Ziggy Baby Jersey Cotton Crib Sheets & Changing Table Cover Review

I’m going to apologize ahead of time for these photos. We just rearranged the girls’ room so that it would accommodate Bird’s changing table, crib and dresser… and that room doesn’t get a great deal of natural light… especially now with the gloomy weather we’ve been having! Now… onto our review!

Can I just say how much I love these sheets? They are so incredibly soft. They are made from 100% cotton jersey and are machine washable. These sheets are not only super cute (you get this chevron print and a polka dot print in the set) but I love that they stay cool enough in the winter to remain comfortable but aren’t super chilly in the winter like regular cotton sheets are. There’s no shock of cold for your baby when you lay them down! That’s a huge plus for me! We have a standard sized crib mattress and these sheets fit like a glove! Perfect!

Can you tell our crib has been used since Boogie was born? It’s a little beat up, ha! But those sheets are still cute! I also love that the grey/white colors are gender neutral. So not only do they match the butterfly/purple bedding that we have for Bird, but they’ll be great for Baby #4 someday as well!

Yes, this changing table has been through the ringer as well! But look! There’s the other print that comes in these sets! So with the crib sheets you get two sheets, one chevron and one polka dot. Same goes for the changing table covers! We have a contoured changing pad and the covers fit it perfectly! I imagine a regular after purchase pad would be great as well, but I think the thin pad that comes with most changing tables would be too small for these covers.

LOVE THIS PRINT. So yes! We are in love with these…. I may not even use the other sheets and covers we have now that we have these! You can purchase the crib sheet set HERE for $22.99 and the changing pad cover set HERE for $21.99.

Teething Necklace Review

Yes, yes… I know. I’ve reviewed many teething necklaces. Both amber and silicone necklaces to be exact. But I promise you… this is by far the BEST and my FAVORITE!

IMG_1083

Look at that color! I think it’s gorgeous and I love that it has a pearl like sheen to the beads. And the accent of the smaller round beads…. yep, I’m in LOVE with this necklace! This necklace actually comes with a matching bracelet, but I’m not a big bracelet wearer (is that even a word?!) so I’m thinking about taking it and the other bracelets that came with my other sets and using them on our baby carrier as a teething toy!

I love that teething necklaces are so versatile, I don’t feel weird wearing them out even if I don’t have sweet Baby Bird with me! This one especially, it’s a great jewelry piece! And I love that when Bird does use it to teeth on, I don’t have to worry about her putting it in her mouth. These are 100% food grade silicone jewelry, so they are BPA, latex and metal free. Best thing about these are that they are dishwasher safe! Easy peasy mommas! This necklace also has a breakaway clasp, so if your baby or toddler pulls too hard, it won’t hurt your neck, it’ll just pop right off! This particular necklace has a 16″ drop length and the bangle bracelet is a “one size fits all”…. it was a tight fit for me though!

Want to purchase your own? There’s a great coral color available on Amazon right now and it’s on sale for $12.99! Run!

Muslin Swaddle Blankets 3 Pack Review

                                                                                    STOCK PHOTO

We are big fans of muslin blankets, our kids seem to gravitate to those blankets over any others in our home. We’ve tried different brands and we always compare them to the Aden & Anais brand… and I can tell you with full confidence that this set is FANTASTIC. I washed them three times prior to use, I wanted them nice and soft and fluffy for Baby Bird!

I love the soft grey and white patterns on this set, it’s gender neutral, modern and pleasing to the eye. These are the only blankets we’ve been using for the past several weeks. I keep one in our van for Bird to cover up and cuddle with, I have one in her crib when we can get her to sleep there and most of the time I have one on our bed for when she sleeps with us.

The size of these are perfect, they are 48×48″ – so they are perfect to swaddle a newborn and can be used long after that. Boogie even loves snuggling under these!

Mamaway Ring Sling Review

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan and advocate of babywearing, you’ve probably seen posts on my Facebook and Instagram accounts (and even here on the blog!) of J and I wearing our kiddos. My preference is wrapping with woven wraps, but we also love soft structured carriers (mainly Ergo and Beco) and just recently I discovered the beauty of ring slings. I own a woven Didymos sling (made by Sleeping Baby Productions) and LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

When I was given the opportunity to review this Mamaway Ring Sling I definitely jumped at the chance! The colorway I chose is called Rainbow Crayon, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Bright, colorful and perfect for the summer!

I was worried about the rings used, but they are sturdy nylon rings and the mama who made my Didymos Ring Sling recommends using those or aluminum rings. I’m just used to the texture and feel of the aluminum rings, so it just threw me off a little! My only complaint really is that the fabric is very slick, so if you happen to wear a very soft shirt or try to use this over a jacket or cardigan…. it may slip and slide. I had an awful time with that when I first tried this on. It wasn’t so bad when I tried it with a different shirt, but it was pretty annoying! I do love that it’s super lightweight and thin, so it’s amazingly cool for summer babywearing.

I would definitely recommend this sling, there are lots of fabulous colors and designs to choose from and you can purchase one for $67.99 on Amazon.

Baltic Wonder Baltic Amber Teething Necklace Review

If you’re a regular reader then you already know we are big fans of baltic amber for teething. A lot of people think that amber couldn’t possibly help with teething pain, but our children have shown and proven that when they ARE wearing their necklace on a regular basis that they seem to be in less pain.

With Boogie it helped the most with drooling, she did not a drool AT ALL when wearing her necklace, but the one time we broke her necklace she was in a lot more pain and was drooling EVERYWHERE.

Bubby still drooled no matter what, but you could definitely see a difference in his temperament when he was teething. Baby Bird is the same, and I’ve noticed less drooling these past few weeks since I started putting her necklace(s) on more regularly. We have several for Baby Bird, but this one is my go to… I love the coloring, I love how smooth the beads are, and it’s a great fit for her little neck!

IMG_1145

Baltic Amber is anti-inflammatory and contains Succinic acid immune system boosting properties that aid in relieving some of the pain our babies endure during teething. This brand, Baltic Wonder, is made from 100% real Baltic Amber. They are safety knotted and hand crafted to the highest of standards. This necklace is 33cm long and the company gives you a 1 year guarantee!

And please, if you go the route of amber necklaces to help your baby (or toddler!)’s teething pain, remember that these necklaces are meant to be worn against the skin… they should never be chewed on or placed in your baby’s mouth. It should also be taken off for sleep, we either wrap one of Bird’s necklaces around her ankle and place a sock over it or we use a smaller one that we had made specifically for Boogie’s ankle and place a sock over it. Safety first mommas!

Purchase one of these beautiful Baltic Amber necklaces from Amazon for $16.99!
