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.

Just in-time for fall, Febreze Home Harvest Collection Review @Walmart @SheSpeaksUp #FebrezeFall

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Walmart, SheSpeaks and Febreze. All opinions expressed and photos used are 100% honest and my own.

Fall is by far my favorite season. Here in Michigan fall brings crisp, cooler temps, and a lot of beautiful color change. Each year I look forward to celebrating the delicious rich flavors and scents associated with fall, like pumpkin, vanilla and spices – I just love them.

I recently received this scentspiration box filled with various fall activities, recipes, home décor ideas, and several products from the limited edition Febreze Home Harvest Collection.

febrezefall_products_barn1

Living in a house with kids, and several pets, I have been a regular user of Febreze products for quit some time. I love the way it works. Febreze doesn’t cover up odors, it actually eliminates them and replaces them with some of my favorite scents. Like Toasted Almonds, Vanilla Latte, and Autumn Harvest.

febrezefall_products1

The Febreze NOTICEable Dual Scented Oil Warmer does a great job at eliminating pet odor. We have one plugged in near our dog’s bed, and another in the room where the cat box located. Febreze makes all the diffidence! The warmers work for such a long time, that I often forget to replace them. Until, I walk into a room and smell the unwanted odor. So, I tend to keep one or two refills on hand. I can’t wait to stock up with these limited edition fall scents.

New to me is the Febreze Car Vent Clip that was included in this box. It attached easily and acted instantly on hard to rid of pet odor in my car. Replaced it with the nice fall aroma of Toasted Almonds. I love it! Moving forward, I honestly do not see myself going without one.

febreze_carplug

I can’t wait to really dig into this fall inspirational box! It’s packed with fall recipes (Hello- Oven S’mores), fall activities for the whole family, and even crafty home décor ideas. Each a great way to celebrate my love for the season.
