Luvs Night Lock Diapers Review and #giveaway

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Luvs. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine

Recently we had the opportunity to review the Luvs brand disposable diapers. Normally we use only cloth but Luvs is a brand I never thought to use in the past. I figured since they were cheaper that meant they didn't work well. However, the NEW NightLock diapers are totally different! They work wonders! 
Granted other known brands can hold a bit more, these work great for nighttime. We also used them on long car rides with no problem or leaks. They are also incredibly soft. 
Aria fit into them perfectly and she is 19 lbs. The size three works for a great range of sizes. 

Luvs with Night Lock isn't available on retailer shelves nationwide until September 16th. I am super happy to be able to share this exclusive sneak peak with all of you!

Luvs with NightLock offers the ultimate in overnight protection for baby AND a good night ahead for Mom with: 

  • More Absorbency over Huggies Snug & Dry.
  • Less Leaks.
  • Leak Barrier Leg Gathers to keep leaks away. Keeping the mess inside.
  • TWO adorable monkey designs.
  • The Lus Money Back Guarantee! You can't go wrong.
Plus, beginning September 16, 2013, to coincide with Luvs with Night Lock appearing on shelves, for the first time EVER, Luvs will be offering print-at-home coupons

September 16th will also see Luvs releasing a new series of our beloved "First Kid/Second Kid" commercials on their YouTube page. Who else loves those commercials? The breastfeeding mom one is my favorite. Totally true! And I have three kids, so what does that mean? haha

SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount F180 Giveaway

***Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All information and product has been supplied by SANUS. All opinions are 100% honest and have not been influenced in any way.***

One of the first things that most parents do when preparing for the arrival of a new child is to “childproof” the house. I have three kids, so I know this routine all too well. Wall outlets get covers, cabinets get latches or hooks, drawers get catches, doorknobs get covers, stairs and doorways get gates, and so on and so forth.

For many Americans, a flat panel TV is a great way to enjoy family time and entertainment. However, most parents are unaware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for kids. Due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.

Bringing this risk to the forefront, SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide. By educating consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s, SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities.

A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:

· A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV

· Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury

· Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over

· An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs

· Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006 to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%

SANUS TV Mounting Tips: 
Easy 1, 2, 3 installation with a wall template to ensure even placement Online video walkthrough of simple installation available at any time
No additional tools necessary – all required installation hardware is included in package
Live customer support available 6 days a week

Win it: One lucky winner will receive a SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount F180, courtesy of SANUS (installation not included). Use the rafflecopter form to enter. Please note that you must be at least 18 and live in the US to win. No PO boxes. Winner will have 48 hours to respond.
Giveaway will end on 7/1/2013.

Brown Cow Cotton Diapers

I recently got the chance to review a diaper from Brown Cow Cotton Diapers. We only received the diaper shell, but Elissa does make flats/inserts as well. I just used only of the flats I already use with it. Maybe one day she will allow me to share those awesome babies with all of you! Because since the Flats and Handwashing Challenge, I am IN LOVE with using flats and snappis.

No pictures, please!

I absolutely LOVE the print she chose for us. It says Reuse right on the bum. The hear mimics the universal recycle symbol as well. Isn't that the cutest thing? I'm in awe.

What is the shell made of?

The cover is three layers.  

  • The outer layer is a cute cotton print.
  • The inner layer is soft and absorbent organic cotton
  • Also, a hidden layer of PUL.  

I kind of wish the snaps were hidden, but that isn't a problem. It is more for cosmetic reasons if anything.

There are three hip snaps and the diaper is a four step (as opposed to the three) step rise. You can't reuse it as you can with regular PUL shells, but it gets the job done. Aria looked so cute in her diaper. Daddy even loved it.

We can easily fold up our flats and snappi them on, follow up with the Brown Cow cotton shell.

I do believe it is a smaller size diaper. It took some pulling at the wings to get all of the snaps.

I did however see that Brown Cow Cotton's Etsy store does sell Snap Snuggies to keep these snaps off of baby's skin if you need them though. I cannot say as far as absorbancy goes for it as I used my flat. But it did not leak. We had no issues what so every and it is a perfect combo for even a padfold.

This is a one size cover that fits most babies from 8-35 pounds. I definitely think this could have fit Aria when a newborn.

This is what the wing snaps look like. I probably wouldn't have to fight with them so much if the were an inch longer.

Check out her adorable covers and awesome flats on Facebook and on Etsy.
"she is currently on vacation as of 6/8."

Also, stay tuned for our giveaway June 12!

Real Kids Shades Review & Giveaway 6/1-6/10

Real Kids Shades Review & Giveaway

Hosted by: So Sew Mama

When Real Kids Shades emailed me to ask that I do a review and giveaway for their awesome shades, I just could not refuse. What kid doesn't love sunglasses? I know that mine do, minus the little lady of course. But it's baby thing. We were sent three pairs of kids shades, one for each kiddo.

I have a serious squinting problem. Bad eyes due to years of sun exposure. I remember the game where you look up at the sun. Yeah, not good when you are older. Hopefully my kids are not as dumb. So now I have to wear them year-round. My kids use them as soon as the warmer weather arrives. Although I realize that it probably would be best for them to even in the winter months.

The “shatterproof, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses” are a must for kids. I know that I have smashed or crushed several glasses in my day. Actually just last week I broke a pair by simply dropping them. Cheap is only good is they last. That was a fail. My $4 sunglasses broke by just falling on carpet.

Sadly, these glasses stood the ultimate test with my kids. If it CAN be broken, my kids will break it. That is just what they did. Some how.

How did this happen? Well the lens fell out, not really sure how that happened. And someone crushed it. I have no words. This was just yesterday while in the yard playing. My poor 4 year old is glass-less now. But hey, they didn't nap in half. Oh well.

The Real Kids Shades’ frames are so ultra-flexible that you can literally take them by the stems and twist them from side to side.
Real Kids Shades protect your child’s eyes from both UVA and UVB rays – and are tested by a third party to ensure they block 100 per cent of harmful rays. Read more about the science behind why it’s imperative to invest in good-quality sunglasses for your kids.
They were having a great time at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI. It was a great time to try out their new shades.

The Features:

  • Third-party verification of 100% 
  • UV-A/UV-B protection 
  • Shatterproof and impact-resistant 
  • polycarbonate lenses 
  • Wrap-around frames to protect from peripheral light 
  • A comfortable fit – not too tight, not too loose 
  • Transparent enough to see your child’s eyes 
  • Tested to contain no lead, bisphenol A or phthalates 
  • A strong warranty – high quality
  • manufacturers stand behind their sunglasses with significant replacement guarantees
Even though we had an accident with a pair, we still love Real Kids Shades and they are a great investment. They shouldn't break either. It does happen though. Kids will be kids. I am sure my son had something to do with that too. You should feel confident that your children's eyes are well protected. It is a great buy.

Why Rent Timeshares? *Giveaway*

It's always a great idea to have a family vacation. It is the perfect way to create new memories and just get away. I know I cannot wait for our First vacation.The chores of daily life can really ware out a mama, or dada. 

The fact is, it can be expensive. 

Timeshares can really help cut the cost in half! If you factor in how much the average hotel room or suite will cost for a family of four, you will understand. I also have a family of 5, so this just wouldn't be great. We need a two bedroom at least! You can buy a timeshare and save yourself the agony of a useless hotel for practically the same cost! It pays off in the long run. Renting a timeshare is great way to cut the cost and borrow a space. Definitely a great idea if you are "shopping" for a new getaway destination. Which is great for yearly vacations.

What's more, you get that perfect home away from home feel. Usually with a full kitchen! Definitely a win-win for everyone involved.

HOT destinations:


HOT resorts:

Disney's Beach Club Villas

Marriott's Maui Ocean Club
The Manhattan Club
The Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas is a great resource for searching or selling timeshares. Once I logged on I had the chance to sign up as a guest. That is one feature I am particular about. Why purchase something that you are not sure will work for you? A membership however, gives you bit more access and the ability to sell or purchase. This way you know what you are REALLY getting for your money. There is also a great forum on 

I was curious to see what that was all about. If you are looking to sell or rent a timeshare than is your destination. Their website is so easy to navigate. I had no problem search "kid friendly" timeshare rentals.

You can also chat with real people!

I found a great resort in Orlando, Florida for just $71 a night. That is such a great deal. It was extremely easy to find pricing. I really enjoyed "shopping" on I'm hopeful now to be able to find something that is easy on my wallet. is giving one of my reader a FREE 2 year membership to!
