Taking Flight with Super Wings now at Walmart! #SuperWings

My three year old Jax loves Transformers! Unfortunately they are made for older kids and he’s easily frustrated by them. He loves the Super Wings toys because he can transform them from plane to bot all by himself! There is no greater sense of an accomplishment than a three year old doing something all by himself!

Once he was introduced to the toys, I showed him the show which is available on Amazon Prime, NBC, Sprout and the Super Wings YouTube channel. Even at three Jax is all about YouTube thanks to his older brother and sister so that’s where he chooses to watch on his iPad. He loves it and so do I! Of course he also loves to star in his own videos!

I like the spirit of teamwork and friendship they have while working together to solve problems. I also appreciate the emphasis about learning about different cultures that is so important in the world he is growing up in!

While we loves all the toys, the Super Wings 5″ transforming character is definitely his favorite which works out well for playing with his best friend who prefers the little Transform-a-Bots that come in a four pack!

The Vroom n Zoom is another fun one with the capability to zoom off on its wheels powered just by your kid. You just have to love a toy with transform feature! Just fun and imagination to guide the way with Super Wings!

The CiPU Baby Diaper Bag has Everything for Baby AND Mom! #CiPU

With three kids I have gone through my fair share of diaper bags, and then some! I could just never find one with everything I needed! I felt like the Goldilocks of diaper bags! This one’s too big, this one’s too small, this one’s ugly, this one’s cheap, this one has no style and this one has nowhere for MY stuff! Well finally I found the one that’s just right!

The CiPU diaper bag has literally everything I need for baby AND me! It was like Christmas morning opening each bag and compartment to find the hidden treasures within! I don’t know about you but I don’t like to carry a separate purse when I am lugging around a diaper bag, a baby and whatever else they need! I only have two arms!

CiPU-diaper-bag

This set includes a double pouch and hand carry pouch, either one that can be used as your purse. I have used both depending where I am going and what exactly I need.

I don’t carry a lot in my purse. It’s basically my wallet, phone and keys so even though the hand carry pouch is small, it fits everything I need!

For those that like a bigger purse, the double pouch works as a purse as it has more space. I personally like this pouch for wet/dirty clothes. it’s nicely lined and can keep those items away from the clean items in the bag! We have all experienced the dreaded blow out and need a place for those nasty clothes!

The set also includes a water proof diaper pad to take care of that messy change!

When it comes to attention to detail, this one has it all. It really is the little things that makes all the difference in the world! I love the pouches on either end of the big bag for baby AND for mommy to have a drink! What I’ve found with most bags is that its a shallow pouch where things tend to fall out. This ones tall and deep enough to hold a standard water bottle or baby bottle without dumping them!

The inside also has tons of space! Usually I shove a few things in and then can’t zip the bag shut. This one has a large capacity for everything you need! My favorite part has to be the pockets. Pockets galore to keep everything organized! It even has the zipper pocket for those things that need a little privacy!

Another neat little feature is the adjustable buckle. I am constantly digging through purses and bags in search of my keys. Somehow they always seem to slip beyond my reach. With this buckle, it stretches up to 63cm so your keys are right at your fingertips! No more lost keys!

If you are out on the go and want to hang the bag from your stroller, the included aluminum hook makes this a snap!

Everything is adjustable, comfortable and set to fit all of your baby’s needs AND yours as well! The CiPU Diaper bag really has it all!

Even though he’s only two, he actually did really well playing with his sister! It wasn’t long before my oldest son who originally said he wasn’t interested had joined them!

Baby Comes Home by Dr. Paul Book

My Thoughts

Even though I have three children, I still feel like I’m learning new things about parenting every day! You would think by my third baby I would have it somewhat figured out but Jax is a totally different baby than my first two. He has his own set of issues and challenges and so while I have the experience of the first two to reference; it doesn’t mean he will do the same things.

Even in the seven years since having my first, so much has changed and new information is learned every day in the world of baby. Baby Comes Home by Dr. Paul explores the baby’s first eighteen months in a truly unique way.

I really like the way this book was written, more like a conversation than a textbook like so many baby books are. It just reads in terms that are normal and simple without overcomplicating things. I actually thought much of it was common sense but some people have limited or even no experience with babies before becoming parents themselves. This will literally tell them everything they need to know.

While a lot of it was what I already knew when it came to the basics like care and feeding of newborns, there were a few sections that were of particular interest to me as a third time parent like common illnesses and conditions. Jax has been a lot sicker than my first two ever were. This section goes through all the illnesses they are likely to get in their first year and a half with descriptions of each.

The other sections I really liked were on growth and development. I can’t remember what age my other two did certain milestones or what Jax should be doing by thirteen months. It’s nice to read and know where he’s on track and areas that I should be working with him.

I would say that Dr. Paul is a little bit old school in his approach and I like that! I think there was nothing wrong with the way things were done when I was growing up, especially concerning things like vaccinations and potty training. I think basics are good and there’s no need to complicate things the way that they seem to do now.

Baby Comes Home would be a perfect baby shower gift for the new mom in your life and a good refresher and information tool for moms who already have kids.

The Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack

The Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack

My Thoughts

In my quest to lose the last few pounds of baby weight, body fat percentage has started to become more important to me than just the number on the scale. I actually have an Ozeri scale that measures my body fat percentage as well as pounds so I was curious to see how this would measure up – literally!

When I first tried the Body Fat Test Caliper, I thought it felt a little cheap to me. I was worried it wouldn’t work well. t was also worried about it’s accuracy. Grabbing skin anywhere on my stomach doesn’t seem to be a good way to measure fat to me. After having three babies, I have extra skin on my stomach that isn’t really fat.

But my fears were calmed when I saw that you actually measure an inch above your hip bone and there is less leftover skin there so it seems to be a fairly accurate assessment. It was easy to just grab the skin and measure it as instructed. When you pinch your skin together, the inner dial automatically slides over and locks in place so you can still read it when you pull it away from your body.The Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo PackNow I don’t know about you but when it comes to fat measurement, I want it to read as little as possible! So I pinched that thing until it hurt! I was curious to see if that really made a difference. I tried several times putting different degrees of pressure on it but the most difference it ever made was a millimeter. There is a chart included where you can look up the measurement against your age to determine your body fat percentage. It wasn’t exactly the same as my scale says but it was close and I’ve heard this is the more accurate way to measure. In my case that turned out to be good news!

I didn’t have as much luck with the body tape measure. I was actually really exited about this one. I mean why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? A body tape measure that is curved to fit your body and you can lock it into place with the little barrel to read the number while it’s still on your body.The Ozeri Body Tape Measure

 

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be well made because it broke the first time I tried to use it. The little barrel on the end broke off and when I pressed the button to wind up the tape, it pulled it completely back inside rendering it useless. Luckily, Ozeri has 100% money back guarantee.

The Body Fat Test Caliper worked great and was a quick, easy way to measure body fat. I loved the idea of the Tape Measure but it didn’t survive my very first try! Sad day. At only $9.95 for both, you get what you pay for.
