#HonestFeeding with Honest Company

When Hudson was born 2 years ago one of the things that I wanted to do BETTER the 2nd time around was be more informed on my buying choices.  With Boston, I see now where the issues are developing from me not taking control of his eating situation. Or any situation where I am an educated consumer and fed him the RIGHT choices. 

It's tough.  You want your kids and family to BE healthy.  You want to know that you're doing the very best you possibly can to MAKE THEM EAT HEALTHY.  And then you find out that there is crap in your kids food that they use to make motor oil and you freak. 

At least I did.  

I got more interested in what I was feeding my kids and realized there was nothing on the market that is a non GMO baby food.  Yeah, yeah. I get it 'breast is best'.  But you are free to search my site and you'll see that my breast are crap.  My babies would have never survived if I did that. 

And frankly, I was medicated for PPD so they didn't want or would I allow them to have what I was having.  And I'm 100% ok with that!  I love my babies.  I'd do anything for them and that includes keeping my mind in good order to enjoy the moments with them along the way. 

Whoa. I'm getting WAY too deep with you about my motherhood policies, I guess.  But what mother wouldn't want their kids to get their very best in life?  Jessica Alba sure did.  I'd go on a limb to say that's why she teamed up with Honest Company. Co-founded more like it.  She found her daughter eating her DIAPER and couldn't figure out what the ingredients were and if they were toxic. 

So awesome that a woman like her had the resources and opportunity to MAKE A CHANGE in our household like millions of others.  We're officially obsessed and proud spenders at Honest.com.  Yes, I am teamed up with Honest Company to share their new NON TOXIC - NON GMO feeding lines - but it's a no brainer for me to share when we live the HONEST life. 

So yes!  Thats the fun of Honest lately!  They have a gorgeous feeding line out that is changing the way parents are feeding their children.  The only bummer is that I only wish they had this when my son was a baby because I couldn't find any non GMO formula!  Thankfully you have that option if you're a new mom. 

The #HonestFeeding has many products to make baby dining easier.  From Lactation Plus to Nursing Pillows and ORGANIC FORMULA.  Honest will offer options for moms who choose to breastfeed, formula feed or both!

What is your favorite product from the Honest Company? ME?  I LOVE their fruit and veggie wash. MMMMmmm!

SwaddleDesigns SMART Blanket

This may be on of the coolest (and smartest) ideas I have seen in a long time!

SwaddleDesigns, a made in the USA brand, has developed a swaddling blanket that has a QR code sewn to the label that opens up a white noise, swaddling instructions and even baby care videos, right on your smartphone.

How SMART is that?!

SwaddleDesigns teamed up with renowned pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp to offer this new product called “SwaddleClub." SwaddleDesigns’ patent pending design is the first to permanently attach a QR label to a swaddling blanket to access educational information and stream white noise to a mobile phone.

 In the app you will find: 

  • White noise: There is a fabulous library of white noise sounds that can sooth your baby as she goes to sleep. There are a number to choose from so you can find the perfect sound that works best for your little one.
  • Swaddling instructions: In addition to swaddling information, parents can access how-to videos on their phones. Brilliant and so easy!
  • Dr. Harvey Karp: Renowned pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp, author of the best-selling book and DVD The Happiest Baby on the Block, provides his expertise in a series of short baby care videos.

You can learn more about the SwaddleClub at  www.swaddleclub.com. You can purchase the beautiful new designs at www.swaddledesigns.com.

 


Infanttech Always in View Review

Infanttech Always in View Review

This entire motherhood thing have been able to put unique products in my hands that I just love testing out!

I have always wondered why there never was a product like this. You know, one that can actually SEE who was the trouble maker in the backseat of the car! ha

Actually, this product is meant for safety.  

You know how you have that baby in your backseat and he/she starts crying because their binky fell out?  

Then you stretch, reach, and ALMOST have an accident because you can't really see it? Those days are gone!

“Always in View™” Baby Monitor for Cars is a wireless video monitoring system  that allows you to see your baby while driving! The high-def camera inside the cute and cuddly plush {like this adorable monkey} broadcasts images of the baby to a color monitor conveniently that you place on the dashboard of your car. The camera comes with infrared lighting which allows you to able to view your baby day or night. 

The “Always in View™” Baby Monitor for Cars helps reduce distracted driving, unnecesary head turning, and awkward arm reaching movements keeping you and baby safe!
