Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies

In recent studies the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) significantly increased the recommended daily fiber intake standards, and recommend 25 grams of fiber per day for four-year-old children. Wow, that’s a lot of fiber to get into one child!

Little Miss A will eat whole wheat bread, the occasional broccoli, raw spinach leaves,(I know she likes it and I can’t believe it) and of course her favorite fruits, but still, trying to make sure she gets all the fiber she needs does worry me.

We had the opportunity to try out Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. They’re made by Fleet and for any of you that know the name know they’re pretty synonymous with being a good bowel cleaner (to put it nicely.)

Being a mom I want to make sure my children get their fiber not only to be healthy but also because I know that personally it helps them to be able to go #2 a lot easier. I’m sure most parents don’t want their children struggling at potty time either. Read More

Softlips Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Softlips Review and GiveawayI noticed with all of the snow and colder weather we’ve been having here in Charlotte that my lips have been extremely chapped and dehydrated. DaddyB is one of those men who have several tubes of Chap-Stick around the house and while I’ve been tempted to just put some on I remember the smell, waxiness, and even aftertaste I get from it and vow to drink more water.

Fortunately, Softlips® has just the right stuff. The newest Softlips® PURE flavors, which are 100%-natural and USDA-certified organic, are formulated with the same quality moisturizing ingredients as the original organic flavor –Pomegranate– to condition the lips, helping to keep them soft and healthy naturally. Softlips® PURE, the line of premium organic lip conditioners, are now available in new Peppermint, Acai Berry, Papaya and Chai Tea. Read More

Custom Made for Kids Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Custom Made for Kids Review and GiveawayI’ve tested out a few different personalized book companies and have enjoyed each of them, however I truly feel that Custom Made for Kids is a different company with a more personal keepsake slant.

I had the opportunity to review The First Adventures of Incredible You. Not only is this 32-page, hard covered book full of bright and fun illustrations, the message given to each child is one of inspiration.

Custom Made for Kids book allows children to have fun hearing the city and state they live in, read family members names and listen to a fun adventure featuring the best character of all, them! Read More

Grow Green Baby Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Grow Green Baby Review and GiveawayI cannot say that I am a “Green” mommy or that I do all the right things when it comes to being eco-friendly. However, I do try to take steps in the “Green” direction like recycling and checking out great sites for eco-friendly products like Grow Green Baby.

Grow Green Baby is a great website for organic baby products and a few fun mom products as well. They have everything to cover your baby necessities from 100% organic clothing to baby safe Green to Grow bottles and bubbly body wash to keep your baby fresh and clean.

While the name isn’t very flattering, I love so many things about this bag. Before my Chelsea & Main bag I had been using a Nine West bag-turned diaper bag, so the bag wasn’t really made for diapering or mommying but looked cute. Well, my Chelsea & Main bag has both. I love the cute flower print, since I’m having another girl I figured it was appropriate. Read More

Carry-Her® Spotlight and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Carry-Her Review and GiveawayIntroducting Carry-Her Incorporated

Founder and inventor of the Carry-Her doll carrier, backpack, Roberta Wagner is first a mom. While she grew tired of lugging around her little girls doll, she was inspired to create the solution. Ro was very happy to allow her daughter to bring her doll on excursions. She was not so happy when shortly into the trip, the doll was under her own arm, not her daughters. Ro realized she was not alone. Several trips to NYC, and numerous tea party’s made it more evident. Moms everywhere were left toting dolls. Some moms had a doll under each arm, others even more. Something needed to be done. There had to be an easy way for young girls to carry their own doll. Read More

Lock & Mane Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Lock & Mane Review and GiveawayI first heard about Lock & Mane on Twitter and was overwhelmed, (in a good way), at the number of hair care products that they carry. It could be that I’m so out of the loop being a busy mommy, but they have a ton of products I’ve never even heard of. Another thing that amazed me is they have a product for everything from dandruff to dry shampoo to men’s shaving products and more! Read More

Holey Donuts Giveaway {CLOSED}

Holey Donuts Logo GiveawayUnfortunately, I have not had the chance to sample the delicious sounding treats from Holey Donuts.  However when I was on the Weight Watchers weight loss plan I did hear great raves and reviews about Holey Donuts.

I know the words low-fat and donut don’t normally go together, but Holey Donuts has a large variety of mouth-watering flavors with as little as 3 grams of fat and 150 calories per donut. Isn’t that amazing?? Holey Donuts offer assortments or you can select boxes of your favorite flavor.

Expressiva Spotlight Giveaway LogoExpressiva Nursing Wear is great for moms who want to nurse their child discretely and look good in the process. From tops and bottoms, to night wear, and accessories. Expressiva has your nursing needs covered, literally. One of the reasons I love Expressiva is that their prices are pretty reasonable in regards to nursing wear. They have a great selection and many different colors to choose from as well.

Expressiva Spotlight and Giveaway TopExpressiva invites their customers to use their rating system, which I found extremely helpful in deciding which size shirt to buy. The Pleated Scoop Neck that I got as a generous fit and has some great reviews from moms who’ve already worn it and tried it out. I love that!

MommyB Treats

MommyB TreatsSo yep, you heard it right, I’m gearing my site up for a few new, fun “treats”. Are you sitting down?? Okay, let’s begin!

One of my yummy vittles of blogginess, if you will, will include fun giveaways! I don’t know if I’m more excited than you, but hopefully you’ll be jumping for joy when you see these great contests. I figure, “why should I be the only one having fun with all of these great samples to try out and review?!?” So, in the “Spirit of Christmas,” (and spirit of giving in general, because believe me, if I have it my way these giveaways will be a year round addition to my blog…) let the giveaways begin.

Giveaway

Check back often for some great DVDs, learning products, and more!! Oh and I know sometimes it’s hard to let others know, but don’t forget to tell your friends all about the giveaways too, it’s nice to share and remember, Santa knows when you’ve been good AND bad, so be good for goodness sake!

PSSSST, make sure you grab my bloggy button (if you don’t already have it,) for the contests and of course because it’s ever so cute anyway!

Also on the tasty train are a bunch of spotlights featuring some fun businesses. What’s the difference between a review and a spotlight you ask? (Okay well maybe you didn’t ask but, I’d like to clarify for future reference.) A review is my opinion of a product or service, after doing some thoughtful research and testing products out, sometimes with a little help from my amazing, wonderful amazingly, wonderful family. These opinions are based on how I thought the product or service performed and, wanting to give my readers a true idea of the product rather than writing what a company would like me to write. So, in short, when reading my reviews please know that you may see some comments that are not “touting” the item if I don’t feel it’s “tout worthy.” You get the real deal.  Now to the spotlight part. While I love doing reviews sometimes there isn’t enough to write about a product, or I think that the background behind the product is very worthy of it’s own post. Thus, born my product and services spotlights. Basically, “just the facts ma’am.” So there you have it in a very, very large nutshell, maybe even a giant clam shell, which can grow up to 4 feet long, (put that in your memory banks!)

Your Ad HereMy last tidbit for those businesses out there is that I am now offering premium ad space on my blog. If you peek over to my right sidebar you’ll see a section designed to showcase your business for MommyB Knows Best readers. If you’re interested in finding out more about this desirable ad space please click here: PR Welcome or select my PR Welcome tab.

I’d love to hear any other ideas you may have for my blog, as the new year is upon us I love to enhance MommyB Knows Best as much as I can.
