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?

Multitasking with Nuby!

It's no secret that I am am a pretty busy mom... so its safe to say that I have become a multitasking queen. We are always mixing play time with learning time... or work time with play time... or now thanks to Nuby, Bath time with learning time...

Recently we got our hands on the Nuby Bath Tub Foam Animals and they have added tons of fun for Rozzlyn. She loves sticking them up to the wall as well as watching them float around in the water... Toys like these are great for teaching her new things without it being forced. We talk about the colors, the shapes, and the names of the characters. Her favorite is by far the "blue whale" With the "star" coming in a close second.
"The Nuby foam bath animals bring underwater creatures to your little ones bath time. The characters float in the water and when wet will stick to the bathtub wall providing countless hours of bath time fun. The fun colorful characters will delight and amuse your little one while stimulating their senses."
I always struggle trying to find something negative to say for an honest review - but I truly don't have anything. These are great and a great price - and BPA free as well. I would recommend them to anyone!

Wow! What a month!

 Let me give you just a tiny glimpse into my last month... my office flooded - forcing me to RUSH/EMERGENCY pack all my fabric, machines, etc. and move out in 24 hours. My insurance deductible was higher than the damage - forcing me to pay it all out of pocket as well as losing sales and getting way backed up while I couldn't work. It was a MESS to say the least... it still is - but we're getting back on track... My mom and step dad got married in Vegas - it was AMAZING, but another week off right after the flooding... THEN to top it off, my son had surgery last friday... requiring time off, and a recovery we are still working through... needless to say - Im a bit off track and the blog has suffered. BUT - I am here now and back with another Nuby review!
Nothing like some fun Nuby stuff to put a smile on my face - tonight I threw (ok, not literally) all the kids in the bath tub... as we filled it up and dumped the toy bag, I realized that all but one were from Nuby. Since becoming a Nuby Mommy Blogger, I have the opportunity to try so many great products from Nuby, and have quickly realized that they are our favorite. Over time the random bath toys got tossed and replaced with high quality Nuby toys. All of which get played with from the baby to the 6 year old.

The Nuby Bath Time Clock & Thermometer is more of a kid friendly mommy toy though... and one that I happily used to prove to my husband that the bath water was too hot. I couldn't wait for it to show up in the mail... "The Nûby™ Bath Time Clock & Thermometer can help keep bath time safe and fun. It's unique 3-in-1 design incorporates a clock, a timer that counts up or down, and a thermometer that displays in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Not only that, but the Bath Time Clock & Thermometer floats and will alert you if the water is too hot or too cold. It also automatically counts up when the sensor contacts the water so you know how long your baby has been in the bath!" Once we figured out how to change it from Celsius to Fahrenheit, using it was a breeze. It has been an awesome little feature that is just always in the tub now... it does all the work for me and I can easily notice the temp without having to do anything. And since its kid friendly, it doesn't matter if they play with it...

Nuby Review: Tear Free Rinse Pail

I had spent some time going through Nuby products and reading reviews and I was super excited to try this one out... the Nuby Tear Free Rinse Pail.
Rozzlyn is 18 months old now and like most kids, doesn't really love water in her eyes... What's funny - is my middle son, Zavery (5) hates it even more... So as great as this works for Rozzlyn, its even more perfect for Zavery. He says, "I hate when soap gets in my eyes because it hurts and makes my eyes hot." The Tear Free Rinse Pail has been great at assisting us with bathtime. "It features a comfortable grip for mom, a deep, slender base for easy filling in shallow water and a unique tear-free edge. The tear-free edge is soft and contoured so it can be gently placed against your baby's skin to help prevent water from running into your baby's eyes while rinsing their hair." Its a must have in the tub. The only problem I have it that it can be a little tricky to get it positioned in the right spot. 

Example: See left... If it isn't pushed up against the skin when you pull up to dump the water it will drip...
However - if you raise it up a bit on their heads, and push the silicone firmly but gently against their skin it creates a nice little seal - preventing the water from passing through.

Overall - another great Nuby product! How could I ever be disappointed when they make so many of great products.

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
