Nuby Fun Drinking Cups Review

Fun Drinking Cups


Somewhere around the age 2, my daughter wanted to drink from only cups like mommy and daddy. I am so happy that I got the chance to review Nuby Fun Drinking Cups, they are perfect to transition your kids from sippy cups.









            My daughter loves these cups and I love how she would drink water more often now :) These Nuby Fun Drinking Cups are made from break-resistant plastic that is durable enough to withstand the challenges of daily use. They are great for children who are just beginning to drink from an open cup because they are sized perfectly for smaller hands. The design and fun colors will make it more fun.
              I have seen similar products in market but none is as good a quality as these Nuby cups. Its recommended for kids aged 18 months and above. Its BPA free.
           
             Available at these retailers:

Nuby Oral Care Set Review

Nuby Oral Care Set

        I got a chance to review this product, thanks to Nuby. I am quite impressed with this 3 stage Oral Care set. I wish I had this when my daughter had no teeth. There are so less options for cleaning babies teeth/gums, but Nuby has done an awesome job of designing a product that will fit all baby's needs.
           
        These Nuby beginner toothbrushes promote the early development of good dental hygiene.


 
 
Massaging Brush #1-  designed for babies over 3 months of age. It has been specifically designed to feel soft on the baby's gums. This would be perfect for parents to massage baby's gums.
 
 
Massaging Brush #2- designed for babies over 11 months of age. This brush massages and helps clean during the teething process. This would be ideal time to teach your child proper brushing habits.
 
Nylon Bristle Brush- Designed for babies with teeth. According to your doctor or dentist recommendation, you can switch to the soft nylon brush once teething begins.
 
 

 
 
 
My daughter has her full set of teeth and loves using the Nylon Bristle Brush. The handle of brush is very comfortable for tiny hands to hold. I would really recommend buying this set to get started with a healthy routine early to encourage the start of good oral health. The set is BPA Free .
 
Available at these retailers:
  • Food Lion

Keep Momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
 
As an actress, a public health advocate and former journalist, Holly Robinson Peete has seen it all. And as a mother of four, she’s encountered just about every parenting challenge you can imagine. One of her biggest challenges as mom is building and maintaining a close relationship with her teenage daughter, Ryan.

 

The mother-daughter relationship is a unique one, and that dynamic can be even trickier during the tween years. Yet sometimes, people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.


I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

 

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

Nuby Foam Bath Letter and Numbers Review

My daughter loves singing the ABC song and is slowly learning to count. She sings the ABC song when she is taking a bath too. When I got the chance to review Nuby Foam Bath Letter and Numbers, I knew my daughter would love it.


Nuby Foam Bath Letter and Numbers


 

I love how Nuby gives an opportunity to turn fun bath time into a leaning experience.  The set contains 26 letters and 10 numbers in fun colorful printed design.  The letters and numbers float in water and stick to wall when wet.






My daughter easily figured out the trick that the numbers are going to stick when wet as you can see in the pic above. She would dip the letters and numbers in water and have fun sticking them. I would ask her to find different numbers and she was really excited to find it and than stick it on wall.




Phthalate and BPA FREE, the foam bath letters and numbers are suggested for ages 18+ months.

Available at these retailers:

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask #powerofplants

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask


I received Boots Botanic Ionic Clay Mask complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
Being a full time mom hardly gives me anytime to take care of my skin.  Even though, I would love to get a facial everytime I am getting ready for a party....I hardly get any time with so much on my list. I was so looking for a good face mask to give me this instant and fast way to freshen up my skin without leaving home.
     I open the tube of Boots mask and loved how easily it came out. After squeezing toothpaste out of tube...I was ready for a workout to get the mask out too :) Loved the consistency. So there in my bathroom....I felt like a mini spa...I put up my hair up and applied the mask....and picked up my favorite gossip magazine as I took my bubble bath. The mask dried up pretty fast and I washed it after as I took my bath. I really liked how my dry skin didn't feel all flaky or dried up after mask. I would give it a 5 star. Its the affordable and pretty easy way to get that extra TLC for your skin :)

Disney Side @Home Celebration

Disclaimer- I received free products from Disney Parks and MomSelect in order to host the Disney Side Home Celebration party. The opinions expressed here are my own.

When I was chosen to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration I was beyond ecstatic! My 3 year old is a big fan of Mickey and Minnie and as soon as I got my package delivered, she was running around helping mommy getting ready for party.





I am quite impressed with the kit which not just had American Tourister suitcase but a lot of party goodies inside it. My daughter was thrilled to see the Mickey Mouse plates, cups and napkins. As soon as she saw the suitcase, she thought we are going to Disneyland :) The decorations were all disney themed and the mickey mouse table covered stayed on our dining table even after party as my daughter would not want to come out of disney side for a looooong time.






     We had our party of Feb 28th and kids had so much fun. The kids loved coloring T-shirts and getting tattoos done. Some parents got excited to get their tattoos too...we all have our Disney Side and this party gave us a chance to show it.




All the kids went home with great party favors like Mickey stickers, HP Photo Card Packs for photo printing at home, Mickey & Minnie poster, Run Disney poster, craisins, bracelets, tattoos and lot more.





Everyone has a Disney Side and there are lots of ways to show your Disney Side through fashion, food, or your favorite characters, or frequent visits to Disney Parks, it’s time to let it shine.  Gather your fellow Disney fans, grab your Mickey ears and prepare to sprinkle some pixie dust on those who cross your path as you let your Disney Side take over! You ca check the Disney side celebration website for more ideas . A big thanks to  Huge thanks to Disney Parks, MomSelect & Maria Bailey, HP, American Tourister, ABC’ s The Chew and Ocean Spray.
