I love babywearing at this point you are all aware. So when I find baby wearing gear that is gorgeous I get so excited. I love it when my babywearing paraphernalia goes beyond the generic neutral colors. Aren’t you ever in the mood to just wear something fun. Well Rockin Baby Slings carry such slings. They also have the neutral baby slings and pouches you wear with anything but they also have the amazing slings that you see and say “I want that!” In addition to making ring slings they also make pouches. And not just any pouches but gorgeous pouches. I just adore Rockin Baby Slings color combinations. I tried out one of the Rockin Baby Slings and they are very comfortable. And Mikey gave this one his two slobbery thumbs up. He loves riding along in his sling. And there is nothing more I love then that gorgeous little baby face looking up at me so content.

Here is some info from the Rockin Baby Site

Benefits of Baby Wearing
Babywearing has been around as long as humans have been making babies because it works!
Here are just a few reasons to start wearing your baby:

Happy Babies
Babywearing reduces crying and fussiness up to 43% during the day and 51% at night according to a report in Pediatrics Journal.
Better Understanding
Babywearing helps you and your baby communicate better. You become more sensitive to baby’s needs and cues, which means that your baby will cry less because his or her needs are being met before crying is necessary.
Convenient
Wearing your baby is convenient – you don’t have to worry about narrow aisles, stairs or crowds, and it isn’t heavy or awkward like car seat carriers. Slinging also lulls baby to sleep.
Smart Babies
Babies who are worn are more frequently in the quiet-alert state, which is optimal for learning. They are also immersed in your world, seeing and hearing all that you do and interact with, at voice and eye level so they can learn the subtleties of language and expression.
Hands Free
Babywearing liberates your arms so that you can get things done, like work or care for older siblings, while bonding with and soothing your baby.
Babies Cry Less
Babies who are carried cry less, smile more, spit up less, have less colic and bond better. That means you will also be happier!
Easier Discipline
Wearing your baby creates a deeper connection between parent and child. Research shows that well-connected children are more secure, settled, considerate, sociable, cooperative, adaptable, affectionate and willing to share.
Healthy Babies
Babies who are worn thrive. Because of the effects of motion and close contact babies who are worn spend less time crying, and more time growing and thriving.
Great for Breastfeeding
It is a private and nurturing environment for nursing, and you are immediately able to respond to baby’s hunger cues wherever you are, so baby doesn’t get stressed or upset.

Baby Bond Nursing Accessory Review and Giveaway

True Random Number Generator Min: 1Max: 104
Result: 1 Shell

I love finding new products and the Baby Bond Nursing Accessory is one of those new products that I just love. The Baby Bond Nursing Accessory is such a great idea instead of covering the baby you just cover yourself. I had so many issues when Kaia was a baby with her throwing off the cover when I was feeding her. She just did not like to be covered. So this nursing accessory is just great for that. You wear it like a sash it is simple and easy to use and fits so easily in the diaper bag. It rolls perfectly into its own self storage pouch that is part of the wrap.
Baby Bond also puts their philanthropy at a forefront in their business they regularly Donate to charitable organizations. This such a great company with a great idea. I love my new baby bond. It is the perfect gift for a nursing mom or a mom to be.

Here is some info from the site http://babybondnursing.com/:
BabyBond™ nursing accessories cover mom, not her baby. Mom is able to maintain her modesty without leaving the room. Baby remains uncovered benefiting from the infinite opportunity to make eye contact, interact, and communicate. After all, dining is social.
Nurse. Converse, Bond.

BabyBond Original™ is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Belly & back remain covered with your own shirt. Built-in 9 x 12″ double layer terry velour burp cloth. Stores in matching pouch.
100% Cotton. Machine washable.
Made in USA.
BabyBond Couture™ is adjustable creating a custom fit as your body changes after baby arrives. A hybrid between nursing top and belly band, it can be worn to nurse from the top or the bottom of your shirt so it works with your entire wardrobe. When worn like a sash, it functions like a nursing top. When worn like a belt, it functions like a belly band. Rolls up into self-storing pouch.
100% Cotton. Machine washable.

Sleeping Baby Productions Ring Sling Review and Giveaway

I think everyone is aware of my baby wearing fixation/ obsession. I will let you call it what you want. But if you have read any of my previous posts or know me at all you are aware of my love of babywearing. Yes my name is Debra and I love Babywearing. Be it my 4 month old son or my 2 year old daughter I love wearing them both. And guess what, they love it too. You can ask anyone who knows me my son very rarely cries. If you don’t wear your baby you should honestly think about trying it. I am so happy that I did and so are my children. With my ongoing pursuit of the perfect babywearing paraphernalia I came across the Sleeping Baby Ring Sling.

This ring sling is absolutely amazing. I love it, it is so soft yet breathable the material used is incredible. And the ease of use is remarkable. I decided to try this out for a day. We ran errands and honestly this ring sling was the easiest of my baby carriers when it comes to getting the baby in and out. It was so quick and easy it made everything so much faster going into the store to go shopping I put Mikey in he faced out (which he loved) and I was able to shop get everything done so much faster because I was not dealing with snaps, buckles, wraps or anything else. While I truly do love my other babywearing gear, I have to vote for this one definitely when it comes to ease of use and getting the baby in and out quickly.

Next we went to Kaia’s mommy and me gymnastics class. It was Mikey’s time to nurse and this too was so simple, I was able to turn him in and use the tail of the ring sling to discreetly feed Mikey while still staying with Kaia as she did her gymnastics. I was able to feed him without having to pull out the nursing cover or anything else, so definite bonus points for that. Sleeping Baby Productions ring slings are made wonderfully the fabric and craftsmanship are truly remarkable, which make the slings themselves so comfortable.

Please check out The Sleeping baby Productions Gallery to get a look at some of the amazing slings she makes http://www.sleepingbaby.net/gallery.php

Buy it: Got to Sleeping baby Productions http://www.sleepingbaby.net/ and purchase a magnificent Ring Sling

Win It: One extremely lucky reader will get to win their very own Sleeping baby Productions Linen Ring Sling in their choice of size and color. Just visit the SBP site http://www.sleepingbaby.net/ and tell me which color you would like to win

Goodbyn Review and Giveaway

True Random Number Generator Min: 1Max: 229
Result: 31 Jenni Corcoran

Lunchboxes have come a long way since I was little. They are not a simple box that things get hap hazardly thrown into. I remember going to school and taking out my lunchbox only to find my PB&J sandwich smooched on the bottom of my lunchbox along with my banana, my snacks also an unforgiving mess being either crushed or spilling out. If I had yogurt that day it usually popped open to make everything a sopping mess. Plus everything always ended up being penetrated by the pungent aroma of my banana making everything slightly banana flavored.

Now that is not a worry with the Goodbyn. I love this lunchbox. It has six fantastic compartments that protect your food from heaven forbid mixing. Something that is completely unacceptable to my two year old daughter. And they are so cute my daughter was so excited to decorate hers with stickers as to make it her very own. I truly think this lunchbox is amazing. It is for school age children 5+ so holds more food then my two year old can eat. (They are in the making for a preschooler size Goodbyn) The Goodbyn is perfect for the two of us. I pack a lunch for both of us on playdates anyway. So with the Goodbyn it’s the same just with less washing of containers. You can just stick your Goodbyn in the dishwasher to get it clean. And you don’t have to buy sandwich baggies something we cut out of our budget awhile ago anyway. And with no need for plastic baggies or juice boxes the Goodbyn can save you $190 per kid.
Here is some info from the Goodbyn website:
A. easy-to-open earskid-tested intuitively-designed animal ears make for easy opening.
E. side containers great for dips, sauces, vegetables, crackers, nuts, berries, or dried fruit.
B. built-in handle easy for both kids and parents to carry.
F. 8.5-ounce bottle eliminates need for juice boxes.
C. top container perfect for leftovers, apples, oranges, even a banana!
G. sticker set each goodbyn comes with three sheets of stickers so the kids can make each lunchbox their own!
D. bottom container fits stacked sandwich halves, bagel, pasta salad, chips, yogurt or cereal.

Pack like you mean it. It stinks when your sandwich tastes like a banana. Or when your chicken korma tastes like your sweet rice roll. Goodbyn keeps tastes (and moisture) separate. Lunch tastes like it’s supposed to.

Feed, rinse, repeat. Grime isn’t fun, especially when you put your lunch in it. Our priority was to make Goodbyn dishwasher-safe, so we can keep our kid’s lunches clean – inside and out.


Stick it. Love it. Raise your hand if you like stickers. Who doesn’t? Each Goodbyn lunchbox comes with three sheets of hundreds of stickers: alphabets, body parts, allergy labels… you name it, you stick it.

Carry on. When things fit seamlessly into your life it’s a breath of fresh air, right? Goodbyn has a carrying handle, can easily be slipped into a backpack, or fit into a cubby hole at school.


Go on. And on. And on. Reincarnation is one of our favorite topics, especially when we’re talking about lunchboxes. One material for one reason: it can be recycled and reborn as something else.

So who wants a Goodbyn? I do! I do! I do!

Buy it: Go to the Goodbyn site at http://www.goodbyn.com/goodbyn/buy.aspx
Win it: I have a Goodbyn lunchbox to giveaway to one lucky reader. How can you win this marvelous lunchbox? By visiting the Goodbyn website at http://www.goodbyn.com/goodbyn/buy.aspx then leave me a comment telling me which is your favorite color Goodbyn.
