Get Messy With Your Baby in the #MessiestBabyContest + $50 AMEX Giveaway

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.Clay's First Birthday

Our little guy just turned one on the 20th of October! Time sure does fly, I always heard people say that, but I think until you have your own little sweetie pie, you don’t truly see how fast it really is going by! I remember bringing him home and being scared of what to do, and now he runs all over the house playing! I am very thankful I get to stay at home with him, so I get to take part in each new milestone he reaches!

We can’t always sweat the small stuff, a little mess here and there is always a little fun, right?! Rather than sweating the small stuff, parents should rejoice in the fact that a messy baby is a sign of a happy,well-adjusted one and not worry that it may reflect poorly on them as parents. Parents can brush off the spaghetti stains on the party dress and the grass stains on pants and enjoy every moment while Dreft tackles the messDreft has partnered with Dr. Hes, and she shares some great “messy baby” tips! Here are a few of her tips she shares, to make memories with your babies!

Count the fun and use your fingers: Use your little one’s food as a fantastic way to learn how to begin counting. When snacking, start counting with your little one and encourage them to use their fingers. Also, this is a great time to use food to help them learn how to properly grasp things. It will take time and practice so let them get a little dirty with their food and practice, practice, practice!

Load up on bibs: Bibs are a great way to capture those messy food moments. Once your little one is done with meal time, throw the bib in the washer with Dreft Active Baby to easily tackle the mess so you can do it all over again. The mess went way beyond the bib? No problem—throw that outfit in the washer too!

Splish, Splash in the Bath: Bring fun toys and activities into the bath and let your child splash around and have fun. Make sure to use warm water (vs. hot) and use a mild cleanser to keep skin soft and itch-free. Gently pat skin dry and end with an after-bath moisturizer to seal in moisture and protect baby’s soft skin.

Kids Projection Alarm Clock – Dinosaur, Cat, or Dog!

Big Red Rooster Has the Cutest Kid Projection Alarm Clocks! 

I received this clock as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

kids projection alarm clock

If you are in the market for a kids projection alarm clock, then check out this one from Big Red Rooster! I decided on the dinosaur clock for Clay, I thought it was really cute! We got this alarm clock to put in Clay’s room, so that he has a clock in there. But the neat thing is that this clock has a projector on it, so you can turn it on and off. It will project the time and a dinosaur on to the ceiling! You are able to select a timer if you want for how long it projects to the ceiling, 10 0r 30 minutes! It does offer 4 Dinosaur Images: Diabloceratops, Stegosaurus, Diplodocus and Pterodactyl, Ampelosaurus! I tried taking a picture of it, but I couldn’t get my camera not to use the flash.

Dinosaur Projection Alarm Clock- What Every Kid Wants!

The clock display itself is really nice, it took me just seconds to get the time set. It comes with a manual that is easy to read and the instructions are very clear! As for the alarm we won’t use it for awhile till Clay gets bigger, but I tried it out to see how it sounded. It was nice and loud and will do the job of waking up your kiddo’s!

I do highly recommend this, because it is a fun piece to have in your room that serves a purpose. Have a clock for your kid, but also looks really cute!

Handstand Kitchen Pizza Making Set gives kids the tools to bring excitement and fun into the kitchen! Some of my best memories have been spent with my daughter in the kitchen. I hope that one day she will love to spend lots of time in the kitchen with her kids. Handstand Kitchen helps provide you the tools to make memories with your kids and grandkids in the kitchen. If you have never been on the Handstand Kitchen website, you are missing out! They have the cutest products and they really encourage kids to want to learn to cook and bake in a healthy way.

When I told Kaylyn we were going to be reviewing a product from Handstand Kitchen, she was beyond excited! After looking at their website she decided that she wants one of everything! Let’s just say it will be easy for me to know what to get her for her birthday and Christmas this year.

Of course, when our package arrived with the Pizza Making Set, Kaylyn had to open it right away. She was eager to get started in the kitchen. She loves to cook and bake and knew that this would be a ton of fun. Plus, we love having girl time and knew this would be a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We had lots of laughs and enjoyed the yummy Nutella Dessert Pizza she made.

Time To Start Baking

This Handstand Kitchen Pizza Making Set comes with 5 recipe cards, Pizza Pan, Pizza Server, Pizza Cutter and Rolling Pin. The recipes encourage healthy eating and in today’s society we all need more healthy food. There are endless possibilities for different recipes. Let your child use his or her imagination to come up with amazing food.

We chose to make the Nutella Dessert Pizza. We needed to make the Whole Wheat Crust recipe first and then finish with the Nutella Dessert Recipe. I love how clear and concise the directions are. The best part about their products is not only are they super cute, but they are durable. I didn’t have to worry about her dropping an item and breaking it, which is perfect when kids (and adults) are cooking.

We thought that the Nutella Dessert Recipe was so delicious! Anything with marshmallows, Nutella and strawberries is bound to be good. We were so happy that she chose the Dessert Pizza to make first. Now she is even more eager to make the other recipes.

In the manual it comes with, they share some apps you can download that work great your the pal of your choice! You can listen to music from your music library or stream it, have fun with learning apps, and all the time you do your pal with lip synchronize which is so fun!

Big Red Rooster Baby Sound Machine – Lull Baby To Sleep In A Heartbeat

I received this sound machine as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

 Big Red Rooster Baby Sound Machine with 6 Sounds

I have 

&

I have read how sound machines help babies fall asleep faster and sleep better through the night. When I saw the Big Red Rooster Baby Sound Machine I wanted it  to try! Clay is not a very good sleeper, he is 9 months old and has never slept through the whole night. He is finally only eating one time a night, but still wants to wake up at say 4-5 in the morning. It is a work in progress, we have tried so many methods with little to no success!

big red rooster baby sound machine

As you can see in the picture, it is in the top left corner, it is very small so it doesn’t take up much room at all! It offers six different sounds, heartbeat, lullaby, ocean, rock-a-bye, twinkle, and white noise. You can adjust the volume to your liking as well. Plus their is an optional timer of 15, 30 or 60 minutes if you choose!

Clay and mommaOut of all the sounds we prefer the ocean the best, it is the most calming to me! As for seeing results I think it is helping some with Clay and his sleeping. The quality of the sounds are pretty good. It is a very affordable sound machine, which is nice. Having a kid takes a lot of the money each month so I know some families might not be able to spend a ton on a sound machine, it is very affordable! I know it just takes time, and you got to put in the work. I tried to get a picture of him sleeping in crib, but that just wasn’t successful, he would wake up from the sound of camera!
