Booby Trapper giveaway

Eternity Booby Trapper – Retail value: $48

Featuring an exclusive dual-rim design, Booby Trapper is the only nursing cover to keep fabric off the bust area to allow for complete eye contact and air circulation for the nursing pair. We are giving away our extremely popular Eternity pattern, a gender-neutral trendy print.

Designed by a mother of 3, Booby Trapper was born out of a recognized need for a superior nursing cover. Blankets and one-rim covers just wouldn’t cut it as her daughter hated having the fabric flop in her face and she was stuck using her only free hand to hold the fabric away constantly both for air, eye contact and to check for a proper latch. After many trials, Booby Trapper’s revolutionary, dual-suspension design was achieved and now mothers everywhere are able to nurse much more comfortably in public without having to fight with their covers!

Review: Nuby IcyBite Animal Teethers

I received a complimentary Nuby Icy Bite teether to review.

As a first-time parent, I’m learning that teething never stops the first two years. Does it stop at two? Please tell me it stops eventually!

Right now we’re dealing with pre-molars and canines. When Baby J is in pain, I always prefer to use natural options first, before reaching for any sort of medication. I’ve heard many times the benefit of cold things against a baby’s sore gum, but the downside I’ve found is, well, it’s cold. Baby J doesn’t want to hold cold fruit or a frozen washrag, etc. Yes, there are ways around it (wrap the end of a frozen washrag in a non-frozen washrag), but surely there’s a more efficient option! And that’s what’s exciting about Nûby’s IcyBite Animal Teethers.

Nuby's IcyBite Animal Teethers

Nuby's IcyBite animal teether features a removable cover. Find out more on My Life: A Work in Progress

This BPA-free teether has a removeable cover that your baby can grasp, so his or her little hands don’t get cold!

In the shapes of animals, these teethers are fun and brightly colored. The non-toxic PurICE gel inside the teethers stays cool longer than water filled teethers. Just place the teether inside your fridge until it’s cold, and then give it to your baby to soothe your little one’s sore gums.

Nûby’s IcyBite Animal Teethers are available at the below retailers:

Review: Keep your teething baby stylish with Bazzle Baby Banda Bibs! #holidaygiftguide

Baby J has been teething, is teething, and probably will still be teething for weeks to come. As he’s cutting his pre-molars and molars, the amount of drool that comes out of his mouth is just amazing. How does he stay hydrated?! The tops of his shirts become completely saturated, unless I put a bib on him, which he usually yanks off immediately. But I’ve tricked him. He doesn’t realize the bandanas that Bazzle Baby sent us to review are actually BIBS and not just cool toddler accessories, so he keeps them on. Win for Mommy! =D

Banda Bib- stay cool while you drool! Read more on My Life: A Work in Progress
Bazzle Baby is a fun online store that sells paci clips, burpers (burp clothes), hair accessories, socks, Little Leggies (leg warmers), hats, and several styles of bibs. I’m crazy about the Handmade Baby Bibs that Bazzle Baby sells. They’re made by moms here in the USA, and they’re really, really cute!

We received two of the Banda Bib II in Lime Greenie and a blue giraffe print (pictured above) that I couldn’t find on their website. The bibs are made with 100 percent cotton in the front and 100 percent polyester on the back, so they soak up the moisture and keep it off your baby or toddler’s skin. Both bibs are really, really soft too. I think that’s part of the reason why Baby J doesn’t mind wearing them- they’re more comfortable than any other bib he owns, especially around the neck.

The bibs fasten in the back with snaps. There are two snaps, letting you adjust the bib as your baby grows.

Bazzle Baby also sent us their Houndstooth Burper (9″x18″), which looks much better in person than in the website photo! It’s big, soft, and absorbent. If you’re looking for a nice quality burp cloth, I’d definitely recommend checking out the 100 percent cotton burpers on Bazzle Baby.
