Peek Away 4 in 1 Essentials Nursing Kit Review!

Peek-Away-1024x607

The Peek Away 4 in 1 Essentials Nursing Kit is a must have for all on-the-go breastfeeding mothers.  Peek Away helps to make every nursing and diaper changing experience feel just as comfortable as if you were at home.

Peek Away is an award winning traveling nursing pillow and changing station.  Not only are the Peek Away Nursing Kits super cute and trendy, they are also multi-functional.  Once spring and summer hit, we are constantly on the move.  Between birthday parties, play dates, softball games, cookouts and walks to the park, I need something that is quick and easy to grab that stores exactly what I need.

I love the built in pockets which hold exactly what I need when I’m on the go.  I don’t ALWAYS want to carry a large diaper bag and sometimes I don’t need to.  Even when we take a walk to the park or around town, it’s easy to just grab my Peek Away and go.  It holds everything I need.

Have you ever been somewhere that doesn’t have a changing station?  I know when we are at our 12 year old’s softball games, it’s a huge rarity to find a bathroom with a changing station.  And let’s face it, those flimsy pads that come with diaper bags just don’t cut it.  With the Peek Away, I can change Olive comfortably on a picnic table, the ground, a bleacher, or even in the back of my mini-van.  The pad has a wonderfully soft foam layer and is super sturdy.  I love that I don’t have to rummage through a large diaper bag to find a diaper or wipes, it’s all right in front of me and within arms reach!

Did I mentioned the nursing cover yet?  It’s huge!  When I feel I need some privacy, the nursing cover has got me covered.  I always have my little Olive with me when I teach Sunday School so when she’s hungry, I can slip on the nursing cover and feed her.  It’s 100% cotton and allows for easy viewing of baby’s every move.  Some nursing covers have flimsy necklines which don’t allow mom to easily guide baby to the breast or maintain eye contact.  When you have a great nursing cover, such as the one that comes in the Peek Away Nursing Kit, you can spend more time comfortably and confidently nursing your baby.  There’s even a large, super soft pocket found on the inside of the cover that doubles as a burp cloth.

The comfort and ease of the Peek Away Nursing Kit is amazing.  Having the detachable shoulder strap double as a waist strap allows me to keep the nursing pillow in place – perfect for my squirmy nurser.  It’s the right size and allows me to feed Olive comfortably wherever I am without the need of other bulky pillows or blankets.  It’s also the perfect height too so I don’t have bend over and strain to nurse her.

Nuby One-Touch Electric Warmer and Sterilizer Review!

The ability to warm food and milk but also sterilize have been effectively married together with the Nuby One-Touch Electric Warmer and Sterilizer.

Instead of needing two different appliances, Nuby has created the One-Touch Electric Warmer and Sterilizer to save you time and space on your counter.  You can quickly and effectively warm baby food, breast milk and formula.  Besides warming, you can also quickly sterilize bottles and pacifiers in just minutes!  How awesome is that?!

I just adore this little appliance.  It’s so compact but does so much.  I love the fact that I can warm frozen, refrigerated, or room temperature milk and food.  Nuby includes an easy to read and understand Food and Bottle Warming Chart.  I keep mine right on my fridge for easy reference.

All you need to do is measure out how much water you need by using the measuring cup that attaches and detaches to the back of the warmer, place your item in the basket, and touch the button to start!  It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

The Nuby One-Touch Electric Warmer and Sterilizer is available at this retailer:

Alphabet Soup Busy Beads Nursing Necklace Review!

I adore my Alphabet Soup Busy Beads Nursing Necklace.  This Canadian company specializes in handmade, personalized pacifier clips and nursing necklaces.  From the crocheted embellishments to the natural wooden beads, these necklaces are not only stylish for mom, but a happy distraction for a nursing baby!

While nursing, your little one can explore the textures and focus on the task at hand – eating!  I know, at 13 months, Olive is definitely easily distracted.  If I don’t have this necklace on, she’s pulling at my shirt or pinching my boob (nursing moms, you know what I mean).  I would much rather have this stylish necklace on to help keep her attention – plus it looks great even when she’s not nursing!

As a breastfeeding mom, we all know the importance of nursing in order to keep up our milk supply.  While wearing my Busy Beads Nursing Necklace from Alphabet Soup, Olive is nursing longer and is less distracted by the world around her.  This allows me to relax and know that she’s filling her belly, a real win win for all of us!

Alphabet Soup ensures that all of the materials and construction used to create their products are safe, non-toxic, lead and nickle free.
