Diaper Dawgs Review

I love almost everything about cloth diapering. They are echo friendly, chemical free and super adorable!
Cloth diapers may be cute, until they do their job, and we all know what that is.

When handling dirty diapers, I found it gross having to touch them with my bare hands. Trying my best not to get any poo on my hands while tossing a dirty diaper into the pail. 
With Diaper Dawgs, I no longer have that problem.
Diaper Dawgs was founded by a mom who designs poop protection products for phenomenal parents, like myself.
Diaper Dawgs sent me a pack of Milo & Buddy (blue & green) dogs to review.
These adorable little guys are flexible, slip on silicone barriers that guards fingers against pee & poo during a cloth diaper cleaning.
The inner grooves make sure your dirty diaper wont slip through your fingers.
This feature is great for holding your diaper while using a diaper sprayer. 
Diaper Dawgs remind me of little oven mitts. 
They are the perfect size for anyone's fingers. 
With Diaper Dawgs, I now love everything about cloth diapering!
No more worrying about messy hands, dirty finger nails or gagging your brains out.
Adopt a pair to come live with you.
Diaper Dawgs make handling dirty diapers easy and fun!

Diaper Dawgs Wipes Review

Not only do I love cloth diapers, but I have another love for cloth wipes. Let me tell you all about my new favorites! 
Diaper Dawgs, "Heavy Dooty" Cloth Wipes are like no other. 

Diaper Dawgs was founded by a mom who designs poop protection products for phenomenal parents.
Diaper Dawgs sent me one pack of their Heavy Dooty Cloth Wipes to review. 
These pack of 6 wipes are super soft and absorbent. They are made of bamboo terry fabric. 

So what makes these wipes different than any other? 
The Heavy Dooty Wipes have a sewn in pocket on one side.
I love this awesome feature! The pocket helps prevent your hands and fingers from getting poop all over them while you wipe down your baby's bum.
It's genius! 
One thing that I love about Diaper Dawgs Heavy Dooty Wipes is that they are made in the US! Not many diapers and wipes are.
Not only do they have to be "diaper wipes" but they can also be used for many other things, such as cleaning wipes, face wipes, booger wipes, and even washcloths for bath time.
Diaper Dawgs, Heavy Dooty Wipes are the softest wipes that I have in my cloth wipes stash. They  stand out like no other! I think everyone should own a pack of these amazing wipes!

Pumpin Pal Review & GIveaway

For some moms, breastfeeding can be hard. Pumping breast milk can be even harder.
When my son turned 2 weeks old, I started pumping after every feeding to help build a milk stash for my freezer. I found that pumping was really uncomfortable for me. But thanks to Pumpin' Pal's Super Shields, I can now pump pain free.
Pumpin' Pal designs and manufactures innovative breast pumping accessories to make pumping more comfortable and enjoyable.
Created by a dad, who wanted to support his wife with exclusively pumping.

I reached out to Pumpin' Pal explaining my problem I had with pumping.
Pumpin' Pal sent me a set of their Super Shields to review.
They come in three sizes: Medium, Large & XL and work with most breast pumps.
So, what makes Pumpin' Pal's Super Shield so different from standard shields?
They are an angled flange, which is what makes them so comfortable. Super Shields mimic the latch of your baby, where the standard shield only allows the nipple to move while pumping, which can cause the pain I was experiencing.  

With the poor latch of a standard shield, I was not pumping as much milk as I do with Pumpin' Pal.
Using Standard shields, I would only pump between 1oz-2oz, which stressed me out so much. I felt like I was not pumping enough to build a stash for my baby. But when using Pumpin' Pal's Super Shields, I am able to pump an ounce or two more! I also noticed that my milk flows soother using the Super Shields. 

Benefits to using Super Shields
  • Eliminates construction of milk ducts
  • Reduces the irritation to the nipple area
  • Aids in a prevention of mastitis and other breast infections
I wish all breast pumps came with Pumpin' Pal Super Shields! They are amazing and I plan on telling every nursing mother I know about them. I highly recommend the Super Shields by Pumpin' Pal.

Nuroo Swaddler Review

Like my little man, a lot of newborns love to be swaddled right after birth. Some babies even prefer to be swaddled all the time. I felt like I was the only mom in the world that could never figure out how to swaddle my babies in a receiving blanket. I would swaddle my baby nice and tight in a blanket and they would still manage to wiggle there way out and wake themselves up. 
I was thrilled when the Nuroo Swaddler came into our lives! 

Nuroo sent me their Nuroo Swaddler to review on my newborn.
Not only is the Nuroo Swaddler super easy to swaddle baby in but it is also the only swaddle you will need from birth till when baby rolls. 
(front of the swaddler)
Super Soft Stretchy Fabric is breathable to prevent overheating. 
Has a flexible Velcro fastener that helps prevent baby from falling out of the swaddle and helps give a snug fit.
(back of the swaddler)
Has wide legs pockets so baby can easily move and flex legs freely.
Is the only swaddler with three sizes in one to fit your baby just right!
Size 1 pocket(birth-18") Size 2 pocket(18"-24") and Size 3(24"-28")

Here's How It Works!

Can't you tell he loves it? 
My baby can now sleep soundly with the Nuroo Swaddler!
If you are like me and have a hard time figuring out how to swaddle your baby or looking for something to fit your baby to the extent then I highly recommend the Nuroo Swaddler

Nuroo Pocket Review

For years and years, it has been proven that skin-to-skin contact creates incredible benefits for you and your baby. 
Regulating body temperature, enhances immune system, increases milk production and reducing the risk for postpartum depression are just some of the benefits from Kangaroo Care (skin-to-skin).

With all the amazing benefits from skin-to-skin contact, I knew right away I wanted to do as much skin-to-skin with my new baby once he was born. But I wondered how it would be possible to do kangaroo care with my newborn as much as I wanted to, but then also be taking care of my two year old at the same time. 
I just can't be laying around all day with my newborn on my chest. My toddler would be into everything, if that was the case. But thanks to Nuroo, it is possible to be able to have skin to skin contact with your baby and be able to do your daily routine.

Nuroo fosters the bond between mom and baby. Mom invented and owned company, who were inspired by their children, have learned the benefits of keeping baby close to respond to their needs. 

I have had the privilege to review the Nuroo Pocket.
The Nuroo Pocket is the only babywearing shirt that offers full coverage and mobility for moms practicing Skin-to-Skin Contact with their babies.
For Pre + Full Term Babies up to 3-15lbs. 
The Nuroo Pocket doubles as a hands free newborn carrier.
I was sent this gorgeous teal color!

Here's How it Works!
The Cross and Huge closure provides a custom fit as your body changes and your baby grows.

No wrapping, tying or knotting. 
The fabric is super soft and breathable. 
Very comfortable
Easy to put on with baby
I love the Nuroo Pocket
The bond I have with my baby being skin-to-skin with our Nuroo Pocket is remarkable!
It is one of our favorite newborn must haves! Was my go to when I couldn't get baby to sleep or to settle down. I am able to have skin-to-skin with my new baby and chase my toddler around at the same time. 
I recommenced the Nuroo Pocket any new mom!

Mrs.Patel's Fenugreek Bars

After having my first son, I struggled with nursing and maintaining a milk supply. After 3 months of nursing, my supply dropped tremendously. I became stressed out about the whole situation and gave up on breastfeeding all together after 5 months. 
Recently, I gave birth to my second son. I was worried about my supply dropping again. Soon after, Mrs.Patel's contacted me about their products. I am now confident in maintaining a good milk supply thanks to Mrs.Patel's.
Mrs. Patel's are products made for nursing mothers, mother who have recently given birth, those experiencing difficulties with their milk supply and wanting to maintain their supply.

Mrs.Patel's offers three delicious products: Fenugreek Bars, Milk Water Tea and Munch Crunch. They are based on the tenets of Ayurveda (a system of traditional medicine native to India) they have been used by nursing mother in India for thousands of years.

Mrs.Patel's sent me a box of their Fenugreek Bars to review. 
I was able to try out the combo box that contains all three flavors Mrs.Patel's offers, which are regular, chocolate and peanut butter.
These hand made bars are made with pure fenugreek flour, white poppy seeds that will help you lactate, Ghee and coconut that enhance the quality of your breastmilk, peepmarul and powdered gum, that enhance postpartum healing.
Each Bar contains the rough equivalent of 2 capsules of Fenugreek
 Each box comes with 12 bars.
I have a hard time taking and swallowing any kind of pills, so I was happy that these Fenugreek bars were introduced to me! No more worrying about swallowing Fenugreek Pills.
The bars almost look like a granola bar, they taste pretty good too.
All three flavors are yummy, but my personal favorite has to be chocolate! 
 You take one-two bars per day. I noticed an increment by day 6 of taking them. 
You can store them in the cabinets or the refrigerator. I found that they taste even better when they are cold.
I Recommend Mrs. Patel's Fenugreek Bars to any nursing mommy!  

Want to try these yummy bars and increase your milk supply? Mrs.Patel's offers Mamas 20% off their first order from the website. Use Code "FIRSTORDER" at the checkout.
They also have a loyalty program for regular customers where you get 15% off all your orders after your 3rd order.
