Indigo Ocean Dreams CD {Sponsor Spotlight & Raffle}

Indigo Ocean DreamsMama's Emporium sent us the Indigo Dreams CD.  When traveling with baby, naps often come in the car.  This CD will help any little one to invite rest and relaxation in.  Indigo Ocean Dreams is a 60 minute CD/audio book designed to entertain your child in an ocean setting while introducing them to four relaxation and stress-management techniques. Children follow their sea friends along as they learn to release and manage anger with Angry Octopus, build self-esteem with Affirmation Weaver, implement breathing with Sea Otter Cove and visualize with Bubble Riding.

The narration is accompanied by calming sounds of dolphins, sea otters and gentle waves. An additional music sound track is included to further enhance your child’s relaxation experience. These proven techniques encourage wellness and provide tools for children who suffer from anxiety, stress, trauma, hyperactivity, anger, sleep issues and lack of confidence. This kids relaxation CD is ideal for bedtime, transitions and children’s health.

Tiny Love Tiny Princess Soothe 'n Groove Mobile

Tiny Love Tiny Princess Soothe and Grove Mobile

When you are Travelin' with Baby it makes the transition to sleeping in new and strange places easier if Baby has familiar loves and surroundings along with them. If you are visiting relatives and they have a crib why not take along Baby's crib mobile? We brought along Baby Brooke's Tiny Love Soothe 'n Groove Tiny Princess Mobile this summer when we went on a 10 day, 3000 mile excursion. Brooke loves her Soothe and Grove Mobile sent to us by Tiny Love. It was super easy to set up. Brooke loves watching the cute little animals spin around. And  I love that it has music that plays and you can set the volume control.  In addition, it lights up.  I have looked at other mobiles before, but how can baby fall asleep to the animals spinning around when they can't see it in the dark of their room?  The mobile has helped our baby to learn to fall asleep on her own and she is actually excited to snuggle into her crib to watch her Tiny Love Soothe n' Grove Tiny Princess Mobile.

Travelin' With Baby - Farm Rich {Sponsor Spotlight}

This summer we traveled 10 days through 9 states and over 3000 miles. After spending over 8 hours in the car with 5 children we decided our first night of traveling that we need a quick and easy meal.  So we found a nearby grocery store and used our Farm Rich coupons to get Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites.  The mozzarella bites are made with 100% mozzarella cheese surrounded by authentic pizza crust. They are bite sized and microwaveable which was actually the kind of meal we needed.

We also chose Mini Pizza Slices The Mini Pizza slices are made with 100% real mozzarella cheese, whole pepperoni slices and classic marinara sauce enveloped in authentic pizzeria style crust.

After microwaving both items, we mixed them all together on one plate and the kids feasted! The kids approved and everyone was happy because after traveling and unloading we had a fast, easy kid friendly meal.  Farm Rich will be giving one lucky reader 2 coupons valued at $6.99 each to try Farm Rich products themselves in the Travelin' with Baby Hop October 10-24th.

Live Clean Baby Review


Live Clean Baby sent us a box full of Live Clean Baby products.  We were thrilled be able to take the Tearless Shampoo and Body Wash, Moisturizing Baby Lotion and Diaper Ointment on vacation with us.  As a parent of 5 children the two things I have learned while traveling: 1. The hotel never provides enough bath products for a family of 7.  2. The hotel does not provide products made especially for a baby's delicate skin. 

Live Clean Baby is formulated to put a Mom's worries at ease and gentle enough to be used on baby's and children's delicate skin needs.  Live Clean Baby is free of preservatives used to extend the shelf life commonly known as Parabens and other harsh preservatives, as well as chemicals commonly used to make fragrances last longer or phthalates.  Live Clean Baby  does not use animal ingredients in its formulas. The collection does not use testing on animals, either.

I love the clean fresh smell of Live Clean Baby products and the fact that they are value priced starting at $7.99.  Live Clean baby is available exclusively at Walgreens, the nation’s largest drugstore chain with more than 8,000 stores across the country as well as online at Walgreens.com.
