Stay Dry with Trunki PaddlePak

Stay Dry with Trunki PaddlePak

Real Mom Media is always on the go, especially during the summer. That means a lot of sand and a lot of water. We are always on the look out for great products that will help make our summer travel easier! And we found one!

Disposable Bottles called Steri-Bottles

Wow!  Wish they had these when Boston was little.

Maybe they did-but I didn't know about them!!  I had my girlfriend try out these disposable bottles.  They are BPA free and totally make life for 'moms on the run' a lot easier!  They are called Steri-Bottles. 

These bottles were first sold in England and are most recently sold in the U.S. 

I've always LOVED the take and toss plastic cups for their convenience and these are great for bottles!  My girlfriend loved them.  She begged me to get more! ha.  She said they are easy to assemble and her baby took to them right away.

You can buy these at BabiesRUs.

 

eZoom by Securus

Keeping Track of Kids

I love Halloween.  It's always a fun time in our neighborhood.  We have a little pizza party on our cul de sac then hit the pavement to load up on sugary treats.

As my son gets older - I often wonder when I'm going to let him go 'trick or treating' with the neighborhood kids alone.  Eh... not sure yet.  Afterall he is only 4.  I mean, maybe if they have an escort but I feel like I need some piece of mind.

Recently I was sent a product for review that really got me thinking.  I never let me kid play in the neighborhood or even in our circle alone.  I have to be outside with him or my  husband at all times.  We just live by those rules.  

The product is called eZoom and its through Securus.  

What's great about this product is that I feel like 'Momgyver'!  (Remember McGyver show?  Yeah.)

It's a small tracking device that you can throw in your kids pocket or even their loot bag.  And you can clearly see exactly where they are and where they are going!  

Not that I think I need to be all sneaky on him... but there is a definite piece of mind about knowing where they are!  Kind of like the 'Find my iPhone app'.  I never use the app-but the piece of mind is golden! lol 

And it works!  GREAT!

You can track online and on your mobile.  It's useful for so many things.  Not just the kids. lol.  Cars, bikes... you name it!  And if you use it for something that requires insurance, there is a good chance that you can get a discount on your insurance for doing so!

There is an alert button on the device that can alert you immediately and notifies you of their location.  You can also create 'safe spots' like their school or park and if your child leaves that spot you get alerts for it!  Talk about TOTAL peace of mind!!

Details on eZoom Tracking and Safety Locator

*$99 for the actual device

*$14 for the protective case

*Approx. $250 a year activation fee (includes activation)

PERSONAL OPINION:  Now, i would definitely buy the device, but the service charges are about $100 past my budget per year.  

What do you do to keep track of your kids?

Pocket Purifier

How many times have you found yourself grossed out when your kids bring home their lunch boxes and you think "GERMS!!!"

Since I've become a mom I've found myself to be 1,000 times more anal aware of germs with my kid.

EWWW.  Are you TOTALLY grossed out now?  I know I am.

Heck.  I just slather on disenfectant this is the HARD CORE killer of those nasty germs.

EzShade by Solar Eclipz

Yep!  Summer is RIGHT around the corner!!  And if you're like me-I say bring it on. 

We are about an hour from the Jersey Shore. (And NO not the shore location where Snooki & her posse chills. haha)

Going to the beach can be fun but dangerous at the same time.

The sun can be so dangerous! 

The ezShades are compact and created by a mom who was tired of chasing the shade under her portable umbrella!  I hate that too.  Total pain.  The ezShade has a UPF 50+ rating.  That's blocking 99% of both UVA & UVB rays.

They are lightweight and easy to carry around.  They are endorse by the melanoma International Foundation.

Retail Value: around $40 for the canopy shade & $25 for the umbrella shade.

Toy Bungee Review

This is a very cool project and it really fits a wide range of ages in kids.  I love how moms come up with so many great products to lighten our 'mom load'!

The Toy Bungee was created by a mom who had a 1 & 2 year old and was TIRED of the throwing game!

She's one smart mom.

The Bungee is great to strollers, highchairs, car seats, on the airplane - really anywhere!

I don't know how many times I took my kid shopping and he dropped his toy out of the stroller and I didn't realize it.  There goes that toy.  Forever. 

Bring on the Bungee!

Retail value around $10.  Get it at Amazon

 

Pura is a very cool stainless steel drinking bottle.

They have now branched out to a children's line!

Pura Kiki ((Found HERE)) is the 'safe modern feeding system for infants & toddlers'.

I was sent a pink one for review-and since I have a boy-I gave it to my girlfriend to check out. And.. she LOVES it.  I never thought of a bottle, nipple & all-but in a stainless drinking system!  It's an awesome product to check out!

Andele! Andele! Check out this Mexican Getaway!

I am oh so very excited to share some awesome info that I have recently become privy too.

Since I of course can't go to CanCun and act like a rediculous college kid and drink till I'm blue in the face and slide down the side into that disgusting water at Senior Frogs.. hahaha. (NO, I NEVER did that anyway.)

I have some secrets on an awesome new collection of FAMILY FRIENDLY, Mexican Vacation Resorts!!
