Walgreens Well Beginnings Diapers

I can't say enough good things about these diapers! We tested size 4. The diapers were thin which is good for throwing the the diaper bag. My question was "OK thin but do they really hold the pee"? Honestly they did! We have gone through almost the whole package and never a leak. We usually only use Huggies because of our little ones sensitive skin, but these did not break her out. No diaper rash, no welts just smooth baby skin. Suffice it to say I will definitely buy these again. I don't shop at Walgreens except for our prescriptions, but I might just add diapers to that shopping trip.

The attachment strips always held and the leg area was stretchy enough to not cut in but tight enough to not let leaks out.

For the price and quality what more can you ask for?

Check your nearest Walgreens for these great diapers and more!

Nuby Bottle and Nipple Brush

This is the best Bottle brush I have tried. I use it on the bottles and on the sippy cups. This bottle brush even has a hidden treasure. Just open up the bottom and there is a hidden nipple brush attached.

When I received this bottle brush, I went and suctioned it to the kitchen sink. I wasn't sure it would work well since we have a stainless steel sink that has tiny ridges. But it suctioned perfectly.

The top has soft colors with gentle scrubbing bristles. Pick one of their different colors. Nuby has them for boys and for girls.

Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash Review and Giveaway



Looking for a fresh clean scent for your shower? The smell of coconut and mango together is refreshing and new. I have never found that mixture of scents before. We use a lot of the Dial products in the house since they are anti bacterial products. I am one of those people that purposely goes down the laundry detergent and soap isle at the grocery store just to smell the isle. Scent is a huge thing for me. I have to be careful of the soaps and detergents that I bring into the house. My sons skin is super picky and breaks out at new products. My husband has psoriasis so it is really hard to find things that wont dry out his skin even more. I am in love with this scent!




Product Information
Treat your skin to twice the tropical refreshment with every shower. The rich lather of this body wash is infused with coconut water, known to be rich in hydrating antioxidants and electrolytes. While the scent of juicy, ripe mango leaves skin feeling fresh, clean and delectably fragrant.

God's Love in my Heart by Nadine Wickenden



My 10 year old daughter loves this book. My favorite comment that she had to say about it was "awe look at the cute mountains, mom aren't they cute mountains"? The graphics in the book are very cute. God's Love In My Heart is a nice sturdy board book. Each page is sturdy enough to withstand little kids and the rough way that they turn pages. Follow Big and Boo, 2 very feisty bunnies. You follow them on their journey back home and how they notice how big God's love is. My favorite about most of the board books I do reviews on is that they rhyme! Kids love repetition and rhymes. I could read this over and over to the kids.


You can purchase this board book for $9.99 from Thomas Nelson.com

Dreambaby's Furniture Anchors







So many people have flat screen TV's these days. We happen to have one in our living room that is on a flat screen stand. But our oldest daughter has one in her room that is fully hooked to furniture anchors. It keeps her siblings from knocking it down. That can be an expensive accident. Furniture anchors are much cheaper than a new tv or a new dresser. Plus the hazards of it falling on your child.

Best Nut Milk Bag







I had never heard of a nut milk bag before I got to do this review. I had heard of straining milk and other items in cheese cloth. This is a really fine meshed bag. I read a couple reviews to see what it was. It is a super soft mesh bag. We get milk from the farm and it sometimes needs to be strained. This is the perfect strainer for this. I have heard of people straining almonds for almond milk. I haven't tried this before. This is also great for straining fruit that you get at the farmers market here in town.

We have a 21 month old who loves to eat fruits. She tends to eat the whole piece if we don't watch her. If you put the fruit inside the Nut Milk Bag and squeeze she only get the juice and not all the seeds and leaves on the top. We think this item is super neat! Just wash it with warm water and a little bit of soap to get it clean and ready to use again. Do not put this in the washing machine or the dryer. Great to have around for healthy eating!




You can purchase from Amazon for $9.95

Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks 2 DVD Set and BOOK with Audio CD Review






Our 7 year old absolutely loves trucks of all kinds. He loves Fire trucks, dump trucks, monster cars and more. If it looks rough and tough, he loves it! The fire trucks on this video kept him enthralled. I didn't hear a peep out of him the whole time. Although his facial expressions were great!

The audio cd was a fun, added bonus. This company doesn't just have the books and dvds on fire trucks. They even had a whole set on penguins. My 10 year old daughter keeps begging me for that specific set. She loves anything penguins. These sets are great for learning. If you home school these would be great for a science or history class.
