Review: LeapFrog Learning Collection

My Rating: Definitely 5 stars

My daughter loved these DVDs from the get-go and my aunty went and bought it for her AGAIN not knowing she already had it. She's been watching this from age 2 or 3 and she's now at a mommy-i-know-all-the-words basis! It's a very good educational DVD. I highly recommend this to ALL parents to let their children watch this.

Review: Hyland Teething Tablets

Website: Hyland's Teething
Purpose: Relives pain because of teething

Now, I've always been one to try every remedy in the book before giving any sort of medication. EVEN if it's over the counter stuff. But, this time around teething is just phew. My sons teeth came out later in his age. He's just made 12 months on January 7, 2012 and he's got his 2 bottom grillz and his top left tooth is appearing. And, it's taking quite awhile and his gums are red so I'm assuming it's hurting him. I tried letting him chew on toys, it works. His crackers, it works - for alittle while. His sippy cup, it works as well temporarily. Errr. I've had to give him tylenol yesterday because he's just restless it was hard on all of us. So, today when I went to Walmart I purchased him a toothbrush (with the scrubber) that i'll try first before I do his tablets.

Is it working? Definitely.

Review: Lily Padz

There is a local baby store here on my island, Kauai, named Baby Blutique.   That sells everything but a baby. That's what their commercial says too. LOL. But anyways, my husband and I were shopping for our son before we had him and we had placed a stroller and bedside bed playyard type deal and I ended up NOT wanting it so all they give you, by refund, is store credit. And, well with my store credit hubbie bought my nursing pillow. And while he was there the owner suggested that he invest in Nursing Pads.

LilyPadz is nursing pads that is adhesive and reusable. I've gone green! haha. Just kidding. But, it's true. Lilypadz IS a great investment.

First use:
If you purchase the kit it's easier to clean because you have everything you need. Grab the Lily Padz wash. Pump 1-2 pumps and rub with your hands/fingers to lather and then you just gently rub the soap onto your pads and voila just wash and let air dry and you can wear them.

You take the most adhesive side of the pad and then you'll hold the middle down on the opposite side of the pad and press your pointer finger down on your nipple then place the entire pad down onto your areola it should stick. Now, if it doesn't. It may help to moist it with water. It says to keep it dry and then adhesive. I've got a good suction with just a dry pad. If not water, use your milk.

Daily use:
I use the time when I'm showering right before I get into the shower I'll wash my padz with the soap and then I'll let dry. And bam. You can also use those convenient wipes that comes with the kit (or you could purchase them separate) it's for on the go. But, I've used them on my lazy days. It doesn't clean as good as actually washing them. But the wipes have a hint of alcohol in them.

It was so funny, well not really. But, I was SUPER engorged this morning and my milk leaked. Now if you're pad isn't adhesive ALL the way around it WILL leak. Make sure it's down on your breast on the right side because you will leak. Oh and being engorged it was kind of weird because my milk filled the entire pad. It's like my areola disappeared. LOL. because it was completely WHITE :( Be careful and watch if you're engorged.

Tha Labor Pains

Hello my fellow bloggers.

I'm creating this because I've always wanted to start my own "mommy" blog. I have on my personal blog but maaaan I just can't keep up with it. So, here I am coming to you via blogspot. Oh yeahhh. You know how I roll!!

Anyways, I wanna tell you about a new show I'm really hooked onto! haha. Here it is:

It's a new TV show on Lifetime. It's called One Born Every Second. I got to watching, I don't know if it was a premiere, but last wednesday my friends (on fb) and I was watching it and commenting each other. It was hilarious. A lot of us can relate whether we have children, or is pregnant. I just had my newborn 1 month ago and boy let me tell you - I can feel these ladies pain! Ugh.

Anyways! It's a good show. So Tha Labor Pains is my new "mommy talk" blog.
