The Land of Nod Spring Collection

Land Of Nod: Design for Kids and People That Used to be Kids

Have you heard of The Land of Nod? I just came across this store and it is pretty whimsical. You will find some great stuff at The Land of Nod. Head over there and check them out for yourself! 

Milk crates for storage? 

 Having a baby? You will find some really neat baby furniture and decor at The Land of Nod!

My son has a Trundle! These things are so cool and functional. Such a great idea for sleep overs. Super Cheap too.

 Definitely warming up to the idea of twin beds once baby girl is older. Since the girls have to share an awkward space.

Really fun play room ideas!

Under $10 finds!

Land Of Nod: Our Spring Collection has Arrived!

What's an Ad swap? Link Up

In my blog hopping, I came across this great idea. Ad Swapping! 

You are probably thinking to yourself, "that doesn't sound healthy". 
Ok, maybe not.

It is real simple. You promote my blog and I promote your blog, page, website.. Etc. You catch  my drift.

I also do have options for paid ad space if swapping isn't your thing. But really, who wouldn't want FREE ad space?

I came up with this great idea, a monthly ad swap link up! I'm hoping it is a great success. I also have a Show and Tell Sunday Link up that I do twice a month. So look out for that too.

The swap will be good for ONE entire month. 

Make sure the blog and or product fits your blog niche, before accepting any paid or free blog ad.
This link up will be open for 2 weeks and posted once a month.

Tweet this.

Link up your AD page or post. 
Only ONE link per person.
Feel free to promote this link up.

One blog will be featured each month in the link ups!
Co-Host spots available.
I am open to suggestions as well.

Chubby Baby review - Sponsor Spotlight

As part of my Mama Madness Giveaway, Collen from Chubby Baby sent me some of her beautiful baby clothes to try with baby girl. I loved the adorably bright colors and softness of the lace. Usually I find lace to be stiff, but I was pleasantly surprised. 

We received the items below.
Pink Romper
Purple lace leggings
Pink Ruffle bloomers

Baby Girl looks so adorable in her pretty pink romper. The Hot Pink bloomers are made with chiffon ruffles. Adorably cute and completely soft. Perfect add on to her fluff! Her leggings didn't quite fit, but they will. Cannot wait to use them. She is definitely a girly girl. 

I loved working with Colleen and cannot wait for our giveaway coming up March 1st. 

Go like Chubby Baby on Facebook and give Colleen some love.

Chubby Baby also has Car Seat Slip Covers. Those are so adorable. A great way to bring an old car seat (or new) back to life! 

*I received the products noted above. All opinions are 100% my own regardless.

DIY Cloth Wipe Solution

If you use Cloth Diapers, why not use cloth wipes? It's real easy to make your own cloth diaper solution. Even easier to use and toss into your wet bag. What's more, one less thing to throw into our landfills! I have used some great recipes for cloth wipes. My all time favorite ingredient is Coconut Oil. It is delicate on skin, and smells amazing. 

Coconut Oil can be used for a variety of things, but I prefer it to not be in my food. (Yuck!)
It is great as a diaper rash ointment and wipe solution because it keeps yeast away. It does solidify a bit, but it melts into baby's skin, so don't fret. You can add it to just about any wipe recipe, but here is my basic wipe solution. Enjoy! :-)

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Cup Water
1 Tbsp mild baby soap (We use TruKid)
Wipe Container

Optional Oils as follows 
Calendula oil
Tea tree oil
Rosemary oil
Eucalyptus oil
Lavender oil

 Onto the directions.

Melt your Coconut Oil with your Hot water. 
Add your favorite baby soap and stir.
Pour over 15-25 baby wipes.

Close your wipe container, and shake. Careful not to spill.

You can use and old flannel receiving blanket and cut it up. They make perfect cloth wipes!
Note: Some diapers will repell certain oils. I have never had an issue. You may want to designate a separate wet bag if using essential oils.
