Review #66: Holmes Ultrasonic Humidifier

Every nursery eventually ends up with a humidifier. After going through 3 different humidifiers we found the Holmes Ultrasonic Humidifier shaped like a bear. This simple humidifier has a half gallon removable tank with handle, which is incredibly easy to fill. It has a variable knob and when running you can actually see the mist coming out. It also has a 10-hour runtime on high, which does last most of the night for my son. I do wish the run time was closer to 12 or 14 hours but since this humidifier does not require any filters and is easy to fill, it is my favorite.

Review #65: Vtech Alphabet Activity Cube

The Vtech Alphabet Activity Cube is an awesome all-around toy. All 4 sides and the top are developed to be fully useable. This cube includes 13 double-sided blocks, featuring all 26 letters. The cubes are stackable and nestle into the top of the cube, they are also easily stored via a happy faced storage side of the cube. On a second side of the cube, there is a spot to place the letter where it will read the letter & the sound. This side also features a play phone and interactive buttons. The third side is a drop down maze which the letter blocks can fall through. The last side has gears that turn, doors that open, things to slide and a mirror. This is a wonderfully well-rounded toy to keep any toddler or preschooler entertained.

Review #64: Fisher Price Code-A-Pillar

The Fisher price code-a-pillar is an awesome toy for kids ages 3 and up. My husband and I both love playing with it just as much as the kids. The starter set comes with the head and 8 segments. Each segment tells the codeapillar what to do. By rearranging the segments kids can make the codeapillar go in different paths. Each set also includes a start and end pad for children to try to preplan their codeapillars route. The 8 segments that come with the starter set are two right turns, two left turns, 3 straights and 1 music. This is lots of fun and learning for the whole family!

Review #63:Huggies OverNites

Huggies disposable OverNites diapers have been our go-to overnight diapers for years. Their extra absorbency helps protect the babies skin as well as keeping them dry or up to 12 hours. The waistband has an extra strong elastic to avoid leaky blowouts. Put all these features together and my son gets a nice long dry sleep!

Review #62: Tula Blankets

We have quite a few tula blankets and they are all amazing. They are lightweight, soft & cute. The simple lightweight design makes them easy to keep in the diaper bag, use in the car, or for baby to sleep with in the summer. My son is a "blanket-baby" and he always wants to have a blanket with him, therefore we never leave the house without a Tula Blanket

My son always is enjoying tub time with his Flounder Soapsox. This "toy" is an amazing hybrid of loofa, stuffed animal & tub toy! With tons of awesome characters, its a must have for all kids!

Review #58: Baby Trend Sit N Stand LX

We purchased the Sit N Stand stroller to use for my son & my nephew who are only 18 months apart in age. They are frequently babysat by grandparents together & we like to spend time together when we can. Overall, this stroller has definitely been great. My older daughter is now 7 & still likes to take a seat occasionally on big trips. It is easy to fold, has a sun canopy for the front seat, seatbelts for both seats, dual parent cupholders and a parent storage bin.

Review #57: Step2 Sand & Water Fun Farm

Step2 Sand & Water Fun Farm

We purchased this water table over 5 years ago when my oldest was two. It is still going strong in our family & has now been passed on for years of use! Although there are lots of pieces, the concept of the farm with the trains, animals, tunnel and bridges has always been well loved!

Review #56: Infantino Wiggle Worm Activity Gym

Infantino Wiggle Worm Activity Gym

My son was a huge fan of this Infantino Wiggle Worm Activity Gym! It was very simple, had great toys that entertained him and was full of bright colors. My favorite feature was that it was able to be zipped flat closed for easy storage. Overall, a great baby gear item!

Review #55: Bumbo


We received this bumbo seat as a hand-me-down when my son was born. I never had one with my first but I was happily impressed with it. Though it is one of the short-lived baby items, it was definitely liked by PJ & convenient to have around when we were playing things we didn't want him grabbing at.

Review #54: J.L. Childress Bottle Cooler Bag

J.L. Childress Bottle Cooler Bag

I received this J.L. Childress Bottle Cooler Bag as a baby shower gift. It is wonderful for when you need to take a bottle of formula or milk with you for a quick trip. With an easy to grab handle & a small size it is easy to take on the go!

Review #53: Cosco Scenera NEXT

Cosco Scenera NEXT

The Cosco Scenera NEXT is our "extra" seat. This seat is used for grandparents & dads cars as well as when we fly. The NEXT rearfaces from 5-40lbs and forward faces from 22-40lbs(must be 2 years old). It is a very simple seat, with a 5 point harness and a detachable cupholder. This seat is easy to clean, incredibly lightweight & able to be used on planes. It can be installed at a very upright position once the child is sitting independently, therefore taking up very little room.

Review #52 Harmony Youth Booster

Harmony Youth Booster

This is probably one of the most basic backless booster seats on the market, but it does the trick! My husband's truck has a very small backseat and this lightweight booster fits my daughter wonderfully, positions the belt at the correct spot & doesn't take up much room when not in use. Easy & simple are the best terms to describe this one!

Review #51: Munchkin Powder Formula Dispenser Combo Pack

Munchkin Powder Formula Dispenser Combo Pack

We purchased this set on a whim while at the store buying formula. We had forgotten the formula when leaving the house, so we stopped at the store for a new tub & I grabbed this dispenser so I wouldn’t need to bring the tub with us all day. Little did I know that the one serving add on part would be one of my favorite things. Going for a walk around the block? Just bring the 1 serving. Headed to the playground? Only need 1 serving. It was so tiny and so handy I was very happy to have it on many occasions!

Review #50:MAM Self Sterilizing Anti-Colic bottle

MAM Self Sterilizing Anti-Colic bottle

We received the MAM Self Sterilizing Anti-Colic bottle in a giveaway bag last summer. I had never tried one before and I have to say, although it does have more parts than I typically like, it is still quite easy to keep disinfected and doesn't leak. PJ immediately liked the bottle, and it's a perfect size to toss in the diaper bag.
