First,she sent me a purple korker bow,its the first korker bailey ever recieved and i love it .its very sturdy& even with bailey pulling it throwing it & chewing it it stays in good condition and still bounces back :]
Next, she sent a crocheted light pink flower, i LOVE crochet so i of COURSE love it.It's so cute, of course bailey pulls it out of her hair to chew on it but its still cute when i can get her to leave it in her hair, and its so cute , i even wear it :)
finally she sent a hot pink flower clippie that i can clip onto a white headband and make any outfit cute. the bows are very well made & well worth the price..
if you'd like to see her bows check her out on FB
she also has a refferal contest going on,check it out!

I Recieved from her two bows, and a red/white sparkle tutu.
First, the tu-tu is so cute and it's an adjustable tu-tu that i can tie to fit her as she grows ( and yes, it fits me..so she'll be in it for awhile). The one downside to it is the glitter comes off no matter how much you shake it before you put it on , but thats okay bailey didnt mind being sparkly.Bailey loves the tutu and loved crawling around in it.
The bows are also VERY VERY CUTE , unfortunately bailey has reached the phase of life where she pulls the bows right out of her hair,but she'll get over that :] The bow's were made beautifully and high quality.
I will post some pictures later on as my camera is out of use right now.In the meantime visit her etsy shop or her facebook and place an order.

giveaway will end on august 10th at 12noon EST.
I waited anxiously to recieve the items in the mail and sure enough, friday they arrived.
First I will review the woombie.
The woombie is like a sleeper sack but it has no arms, so baby feels like he/she is in the womb again. Brennan is so calm when he is placed in his woombie- You can have one arm free, both arms free, or both wrapped. It's also a double zippered sack so he/she can have their arms wrapped but legs free for stroller ,swing,or easy diaper changing.This is the best thing i've gotten in along time in reguards to a sleeper because he can eat, lay down, and he'll stay asleep for about 6 hours through the night wearing it! I love it 100%
This is what the woombie website says about the woombie "
Swaddle your baby Safely and Effectively with The Woombie ... designed to ease your mind and comfort your baby so you may both achieve a better nights sleep. The Woombie is the safest & most NATURAL way to Swaddle your baby, encouraging baby to softly stretch extremities as needed, just like in the womb. The Woombie comforts, softly confines arms & gently compresses baby's unique curves to hug baby... preventing Startling issues, face scratching, overheating and also preventing dangerous loose unraveled blankets from covering baby's face.
The Woombie is a proud winner of the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved), Moms Best and Creative Child Awards. We have been seen on television, in numerous popular baby magazines and are endorsed by Doctors, Doulas, Postpartom Baby Instructors, Nurses and countless moms and dads worldwide. In a nutshell, The Woombie is a great easy swaddle for babies with the Startle Reflex & who are in need of a cozy yet gentle confinement."
I agree with the " startle reflux " statement..Brennan has the startle reflux still and he is easily shocked.this makes him feel more protected. He also has reflux and likes having his self in a ball which makes the woombie a perfect item for him.
A woombie looks like this -
- they also make woombie convertables,and woombie leggies.
An organic woombie Retails for $28.99 and they
are worth every penny.A regular woombie is $26.99 -
Now onto the MoMo- A momo is a little lovie blanket that is minky on one side and satin on the other.It measures 13x13" and has a little velcro tag to attach a pacifier to. I wanted to keep this til bailey's first birthday but she got sick and wanted to snuggle to something so i gave it to her. She fell in love, she grabbed it and held it right beside
her face and fell asleep. She loves to snuggle blankets, so any time she gets a blanket its a happy moment for bailey. She is constantly reaching for her momo and grabbing the loop to hold on to it with one hand. If you would like to purchase a mo'mo you can purchase it at Woombie.com for $15.00
Mo'Mo Blankie looks like this .

First, a tidbit of info from the Dr.Browns site to explain just how the vent system they've created works
"Our Dr. Brown’s bottle features a patented two-piece internal vent system that works unlike any other bottle design. The vent system fully vents our bottle for vacuum-free feeding, which we call positive-pressure flow, similar to breastfeeding. As the baby feeds, air is channeled from the nipple collar through the vent system, bypassing the breastmilk or formula, to the back of the bottle. Air never mixes with the breastmilk or formula which minimizes oxidation and helps maintain essential nutrients like vitamins C, A and E.
Babies feed more comfortably because the vent system allows them to nurse without fighting the negative effects of a vacuum or the discomfort of ingesting air bubbles. This helps to reduce feeding problems like colic, spit-up, burping, and gas. The breastmilk or formula flows freely, without nipple collapse. "
No better way to explain it than through the words of Dr.Brown's -
Now, I was not a huge fan when i first saw them because really, who wants to /who has the time to take a part a bottle, clean it out, and then put it back together to feed a baby? Well, Little did i know ,they send you little vent brushes so its alot faster and easier for you to clean... it takes me a total of 3 minutes to scrub the whole set of bottles and get them ready to wash-
When i first pulled out a Dr.Browns bottle Bailey was more interested in the blue thing inside the bottle( the vent ) than actually drinking it...but she quickly learned that it was for eating as well as playing ( who says you can't play with a baby bottle..lol)
She can drink while moving around ( she never sits down lol!) but doesn't get all those icky air bubbles in her belly.Trust me, with bailey..thats a good thing.If you all remember- She has a gallstone, as well as sludge in her gall bladder ,and she had Necrotizing enterocolitis in her tummy when she was a week old, which made her tummy veryy sensitive* she was on 58$ formula for the LONGEST time* so anything i can do to prevent a stomach ache, i will do.
My favorite thing about these bottles is THEY DONT LEAK! I have seen numerous bottles with vents that will leak, these don't!! They are really awesome..
I recommend these for ANY moms, but most importantly moms to preemies as well as moms to babys with stomach issues(such as reflux,which bailey and brennan both have!)
Dr. Brown's is willing to give one lucky reader on my blog a bottle set as well..

For Brennan i recieved a little lovie-that looks like this-
She also sent bailey a lovey with a girly'peace'fabric( no pics,sorry! )
and she sent bailey this gorgeous dora dress ( without the straps!)
I was VERY pleased with the quality of her products! they are soo cute and i think her prices are very reasonable!!In fact, if i was her i would probably charge a bit more!!
The dress is still a bit big on bailey(shes a short stuff!) but she'll grown into it! Bailey loves both of the lovies(yep,she stole her brothers!) and i love all three of the items! If you are ever in the mood to buy a blanket,hair bows,flowers, etc- check out mama*D* on facebook -
