Jolimini Diaper Review & Giveaway ***CLOSED***



I came across the Jolimini while looking through Etsy stores for cloth diapers. Janie has some of
the cutest designs for diapers that I have seen. I have been putting Sweet Pea in the cloth diapers during the day and disposables at night only. I have put her in several different cloth diapers and
she just peed right out of them so I wasn't to happy because I had them on her as tight as I could and they didn't require a cover so why she peed right out of them I'm not sure. Now when I put her in
the diaper from the Jolimini she was happy which she hardly is when it comes to getting her diaper changed. The diaper was svery soft and Sweet Pea seems like she was very comfortable in it.





The outside of Sweet Pea's diaper is PUL fabric that is embroderied with a cowboy/girl riding a bronco. The inside of Sweet Pea's diaper is lined with microfleece which is very soft and comfortable for Sweet Pea's little bum. This is a pocket diaper with and I used a Bamboo one size insert with it.
I am now a huge fan of the Jolimini diapers and will be investing in more to add to Sweet Pea's
stash. I guarntee if you try her diapers you will love them as well. Most of the other mass produced brands dont fit exactly right and you end up getting peed on that was not the case with this diaper. It fit perfectly to her tiny little bottom and legs.




There are so many great color choices and prints too go look around Janie's Etsy Shop and pick one up today. You can purchase the diapers for $27.00up to $30.00! Janie has also generously offered
a giveaway of one of her diapers!!

Funky Monkey Snacks Review & Giveaway ***CLOSED***


What kind of snacks do your kids eat?? Gummies, chips, candy etc... Sound familiar? Ever
wish there was a good on the run snack you could give them other then all the junk? Then you'll want to try Funky Monkey Snacks!! Funky Monkey Snacks are a line of freeze-dried
fruit that are Organic, 100% natural, Vegan approved, 100% real fruit, and delicious! They contain 3 servings of fruit in each of the 1oz bags! The "fruit that crunches" provides the ultimate snack, by combining
the great taste and nutritional goodness of fresh fruit in a conventional snack.
Freeze-drying the fruit just removes the water and oxygen from it, leaving all the nutrients and flavor in the fruit still. You get left with tasty, crunchy, ready-to-eat fruit slices that
are easy to grab and go. Without all the added dyes, flavors or preservatives.


Here are some more great Funky Monkey tidbits:
  • Funky Monkey Snacks have no added colors/dyes, flavors, sugars, or preservatives
  • Their special, proprietary manufacturing process provides for a crunchier texture           vs. conventional freeze-drying techniques 
  • They use full slices and pieces of delicious, fresh fruit 
  •  Funky Monkey is made in Brazil using tropical fruits at the peak of freshness
  • Their products are Organic, gluten-free, vegan approved, certified Kosher,            and certified non-GMO
  • One of their 7 flavors, Purple Funk, also includes a├žai, a berry from the Amazon
    that is
    viewed
    as the newest superfood


Bubba and Pumpkin tried Funky Monkey Snacks, the freeze-dried fruits that come in seven different flavor combinations from recognizable to somewhat exotic:

  • Apples with Cinnamon
  • Bananas with Cinnamon
  • Banana with Acai
  • Carnaval Mix - banana, pineapple, apple and papaya
  • Mango with Orange Juice
  • Pineapple with Guava
  • Pineapple with Lime



So what did Bubba and Pumpkin think of Funky Monkey Snacks??? Bubba not a fan he
prefers his fruit fresh and no other way. Pumpkin liked them not every flavor though. I didn't even get to sample all seven because Pumpkin gobbled them up so fast. It's nice to find a
kid-friendly, on-the-go snack that doesn't have any questionable ingredients in it just fruit, fruit juice, and cinnamon, depending on the flavor. The single-serving pouches are very lightweight and they allow me to control the portions and there convenient!

Buy it:  You can purchase Funky Monkey snacks on Amazon.com

Pea Wee Baby Review


I have had the great opportunity to review a Swaadlebuddy Sack by Pea Wee Baby. Tamara is the owner and founder of Pea Wee Baby. Pea Wee Baby was born out of necessity.  Due to Tamara's newborn daughter being a swaddle houdini, and she was desperate for a decent stretch of sleep. As most mothers are with a newborn baby.  Once she found something that worked for them, she felt she had to put it out there for other mamas with their own
swaddle houdinis! I have a couple different swaddles that I use for Sweet Pea at night. She
is luckily not a swaddle houdini unless I just swaddle her in a blanket.





Tamara makes four different swaddles the Swaddlebuddy Sack, Swaddlebuddy Suits, SwaddleBuddy and the SwaddleBuddy Blanket Set. Depending on the personality of your
child and their sleep habits there is a Swaddlebuddy for you. I always make sure that Sweet Pea can get her hands out of the swaddles because she likes to suck on them and her thumb occassionally if she can find it. She doesn't care to much if her feet are out unless I have socks on them. If I have socks on her feet she doesn't want them covered she is a silly girl. Thats why I choose to review the Swaddlebuddy Sack. Because as long I didn't have socks on Sweet Pea and her hands were free she was a Happy Baby.


The Swaddlebuddy Sack made it easy for me to nurse Sweet Pea during the night. All I had
to do was pick her up and hold her no needing to fuss with blankets to keep her warm. It
also was very convient for co-sleeping because I could easily hold Sweet Pea and not worry about her losing here blanket or it bunching up on her. When I first got the Swaddlebuddy Sack I was so confused on how to use it. Even the directions seemed foreign to me, but I was also going on very little sleep. lol Once I was rested good it all made sense to me. Surprising what a good rest does for the body. Tamaras swaddle are made of very soft strechy fabric.

I would have to say that I would recommend Tamaras Swaddlebuddys to anyone with a newborn. You just need to know which one would work best for your baby and your baby's needs. Tamara also has other great items that she makes jump on over to here website and check it out. Pea Wee Baby and stop by her facebook page and say Hi from Andersons Angels.

WubbaNub Review & Giveaway ***CLOSED***



How the WubbaNub came to be...  While on a family vacation that was supposed to be a
 relatively relaxing, enjoyable time instead was replaced with non-stop fussing and crying of the
 baby.  After an entire night of the ever-persistent "missing pacifier syndrome", Carla knew she
 needed to take matters into her own hands.  She went and got the hotel sewing kit and took one of
her baby's soft plush animals and sewed the pacifier right onto it. Thus, allowing for a  happy
ending for the Schneider family's vacation and the birth of the first WubbaNub!
Bubba was a big pacifier baby and it took us until he was 3 to get rid of it. Now Pumpkin wanted nothing to do with a pacifier only took one for about a month and then would not take it anymore.
I figure since I had one that liked the pacifier and one that didn't I wouldn't try to give Sweet Pea
one. But when she spent the first day and a half in the NICU unit without being able to eat they gave her a pacifier to calm her. From then on she has had a pacifier.




Sweet Pea received the elephant WubbaNub to try out and she absolutely loves it.  It is light weight enough that when she is sitting up it doesn't fall out of her mouth, yet heavy enough that when she was first figuring out how to  suck on her bink it stayed close to her mouth.  I also love that they are made with the Soothie medical grade latex free pacifier that is distributed in most hospitals.

Here are some more fantastic features of the WubbaNub:
  • Distributed in hospitals, NICU and well-baby units nationwide
  • Made with a Soothie™ medical grade, latex free pacifier
  • BPA, PVC and Phthalate Free
  • The durable one-piece construction means no germs hiding between cracks so the pacifier stays cleaner.
  • WubbaNub™ functions as one! Patented design prevents pacifier from being lost, dropped or even forgotten!
  • Carefully calculated weight and size of plush animal keeps the WubbaNub™ near baby's
     mouth, whether lying on side or back, the car seat, sling or stroller.
  • Plush animal makes it easy for baby to grasp and manipulate the pacifier.
  • Easy to clean: place in washing machine with baby's laundry, gentle cycle in mesh laundry bag. Allow to air dry. 
 I love that when Sweet Pea is in her car seat or swing and it happens to fall from her mouth we are easily able to find it and give it back to her!  Makes life much easier for the family. 

There are lots of different adorable WubbaNubs to choose from.... here are some of my favorites.
 WubbaNubs can be purchased from quite a few online stores and cost approximately $15.
They also make WubbaNub pouches and Wubbie blankets.

Now for the exciting part.... you can win a WubbaNub for your little one right here!!!

Good/Bad Weeks

Wow where to begin March  has been a month of ups and downs for my family. The beginnig of the month was great. My wonderful hsband surprised me with a new ring that has our families
 birthstones in it and his and my names on the side. He had the ring custom made and I LOVE IT...
 Last week was going good Sweet Pea had her one month check up and is growing like a weed. She
now weighs 9lbs 2oz and is 22 1/4in longs she was 7lbs 8oz and 20in long when she was born. :-)
Then Saturday night my Uncle passed away and the everything has been going downhill from there it seems. My family had a gt together in honor of my Uncle and no one bothered to call and let me
know. Then yesterday Bubba got suspended from school  for three days for using not nice words on the bus. Needless to say my husband and I are not happy at all. Took Pumpkin to the eye specialist to find out that his left eye and brain are not communicating like they should so he can barely see out of his left eye. We are waiting on his glasses to come in and he goes back to the specialist in 4 weeks. Hopefully the glasses are working at helping correct and bring back the vision in his eye. Otherwise
we will have to patch his right eye to make the left work, which will be very hard on him because he won't be able to see for awhile. Things have been getting fiance wise because Jake took a new job and has not got paid for the month of March and will not receive a check till April. So I am going to start watching a friends boys for her a couple times a week to help bring in some income as well. Cloth diapering Sweet Pea is going great and i'm loving it and Jake is starting to get into along with my in-laws and my parents since the price of dispoables are going up. Sweet Pea is doing great nursing as well. I am loving all the time I am getting to spend with her and Pumpkin since I am not going back to work instead working from home. :-) Bubba is gonna be starting T-Ball soon and is enjoying doing his
 4-H projects the one is doing really good. Happenings of the Harper Household has a really great giveaway going on currently for anyone who lives in our local area or is willing to drive. She has been lucky enough to get the chance to review the Sesame Street Live Show, and is giving away a pack of 4 tickets to the show. Needless to say I am trying to get those tickets. We took Bubba to see Sesame Street Live when he was about 1 1/2 before we moved to Georgia on a business venture that didnt work out and we came back to Ohio.

Softbots Diaper Review & Giveaway ***CLOSED***


I came across Softbots’ while searching around facebook looking for more information on Cloth Diapers when I was expecting my daughter. I sent them a email to inquire about doing a review
on one of there diapers. Which worked out to be God's perfect timing, because they were looking for a way to expand there fan base and get more people to know about their Cloth Diapers ( Nappies). Softbots’ is an Australian mom/daughter company. My husband says that Tasha (the daughter) is the Australian version of me. :-) Tasha initially looked into Modern Cloth Diapers (Nappies) while she was pregnant with her son in 2006. She didn’t look too much into them when she saw the price per diaper and instead opted for flannelette squares and snibs; a decision that she quickly regretted. She has tried a wide range of cloth diapers from flannelette squares, terry squares and fitted cotton with a wide range of covers to All In One’s and Pockets. She liked using the pocket diapers but found them to be quite expensive and still
without all the features that she was wanting in a Cloth Diaper. Her mom then mentioned that she could easily make them with the features on Tasha's wish list. After many hours surfing the net researching patterns and fabrics, Softbots’ was born, using a pattern that they developed using
 the trial and error method.



The first time I put Sweet Pea in the Softbots’ diaper I took it right back off her because it looked
so big on her. I then emailed Tasha who told me how to make it fit a newborn since the diaper is made to fit Newborns up to Toddlers. I was just not doing it right, but hey I am a first time cloth diapering mom so I am learning. :-) Softbots’ diapers are made with care using high quality fabrics.  The pockets are made with an outer layer of breathable, waterproof  PUL and a stay-dry inner layer of suedecloth. The layer of suedecloth makes them nice and soft on the baby's skin. I am a momma that is all about soft on my children and myself. The absorbent inserts are made from bamboo fleece or microfibre. There wetbags are also made of PUL, making them perfect for storing your diapers when you’re out and about. They easily fit about 4 diapers in them. The wetbag can then be placed in the washing machine with your diapers so it will be clean and ready for your next outing.


As you can tell by the pictures Sweet Pea was not in a picture mood this day. The diaper fit her very well though it looks big in the pictures. Sweet Pea refused to let me get a good picture showing the fit of the diaper. We had no leaks from the diaper when Sweet Pea went to the restroom. Which is great since lately Sweet Pea's BM's have been pretty watery. Sorry if that's
TMI but anyone who is reading this should be used to that kinds of stuff. :-) Ok so you know you are interested and wanting to try the Softbots' Diaper so you should go check out their website
and see what all they have to offer. But one of you lucky followers has a chance to win one yep
you read that right you have a chance to win your own Softbots' Diaper.
