Bubble Bum

*Disclosure: I have received product free for review. These thoughts are solely my own.

One thing that is always difficult is finding car seats and booster seats that fit multiple across. I am a mom of three and when I was choosing my car I had to keep in mind that boosters and car seats needed to fit. The Bubble Bum booster is the perfect size for fitting three across!
What I love is the values they have at Bubble Bum! Here is what it lists on their website:
“At BubbleBum we feel it is important that we are clear in how we behave and treat each other. We promise to keep these values in our daily lives, not just in the office. They are fundamental to the decisions we make and WHO we are. As a mum, these are things that are also important to our kids. Our vision is to create a global brand of products which are cool, functional and innovative travel solutions for families Some of the values that define us are :
  • We will always act with integrity and honesty.
  • We will always act in the best interest of the company but never to the detriment of the safety of children.
  • We will speak as if others are listening and write only what we would like others to read.
  • We want our team to dream big and be part of the dream.
  • We will be consciously positive in our speech and all communication at all times.
  • Always take the business seriously, never take ourselves too seriously
  • We will choose to have a great day!”
How awesome is that??
You can purchase the Bubble Bum booster for 35.65 USD. Find them on their website HERE.https://www.bubblebum.co/product-category/travel-car-booster-seat/ They come in a variety of colors and are perfect for children 4-11 years of age. They are perfect for travel and everyday use!

Tranquilo Mat

*Disclosure: I have receive product free for review. These thoughts are solely my own.
SLEEP! We all need it and with a newborn sometimes it can be very difficult! The Tranquilo Mat is here to save you from that fourth trimester stage! Your baby is used to being warm and snug inside your belly and when they enter this world it is cold and they need to get used to their newfound limbs. The Tranquilo Mat mimics the sounds and motions of the mother's womb.
Tranquilo Mat is the only portable, soothing, vibrating mat designed for use anytime, anywhere. Unlike vibrating chairs that require breaking contact with your baby, Tranquilo allows you to comfort your baby in your arms. Lightweight and compact, it can easily be folded up and placed in a diaper bag. Tranquilo Mat is versatile and can be used independently or in conjunction with other soothing methods.
The Tranquilo Mat is CPSIA safe and has been tested by a third party laboratory in the USA. The mat is designed to exceed all CPSIA testing and standards. Tranquilo Mat is a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval Winner.
The large Tranquilo Mat is best used for bassinets, cribs, pack and plays, activity mats, play pens, and all those larger spaces where baby likes to hang out (and cry). Does your baby get fussy at the sight of a crib? Instead of bouncing up and down or driving around the block, try a large Tranquilo Mat at naptime.
The small Tranquilo Mat is perfect for baby carriers, strollers, car seats (used over baby after he or she has been properly buckled in), and other smaller portable devices. Heading out to the airport or driving to Grandma’s house? Our small mat can easily travel with any on-the-go baby.
The small mat is priced at 84.99 USD and the large mat is priced at 99.99 USD. You can purchase them HERE.So if you are looking for a hopeful solution for sleep and comfort for your newborn, head on over and try this awesome product!

Zookeeper Sorting Box (from HABA usa)
With this sorting box, children have twice as much fun! Just like in a real zoo, within every vivarium there is a slide: If pushed down, only the half wood shapes fit through the opening. If pushed upward, the opening is large enough for the whole wood shape. This is fun because as children play, they can pretend to feed the animals while becoming more familiar with color and shape recognition.
