Nuby No-Spill Flip-it Cup Review

Image Map


No-Spill™ Flip-it™
Today I will be sharing the Nuby No-Spill Flip-it cup.

The No-Spill Flip-it cup is great. I love the bright colors and so does my son! The best part is the "Flip-top". It is great to be able to easily cover the straw without having to remember a cap. My son loves to flip it closed too. It is so easy he can do it himself! It is great to be able to flip the top and then stick it into the diaper bag pocket. I don't have to worry about it leaking in the bag, or it getting dirty. The cup is easy for my son to hold. Also the straw is soft so it doesn't bother his teeth. He is getting his 2 year molars in right now and it hasn't bothered them at all.

The Nuby No-Spill Flip-it Cup is Available at these retailers:

Spring Henna Workshop

I'm very excited to share this great Henna Workshop with my readers. I love Becca's work! She did my belly while I was pregnant with my daughter. I will be attending Becca's class in May to learn more about Henna. It is believed that if you have Henna done in the last weeks of your pregnancy it will help you have an easy labor, and ward off any evil spirits surrounding the birth.

Sunday Family Update + Announcement

Well another Sunday has come and gone. The weeks are flying by over here. My kids are growing and changing by the day! It is so cool watching them develop their own personality.

My daughter for sure has changed so much in the 6 months she has been with us. I can't believe a half of year has already went by since her birth. She is getting close to crawling already. I would say in the next month or so she will start. I can already tell as soon as she starts being mobile she won't stop just like her big brother.

My son has been doing a lot better with his jealousy issues. I try to take time every day to spend one on one time with him, and it has worked so well! I love how much he is growing and changing too. He is becoming so talkative. My son has been going through "calling me by my first name" thing again. Its actually pretty hilarious to hear him call me "Taya" instead of "mom".

Now for  my update and announcement. I want to spend more time writing about "Adventures". There is so many cool things to see and do in my area. I want to show my readers what fun and exciting things we do around here. I am also looking for local readers to add to this. If your interested in writing about your "Adventures" please email me! Or you can leave a comment below and I will get back to you.

I will continue to do reviews and occasional giveaway so that will not change. I will also be covering cloth diaper, breastfeeding, and babywearing information. I would love to continue teaching so I'll be working more on teaching material and resources for cloth diapers.

Till next time XOXO

Rumparooz Giveaway!

I love Rumparooz. They are one of my all time favorite cloth diapers. Rumparooz has been my go to night time diaper for a few years. I love all the cute prints and fun colors Rumparooz offers too.
 Here is a mini break down of the Rumparooz One Size cloth diaper.

Rumparooz OS on the smallest setting. It fits Newborns 6-10 pounds.

Rumparooz OS on the largest setting. It fits 27-35+ pounds.

My daughter is on the Medium setting which is 17-27 pounds. She will be 6 months at the end of January.

I really love the fit of Rumparooz and so does she!

Now I'll show you a step by step guide on how to stuff the Rumparooz OS pocket diaper.

The Rumparooz comes with 2 soaker pads.

"Each diaper comes with a free microfiber "Rumparooz 6r Soaker". This unique and super thirsty insert will grow with the diaper and has 6 different size and absorbency settings to customize for your babies need. The 6r Soaker also has custom settings for the different areas that girls and boys need absorption most." Quote from Rumparooz Website.

1) Snap the larger soaker pad down.

To use both inserts snap the smaller insert on top of the larger one.

2) Open your pocket located in the back of the diaper.

3) Grab the TOP where both inserts are connected ( or snapped over if your just using one).

4) Stuff your diaper by pushing it to the front of the diaper.

5) Put on your baby :)

To celebrate my first class I want to give away this beautiful Rumparooz OS pocket cloth diaper. This was my reward for teaching at Sweet Peach Baby Boutique.

 "Will work for cloth diapers!" ;-)

 I'll be doing a mini review of the diaper with my giveaway post. More or less to tell my readers why I love Rumparooz! It is definitely one of my all time favorites! I'll be working on the post during nap time so it should be up tonight! Make sure you check back later for your chance to win!

Nuby Easy Go™ Suction Bowl and Spoon Review

Today I will be sharing my review of  Nuby's  Easy Go™ Suction Bowl and Spoon set. If you travel a lot with your kids it is a must to have several storage bowls for snacks and/or meals. We don't travel or go out a ton but when we do I always pack snacks for the kids.

The bowl is a great size. Its big enough to hold cereal for older kids, a snack for toddlers, and purred baby food or oatmeal for babies. The lid fits on perfectly and snaps shut so you don't have to worry about anything falling out or spilling. My favorite part is that the lid has a compartment to hold the spoon so it doesn't get dirty or lost. If you do happen to lose the spoon I have found that the majority of the other spoons I have will fit into the compartment.

The bottom of the bowl has a suction base. You can press the bowl down on a high chair tray or table and it will stay put! There is a little tab you lift up once you are ready to remove the bowl.

The bowls are made from break resistant plastic so they will hold up! The bowl and spoon are also dishwasher/microwave safe! Things that can go into the dishwasher are a HUGE plus in my book!

The Nuby Easy Go™ Suction Bowl and Spoon set retails for $3.99. You can purchase one at the following retailers:
  • Burlington Coat Factory
  • Ross
  • Buy Buy Baby

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

Knot Genie Detangling Brush

If your kids are anything like mine they will absolutely hate getting their hair brushed! My son has super curly, fine hair that turns into a tangled mess so easily. It really is a constant battle to brush his hair. All that changed as soon as I received the Knot Genie! Now there isn't a battle at all and my son actually enjoys brushing his OWN hair! I am amazed at how well it works. It even does a great job on my curly mess. My son has definitely inherited his curly hair form me!

Here are some tips from Knot Genie when dealing with curly hair:

- Never brush curly hair when it is dry! Brushing dry curly hair disrupts the curl pattern, making it large and frizzy. Use the Knot Genie to brush curly hair only when it is wet.

- If you love that tight "springy" look, brush your hair in the shower or bath with the Knot Genie and then simply squeeze in styling product afterwards, being careful not to re-stretch the curls.

- At night, pull your hair into a loose pony tail. Pulling the curls up or back helps contain the curls so you are not tossing them around all night.

- Consider long hair. While many people think curly, hard-to-manage hair should be cut short, often that leads to a "mushroom" look. Extra weight pulls curls down and makes them gorgeous, especially when cut with long layers.

The Knot Genie comes in several colors and patterns. The full size Knot Genie retails for $19.99 and the Teeny Genie retails for $14.99. I received the Camo Cloud Knot Genie Brush to review and one to give away!
Now for the fun part! Enter in the Rafflecoptor below for your chance to win a Knot Genie!

Little Pnuts December Special Delivery Age 2

Little Pnuts is a quarterly subscription box service with four Special Deliveries each year. Each box comes with three to five toys that fit your child's age and development. My son who is 2 years old received his first Special Delivery a few days ago. I won a box from Simple City Life. I am really excited to share this great subscription box with my readers!

Here is a look inside our December box!

1) Zoo Animal Block Puzzle by HaPe. ($15.99) My son really loves this. The blocks are great for stacking as well as making different animal pictures. We have been having such a great time playing with the blocks. They are made out of wood and are top quality.

2) Tim's Building Machines Puzzle Book by Haba. ($14.99) This is a great 3 in 1 picture book! It has several great activities included.

3) Number Matching Puzzle by HaPe. ($14.99) I really love the bright colors and that it has dots to correspond with the numbers as well as pictures along the sides.

4) Clicker Clacker by Haba. ($13.99) This is definitely a very fun musical instrument! My son loves making "music" with it.

I think the Little Pnuts Special Delivery is great. The toys are super high quality and Eco-friendly. My son has had endless hours of entertainment from the toys included in our package. I will definitely be purchasing a 1 year subscription for him. I love that the box only includes toys. It will be a great way to discover great toys and have fun teaching my son new things. I will be doing separate posts for each of the toys included in our Little Pnuts Special Delivery so be on the look out!

Till next time XOXO
