Serve Your Toddler Pure Foods with Little SqueezeMe + GIVEAWAY!

little_squeezeme_review

little_squeezeme_review_1Food pouches for toddlers are becoming a popular snack alternative that is not only healthy but convenient as well. In honor of upcoming Earth Day, we are happy to bring you an eco-friendly product that is sure to please parents who are on a budget and prefer to control the ingredients of the foods their toddler eats.

Little SqueezeMe is a set of 5 reusable food pouches that are BPA, Phthalate, PVC and Lead Free. The pouches come in a giftable cardboard box that includes easy to use instructions clearly printed on the back. The pouches are really well made (thicker than single use pouches) and feel substantial while holding. Each pouch has a double zipper on the top to prevent spills and little hands from making a mess. We are loving the pull tab on the top, making it super easy to open and close. The screw-on top works with ease and will give you peace of mind when tossing in the car or diaper bag.

When we filled the bag for the first time, it got a little messy with a strawberry yogurt puree and a spoon. However, it was easy to securely close the zipper after a quick wipe with a clean towel. If you are filling on a daily basis, we’d recommend investing  in a small funnel for thicker purees. It’s also self-standing after filling, which is helpful if you are multi-tasking or need to put them in-between condiments in the refrigerator. The back of the bag has a very convenient clear window that measures the food you place in the pouch (holds 6 fl. oz., which is slightly more than a standard pudding cup). This is great for portion control and to easily see if you toddler has finished the food in the pouch or not.

The pouches are dishwasher and freezer safe. Great for busy parents! Simply freeze pouches at the beginning of the week with your preferred foods and take them on the go. Little SqueezeME can double as an ice pack for milk, fresh fruits, veggies, then simply consume after it defrosts around lunch time. Super easy to clean! Quickly hand wash or place upside down in the dishwasher.

Reusable pouches are great for adults too! Fill the pouch with green juice/smoothie, protein shake or reduce waste by filling with snack foods like applesauce or pudding.

For every purchase of Little SqueezeME, 2 foundations will each receive $1 to support moms and babies.

Capture a Bottle of Sunshine with Little D3 Drops + GIVEAWAY!

liddle_ones_D3_drops_review_vitamin_D_babies_kids

liddle_ones_D3_drops_review_vitamin_D_babies_kids_DROPPERWith the increasing threat of toxins from preservatives and artificial color/flavoring, parents are starting to do more research on products that contain less chemicals and more natural ingredients. We recently became aware of the benefits of Vitamin D for both children and adults through Little D3 Drops.

According to medical experts, 75% of Americans are Vitamin D deficient. Due to this statistic and the alarming Vitamin D levels of young toddlers,  the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that all babies be given 400IU of oral, liquid Vitamin D – shortly after birth whether the baby is exclusively breast fed, partially breast fed or formula fed.

Though five forms of it are known to science (vitamins D1, D2, D3, D4 and D5), the two forms that matter most to humans are D2 (ergocalciferol, a synthetic form made by irradiating fungus and plant matter) and D3 (cholecalciferol, a natural form created in our bodies from sunlight exposure). Aside from being more natural, vitamin D3 is 87 percent more potent than vitamin D2, making it the best form of vitamin D for our bodies and in particular supplementation in babies.

Dubbed the “Little Bottle of Sunshine”, Little D3 Drops is a natural Vitamin D supplement created for all ages that is beneficial in many ways…
-Reduces cancer risk
-Boosts immune function
-Lowers inflammation
-Regulates over 3000 genes
-Reverses depression
-Lowers high blood pressure
-Optimizes bone weight
-Prevents bone loss
-Helps prevent allergies, asthma, eczema and multiple sclerosis
-Mood regulator
-Decreases the risk of sensitization to food allergens, especially to milk and wheat.

When using Little D3 Drops:
– ensure cap is tightly closed and Shake the Bottle well
– using the enclosed dropper, measure the dose required – expel the air in the dropper, place the dropper into the liquid and release the bulb.  This will draw up 0.5 mL.
– may be given directly into the mouth or added to any fluid or food.
– store the bottle upright.

Little D3 Drops is affordable, easy to use with it’s built in measuring system right on the glass dropper, and smells and tastes sweet so you and your little one will enjoy getting your Vitamin D!

This is a great gift for new moms and an easy way for adults to supplement as well. Little D3 Drops retail for under $20 at Amazon.com and comes with a very informative free ebook to learn more about the benefits of Vitamin D.

Beautiful and Functional … Beabies Teething Jewelry Sets

beabies_teething_jewelry_closeup_pearls_bpafree

Tired of your baby always grabbing for your fingers, hands, keys, fine jewelry? Check out the teething jewelry sets from beabies. We recently received a set in the pearl/white color and love the subtle shimmer of the silicon beads. The beads are very well made, strung on a stretchy string with a plastic clasp and feel slightly squishy to the touch. Beabies also don’t have a scent or taste ensuring your baby won’t be breathing in/chewing any toxic chemicals when they are using the jewelry to teethe. Beabies are BPA-Free, FDA approved, PVC-Free, Latex-Free, Rubber-Free, Lead-Free silicone and contain no vinyl, phthalates, plastic, nitrosamines, cadmium, or heavy metals.

We are super excited that you can just place these beads on the top rack of your dishwasher to clean after use.  Since the beads are silicon based, lent will stick to the beads but rinses off easily using only water. No dishwasher? The beads can also be sanitized by boiling water (recommended before first use). Freeze beabies for especially fussy teethers. The beads are soothing to a teething baby, provide entertainment and a chemical-free way to relieve pain.

Beabies are so fashionable you’ll never forget to bring them with you. Match the five available colors to your outfit and go. An accessory that will save your fine jewelry and hands from slobber and keep baby content. Beabies are safe for everyone, but as with any product with small parts, supervision is required while using beabies.

This is a great gift for new moms, baby showers and fashionable aunts and grandmas! Get yours today at Amazon.com.
