Unique Parenting Time & Hassle Savers!

Fox 2 News Headlines


IMG_0935FIX (2) (754x800) (603x640) I am the proud Mommy of a very time consuming, six year old, sweet little lady. Being a parent is a full time job, that does not even end while you are sleeping. I am always looking for ways to save time with no hassles. It is not easy, but there are more and more items coming out these days to make that possible! This morning, I am lucky enough to be making an appearance on WJBK-TV Detroit’s FOX2 news at about 8:15am EST. I am VERY excited & nervous! My ultimate goal is to introduce the viewers to five items that can help parents save time – hassle free!! After I introduce each item here, please make sure you tune into FOX2 and see them with your own eyes! As an extra bonus, we are going to give a few products away!!! Baby B'Air 1 (2)The first item is the Baby B’Air. It is a baby/toddler in-flight safety vest that allows parents to seat their babies and toddlers on their laps comfortably during flight while safely secured in the Baby B’Air which attaches easily to the parent with the use of their seat belt.  The item retails for $34.95.   For more information please check out their web site babybair.com.   I never traveled, on a flight with my daughter. However, after allowing a few friends, who are travelers, examine it. They agreed it was a great way to securely & comfortably have their child sitting safely in their laps on a flight.  I have also included the sizing chart, to see if this might work on your next flight!


      • Infant/Newborn Fits most children up to 6 months.



    • Neck opening is not adjustable.



    • SMALL fits child up to 40 lbs with head measuring less than 16 inches around.



      • Toddler Fits most children from 6 months to 2 years.



    • Neck opening is not adjustable.



    • LARGE fits child up to 40 lbs with head measuring from 16 to 20 inches around.


      STcategory.3 The second item is the Snack Trap. It is a tip-resistant, handled toddler snack cup with a unique lid that allows toddlers to learn to feed themselves with out the mess. Snack Trap is BPA free and comes in several materials including stainless steel. They retail for $4.99. Head to snacktrap.com for more info! We used something similar to these when my daughter was younger. These are amazing and work very well. They were perfect for snacking in the car. Flexi-Fit 1 The third item is the Flexi-Fit. It is a fully, size adjustable, toilet training seat that can easily be attached/detached to/from any standard toilet seat, ensuring children feel secure and comfortable. It retails for $19.95. For more information please see pourty.com. My daughter is 6 years old, and I clearly remember numerous times her potty training seat, slipping off the toilet. Honestly, she fell into the toilet, on many occations. There were a few times, she actually fell off the side of our toilet, hitting her head on our sink. The Flexi-Fit would be a great addition to any home that has a smaller child that is in the process of using the ‘BIG’ ‘KID’ Toilet!!! It is safely secure, easy to clean, and sterdy – very important to our little ones!

  The fourth item is the Banda Bib. It is a unique bandana shaped bib that allows it to safely and comfortably fit closer to the chin than any other bib, ensuring catching all drool.  Also, less cumbersome than other bibs making it comfortable for baby to wear all day.  It retails for $8.99,   For more information please check out their website bazzlebaby.com   I can recall, like yesterday droll dripping down my daughter’s chin. I was so grossed out, especially when it would get stuck in the rolls of her neck. 9I know this sound really gross BUT it happens)! Anyway, I tried the bib on my adorable 9 month old, niece, Keira – and it worked perfectly! Check out all the other designs and colors they have! Also, YOU are lucky enough to try and WIN ONE FOR YOURSELF! Please enter by using the RaffleCopter form BELOW! But, don’t forget to read about the last two items first!   No-Spill 2   The fifth group of items are Kids No-Spill Bottle Caps. These will replace the original bottle cap of any leading water and juice drink. The bottle is ready for no-spill drinking.  Adapters for all the leading drink bottles included with each pack of No-Spill Bottle Caps.  The pack retails for $6.99. It contains two (2) Red Bottle Caps and three (3) Ring Adapters.   For more information, please see their website snacktrap.com   I am a huge fan of these little, hassle-free devices! My daughter insisted on drinking out of water bottles from a very young age. I cannot even tell you how many times, she spilled them on herself, myself, or something very important. We still utilize these to this day! Anytime I have shared them with other Mommies, Daddies, Nanas, Gaglas (my daughter’s name for my Dad), or grandparents they have asked me where I have gotten them. I even used them for gifts! Very highly recommended from our house to yours!   Sidekick 15   The last item is the Sidekick. It is the world’s first and only fullly functioning diaper bag and baby carrier all in one. It retails for  $120, but it is worth every penny!   Please check out their website for more products  gogobabyz.com.   I have to admit, I am rather jealous! I wish they would have had something like this when my daughter was younger. It is designed for use by babies with good head control, weighing up to 35 pounds – unfortunately my daughter doesn’t meet the criteria! Instead of me walking with a crooked hip, for years, due to her resting on it – I could have had this unique, hassle-free diaper bag! Great idea!   All these items are fantastic! They can help any parents, grandparents, nannies, etc with the children!   Now, for the GOOD NEWS! I am giving away 2 prizes to 2 different winners!! Follow the directions below to be entered in the GIVEAWAY!   You will have your choice of one of two Banda Bibs.   1. Navy Sailor Stripe Banda Bib II   2. Rock Star Banda Bib II   GOOD LUCK!!! a Rafflecopter giveaway
