Object in Rearview Mirror is…Asleep: Back Seat Baby Mirror Review

Standard

Baby Car Mirror Since babies need to be in the back seat and rear facing in a vehicle, it makes it difficult to see what’s going on with baby girl.

Is she sleeping?

Is she awake?

Why is she crying?

Is the sun in her eyes?

This is why I decided we needed something to help us see what’s going on in the back seat.  I was happy to discover that such an item had been invented and I didn’t have to attempt my own creation.

Why I Use a Water Warmer and Not a Bottle Warmer: A Baby Brezza Water Kettle Review

Standard

Baby Brezza Water Kettle ReviewHappy ThuRsday Review!

I did my best to actually post on a ThuRsday this week, even if I am down to the wire!

When I began my baby registry one of the first things my sister told me to register for was a bottle warmer.  It sounded like a good idea to me until I was walking around the local Babies R Us and I came upon a water warmer.

After some research, I chose to register for the Baby Brezza Perfect Temp Water Kettle.

Why you ask?

Rub-a-Dub-Dub: What I like about our Baby Bath Tub

Standard

So…instead of working on my blog during the evenings this week I used my time to finish sewing Baby V’s crib skirt (it’s about 11 weeks late!).  Which means my ThuRsday Review didn’t get posted on ThuRsday.  Sorry!

This week I decided to give a review on the baby bath tub I registered for and received, the Fisher-Price Calming Waters Vibrating Tub.

Cloth Wipes & Warmer Review

Standard

Okay, so my ThuRsday Review is being posted on Friday.  David was out of town for a few days this week so I didn’t have a chance to write and post yesterday.  Better late than never?  Here goes!

 If you are a cloth diapering mommy or daddy,

have you considered using cloth wipes?

Grovia Cloth Wipes

When I made the choice to cloth diaper our newborn I decided we would go all the way and use cloth wipes as well.  I have been very happy with this decision and I think my husband has been as well (maybe I should check with him…). Read the rest of this entry

I guess I’m down to the wire today for my ThuRsday Review.  Today’s review is on an item that David and I found to be essential to our newborn’s comfort and helped us get some sleep at night (in addition to our Snuza), the infamous Rock N Play.    Read the rest of this entry

Baby Movement Monitor Review

Standard

Snuza GoA few days after our newborn was home I suddenly became paranoid that she would stop breathing in her sleep and I wouldn’t know it. I instantly went online and reviewed the options for movement monitors and chose the Snuza Go for our little one. Read the rest of this entry

When did I last feed or change my baby?: A Baby Journal Review

Standard

baby tracking journalWelcome to the first ThuRsday Review!  Read on for a review of a baby item that is used daily in our household.

Hours and days blur together when you add a newborn into your life. The Newborn Baby Tracker allows for parents to track when baby eats, sleeps, plays, soils diapers, takes medicine and more.

In our tech savvy world, some parents may choose an app for their smart phone, but for our family a good old fashioned pen and paper have been the way to go.  When our baby wakes us at 1, 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning crying the last thing we think to grab is our cell phone. We place the journal on the dresser in the baby’s room and then the next person to go and check on her can see what she may need – diaper change, bottle, burp, etc. It’s also helpful when we have someone else watching baby, we don’t have to worry about them not having an app and having to track info on a random piece of paper.
