Nuby Children's Hangers

All I can say is...... Thank goodness for a durable hanger, that actually keeps my little girl's clothing in place. This product is perfect. The shape of the hanger insures all shirts and dresses keep its (shoulder) shape. I like that the handle can hold her sweaters, jackets, and even her coats without binding or breaking. The neck of the hanger has a little holder that holds T-strap items on the hanger. It literally does not fall off. You can even fold bottoms over the lower part of the hanger and it does not leave a folded line mark on the pants.

The hangers come in a pack of 6 &10 and are BPA free. Now that should make you smile :-)

You can purchase these hangers from the following stores:

What a way to introduce whimsical designs to baby and infant! My daughter used 6-12mths. This cute little plastic pacifier is light-weight and durable. Baby can chew, throw, etc. and it won't crack. My little got a kick out of chewing on her "binky". I think it felt good to her gums. I like the the color and design; hers had a butterfly on it. I think it kept her coming back for more... chewing that is!! She never really sucked the binky, so I was glad that it held together well.

This pacifier (binky) is a has a great air system, meaning it reduces moister and allows air to flow through. Besides, who likes a binky saturated in....... well, you know what I mean. I also liked that the nipple was silicon and had bristles on it. That's great for soothing those gums. Nuby also added their signature inside the nipple, which was a cute little touch.

  • 2 Natural Touch Orthodontic Pacifiers
  • 1 Pacifinder (Pacifier Attachment)

Nuby Safari Chimes

These Safari Chimes™, by Nûby™, are additional interactive toys that blend both fun and function. They feature bright colors, playful sounds, a variety of textures, and fun characters that are sure to captivate your baby's imagination.

This simple toy is too much fun. Its bright colors, grasps the attention of my baby and draws her into playing with it. It is easy to clean and flexible enough to fit onto any baby item; strollers, car seats, cribs, or highchairs. I like to hang the Nuby Safari Chimes onto my daughter's car seat or attach it to her crib. I like that it does not make too much noise if she bumps it while sleeping and if she awakens at night, she can play with it quietly. I think my little girl gets a kick out of chewing on it and hitting it so that it chimes. Occasionally, she throws it on the floor and says, "Uh Oh.”

Another added bonus is that it is easy to chew and the material and threading does not shed. I've washed it and it still holds together with no problem.

Nuby: Non-Drip™ Bottle

Top of the morning to ya!!!

0+ Months  |  Standard Neck  |  11oz / 320ml
This is my review on the Nuby Non-Drip™Bottle. This is actually my second Nuby bottle and I like it a whole lot. This is a cute pink bottle; other bright colors are available. It is also available in 10oz, 11oz, or 7oz.

These Nûby™ Non-Drip™ Bottles are designed to aid in the transition to self feeding. The shape of the bottle makes it easy for baby to grasp and hold on to while feeding themselves. It is also light-weight when filled. The grip is also detachable, so baby can grow into the bottle. My daughter can easily grip either way, but she prefers it without the handle. 

The bottle has great suction and liquids flow smoothly out of the nipple. I've even put a little cereal in her bottle with her milk and it still flows effortlessly.

This bottle is also easy to clean. I did use it in the dishwasher with no problem. They are also 100% BPA free. The Non-Drip™ Nipple has anti-colic valves to reduce the risk of colic and teething nubs to massage baby’s gums.

Here are the added features to this bottle:
  • Teething NubsMassage and stimulate gums
  • No-Spill Design- Prevents spills and reduces leaks
  • Variable Flow- Adjustable for slow, medium and fast flow rates
  • Anti-Colic Air SystemPrevents ingestion of air by baby

My 10mth old loves to throw her bottle on the floor a lot, so this bottle is great and there is very minimal to no spills as it hits the floor. She also has 7 teeth in her mouth and nibbles on the nipple often and it has not had to be replaced. She also will drink anything from her bottle; formula, breast milk, water, or juice.

Go pick up this bottle for your little one. You both will love it!!!!

Nuby Natural Touch: SoftFlex™ Infafeeder™

So, it's official... I'm a Nuby Mommy Blogger and I am super duper excited to apart of the Nuby Family. Now, with that being said, here is my first review. 

Here is the Nuby Natural Touch: SoftFlex™ Infafeeder™. This bottle is great for your little feeder. It's a soft hygienic silicon bottle that assists feeding baby by gently squeezing the body of the bottle. Just as your baby gets used to feeding from a nipple, they now have to move to first solids. The SoftFlex™ Infafeeder™ offers a fully interchangeable solution with your bottles and can be used to introduce babies to their first foods.

The BPA free SoftFlex™ bottle allows you to squeeze the right amount of baby food onto the silicone spoon, which is soft on sensitive gums.

I was pleasantly surprised with this bottle. It is a creative and unique way to feed your growing baby.  I am a mommy who does not like when I feed my baby and it becomes a little messy. This is an alternative method. Just put the baby food in and squeeze the bottle. It only takes a small squeeze and the baby is eating before you know it. In addition, it is anti-colic base, and I can say that my baby had no colic issues, while feeding from this bottle.

My little one trying to feed herself

I have not had any problems with food getting stuck when exiting the opening of the spoon. It is also quick to prepare and easy to clean. Certain foods may stain the bottle, but it is not a deal breaker. The older your little one gets, the more likely he will want to squeeze and feed himself. Another added bonus is that if your baby is teething, he will want to chew on the spoon. Mine did and it soothed her itchy gums, while she ate her food. 

I would recommend this bottle for individuals looking for a cute, innovative way to feed their little one. 
Trust me!!! You will definitely turn heads when using this bottle around others.

So Far, So Good!

Well Mommy School is going strong. It's now Week 1 and the girls and I are moving ahead. They have learned about Verbs, Adding 2 and 1 digits numbers, tenth place and ones place, weather, seasons, exercising, and they are increasing their vocabulary. Both of them received an A+ on their spelling test this past Friday. We also went on a field trip to Lowe's Build and Grow, our local city square, and Chick-fil-A. I also stopped by the library so that they can participate in their reading programs. In addition, I'm finding more websites that follow the Common Core Standards and websites that are geared toward education.

The following are websites I've used and will continue to use:

Below are pictures from our 1st week of Mommy School.

Honestly, I am pooped. This week VBS (Vacation Bible School) is being held at one of our neighborhood churches and the girls will be there faithfully everyday. In the meantime, I will be trying my best to rest, but that hasn't been going so well.

Stay tuned. I see another field trip in the making.

Mommy School!!!!!

So, for the past couple of years, I have been conducting summer school in my home. It consists of my 3 girls and it is called "Mommy School." I come from a long line of educators. (I for one didn't think education was for me, therefore I my post graduate studies consisted of a MBA in Healthcare). But somehow, I am doing what I'd never thought I would do; TEACH!!! Who knew!!!!! 

I must say that my girls love it. The school is only conducted in the summer months. Since, I am a stickler for organization, structure, and schedules, I just could not have my girls doing nothing for the entire summer. I also wanted them to continue learning, but somehow make it fun for them. So in the Summer of 2011, I began "Mommy School." Every weekday morning, my girls are required to get up and get completely dress (teeth brushed, clothes put on, & shoes), eat breakfast (which is prepared by myself or they independently fix cereal), and put on their school shirts. Yep, we are in the process of designing schools shirts. These shirts are to be worn every school day and on field trips. 

The back of our T-shirts

As I stated above, my family are educators, so it seems befitting to have their assistance. In teaching, I follow the The Common Core State Standards. The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. I also use Google and Bing to find free printable worksheets that are coherent to the Common Core State Standards. Mommy School's curriculum consists of the following: ELA (English, Language Arts, & Writing), Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Music, Home Economics, Arts & Crafts, Technology, Health, and PE (Physical Education). I also include Movie & Popcorn Fridays and of course Field Trips. Our field trips, which takes place during the weekday or weekend, range from going to swim parks, the library, and outdoor parks, to free events for children like Lowe's Build and Grow or Homedepot's Free Kids Workshop. Grocery store visits or errands can be made into a field trip as well. You just have to use your imagination and be creative. 

I am so excited to be doing this. I treat my classroom and students as if it were normal school. Raising hands, asking to do something, lunch, school nurse, custodian, and principal. Everyone is involved and takes their jobs as if it were open to the public (although I think this make be a great idea in the near future). Here is the Mommy School Volunteer Staff and Students Roster for Summer 2013:

Mommy School Roster
Mommy School's motto is "Every Parent Can Teach." I believe this whole hardheartedly. I have learned to be more patient, kind, understanding, and I thrive on the fact that I am doing my part as a parent here at home. I believe that it is not just up to professional educators to teach my children. It is also up to me as a mother to do what I can to make learning attainable for my little ones. And besides, it also helps the educators out when school returns. I am trying to do what I can now as a SAHM, because who knows when I will return back to work. I also want my children to have lasting memories as children. 

Below is our school schedule. I do it weekly; something like Lesson Plans. Every week changes. The following calendar is for the final schedule w/o June 3rd- June 7th:

At the end of each week, I monitor the children's progress via weekly log. The following is my weekly log:

Oh, I almost forgot. I have two student volunteers (my nieces). My older niece will be assisting me full-time and I will give her volunteer hours. This is the sign-in and sign-out sheet that is used. 

Here are just a few photos of the students (my babies)  at work. I also forgot to mention that I also have a nursery for my 5mth old. So, of course I included her as well.

Just getting started
