You may remember back in November when the Cape Cod Moms Blog featured a giveaway on the Baby Banana Brush that a lovely local mom named Laura won. Well now the banana is back (courtesy of the Baby Banana Brush company who sent us one to facilitate an honest review) and this little man wants to share his thoughts on his new brush with all his little friends!
When my little guy started to get multiple teeth, I was nervous about how I could convince a one year old to brush them every day like the doctor instructed me. I can barely get him to sit still some days, let alone stick something in his mouth and diligently clean his tiny teeth. One day, while shopping on Amazon, I received a recommendation telling me “your baby might like…” It was the baby banana toothbrush. I saw the great reviews and thought, “well what do I have to lose at that price?”
From the moment I showed him how to put the banana toothbrush in his mouth, he was hooked. The bright yellow color made it instantly recognizable and almost like a toy at first. The two handles are perfect for his little hands to hold and swish it around his mouth, like a pro. Now we brush our teeth together every day, another way he can be just like mommy. I would definitely recommend this toothbrush to other toddler moms who are looking for a fun way to introduce good hygiene habits to their little ones!

If you are like me, then the only time you think about your choice of light bulbs is when they burn out. However, with rising cost of electricity, it is a thought that should be on all of our minds when managing the household budget. With this in mind, I attended the Cree Great American Light Bulb Swap on Friday 11/21 in Downtown Crossing, Boston. During this event I exchanged an outdated incandescent bulb for a brand new Cree LED bulb. There was a fun mascot “Bulby” and a ring toss game, but the biggest attraction was the free exchange of used incandescent and CFL bulbs for the new LED bulbs. For those who bring in CFL bulbs, there is the added benefit of being able to properly dispose of the mercury, which can be a nuisance. I am excited to see if the LED bulb lives up to its reputation of being 85% more efficient, thereby reducing my electric bill and the need to change it over and over again. #SwitchtoCree

When I first became a mom last summer, I was determined to breastfeed my child. No one can prepare you for how tough it is with a newborn and how it changes your identity as a woman and a wife or girlfriend. Plus the underwear choices out there for a nursing mother are not the most attractive – cotton nursing tanks and full coverage lycra nursing bras are my everyday attire. The detachable straps that you can quickly unhook and rehook when your baby is screaming for food are key in those early days. When I went shopping at a big chain store, I wondered why there not more stylish, and frankly, prettier options. That is why when I received my Hot Milk Eclipse nursing bra that they generously sent me, I was pleasantly surprised that not only was it fully functional for the nursing mother, but also very sexy. Sexier even than most of my pre-mommy lingerie! The black lace and jeweled decal give it just the right look to entice your significant other and also helped me to feel a whole lot better about my postpartum figure. At the same time, I am able to nurse and pump with ease, as the straps are just as easy to hook as my plain-jane full coverage nursing bra from the big chain store. I have to admit that I plan to continue using the Hot Milk bra even after I stop nursing and pumping, as it is one of the sexiest bras I own!
