Logan and Lenora Wet Bag Review & Giveaway! 12/28

Logan and Lenora is a company that designs AMAZING wet bags! It all started with her first born (Logan) whom they had tons of cloth diapers for. She knew she needed a high quality wet bag to go along with them and ta-da... Logan and Lenora was born (formally Baby By Danish). Lenora is her grandmothers name and has been such an inspiration to her.
 
 
With that being said, we were offered a Logan and Lenora Wet Bag  to review. I choose the Earthy Owl print. I was so very excited when I saw the package had arrived at my doorstep. I was even more excited when I opened the package to see how absolutely beautiful the wet bag was! The Wet bag was thicker than I had imagined it to be and truly made of high quality materials. It is perfectly stitched and completely functional. I LOVE the coordinating fabrics and the button strap has come in very handy when attaching to our diaper bag.
 


I have been using our Logan and Lenora Wet Bag for a couple of months now (washing every couple of days). I am happy to say that this wet bag has held up extremely well (not even any fading of the fabric!). I have had no issues with it leaking  (the lining is heat bonded) and it does a great job at trapping smells. Even the zipper is water-resistant! Rachel uses a thick 7oz cotton fabric for the outside of the bag and the inside is a waterproof lining that is medical grade. It is BPA, lead, cadmium and phthalate free. Also it is completely safe for food!
 
The Logan and Lenora wet bag can hold up to 5 of our diapers. It is the perfect size for short day trips or even a day at the sitters! The best part is that it is highly fashinable along with all of the other great features mentioned above!
 
I recommend Logan and Lenora for all people looking for that perfect high quality wet bag!
 
Logan and Lenora also offers a smaller version (Clutch). That would be great for wipes or snacks too!
 
Be sure to check them out on Facebook!


Logan and Lenora is offering ONE lucky reader a chance to win one of their awesome wet bags!!!!

Purex PLUS Oxi Review!


 




Our family was given a chance to review the NEW Purex Plus Oxi Laundry Detergent and I cannot say enough good things about this detergent. First and foremost, this is the BEST smelling laundry detergent and it truly leaves our clothes feeling and smelling fresh! I highly recommend this detergent! Previously we used All brand with Oxi but have since switched to Purex! The only down fall is that I cannot find it in a larger bottle. Hopefully they will be making one soon.

Nuby Nibbler Review!

 
The Nuby Nibbler is a great tool when it becomes time to introduce solid foods into your baby's diet!  The Nuby Nibbler has a hygienic cap to keep the mesh bag clean before use and helps to prevent messes after use if you are out and about. We first used this product to give Channing frozen breast milk at around 3-4months old when he was in the early stages of teething. At first he had a little bit of trouble guiding it into his mouth, he quickly learned and is now a pro! We now use it to give chunks of avocado, apples and other fun foods. The Nibbler has a twist and lock feature to make this super safe for babies to use but yet very easy for parents to assemble.
 
 
 
The Nuby Nibbler is a handy item to have when it comes to introducing your child to solid foods. My Son LOVED chewing on frozen breast milk during his early stages of teething and this product made it safe for him to do so!  You can purchase the Nuby Nibbler at www.buybabydirect.com for $3.99

NUBY Easy Go Suction Bowl & Spoon Review

Nuby Easy Go Suction Bowl with Spoon - fuschia, one size
 
The Nuby Easy Go Suction Bowl & Spoon is a great on the go product or great for use in the home too! We just got the chance to try ours out during Channing's first cereal experience! Out of excitement, he kept grabbing for the bowl. I was very happy to see that the suction cup bottom kept the bowl securely stationed on his highchair tray! Since then, It has come in very handy to pour dry cereal in while we are on the go. The lid attaches very tightly and the spoon snaps perfectly in place on the top of the lid. This is a neat feature because it keeps the spoon clean and it prevents it from getting lost at the bottom of the diaper bag. I did have a little trouble snapping the lid back on but once the lid is on, it is on very tightly and wont be just popping off! We highly recommend this product!
As always, this Nuby product is BPA free.
(The spoon in the photo is not the spoon that comes with this product.)
Unfortunately the spoon that came with the bowl hit the floor shortly after we got started. It was a bummer because it worked much better than this spoon!

FairHavenHealth.com Review!

FairHavenHealth.com offers many great breastfeeding products for nursing moms! Their newest product addition is the Fenugreek supplement.
 Fenugreek for Breastfeeding Mothers
"Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is an annual herb native to the Mediterranean region of the world. Fenugreek is used throughout the world as a culinary spice and has been used by women for centuries as a "galactagogue" - a natural product to increase the production of breast milk. Fenugreek contains diosgenin, a plant-based estrogen, which has been shown to increase milk flow in lactating women to help support breast milk production."
 
 
 
My Thoughts: I started to notice an increase in my milk supply within a week of using this great product. I took two capsules a day and by the end of the first week I was make almost 2oz more at each pumping session. After a couple of weeks of using this product I have been able to take this product once a week and still produce the same amount of milk.  I love that I saw quick results and that I only had to take 2 capsules a day instead of other fenugreek supplements that require moms to take up to 8 capsules a day. I also love that these products are high quality organic supplements. Just like with any other Fenugreek supplements, I did notice a slight maple syrup smell after taking it for a couple of days. I would highly recommend this product to moms!
(Of course always consult your physician before taking any supplements)
 
Fairhaven Health Fenugreek can be purchased for $14.95 for a 1 month supply
 
 
Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin
I was also able to try the Nursing Postnatal Multivitamin from FairHavenHealth.com.
 
"Most prenatal vitamins do not contain enough of the specific nutrients that lactating women need to ensure health of both mother and baby."
 
I learn something new everyday! I thought that by taking my prenatal vitamins everyday after delivery was cutting it but I guess not!
 
" In recognition of a growing body of research that points to widespread Vitamin D deficiency among adults and children, Nursing Postnatal includes 700% Daily Value of Vitamin D (2800 IU). Once believed to be important only for bone health, recent research has revealed the critical role that Vitamin D plays in the prevention and treatment of a wide array of conditions, including high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, obesity, seasonal affective disorder, prostate cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, rickets, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis."
 
My Thoughts: These vitamins truly make me feel great when I take them. I love knowing that I am getting enough Vitamin D and B Vitamins to support my baby and I's health! These pills are very easy to swallow and are not as bulky as most vitamins. These vitamins also have never upset my stomach and they dissolve easily! (I tested it in a cup of water!)
 
Fairhaven Health Nursing Postnatal Blend can be purchased for $15.95 for a 1 month supply
 
Once again I am very satisfied with FairHavenHealth.com! I have loved all of their products that I have gotten to sample and highly recommend them because they truly work! The staff is super sweet and very helpful! I was also very impressed by the speedy shipping!

Nuby One-Touch Electric Warmer & Sterilizer Review!

 
 
 
The Nuby One-Touch Electric Bottle And Food Warmer

Safely and evenly warms breast milk, formula and baby food
 
I asked my husband which Nuby product that he would be most interested in trying out and this product quickly came to his mind. He disliked that our little guy had to wait so long for his bottles to warm in a cup of warm water. The Nuby One-Touch Electric Bottle and Food Warmer quickly became a favorite Nuby product in our household.
 
I've heard many families say that they purchased a bottle warmer and never used it because it was more of a hassle than anything. I would have to disagree. The Nuby One-Touch Electric Bottle and Food Warmer makes our job easier and gets the job done very quickly. It also doubles as a sterilizer which has come in very handy.
 
To use this product:
  1. Simply plug the warmer in
  2. Add recommended amount of water with the attached measuring cup
  3. place container (bottle etc) in warmer
  4. Push the start button!
 
It really is as simple as that and does not take long for the bottles to come out at the perfect tempurature. The Nuby One-Touch Warmer & Sterilizer is very modern looking and does not take up much counter space. We do put our unit away when not in use but it is fairly small and easily stores in our lazy susan. I love that when the warmer is done, it automatically switches off which prevents over warming! The best part is that this product can accommodate many different sized bottles including wide based bottles.
One-Touch™ Electric Warmer & Sterilizer
 
The Nuby One-Touch Electric Bottle and Food Warmer comes with a handy chart that tells you exactly how much water to use based on the size and temperature of the item you wish to heat. I taped this chart on the inside of our cabinet that hold Channing's bottles.
 
We highly recommend The Nuby One-Touch Electric Bottle and Food Warmer!

I was very excited to recieve this DVD for review. E.T. is a movie that a lot of people are familiar with and a favorite to many. The new Blu-Ray version is amazing for those true E.T. fans because of all of the neat bonus features. I always have such an appreciation for what goes into making great films so I always get a kick out of watching this special footage. E.T. is a movie the whole family can fall in love with.


Thirty years after this beloved movie was recently into theaters, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is making it's Blu-Ray debut. The movie has been digitally remastered for a crisp, clear picture, alongside the 7.1 surround sound. In this movie, a young boy named Elliot, his sister Gertie, and Michael meet a lost alien and they help him find his way home before the government can take him away.

The anniversary edition is a two disc set that comes with the Blu-Ray version of the movie, alongside the DVD version, a digital copy, and the new UltraViolet download code, which allows you to instantly stream and download this movie on any device, anywhere.

There is interviews and footage on the music called "The Music Of E.T.

Also included is the original theatrical trailer, a special Olympics TV spot, tons of designs, photographs, and marketing, along with the UltraViolet, Digital Copy, and access to pocket BLU app and BD-Live.

The Extra-Terrestrial premiered in 1982, it captured the imaginations of people young, old and everyone in between in a way that was unparalleled in modernmovie history,” said Craig Kornblau, President of Universal Studios Home Entertainment. “A global cultural phenomenon—and the biggest box-office blockbuster of its day—E.T.brought out the child in all of us. We are thrilled audiences will now be able to experience the film in the astounding quality of Blu-rayTM.”

Nuby Paci-Cradle Review

Picture of Nûby™ Paci-Cradle™
The Nuby Paci-Cradle is a very handy device that is offered by Nuby! This handy case can hold up to 2 pacifiers and a pacifinder. It has a Flexi-Klip that ensures that it stays securely attached to a  stroller, purse, diaper bag etc. We love storing our extra pacifiers in this easily accessible case because it allows for easy access when we are in need for a pacifier. Before we used the Nuby Paci-Cradle, it took forever trying to find a pacifier in the diaper bag. The Nuby Paci-Cradle also provides peace of mind because it offers a clean environment as well! The Nuby Paci-Cradle is very easy to attach to the stroller or diaper bag and is great for busy on-the-go mommas like myself!

Nuby Gum-eez Review

video
The Nuby Gum-eez first teether has come in very handy for us during the last several weeks as Channing entered the early stages of teething. This teether comes in a variety of bright colors and looks similar to a pacifier but it has a wider tip that is textured that provides relief for sore gums. This teether is great because your baby doesn't have to have good eye-hand coordination to use it. I also love that it has a hygenic cap for when the teether is not in use. Channing loves his Nuby Gum-eez teether. It's especially great for when we are on the go! I highly recommend this as a first teether for all babies!
These teethers are made of medical grade silicone, which is 100% BPA Free.Gum-eez™ First Teether™
