Nuby Product Review: 3 Stage Teether Set with ALL Natural Teether Wipes

The past few weeks we have had a crazy time with teeth in our house.  First off, Ben is about to lose his very first tooth and he has two other loose ones!  I am not a fan of loosing teeth so I am praying that he looses it in school or when his father is home! YUCK!!  But Owen is having the opposite issue right now.  For the past few months he has been going through the terrible stages of teething.  I always feel bad for the kids when they start to get their teeth.  It must be so painful for them and they can’t tell us in words.  It’s also very painful for us moms because we have to figure out a way to soothe our extra cranky baby.  Thankfully we have some great Teether products from Nuby to help reduce some of the pain.  Owen loves chewing on all of his teethers.  Right now he is enjoying these new ones that we received from Nuby!  The typical teething ring is nice but sometimes they need some different textures and shapes to help get those hard to reach teeth.

Owen {and of course Sean} tested them out for me a few days ago.  Owen’s favorite teether is the Stage 1: Super Soft Teether. He loves it not only because it’s cold but it seems to really massage his gums.  The poor kids is such a cranky mess until I give him one of these teethers.  And the wipes that come with it are great to carry around when we are out shopping or at the park with the boys.  Owen loves throwing things around and his teether is no different.  So it’s perfect for when he tosses it out of the cart in Walmart or Target and I can clean it off for him.

Nuby Product Review: Splish Splash Stackable Cups

Yeah! I am so excited to show you another set of wonderful Nuby Products! Once again, I was given 5 items to review and share with you all on Erinthe Irish Mama. I love having the opportunity to be a Nuby Parent Blogger!

10622754_10203300852976060_1718495991903284631_n

Owen hasn’t always been too sure of the bath.  He didn’t hate it but he never really enjoyed it either.  I could get an occasional smile out of him but he really just wanted to get out and get dressed! But now that the little guy is sitting up and exploring everything in sight, he has started enjoy his baths a lot more.  There’s no more bathing him in the tub on my bed, now he is in the big tub and loving it.  Now I need ways to keep him sitting still while I clean his chubby little body.  Most of the older boys toys are too small or too gross for Owen to play with so I chose these adorable little cups from Nuby.  They are called the Splish Splash Stackable Cups!

6152_wnu01_h001

Now, like any item that I get to review, the older boys attack the package first.  I had to hide these toys from Sean and Ben for a week because they were fighting over them.  Sean said that they belonged to him, but Ben insisted that they were for Owen! I couldn’t take it anymore and hid them. I only pull them out now when it’s time to give Owen his bath.  The boys have no clue where they are and Owen has his own special stack of toys.

But back to the Cups! Owen loves them.  He loves that he can fill them up with water and watch them drain out of the bottom.  I love draining the water over his head, he LOVES it too.  He is still a little too young to understand that the cups stack but I am showing him how it works.  He’s starting to get the hang of it.

IMG_0210 IMG_0213 IMG_0217

From Nuby:

 “These cups help teach your child coordination and help with the development with their 5 senses while providing hours of fun and they are BPA free so they are safe for your baby or toddler to use.”

Available at these retailers:

So I am glad that Owen has his first set of bath toys and is finally enjoying the tub a lot more.  If he is anything like his brothers, then I know really soon that he will never want to get out of there! The boys love their tub time!

Next time I will be reviewing the Clik-it™ No Spill™ Grip n’ Sip™ cup!

Roughy Toys – One 2 One

A few months ago I was asked to talk about Roughy Toys.  I am a little behind on my blog posts so I apologize for just sharing this now. But make sure that you check out this amazing toy and there may even be a little giveaway at the end of the post!

Meet Alex.

Alex-Plush1-300x300

Isn’t he adorable? Is he a monkey or is he a bear? Either way, he is an awesome guy.  Alex likes to bring lots of joy to children, especially to the ones who may not be able to afford their own toys and stuffed animals. Thanks to Roughy Toys, Alex is bringing smiles to kids all over the world.

Roughy Toys is a great company and when they reached out to me, I knew that I needed to jump on the chance to work with them.  My kids have a million stuffed animals, very few of them come with any meaning other than it’s their favorite character from a book or a television show.  But this guy, Alex,  is awesome.  He is the cutest little monkey/bear that Owen likes to cuddle with when we are hanging out in his room.  He sits right on top of his toy box in Owen’s room.

unnamed

Now why is Alex so amazing?  Well Alex is amazing because for every Alex that is purchased, one is donated to a child in need.  Amazing!  Roughy Toys also have an amazing book called Adventures of Alex.  This can either be bought together with or without Alex.  Just some of the places the donated Alex’s travel to: children’s hospitals, Ronald McDonald houses, domestic abuse shelters, orphanages, and homeless shelters.

 unnamed-218x300

Roughy Toys was founded by husband and wife team, Rich & Grace Twilley after an inspiring visit to Brazil. While Rich was finishing his masters, he visited the favelas (slums) of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil and witnessed children in extreme poverty – children with no toys.
When he got home, he was playing with his two year old son Mark and realized that he didn’t need just another toy, he needed a more meaningful toy and Alex was born.

It’s an amazing toy.  If you would like to share a stuffed animal, please go online to Roughy Toys and purchase one today for only $29.95.  Not only will Alex put a smile on your own child’s face, but Alex will also bring joy to one other child that would never have the opportunity to purchase him.  You also have the chance to win one of your own from Roughy Toys.  They have been kind enough to do a giveaway for all of my wonderful readers.

Check out my Erin the Irish Mama Facebook page for the Roughy toy giveaway.  All you need to do is like the post, share it and leave a comment on who you would like to win one for!

Nuby Product Review – Fun Feeding Section Plate

I forgot to post this review a few weeks ago when I started using the Nuby plate!  But here it is!

This time around I had the chance to review the Fun Feeding Section Plate.

65633_hdr_1

The kids just love when I get new plates or bowls for them to use.  Owen is still a little young to get a plate but soon!  So I tested this one out with the other two boys in my house.  They of course fought over who got to use it first and on which day.  To break up that fight I brought out the Nuby Wacky Ware Bowl for one of them to use.   It did the trick.  They each had a new bowl/plate and then they switched with the next meal.

IMG_6176

I love these plates because Ben always likes to eat fruit and it is usually very messy and runny {you just have to love sticky mandarin orange juice}.  So these plates are perfect for dividing up his fruit and his chicken/sandwich.  His chicken and vegetables don’t get all soggy from his fruit juices.

{P.S. Don’t judge the dinner — at least there’s fruit on that plate}

I also love that you can microwave this plate to head up those leftovers that they forget at lunchtime! I will definitely have to pick up a few more of these plates!  Owen will need his own pretty soon.

Nuby feeding accessories are made to withstand the challenges of daily use and retain their bright colors and resilience. This sectioned toddler plate is ideal for children who are beginning to feed themselves. It is suitable for warm or cold foods. 

Available at these retailers:

• www.BuyBabyDirect.com

• www.amazon.com

• www.diapers.com

• www.kidslandusa.com

Snackeez – Sean’s Favorite Cup!

So last week I received such a fun product in the mail.  The Snackeez!  I know that you guys know all about this and I couldn’t wait to give it to the boys to try out.   The only problem is that I have one Snackeez! and two boys! Thankfully they have been pretty good about taking turns {but I may have to run out and buy another one soon}.

The Snackeez! is a pretty cool snack / drink cup.  It combines both into one. It’s perfect for in the car or at the park. The bottom cup holds 16ozs of any drink and the snack cup seals into the cup.

Sean was my first tester and he LOVED it.  He was excited to show it off to some of his friends after school.  One of the boys saw it and yelled out “Hey that’s a Snackeez!”.  Too funny! He knew all about the cup!

IMG_7779

IMG_7789

I love the Snackeez! because it’s convenient but also because it’s dishwasher safe {on the top shelf}.  The other day we took it to the bus stop filled with his favorite cereal and it’s always convenient to travel with in the car on the way to the barber shop.  He loves carrying it everywhere and it’s perfect that I have no extra bags of trash from their snacks!  They usually end up on the floor of my car but not anymore!

unnamed (12) unnamed (11)

Where Can You Find the Snackeez!

“Anywhere and anytime, it’s Snackeez! time! Available in four color schemes at Bed Bath & Beyond, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Walmart and more.  Just $9.99″

*** I was not compensated for this review but I did received a Snackeez! to try out.  All opinions are my own {oh and my kids} ***

Nuby Product Review: Storage Bowls with Feeding Spoon

Welcome back to another great review from Nuby.  Today I am reviewing the Nuby Storage Bowls with Feeding Spoon.

tableware_5310_hdr_1

This great set is awesome when you are on the go with the little ones but still need to feed them without the mess.  I started using these right when Owen started eating baby food.  I knew at first he wouldn’t be able to eat the entire jar so I would dump half of it into this container and cover for later.  Then when he started eating on the go it was perfect to throw a little bit of food in there and take with me when traveling so I could feed him the perfect amount.  If I brought the entire container and wasn’t able to refrigerate then it would spoil.  This way I could bring the right amount and not worry about wasting any food.

I also love that they are dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe.  Anything that I can throw in the dishwasher is a huge plus to me!  And Owen really loves the spoon ALOT.  He chews on it everytime I try to feed him!

IMG_7903  unnamed (10)

  • At home or on-the-go, any Mom will appreciate the convenient design of these feeding and storage bowls from Nuby! They’re made of break-resistant polypropylene, just right for a child’s grasp. The lids snap tight for freshness and on-the-go use. The included spoon has a long handle and rubberized grips for an easier feeding experience.

Nuby Product Review: Step-up Stool

Welcome back to another Nuby product review.  This was a fun one.  You would think that reviewing a step stool might be a little bit on the boring side but soooo many people in this house get use of it {ahem me!} that it’s a wonderful product.  Check out the Step-up Stool.

accessories_9750_hdr_1

I originally wanted to use it for our downstairs powder room.  Ben and Sean run downstairs early every morning without brushing their teeth or getting dressed so we tend to brush down in the powder room {odd I know but whatever works}.  Well our bathroom has a pedestal sink and the boys are still a little too short to reach the sink to brush and spit properly.  The old stool that I had for them was destroyed by someone who we shall never name.  So when I saw this one I jumped on the chance to check it out.  Especially since I read that it can hold up to 800lbs.  I really would like to test it out but I don’t think I can fit 20 people on there to try.  Maybe a small elephant? But back to the Step-up Stool.  It is pretty awesome.

It’s PERFECT for the kids.  It’s cute and has some texture to the step so the kids won’t slip and slide on it.  Which is very important when they are in the bathroom washing their hands or brushing their teeth.  Water tends to go EVERYWHERE so I feel safe that they aren’t going to slip and fall while standing on there.

In my powder room I have problems checking out my outfit in the mirror. I will confess that I usually jump up on the toliet seat to see myself full view {yes I even did this 9 months pregnant}.  But now I just use the kids stool. I can get a better view of my outfit and make sure that I look somewhat put together and I am not covered in spit up before running to the bus stop.

  • The Nûby™ Step-up Stool has a No-Slip Top and No Skid Base that adds to the sturdy and convenient design. It holds up to 800 pounds and is perfect for getting to those hard to reach places. Textured surface provide the necessary grip for safe usage, and it is small enough to store discreetly.
  • Available at these retailers:
    • www.buybabydirect.com

Beech-Nut 100% Natural Baby Food

So a few weeks ago Owen’s doctor gave me the okay to start feeding him some baby food.  I always love this stage of my babies. I love seeing their faces when they have their first bite of food.  Will they like it? Will they grimace?  I love trying out new foods to see what the kids enjoy.  This time around I want to make sure that Owen is getting some of the best foods that I can provide for him.  I want him to have some healthier eating habits than my other two boys. I also had every intention of making my own baby food.  I went back and forth over this and finally decided that I would make sure that the foods that I give to him are healthy and natural.  I will make sure that as he gets older that I provide him with some wonderful meals {not happy meals}!

Well a few weeks before Owen got the okay to eat food, I was contacted by Beech-Nut to sample some of their newest baby foods.  They just launched their newest 100% natural foods. PERFECT!!!! I couldn’t wait for Owen to have his first taste of food.

NEW BN LOGO 9:13

The samples came in the most beautiful wooden box.  The packaging was beautifully branded and the new jar designs are pretty nice and fancy too.  And they were not sample size at all.  I received four full jars of baby food.  Two in Stage 1 {Just Carrots and Just Honeycrisp Apples} and Two in Stage 2 {Just Spinach, Zucchini & Peas and Beets, Pear & Pomegranate}.

IMG_6329

Beech-Nut food for babies is made with natural ingredients. That means no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Beech-Nut takes out everything moms don’t want, and leaves in the essential nutrients that babies need. They use a wonderful new method called gentle cooking™ to make the food.

What is just gentle cooking™?

  1. Close-to-Home Ingredients  – We get the best quality ingredients we can find, staying as close to home as we can but
    going where we need in order to get the best quality.
  2. Cold Puree  – We love food just the way it is, and don’t want to do anything more than what’s necessary.So to be as gentle as possible, we create a puree from raw fruits and vegetables instead of cooking them first in order to avoid cooking nutrients away.
  3. No Artificial Preservatives  – Deaeration means we take the excess air out of the food so the good stuff like nutrients and great taste can stay in the food without adding any kind of preservatives. The good stuff is everything that lets you know this is real food: vibrant color, natural aromas and great flavor.
  4. Gently Cooked  – When we cook our new food for babies, we use indirect heat similar to a double boiler so that none of the flavor or nutrients gets watered down. Cook time varies according to the ingredients; you wouldn’t cook a pear and a sweet potato for the same length of time, and neither would we
  5. Jar  – And finally, the food goes into our BPA-free glass jars

Beach-Nut has 40 delicious new flavors with foods like pomegranate, avocado, papaya and beets. They select only the highest quality varieties of fruits and vegetables, like Honeycrisp apples, Bartlett pears and Haas avocados.

Here are just a few of their newest flavors:
• just honeycrisp apple
• just sugarsnap peas
• just mango, kiwi & papaya
• just mango, apple & avocado
• beets, pear & pomegranate
• just pear, raspberry & asparagus
• just apple & aronia berry
• spinach, zucchini & quinoa

The first one that I gave to Owen was the carrots.  They were so beautiful and bright and I tasted a little bit so I know that they were good too.  Now by looking at the pictures below I can guarantee to you that Owen agreed.  The kid just started eating food and he downed the entire jar!

image image

The next one that I fed to Owen was the just honeycrisp apples.  Again he devoured them!  What can I say my boy loves his food.  I know that I have tried several brands with my other boys but I plan on sticking with Beech-Nut and their 100% natural products. I cannot wait to go shopping for more of their flavors.

The new Beech-Nut line will be available in stores, including Wal-Mart, Kroger, Meijer and Publix, in spring 2014.

Visit Beach-Nut for more information about their flavors and to find the new Beech-Nut line in your neighborhood.

Website  /  Facebook  /   Twitter  /  Pinterest

Beech-Nut is also working with the Non-GMO Project and they are in the process of seeking verification for all of their products.  I know that this is very important for a lot of families out there.

Nuby Product Review: Wacky Ware Bowl

Never in a million years did I think one new bowl would cause so much controversy in my house.  I just love this cute bowl from Nuby {The Wacky Ware Bowl} and was lucky enough to get it for a review. I thought it would be perfect for Owen now that he has started on some baby foods.  It was the perfect size to mix some cereal and fruit together for his breakfast.  It was the perfect shape, it looked like it would stay put on his tray and not slide around. Plus there was a lid so I could cover it up and save for a bit if I needed too.

IMG_6175

Well the second I opened up this bowl Ben jumped on it like it was the best thing ever invented. So Owen’s breakfast bowl has now officially turned into Ben’s breakfast & snack bowl. It’s the perfect size for his homework snack.  Oh and Owen does like eating his food out of there too!  It’s just the right size for all of the boys!

  • Nûby™ Wacky Ware has been designed to put the fun back into feeding. The microwave safe Wacky Ware™ Bowl  is colourful, fun and functional to use and has a lid that seals tightly to prevent spills and store food. Made from tough, durable materials in bright colors and decoration makes it perfect for you and your toddler.

    • Ross Dress for Less
