Infantino Sync Wrap Carrier

Infantino is truly one of my favorite companies these days. Time after time and product after product that comes out is truly incredible and I cannot help but recommend them. I confess I am a babywearing mama and couldn’t live without my carriers and wraps. Up to this point my favorite has been my SleepyWrap (my review) and then depending on the age, position of my child I have loved my ring slings (others that I love) and my soft structured carriers such as the Infantino Eco-Sash Carrier and the Ergo. My husband thinks I’m crazy, but I keep telling him depending on how I want to hold my baby I need a different carrier. It might be because of the style shirt I’m wearing, and I want to make sure I have access. Or it might be that I’m going to be getting in and out of the car. . .

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!

Infantino Cloud Shopping Cart Cover

Infantino has done it again! Another great multi-purpose product that is gender neutral and cute to boot! We just received our very own Infantino Cloud Shopping Cart Cover and it is adorable. Covered in multicolored numbers this is a great educational tool wrapped up in a germ shield for my itty bitty. Today we went on a test run to the grocery store and it was so easy to pull it out of the zipper pouch, flip it on, settle it down and then fasten her in and we were off!

Infantino Annabel Karmel Feeding Products

Do you ever dream about blog posts that you’ve prepared and then when you go back and look for them discover that it was all a dream and that said blog post does not exist? Oy vey. C’est moi. I love Infantino and especially their new Annabel Karmel Feeding Products. I’m a few days late with this post, but I know I’ve been telling you about how much I like Annabel Karmel long before this tour ever started. (I hope I’m not fired…) Making your own baby food is something that really does not take too much time as long as you have the right type of tools and Annabel Karmel through Infantino provides those. I told you how incredible her cookbooks are for making purees and finger foods. The only problem we had when were in that type of baby food making stage was the lack of certain tools.. . .

Annabel Karmel food making accessories!

The other day I found an incredible surprise at my door. The fabulous people from Infantino and Mom Central have continued to include me in a test drive for Annabel Karmel food making accessories. When AppleBlossom was first hinting toward solid foods I was eyeing these accesories and wish I had bought them then. Now that I have them in hand I know how fabulous they are and definitely would recommend them to anyone making their own baby food. As I told you in the past, I love the cookbooks for baby food from Annabel Karmel and our baby food adventures have been interesting if not very excited. However if I had these when we were getting started things may have gone an entirely different route! Welcome to Annabel Karmel – everything you need to feed your baby or toddler and make mealtime fun. As your baby grows into a. . .

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. . .

Infantino Jumbo Wheel Play Space

When I heard the doorbell ring and went to eagerly greet the FedEx man, I was so excited to see that it was a box from Infantino! Inside I discovered the Jumbo Wheel Play Space and as I put it out on the floor of our living room, I could not wait for AppleBlossom to get down their and investigate. My excitement was quelled for a short while as minutes before the FedEx man arrived she fell asleep. *sigh* Oh the rarity when I want her to skip a nap! Well I gave into my common sense and let her sleep, but when she did awaken, boy was she in for a surprise! The Jumbo Wheel Play Space is packed with fun and space for crawling and tummy time activity. Strategic activities such as a detachable mirror, teethers and an easy-to-press flower which plays a 15-second musical tune are placed. . .

Infantino Fold & Go Bouncer

As I have discovered, not everything goes according to plan when you have a new baby in the house. In our example, a few months before AppleBlossom was born we discovered that the Enginerd was being laid off and then two months after she was born we were off moving from Georgia to Tennessee to start a new life and a new job at a fabulous company. It was only last month that we were able to finally sell our house in Georgia. During this time there was a lot of back and forth. Driving to the house in Georgia, my parents house, my brother’s house, the Enginerd’s parents house, the Enginerd’s sister’s house. Many of the times it seems the only chair that we could put AppleBlossom in was the carseat, and after hours driving that was not ideal. She needed something soft and playful. We were lucky to. . .

Infantino Twist & Fold Activity Gym

One of the fears in the back of my mind as we obtain various baby items is where will I put this when she’s older? I do not want to get rid of them, since I want them around for future children… hmm… storage issues! Another fear that I have in general is that while she’s this little anytime we socialize she’ll just have to play here and invite people over — we cannot go anywhere because her toys just do not travel well. *sigh* Well I am uber glad to have found the Infantino Twist & Fold Activity Gym! Similar to the way you twist and fold up a Pack ‘n Play/travel yard you can do the same with this little gym and off you go (or into the closet it goes!). I love smart toys that think beyond the play time! The Twist & Fold Activity Gym All. . .

Product Review: Baby Einstein’s Baby Neptune Ocean Adventure Gym

One of the first toys that we purchased for our AppleBlossom was the Baby Einstein’s Baby Neptune Ocean Adventure Gym. At first she would cry anytime she was put down aka out of Mama’s arms, yet after a while she started looking around. It was at about ten weeks old that she was interested in playing or batting around. Her favorite part is the octopus with it’s rattle, scrunchy-like tentacles, and now (15 wks) the orange handle. Let the ocean adventure begin! This soft activity gym features a musical aquarium toy with Baby Einstein ocean characters, classical melodies, and dancing lights. A whale shaped prop-up pillow accompanies baby on this underwater adventure during tummy time, which comes to life with the crisp and colorful real-life scenery of the sea on the play mat. Tummy time is enhanced by the animal peek-a-boo flaps with real-life imagery, and the ability to reposition. . .
