The Perfect Baby and Toddler Carrier from LÍLLÉbaby

LÍLLÉbaby 6-in-1 carrier

Baby carriers have come in handy for me, as a new mom, more times than I can even count. I love them! I had to tell you about this awesome 6-in-1 carrier I was given to review from LÍLLÉbaby. It’s called the Complete All Seasons 6-in-1 Carrier. It’s honestly one of the coolest carriers on the market.

LÍLLÉbaby All Seasons Carrier

Let me first tell you about all of the many different positions you can use to hold your child in this LÍLLÉbaby carrier! There are 6 positions you can use.

LÍLLÉbaby Complete All Seasons Breathable 3D Mesh 6-in-1 Carrier

  1. Fetal – Great for very little babies (newborn-3 months old). Your baby’s neck is supported and they’re face-to-face with you so they’re protected from their surroundings.
  2. Infant – This position is perfect for when your baby has outgrown the fetal hold, but they’re not quite ready for a wide-seated position. The narrow seat is a great for your little one’s back, thighs and behind. There is also a cover for if you want to nurse on the go or if you want to cover your baby from the elements (rain, snow, etc.).
  3. Face Out – Perfect for babies 6 months and up who have strong neck support and can hold up their head on their own. I personally love this hold because my daughter can look around at her surroundings and take everything in.
  4. Toddler – This hold is great for a sleepy babe. They can lay their head on your chest and listen to your heartbeat. My daughter has passed out many times in this position. Ages 6m+
  5. Hip – The hip position is a hold that a lot of parents are used to. Without a carrier, most parents hold their babies on their hips. It helps to take the pressure off of your lower back. This position is perfect for getting certain chores/tasks done. I know with a baby in the front, I can'[t always sweep or do dishes how I’d like so I love this alternative position. 6m+
  6. Back – If you’re going to be wearing a baby for a long time or if you’re carrying a larger child, this position is great. It takes the pressure off of your lower back and keeps the center of gravity inside the carrier. Your baby is able to sit comfortably.

This carrier is literally the perfect all-in-one carrier. Here are some other features for this carrier.

  1. Lumbar Support – I LOVE that this carrier includes lumbar support. Carrying around a 20lb+ baby all the time can be exhausting on your body. I love that the lumbar support is super comfortable and that it works really well. I never have lower back pain while using this carrier.
  2. Two-Way Strap – You can use the straps like a backpack, or you can cross them in the back which makes nursing and other tasks much easier. I actually have some friends who nurse on the go in their carriers.
  3. Sleeping Hood – Perfect for nursing on the go. The sleeping hood is also great for when your baby is asleep. You don’t have to worry about their head flopping around and hurting their neck. It also protects the baby against the elements (wind, rain, sun).
  4. Pocket – There is a pocket with a zipper that makes it easy to store cash or extra essentials when you’re out and about.
  5. Tall and Extendable Torso – Great for taller children. It helps support their necks and backs.
  6. Padded Shoulder Straps and Waist Belt – These are awesome for evenly distributing your child’s weight. It makes the carrier so comfortable to wear.

All-in-all, I love the LÍLLÉbaby Complete All Seasons 6-in-1 Carrier. One of the only things I would change is that in order to put your child in the carrier, you must take your shoulder straps off and place the baby inside. With my Infantino carrier, I’m able to unclip 2 snaps and I can place the baby inside and clip them back. I find the Infantino just a tad bit easier to put on by myself, but I do like the LÍLLÉbaby carrier a lot.

Gorgeous Stackable Rings from Everly

Everly Stackable Rings

I absolutely love jewelry so when I see pieces that are stunning, I have to get my hands on them. I find so many great shops and products through Instagram, which is where I found Everly. They make the most gorgeous rings. Whether you’re getting engaged, you feel like dressing up to go out to town, or if you just feel like spoiling yourself, Everly’s rings are perfect.

Everly Stackable Rings featuring the ZARA, DEVLIN, and SIA bands

I love the look of black diamonds, so I opted for a mixture of different bands when I chose my rings. Everly has an incredible deal where you can choose 3 stackable rings for $150. I have (from top to bottom) the Sia band, the Devlin band and the Zara band.

Everly stackable bands

The Sia band features .15 carrots of simulated diamonds. I chose mine with a black mix, but you can have all white simulated diamonds.

Everly Stackable bands with black and white simulated diamonds

The Zara band features .15 carrots of brilliant cut simulated diamonds. Again, I chose a mixture of black simulated diamonds for mine.

Stackable bands from Everly

And lastly, the Devlin band features .75 carrots of simulated diamonds. You can get a plain simulated white diamond ring or you can get a simulated white diamond and blue sapphire ring! Very pretty.

I love the idea of stackable rings because Everly has birthstone bands where you can get your own or your children’s birthstones in each ring. There are a lot of necklaces on the market that feature birthstones but I love the idea of rings. I tend to wear rings more so it makes more sense for me. I also like the fact that stackable rings don’t all have to be the same. You can mix and match colors and designs and it all coordinates well together.

Everly has so many different stones, metals, and designs. You’re sure to find something you absolutely love.

*Everly sent me these rings in exchange for an honest opinion. All opinions are 100% my own.

Celebrating International Literacy Day with Incredibundles

Incredibundles Literacy is so important, and I believe you can never be too young to enjoy a good book. That’s why it’s important to teach children to have a love for reading and writing even in their early years. This month, on September 8th, you can celebrate your love for literacy on International Literacy Day! Incredibundles has made it easy for kids to love reading by providing bundles of different books. You can collect classic books, fun toys, and gifts in bundles that are shipped to your or a friend’s door. Incredibundles and Melissa and Doug Blocks Incredibundles is an amazing company that has drastically changed the way people give gifts for baby showers and more. They’ve revamped the baby gift basket by opting for a reusable storage container that is oh-so-cute. You can enjoy award-winning products and books shipped in these wonderful storage containers by ordering them through their website. One thing that I love about Incredibundles is that for every bundle you purchase, they donate to charity and they have several charities that they work with. The Tale of Peter Rabbit book The process for ordering is simple. You can either pick an already made bundle from their website, OR you can create your own bundle. I created my own bundle and I found that purchasing everything à la carte worked wonderfully for me.   SkipHop Zoo Stack and Pour Cups My order was shipped quickly to me and it was packaged beautifully! Everything arrived in a very cute container. There was a bow around the container, bubble wrap to keep anything from shifting around, and there was tissue paper inside with a metal seal on it. Right away, I was impressed with the quality Incredibundles put into the packaging alone. Avery couldn’t keep her hands off anything I ordered for her, as you can see from the pictures. Haha 🙂 That let me know that what I picked for her was perfect. Incredibundles and Peter Rabbit Plush

So what did I pick for her?

Brown Bear and Friends Board Book Gift Set

Brown Bear & Friends Board Book Gift Set by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle

Some of the first books I ever remember from school. I especially remember “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See”. I think that book and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” are probably two of the most known and loved children’s books.

SkipHop Zoo Stack Cups

SkipHop Zoo Stack and Pour Cup Set

These all have different sized holes on the bottom so your child can put water in them and let the water pour out. They can also stack the cups as well.

Melissa and Doug ABC 123 Blocks

Melissa and Doug ABC/123 Wooden Blocks Set

I thought these would be fun for Avery to play around with. She can’t exactly make words out of the blocks yet, but in time she’ll be able to. In the mean time, she can toss these around and stack them.

Harold and the Purple Crayon

Harold and the Purple Crayon Illustrations

Harold and the Purple Crayon book by Crockett Johnson

Again, I remember this book from my early years in school. The illustrations will always be fresh in my mind. I love this book and I know Avery will too. I thought it would be fun to read this to her.

Incredibundles Peter Rabbit Plush

Peter Rabbit Plush Jacket Embroidery

Peter Rabbit Plush

To go along with her Peter Rabbit book, I got this beautiful, soft, plush bunny.  I love the quality of this plush. He has “Peter” embroidered onto his coat, as well as some other embroidery. He’s also a decent size. I thought he’d be fairly small, but he is a nice, medium size. Perfect for snuggling. Avery has already tried to poke his eyes more times than I can count. :’D

Good Night, I Love You book

Goodnight, I Love You book by Caroline Jayne Church

A super cute book for putting little ones to bed. It’s one of those classic, feel-good books.

Incredibundles Create a Bundle

The Tale of Peter Rabbit book by Beatrix Potter

My brothers and sisters and I used to read these books and watch the movies they made of them all the time. Our family loves Beatrix Potter books! When I saw this book on Incredibundles website, I had to get it for Avery. 🙂 I hope to keep this book in our family for a very long time.

Incredibundles Gift Set

All-in-all, I had a very pleasant experience with Incredibundles services. I think they’ve done an incredible job finding quality products for babies and children. Everything shipped quickly, was in excellent condition, and my daughter loved all the products. I’d definitely recommend Incredibundles to anyone who is looking to get presents for a baby shower or birthday.

Find Your Valuables with the Chipolo Tracker

Chipolo Tracker

Finding my valuables has become so much easier since having my Chipolo tracker. As a mom, I’m always feeling scatterbrained and I’m always busy doing a million things. I can never remember where my keys, purse, phone or many other things are. Chipolo has made losing my valuables a thing of the past!

I can connect my Chipolos to an app on my phone. Whenever I lose a valuable, I press the icon for it on my phone and it will play a ring tone on the corresponding Chipolo to help me find it. There’s also a map showing the location of the Chipolo.

So what if I lose my phone? I simply click the Chipolo twice and it will ring my phone even if it’s on SILENT. 😍 Which, if you’re like me happens way more than it should.

chipolo-app

 

Also, If I lose one of my valuables that has the Chipolo on it and someone else who has the app goes by that item, I get an email telling me the location of the item! I think that is so brilliant.

So what do I not love about the Chipolo? I only have two qualms so far.

  1. The Chipolo works through Bluetooth. So if you are out of range, you will not be able to connect to the Chipolo through your phone. The max range for the Chipolo to ring your item is 200 yards. But this decreases with walls, etc. I have only run into this issue once where I went to ring my Chipolo and because it was in the basement it didn’t ring. I figure it’s hard for a lot of cell phones to have service in a basement so it makes sense that it wouldn’t ring.
  2. One of the two styles of Chipolos has a non-replaceable battery. There is the Chipolo Classic and the Chipolo Plus. I have the Chipolo Plus, which has a non-replaceable battery. The battery is supposed to last 12 months. I will have to see how long mine lasts. The reason that the battery is non-replaceable is that with technology ever-changing they’d like you to change out Chipolos. There is a recycling program where you can return your old Chipolo to the company and they will give you up to a 50% discount off a new Chipolo. The price of one Chipolo is $24.99 so you wouldn’t be paying much at all to replace one. You also get a bigger price reduction by buying Chipolos in bulk.

All-in-all, the Chipolo is pretty great! It has saved my sanity more times than I can count. I love that it’s water resistant. It comes in 7 different colors. I have two Chipolos. One of them is in the color “Rose Quartz” and the other one is in “Pearl White”. They look so good with my Diaper bag and keys. I think it’s great that the ringtone is nice and loud too. It’s up to 100db which if you read this chart compares it to a power lawn mower’s noise level.

Zipadee-Zip Swaddle Transitioner Blanket + Giveaway

If you’ve swaddled your baby for a while but they’re starting to turn over, you may want to get a swaddle transitioner. I’ve been using the Zipadee-Zip for a few months now, and I love it. My daughter had been swaddled since birth so, naturally, I was worried about taking a swaddle away from her. The swaddle was comforting to her and also it was familiar.

I starting using the Zipadee-Zip when Avery was 4 months old – but that proved to be too soon for her. With teething going on, and so much mental transitioning, she just wasn’t ready for it. I decided to try it months later at 6-7 months and Avery slept wonderfully in it. I would say the biggest thing is to not compare your child to anyone else’s. Do what works for your child.

As far as transitioning Avery when she was older, it was seamless. I’m glad that I waited a bit to use a transitioner with her. Her first night (at 6-7 months) with the Zipadee-Zip she slept with no problems. The nights thereafter, she slept great too.

What I love about the Zipadee-Zip is that Avery has a blanket to keep her warm. I don’t have to worry about the material covering her face or anything scary like that. Because Avery used to take naps with me nearby, I’d let her use a blanket. So she became comfortable with a blanket. At night, that posed a problem. Thankfully, the Zipadee-Zip solved that problem for me. I love that it’s easy to put on to her. I simply put her arms and legs in and I zip it up. If she happens to turn over in the night, it’s no problem because she is able to use her hands and arms to move around. One thing that is great about the Zipadee-Zip is that it helps with the startle reflex in babies. It has a wing design so there is a slight resistance if the child puts their arms out.

I’d definitely recommend the Zipadee-Zip to moms whose children have been swaddled. It’s the perfect way to transition your child to sleeping without the swaddle.

The makers of the Zipadee-Zip also make teethers! My daughter absolutely loves hers. I clip it to her outfit and she’s able to grab it and gnaw on the silicone shapes. There is also a piece of fabric with a snap button on the opposite end of the clip so that I can attach a binky to the teether. Let me just tell you now that I have tried numerous teethers with Avery and she will hardly ever touch them. This one is one of her absolute favorites! 🙂
