Tiny Tots Tuesdays: Be a Confident New Mom with Dr. Carey’s Baby Care First Year Baby Care Guide + GIVEAWAY!

dr_careys_baby_care_first_year_baby_book_review

Sometimes being a new parent can be daunting. You feel like you are unsure of your baby’s reflexes, mysterious rashes, not to mention remembering which milestones happen when.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Dr. Carey’s Baby Care book is 100 page easy to read guide with over 120 full color pictures to help you along your journey as a new parent when you naturally worry about common medical problems and baby care. The book covers commonly asked questions that doctors receive but don’t always have the time to explain the answers in detail. The topics will help you feel at ease and the pictures will help you distinguish between common every day baby patterns or a common medical issue that should be looked at by a physician.

The book also teaches the art of swaddling and comes with two soft, gender neutral swaddling blankets (shown at left). This is the perfect gift for new parents, or even parents who need a refresher course! Dr. Carey also has products coming soon that will compliment the baby care book including a colic kit, stuffy nose, teething and more.

You can purchase an e-copy of the book for under $10 at Amazon.com. Enter our Rafflecopter giveaway below if you’d like a paper copy and swaddling blanket kit direct from Dr. Carey’s!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Tiny Tots Tuesdays: There’s a New Swaddler in Town, Meet Lambie & Me

lambie_and_me_review

lambie_and_me_review2Swaddling blankets are a very popular staple in today’s baby registries. There are lots of options but it can quickly be confusing on which blankets to purchase since not all blankets are made of quality materials or made to the same size specifications.

Lambie & Me is a Mom owned business that really cares about their line of products. The company currently provides swaddle blankets, bibs and more! We were also impressed with their well kept blog that offers weekly articles featuring parenting info. that is up-to-date and informative.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Lambie & Me currently provides two sets of swaddling blankets. We received the “Just Dots” set that is patterned with gray and red dots (show in pics). They also have a set called “Just Caterpillars” that is adorable. The swaddling blankets are the standard boutique size (47″ x 47″) and are big enough to also use as a Nursing Cover, Stroller Cover, Changing or Play Mat and Travel Blanket. The two blanket set is made of organic cotton and comes pre-washed, which helps them compete in softness out of the box with their major competitors. After washing a few times, the blankets are noticeably softer and we can see how they would wear really well through years of use.

One of our favorite features are the gender neutral prints. The swaddle blankets and bibs are all in gender neutral colors which is great for gifting in early pregnancy, for gender neutral baby showers and for moms who generally like modern colors and not the typical pink and blue. If you would like to get your hands on a set of Lambie & Me blankets, they can be purchased at Lambie & Me or on Amazon.com.
