MAM Anti-Colic Bottles & Pacifiers

MAM Anti-Colic Bottles can take the stress out of newborn feedings. Designed with leading developmental experts, the MAM Anti-Colic Bottle helps reduce the stress associated with newborn feedings and decreases colic symptoms in babies by 80 percent.

Suited for both breast milk and formula, the bottle design helps babies stay relaxed by eliminating air pockets during feeding.  Patented ventilation holes in its base allow it to flow evenly without bubbles for reduced gas.

The design features an innovative silicone seal to prevent milk from leaking out during mealtime. While using bags of breast milk I was heating the milk in the bag so I didn’t have a problem with this. However. Once I started using a bottle warmer they did start leaking.

The bottle’s design makes it a pleasure for mom to use.  A wide mouth allows for easier filling and washing.  It is comfortable to hold during feedings.

An innovative self-sterilizing design allows mom to quickly and safely sterilize an empty bottle in the microwave. (A feature that their pacifiers have as well.)

Make Kidoodle.TV the Only Choice for Your Family

My girls like watching cartoons in the morning while they are eating breakfast and getting dressed. But I sometimes find myself doing one of two things: either running to turn the channel because something is coming on that they can’t watch or searching forever to find something for them to watch without luck.

There is Kidoodle.TV now though. Similar to Netflix, but so much better. Kidoodle.TV is just for kids. I was amazed and impressed with it from the moment I installed it on Austin’s tablet. Kidoodle.Tv is available for viewing on most internet based devices.

I choose her age range and then there were so many different shows that she could watch based on her age and title by title selection.You can have up to 5 different profiles with different avatars and background colors for the different profiles.

Oh, before I forget to mention, it has parental controls, parents can control the viewing parameters for each child, helping to ensure a safe viewing environment. As well as you get to set time limits for how long your child can be viewing.

At only $4.99 a month Kidoodle.TV is Built for Kids, Loved by Parents. I do love it for Austin, who is old enough, for the most part, to know what she can watch, but Brookland is getting her own tablet for her 3rd birthday, and I feel confident letting her use Kidoodle.TV. I know that the shows she is watching are age appropriate.

Right now you could enter to win one of 3 iPad Minis being given away in March and April by entering through the Kidoodle.TV Facebook Page.

You can see for yourselves everything that I have experienced. Kidoodle.TV is offering you a 25% off code for a year subscription to Kidoodle.TV. This coupon expires June 30, 2014. Our exclusive, custom discount code is MCC25.

We’re Hunting Kinder Eggs! #KinderMom

Happy Easter to you all! My kids are jumping off the walls and asking me every few minutes how many more sleeps until the Easter Bunny comes. To say that they are excited would be an understatement.

Easter is all about candy and chocolate and marshmallows Peeps. With that said, I, errr, I mean the Easter Bunny, doesn’t bring a lot of those to our house and this Momma is very thankful for that. Instead, he fills plastic eggs with different goodies.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • hair clips and elastics
  • coins
  • small candies/chocolates
  • small toys
  • stickers
  • etc

This year we’re including those things too, but also some other great things, including new toothbrushes to clean up all the junk. Something they have been asking for each and everytime we head out to the store: Kinder Eggs. {I think they may have an addiction. They love the toys inside!}
Kinder Easter 2014

This Easter, Kinder Canada has these great boxes: Egg Hunt Kit, everything you need in one box. They also have Easter baskets with 4 Kinder Eggs in them. And my favorite the Kinder mix. I just love those little eggs!
