I am posting this giveaway because I think these machines are so cool.  In my opinion, we are never going to get people to stop drinking sugar filled drinks, but we can help cut down on the waste that they create.  If used properly, this could cut down on that sort of waste.

Juppy Baby Walker Review and #Giveaway




Back when Goose was learning to walk, I would walk her around with her holding onto my hands.  She was up moving, but I also walked around with constant back pain for doing that. Until I came upon the Juppy Baby Walker.

Never heard of it?  That's ok, I hadn't either until Goose started started trying to walk. However, if you have a kid who is not walking yet or just started walking holding onto stuff, then you need to listen up. 

The Juppy Baby Walker is made almost like a traditional baby walker, but better.  A traditional baby walker lets the baby walk/roll around the floor with our without a parent/caregiver present.  What I like about the Juppy is it allow children to experience the independence of walking alone, but still puts the parent there at arms reach.  

Now, you may say to yourself "OMG it's a crotch dangler", well, it's not, and here's why:  A crotch dangler would mean that the baby would be dangling by his/her "bits", letting the legs hang straight down like with the poorly designed baby carriers and the dreadful "Johnny Jump Ups".  This is not the case with the Juppy.  The Juppy is not made to carry your baby; it is made to help support some of the baby's weight making it a little easier to balance and walk.  

The Juppy Baby Walker company actually sent me a Juppy Momentum to try out last week.  This baby walker is like the Cadillac of baby walkers, and is a little different than the original one that I had.    Below are some photos I took comparing the two side by side. 





As you can see, the basic design is the same, just a few thing have changed making it better.  There are a few more safety features added like the velcro straps on the back, and a couple of comfort features like the covers for the straps.

So, what do I think?  I love the Juppy.  It really helped Goose walk on her own.  Would I recommend the Juppy to other parents?  Yes, in fact, I have.  

BUY IT: You can buy the Juppy Baby Walker directly from the company's website at https://thejuppy.com/shopnow.php .  It comes in three colors. Black/Pink, Black/Blue, and Black/Yellow (shown above). 

WIN IT: The Juppy Baby Walker company is allowing me to giveaway one Juppy Baby Walker to one of my lucky readers.  Just fill out the form below to enter.  A winner will be chosen at random and emailed within 24 hours of the contest ending.  The winner will have 48 hours to email me back or another winner will be chosen.  Winner gets to choose from one of the color's listed under the "buy it" part. 
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.  This post originally appeared on http://babymarohn.blogspot.com.

Professional Pet Nail Clippers By Epica Review

There are two things that I am really really passionate about in life; children and animals.  I know this blog is geared toward products and information regarding children normally, but I thought it was time to branch out once and do a review for a pet product.



I worked as a veterinary assistant for several years, and in that time I used my fair share of nail trimmers on dogs.  You know, when you when you do a job over and over, you find a favorite tool that you grab every time you need to do that job.  For me, I had a favorite pair of orange handled nail trimmers that I loved.  When I left the veterinary world, I wished I could take that one pair of nail trimmers with me.

Since then, I have been looking for a pair of nail clippers that were similar, but I did not want to pay more than $10.  Well, I have found them a pair of pet nail clippers that rival the orange handled ones.  I was recently allowed to review Professional Pet Nail Clippers By Epica, and I love them.  The pet nail clippers are precise and SHARP.  Making great cuts every time.  The nail clippers have a guard on them, so that you do not trim too much of the dog's nail (I have removed that feature on other trimmers, but Epica really got it right).  I found that the handle was very comfortable, and did not hurt my hand while I trimmed my dog's nails.  Another feature that I loved, was that the pet nail trimmers have a metal piece that locks them for safety when not in use.  Other nail clippers I have used in the past, this part has been plastic.

The dog nail trimmers are great, but I did have one tiny issue with them.   When you squeeze the clippers to cut the nail, there is a pop sound, and the blades kind of catch on each other at the top.   You can squeeze through it, and the clippers function wonderfully, but I would be a little concerned that it might wear the blades down quicker.  I don't know if it was just the pair I received or if this happens with every pair.

All in all, this is a wonderful pair of nail trimmers for dogs.  At $7.95 on Amazon, you can't go wrong with these professional pet nail clippers.

DISCLAIMER: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.  These words are that of my own opinion.  This post originally appeared on http://babymarohn.blogspot.com

Tiny Roos Ring Slings Review and #Giveaway

I started babywearing Goose a few months after she was born.  I had no clue what I was doing, and ended up turning my cotton wrap into a cheap looking crotch dangler.  I had no clue why it killed my back to wear her, since she was so small and I carried her all the time anyway.  Turns out it was my poor wrapping skills at the time that was causing us both pain.

Then one day, I was talking to another mom about wanting some more cloth diaper and other natural parenting stuff, and she told me about a local store that sells everything  that was interested in, including babywearing products.  On my first trip there, I left with a cloth diaper, an amber necklace, and a Boba baby carrier. Thus beginning my obsession with babywearing.



When Tiny Roos agreed to let me do a review, I was ecstatic!  Of course I always get a little giddy when I get to do a review of a product, but this one has truly stood out, as far as ring slings (RS) go.  In fact I love it more than I do my first RS.


Tiny Roos sent me a beautiful linen RS in lime.  Now, if you don't know me personally, then you probably don't know that I am a plus size woman.  The RS that they sent me is a medium which measures 78", and it fits me just fine.  I was just not able to do a RUB carry, which is fine since I am not very good at it anyway.



I love that the sling is linen.  Why?  Well, linen is super strong, breathable, and lightweight.  Making it a wonderful product that is safe and enjoyable by both child and adult.

(someone was a little sleepy)

It is also very simple to care for.  They can be hand washed or machine washed on cold and gentle, and hung to dry.

As far as I am concerned, Jessie, the owner, really did do a beautiful job on this sling.  She makes sure they are super safe by using the best products out there.  She was also able to add a little custom stitching for me near the rings, making this RS my own.

So, are you wondering how you can get your Tiny Roos Ring Sling? Well, here are your options.

BUY IT: Tiny Roos has an Etsy store that you can check out at http://www.etsy.com/shop/tinyroos, or you can check out their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TinyRoosRingSlings.

WIN IT: Tiny Roos has offered to giveaway one of their ring slings to one of my wonderfully awesome readers.  Please enter on the form below for your chance to win.  Please only one person per US household may enter who is at least 18 years old (or older).


Disclaimer:
 I was provided a ring sling free of charge by Tiny Roos for this review.  However, this review is based on that of my own opinion, and I received no monetary compensation for the review.
