Another blast from the past with a sharing of my family blog. Way back when… Before the Dandy blog was even thought of!  Do you like that I’m sharing these?  Should I continue?  It’s all for the love of blog!  The way things used to be.  Life before the Dandy was still dandy.

We Miss Gran & Boompa Already!
Banjo had such a fun time with his grandparents and he loves them so much! See how much?  You can also see some of our cute baby gifts in the background.  We are so loved!  My parents came into town the weekend before Banjo  was born and they were such a great help to us. They were a support to us at the hospital, got us all settled back in at home and even made our neglected backyard beautiful…just to name a few!!  My dad was able to stay for a week and my mom stayed to help for an additional week and a half. She just left yesterday and ever since Banjo has been wondering where she is! We can hardly wait until June to see them again.  Isn’t family the best?  Just spending time with family.  THE best.  Thanks again Mom and Dad! Mom and Dad, thank you for planting a garden and the yard decorations and making our home that much more dandy!  We couldn’t have done it without you!!!

So sad to leave Gran at the airport!

Poopsies {Giveaway} – Closed

Hey Dandy Fans! Today I have the cutest most genius giveaway for you today! I can’t tell you how many times my girlfriends have put their adorable kiddies in the cutest outfit and BAM! the most narliest (yes that’s a word now 😉 ) blow out just destroys that super cute outfit. There is not much you can do to prevent it and they end up in their plain white onsie.

“A poopsies® is a unique onesie for babies that contain a special lining made of waterproof, breathable material that effectively protects against diaper leaks and blowouts, saving time and money for busy parents.”

Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 9.26.41 PM

The lining inside the Poopsie Onesie holds inside the leakage/blowout. Now if you get grossed out by baby blow outs then skip the next few images, but if not check out the amazingness of this onesie!!

Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 8.46.54 PM Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 8.47.04 PM

Amazing huh?! It’s almost a mama’s dream, oddly 😉

Now their fabrics are amazingly soft! I had my Poopsie Onesie laying out on our dresser and a client had stopped by and of course it caught her eye. She couldn’t believe how soft the fabric was. And the lining of the bottom was just as soft. The lining is waterproof and very breathable. No rashes or uncomfortable rubbing on the bum.

I was able to review this darling ‘Shobi‘ onesie and have to admit that I let out a “Aahhh” when I opened the package. It is so cute for being a onesie that is specifically for blow outs/leakage. I am not a fan of just plain one onesie’s so I was excited to see all the variety that Poopsies has to offer. They have long sleeve, short sleeve, lots of colors and stripes! I highly recommend checking out their sites and at least ordering one (you will be hooked!) to try out. You won’t regret it!

Poopsies is giving away one of their Onesies!! I would definitely do all the steps to get your hands on one of these!!!

Babyganics {Review}

Summer is just around the corner. That means warmer days, pool time and lots of outdoor activities. Who doesn’t want to soak up so much Vitamin D after a long dreary winter? But with your little ones, their skin needs to be treated so much differently then yours does!

Screen Shot 2014-05-08 at 10.33.43 PM

Babyganics, the leading manufacturer of naturally safe and effective products for a “baby-safe world,” would like to introduce you to their new Mineral-Based Sunscreen lotion (50+SPF). Providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection that glides on smooth for effortless application, this new offering just in time for summer has a non-chemical, non-whitening formula that absorbs easily to skin, perfect for high exposure areas and targeted protection. Although Babyganics has no PABA, Parabens, nano-particles, Phthalates or fragrances, it is just as effective as a traditional sunscreen.

babyganics1

Pediatrician and dermatologist tested, their mineral-based formula is non-allergenic, tear free, and is the only sunscreen with Babyganics’ exclusive NeoNourish Seed Oil Blend that nurtures and supports baby’s skin. Let’s not forget that this product is also water resistant for up to 80 minutes! Babyganic’s Mineral-Based Sunscreen lotion (50+SPF) retails for $9.99 and is available for purchase at Babies ‘R’ Us, Buy Buy Baby, Target, and online at Diapers.com.

babyganics

I loved the consistency of this sunscreen. It was thick and creamy and had no smells that came when putting it on (no teary eyes, no whining because it’s to strong and smells yucky)  What I love about this product is that it was created by a group of parents. A lot of other parents including their wives were saying how they wanted to protect their child’s skin better. This is where they came up with babyganics. I really like companies who reach out to the community and find out what’s most important to them.

They also offer so many more baby-safe products. Laundry detergent, toothpaste, baby wipes, hand sanitizer. You name it!!! My husband makes fun of me because I literally wash my hands after anything I do (OCD maybe? haha) but I always have to have the best soap in our kitchen so it doesn’t dry out my hands. Babyganics hand sanitizer is amazing and the ingredients are so great for kids! Definitely check out their other baby-safe products and see what you can get your hands on!

So get your babies ready for summer the right way! A cute hat, some fun shades and some Babyganics! After all, don’t we all want “smooth as a baby’s bottom” skin 😉

Saranoni Muslin Receiving Blanket {Giveaway} -CLOSED

Untitled.png

A new baby in the house is such a blessing, but always brings some new and interesting challenges.  Adjustments abound around here!  The two olders are getting used to the newest little and so are mom and dad.  🙂  Overall I think we are all transitioning nicely.  Sometimes.  Okay I’m not going to lie to you.  Some days are better than others.  Some days are hard.  Today was especially hard.  Who knew that three children would be so challenging???  I thought we had things all figured out and then wham-o we are back to square one.  It’s one big adjustment and it’s probably going to be this way for some time.  Will it get easier?  Sure it will.  For now I just need to take it a day at a time.  In addition to the big changes in our family number came other things that I hadn’t thought about in a while.  With the new baby came the need for additional baby necessities.  The essentials.  Things that baby absolutely needs to have outside of the womb.  Things like receiving blankets.  You can never have enough of those!  Babies go through blankets on a daily basis.  Practically more often than clothing.  So having the an adequate amount of receiving blankets… Okay an abundance of receiving blankets is a definite NEED.  That’s why when Saranoni offered to send us the below set of muslin blankets I jumped for joy!

saranoni2.png

Isn’t he darling?

Saranoni selected to send the stripe and the solid blue that’s in the background.  And let me tell you… These blankets are a necessity!  Super soft.  I mean it’s muslin.  Super durable.  Double layers of muslin.  Super dandy.  Plus, the set is perfect color wise for my little guy.  Good choice, Saranoni!  🙂

In terms of muslin swaddling blankets there are actually a few options to choose from:

saranoni3.png

Saranoni also has some other gorgeous blankets that look super luxurious:

FFF! First Friend Friday!

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

fff

That’s right.  You  heard it right here.  First Friend Friday!  Now feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but I’d venture to say that this term has yet to be coined in the blogosphere.  At least not a term that coincides with those pictures people parade around on social media for things like TBT (Throw Back Thursday), WW (Wacky Wednesday), etc.  How do I know?  Well, well, well, my friends.  Google is a very magical place where you can find answers to just about everything.  (Just FYI.  Be very careful with the medical answers and advice you find on Google.  They aren’t always reliable.)  When searching “Friend Friday” I got all sorts of things:  Furry Friend Friday, Foodie Friend Friday, Feathered Friend Friday, Free Friend Friday Possibly, Facebook Friend Friday, Featured Friend Friday, Favorite Friend Friday.  The list could go on and on.  There was even New Friend Friday and Best Friend Friday.  The only thing remotely close was the term ‘My First Friend Friday’, but that was in reference to the very first posting bloggers were doing for Friend Friday.  You know that weekly blog party where bloggers answer random questions???  Yeah that one.  So I’m seriously thinking that FFF just hasn’t been coined yet.  Who knows?  Maybe it does exist out there on some very remote page that’s showing up somewhere in the more than 147,000 search results, but for now I’m just fine with saying it wasn’t coined before.  🙂   Alrighty then.  Let’s get this FFF thing started.

That very first friend ever.  We’ve all got ’em.  Who was YOUR very first friend?  Are you still friends?  For this blog posting I’m actually using a photo that I broke out yesterday for TBT.  It was broken out for personal use, so you all didn’t get to see it.  😉   It’s a throw waaayyy back and it’s a picture of me and my very first friend:

0424141947-00.png.png First Friend Friday!

Becky and I were adorbs.  Ahem.  I mean… we are still adorbs.  😉

Yes, we are still friends.

Technically this girl and I were friends before birth.  It’s true.  Our parents were good friends before us wee ones were even thought of.  🙂   They spent their weekends camping and boating.  All carefree like.  Way back in the 70’s when life was easier.  😉   Apparently our dads used to love to compare whose ski boat was better.  I’ll bet it involved their fancy sports cars, too.  Okay.  It’s very possible that to this day, whenever they are in the same room, they still do compare such things.  And neither one of them still has a ski boat or sports car!  Ahhh.  The life before kids…

So there you have it, folks.  First Friend Friday.  Stay tuned for future pictures of me and my first friend.  Next Friday.  Same place.  Same first friend.

Nohi Kids {Giveaway} – CLOSED

When it comes to my kid’s clothing I’m kind of a fabric snob.  It has to be soft.  Scratchy?  Not happening.  It has to be functional and easy to take care of in terms of laundry.  Who really wants to take the kid’s clothes to the dry cleaners?  It has to be cute.  This means cute fabric that aren’t found everywhere.  That’s why I’m soooo very glad that I found Nohi Kids.  For starters… Their clothing is organic.  Translation:  Super soft.  Next… Their clothing is machine washable.  Excellent!  Lastly… The prints on the fabric???  Absolutely.  Adorable.

nohi3.png.

 

 

See.  Told you.  Absolutely.  Adorable.

I think the above images are my favorite part about the clothing from Nohi.

1.) That fabric is too precious.

And…

2.) There are so many different styles all in that same fabric!

So you will definitely find the perfect outfit at Nohi Kids.

What did Nohi Kids send me recently???  These two outfits for my two littlest littles:

Hot Slings {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Welcome to the [2nd Annual] Showered With Love Event hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network!

Showered with LoveWe all know that April Showers bring May Flowers, but did you know that some of your favorite bloggers have come together throw a huge Shower of our own – a virtual Baby Shower! The Showered with Love Event will run from April 1-15, giving you plenty of time to enter all of the great giveaways, in the linky below, including the Grand Prize of a Combi Catalyst Travel System!

Showered with Love GP_jpg

But first, here is our Dandy prize!

I’ve been babysitting a few cuties lately during the day while their mothers (my good friends) have appointments or work shifts.  Its been so fun having little babies in the house again!  My two beefy boys are so sweet with these freshies, and its been fun pulling out all our infant toys and swings.  One thing I totally forgot about is how much of the day you can spend carrying that baby on your hip!  Especially when they’re missing their mommies, I find I spend these entire babysitting days carrying them around in my arms.  Boy oh boy, am I out of shape!  Where has all my arm strength gone?  I started digging through my baby boxes to find my wraps and realized that a sling would be a whole lot easier for these in-and-outers.  I am soooo glad one of these Hot Slings arrived at my door to review!  Great timing.

logo_tag

This is the Lemon Mist Hot Sling, sold for $64.95 at www.hotslings.com.  Over $60 might sound like a lot for what you imagine would be just a loop a fabric, but let me show and tell you about how this sling is so superior to others I’ve tried in the past.

hot1First of all, I find slings to be so much more realistic than full body wraps just because of the time it takes to put on yourself and get the baby situated inside.  I feel like with a full wrap, by the time you get yourself wrapped up folds of fabric that criss-cross every which way, the baby is inconsolable and not in the mood to be snuggled at all.  Slings are fast to put on, and easy to place around baby.  This is a wide shoulder design, so that all of the baby’s weight isn’t directed on one focal point by your neck.  You can distribute the weight all along your shoulder and upper arm, which allows you to carry that cutie for longer hours before feeling sore and tired.

hotThere are inner straps sewn into the design that allow you to really get a customized fit.  Two buckles on the outside allow you to adjust securely.  Also included in this sling packaging is a diaper/wipes sack with velcro closure to toss in the diaper bag!  Cute and functional!  Thanks, HotSlings.

hot2Another feature that I really love, and haven’t seen on other slings, is a ring of padding along the top and bottom of the sling.  It keeps the fabric from digging into your side and back, as well as baby’s back and legs.  The curve in the design is perfect for snuggling little baby shapes comfortably.

hot3I carried sweet baby C around in this for a couple hours and she was perfectly content.  Body contact is so great for babies.  I love this sling!  I’m impressed, pleased, and glad to have this around the house–for all the babies that visit and future babies of my own. HS-Styles-for-BlogThese HotSlings are available in so many fun prints!  I love how lots of them are gender neutral and geometric.

Milan Maternity {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Think about your wardrobe: do you have at least one top that is so comfortable and so flattering that you can put it on with anything–dress pants, jeans, a skirt, sweat pants–and instantly feel glamorous, even if your hair is a mess and you have no makeup on? I found one of those tops from Milan Maternity, and to feel that way while also being pregnant is no small feat!

logo

Milan Maternity is an online maternity boutique whose mission is “to provide designer style that flatters your new shape at prices you can be happy about.” And boy, have they got some cute styles! They have gorgeous tops–some that are dressy and some that are more casual–and don’t even get me started on the dresses! Super adorable. Most of their clothes can be worn before and after pregnancy, making them even more of a great deal! Here’s just a sampling of their cute collection:

collection

The shirt I chose to review was the Adriana in Bordeaux. This top is one of their “transitional” pieces that can be worn before and after pregnancy, and while nursing! There are hidden snaps and a shelf bra-type insert in the top that allow for convenient, discreet nursing while wearing the top. So much better than exposing my entire back and flabby middle while trying to feed a fussy baby! I can’t wait to wear this top with a tiny belly and try out the snazzy nursing feature.

snaps

The quality of this top is top-notch. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the ruching along the sides is long enough to to stretch over my growing belly (with plenty of room to spare!). It is well made and the style of the top is classic–I’m a total sucker for the faux-shrug style. My only complaint is that the “hidden” snaps for nursing end up showing more than I’d like them to. The fabric that is supposed to cover them gets bunched up, revealing the snaps most of the time. Surely a small snap on the outside to hold the extra fabric down over the snaps would solve this problem quickly, but it is one thing to be aware of.

collage

This beautiful top sells for $39, which is a deal when you consider that you can wear this shirt for years and years to come, not just 6 months of pregnancy.

me

I am super impressed with Milan Maternity’s selection of maternity and post-maternity clothes and would totally recommend their clothes to anyone! You can only buy their clothes online, but they have excellent shipping methods and great rates. And one lucky reader will get to choose a maternity top of your own for FREE!

Win a Top of Your Choice from Milan Maternity!

First Bites with Beech-Nut {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Feeding your baby solids for the first time has got to be one of the funnest milestones!  I love picking out just what they’ll try and documenting every bite with pictures and giggles.  I feel like the introduction to solids really makes them babies instead of infants.  We love Beech-Nut products around here, so I was tickled to get to try out a variety of their newest flavors!

IMG_0150Aren’t these jars beautiful!?  Especially when they are packaged like this, you feel like you’re feeding your baby only the best.  These colors together are so vibrant!  And so healthy!  Its great knowing that there are no artificial colors or flavors, so this coloring is for real and the taste isn’t enhanced or sweetened.  That vibrant beet red and carrot orange are nothing but the good stuff.

IMG_0154

Here is baby Grant trying out these goodies for the first time!  He’s only had one or two encounters with the new flavors and textures of solids, so it was a very new experience for him!

food

Beech-Nut actually has over 40 new flavors.  Here we have “just honeycrisp apples, “just carrots”, “beets, pear, and pomegranate” and “just spinach, zucchini, and peas”.  As you can see, they are slightly larger than the typical baby food jar size, and if you yourself have fed an infant for the first time, you know how these jars last for several feedings at first, and then suddenly, your little person is downing one or two of these in a sitting.  More food and less glass means less waste, so I’m glad to see these a little larger than normal, but not enough to go bad before your ‘freshy’ can get to it all in a few days.

 IMG_0171

One thing I really like about Beech-Nut products is how the Stage is listed on the jar so that you know if what you’re feeding your baby is appropriate for their age and abilities.  There are four stages (1, 2, 2.5, 3, and 4) which range from 4+ months to 12+ months.

feedGrant did pretty well :).  He liked some flavors more than others (the greens were a little weird), but I think it was a good experience overall.  The honeycrisp apples were a favorite.

Beech-Nut contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, which is extremely important for babies who are used to nothing but milk, as well as crucial in eliminating potential allergic reactions in these early stages.  You can find these Beech-Nut products on store shelves soon!

I’ve often come to the conclusion that SO much of what I do as a mom is categorized under odor control.  Must keep the kids bathed, the dishes out of the sink, the trash taken out, and most important of all, I must keep the diaper stench at bay.  There is nothing on this earth that is more putrid than a bag of diapers from two pooping boys that has been festering in a diaper pail for a week.
 give
Until now, we’ve been using a generic diaper pail that uses plastic shopping bags and lifts and closes with the handle bar.  Its been fine for us, but I think after three and a half years of holding in the fumes, that it just isn’t containing it as well as I’d like, even with it sitting on our back steps.
whisper-diaper-pail-logoReviewing a new kind of diaper container was definitely something I was up for.  How can a cleaner-smelling home not be on the wish list?  Moms of the world, introducing the Whisper Odor-Free Diaper Pail.  Truly.  This pail utilizes a new breakthrough odor-protection technology that I’ll tell you more about.
IMG_9693
The Whisper Odor-Free Diaper Pail comes fully assembled, but still manages to have several pages of instructions on how just to work it right.  There are several inner pieces and everything is very tight and close-fitting.  I’m sure this is crucial to creating the tightest seal possible, really making this 100% odor free.  8-gallon size bags are recommended.  Here in the picture I used a 13-gallon bag, so you can see its a little ‘baggy’ (haha), but the open grips on the bag help to gather in the extra width and hold it down out of the way.
 IMG_9698
One thing that makes this pail unique and revolutionary is the three levels of odor protection: the top lid, the inner lid, and the an effective odor eliminating spray.  I think the inner spray mist is a fantastic idea.  More odor control when you want it, plus the ability to make it kid-proof (un-pushable).  Also on my criteria is the type of bag it uses.  I’m not keen on paying for bags that are only specially designed for this canister, so the fact that it only needs 8-gallon bags is great with me.
 bag
(Notice in the picture above how the gray thumb-size tab on the side can be pushed in and out to lock the lid up or down.  You also have the option of disengaging the spray button, so that this really becomes untouchable to the babies)
Yes, everything is hands-free as it claims, until you have to get the goodies out.  In the meantime, you are only stepping on the lever, dropping the present in, and pressing a button to squirt an ODOGard spray mist into the bag.  Its true, you can stay germ-free and touchless, but at the end of the week, there is quite a bit you have to touch and smell–opening the locks, removing the trap door, lifting out the entire center pail, unhooking the trash bag excess, then loading everything back up again.  Its more work than I’m used to, but I think its worth it in the end.

pailBeing able to operate this one-handed is key when you have a squirmy baby who does not like to be naked.

The pail is taller than our last one, so I’m pleased to report that it can comfortably hold all the poopy diapers my two boys and generate in a full week.  Glad to not be emptying this more than I have to.  *Update: the oldest is officially potty-trained (who-hoo!), so the pail is only holding one-boys-worth of diapers like a champ, but know that it could hold twice as much just fine.
spray
So is it truly stench-free?  Ya!  It really is.  Not a wif of anything for the full 5-6 weeks we’ve been using it.  I’m so pleased!  Even as I’m taking the bag out and changing it for a new one, I’m not as attacked by the smell as in the past.  I think the spray has something to do with that.
You can purchase this Whisper Odor-Free Diaper Pail on Amazon HERE for $64.99.  Worth it?  Totally.
