What Could Be As Soft & As Sweet?

In My Opinion,
Few Things Are Quite As Soft & As Sweet
As A Baby's Cute Little Bare Feet.

So When I Discover One Of The Few Things That Are....
Of Course I Have To Share.

My son received these Adorable BEARPAW Hazel PAWZ boots
(sent free of charge for this review),
 just in time for our trip to Connecticut and they are just
As Soft And Sweet As Can Be.

Why They're A Must-Have:

With Cooler weather approaching you will want to keep your baby's feet
 comfy, cozy, soft and sweet and these little PAWZ will do just that.

These little boots are made of super soft suede and completely lined with fluffy sheepskin so they are super plush and warm.

The way that they lace up in the back makes it easy to  get them on and off his feet
and the lace-up design ensures a proper fit.

They are actually really lightweight
so they don't restrict your little one from moving around either.

In fact,
Bresden kicks his feet and giggles when he has them on so I'm pretty sure that he loves them too.

I have to be honest...
I love my son's cute little piggies so much that covering them up is
not something that I was looking forward to
Thanks To
 Covering Those Cute Little Feet This Winter
Will Actually Be BEARable.

It really wouldn't be fair if BEARPAW footwear were only available for babies, right?

So you will be happy to know that
BEARPAW offers footwear to fit the entire family. 

The Perfect Gift For Everyone On Your List!

DO NOT Pack Everything You Need When Traveling With A Baby....

You heard me right....
Pack Everything You Need
 When Traveling With A Baby!

I know you are probably thinking that this sounds a bit crazy, right?
Well once you hear about this next company
you are going to think that the people who pack everything they need are the crazy ones.

I have had the pleasure of sharing some of the wonderful
Modern Mommy Travel Must-Haves
 that I packed and took along with me on our trip to Connecticut
 but I am just as
 excited to share with you
 what I didn't have to pack....

Thanks to

Thanks to the wonderful service provided by I didn't have to pack everything that I needed for our trip ....a box filled with items that we would need once we arrived at our destination was waiting for us when we arrived (sent free of charge for this review) .
Why It's A Must-Have:

Instead of running around town buying stuff that we would need before we left and then trying to cram it into my (already jam-packed) suitcase I just sat down at the computer, picked out the items that we would need on and they did the rest.

The box was waiting for us at my sister's house when we arrived.
I didn't have to lug a bunch of extra stuff through the airport.
I didn't have to be concerned about extra baggage fees.
I had the peace of mind that everything we needed would already be waiting for us at our destination.
We didn't have to try to find what we needed once we got there us more time to enjoy with our family.
When it comes to traveling with a baby or young child, they have thought of everything – no matter where you are going. Whether your trip is to the beach, a hotel with a pool, camping in the woods or taking to the ski slopes, they offer specialized packages to meet all of your baby’s needs for a long weekend, or a full week. From diapers and baby food to booster seats and portable beds, they ship and track your package to make sure it’s waiting for you when you reach your destination – anywhere in the world.

They carry the brands that your family already uses and trusts.
will even fulfill special requests
 for items not offered on their site.
So if there is something special that your little one just can't be without they've got you covered.
I was able to order Bresden's favorite "hard to find" pacifiers and Colic Calm...and it was super easy.

The representative who handled my order was great...she responded quickly to my questions and concerns, sent me updates on my order status and followed up afterward to make sure that I was completely satisfied with my Jet Set Babies Travel Experience!
 Thanks Maghan!

They also have
another website that I would love to share
 with you called

This website is your one stop shop for baby shower gifts that are sure to please new parents.
They keep their selecion of items limited...keeping it simple, so you are not overwhelmed with too many choices.
I love that they offer monthly diaper delivery services...
What parent wouldn't appreciate that?
I have had the pleasure of experiencing this service first-hand as I am excited to share that I was recently selected as the winner on their blog giveaway of a 3-Month Diaper Delivery....and it is great! 
I have already received my first shipment of diapers and included with the shipment was a magnet (complete with their phone number and website) so I can contact them when I am ready for them to ship out my next month's supply and let them know which size and brand I would like.
I cannot even begin to tell you how convenient this is!  
It's the gift that keeps on giving!

I highly recommend that you keep these two websites in mind when planning a trip or shopping for the perfect baby shower gift.

My Brest Friend Travel Pillow & Nursing Cover Review & Giveaway...

Our Next Two
 Modern Mommy Travel Must-Haves
 come from the makers of the nursing pillow that is
The #1 Choice of Lactation Consultants
 This Mommy Blogger,

"When babies are away from their normal surroundings and off their regular routine, its comforting for them to have the familiarity of their My Brest Friend."
I love my My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow
 but with all the additional baggage fees these days
 I didn't think that there was any way that I would be able to take
My Brest Friend
 with us to Connecticut. 

So you can imagine my EXCITEMENT when I found out that
My Brest Friend makes a Travel Pillow
(we were sent one free of charge for this review). 

Not only would I be able to use the pillow when we reached our destination but because it is inflatable and compact enough to fit in a diaper bag I was able to use it on the airplane too.

It Worked Great!
 It was so comfortable for Bresden that he ended up falling asleep on the pillow after he nursed and since I was so comfortable too I let him rest on it throughout the rest of the flight. 

A couple of helpful tips if you are planning to use your
My Best Friend Travel Pillow on and airplane:

 I would recommend that you inflate the pillow & put the cover on it 
(then deflate it with the cover still on it) before you pack,
so that way the cover is already on it when you inflate it with limited space on the plane. 
That is what I did & it worked out great!
I should also mention that if you inflate the pillow before you reach cruising altitude you will probably need to let a little air out as it will expand with the change in cabin pressure.  But letting some of the air out was super easy as I just reached under the pillow, unzipped it a bit and opened up the valve to release a little bit of air (all while my baby was resting/nursing comfortably on the pillow).

Why It's A Must-Have:

•Same patented design & features as the Original My Brest Friend pillow
(in fact the covers are even interchangeable)

•Wrap around design secures to the body helping mom and baby maintain positioning and latch on
•Back rest helps you maintain good posture during feeding and prevents sore back and neck
•Firm, flat cushion keeps baby from rolling
•Adjustable, silent-release strap fits Moms or Dads comfortably and unlatches without waking baby
•Arm and elbow rests eliminate shoulder stress
•Convenient pocket keeps water bottles, burp cloths, phone, and other items within reach

•Packs flat and fits in diaper bag pockets

•Ideal for airplanes and overnights

•Lightweight and easy to store

I also had the pleasure of reviewing a fabulous
Nursing Cover from My Brest Friend
(sent free of charge for this review).

The My Brest Friend Nursing Cover provides mothers the privacy that they need to comfortably breastfeed in public or on the go.

I proved that you can really breastfeed descreetly anywhere you go with this cover as I even used it to feed my baby in the middle of Time Square!!!

The easy view design lets moms easily check on their nursing babies while staying completely covered.

Why It's A Must-Have:

•Private easy view design & great coverage
( Allowing you to nurse just about anywhere.... so you won't miss out on the fun)

•Adjustable for all sizes
(the adjustable strap has a clip like you would find on denim overalls that prevents the strap from slipping so you can nurse with confidence)

•Breathable 100% cotton

•Convenient pocket

  • Available in a variety of designer fabrics
(so you can nurse in style) 

Works great with My Brest Friend nursing pillow

Baby B'Air Kept My Baby Safe In The Air

Well, we are back from our fun-filled trip to Connecticut
 Safe and Sound, 
thanks in part to the first
Modern Mommy Travel Must-Have
 that I am excited to share....

The Baby B'Air Flight Vest

Why It's A Must-Have:

The Baby B'Air Flight Vest is the
 The award winning design
 secures your child to your lap belt
 protect your baby against the unexpected dangers of turbulence
 and to
 keep your child safely on your lap during your flight.

I really don't know why these are not provided by the airlines for the safety of ALL lap-children.

We encountered some tubulence on our flight which could have made for a very dangerous...not to mention stressful and scary experience but I had the comfort of knowing that my baby was safe and secure in his Baby B'Air Flight Vest (provided free of charge for this review).
I could see how a child could be seriously injured if they were not wearing a Baby B'Air & I cannot imagine ever traveling without one.

Bresden didn't mind wearing the vest at all.
And I think he looked pretty cute wearing it!

The fabric was soft, pliable and comfortable enough for him to sleep in  & the strap was long enough that I could move him around on my lap and even feed him.

  It is important to note that there is an existing FAA regulation that restricts the use of all restraint devices other than car seats
 during take-off, taxi and landing
(a regualtion  that Baby B'Air is trying to get the FAA to change). 
But lucky for us, Baby B'Air is approved for use during the cruising portion of the flight when suprisingly 90% of injuries occur.
And you didn't hear this from me....but it just *might* be possible for a baby wearing a Baby B'Air Flight Vest to go unnoticed during taxi, take-off and landing....if you catch my meaning.

If you are planning to travel with a lap-child I highly recommend that you consider purchasing a
Baby B'Air Flight Vest
 for your child's safety and your peace of mind.

"You would never travel by car with baby not secured....
Why do it by air?"
