I had the amazing opportunity to meet a Joovy marketing contact at the Baby Shower last week. Did you know that Joovy not only makes baby gear but they just released Boob Baby Bottles and Dood Cups. I went home from the event with a few Boob bottles and a Dood Drinking Cup to check out. I am quite impressed with how Joovy really thought about everything when it comes to their Boob and Dood line.
For all 3 of my kids, I made their baby food at home but used what I all ready had except for a few small items. I never purchased any separate baby food maker. Now, so many great baby food making aids on the market, it is hard to not buy something to make your life easier. I had the opportunity to try out 3 great Fresh Food items by Munchkin: Fresh Food Chopper and Steamer, Fresh Food Grinder and Click Lock Fresh Food Freezer Trays.
My daughter never took to a bottle or a soft or hard spout sippy cup. Once we started solids and started giving her a cup for water we tried the soft spout cups but mostly she bit on the nipple to get the water out. Then we gave her a hard spout nipple and she did not like it. She quickly learned how to use a straw cup and which has made our life so easy. She now takes are milk, water etc from a regular cup with a straw (we have to hold the cup still) or from a straw sippy cup. I had a few straw cups but needed more so I decided to try the Tommee Tippee Explora Truly Spill Proof Straw Cup!

This past weekend I had the unique opportunity to attend the Pre-Golden Globes Event the Boom Boom Room. Aside from getting excited about seeing celebrities (yes I love it) I had an amazing opportunity to sample many new and existing baby/mommy products. These next few weeks are going to consist of reviews of products that you will be happy to learn about.
Here is a review of 4 Philips Avent products that I received:

In 2010, Texas-based company, Abiie, launched the G2G with a innovative fold-out diaper changing system. The seat folds out to create a flat surface in which you can lay baby down. This means that you can easily and comfortably change your baby’s diaper in the stroller.
As consumers we are all aware of the dangers with plastic bottles. Even though BPA bottles are readily available and more widespread than ever, there are still risks. BPA-free bottles can leach chemicals and petroleum by-products just from normal wear and tear. I had heard of Pura Stainless but never thought about trying their bottle
