Baby Essentials: Pacidose Baby & Infant Medicine Dispenser

If your babies are anything like mine, it's nearly impossible to easily and accurately give them children  any type of liquid medication, it's always a struggle. Luckily, Pacidose is here to help!

Created by Dr. Agnes Scoville a mom, a veteran and an ER doctor, Pacidose is a pacifier medication dispenser that features a hospital-grade oral syringe for perfect measurement, and a tiny tube down the middle that prevents liquid from being wasted in the nipple.

Multiple studies confirm that babies are frequently given the wrong dose of medicine, due to rejection and inaccurate measurement. Pacidose solves the problem.

Available in 0-6, 6-18 and 18+ months. Pacidose is easy to use.  Simply fill the syringe with the correct amount of medicine, attach the Pacidose nipple to the syringe and after your child begins to suck, gently assist with plunger. Done! How easy is that? No more wasted medicine, no more inaccurate dosing.

Mealtime Made Easy - Boon Products + a delicious recipe

If you follow me on Instagram (what? you don't? follow me here) you probably know that back in December I started 21 DayFix. This transition to a healthier lifestyle is one our entire family has made. One of my favorite dishes to cook for my boys is whole wheat pasta with turkey meat sauce. It's a simple but super delicious meal to make and the best part? It take no time to make. Below is my super quick recipe.

Brown 1-1/2lbs of turkey meat with a little bit of minced garlic and drain.
Add 1 jar of your favorite store bought pasta sauce
Add parmesan cheese to taste
Let it simmer for 20 mins
Cook whole wheat pasta and voila! 

My boys absolute love it and always ask for seconds! When my husband makes this dish on weekends, he makes his sauce from scratch. Since I'm super busy during the week, I always use store bought pasta sauce and add mince garlic and parmesan cheese to up the flavor. I make enough sauce to freeze, it's my go to dish for busy nights.

With the help of Boon innovative products, mealtime is always a success. Have you guys heard of their new dishwasher net? SPAN is a stretchy silicone net that hooks to your dishwasher rack and keeps everything thing locked down. No more cups and bowls flipping over and filling with nasty water - yuck!

Another Boon product that I'm absolutely loving right now is the new FORB MINI. Perfect for toddler dishes (and nonstick cookware) this petite brush is made from  super durable silicone brushes that leave your dishes clean without any scratches,
