BottomZz Up Potty Training Tool Kit Review
Traditional potty training can be time consuming, messy, expensive and stressful (and that’s just for the parents)!!? Save your sanity, your wallet and the environment with the revolutionary NEW potty training system from BottomZz Up!

How is it different? BottomZz Up is the only potty training system that allows toddlers to feel the discomfort of their accidents! The 100% cotton potty training underwear features proprietary technology that lets kids feel wet when they are wet, while trapping the pee to prevent leaks and messy clean ups. Perfect for families on-the-go, BottomZz Up offers the consistency, routine and encouragement kids need, day and night, home or out on the town.

The simple, all in one BottomZz Up Potty Training Tool Kit includes everything parents need to smoothly transition a toddler to big kid underpants with Encouragement, Participation and Celebration!

This honestly is the absolute best way to potty train kids successfully. I have potty trained hundreds of kids, no joke. I was a Preschool Teacher for over 10 years and in that time I worked primarily with 2,3, and 4 year olds. I have never and will never recommend pullups. I know their are people who swear by them but I do not. It takes longer to potty train kids, they aren’t good for the environment, and most kids just pee in them because they can;t feel the difference anyway. Kids need to feel the discomfort of having soiled clothing so that they can understand cause and effect and how their bodies are functioning. Pullups absorb what goes into them leaving a child to feel relatively dry that is why it usually takes much longer to potty train using them. I always recommended padded underwear. It was not a perfect solution but it was a solution. Children learned very quickly using this technique. Although it was messy and we went through a lot of outfits. BottomZz Up solves this problem. While your child will feel wet their clothing will not get wet. This is the best solution I have seen to the Potty Training Dilemma. I will be recommending it to all the families of the children I help potty train. My only recommendation to BottomZz Up would be to offer the  underwear  in different sizes. Kids come in different sizes so having size 2,3 and 4 available would help accommodate everyone.
Complete Starter Kit Includes:

・ 3 Pairs of BottomZz Up potty training underwear

・ 6 Absorbent inserts

・ 1 Washable travel bag

・ 1 Colorful reward chart

・ 1 Month supply of stickers

・ 1 Graduation certificate

・ 100% Cotton and Machine washable

Entenmann’s National Donut Day Review

The sweetest holiday of them all is here, NATIONAL DONUT DAY is Friday, June 3rd and Entenmann’s wants YOU to celebrate wherever you are!

For the sixth consecutive year, Entenmann’s & The Salvation Army are partnering to celebrate National Donut Day and the rich heritage behind it! To Celebrate in 2016, Entenmann’s is rolling our the NEW Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Party Sprinkled Donut, an iconic treat made just for National Donut Day 2016!

As a part of the National Donut Day festivities, Entenmann’s is hosting a “Win Free Donuts for a Year” Facebook Sweepstakes, awarding 10 Grand Prize winners one year of free Entenmann’s Donuts. In addition, 100 of those who enter, will be selected to win National Donut Day Party Pack Prizes, which include everything they need to throw their own National Donut Day party at home! For every consumer (fan or not) that enters the Facebook Sweeps, $1 will be donated to The Salvation Army, up to $35,000!
National Donut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending, home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines. With limited resources, these treats were fried, only seven at a time. The Salvation Army’s Ensign, Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance, cleverly thought of frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets. Approximately 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to American soldiers in France, starting in 1917 during WWI. Entenmann’s ® Bakery produces more than 780 million donuts a year to keep up with the demands of Entenmann’s donut lovers nationwide. The Rich Frosted Donut has been Entenmann’s ® #1 seller since its introduction in 1973. The Salvation Army is located in more than 120 countries worldwide. In 2015, nearly 30 million Americans received assistance from The Salvation Army’s 3,500 officers,60,700 employees and 3.5 million volunteers.


Lassig Car Backseat Organizer Review

Its Summer time and we are going on several road trips even on the five minute rides to the grocery store my kids can be a bit unbearable so we have decided to get organized. Instead of hearing my kids complain about how they are thirsty or need a snack, a toy, tissues, or any of the various immediate necessaries they declare that are unavailable at the moment, where I must go searching on a hunt for said item. We will have it all available within reach we organized for them to have as needed. Instead of hearing screaming that they need their favorite book “Where is it?” I can say look in your organizer. I had the kids pack their own organizers so that they had the items they wanted. I of course checked and made sure all the necessities were there. These organizers really are life savers for long road trips and even short ones too.
The Car Wrap-to-Go organizers are available in various styles that are attractive to boys and girls equally they offer pure traveling comfort. These useful ‘tour escorts’ will be attached to the backside of a car seat so that children have everything within reach. Whether toys, cuddly toy, crackers or beverages, everything will fit in one of the several compartments that are equipped with zipper or hook and loop fastener. Thereby the stylish accessory caters perfectly for the needs of children and assures a smooth and quiet trip for parents at the same time.
