New Mommy Must Haves - Baby Magic

There is a new bundle of joy in our family for all of us to love on.  No-one can resist those chunky cheeks.  To be honest, I think we all missed having a baby around.

Thanks to Baby Magic for sending samples for review.  All opinions are my own based on my personal experience.

As a seasoned parent of two, I remember that not all moments were happy moments.  There were some baby blues and lots of tears.  Sometimes the tears may or may not have come from the parents not the baby.  I hated seeing my babies irritated or in any type of pain.  A crying baby can send any parent into panic mode.

Some products can have hidden ingredients and can cause irritation to their skin causing slight discomfort to your baby.  

Baby Magic wants to help parents and babies everywhere feel cool, calm and collected with the help of its products.

Baby Magic’s must-haves below:

• Multi-Purpose Hydrogel Patch:
o   Perfect for relieving discomfort from sunburn, rash, fever and overheating
o   Pouch contains two rectangle, customizable patches
o   Helps restore rough, extra-dry skin
o   Dye-free, paraben-free, & steroid-free
-Pro-Tip: Mom (and dad!) can use to soothe adult skin woes, as well, making these patches a dual threat!

• 3-in-1 Wipes:
o    For use on face, hands, and body
o    Suitable for sensitive skin
o    pH balanced 

I know a thing or two about having a baby with sensitive skin.  You cannot just use anything on their precious bodies much less try to use the same wipes on their face.  My daughter's face is still so sensitive to this day. 

When the babies are happy, the parents are happier!

Everyone Loves Grace

Our daughter loves to read.  But I remember that my son did not.  I had to fight with him just to get him to read the minimum required by the school for his homework.  I had to find books that he liked and even then, this was still a challenge that we continuously fought about.  

Thanks to Katy McQuaid.  My daughter received a review copy.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

Since learning to read, this girl always has a book in her reach.  As she has gotten older, she is getting picky about the books she wants to read.  She is adventurous, so she definitely loves to read stories that take care on adventures.  The adventures take her to places she has never been to or sometimes places she has been to.  

If you can find a great book series, you can make a little reader very happy.  

My daughter loved going on this adventure with Grace.  She was so happy to find out that Grace was a dog.  Because of course, she loves animals.  She was excited to find out that Grace was traveling to Texas.  And the rest, you will have to read on your own.  No spoiler alerts.  I will tell you that this was a book that she did not put down.  She literally read it from start to finish.  And when she was finished, she loved talking about it.  She told me what she learned and wanted to find out what other adventures Grace was going on.  

Katy, the author of the “Everybody Loves Grace” illustrated book series aims to give kids hope and courage as they face life’s many challenges.  The books are based on true stories told from the perspective of Katy’s beloved Finnish Lapphund, Grace The inspiring lessons are written in a fun, light, and humorous tone while addressing some of the most challenging situations people encounter in life.

“In summary,” says Katy, “this book series is an acknowledgement that we need to treat each other well, and that we have the ability to have a profound impact on others’ lives with simple acts of kindness.”
