MAM anti-colic bottle review

With every new baby, or grand baby comes a whole new line of products. Thanks to science and researchers, we are learning new ways to keep our babies happy, and healthy. A couple of months ago we met our newest grand baby, Louise. Like a lot of new born babies, her digestive system is not yet her friend. There have been a lot of problems with gas, spitting up and unpleasant crying. This sure can make even the best of parents feel helpless. One thing that has helped through this difficult time is using the correct bottle. MAM sent us the below Anti-colic bottles to review with little Louise.

MAM_bottles_002

Unlike the expensive bottles my daughter registered for, MAM anti-colic bottle are vented at the base to ensures babies can drink quietly and relaxed. Ventilation holes regulate the pressure balance. The milk can flow evenly – without bubbles, without foaming. Simply relaxed. This is proven to equal 80% less colic in babies!

MAM_bottles_001

The measurement marks on the bottle are nice and clear for keeping rack of how fast baby is eating. The MAM Ultra Soft Silicone Nipple makes switching between breastfeeding and bottle especially easy – Thanks to its patented silky soft silicone surface. Proven to be 94% effective of babies acceptance.

MAM_bottles_003

MAM bottles are 100% BPA free and another awesome thing about them is that they’re built to sterilizes in only 3 minutes! Each bottle can be taken apart in 3 easy steps, sterilized in the microwave – quick and easy without a separate sterilizer. Also ideal for on the go, or visiting grandparents!

MAM_bottles_004

It didn’t take long for our daughter to return the unopened bottles she received at her shower, and replace them with MAM Anti-colic bottles. They are way easier on Louise’s digestive system, helping her relax and get the nutrition and rest she needs. We love these bottles!

MAM_bottles_005

Available in a single pack, double pack or triple pack?. We would highly recommend MAM Anti-colic bottles to any new parent or as a gift.

MAM started in 1976 – with the vision of high quality baby products that unify design, function and medical competence.

7 Things on Sunday, Pretty Lady Salon #Detroit

This week, instead of writing about myself, I decided to list seven things I love about Pretty Lady Salon.

3. Comfortable atmosphere. I am always greeted with a genuine smile. The staff is super friendly. Honestly, it just feels good to be there.

4. Pedicures! No explanation needed. Pedicures to me are like the most amazing gift to myself, and these ladies know how to rock a pedicure.

5. They give back! Whether it’s working with local woman’s shelter to give interview make overs, or collected canned goods. Pretty Lady Salon works hard to make a difference.

Starbucks Fall Blend Review #FallBlend @Starbucks #coffeeathome

When I think of fall, I think of leaves changing, pumpkin picking, crisp cool weather, enjoying warm fall comfort foods,and desserts, with a cup hot flavorful coffee. Oh, and lot’s of family evenings by our little back yard fire-pit. Those are the best!

fallmeanstome

I recently received the below gift package from Starbucks to review their new limited edition Fall Blend of coffee.

starbucks_fallblend_delivery635701089506_195201876_n

This blend is layered and full-bodied, a medium roast that creates a cup that’s hearty and refined. Made of fresh spice notes, coffees from Kenya to add citrusy brightness as well as beans from Peru that offer balance and a subtle nuttiness – it’s the perfect segue into the brisk days of fall

Bringing me right back to all of the things I love about fall. Starbucks Fall Blend pairs perfectly with hearty comfort foods and fall desserts of the season – like pumpkin pie or bread! Yum!

Starbucks Fall Blend is a great way to ease into the back-to-school morning routine. Enjoying a cup of Starbucks in the midst of getting kids out the door, and to school on-time is often the closest this mom get’s to any “me time” on a weekday. It’s also a great eye opener in the morning. Helping me wake up, and bring my all, which is a great thing, because some of those unplanned moments while getting ready for school have been my favorites. I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

Starbucks Fall Blend is one of our favorites. The aroma is heaven as it brews.
