The Not-So-Secret Confessions

It’s a Preemie Thing – Giveaway for Prematurity Awareness **CLOSED**

Today is Prematurity Awareness Day. We’ve all been in a store and had that stranger come up to us with our baby to “ooh” and “aww” and then the awkwardness starts. “he sure is skinny” or “what’s up with all the wires?” I remember saying not long ago how I wish I could make a shirt that said, “Don’t judge me, I’m a preemie”. Well I found someone who specializes in clothing for preemies!!

It’s A Preemie Thing was created by fellow preemie mama, Julie Howard, to be a one stop shopping site for your preemie while you’re in the NICU, or after you’ve started enjoying your bundle(s) of joy back at home.

Tired of pumping day and night? It’s a Preemie Thing carries hand free pumping bras!!!

Ever wish you didn’t have to keep telling people not to touch your little one? They have something for that too! You have to be agressive when it comes to germs. Here you can find a sign that can be put on your stroller, carrier, or anywhere for that matter!

They also have cute easy on/off clothing for the babies who are still in the NICU or came home with monitors that fit sizes 0-3lbs and 3-6lbs. They have blankets and BEAUTIFUL teething necklaces too! There are so many cute things to choose from!

Here is Julie’s story…

“He arrived the day I turned 29 weeks, the day after Thanksgiving, so we call him our Black Friday deal of the century! The morning after his birth, he weighed in at a whopping 2lbs 5oz and was just over 14” long. By far the smallest baby I had ever seen. We spent the next 64 days in the NICU experiencing things we never thought we would deal with.

During this time, we could not find clothing small enough to fit Spencer, we thought that we couldn’t be alone in this quest. I kept catching myself and others answering questions about our babies with “It’s a preemie thing” since most parents of full term babies had different experiences. So the seed was planted and grew into our site – It’s a Preemie Thing.”

My favorite items from It’s a Preemie Thing are the witty t-shirts and onesies. With sayings like “Got Sanitizer” and “I’m Older Than I Look”, you’re sure to find the perfect shirt for your baby.

Quantum Health Oral Care *Review & Giveaway*

I am a band geek. Go ahead and laugh. So in school, I used to get mouth sores pretty often. I would buy the liquid stuff in the drugstore and keep it in my clarinet case because it was hard to play when your mouth was hurting so bad, but also because it was funny to goof off and try and play with your mouth numb sometimes. I never said I was the smartest kid.

But that was the thing with the other brands. No matter what I tried (whether intentionally or not), I was left with a completely numb mouth and tongue. And of course I ended up swallowing a good bit. Which got me thinking…What’s in this stuff?

That’s why I got so excited when I was asked to review Quantum Health’s Natural Oral Care line. I was sent a package with

• Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment, a clinically proven natural ointment shown to cut healing time in half. It’s made with Tea Tree Oil and Lysine and it goes on very smoothly. Even better is that it’s clear and can worn under chapstick or lip gloss. Not to mention it smells good!

• Oramoist Dry Mouth Patch which is made to stick to the roof of your mouth and moisturize your mouth for up to four hours. It’s time-released, sugar-free and freshens your breath with a natural fruity flavor.

• Canker Cover Canker Sore Patch Which lasts 8-12 hours and is made with edidible ingredients. This gel patch sticks to the sore and covers it from food and drink and has a mint taste that freshens your breath without overpowering your mouth.
http://www.cankercover.com

I tried all three, but I’ve never had cold sores so I can’t vouch for the Lip Clear except that it feels nice and I HAVE seen the effects of Lysine on cold sores and it is awesome!!

The dry mouth patch, I let Kyle try because he is a mouth-breather. (hehe) Especially at night, he has trouble with dry mouth and I hate to say it causes quite a funk on his breath. We were really impressed with these and he said he would be buying more. And coming from him, that means a lot!

Lastly, I wanted to make sure I was able to really do this product justice. The Canker Cover is awesome. I honestly sat back and prayed for a sore this week! Fortunately, I bit the inside of my lip and Kyson stuck his sharp fingernail in it this morning This stuff is awesome. It looks like a thin pill or one of those Smarties candies. You stick it to the sore and it turns into a gel. It doesn’t taste bad or turn your whole mouth numb and there is no swallowing any chemicals. (YUCK!) I tested it good. It felt a little strange, but I just ate a happy meal with a coke and it’s still hanging in there. It’s stuck for good. I tried to pull at it and it didnt come off. And when I run my tongue over it, it doesn’t move but it tastes minty. Even after the patch is gone, it feels wonderful and has healed almost completely after just one patch I have a feeling I will be using these for a long time.

Doopsy Giveaway

HUGE GIVEAWAY – 30 Prizes Doopsy Celebration Event on http://www.Doopsy.com/blog -20 Doopsy OS Pocket diapers and 10 Doopsy Inserts

Two Bums Up

I want to take today to write about something I’ve grown to love. Hear me out mamas!! I love cloth diapers. I am unconditionally and irrevocably in love with them. (twilight lol) But really. That’s how much I love them. It’s why I flipped out about my water being muddy. And why I spend every last dime I can pull out of the couch cushions on them. And I want to spread the love.

I’ve had a few people ask me about switching and will pass it along like Michelle passed it to me. It’s so much easier than you could possibly ever imagine. You just flush it down the toilet. It’s like potty-training training!!! And I guarantee if you ever try them, you will fall in love too!

Don’t get me wrong, I still use disposables too. He’s wearing Huggies right now! (Laundry day. : / Woot.) But Imagine wearing a pad every minute of everyday for two years. That would suck. I don’t even wear them EVER because I hate them. So I won’t make him do it either. Besides, they’re so stinking cute! It’s exciting to collect them. I read one article that said they were the new beanie babies! (man… if I had all THAT money back!)

So… to new moms or moms to be that are reading this, I extend an invitation to you to come to my house and see my stash. I’ll come to you if you want. (friends only lol I’m not driving outside of Georgia) I’ll even drive with you to the store to show you some different kinds so you can actually see them and touch them. They are the softest soft you can imagine!

Look at my new UGA diaper!!!
I got it from Squeezie Cheeks
GO DAWGS!!!!!!
(yeah, she makes all those other lame teams’ diapers too. Jk!)
