Product Review & Giveaway - BabyButton Breastfeeding Cover

~ Posted on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 8:30 AM ~

I came across a Tweet on the opportunity to review breastfeeding cover and after a couple of tweeting and emails to and fro, I was contacted by Janell with the green light to not only review one of her breastfeeding covers, I also get to offer another breastfeeding cover to one lucky follower of my blog! (Yes, yes, that means, another worldwide giveaway!)

For those of you who are staying out of Malaysia, we don't nurse in public and what we do is either cover up or we nurse in nursing/baby rooms if they are available, else, we have to make do with hiding somewhere to nurse I guess...

Without further delay, here's my review on the awesome life & time saving BabyButton Breastfeeding Cover, and yes, you get to see my face which is rarely shown on my blog! (* blushing *)

 

"We take great pride in sourcing the highest quality materials at an affordable price. We see the BabyButton collection as no ordinary baby product, this collection has been inspired by a Mum made for Mums. These products are not mass produced that adds no real purpose to the baby or the mum. We offer practical solutions to real problems that Mothers face. Baby products that have a purpose, we make a difference to the whole Motherhood experience. We offer real products, real solutions to common baby and Motherhood problems." 

I requested to review the Big Blue Jacks Breastfeeding Cover design because it looks oh-so gorgeous, I'm into blue colors now and I really like the pattern (kinda like molecules or DNA right?).

FYI I tested the breastfeeding cover on the following areas:

* Washing - Colors stayed and did not stain other clothing

* Drying - Dries up really fast due to the cotton material and size remains the same

* Features - With approximately 74cm in width, it is able to cover up both my sides, front and top.  I like the Easy On/Off Buckle which can be easily manoeuvred and the strap on the neck is also easy to adjust by one hand. In addition, I like the plastic covering for the neck support which is softer, and not as stiff as my other breastfeeding cover. It also allows me to peep in to see my girl while I'm breastfeeding her.

* Storage - Due to its cotton material, I'm able to fold up the breastfeeding cover into my small diaper bag. It takes up very minimal space in my often cramp diaper bag.

* Other Usage - I also used the breastfeeding cover as a blanket when my girl is in her stroller.

* Functionality - It covers all the sides and areas that are supposed to be covered, front, both sides and top. I feel at ease to be able to breastfeed wherever I am.

* Ventilation - Very good ventilation and breathable material and I don't feel myself or my girl being hot while she was tucked inside the cover during her nursing time.

* Places I use the breastfeeding cover so far - Church and shopping malls that we frequently go to.

* Note: Top right pic of Alyson's head which I initially left uncovered.
I'm trying to show that even when I do not cover her head, you still can't see my breasts.

~ Posted on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 8:43 AM ~

This is my 2nd VeggieTales DVD review after "God Loves You Very Much" and to be honest, I am starting to like VeggieTales after seeing how my toddler fell in love with it. I even bought one of the older released DVD ("Heroes of The Bible Lions, Shepherds and Queens") Anyway, here is my review:

I'm a full-time mummy

DVD synopsis:

"Larry the Cucumber hosts “The Silly Song Telethon” and counts down the top favorite silly songs of all-time... voted for by the fans!! The fun continues with a surprise introduction of a never-before-seen, new Silly Song chosen by Larry the Cucumber from thousands of fan submissions! Includes 20 great Silly Songs:
    * I Love My Lips
    * The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything
    * Belly Button
    * His Cheeseburger
    * Endangered Love

Look at the picture above of Ben watching the DVD intensely! This DVD is packed with over 20 Silly Songs and some of my our favorites are:

* I Love My Lips (My boy particularly enjoys and always cracked up laughing the part where Larry sings real fast)
* Belly Button (Our favorite, a song with a unique tune and my boy is slowly memorising this song!)
* Lance the Turtle (Arghh... this is one song with a catchy tune! It's been playing on my head over and over and over again!)
* Gated Community (I laughed when I saw the song title, but nonetheless a very nice song too!)
* Pizza Angel (Oh boy, this is another catchy-stuck-in-my-head song!)

A fun and entertaining DVD that is a must to have!

Product Review & Giveaway - CityGrips

~ Posted on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 9:34 AM ~

Every day I am thankful to God for blessing me with continuous opportunities for reviews and giveaways of awesome, awesome products! This time, I would like to share with you guys on this awesome product I get to review. So here goes my review for the "CityGrips":

I'm a full-time mummy

CityGrips

About the company:

"CityGrips was born purely out of necessity. It all began one hot summer day when it became unbearable to push the stroller barehanded. Grossed out by the sticky germ infested grip came the idea for a grip cover that was soft, durable, washable and stylish."

Why use it?
* Protect your hands, keeping them clean & comfy.
* Defend against dirt, sweat and grime buildup.
* Prevent passing germs to your child.
* Towel grip covers absorb sweat.
* Keep it simple with easy zip-on, zip-off & machine-wash.
* Protect your handlebar grips from wear & tear.
* Customize your stroller with stylish patterns.
* Find your stroller in a crowd.

When I first contemplated on whether I should write in to request for a review opportunity, the thought of how does this thing work did crossed my mind... I mean, how the heck am I going to put on the cover onto our double handlebar stroller? And when the product arrives and I checked it out front, back, left and right, then I got it!

And yes, I even checked out the insides and took pictures of it as well to show you guys how it works! Just slot in the grip covers and close the Velcro tab together! Easy peasy!

The material is oh-so-comfy to the touch, I seriously love caressing holding the stroller's handle now! 

The Velcro tape stays strong and the grip cover is sewn beautifully, even my MIL commented the nice sewing work of the covers!

I also love the design I chose (which is ZigZag Color - Double Bar) as the colors are very eye catching and it's so easy to spot our stroller even from far! Ahhhh.... love it!

Seriously people... I've been looking for excuses to go out more often just so I can use the stroller and be seen with the oh-so-chic-and-awesome handlegrip!

Love love love love love it! You really should get it if you have a stroller too!
