Growing Like A Weed

Children's growth is quite rapid during their first year, then slows until their second birthday. From year 2 until puberty, a typical growth pattern of a child is in the area of 2.5 inches per year.
At this rate, it feels like your child will end up a giant! We, as parents, tend to take an occasional moment to cherish our babies' baby-ness, realizing that they do grow so fast.
Recording your child's growth will forever keep their baby-ness in your memory. Hip growth charts from Dolce Mia are sure to add a little flair to baby's room, too! From trucks and farms to butterflies and cowboys, Dolce Mia's collection will keep 'em growing in style. Each Growth Chart comes equipped with all the growing essentials, such as 20 stickers to mark special occasions. Geez, they do grow fast!

Make Brushing Easy: The Fire Fly Tooth Brush

The Fire Fly Tooth Brush by Dr. Fresh is pure genius! We just picked one up at Target for under $1.00 and my son thinks it's the best thing on Earth! The Fire Fly Tooth Brush lights up (with blinking lights) for 60 seconds when you push the bottom of it. It flashes for 60 seconds and then automatically shuts off. This helps teach little ones, and big ones too, how long they need to brush. You can start with one minute, and then move on to longer amounts as your child gets older. The goal is to brush for 3 minutes. The Fire Fly comes in 6 different colors and for under a dollar, you can afford buy one of each! You will love this! This product is available in most chain type stores, however I found them online for a great deal too. Visit http://www.dentist.net/fire-fly-toothbrush.asp and get 2 for only $1.75 plus shipping!

Birthday Suit Body Butter

This is body butter is awesome! It smells absolutely delicious too, sort of like angel food cake! Mmmmmm!!! It is so rich and creamy and not at all greasy. Body Suit Body Butter is spiked with Shea Butter for moisturizing and Jojoba oil to maintain hydration. It also has little Vita Burst beads which dissolve and release Tricolsan and Vitamin E.

I would definitely recommend Body Suit Body Butter to all my fellow Swanky Moms!

Visit www.raw-beauty.com to re-hydrate your birthday suit!

Almost Too Cute to Eat!

Too bad Valentine's Day is only a few days away, as these would've been a great little item to pass out to loved ones! These adorable photo cookies by Mrs. Beasley's are almost too cute to eat. The cookies come in a variety of shapes, including a circle, rectangle, and even a heart! Any scanned photo can be used and you upload right on their site. The cookies can be shipped anywhere and have a long shelf life as well. If you have a store near you, they can be ordered online and picked up at the shop. This would make a SUPER CUTE birth announcement or you could even send one wrapped in cello with pretty ribbon along with a birthday, anniversary, engagement, or shower invitation. SO CUTE!

A Must Have for Pregnant Women!

This great new product is called Bella Band. It is a fashion accessory that all pregnant women must have! Bella Band is a seemless knit band that you wear at your waistline. Use it over your unbuttoned pre-pregnancy pants or over slightly big maternity pants (no one will have a clue that your pants don't fit!). Wear it to keep your belly covered when your maternity shirt rises or is just to short at the end of pregnancy. It gives a cute layered look to your tops. If Bella Band was out when I was pregnant, I would have had one in each of the 7 great colors!

Snuggle Heart Comfy

Tots and Tails Designs also make a similar blanket for boys the shape of a cowboy boot for the little cowboy in your life! Very unique and so swanky!!

Sassy Baby makes your travelling life a little easier with disposable changing pads, colorful utensils, and the On-The-Go Feeding Set.
TravelingWithKids.com offers some helpful tips on airplane travel, road trips, and around town adventures with children. With a huge assortment of such travel accessories as the 4-in-1 Germ Protector table bib, TravelingWithKids.com is one site you should not leave home without!

Love the Artwork, Hate the Clutter?

Ever since my son started preschool, I've had a wonderful collection of artwork to display. We used the fridge until the clutter started driving me crazy! I have found the perfect solution for fridge clutter. Pottery Barn makes a "card holder" that can be used to display photos, artwork, etc. neatly anywhere in the house. We installed ours in the kitchen and can now proudly display all of the treasures from school. This item is worth every penny. It looks great and serves a great purpose as well. Also, during the holidays, it will be a perfect place to display cards! Order one today--I'm not sure if it is seasonal, but Pottery barn tends to cycle through their products pretty regularly.

No Time To Make Baby Food?

If you are like me, you have about a million things to do in a short day's time. Making your own baby food may be on your list, too. While you likely want to avoid pesticides, sugar, salt, preservatives and colors in your baby's food, you still do not have to make it yourself. Have somebody else make it! Here are some organic baby food companies, some created by moms and dads, who saw the need for a healthy baby food solution to offer to busy-but healthy-families:
  • Canada: BoBoBaby : Frozen entrees, available in your grocer's freezer
  • LA Area:Bohemian Baby: Gourmet meals delivered to your door weekly
  • U.K.:Hipp Organic : Jars, Juices, Cereals, Formula, available at your grocer
  • U.S./Canada:Earth's Best : Jars and Cereals, available at your grocer
  • Europe/Australia:
  • Baby Nat & Kalibio: Jars, Snacks, Juices, Cereals for kids, available at your grocer
No matter where you live, moms and dads are always looking for the same thing: a healthy menu for their children!
