How Safe is Your Nursery?

Wednesday, May 20, 2015


We like to think that our homes and the perfect Pinterest worthy nursery that we dream up for baby is the safest place for them, but just how safe is it really? How safe are the products we use daily with our infants? 

Sometimes as a parent, especially a first time parent, we can be naive to obvious ways of injury. For instance, doesn't it just seem okay to sometimes place the carrier on top of the shopping cart even though it doesn't securely latch in there? Sure it does seem like it is okay to do for quick trips - that is until you read all of the articles against doing that. While we can try and be supermoms all we want, sometimes we just don't know any better or "think" about just how dangerous a simple action or product can be.

With the correct tools and the correct knowledge of how to use and handle products, we can better protect our infants and children from injury or worse. In the attached link you'll find an AMAZING webpage that lays it all out there for you and shows you all of the statistics you need to know and think about for safety.

It'll only take a minute of your time to scroll through this easy to read and catchy web page, and I promise that it is worth your minute! Find it here and see some clips below. Learn about the potential risks around you and be more knowledgeable about how to use common baby products safely and correctly.




Natural Babies Giveaway Event: Hazelaid

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Natural Babies Giveaway Event

The Pistachio Project, My Mama Adventure, The Mushy Mommy, and A Fulfilled Mommy are teaming up for a spectacular, month long Natural Babies Giveaway Event!

Back in the day, most parents went with either tylenol or orajel or a mixture of both if they had a teething baby. Both of those work in their own rights but both come with their own risks. Many parents prefer to go with natural products for their babies and neither of the classic teething solutions are very natural.

There's a new teething solution on the block! Well I really shouldn't call it new... it's actually been around for a long long time; it's just finally getting popular! What is this new teething pain reliever?

Baltic Amber Necklaces!

Natural Babies Giveaway: Hazelaid

Yes, I know it seems super "hippie". If you had asked me just 5 years ago if I thought a necklace could solve teething pain, I would have laughed in your face. How in the world could wearing a necklace help with pain?! To learn all about amber necklaces, you'll want to check out my review of Hazelaid!

Natural Babies Giveaway: Hazelaid

There are many brands that sell amber necklaces but Hazelaid is by far my favorite company to buy from. Hazelaid is one of a few that sell baltic amber necklaces and it is baltic amber that has one of the highest concentrations of succinic acid. Lithuanian’s makes each piece so you know it’s the real deal. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of many other companies out there. Each necklace or bracelet from Hazelaid is knotted in between each bead; this ensures that if some how your necklace or bracelet were to break, you would only lose one stone and not the whole string. Hazelaid not only offers baltic amber necklaces and bracelets (for children as well as adults) but they also offer hazelwood jewelry, which is great for eczema and acid reflux. This family owned company also offers hazel-amber jewelry, which is a combination of both hazelwood and amber, and quite a few other products as well. 

If you are looking for a natural remedy for teething, Hazelaid is the answer! Even if you don’t have a teething baby, odds are that you could find a way to use Hazelaid as it seems everyone knows someone who has pain issues, reflux, or eczema.

Buy It: 
You can find Hazelaid’s bracelets, necklaces and more on their site.  Children’s Baltic amber necklaces range from $20.95 - $25.95. Hazelaid has provided a discount code for my readers.
If you enter code: Pistachio10 you will receive 10% off your order!

Win It: 
Hazelaid has graciously offered to allow one of you the chance to win a $25 gift code to their store!

When Motherhood Interrupts Your Bubble Bath

Friday, May 15, 2015


Do you remember the days of being a newlywed or just a single adult who came home from work and enjoyed a nice, luxurious bubble bath with a glass of wine? You sat there in the silence, perhaps with candles and took in the relaxation. The only things you really had to worry about were some work issues and personal finances. But you sat there in silence alone, or even with your significant other, and enjoyed the moment. 
Last night I came across an Instagram picture that seemed like it was just that. I went to bed doing all of the comparisons in my mind of my nights compared to that. I can't tell you the last time I had a night like that. Let's face it...motherhood changes that crap for reals. 
Let's just be frank here. My bathtub is full of rubber ducks and Elmo bath books; candles are nonexistent because of little hands and wine is irrelevant to me because I'm either always knocked up or breastfeeding (both by choice). Ah, wine
An attempt at a bubble bath results in either A) waiting for the kids to go to bed, but later results in me being too tired to indulge in the moment or B) leaving the kid(s) with daddy only to have them banging on the door. "Mama. Mama. Mammmmaaaaa." You try to ignore it but then the little fingers start sliding under the door. The tantrums start and no matter what daddy may try, they just want you. It's like they find you no matter where you are. Apparently they have a good nose like a dog...they find your trail EVERY.DAMN. TIME. 
Even if we try to ignore the little bubble bath busters, our hearts just can't do it. We are a mother and eventually we pull the plug and let the bubbles out and pour the wine down the drain as well. Sigh.
But let's be even more honest here. Chances are that you didn't even attempt that luxurious bubble bath. More than likely, you put the kids to bed and attempted to finish tending to the house. You have to pick up the toys (the same ones you picked up three times that day), finish cleaning the kitchen from dinner's mess (after you cleaned it already from the other umpteen meals), you finally take the clothes out of the washer (that have likely been sitting there for three hours waiting to be put to dry) and you attempt to have a real adult conversation with your husband (who may sitting there enjoying some TV...nice, right?). And finally, after all is said and done, you hope to catch up on two weeks worth of TV shows followed by a quick shower with NO hair washing involved and a yet again late night to bed. That's real life for you. That's motherhood. 
But the reality of it all is that you wouldn't change it for the world. Sure you miss the alone nights, but even when you get them you can't help but think of and miss the little leeches that always find you. They are a part of you that you miss when they are not there. 
And what is even more real about this, is that a silly Instagram picture can never fully depict the life behind it. Perhaps the person is longing for motherhood and wishes their bath tub was full of rubber ducks or perhaps the person isn't living it up like you imagine. While we exhausted mothers are tired at the end of the day, there are many, many women longing to feel the exhaustion of motherhood. 
So yes, I would love to have a moment of silence and relaxation like that again. But I know the reality is that it is just not the right time; no matter how hard I try to make "me" time, me now really involves two other little human beings. Because they are a part of ME. They are my world and my heart and the bubbles of joy to my day. 
However, I'll take that glass of wine soon please.

Natural Babies Giveaway Event: Planet Wise

Natural Babies Giveaway Event

 The Pistachio Project, My Mama Adventure, The Mushy Mommy, and A Fulfilled Mommy are teaming up for a spectacular, month long Natural Babies Giveaway Event!

My Mama Adventure is thrilled to be participating in this giveaway event during the entire month of May! It's our way of celebrating the birth of our new little ones all month long. I'm excited to be partnering with Planet Wise for a hanging wet/dry bag, perfect for any cloth diapering family.

We have several Planet Wise wet bags and the hanging wet/dry bag. They are above and beyond our favorite bags for dirty cloth diaper storage. The small wet bags are perfect for the diaper bag and can easily fit 2-3 diapers in them.

 The Planet Wise hanging wet/dry bag can hang from door knobs, hooks, etc. for easy access to put dirty cloth diapers in until laundry day. The hanging wet/dry bag is so nice to be able to just pick it up and take it to the laundry room, dump diapers in the washer, throw in the wet bag, done! We've never had any leakage issues with any of our Planet Wise bags and they hold in dirty diaper stink pretty well since they are double layered with a PUL layer on the inside. They have held up to cloth diapering my son for 2+ years and I know we'll get through the next 2+ years with our next baby. We've loved Planet Wise so much that I learned my lesson with our diaper pail and switched over to the Planet Wise pail liners. Live and learn, right?

To buy your own Planet Wise hanging wet/dry bag, visit their website. They have tons of other eco-friendly products to purchase as well.
