Brushing Teeth Made Easy with Oral-B's Disney Time App! #ProHealthKids

This paid post is brought to you by the new free Oral-B Disney Timer App as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post.

Picture it in your mind, it's that time of day again, BEDTIME! But not for you, for your kiddos! And with bedtime comes the time for those shiny little teeth to get brushed! Maybe you have a toddler who hates brushing?  Or a preschooler who insists that 10 seconds is plenty of time?  In our house, we have both and every night is quite the challenge.

We have tried tons of tricks from toothbrushes that sing to ones that wobble and dance.  We have sung what feel like a million different tunes. We have given the kids descriptions of what happens to teeth that aren't properly brushed (they don't seem to get it.)  In the end, we just beg and pray we survive it and get off all the yucky germs!

A few weeks ago, we found something that really works! The new free Oral-B Disney Timer App! This app is amazing and really works! Each kid gets their own profile with a personalized Disney character or superhero. Then, each day/night they get a stamp on a calendar for brushing and fill up virtual sticker books.  One of my favorite parts is that you can scan any Crest/Oral-B kids product and unlock fun new stuff!

The kids absolutely love this app! They not only sit still and brush their teeth willingly but they also do it for 10 times longer than before! I honestly never thought this would happen, but it has. Bedtime is easier and everyone is happier!

The Boba 4G is a Mommy Must-Have! Adventure in Babywearing with Buddy Doo's Adventure-roos!

 This review will be an exciting two-parter with the 4G being reviewed first by Baby Savy and I, then by Brittany at Buddy Doo's Adventure-Roos! with her 38lb toddler.  Finally, Brittany will compare the 4G to the 3G she reviewed back in February of last year! Hope you enjoy :)
First off, let's explore some of the awesome features of the new Boba 4G Baby Carrier that I found with Baby Savy

Beautiful design - The Boba I received is the Tweet pattern.  This pattern is really nice! It features a pattern of beautifully colored birds and leaves against a chocolate brown background.  I have received several compliments on how beautiful it is.

Removable sleeping hood - The hood is extremely easy to use, snap on/off, and store away.  I found it useful for providing darkness while the baby sleeps, additional head support when she is awake and also discreet nursing. 

Comfortably fits heights 5'0" - 6'3" - At only 5'2", with other similar carriers I have found they are too tall for my torso.  But, this is not the case with the 4G! It fits me and Savy Daddy (5'10") really well!

Choopie Stroller Accessory #Giveaway!

Spring is on the way...even though some of us are still covered in snow. We are looking forward to warmer weather, which always equals "outdoor time". Whether we are taking walks , shopping or on vacation a stroller is a must. Even the best of strollers is a little incomplete without some great accessories. 

Choopie is a company that began when a NYC mom was disgusted by the feel of her stroller handles on a hot summer day. The company began with CityGrips and continues to expand with other innovative products for mom's.

Speak with Care: It Can Make All the Difference in Someone's Life

I was driving to work the other day and overheard someone on the radio say that so and so has an "Autistic Child." I immediately was time-warped back into a Master's class I took about children diagnosed with autism. In this class we were taught how labeling can negatively affect a child and the way they are treated or perceived by others.  Our professor was adamant in making sure we understood the correct way to describe an individual who has been diagnosed with special needs.  

Common phrase: "Billy is Autistic."

It's a very simple rule and easy to implement: A special need is diagnosed by doctors.  It's not who an Individual is. So,the individual always comes first and never IS the special need.

Doesn't this sound better?: "Billy has been diagnosed with Autism."

Why? Because then the focus is on the person and not what they have been diagnosed with.  It's giving them the chance to be who they are and allows others to focus on the person and not the diagnosis.  Think about in the long term, if little Billy grew up hearing all these people describing him as the Autistic child.  In a society that already puts tons of pressure on our kids to be "normal", he would feel even further from accepted and understood. 

If this child is yours, which way would you want someone to describe them?

I could continue to go on and on about this subject, but honestly, I think you get it.  Describing someone by their special need is insulting and demoralizing and it's time we take an extra second to think before we speak.

Just like I was unaware of this difference, I assume many others are too.  I doubt anyone who speaks this way really means to be offensive.  As my professor opened my eyes to this, I hope I have opened some of yours.

Zipadee-Zip: Sleepsack Review and #Giveaway!

*Disclosure: I was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% my own.

About Zipadee-Zip (source:

Babies love to be swaddled. But, there comes a time when baby needs to make the transition from swaddling (when baby begins to roll) and this often leads to a fussy, sleepless baby resulting in frustrated, sleepless parents. Mom and Dad dynamic duo, Brett and Stephanie Parker, founders of, created a solution to solve this issue of transitioning babies from swaddling; many are calling it magical! Their invention is called the Zipadee-Zip, a star-shaped, sleep garment that covers baby's hands, body and legs, BUT is not as restricting as the swaddle so baby can stand up, roll, crawl, and move around freely and most importantly safely.
Here are some reasons why the Zipadee-Zip has become one of the most quickly growing baby products around: 
1. Sleep - Aids swaddle transition and teaches self-soothing skills
2. Travel - Encourages sleep and settling on long car or plane rides
3. Dr. Office Visits - Eliminates tedious clothing changes
4. Grocery Visits and Plane Rides - Provides a GERM-FREE environment
5. Breastfeeding - Prevents a baby from scratching themselves and momma!
6. Stroller walks or walks/rides in a sling or baby carrier - can be worn while buckled or strapped in!
7. MORE SLEEP! Aids transition to crib off of a swing, or rock and play sleeper and helps sick little ones get rest when they wouldn't otherwise

It's that time of year again, Prom Season! What do you remember most about your Prom?  For me, it was definitely my dress! I remember going store to store to find the perfect one that fit me perfectly (5'2" and athletic isn't exactly the fit of dresses) and was something I actually wanted to wear (I have never loved wearing dresses). So, we would spend days and multiple trips to various malls to find the perfect one.  I know that I and my mom would have loved a way to shop for the dress online and have it delivered to our doorstep! 

Unfortunately, I never had that available, but the prom goers of today do! I am happy to introduce you to JenJenHouse! JenJenHouse features tons of various styles of Prom dresses!

Free Prints App: Get prints from any device! #Giveaway

So shamefully as I glance around my home I realize that there aren't many photos of our family.  It's not for lack of taking them but more for lack of time to print them. If you are the same way,  I urge you to read the below post by my friend at Open Hands and learn more about an app that can solve this dilemma!

In our busy world of popular social media outlets, I find myself having more pictures on instagram & facebook than I do on my home walls. Uploading a picture from my phone to a social media site takes seconds, but finding a site to order prints from and taking the time to do so can be consuming.

Thankfully, Free Prints App allows you to order premium quality photo prints directly from Facebook, Instagram, Picasa or Flickr.
