Mealtime Made Fun With Disney

I officially have two solid food eaters in my house now! Bentley is ten months old and we are trying to wean him from his bottle. He is now only having 2-3 bottles a day, and eats all meals with us.

So you can imagine our excitement when we received some new mealtime items in the mail from Disney Baby. Our boys already love using them. Click here to find out more!

Our Magical New Lunchtime Item

As a stay-at-home mom, I always have lunch with my two sons. Most days we are home for lunch and they sure do know how to make a mess when they eat! Thankfully, though, we were recently given an item that helps us keep the mess down. Read on and find out what it is!

I am totally obsessed with these waterproof, sleeved bibs from Bumkins.

I wasn’t sure how my boys would react to wearing something on their arms during mealtime, but they weren’t bothered by the bibs at all! It helps that the material is actually very soft and that it has pictures of KJ’s favorite characters on them.

We love the Monsters, Inc. decor from Disney Baby. The boys’ nursery is decorated with turquoise and bright green and gray so anything Monsters, Inc. usually matches the theme we have for the boys already.

When lunch was over, I removed the bibs and Voila!, no mess and totally clean shirts! KJ actually liked the bib so much he asked to wear it again at dinner. That has NEVER happened before.

I pack them into our diaper bag and take them with us to restaurants and parents always ask us where we got them from and compliment us on how clean our kids have stayed!

If I were you, I would definitely order a few of these for your little ones.

You can find an assortment of bibs, in different Disney Baby themes at target.com. Just click here!

Our New Favorite Laundry Detergent

I’m one of those moms who loves the smell of fruity laundry detergent and fabric softener, but I know that my babies’ skin is easily irritated by the harsh chemicals in those types of detergents.

I’m used to the baby-safe detergents having a bland smell but I finally found one that is gentle for my little ones’ skin but also smells great!

What I Miss Most About Having A Newborn

How is it possible that my youngest baby, Bentley, is going to be a one-year-old on March 1st?! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how quickly time flies by and how much I miss him being a teenie-tiny baby who slept most of the hours of the day, yet somehow barely slept at night.

Having a newborn can be a bit stressful because it definitely throws off your sleep schedule, but I really do miss those days when Bentley was brand new to the world, needing my help every hour of the day and night. There really is nothing like the bond between a newborn and his momma.

Here a few of the things I miss most about having a newborn in our house:
