Safer Baby Toys-Made From Rice-Mochi Teething Ring Giveaway


If you worry about the paints, dyes and materials used in your baby’s toys, you are not alone. It is very important to make sure there are no toxic chemicals or lead in the toys your baby uses when teething. That is why I want to introduce you to the Mochi Teething Ring from The People Toy Co.

Mochi baby toys are created with rice that’s harvested in Japan and then transported to their state-of-the-art facilities. Next, the rice is mixed with a unique blend of special ingredients to create an 100% safe and sustainable Mochi rice-plastic. Engineers hand-assemble each piece to their exact specifications, free of any harmful adhesives and paints. Mochi prides itself on earth-to-home craftsmanship. In fact, you can even smell the aromatic notes of fresh rice grains as soon as you open the packaging.

Check out my video review of this safe and fun teether:

Discover New Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus #WhatULuv #Giveaway For $25 GC & Luvs Diapers

“This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.”

luvs-night-lock-plusWhen we are first time parents we tend to go overboard with our parenting. With the second baby, we are more relaxed and we understand that life is not scripted. We don’t have to buy the most expensive diapers, in fact, we learn that more expensive does not mean better. Luvs recently introduced the new and improved Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™.  These diapers are softer and more absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee, Luvs provide high-quality features for less cost than premium brands.

 

Join the Luvs and iConnect team on November 29, 2016  at 9:00-10:00 PM EST for a Twitter Party to learn about the new and improved Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™ and win lots of great prizes, too! RSVP HERE!

You may or may not be surprised by the results of a form poll of moms across the country that Luvs conducted. The purpose was to take a look at what parenting is really like and uncover what moms value the most. The survey found that:

  • Nearly 2 in 3 moms have never taken a day completely for themselves
  • 81% of moms would prefer an entire day off from housework than dinner with their celebrity crush.
  • 87% of moms agree that the first time their child slept through the night was one of their best parenting times yet.
  • Even a short spurt of “me” time goes a long way! A quarter of moms surveyed stated that they felt an uninterrupted shower was more relaxing than a day at the spa
  • Other major moments moms value more now than before they became parents include sleeping past sunrise, watching television and movies that aren’t cartoons and having an uninterrupted phone conversation.

To make the Luvs value even sweeter, Luvs is offering a money-saving $1 print-at-home coupon! Click HERE to access a Luvs coupon for $1 off any one diaper pack except travel or trial packs. Coupon can be used at any mass, discount or grocery stores where Luvs Diapers are sold.

Baby, Baby! Lets Baby See Who God Loves #BabyBaby #FlyBy #Giveaway

It is never too early to read to your kids. I started to read to mine in utero. I even had that Dr. Seuss book that was made to be read to your unborn child. When they are born and as they grow, keep reading to them. Sometimes those eager little hands can wreak havoc on the pages of books. As a book lover, that stage made me nuts. I soon learned sturdy board books were the option for us.

I want to share a great board book with you today. Baby, Baby! by Diane Stortz and illustrated by Allie Busby is a short rhyming poem book that celebrates the discovery and wonder that fill baby’s days. At the end there is a special reminder that Baby is always loved by God. This sweet book  is perfect to add to any new baby gift or first birthday present. With the holidays fast approaching it would make a nice little Christmas gift for your baby or one that is close to you.

baby-baby-cover-300x300

The book features such adorable illustrations of babies doing all kinds of things from riding in the stroller to banging on pots and pans. At the end a baby safe mirror is on the page to show baby who it is that God loves. Babies love to look at themselves and they will have so much fun seeing their reflection in this book.

Back-To-School shopping for kids is expensive and the more kids you have, the more expensive it can be.

Do you have little ones who will be starting school soon? It can be scary heading off to Pre-K or Kindergarten for the first time. Sometimes a reassuring note from mom or dad can make all the difference in a child’s day. That is why I love the Personalized Lunch Boxes from I See Me! No need to waste resources every day to leave your child a lunch box message because there is a chalkboard on the underside of the lid. Now all you need to do is grab a chalk marker or chalk and write your child a special message when packing their lunch. It will be something you both look forward to.

I see me lunch box 2

These lunch boxes come in so many great designs for boys and girls and the personalization make them so special. They are so wonderful for way more than just lunch. They make a great new baby gift. You can order the box with the new baby’s name and then tuck some nice things inside. It will definitely be a unique and treasured keepsake. Speaking of which these boxes are great to hold all kinds of collections and treasures. Perfect for traveling to hold some things to keep kids busy in the car or at restaurants. They have so many uses!

My kids love to keep their collections in them. I appreciate how great the look and what an accent they make to their rooms. I See Me! has such a large selection of personalized books and gifts, I enjoy shopping there for unique gifts for family and friends. I must also note that in these days when many parents are naming their children with very unique names it is nice to be able to get them a gift with their name.

Check out the NEW! Personalized Lunch Boxes! Each lunch box features your child’s name on multiple sides! I think you will be impressed.  You can see my video below for an in-depth look at these great boxes.
