Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

In my house we love to spend time outside, but even more importantly. We love to spend time in the water. My girls were so excited to see all of these awesome products and have been begging me to find them an indoor pool ASAP. Check out all these great products from Swimways

Aerobie Pro Ring

The thin design of this ring allows the disc to travel longer distances and it features soft edges for comfortable catches. This amazing flying disc was used to set a Guinness World Record for the farthest throw, an amazing 1,333 feet.

The Aerobie Ring measures 13 inches in diameter.

My Thoughts: My daughters absolutely loved this toy. We recently moved to a much more open area and we have been amazed how far my girls can fly this awesome toy. I can definitely tell that we are going to need another one in our future. 

Avengers Dive Characters:

These fun dive characters are soft and flexible full-figural dive toys that look like kid’s favorite characters. Not only can your child dive for them, but they can also play with them outside of the water.

Each set includes three different characters.

My Thoughts: My nephew had a great time playing with these in the water when he was at our house over Easter. I promised him that he can play with them in our pool when he comes back this summer and he could hardly wait. 

Funny Face Swim Goggles:

Your kids will love to express their personality at the pool with these selfie-ready novelty swimming goggles, which add some fun to swim lessons and kids pool parties. The goggles feature an easy-button adjustable head strap, leak-resistant design and soft construction for a comfortable fit.

My Thoughts: My girls were so happy to have these. They have used them already at home for bath time, but they can’t wait for pool time and lake time this summer!  I think these are the cutest goggles that I have ever seen. 


These SquiDivers are soft and flexible learn to swim dive toys that wiggle and jiggle their way to the bottom of the pool, landing nose down. Their tentacles float upright making these toys easy for kids to grab. There finger holes that allow your kids to place on their finger tips for fun in or out of the pool.

My Thoughts: I can hardly wait to use these this summer. My older girls are getting pretty good at their swimming and I know they are going to love these one of a kind Squidivers.

Must Have Toddler Shoes from Max & Ola

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

Finding adorable and functional shoes for a just starting to walk toddler can be a little tricky. I must say that I absolutely love these adorable moccasins from Max & Ola.

About Max & Ola

“Just as we must protect and care for our earth, so we must protect and care for our children” 

At Max & Ola’s, they are dedicated to the safety and welfare of the planet, and the health and happiness of children.

They make baby shoes and baby apparel in the time-honored tradition; with their hands & their hearts, using only certified, non-toxic materials. We start with the finest materials they can find, and then they do their best to make sure these are processed as naturally as possible, without harsh chemicals, so they can keep our environment and our children healthy. They believe you should not put anything on your baby that the earth doesn’t know how to produce organically.

They are a business within a family, and when they say “our family” – they mean their family, your family, and the family of man, and so they honor the ideals of fair-trade and social responsibility. Fairness, honesty, and integrity are the paradigms of their company and their mission statement, and they prectice the principles they believe in.

“When we make shoes for your little ones – we make them the same way we make shoes for our little ones, for your children are our children, and our children are yours.”

About TOT Moccasins:

Sueded and ultra-soft baby moccasins! The plush “Tot Moccasins” are ultra-sturdy and ultra-easy to slip on and off chubby little feet – yet stay firmly in place when you want them to! An ideal lighter shoe for Pre-Walkers and First Walkers, thanks to the special rubberized “pebbles” inset in the soles. Max & Ola’s “Tot Moccasins” actually facilitate the “learning to walk” stage, giving your baby the traction they need to stand and toddle forward without slipping.

The inner and outer linings of the hand-stitched baby moccasins are made of fine Italian goat leather that’s been vegetable tanned (no chromium) – so that they’re hypo-allergenic and healthy for sensitive little feet, with or without socks. Rubberized pebbles also protect the bottom of the shoes from dirt and soil at the same time.


  • Suede leather & sole
  • Soft leather lining
  • Chromium free leather
  • Rubber grips
  • Slips on

My Thoughts:

I absolutely love these Moccasins. They are adorable and completely functional. My little girl actually has incredibly small feet so she’s just getting close to wearing them, but I do have a friend with a daughter that has a little bit bigger feet and she loved trying on the shoes and wearing them all around the house. Both of the girls loved the color of them and were constantly trying to put them on their own feet. I know these are just my first pair, but I definitely am wanting to get some of the boots of the other new adorable styles that they have to offer.


If you are interested in purchasing these adorable Tot Moccasins or any other great shoes that Max & Ola has to offer, head on over to their website and find some that are perfect for the Tot in your life :).

Must have Breastfeeding Products from Fair Haven Health

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

Breastfeeding can be tough at times, but very rewarding. With these great products from from the Milkies line from Fair Haven Health, providing Breastmilk should be no problem what so ever.

About Milkies (Fairhaven Health):

The mission at Fairhaven Health is to develop products designed to safely and naturally promote fertility, pregnancy wellness, and breastfeeding success.

Noted fertility expert Amos Grunebaum, MD, plays a pivotal role in formulating their FertilAid, FertileCM, FertiliTea, and Pregnancy  Plus product lines.

About Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement:

Nursing Blend is an all-natural dietary supplement that contains a blend of herbs that have been used for centuries by nursing mothers when a boost in breast milk supply is needed, including fenugreek and fennel seed. And, by providing a unique combination of whole fenugreek seed powder along with a concentrated fenugreek seed extract, Nursing Blend offers an equivalent dose of 2 grams of fenugreek in each daily dose. Nursing Blend also includes herbs that provide calming effects for mom and baby, including chamomile and anise.

The Nursing Blend is the only dietary supplement that combines herbal support for breast milk production with the vitamin and mineral support that nursing moms need to produce quality breast milk. Nursing Blend was scientifically-designed by doctors and nutritionists to specifically meet the nutritional needs of nursing mothers and their babies and to aid in milk production. In addition, Nursing Blend is endorsed by leading lactation specialist and MD, Dr. Kathleen Marinelli.

My Thoughts:

WOW, I absolutely love this amazing vitamin. I made it to the 7 month mark before I started noticing I wasn’t pumping near as much as I was pumping originally. I only had about 3 more months to go with pumping before I was off for the summer and wouldn’t need to pump anymore. I was very impressed with how it helped me maintain my supply as well as gave me the subtle boost that I was needing. I also liked that the vitamins truly made me feel better than the vitamins that I was taking before. I would highly recommend these amazing vitamins to anyone that is looking for a good boost and to maintain the supply that they already have.

About Fenugreek Dietary Supplement:

Fenugreek is an annual herb native to the Mediterranean region of the world. Fenugreek is used throughout the world as a culinary spice and has been used by women for centuries as a “galactagogue” – a natural product to increase production of breast milk. Fenugreek contains diosgenin, a plant-based estrogen, which has been shown to increase milk flow in lactating women to help support breast milk production.

Unlike other available Fenugreek supplements which can require taking up to 8 capsules per day, Fairhaven Health’s Fenugreek contains a unique blend of organic Fenugreek Seed Poweder, along with a concentrated Fenugreek Seed Powder, delivering a dose equivalent to 2000mg of standard fenugreek seed powder in just 2 vegetarian capsules each day.

My Thoughts: 

Since I have been taking the vitamin that already has the Fenugreek in it, I don’t take these on a daily basis, just on days that I notice that I have dipped a bit for various reasons. I am really impressed with this vitamin compared to other Fenugreek that I have taken in the past. This is a great vitamin to use and I know that it will benefit others just as it has benefited myself.

About Nursing Time Tea:

Nursing Time Tea is the all-natural herbal tonic designed to help nursing mothers increase their milk flow and soothe digestive unease of both mother and baby. Nursing can be problemeatic for many women, particularly in the beginning, and the herbal ingredients in Nursing Time Tea have been used for centuries to promote healthy lactation and bring quick relief to both mothers and colicky or “gassy” newborns.

Nursing Time Tea brings together a select array of safe and proven ingredients to aid nursing in three key ways: enhancing the quantity and quality of available milk; alleviating digestive complaints, including gas, indigestion and colic; and providing a rich spectrum of nutritive vitamins and minerals central to robust and healthy nursing.

My Thoughts:

I have really enjoyed this Tea a great deal. Through the cold months and when I was trying to get back to what I was producing I found it incredibly effective at it’s job. It tastes great, and I get to use my favorite tea mug since it is a loose tea.

Superfoods Snack Time with The First Years

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

Dinner Time and Snack Time can be quite the feat with young children, as anyone that has eaten with a child may well know. The First Years is going above and beyond to make sure that it is a much more enjoyable experience for everyone.

About The First Years:

3 Things The First Years believes above all else:

  1. Your journey as a parent is uniquely your own.
  2. The not-so-smooth moments are more memorable than when the stars align.
  3. Think out of the box and trust yourself; you’ve got this

The First Years was founded by parents more than 65 years ago. Mr. & Mrs. Sidman from Roxbury, Massachusetts were looking for the next big thing to grow a business. Marshall Sidman found it in an innovative diaper pin developed by a friend – one that wouldn’t prick parent’s fingers or baby’s skin. He approached local stores and The First Years journey began. Today, The First Years is a leading global juvenile products brand, recognized for it’s breadth of thoughtfully designed products that help parents through the many unexpected twists and turns on their own parenting journeys.

About Double Duty Plates:

It’s easy to “Put a lid on it” with The First Years Take & Toss Double Duty Plates! The plates double as lids for on-the-go meals, with a built-in utensil compartment for added convenience. Each leak-proof compartment seals independently so food stays separated and fresh.

My Thoughts: I absolutely love this product. I know that once my youngest gets a little older this product is going to be a very important tool for me. I love that the compartments stay separate even as you put it together on the go. 

About Stackable Soft Spout Trainer Cup- Pink:

This is the perfect cup for Baby’s First sippy cup. The First Years Stackable Trainer has easy-grasp handles and a soft spout that’s gentle on gums. Spill-proof and easy to clean, the one-piece lid is interchangeable with The First Years reusable cups, with no small parts to lose.

My Thoughts: I absolutely love these cups. My youngest is still at the stage that the soft spout are the cups that she prefers. I love that there are not multiple pieces to these cups. I hate when moisture gets in between all of the layers in the cup and then you have to work about mold and such. The design was adorable and my daughter was in love!

About The First Years Simply Spoutless Cup – 2 Pink:

The First Years Spoutless Cup lets your little one drink naturally from anywhere around the rim (just like an open cup), and it automatically closes tight when they stop sipping.

My Thoughts: Yay, I love these cups and I want to know why they didn’t exist when my other girls were younger. I can’t wait for my youngest to grow into these cups. I love the look and style of them, as well as the No spilling. 

About The First Years Inside Scoop Suction Sectioned Plate Pink:

We know that feeding time can be messy time. The Inside Scoop Section Plate is designed for easier self-feeding, with a unique curved rim to help guide more food onto forks and spoons. With a suction base to avoid slips and slides, plus three sections to keep food separate, it’s the plate you’ll reach for again and again.

My Thoughts: I absolutely love this awesome plate. My daughter is not quite to the age where she uses utensils, but she has gotten very excited about having her own plate and different foods in each section of the plate.
