e-cloth Review and Giveaway!

*I received a complimentary Home Cleaning Set for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

E-cloth products enable a chemical-free cleaning process that only uses water.  E-cloth was founded in 1995, and quickly became Europe's No. 1 chemical-free cleaning company; they began being sold in the United States in 2008.  In addition to exceptional cleaning, e-cloth products provide significant cost and time savings and real health and environmental benefits versus ordinary cleaning.  

If you could clean your house without using harsh chemicals would you?  I know I would, which is why I jumped at the chance to give e-cloth a try!

The Ultimate 3rd Birthday Present: Radio Flyer Build A Trike {Review}

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary Build-A-Trike for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

Well guys, it happened. My baby turned 3. Can you believe it?! Where did my BABY go? He's a big boy now, growing like a weed, speaking to me in full conversation, sharing his thoughts and opinions. I just can't even fathom the fact that just three short years ago I gave birth to an innocent life that needed me every second of every day. And now? That innocent life is a little more ornery, a little less cuddly, and a lot more independent!

I racked my brain for weeks thinking of what I could get for him this year for his birthday that would be super fun and something he wouldn't play with for five minutes and toss to the side. Mr. Hunky was less than helpful with the idea flow, so I had to think outside of the box. Then it hit me. My little guy needed a trike; and who better to turn to than the trusted brand of Radio Flyer.

Nuby Character Embossed Bowls {Review}

*Mommy's Obsessions received two complimentary bowls for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

It is my opinion that when you have a little one (or multiple!), you can never have to many plastic bowls and plates. Between meals and snacks, it seems like I go through more table wear a day than is necessary, but being that they are so easy to clean I try not to stress about it! For ease and convenience, I love the Nuby Character Embossed Bowls!

Nuby Potty Seat {Review}

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary potty seat for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

When I first started working with Little Mister on potty training, he wasn't ready so I stopped pursuing it and gave him a few more weeks before I tried again. In an effort to encourage him, I acquired several different potty seats so that he would be able to make the decision on how he wanted to learn. One of the seats we decided to try was the Nuby Potty Seat!

Nuby Foam Bath Letters and Numbers {Review}

*Mommy's Obsessions received complimentary foam letters for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

There is no better time of day than bath time! At least that's what Little Mister would tell you if you asked. My little guy absolutely loves taking baths, and has since he was an infant! It's been fun to watch him transition from an infant and loving the water gently poured over him, to a toddler who loves to splash and play with his bath toys.

When Little Mister was around 2 1/2, we started working on learning our letters and numbers. He caught on very quickly and I knew that I wanted to continue to work with him but in a fun way - and when I discovered the Nuby Bath Letters and Numbers, I knew it would be the perfect way to keep his interest while having lots of fun!

Nuby Easy Grip Flip It Cup {Review}

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary cup for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

Now that Little Mister is getting bigger, we have been transitioning from sippy cups, to big boy cups with straws! We primarily use Take and Toss cups while at home, but while out and about I need something a little more secure so that it wouldn't spill and make a huge mess in my diaper bag or purse. The Nuby Easy Grip Flip It Cup is the perfect cup for transitioning out of sippy cups but still needing something secure from leaks!

Cuski Swandoodle Blanket and Lovie {Review & Giveaway}

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary Swandoodle and Lovie for review in exchange for our honest opinions*

Cuski is a brand that many have yet to hear of, mostly because they are based over in Europe! They have been quickly gaining popularity over in the U.S., especially by moms who already have what I call a "swaddle addiction", also known as a strong love for brands such as Aden + Anais and Swaddle Designs. Word around the Facebook pages is that Cuski swaddles are to die for, so I couldn't resist trying one out for myself! 

The Cuski Swandoodle is a bamboo muslin blanket (which is a heavenly combination) that measures 55X55 and makes the perfect blanket for mom or dad to cuddle up with baby under! The Cuski Lovie is an adorable little lovie made of a terry cloth material that is not only cozy for baby to snuggle with, but will easily absorb their drool too! They're soft, cuddly, safe, and completely machine washable! Baby will have a new best friend early on thanks to the Cuski Lovie!

Nuby Booster Seat {Review}

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary Booster Seat for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

When we purchased our house last October (can you believe it's almost been a year!), Mr. Hunky and I decided to splurge on a new dining room set - not that we have a formal dining room - but we needed a new table and chairs more than any other furniture! I absolutely love our table, but it is a little high and Little Mister's high chair no longer sat at table level. Aside form that small factor, Little Mister was also getting bigger and wanted to be a big boy and sit at the table like mommy and daddy, so I knew a booster seat would be in order, and the first one that came to mind was the Nuby Booster Seat!

In Hospital Birth Plan {Free Template & Personal Example}

In the final weeks leading up to the birth of your child, I feel that it is important to sit down either on your own, or with your spouse, and think about the birth that you really want. Now, some of you may have been thinking about it since you found out that you were pregnant and that is great! But have you written down your overall goals and what you want from your birthing experience? Many not know where to start or how to get it down on paper, so I am excited to share with you today a very simple birth plan template and also share with you my own personal birth plan for Little Boy! This particular birth plan is geared toward those who will be birthing in a hospital. I personally do not have any experience in home birth's or birthing centers, so while I imagine those birth plans would look similar- I honestly do not know! Feel free to use the template below to create your own birth plan regardless of where you plan on giving birth!

Nelle & Lizzy Review and Giveaway!

 * I received a complimentary ring from Nelle & Lizzy for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

Never underestimate the determination of a mother!  Nelle & Lizzy was created when Page a mother of 3, received a simple triple band sterling silver ring as a gift, she wanted to have the names of her boys stamped on the outside.  She took the ring to numerous jewelers and called all over the US trying to get this "simple" task done, but kept getting the same answer "impossible".   She called her friend Martha who is an experienced designer and together they began the journey of creating a jewelry line that subtly expresses who is in your heart.  After years of designing, researching and fabricating they released the original Nelle & Lizzy rings!

RECARO Performance Sport Car Seat Giveaway!

One thing that I did not secure for a giveaway prize in the Mommy's Little Miracle event was a convertible car seat. I purposely did this for two reasons - 1) Convertible car seats are more for older infants and toddlers, and 2) Because I already had plans to team up with my good friend Cristen at The Naptime Reviewer to bring you this fabulous giveaway!
