Product Love: 2 in 1 Mattress protector and sheet + a giveaway

You know when you discover a new product and wonder: where have you been all my life?! I had that thought when I was introduced to HighFive Easy's Cotton Crib Mattress Protector. You might be thinking, what's so special about a mattress protector well... this one is a crib mattress protector AND a fitted sheet all in one. Yep!

HighFive Easy's mattress protector is made of 100% cotton and a waterproof TPU layer. The cotton provides a breathable, comfortable and soft top layer while the waterproof layer protects the mattress from leakage, stains and bacteria.

Combining both design and function, this mattress cover doubles a fitted sheet. No need to purchase sheets and protectors separately any more! How genius is that? If you're like me, you love products that are effective and simplify your life -- and these is one of those products. Featuring strong elastic edges, this mattress protector saves you time and money, no more need to change and wash two separate items.

  • 100% cotton, TPU layer 
  • Dry mattress - waterproof crib mattress cover protects from diaper leakage, liquids and stains 
  • Safety and comfort for your child - prevents bacteria, dust mites and mold
  • High quality material - no ripping 
  • Fitted sheet - fits standard cribs
  • Modern design -  replaces the need to purchase a separate fitted sheet
This product is a must have for any new moms -- it's the perfect baby shower gift -- and "experienced" moms alike. It's definitely a time saver.

Reading Corner: Valentine's Day books for kids

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than reading with my kids? 

This year I'm filling up this love canvas tote bag with lots of books by Macmillan. I'm also adding some chocolate for Jack and vanilla cupcake Goldfish for the littlest ones -- because everyone deserves something sweet on Valentine's Day!

An epic, if initially unrequited, love affair between a graceful gazelle and a clumsy, hapless ox. Romance will never be the same. Adam Rex's hilarious, sweet, and at times heartbreaking letters between a hopelessly romantic ox and a conceited, beautiful gazelle are paired perfectly with Scott Campbell's joyful illustrations to bring you a romance for the ages.

We humans smooch with our lips. But how do giraffes, whales, hummingbirds, tree frogs, and other creatures kiss? It's fun to wonder about and to see in the pages of this charming book, which includes facts about each animal at the end. Perfect for Valentine's Day and all year round.

Cute and cuddly animals wear their hearts on their sleeves in this charming board book with Valentine's Day rhymes. There are tactile, heart-shaped holes on every page, while glitter and foil add a sprinkle of Valentine's Day magic to this endearing book for the little one you love.

A fresh, funny take on sibling rivalry and conflict resolution, as two sparring siblings are forced to "hug it out."Adults will delight in a new solution to conflict, while kids will enjoy yelling "HUG IT OUT!" at each familiar situation. With humor and smart, eye-catching illustrations, Louis Thomas's debut is a cheeky tribute to sibling rivalry and (cuddly) compromise
Horace and Hattie are hedgehogs, and the very best of friends. Together, they make daisy chains, splash in puddles, and have tea parties. But there is one thing they can't do―hug! They are just too spiky. Throughout the seasons, these two hedgehogs will try many different ways of hugging. But will Horace and Hattie find a hug that feels just right?

Product Love: Boon's PULP Silicone Feeder

I've stayed away from mesh feeders for so long because they can be so messy. In theory, they are great but in reality? The mess is not worth it to me. I recently had the chance to try out Boon's PULP silicone feeder and was surprised at how mess free and easy to clean it is.

I made a delicious homemade applesauce and simply placed it inside the silicone feeder. It was not only ideal during meal time, it was perfect for my teething child. And with the holiday season upon is, this Target exclusive item is THE perfect stocking stuffer. There's still time to order and receive before Christmas!

  • Soft - silicone cover allows baby to self - feed on fruits and vegetables through small holes
  • Can be used with chilled food for teething babies 
  • Interior stem forces food towards feeder holes
  • Quick snap ring allows for easy assembly 
  • Small handle is perfect for baby's grasp & easily attaches to a tether 
  • Silicone easily rinses clean

Disclosure: This post is written in collaboration with Boon, Inc who provided samples of this product. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
