Beech-Nut has a whole new look since I used their baby foods with my oldest daughter a few years back. It is a trusted brand using wholesome ingredients perfect for babies and toddlers. I now have a 5 month old daughter that is just starting to eat solid foods and our friends at Beech-Nut were nice enough to give me a coupon to try a jar of Beech-Nut organic baby food.

The Beech-Nut organic line is available at many stores including Babies R Us, Kroger and Wegmans retailers. I went to my local Babies R Us and I was able to easily find the Beech-Nut baby food section. You can find Beech-Nut baby food nearest you with the easy-to-use Retail Store Locator.

Beech-Nut organic is sold at the following retail stores:

Kroger, Babies “R” Us, Wegmans, Price Chopper, Wakefern, Walmart.com,  Winn-Dixie, BI-LO, Stop & Shop, Giant Carlisle, A&P, Pathmark, Albertsons, Hannaford, Raley’s, Meijer, Nugget Market, Diapers.com, Harris Teeter, Shaw’s, ACME, Shoppers Food and Cub Foods.

I chose Stage 1: “Just Apples” which is a delicious introduction to single-ingredient solid food. Stage 1 is suitable for babies 4 months and older. The ingredients are simple: organic apples. That’s it! No other artificial ingredients, preservatives or additives. Just apples.

I have to admit, I’m not Super Mom. I do not have the time to make my own baby food at home so I need help. I trust Beech-Nut since their Organic baby food line is as close to what I would make if I did have the time to make my own baby food for my daughter. Plus, the organic line features USDA-certified organic seal, an indication of GMO-free food.

My daughter has been eating rice cereals for the past few weeks and I wanted to give her a special treat of the Beech-Nut baby food. I picked Beech-Nut organic Just Apples and she loved it! I know I need to introduce veggies first but I couldn’t resist seeing her little face after trying it. It was a great experience to see her enjoy it and my oldest daughter even helped feed her, too. The texture was like applesauce and I even tried a little bit to see what it tasted like. It tasted like apples picked from an apple farm.

Written by 5 year old Alexander Luke and presented by his grandmother, award-winning children’s author Carole P.

As soon as I opened the package for this review, my daughter was asking if I could read the children’s book to her because she loves anything and everything about animals. We sat down on the couch and we started to read the story. She thought the illustrations were funny and I explained to her that a boy a little older than you wrote and made the pictures in the story. She was amazed and now she wants to make her own book too! This is a nice story describing different whales around the world. My daughter’s favorite was the beluga whales since the illustration made her laugh as well as the name of the whale.

I look forward to reviewing more stories by Alexander Luke and Carole P. Roman. This children’s book will be read many times to my daughter and hopefully to our future children, too.

If you would like to win your own Whaley’s Big Adventure children’s book – we’re having a giveaway! Enter below for your chance to win a copy of this great story. GOOD LUCK!

I have been using PURE Glass Bottle the past few days as part of my New Year’s resolution. My resolution was to drink more water through out the day and boy have I been buying a lot of bottled water since January. BUT – I am so thankful for this review for PURE where I was given an Explorer style (25 oz) reusable glass bottle that I can take anywhere.Screen Shot 2014-03-06 at 4.38.06 PM

The PURE glass bottle is very difficult to break because of the exterior clear safety coating where the coating strengthens the bottle. The bottle itself is very heavy duty and with the clear coating, it keeps all the glass and liquid adhered inside the bottle if the bottle does break. Glass makes your drink taste better and keeps your beverage colder longer. Perfect for in the car, going to the gym or at home working in my office since there is no mess of sharp glass shards and liquid to clean up if it did break. I have a 3 year old at home and cannot count how many times she has dropped a glass of juice or milk on the floor!

PURE Safe-Shell Glass Bottle is the only clear coated reusable glass bottle on the market with a permanent coating. Other glass bottles have coverings and sleeves that need to be removed. Some other glass bottles have 4 and 5 parts to clean and assemble; parts that can be lost or misplaced. The PURE Explorer only has 2 parts; the bottle and the cap.

Screen Shot 2014-03-06 at 4.37.24 PM

I love the fact that it is convenient at home where I can fill up the glass bottle with filtered water and go about my day. My favorite parts are spending less money on plastic water bottles as well as helping the environment. In a normal day, I can drink quite a few bottles of water and this doesn’t even include my husband and daughter. With the PURE reusable glass bottle, I can fill the bottle up and not worry about recycling the plastic bottles or running out to the store to buy more since we ran out. The image below is from PURE’s website where it compares glass vs. plastic and it amazes me how much we help by drinking from a reusable bottle.

With a one year old at home with me all day, I rarely have a chance to take a bubble bath let alone a shower to wash my hair.  I had the opportunity to review QwikShower Wipes and they were a lifesaver!

 

{About Qwik Shower Wipes}  QwikShower is a small family owned business in Olney, Maryland that specializes in wipes to “freshen up anywhere, anytime”.  The wipes measure 10″x12″ and are conveniently single wipe packaged to carry in your purse, gym bag, locker, back pack or car.  The wipes are moistened, single use, thick disposable towels when you do not have the time or location to take a shower.

The idea started in a local high school where kids could not shower after gym class or sports practices.  What a great alternative that can be quickly opened and used. And what even better is QwikShower can help with fundraisers for any organization.

 

{Product Review}  I have to admit that I wish I had more time to take care of myself since having my baby but all moms make scarifies to make sure their little ones are taken care of. I tried QwikShower wipes the other day when I had to take my daughter to her doctors appointment and did not have time to jump in the shower.  The packaging was easy to open the disposable towel was a lot softer than the baby wipes I normally use to freshen up.  The towel was a nice size and the whole process took only a few minutes.  I air dried quickly and I was then ready to get dress. Overall, I would recommend QwikShower wipes to my family and friends.

 

{Giveaway Details}  Our friends at QwikShower wipes have offered a full size 6-pack of QwikShower wipes to one of my luck readers.  So enter below using Rafflecopter and Good Luck!
