Nuby Squid Squirter! As much fun as it sounds.

Looking to spice up bath time? Get your hands on the Nuby Squid Squirter! This toy is sure to make things exciting! Its the first one the kids grab for when they get into the tub...
Why, do you ask? Because it makes the biggest mess... lol It makes me laugh reading the diapers.com description... because it is totally true. "Nuby's Squid Squirter is a fun way for your child to shoot water all over the bathroom. When you hold the squid under water and pull the handle back the chamber is filled with water. Then push down on the handle and watch the water squirt everywhere. Parents beware, this will be aimed in your direction."SO right on...
They love pulling the curtain closed during bath time and squirting each other. Fun, Fun, Fun... but it can be equally messy... so put a smile on your face, grab a towel, and let them be kids... I will say though - the stream is pretty strong so make sure they're not spraying it too close to each other... I have to imagine it wouldn't feel so awesome in the eye.
 Overall - I am always thrilled with Nuby toys... they're BPA free... easy to clean... and like I said - its the boys' favorite! So another win over here with Nuby. As you can see - our collection of Nuby bath toys is getting pretty large and were super happy with all of them!

3 Stage Feeding Set from Nuby - a must have for all moms!!

Alright - I know Im always bragging up Nuby... but they're genius. Here is why... one bottle/cup... three transitioning options. When you have a baby one of the overwhelming things can be trying to figure out which bottle & or cup they will go for. Zavery was by far my pickiest child. I tried EVERYTHING to get him to nurse - he wouldn't... then we went through about 8 different bottle brands and styles... he finally adjusted to a Tommy Tippie bottle. But wow - I wish I would have had these for him at that time!! Nuby has so many great bottle options from BPA free plastic, to glass, narrow or wide nipples... textured... everything your baby might like... and as they grow and change, the 3 Stage Feeding Set is a MUST in helping with the transition.
In each set you get the 3 tops shown above... and one bottom. All the tops are interchangeable with the same bottom... they grow and change with baby... and if your baby is like Rozz - she might prefer one over the other. Rozz is a BIG fan of stage 3 :) And Mr. Kieran tried one out too! His favorite was stage 2.  Personally - I love them all. They're so easy to clean - no little parts...  just function.  "Engineered to make feeding and handling easier, for both mother and child, the Easy-Grip 3 Stage Feeding System is perfect for beginners. Your little one will find the transition from bottle to cup an easy one with the cup's soft silicone spout, Sport Sipper straw and the unique contour shape that easily fits their small hands. You will be delighted with the transition thanks to Nûby's leak resistant design."
Another top of the line product from Nuby & a must have for all mama's & babies!

Mr. Kieran trying out his new teething toy from Nuby!

Nuby teething toys we're always a big hit in my house with Rozzlyn... but she is kinda past that age now. So when my we met our new friends Amber & Shannon - we were super excited to try out some Nuby goodies on their son Kieran! This lucky little man got to chomp away at the Teethe-eez. "One end of the “fish shaped” Teethe-eez™ feature teething bristles, just like the above Gum-eez™. The whole teether is made of soft curves and multiple textures that gently massage and stimulate your baby’s gums. The Teethe-eez™ is made of 100% soft medical grade silicone."
And let me tell you - he LOVED it... he kept flipping around from end to end... chewing on it from all sides and angles. He also loved to grind his gums against the nubs on the silicone. It was the PERFECT time to try this one out - as that week he had been having a rough few nights and teething was in full force. You wouldn't know it from this picture! He was a happy, drooly little dude!
I have absolutely ZERO complaints and give this simply awesome teething toy 5 stars! Want to get one for yourself?

Nuby Stretch Mark Cream & Firming Butter: Mama Musts!!

I've been looking long and hard to find a good stretchmark/firming cream... It seems they're all really expensive or just don't work. I've always loved the smell of Palmers Cocoa Butter - but it doesn't really seem to do anything for me... and I definitely didn't notice anything "perking up." So when I saw that Nuby had their own line of mama inspired products - I had to join in the fun.

Nuby's Natural Touch Skin Care line is for moms and moms to be... "Nûby’s Natural Touch™ skin care for mothers is specially formulated with you in mind. Our rich emollient butters, creams, and lotions are enriched with natural ingredients like vitamin E, cocoa butter and Lanolin."  When I first started using the stretch mark cream I really noticed a difference right away... it seemed as though they were tightening and lightening up... and let me just say - mine are BAD! And yes - they're my "battle scars" and I've earned them... but I would rather not have to stare them down in the mirror every day...  "Nûby’s Stretch Mark Cream helps prevent and reduce stretch marks with a special combination of Cocoa butter, Vitamin E, Collagen, and Elastin. These essential ingredients moisturize mom’s skin to help it retain its natural elasticity and moisture. Our stretch mark creams are available in three unique formulas:" I will absolutely continue using the stretch mark cream... but my body isn't ALL that bad... some places just need a little "tightening up" if you will...  for those spots - I went with the Firming Butter... and man am I glad that I did... If I HAD TO CHOOSE and could only have one... it would be the firming cream. Its amazing... and I'm not exaggerating. $5.99 - (on sale at Toys R Us right now for $2.98) . If I can convince you to give yourself some love and try it, Ill be a happy mama. This is one thing that is SO affordable and will give you the confidence (and booty) boost that you deserve. 

Almost immediately after putting it on I can feel it going to work... its as if it gets a little tingly... just a little... so you know its working. "Nûby’s Firming Butter is a unique formula specifically designed to restore your body to its natural, original firmness anytime, even after pregnancy or weight loss. The unique combination of Cocoa Butter, Collagen, and Elastin firms and tones while improving skin elasticity and texture. In addition Ginseng and Vitamin E help nourish and rejuvenate tired skin. Co Enzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that stimulates skin cells to tone and smooth the skin. Clinically proven to help increase skin’s firmness in 6 weeks." I've had 3 kids and lost about 4 pounds after Rozzlyn. I weight less now than ever in high school and my body has been through the ringer between losing baby weight plus 40 extra pounds... this cream is helping put *sorry to be frank* but putting my butt and boobs back where they belong for just the low price of

Its POTTY TIME! Nuby Potty Seat Review

It's impossible for me to believe that it is time to start potty training Rozzlyn. SHE IS JUST A BABY!! And by a baby I mean not at all a baby... she is a full on walking, talking, toddler - pooping on the potty. Too much info? Sorry. This is a post about a potty seat - things could get messy. ;)
I should probably start this by saying........ Im sorry Rozzlyn - don't hate me for this when you're 13... I promise I won't (I totally will) pull these pics out to show your first boyfriend. *13? Boyfriend? Ha... Maybe when you're 23* LOVE YOU BABY GIRL!  So Ms. Rozzlyn its a champ at pooping on the potty. I would say in the last few weeks we have had about 15 poops on the potty... and the Nuby Potty Seat has been a HUGE help at all this progress. While I totally want to throw the potty chair in the back of the closet - keep her in diapers forever - and pretend she will always be my baby girl.... I am aware that she must grow up. And the sooner she is out of diapers, the better. So as usual, Nuby to the rescue..."This small Potty Seat by Nûby™ is one easy-to-clean piece. It has been designed so that little boys and little girls can use it comfortably." It is so perfectly sized that Rozzlyn fits on it perfectly - yet it still slips right between our toilet and sink. Though - the color is so awesome I wouldn't really care if it was out in the open either! We snagged the Teal and I love it. Currently, our favorite thing to do is to brush our teeth on the potty. We always start with a clean potty of course... but I feel like it established two great morning habits in one... brushing our teeth... and the necessary morning potty trip. PLUS - brushing her teeth keeps her distracted and sitting their much longer than if I just place her on the potty... she is usually ready to get up after about 5 seconds. If we're lucky enough to get some potty out - I just dump it in the toilet and wipe out the potty with an antibacterial wipe.  SO SO easy... and if it takes more effort that than (which it usually never does) I just wipe it out with some dish soap and a cloth diaper wipe/rag. SO SIMPLE! Highly, HIGHLY recommended if you want a simple potty without all the bells and whistles. We used to have one that played music every time they went potty. Fun - until it stopped working properly and was going off constantly with or without a sucessful potty trip. All that stuff just isn't necessary. Keep it simple - sleek - and stylish with the Nuby Potty Seat.  Available at: www.BuyBabyDirect.com
