Squishy Baff

Kids seem to like the grossest stuff. The slimier the better. My son is the worst when it comes to gross and slimy, nasty stuff, so when we were sent the new Squishy Baff, you can guess that my son was ready to try this stuff out. I read the information packet I was sent and went over it several times before giving in on the official test, lol.
My fear was it clogging my drain, but after trying a small amount in a test bowl, my concern was put to rest once I saw for myself that this stuff turns back to water with the second pack of solution. So how does it work you ask? Well, first you fill up the bath tub with water, then you sprinkle the Squishy Baff Powder in the water. Then, you have a gooey mess of a bath that the kids just find to be the coolest thing in the world. I mean, this stuff is gooey and slimy, and plain gross. But as you can see, my son loves it, in fact he loves it so much we have gone out and given in to buying more for his and his sister's baths. Once your kid is done playing in this squishy, slimy stuff, just sprinkle the Squishy Bafff Goo Dissolver around the squishy bath goo and it turns right back into water, which safely goes down the drain. I find this stuff to be gross, but like I said, the kids love it, so it is a hit, and I will have to say it does make the whole bath time so much more fun than just the plain ole bath water we usually go with!

Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow #Giveaway (Preparing For Baby Guide) CLOSED!

Our newest little addition to our family will be here before we know it. I have a little over 3 months left, but this whole pregnancy has just flown by for me. I am also having to limit what I do due to the issues I am having, and if this pregnancy is going down the same road as I went with my son, then we could be meeting our baby boy sooner than later! That being said, I am going over and over everything that I need so when he does get here, I am more prepared than I was with my son. I am a breastfeeding mom. I have nothing against bottle fed babies, in fact with my daughter, with work and school, I ended up having to quit breastfeeding after just 3 months due to my schedule. With my son I went until he was 9 months old. So, when it comes to what I prefer, I prefer breastfeeding, but I completely understand the need for bottle feeding as well. Since I will be home again with this baby, I will be breastfeeding, and that being said, there are plenty of supplies that I will need to help make the breastfeeding process easier and comfortable. One item that I not only love and live by while breastfeeding, but also recommend to others who choose to breastfeed, is a breastfeeding pillow. Recently I was sent a breastfeeding pillow that is different than the ones I have used in the past. I was sent the Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow from Simpliesse.
This pillow is amazing! I love the unique angle it has, which is great for digestion not only for breastfeeding but for bottle feeding as well. This angle also helps reduce reflux, which is something that a lot of babies, including my son, experience. Since this pillow is wider and fatter, it helps keep baby from rolling off. I also love that this design is made to grow with your baby, which is great and it is also made to place baby in different positions which can be very beneficial for both mom and baby when breastfeeding!! On top of getting the great Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow to reveiw, I was also sent a great Pillow Cover. The Pillow Covers for the Gia by Simplisse are quilted which makes for a very comfortable cover for you and baby to use. The covers also dont use zippers, which makes putting them on and taking them off very easy when washing and drying them! Well, since I am preparing for my little bundle of joy over here at Mommy Katie, the wonderful people from Simplisse would like to help one of my amazing readers prepare for their own new baby by giving one of my readers their own Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow!!

Comfy Critters #Giveaway CLOSED!

I love finding new products that my kids will love!! My son loves his blankets, I mean the boy carries them around after getting out of bed in the mornings and if I let him, he will take them outside with him as well. He doesnt have a particular blanket, it just happens to be what he slept with the night before. Recently I was sent a blanket so to say, that is perfect for my son. I was sent Seymour The Shark from Comfy Critters! Seymour is a shark, but he is not all bite, in fact he is very soft and cuddly, and the perfect blanket buddy type thing for my son!! I love Seymour's smile, which I see to be perfect for my son to cuddle when he goes to bed and for when he wakes up in the morning to watch his cartoons with!!
Seymour is just one of many lovable, hugable characters from the Comfy Critters line of friends. I love that not only do they made for a great plush like snuggle buddy, but the can also be used as a blanket to keep your little one warm at night, and they can also be worn, which is just way too cute! Well the wonderful people from Comfy Critters would like to give one of my amazing readers their own Comfy Critter friend!!
