Lil’ Prayer Buddy by Wee Believers Review

Wee Believers is a company with the mission to inspire children in their faith and is committed to giving children opportunities to build character and virtue! The company is founded and operated by a dynamic Dad and Mom team, their toys redefine the interactoin between children and their toys–bringing purpose to play and making faith fun!

I was lucky enough to be able to review their Lil’ Prayer Buddy. This toy received the 2012 Mom’s Choice Awards-Gold.

This toy is soft and cuddly! When your child pushes the ear, a child’s voice recites the Our Father, then the Hail Mary, followed by the Glory Be prayers. (A fourth push turns it off for quiet cuddle time. It measures 10″, batteries are included!

My Thoughts:

Well, as you can see in my picture, my daughter is definitely in love. She couldn’t be any happier with her new toy. She loves to push the buttons before we say our nightly prayers. I am also pleased to say that she has memorized the prayers from hearing them herself so much!! This toy is extremely soft and cuddly, and my daughter always wants to cuddle it when she goes to bed, or takes naps!!

Amamante Night and Day Nursing Bra Review and Giveaway

I was fortunate enough to be able to do a review on the Style 2012 Night & Day nursing Bra from Amamante Nursingwear. As any nursing mother knows, a good bra is truly your “best friend.”

The soft, comfortable material is thin and very breathable. It does have a wide elastic band for support. It is designed in such a way, that it is very easy to push out of the way, and you don’t have to worry about messing with the clasps. I have found that it is extremely comfortable! I enjoy wearing it most times. It also is comfortable enough, that I really don’t mind wearing it at night either!

This bra fits from B to D cup sizes, you just have to get your band size, and it fits!! It is a great bra for when you are pregnant, or when you are nursing and your size is constantly fluctuating.

Honeywell EnergySmart® Surround Select Ceramic Heater Review

With winter just around the corner, who doesn’t have the need for a Space Heater? I live in the middle of Kansas, where we have extremely cold winters!! My husband is definitely pretty frugal (I think that’s the best way to put it 🙂 ). He always likes to wait and see how long he can wait to turn on the heat. It was definitely no big deal when it was just the two of us, because I LOVE to snuggle up with blankets, but now that we have 2 younger children, it really isn’t an option for us to do!!

This past weekend it was already in the high 20s/low 30s! I was all for turning on the heater, but my husband of course was reluctant! SO, I recently received the Honeywell EnergySmart Surround Select Ceramic Heater to review! I couldn’t have been any happier. I KNEW this is one product that I most definitely could thoroughly test, as well as get some great use out of!

I decided it was definitely time to break it out of the box!! I got it out and read some of the instructions, to make sure that I didn’t mess anything up 🙂

Here are some of the features of the Heater:

  • Ceramic Technology for quiet, even heating
  • EnergySmart Digital Controls
  • 180 degree feature for directional heating
  • 360 degree tip over protection
  • Cool TouchCarrying Handle

I’m sure that you’ve at least heard of Milk Makers. They are an absolutely amazing company. Which is why I’m thrilled to do a review for you as well as to offer you a giveaway of their great product.

About Milk Makers

Milk Makers is a company that makes wonderful nutrient filled cookies for breastfeeding mothers. The founder of the company, Emily Kane started it as a means to find a solution to her new issues when trying to balance going back to work and nursing her daughter.

Some of the supplements that are added are brewer’s yeast, oats, and flax seeds. For about $1.50 a day, a mother can boost her milk supply by eating a great cookie!

My Thoughts

I was very excited to give Milk Makers a try. I was able to successfully breastfeed my other daughter up to a year. I am not going to say that it was easy, as I am also a working mother! I It did get very tricky to be able to pump enough at work to compensate what she was eating. I survived, but it was very stressful. I received a 10-pack of these cookies and was pleasantly surprised at how easily and how much it upped my supply.
