Little Pim Language Materials Review

by Jaime Weis November 17, 2013

When I was in college, an Italian friend shared a joke with me. It goes like this: “What do you call someone who speaks three languages?” “Trilingual,” I answered. “And what do you call someone who speaks two languages?” he asked. “Bilingual,” I replied. “And what do you call someone who only speaks one language?” […]

Merino Kids Go Go Bag Sleep Sack

by Jaime Weis November 10, 2013

Winters in Ohio can be pretty brutal. We’ve had ice storms, six-foot snow drifts and days on end of below-freezing weather. Last year, because of an ongoing problem with our gas line, my hubby and I not only had to worry about keeping the kids warm when we took them outside of the house – […]

Nine Nutrition Prenatal Vitamin Drink Mix {Giveaway}

by Jaime Weis November 3, 2013

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was so completely sick that it was a real effort to keep anything of nutritional value down. For some reason, the only foods that *didn’t* make me physically ill were sugary starches (like french fries. I admit it to my shame, I basically lived on them for […]

Bummis Best-Ever Bib Review + Giveaway

by Jaime Weis September 3, 2013

Kids need clothes. Kids need food. Kids tend to ruin their clothes when they eat food. I confess to making my toddler eat spaghetti in the nude on more than one occasion because I didn’t want her outfit trashed. Naked spaghetti night wouldn’t be such a big deal if it only happened at home – […]

Philips AVENT Manual Comfort Breast Pump Review

by Jaime Weis August 11, 2013

I spent a lot of time pumping when I nursed my DD. I had a part time out-of-the-house job, and needed the milk for babysitters. I had a small electric pump that I bought used on ebay (plus some replacement parts for hygiene), and it cost me about $40. I could have bought a manual […]

Nursing Mama Tea by Mamatea

by Jaime Weis July 8, 2013

When my DD was an infant, I exclusively breastfed. It sounds so simple to say it now, but whenever someone asked me during her newborn stage how nursing was going, it was all I could do to keep from bursting into tears. Nursing was terrible. Horrible. A total nightmare. I wanted to quit soooo badly!!! […]

Baby Sign Language Kit from Babysignlanguage.com

by Jaime Weis July 2, 2013

One of the hardest parts of mothering a very small child is the frustration of seeing your child in distress, and not knowing why. I remember when daughter was only a few months old and she’d start crying incessantly. I couldn’t simply ask her what she needed – so most often I found myself going […]

Brica Magical Firefly Auto Mirror Review

by Jaime Weis June 8, 2013

Babies need their car seats to be safe – but few of them like their car seats. My little girl used to hate it so much that she’d cry herself to sleep, while I tried to focus on the road, feeling helpless and frustrated and fighting back tears of my own. It got better when […]

Earth’s Best for Babies & Toddlers

by Jaime Weis June 7, 2013

Like most naturally-minded mamas, I try my best to give my kiddos homemade baby foods and purees, made from organic ingredients. But, obviously, life happens. It’s not always possible to keep tons of homemade stuff on hand for car rides and grandma’s house – and sometimes, even if you technically have time to make things […]

These Yummi Pouch refillable and reusable food pouches are a great way of accomplishing all of the above. These pouches were so desirable […]
