When it comes to breastfeeding my son, there are times that I have to give him the bottle. Not that I want to but because he either eats so much and I can’t keep up or he needs a feeding at daycare. Whether your child is on formula or breast milk these bottles from nanobebe can be used. These uniquely designed bottles are shaped like the breast from the shape of the bottle itself and the unique design in the nipples. My son takes to these easily. I will be purchasing these as gifts as well! The great thing about this item is you can get a set of 3 bottles which includes 3 breast milk bottles, 3 slow flow nipples, 3 travel covers, 3 storage caps and 1 breast pump adapter all for only $22.99. These bottles come in two colors; teal and gray!  I wanted to share a few details about the bottles themselves – these bottles are designed to preserve breast milk nutrients, warms 2-3 times faster than standard bottles, bottles stack easily to save space and track pumping . The great thing about the 3 pack like I mentioned earlier is that there is a breast pump adapter that is included. It also comes with each breast milk bottle package. With this adapter it allows you to pump directly into the nanobebe bottles using most standard breast pumps. I personally have the Medela pump and the adapter works great! The BEST part to me is that they are SO easy to clean too! I highly recommend these bottles because transitioning to bottle feeding has become so much easier!
                                                                                                                                                           **  Picture used from **

If you are interested in trying out these bottles you can buy them at Target, Buy Buy Baby, Bed Bath & Beyond, West Coast Kids and Amazon. You can also purchase these directly from their website at If you would like to know more about their products and any new released items they come up with you can follow on their social media platforms at Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube. Below I have included photos of what we received in the 3-pack of bottles.

As for these bottles, i have to say they are by far the best ones i have used with my son. He took to them easily and the flow of the bottles seem to be at his pace. With these bottles they are OK to use with formula fed babies however, they do have what they call their transitional bottle which is better for formula as it has a less concave bottom which helps mix the formula a lot easier. If you are looking for the transitional bottles they can also be purchased at the stores i mentioned above and run about the same price as the bottles we have tried. The transitional bottles are $22.99 for a pack of three as well.

                                                                                                                                   **   Video used from **

Yoee Baby

I had to share this product with you all as my daughter LOVES it. It has become her new favorite toy. She can shake it, teeth on it and we can tickle her with it. She is ALWAYS smiling when we pull it out. It is a MUST have in the diaper bag. If you haven’t heard of it yet, it’s the Yoee Baby Bonding & Play from Day One! To share some information on how this toy was developed, we should start from the beginning.
First, the company launched on Kickstarter and they were the most funded baby toy in Kickstarter history! One of the most important take-home messages for the company was that they believe (along with scientific research) it shows that babies are born ready to play. This is why their goal and accomplishments was the Yoee Baby for playful interactions beginning on day one.  As you know when your baby is first born they do not sit up, grab things or move around. So with Yoee Baby it naturally engages your bundle of joy in the kinds of playful interactions that lead to a feeling of connection and bonding.  They have also loaded their toy with all the features that help promote a healthy development. The best way for you to understand the story behind how this toy was developed and the reason it was developed the way it was; is to watch this short video of Yoee Baby!
Like I mentioned before my daughter LOVES her toy. I was so lucky to work with the company to allow me to see the benefits of this toy and to see my daughter's face light up every time we pull it out of the diaper bag. I took a quick video of my daughter playing with hers as well for you all to see how happy she was when I handed it to her. She LOVES being tickled by her mommy and daddy too! Not to mention she loves to shake it around to hear the rattle portion of the toy as well. This is by far the best toy she interacts with and we actually have a little boy on the way and we are so excited to have his very on little Yoee Baby Fox for him to play with from day one! I will definitely be purchasing these for baby shower gifts in the future as well! Trust me you and your little ones will LOVE this toy!

Don't forget to check out their website and social media to see more of what they offer and to see all the cute options as what pet design you and your little one would like. You can out their website at Yoee Baby, Also follow them on their social media at Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and twitter.

Earmo LED Thermometer

                A new product I was able to try out was the Earmo Smart Ear Thermometer with touchable LED display. This thermometer has won a Design Award and Good Design Award in 2017. It has a streamline curve design that allows comfortable holding and use. It was designed to deliver a better experience of temp-taking.  This thermometer includes the touchable LED screen, accurate measurements, readable under dim environment, instant readings, complimentary app for Apple or Android phones and it has a user-friendly design. 

                One of the main things I like is the touchable LED display. It allows you to swipe the large LED screen up and down and it will show you the past 5 temperature readings. The other things the LED screen will show is the fever is intelligently expressed by LED faces; a smiling face indicates a normal temp reading and the sad face shown indicates an abnormal temp.

                I personally like this thermometer as it has been good to us. We have used the normal underarm or mouth thermometers, the digital scan thermometer you use over the head and I have constantly ran into some type of issue with it. With the Earmo, I can easily collect the temperatures of my 7 year old son and my 15 month old daughter with no issues or fighting me. My daughter squirms so much when she has the one under the arm that I can never get an accurate reading with them. So for me to place this in her ear and be able to take the temperature quick and easy is wonderful!

                If you would like to try it out and see if it works for you, I would visit them at their website at Earmo. Or you can check them out on social media on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube! If you were curious to how much this device costs, it is currently on sale on their website. It was originally $99.00 but you can purchase it for $49.00 now! I love this product and I am sure you will too! Below are a few pictures of the product packaging and product itself. I will also have videos attached below as well!

Stair Barrier

Recently I was looking for something safe and unique…. Something attractive to block off my stairway so that my daughter wouldn’t climb up the stairs and possibly fall down them; I didn’t want to have the normal bar like gates across my stairs. So recently I went hunting for something better. I came across The Stair Barrier. The Stair Barrier is an attractive piece, a solution for those tricky stair cases in some homes, they are structurally reinforced, easy installation without any banister drilling, lightweight and portable, retractable and made in America!

The attractiveness it brings to the home is somewhat welcoming. As most of you know staircases become the focal point in most homes and can stand out. The design of the stair barrier allows you to have a clean and sleek look to your staircase. As for the tricky staircases you may own, you know there are many ways staircases can be built… whether there is a curve, column or square shaped banisters or any other unique spends on a staircase you may face. The stair barrier is designed with ease and can be secured with the simple straps and dual-sided buckles. If you own one that has an extra-wide space or a narrow space they do offer custom widths to accommodate staircases up to 100” wide.

The stair barrier is also structurally reinforced. This allows their gates from being pulled up or down; and without horizontal bars for kids to use for climbing or opening s for kids to get their fingers stuck within the gates.  The installation is super easy as well. There is no assembly required or additional mounting or extension kits needed. Those staircases with banister to banister gates can be installed within minutes without any tools. The gate has an easy to use strap and buckles system that keeps the banister safe and allows stair barrier to be used on any banister type.  The retractable design allows for rolling neatly to one side when it is needed to allow you to go upstairs without tripping over the metal bar most gates have.  The stair barrier is also light weight and portable so you can easily pack it up and take it wherever you go! Some may even like the fact that the company has their products made in America. They are located in Cornelia, Georgia and they utilize American made materials!

For my personal experience, I would agree that it is very pleasant to the eye and doesn’t stick out like the normal gates do. I don’t have to worry about tripping over the metal bars or anything. I definitely would recommend this product to all my friends and family. The only down fall I notice with it is when I have my daughter in my hands and need to go up the stairs or when coming back down. With the buckle clips used to hold it in place can become hard when holding your baby as you need both hands to clip it back in to place; It’s not really that hard unclipping with one hand but it is hard at times to clip it closed while holding your baby. But other than that I LOVE the stair barrier and would definitely recommend this to EVERYONE!

Below I have included pictures of the stair barrier for you to see the simple, unique and best way I use it to keep my daughter safe!

 If you are interested and would like to purchase you can view them at their website at The Stair Barrier or find them on social media at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat and even YouTube!

Baby Bandit

              As a parent I have had MANY and I mean MANY diaper bags, most were too small, didn’t last long or were uncomfortable to carry.  That was until now….. I came across one that is so great – It’s roomy, has large compartments, comfortable straps while wearing it and its versatile and perfect for mom or dad to carry!
                Baby Bandit has the bag you will love! First let’s talk about storage…. This bag has 2 large compartments where both have 2 way zips, 16 pockets, 4 insulated pockets; a magnetic side wipes pocket, large changing mat and extra carry/storage bag. What more could you ask for? This bag allows you to be organized with these mentioned features. The one MAIN reason I love the bag is that the larger compartment area zips all the way down which allows you to find things easier; no more digging in the bag and pulling out half the contents before finding what you were looking for.
                Not only do I love the bag my husband does too! He loves the color of the bag, the comfy straps and he also loves that the bag comes with straps/clips on the sides to allow you to clip the bag onto the stroller.  This bag will make the PERFECT baby shower gift and all! You can see more details of the bag at their website at BabyBandit. Also you can see what others are saying on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

                Below are pictures of the diaper bag that shows how much you can put in the bag and features of the bag itself. This is definitely our go to bag and we will definitely be gifting these at baby showers! I also have some exciting news to share with you all as well! Baby Bandit has been so kind to allow me to giveaway a diaper bag on our Facebook page.

When it comes to products I always feel doctors know best. I had the chance to talk to one about some products I was interested in sharing with you all.  Doctor John Ester shared with me the reasons for the creation of the Joybell Baby Feeding Teethers and the Mirror. I will share some of this with you all and tell you my personal experiences with these products.

First, let’s go over why he created the Feeding teether. He mentioned to me that he believes the 6-18 month age range could really benefit from the quick and easy and safe way to give healthy snacks as well introducing solid foods. Most of the feeders or teethers out there have the mesh feeders and become hard to clean and develop mold on them as well over time. Most parents throw them out for that reason. The other down fall to these was the ones made of silicone much like a nipple from bottles. Now this work great; however, the part that comes in as the down fall is when they are cheaply made with the hinges and clasps. The clasps were easy to break when opening or shutting them so these don’t typically last long either; another issue was the handles were hollow and were not sealed air-tight so they would fill up with dirty dishwater that typically leaks out. With the Joybell they have created a feeder without hinges and clasps and they are SOOOO easy to clean and sterilize. He also designed the handle into a face as like a toy or doll as his research showed that babies in this age range engage with that shape much more than pacifier-like shape. So this allows the child to see the feeder as a toy and not a tool. Even though this seems to have more small parts it allows you the opportunity to use a product that is more cleanable and sturdy. My daughter tried this out with a frozen strawberry lately as she has 4 teeth coming up at the moment and she loved it. I loved the fact it was so easy to clean as it unscrews from each other as I will show you in the pictures below:


Second, is the mirror he designed which I find AMAZING and feel more safe with it than any other mirror I have had. Doctor Ester said that he does generally agree with the car seat safety group about people thinking that it is unrealistic to ask any mother to keep her baby in the back seat, rear facing without being able to monitor them. However, he stated it is also unrealistic to expect a busy mother, alone in the car with her baby, to pull over, get out and check baby every time he/she makes a concerning sound. He asked some of his parents who did not utilize a mirror if they ever used their cell phone to try and “check on the baby” and at least 80% said yes they did! This became a concern to him and it convinced him that it was a good idea for mirrors. So he made it a goal to figure out what caused the mirrors to fall off and cause injuries to babies. He then found out through his research that the straps were coming weak. So he designed one with a clamp style locking mechanism. I LOVE this idea because it allows me to see my daughter very well with the big mirror size it comes in and knowing that it is tightly secure to the seat is wonderful!  These pictures below will show you the way it goes onto the back of the headrest and how well I can see my daughter by turning and looking at the mirror and also a view of me utilizing my rear view mirror too!

I definitely recommend these two products as I use them myself! If you are interested in looking at these items and purchasing for yourself, you can check them out on Facebook at JoyBell. They can also be found at Tuscobia Products. Also, Doctor Ester has been so gracious enough to share with me a giveaway! So I will be hosting a giveaway for the mirror and the feeders!  The giveaway is being held on my Facebook page at Sweet Baby Memories.
