Snug Baby Monitor for Smart Phones (BabyCam)

This WiFi monitor is so easy to use! It comes with instructions that you can actually understand. Some of the things it tells you to click are worded slightly differently on my app (android) but really, with a bit of common sense you can do it. The night vision is good, the video quality is great, and I like that I can talk to whoever is in the room with just the click of a button. There is about a second delay in video, and a couple for sound. Totally acceptable for this type of device. I had tried to put this in my kids’ playroom but my WiFi is not strong enough that far from my router. My cell phone times out for the video portion and I have to unlock my phone to get it back, but the sound portion stays on the whole time the app is open and I find that to be very helpful.

Another feature this monitor has is you can record and take pictures, but I haven’t figured out how to get them onto my cell phone yet. I haven’t really tried yet, but you can access them in the app to look back on later. I guess you could just screen shot the picture from the app on your phone if it was something you really needed to have. The app also has the option to alert you on your phone if motion or sound is detected above the selected sensitivity level. You can also have it snap a picture or video when the alarm is triggered as well. I will be messing around with this more at a later time.

I would recommend this to anyone if the WiFi is strong enough in the room you need it for. If your cell phone is slow on WiFi this is not going to work for you in that room. We have little to no cell service so we rely on WiFi for everything and nothing works well in the room furthermost from our router.

Natures Touch Body & Baby is an Etsy based store that is run by Tanna Larson out of California! She makes a range of natural minded products for Mom and Baby! From sitz bath to sugar scrubs. I am seriously obsessed and planning to get my gifts from her for next year!

I received the nipple balm, spiced coconut pie sugar scrub, and the boo boo balm for the purpose of this review.

I instantly started using the nipple balm in addition to a “triple nipple” cream I was prescribed from my OB. My son got thrush 4 months ago and we cured that easily, but the effects have been lasting on my end! Nothing was working and I found that using this alternating with my prescription worked so much better than using the RX alone or with just lanolin. The nipple balm is quite solid so I had to dig in a bit to get some out, but that’s great because if the baby gets into it…no mess!  Ingredients List:  Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter, Calendula Flowers, Marshmallow Root, &Beeswax. All of the ingredients are organic!

The sugar scrub in spiced coconut pie….I don’t even know where to start..IT’S AMAZING!!! It smells so good I want to just hide in the shower and eat it…I probably could since its all organic/natural ingredients..but then my legs would be sad! The texture is nice and gritty so it really exfoliates. I rub a good amount all over my legs and arms while in the shower and I have not needed lotion once since I started using this! I get really dry skin especially in the winter months so this has been huge for me! This would be my number one product to recommend for a nice gift for Mom or Wife just to spoil them a bit! I even used it very gently on my baby in the shower one time when he jumped in with me, and he was extra soft and wonderful afterwards. Ingredients List:  Coconut Oil, Shredded Coconut, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon, Vitamin E, & Sugar.

I was really excited to use the boo boo balm, Cruz falls all the time. This came just in time for him have fallen out of the toy grocery cart, and get a bonk. It smells really nice like lavender and goes on pretty smooth. I am not a doctor so I can’t tell you if it actually helps anything but he really enjoys getting the balm on his owies! I actually used it on my nipples once as well on accident and they didn’t fall off or anything ;). 100% organic Ingredients List:  Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Apricot Oil, Comfrey Leaf, Plantain Leaf, Calendula Flowers, Yarrow Flowers, Lavender Flowers, Echinacea Root, Beeswax, & Vitamin E.

I give all these products 5/5 stars! Couldn’t get any better in my opinion!!!

Zeus & Baylees 1st Snow!

Today we got our first snow of the season in our little town. Of course I had to let the dogs go potty…Zeus was so happy to be out, and then he seemed a little confused. I let him get used to it then I let Baylee and Jemma out. Jemma could have cared less but Baylee went running around like crazy and licking the snow off the outdoor kids toys. It was adorable. They ended up congregating under the large tree..where they promptly found a dead bird to play with…gross.

Mousand Magic Handle Tangle Detangling Comb

This detangling comb/brush has absolutely changed my mornings! My daughter had super tight ringlet curls and combing her hair was a screaming nightmare every day. So I finally cut it all off thinking it would make life easier…I was wrong! It’s been over a year since we cut the curls off and she still cries every time we comb her hair for preschool. Then I received this brush/comb. She now brushes her hair herself, and then I go over it with maybe 1-2 “ouchies” total if that! My mornings are no longer awful. The quality of this comb feels great! It fits comfortably in my hand (right handed). It’s gotten wet and hasn’t fallen apart like our cheaper brushes we have bought in the past. I think what makes this brush great is that it has a longer set of bristles accompanied by the shorter set, so you have to go over the hair more, but it pulls so much less! This comb couldn’t get any better for me! I received this for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review, all thoughts are 100% my own and were not influenced in any way.

Silicone Baby Bottles

Masmuki’s Breastfeeding Bottles:

These bottles are a great set to grow with your child. My main complaint about the bottles are that they came with no instructions. I boiled them before use since they came in a half opened bag and I didn’t want to take any risks. The “slow flow” nipple is actually fast flow in my case, my son can squeeze the bottle and soak himself in seconds. The sippy nipple is pretty nice, he will actually use it with no issues. The bottle set comes with what seems like a million pieces so you can change out the handles to a classic style bottle. I have attached a video on how to change those out. The little white pick things are for helping get the seal over the top of the rim, but I have found I can do it easily with just my hands. The set also came with what I assumed to be plastic rims to keep the seal closed, and it does the job so hopefully that’s what it was for! My son will be 2 in just under two months so he is not interested in the baby puree spoon attachment, so I am going to see if I can get another nipple to fit in there. I received this set free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Xtreme Canteen- 32oz Double Wall, Vacuum Insulated, 18/8 Stainless Steel Wide Mouth Water Bottle

tiffani

I am not a good water drinker, as in AWFUL! I won’t drink water for a week at a time…so bad. Well this has made water so much better for me! I swear the water tastes better out of this, I have a thing about plastic..I won’t drink out of it, so this is amazing! Plus my water stays cold ALL DAY LONG. I did a test run and put ice in at 3:30 and kept adding new water as needed. When I went to bed at 11, my ice was still in there! It was melted when I woke up the next day, but the water was still colder than room temperature. The canteen is easily washed with soap and water, no need to put in the dishwasher. I love the Tiffani Blue color, it’s nice to look at. Overall I am just so happy to have gotten this canteen water bottle, it really has changed how I drink water, I’m thirsty just writing this now! I received this free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
