Infantino Tummy Triangle

When it came to tummy time for AppleBlossom what I remember most was immediate spit up and crying of discomfort. She loved being on her tummy on our chests, but when it came to using the “toys” we had specifically for tummy time she and I were not a fan.

So this next time around with OrangeBlossom I was not sure what we would do. We still have that ole ladybug, but I’m not crazy about pulling it out. Infantino fixed my query!

Naturepedic Organic Cotton Lightweight Classic Crib Mattress and… an *extra review* of the 2-in-1 Ultra Crib Mattress

When we knew that we were going to have another child, some of the choices were made easily for us. We knew that we would want to buy a second convertible crib, since AppleBlossom will still be using hers in toddler format for a long while. We also knew that meant a new crib mattress. Knowing how satisfied we were when we purchased the Naturepedic Organic Cotton 2-in-1 Ultra Crib Mattress for AppleBlossom, I knew that I would not be compromised and would go there again.

Little Toader

Little Toader is a neat family company and I recommend you check them out. We started with Storybook PJ’s. This is a zipper footed sleeper set with characters from a matching board book. Whenever we reach for these bedtime is fun! The images on the PJs help to tell the story making it interactive and come to life.  Little Toader, LLC is a Florida based company that was started based on the desire to have a business that would allow us to create products for children that were safe, unique and fun for all!  Having children of our own,we were inspired with so many “they should make…” type statements. After much prayer, God blessed us with the resources and vision to start our own company and design our own products. Safety is at the top of our list. All of our products are tested and Consumer Product Safety Commission compliant. We are constantly. . .

Pediped FLEX

When I was first introduced to pediped Originals I liked them, then onto the still new Grip ‘n Go I was in love. Now as my toddler is more and more activity we have our first experience with Flex. Thanks to our publicist friend we were sent a pair of dress shoes in Pretty Pink, then around the same time with warmer weather approaching we bought a pair equivalent to tennis shoes. I am in love. The dress shoes have a flat bottom while the others have a whole lot of grip and support. I am so completely satisfied and we will definitely be buying more. Pediped shoes are easily our family favorite and we get comments and compliments every where we go! Then… (shh don’t mention this to the Enginerd) I was out the other week and found a pair of Originals that match the new Pretty in Pink. . .

Newborn Diapers

In January last year (2010) I wrote a post about newborn diapers (that I knew of at the time) and since then many more designs are available. But for starters here’s a refresher… and then at the bottom of the post – new excitement! So these are my thoughts from several months ago that I shared with Kim Graham-Nye, co-owner of gDiapers that now I get to share with you with a couple edits to make it current (September 11th, 2009): LOOK @ that itty bitty jaundiced AppleBlossom! Off the top of my head, I can tell you that the Tiny g’s have been my husband’s favorite diaper so far out of everything that we used. In his (I forgot how this diaper works) moments he sometimes even fastened it in front instead of back, and he thought it fit better that way. We are both absolutely in love with. . .

Sunny sandals just arrived! Check out the new selection…

I love pediped shoes! Right now we have some Robeez we bought on sale from the Jackson Babytime when they were going out of business (closed the Jackson, TN location, but they still have the Memphis location – it’s where we bought our cribs). Then we have some pediped Originals that we have bought here and there, but by far, my favorite pair for AppleBlossom right now are her pediped grip ‘n go shoes. They are the ones we wear EVERY time we go out anywhere that I plan for her to walk. Sure the Originals are often our Church shoe of choice, but if I know she’ll be outside and possibly running, I want those grip ‘n go. I’m so excited! Pediped has expanded their Grip ‘n Go line and now there are Sunny Sandals just in time for the warmer weather! The other thing that is awesome about. . .

My Baby Can Talk!

This past year has been a whirlwind. I can hardly believe my baby will be two years old later this year.  Through out the beginning of our AppleBlossom’s education I have seen and used a lot of different things. But there are few things on our favorite shelf that I would recommend that any new parent buys – worth every penny! One of those things is the My Baby Can Talk! Video and Board Book Series. We watch at least one of them almost every day by her request and the combination of vocabulary words, music, colors and entertainment value it fabulous. My Baby Can Talk is a series of award winning DVDs and board books that teaches babies and parents to communicate at an early age, reducing frustration and creating a special bond that is so important for healthy child development. Babies are able to communicate at a much. . .
