My family has taken a lot of vacations over the years, and discovered a lot of places to love. And one of the most fun-filled trips we ever took was to beautiful California. When people think of California, places like Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the Napa Valley wine region tend to spring to mind. But […]

If there’s one essential parental must-have for children transitioning from a bottle to a cup, it has to be the sippy cup. A good sippy cup just makes life so much easier…children can’t spill the beverage, the cups are designed to be easy for little hands to hold and the portion size is just right. My boys used a lot of different sippy cups when they were toddlers, but all the cups they used were from Playtex, because the company does such a great job of making sippy cups that work for a variety of needs.
Now, Playtex has debuted a new and improved line of sippy cups with different key purposes so that parents and their little ones can find the perfect cup for them. The TrainingTime cup is designed for babies that are four months or older. It features removable handles for easy gripping so that parents can transition their little ones to the feel of a real cup. The AnyTime cup is designed for babies nine months and older and features a contoured design that’s easy for little hand to hold and a special spout that makes controlling the flow of liquid easier. The PlayTime cup is larger for children 12 months and older and insulated so that children’s drinks stay cold. And the TravelTime cup is perfect for children 24 months and older and features a straw lid with a sliding top to keep the straw clean. [Read more…]
It’s funny how quickly a mother forgets the smell of dirty diapers once her kids are potty trained, yet how quick the memory returns when there is a baby in the house once more. When my boys were younger, a Diaper Genie was a product that I’d often thought about buying, but I never actually followed through. The smell of dirty diapers was something that I just got used to after a while, but I was sure happy when those diaper days were over!
Then my sister came to visit for a week and with not one, but two little ones in diapers, that distinctive scent was once again filling my house. And I was shocked at just how strong it was! My sister actually has a Diaper Genie in her own house, but since Playtex had just released a brand new Diaper Genie Carbon Filter to help eliminate smells even better, I decided the timing was perfect to set up my own Diaper Genie and see how the filters worked in it.

It’s amazing to me how even very small babies can be so unique and how quickly they make their individual personalities known. My oldest son was a cheery baby that loved being out and about with me seeing the world, while my youngest was fussier, clingier and happiest when he was in my arms and I was holding him close. Even the way they ate was different; Zackary was waking up once a night to eat by the time he was a year old, while Benjamin at the same age was waking up five times a night!
Playtex Infant understands how different babies can be and that’s why the company puts so much effort into designing products that will work for your unique baby. The company’s latest innovation, the Playtex Nipple Variety Pack, is one of the most ingenious concepts I’ve ever seen and I so very much wish it had been around when my boys were younger. Containing four distinctly different nipples, it lets parents skip the trial-and-error process and find the right nipple for your individual baby. I have a feeling that my almost exclusively breastfed boys would have loved the NaturaLatch nipple! [Read more…]
I love being a mother and it’s something I’ve embraced since I learned I was pregnant eight years ago. My emotions after having my first son were mostly of wonder, happiness and love, but in the coming weeks another emotion started to creep into my days…confusion. When it comes to taking care of a baby, parents have a plethora of choices. That’s a good thing, but it can also make life more confusing for a new mother! Bottles are the perfect example. From different bottle designs to different nipples that provide certain benefits and flow rates, how is a mother to know which bottle is best for her little one? Babies can be picky and so even after making a choice, many parents find that their little ones reject the bottle or nipple that’s been purchased and favour a different one.
