Breakfast Routine with Silikids

September 26, 2017 § 10 Comments

H e l l o!

Thought I’d share some of Scarlett’s favorites for breakfast each day. We keep it pretty simple most days because I am always on the quick go in the mornings on the week days with trying to get Angelo to school on time. 

Scarlett loves scrambled eggs and she’ll have them if I make them for myself B U T for the days I don’t have enough time to whip some eggs up I stick to these two cereals.

  1. Nestum 5 cereals 
  2. Nurturme Organic Quinoa Cereals quinoa + bananas 


I’ve used Nestum ever since having Angelo. It was one of his favorites for the rich yummy flavor. It has like a sweet vanilla smell to it. I usually can find this at Publix

The Nurturme quinoa + banana is something new I picked up about two months ago. She LOVES this stuff! The best part its organic and a much better alternative to giving your baby rice cereal. If you didn’t know the board of pediatric has redone research on the health benefits of baby rice cereals and its no longer recommended to be given to babies. They have discovered a high in arsenic to be available in rice cereals so I decided to just plain cut out the rice cereals and stick to other iron fortified cereals like oats, barley and wheat. 

When I came across Nurturme and quinoa I was very surprised and decided to give it a try. Its worked out well for us and they offer different mixes of flavors like quinoa + apple, quinoa + sweet potato + raisin, and a protein packed option as well. You can find this brand at Target!

Since both these products are liquid based in the process of prepping. I was on the hunt for the perfect bowl to use. Something with a sturdier bottom and easy to clean. A lot of those plastic bowls keep most residue still on it even if you hand wash it. Thats where Silikids comes in the picture. They kindly sent over some of their products for me to try and they honestly came at the right time because like I said I’ve been lookong for the perfect bowl.

Silikids is a company of silicone based childrens tableware and cups/sippys but their stuff is pretty unique. 
I have been using the Silibowl for breakfast time very frequently. The bowl brings a lid that can be used as a plate and a lid to store away left overs. The lid has a air tight squeeze which leaves food fresh. The bowl can be used in the microwave and it is dishwasher safe as well. 

Also their Siliskin Sippy Cup is such an amazing invention!! This sippy cup can be used by both Scarlett and Angelo. The top of this sippy cup is a stretchy silicone material that can be used over cups of multiple sizes. Which leaves the bottom portion accessible for a bigger kid to use as a regular cup! How freaking A M A Z I NG is that!! It’s a 2 in 1 cup and perfect for home or traveling. Once again it is dishwasher safe, 100% silicone, and can be boiled to sterilize.

Once Scarlett gets a bit older her breakfast routine will start to change and I’ll keep you guys updated on that!

Ciao.

All F R E S H with Little Spoon

September 19, 2017 § 8 Comments


Hi ya’ll!

 I’m so excited to finally share my thoughts on The Little Spoon freshly home delivered baby blends.

Few weeks back we were able to give The Little Spoon a try for 14 days. I say 14 days because thats the longest period their fresh blends could stay refreigerated unless if you store them in the freezer. I wanted to start trying their different baby blends asap because come on the mixtures of different foods on the label just looked too good to wait! I’ll be honest I’m very picky with what I feed my kids and I try EVERYTHING before they do. AND MAMAS I AM NOT JOKING WHEN I SAY EVERYTHING TASTED AS LABELED!! The colors were so rich you can definitely just tell through the packaging.

P R E S E N T A T I O N:

I’ll start off with the packaging these recipes are stored and delivered in. Each recipe of freshly made baby food is poured into a clear 4oz. container, air sealed (not heat pasteurized), and each top has a little spoon attached. I loveeeed this set up! It was such a breeze to just snap open and get straight to feeding Scarlett. The little spoon attached is quite small so when at home I would use our own just because it would get the job done a little quicker, but for on the go it can’t get better than that. Each container comes with a detail explanation of whats inside on its label along with detail pictures of each fruit or veggie used.

R E C I P E S:

Like I mentioned before the recipes taste just as described. They are full of color and some have a great texture to them. Scarlett had a few favorites starting off with sweet potato, apple, red bell pepper & turmeric and beet, banana, & mango. She found a love for bell peppers thats for sure. 

One of the recipes caught my eye and that was the chia mango and coconut milk. It never crossed my mind to feed Scarlett chia seeds so early. I throw them in my own smoothies and yogurt and sometime on Angelo’s. She loved this mixture together. One of Scarlett’s favorite fruits are mangos. She loved this mix so much I want to try making it myself. 

T H O U G H T S:

Overall, Little Spoon is a great alternative for that on the go/ working parent. This is an awesome way to still feel like you are feeding your baby wholesome organically made foods. They are literally doing all the work for you! Even providing you with a spoon in case you forgot because you are so busy trying to pack a diaper bag and not forget your kids at home on the way out! Haha. 

Did you know in order for these organic food pouches or just pouches in general to last a lifetime on shelves without rotting they need to heat press the pouches which kills pretty much all the nutrients our babes need and just leaves an extremely high in take of sugars. I just learned this myself.

I am a stay at home mom to two kiddos and my life is still a hot mess at times. I try my hardest to prep meals for Scarlett at least every week but there are times where I just can’t even squeeze that in and I lean towards food pouches. THIS is b e t t e r than food pouches ladies!

Bottle to Cup Training with Nuby

July 27, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi ya’ll!

I am back sharing with you all my journey through breastfeeding and trying to get this little babe to take at least one bottle! Seriously I never believed anyone when they told me some babes just won’t take a bottle because they rather the boob. Welp Scarlett refuses a bottle from me but if its grandma she’ll take it with no problem.

Scarlett is 8 months now and I’ve started giving her at least 1oz. of water or juice in a sippy cup after each meal to flush everything down. We have been using Nuby’s Natural Touch Bottle to Cup to transition her from its slow flow bottle nipple to the no spill spout. I started introducing her to this bottle a little over 4 months ago and she wasn’t having it! She showed no interest to the nipple at all. At around 6 months I switched it over to the spout and she’s done much better getting the hang of drinking from it with the super easy detachable handles to help her hold on to it.

I carry this cup around in my diaper bag all the time because it holds up to 9oz of liquid which is enough to have for a whole day of being out and about.

Most importantly this bottle to cup is BPA FREE and a great investment since it can be used from 3 months+!

The Nuby Natural Touch Bottle to Cup can be found at Babies R Us.

NanaNubs MassagerĀ 

June 14, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi guys!

We are still in a teething journey with little miss Scarlett. She’s 7 months now and no teeth have broken through yet, but she still does love her teething toys. We have been using our Nuby NanaNubs Massager for about 4 months now and she L O V E S IT! 

The teether massager is shaped like a banana with easy looped handles for tiny little hands. The tip has several little bristles which provide comfrt to baby gums. As well, assists in the eruptions of teeth by gently massaging gums. It is BPA free and 100% super soft silicone.

Scarlett carries this thing attached to her on a clip almost everyday. I do not leave the house without it honestly. I usually have it clipped onto her Orbit baby carseat along with the rest of her toys.

You can find the Nuby NanaNubs Massager on Amazon.
