GoGo Natural, DinkleDooz #cloth diaper Review & #Giveaway! 9/13

Go Go Natural 

GoGO Natural is a company that was built by a new mom was hiking the mountains in Arizona one winter. She was recently introduced to cloth diapering and wondered how she could fulfil her dream of being a stay at home mom with her new baby and also do something "noble and pure for the betterment of future generations". She wanted to "go natural" with her new baby and she also wanted to help other new mothers go natural with their babies as well. She wanted to GoGo Natural!

She started with a purely diaper based business and now includes a number of product lines that focus on the newborn experience. GoGo Natural is a full service provider of almost all necessities a mother will need to jump start her natural baby lifestyle. 

GoGo Natural carries cloth diapers, cloth diaper accessories, products for breastfeeding mothers, baby gear: carriers, leg warmers, pacifiers, etc, along with some items for the home. So head on over and check GoGo Natural out!
We received a NEW Dinkledooz Color - Chocolate Dinkledooz one-size cloth diaper which included a small and a large insert to review. Both Cade and Ezio wore the Dinkledooz OS diaper with no leaks! Cade is two years old and 32lbs and Ezio is eight months old and 24lbs. I was only able to get a few pictures of Ezio wearing this diaper, but Cade loves his fluff so I knew he would love to try on a new diaper that we have not previously used. The inside of the Dinkledooz is super soft cotton micro-fleece, which is great for both of my boys as they both have eczema and sensitive skin along with being great for any newborns sensitive and delicate skin. 

Dinkledooz features:
Wide Pocket: Have you ever tried to stuff a diaper with a pocket opening that wasn't even as wide as your hand? I know I have! What is even worse with the narrow pockets for stuffing is when you have a soiled diaper and your trying to get the inserts out with out shaking feces all over the bathroom. Oh yuck! Well, Dinkledooz has a super wide pocket! No problem to stuff or unstuff! Even my fiancee (6'2" ... tall equals big hands) is able to stuff the Dinkledooz when with other diapers he hands them over to me. 
Snaps: Dinkledooz uses only the best resin snaps on their diapers! No more fear of snaps coming loose when the diaper is in use. Secure your diaper with the sound of each snap!
Flap-Back: Ever have an insert come flying out the back of your diaper? "Flap-Back" retention system is a tuck of fabric that keeps the inserts from rising out the back. I can't even count how many times Cade has come over to me and I have checked his diaper and there is an insert sticking up and out of the back of his diaper. Yikes! Don't sit on the couch or any other fabric surface! Dinkledooz puts that fear at ease with their Flap-Back!
Quantity: To be considered a "one Size" diaper the diaper has to literally be ONE SIZE. To me this means it has to fit from BIRTH/newborn to Toddler/ potty trained and out of diapers. This is why the Dinkledooz come with TWO inserts of different sizes, newborn- for newborn stage up to the large- for toddler stage. Newborn inserts are also great for doubling up the larger babies and toddlers.
Sizes: Dinkledooz fits from newborn, 8lbs all the way up to potty training, 35lbs. Dinkledooz specially designed their newborn insert to be narrower to limit the bulking for your precious little bundle of joy. You don't want your baby to look as thought they are "bow legged" as Dinkledooz puts it, you want them to be comfortable and to still be able to fit in those super cute little tiny clothes. The larger insert is then wider for the later age. 
Material: Dinkledooz inserts are made of the softest microfiber material making them easy to slide into the wide pocket and fully absorbent with the textured absorbancy of cotton. Wash after wash after wash, these inserts are still just as absorbent if not more absorbent (hence having to "prep" cloth diapers).


  Ezio loves his Dinkledooz diaper! The hip snaps are a plus for me, now that Ezio is crawling and Cade is a monkey (has been since he started walking at 9 months old) we really need the hip snaps to prevent the wing drooping, which can lead to huge messes. Yuck. 

The waist snaps are also great. There are cross over snaps for the smaller babies and expand out quite a bit for the larger toddlers.
 Funny as it may be, both Ezio and Cade wear the Dinkledooz on the same snap settings for the waist and rise. Ezio has a chubbier waist and thighs and Cade has more of a slimmer thigh and a pretty "skinny" waist. 

Cade is a pretty heavy wetter and the Dinkledooz have enough room on the inside for all four of the "necessary" inserts we use for him at night. The Dinkledooz held up amazingly well compared to some of our other diapers we have attempted to use at night with Cade. 

The Dinkledooz have a great fit around both Cade and Ezio's (Ezio pictured to the right) thighs/legs. Thus, preventing leaks and since Ezio is breastfed, also preventing those explosive breastfed baby poopy diapers. Two thumbs up in my book!

Another plus about the snap positioning on the Dinkledooz is that we can get a tight fit around both of our boys waists with out hurting their tummy or sides, but also with out the diaper pretty much falling off of their booties. Especially with Ezio I have a hard time getting other diapers to the correct and comfortable setting for his chubby waist, but Dinkledooz are great.

Not too tight in the waist, not too loose. We've had some diapers that his poor little butt crack would show or hang out of when he would lean forward to start crawling. A simple, but like of mine is the positioning of the tag, with most other diapers the tag is on the wing of the diaper which often rubs on Ezio's skin causing an irritated patch of skin. 

Dinkledooz wash up very good as well! I definitely recommend Dinkledooz.

TigTagz 4 Kidz ID Wristbands Review & Giveaway US 9/1

Tigtagz ID Bracelets for Kids 

TigTagz 4 kIDz offers Identification Bracelets, Safety Shirts and Iron on labels. The ID bracelets are tear proof, water and sweat resistant, smudge proof and can be worn anywhere there is a risk of your child becoming lost. Bracelets can be customized by TigTagz or ordered blank so you can write your own information in by the: "If lost, please call:". 


 We received 10 blank ID bracelets from TigTagz 4 kIDz to review. Two each of the different TigTagz below. I love that they are gender neutral so they work for both of our sons and also our daughter! We didn't need multiple different packs. I also love that they come in this ziploc type little baggie so you can throw them right in your diaper bag and have them handy at all time in case you go to a crowded public place or the park unexpectedly.
 Ours are blank, which means I have to write in our phone number... my hand writing is horrible so just in-vision your beautiful hand writing instead of mine. :) 
Our 6yr old daughter is going on her first Daisy Girl Scout Sleepover Camp tomorrow! I am quite the nervous wreck as this will be her first time anywhere for any amount of time with out myself, my fiancee or another close family member being there with her. We have to drop her off at school at 3 P.M. tomorrow and pick her back up sometime on Sunday. I will most definitely be putting the above beach themed bracelet on her before we take her to school. Knowing that the TigTagz are tear proof, sweat proof and water resistant all reassure me that this one TigTag will be enough to last her through her over night camping trip. She usually is not a wanderer and she is usually more of a leader then a follower, but with 20 other girls her age and a bit older (Brownies Troop is going as well, same leader) girls as well it makes me nervous that she may be peer pressured into walking off with a couple other girls. While the TigTag may not be a GPS tracking device, it is still better then hoping when afraid she will be able to dial home or remember our phone number, or hoping that the piece of paper put in her pocket with our phone number on it stays in her pocket, etc, the TigTagz is on her to stay! 

You can use TigTagz for a wide range of events, parties, gatherings, trips, etc. For example, to the zoo, park, beach, your local state fair, school field trips, etc. The ID bracelets fit MY wrists, along with of course all three of my children!

Check out TigTagz and place your order today!

Butt Bench Review

Butt Bench | The All in One Bathtub Seat 

Butt Bench was first created in 2006. Butt Bench is a sturdy and high quality patent pending bath tub seat. All Butt Benches are made out of real, natural wood. You can use Butt Bench to make shaving easier, to sit down on, relax or even turn your shower into a sauna.

Butt Bench comes in Cedar, Pine, Pink Pine and White Pine. The Butt Bench also comes in 12 inch or 15 inch lengths. The Butt Bench fits on tubs that are 29 inches across. Butt Bench also offers some bath safety products as well.

I received the 15 inch, Cedar Butt Bench to review. 
Before using the Butt Bench, when you would reach for a soap or a shampoo almost every time another one would fall and often times it ended in a domino affect while trying to put one back. So I put half the soaps in our towel cabinet, well that didn't work so well as I'd forget that the face wash or a certain body wash was in the cabinet and not in the shower, but I'd want to use... of course.... the ones that were not in the shower. It was just always one thing after another. But you figure with five people living here and only one bathroom, all soaps and what not are all crammed into a fairly small bathroom.
Another nice thing is that the Butt Bench does not tilt to one side or another. It lays flat unlike those basket type things that hang from the shower head and as soon as you take out one bottle or even touch the thing it tips to one side, often times knocking bottles out. Those basket hanging things always made me so irritated. 
This is before we received our Butt Bench. 

The Butt Bench is awesome! Now I can fit even more body washes and shampoos in our shower/tub at once and not have to get out of the shower to get a specific body wash or shampoo I want to use. Even with so many body washes and shampoos there is still a TON of room to sit down on the Butt Bench. There are two suction cups on the back of the Butt Bench to suction to the wall for added security and safety. 

Even with the 15 inch Butt Bench, there is still plenty of room in our shower. So there is no need to remove the Butt Bench. Even while children are bathing in the bath tub, you still do not need to remove the tub. My children never even sit in the tub near the back wall where the Butt Bench is, so this definitely works out perfect for us.
 The Butt Bench would have been my best friend while I was pregnant with any of my three monkeys. I always ended up sitting on the cold side of the tub, which is way uncomfortable especially while very pregnant. 

 Even with the Butt Bench you can still close the curtain so no water from your shower is splashing out all over your bathroom. Whether or not the shower curtain would close or not was one of the first questions that popped into my mind. 

A great feature on the Butt Bench is that they left slits between each board for the water to drain through there and not pool on the boards. The Butt Bench is made of very thick and strong wood so I am pretty confident that the boards will not warp from being in the shower. Butt Bench is very well made.  

You can purchase your Butt Bench HERE or purchase one for an elderly loved one.

$50 and Aquaphor by Eucerin Review & Giveaway US 8/26


Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Aquaphor Gentle Wash & Shampoo are recommended by pediatricians to safely care for your babies skin. 

Aquaphor Healing Ointment is trusted by dermatologists, pediatricians and parents! Aquaphor Healing Ointment provides the extra gentle care your baby's tender and delicate skin needs. Free of fragrances, preservatives and dyes. This healing ointment can be used for many of your babies skin care needs such as, but definitely not limited to dry skin, eczema, sensitive skin, diaper rashes and chapped cheeks so your baby stays happy, healthy and well protected. Aquaphor Healing Ointment is clinically proven to reduce diaper rash within six hours, with OUT the mess of zinc-oxide. Aquaphor Healing Ointment can also be used to help heal minor cuts, scrapes and burns. 
Please note, if you use Aquaphor Healing Ointment or any ointment, gel, cream, etc. even ones specifically for burns, please be sure to apply cool compresses to draw the heat out before applying anything to the burn! Be sure the burn, even sunburn is no longer hot or warm to the touch before applying to the burn. Other wise you will trap the heat in causing the burn to worsen and even spread. Unfortunately I know this from experience. My now six year old daughter got her foot and side of her ankle burned when she was six months old from a cup of hot soup. When we arrived at the ER the nurse soaked her little foot in cool sterile water for an hour or two, but the heat was not all out from her burn. The nurse at the ER ignored my mother, who is in the medical field and was even in her scrubs and applied Silvadene to the burn and wrapped my six month old daughters foot in 16 feet of gauze! We were sent home like this and the next morning we woke up to yellow oozing from the gauze, my daughter ended up in Children's Hospital and needed skin graphs! So please use with caution. On another note, we did use Aquaphor in the healing process once it was OKAY to apply to it. My daughter lost NO pigment, she is half Hispanic and you could never tell her foot and ankle were burned!  

You can help protect your babies skin by using Aquaphor Gentle Wash & Shampoo. Soaps and even water can dry out and irritate babies skin, but this soap FREE formula gently cleanses skin and hair. Aquaphor Gentle Wash & Shampoo is enriched with soothing chamomile essence and pro-vitamin B5. It is specially designed and even clinically proven to be mild for baby's sensitive skin. Aquaphor Gentle Wash & Shampoo is recommended by pediatricians. Soap-free, fragrance-free and tear-free.

 We received Aquaphor Gentle Wash & Shampoo and two Healing Ointments. Both Cade and Ezio have sensitive skin and eczema. Cade has not had any big break out patches from his eczema since we started using the Aquaphor Gentle Wash & Shampoo and the Healing Ointment. We have used the Aquaphor Healing Ointment on Cade in the past with great results. Cade's worse eczema break outs are usually in his diaper area and Aquaphor is the only thing that not only clears it up, but also prevents it from returning. When we use other creams and diaper creams on his diaper area it seems to take it away at first, but then it comes right back and often time it comes back worse then it was in the first place and this all happens with in a couple days to a week. Aquaphor Healing Ointment even helps heal once the other cream has failed to do its job. 
This was the first time we have used any Aquaphor with Ezio and he has, currently while using the Aquaphor, patches on his elbows, a little bit on his tummy and on his shins. However, Ezio is learning to crawl so he is exposed to way more irritants than Cade who is walking and not rubbing on the rug or floor all day. The Aquaphor has not yet completely cleared up Ezio's eczema patches, but it seems as though the Aquaphor has helped reduce the itching. I truly believe that once Ezio is crawling correctly instead of dragging one leg or the other along the rug and floor, the Aquaphor will be a lot better in healing Ezio's eczema patches. Also, I have not covered his patches once applying the Aquaphor so more likely then not the Aquaphor is probably being rubbed off before it is given the chance to help heal. 
We have also used the Healing Ointment on Ezio's Drool Rash, it clears it up right away! Which is great because he is a breastfed baby and often time with babies who have eczema and are breastfed if the drool rash or eczema flare-up around the mouth is not treated properly or promptly the rash becomes out of control and often times leaves the baby in too much pain or discomfort to nurse. We don't want that to happen!  
I am very pleased with our experiences with Aquaphor. Neither of the boys have had any sort of reaction to the Aquaphor products.

You can purchase Aquaphor products at retails all over the US!

UGLee Pen Review & Giveaway! US 8/22

ugly pen logo 

Dr. James Lee created the Ultimate Grip Pen, a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is not only designed and created by Dr. Lee, but also used by him! I have heard of and seen numerous products created or design by doctors, but they never seem to use their own products.

I received 3 of the above UGLee Pens.

Per this pen only weighs 11 grams. I weighed this on my scale and it weighs 10 grams per my scale. All scales are different so it is most likely more accurate at 11 grams per UGLee Pen. "11 grams is less then 1/2 an ounce! Less mass, means less inertia, more comfort."

This pen has a full size grip that covers more then half of the pen! Not only does the grip cover half of the pen, but it is not a hard plastic or rubber grip, this grip is super soft and squishy. Does not cause a blister when using this pen to write a lot as do the hard or more firm grips. Ultimate comfort! The overall shape as well as the detailed contours are perfectly engineered to follow the anatomy of the hand. You don't have to grip this material, it grips you. 

The ink in the UGLee Pan is mated with the smoothest ink system known, smoother than any roll ball, gel ink or fountain ink pen. I gave my mom one of my three UGLee Pens as she is a small business owner, she is a handywoman and writes up numerous bids, sometimes the same bid repeatedly until she gets it just right as she is a perfectionist. Anyways, after handing the pen to her w/out saying a single thing about the pen, the first thing she noticed was that it is NOT a gel pen, which she was rather excited about. 

Onto our review!
I absolutely love the UGLee Pens I received!! They are so comfortable to use for a short while to a long while at a time! My mom also greatly likes the UGLee Pen. I'm not sure if any of you know, but I do have Ankylosing Spondylitis and Fibromyalgia. My hands hurt from writing a short note with a regular pen, however after writing TWO pages full my hand was just a tad sore, less pain then when I usually write with other pens, but about the same amount of pain as my hands and joints are always in. I have not yet developed a blister or any other type of soreness. The pen's grip allows you to ease up on how tight you may normally hold your pens or pencils, which apparently I never realized how firmly I grip other pens until I used the UGLee Pen. The UGLee Pens would be great for EVERYONE, children in school and learning to write with a pen, college students, adult in their jobs, etc. Another thing I like about the UGLee Pens is that you can purchase ink refills! I myself do not know of any other pens that offer this.

You can purchase yourself a 3-pk of UGLee Pen at for $19.99

Scentsy Warmer & Melts Review & Giveaway! US & Canada 8/31

What is Scentsy? Scentsy is a direct sales company of wickless candles! People-to-people direct sales of amazing smells! With Scentsy, you can order online from Melissa's personal website. If your in the Milwaukee, WI area you could even host a Scentsy party, wouldn't it be great to have friends and family over, great food and beverages (if you wish of course) and your house smelling absolutely yummy?!?!

I received a Weave Green Plug-In Scentsy Warmer along with Baked Apple Pie (RV$5), Clean Breeze and Lotus Cove Sentsy Bars.
I absolutely love all three of these scents! I have the plug-in in my kitchen and can smell the scents through out my entire house! The first scent I tried in my plug-in warmer was the baked apple pie, it literally smelled as though there were an apple pie baking in my oven. The Clean Breeze and Lotus Cove scents also spread through out my entire house. I only use one piece of the Scentsy Bar at a time and it last forever! I had the plug-in on for 12 hours straight for 3 days and there was still wax left in the warmer. At $5 per bar and eight pieces per bar one scentsy bar could last for quite a while! I was truly amazed at the length of time and the strength of the scent through out the house. 

The Scentsy Bars came packaged in a cooler type bag with an ice pack to prevent them from melting during delivery.

This is the Baked Apple Pie Scentsy Bar.
The pieces of the bar break off very nicely.

This is just one piece of the bar. Which was a strong enough scent through out my house for us. If you want a stronger scent you can always add more pieces. With the plug-ins you should be able to fit 2 pieces in at once. 

The Plug-In Warmers give off a nice little glow on the wall.  

Place an order in my basket party here! EVERYTHING IS 10% OFF THIS MONTH!!!
