler stay entertained, when I travel with him. You can check out my recent post I did for Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep, on how to keep toddlers busy while traveling. How Do You Keep Your Toddler Busy, When You Are Traveling?   … [Read more...]

How I Lost My Pregnancy Weight #PostNatalFatBurner

logo (81)

*This partnered post with Markerly. Story is my own. When I was pregnant with my second child, I gained a LOT of weight. I was pregnant with my daughter and I just put on the pounds. I started out weighing only 115 lbs (yep, I used to be super skinny!) and by the time I had my daughter, I weighed 180 lbs! It was CRAZY!   I never thought my body could put on weight like that but yes, it did. No, I did not have gestational diabetes, either. After I had my daughter, thankfully I was still young and had the energy to workout and eat healthy. I started losing pounds IMMEDIATELY. It was awesome!   Then the dreaded trying to lose the last 10 lbs happened. The weight just would not go beyond that. I was stuck! I started working out more often and harder and then the weight FINALLY came off and I was at a comfortable 120 lbs. That was okay with me.   Being pregnant with my other two kids (my oldest who is a boy and my youngest who is a boy), I just never really … [Read more...]

How Do I Keep My Baby Safe From Germs? #KickstartUviCube


*This is a partnered post. Opinions are my own. Every parent has asked this same question: "How Do I Keep My Baby Safe From Germs?". As a parent we all want to ensure the safety of our kids and that includes those yucky germs, too. I remember when my babies were all newborn. I did not want ANYONE with a cold or sickness to come near them. Of course that is always the best way, to keep germs at bay. But, what if those germs got to your baby/kid anyways? Then they get sick and there is doctor visits, medicine, disinfectants to clean and more! Oh how I hate those germs! According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), "Neonates and young infants are more vulnerable to infectious agents than older children and adults." Source: April 2006 Public Health Report PMC. UviCube When it comes to germs, UviCube wants to make it easier and modernize the way we keep our babies safe with the power of ultraviolet (UV) light.  The future is here and so is peace of mind for … [Read more...]
