Boon Odd Ducks – Not Your Average Rubber Ducky

Have you seen the Boon Odd Ducks? They are awesome! As a matter of fact the more I learn about Boon products, the more impressed I am. AppleBlossom’s first rubber ducky experience was not quite a normal one either though, as that Elegant Baby duck is lavender with white polka dots… Not Your Average Rubber Ducky. Kids are all different shapes and sizes, shouldn’t rubber ducks come that way too? Meet Slim, Bob, Jane and Squish. We’re not trying to encourage a rubber ducky smackdown, but Odd Ducks are PVC-free, unlike those other mucky ducks. And ours do not hold water, so they won’t grow that black mold that kids always try to suck out. Meet Jane, she’s my favorite. Her only downfall is that after a good bit of play she started to take on water. She’s not suppose to do that, but we still love her anyway. (It. . .

Ten Sleepy Sheep by Phyllis Root & Susan Gaber

Outside in the farmyard, ten lively lambs would rather play than go to sleep. Off they scamper; off they skip. But the sun is sinking, the stars are twinkling, sleepy eyes can’t stay open, and one by one, ten drowsy sheep drop off to sleep in a cozy country countdown. With rhythmic, lyrical language and pastoral scenes of lambs drifting off wherever they may, author and artist blend the perfect potion to ease even spirited little ones into sweet dreams.

Infantino EcoSash Carrier

If you were around Creative Madness Mama in March, you may have experienced some of my fabulous reviews and adventures with babywearing. Thanks to Mom Central and Infantino I was able to experience an Infantino EcoSash. I have seen these in BRU and they have some great patterns and designs. ECOSASH – Wrap & Tie Carrier The EcoSash is designed with style and comfort in mind. It has a natural, form-fitting design that adjusts as baby grows, plus three carrying positions and a whole bundle of features, accessories and surprises. You’ll be ready to roll with a detachable hood, reversible fabric prints, extra padding, and a mesh washing machine bag. Much in the same way that I loved the Big Sister Designs Mei Tai and the TogetherBe Mei Tai, the Infantino EcoSash is similar, but different. It also has features that are like a soft structured carrier like Belle Baby. . .
