Delicious Artisan Recipe Fillets From Gorton's ~ Review & Giveaway #RealSolutions

*I received the products below free in order to facilitate this review. As always, all opinions are my own. see disclosure.

I have been looking for quick and delicious meal ideas for after our baby arrives. I was recently given the opportunity to try the New Gorton's Artisan Recipe Fillets. They have four delicious varieties available Roasted Garlic & Herb, Lemon & Cracked Peppercorn, Southwest Tortilla, and Southern Style.

We chose the Southwest Tortilla variety, and LOVED them. The Southwest Tortilla Artisan Fillets have real crushed tortilla chips, Tex-Mex spices, and a hint of chili. They are made with Wild Caught Alaska Pollock. This box included 5 large fish fillets. To cook I followed the baking directions on the package, and after they were finished baking wrapped them in a tortilla with a romaine lettuce mix and cheese. Then added a side of chips and salsa. Think next time I will also add chopped green & banana peppers to get more veggies. This meal was a big hit! The Southwest Tortilla Artisan Fillets were not too spicy, and even my six year old son loved his wrap... gobbling it down. {He is our picky eater}

Build A Bear ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

*I received the product(s) below free for to overview. As always, all opinions are my own. see disclosure.

With both of my kiddos, I have received their first stuffed animal before they even arrived on the scene from friends and family. There's just something about giving a little friend to cuddle with to kids and babies that people can't resist. Now with our new little guy arriving soon, I have been thinking about what I would love for his first stuffed animal to be. Honestly, only one place came to mind Build A Bear!

We are very much a Build A Bear family, they just have so many different stuffed animal choices that extends way beyond Bears. From the holiday themed Easter Bunnies to precious Puppies, and even a Blue Stingray or Stegosaurus, you can find just the right furry friend for your child. I received the Wild Furry Friend, 17in Horse in order to facilitate this product feature, and as expected it is just adorable! The Horse is the perfect huggable size, and of course well made. It even came with a birth certificate, and some fun stickers too.

Swaddling For A Happy Baby With Miracle Blanket ~ Review

*I received the product below free for reviewing purposes. As always all opinions are my own. see disclosure.
As Mommy's To Be we are often bombarded with "do this.... don't do that" suggestions from everyone even strangers on what is best for baby. One suggestion that I was given when our daughter was born that I totally agreed with, and had wonderful results trying, was swaddling. When baby rests well swaddled so does everyone else too.

The Miracle Blanket is a specially designed and patented swaddling blanket to keep baby comfy and secure, and is made of 100% cotton. I love how it feels soft but is also not too thick which will be wonderful when the weather finally turns warmer. The Miracle Blanket comes in 16 different designs including the new 100% Bamboo Miracle Blanket. In order to facilitate this product review, I was sent the cotton Blue With Brown Polka Dots Miracle Blanket.

Support and Style With Bella Materna Nursing Bras ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

Since I am planning to nurse our baby due in just a few short weeks, I have been looking for a comfortable and stylish nursing bra this time around. With our first two children, I didn't find a nursing bra that was both comfortable and stylish at all. I never really liked the fit or way they looked under clothes. When I received the opportunity to look over the Sexy Nursing Bra from Bella Materna for our Luck Be A Baby Celebration, I was excited to see how they rated.

Sexy Nursing Bra (Black) Front View
Bella Materna was started by two ladies, Candace and Anne, in 2000 who noticed a need for stylish nursing essentials, when they heard "there is no such thing as a pretty nursing bra". I have to say those were my exact thoughts 11 1/2 years ago when I was shopping for my first nursing bra. They now carry camisoles, lounge wear, sleepwear, transition, and maternity bras besides their nursing bra selection.

Light Up The Night With Crane ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration {Guest Post}

*Tonya from The Kids Did It received this product free in order to facilitate this overview. 

Crane Belly Glo Night Lights -

Are your kids afraid of the dark? 

I’ve been fortunate enough to not have to go through that with my kids. Although my daughter does want her door open, but before we moved I could close it. Even though they aren’t afraid of the dark they still love their nightlights and need them when they wake to go to the bathroom. Belly Glo Night Lights is a neat alternative to your typical plug-in night light.

The Belly Glo night light has a bulb in the middle of the animals’ tummy that you can take out and charge. It will last up to eight hours and you can turn the light on to a soft white light or have it change from blue to red to green which is pretty fun. The kids like to swap out the bulbs on the little lights (even though they are all the same). And they enjoy being able to take them on the go. Since the bulbs come out, they’ve actually had fun using them as bath toys too.

Additional features of the Belly Glo night lights include:
  • Puts light where your child really wants it
  • Turns on automatically when it gets dark
  • Choose soothing white light or shifting blue, red and green colors
  • Runs up to 8 hours per charge
  • Removable Belly Bulb plugs into the wall to recharge
  • Also works like a traditional night light
  • Both pal and bulb included
Purchase the Belly Glo Night Light for $17 at select retail locations!

Travel Safe With A Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

As a Mommy, I am always wondering about my kiddos safety, and with our new little one I know that will continue. Since my son was born over 6 years ago, there has been a lot of changes in car seat safety. The car seat we used with him isn't even considered safe or legal any more! So after carefully checking out a few different companies I was drawn to Combi USA, and their line of car seats based on their high safety features.

For our Luck Be A Baby Celebration, I was given the opportunity to look over a Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat to facilitate this product overview. This infant car seat  has so many safety features for baby, including the 360 degrees of protection for your little one. Whether it's a side, rear or front impact the Shuttle protects with both Side Impact Protection, through the deep walls and absorbing foam, and an Anti-Rebound Bar, which will stabilize the seat in rear and front collisions. Can't be too careful with our precious cargo!

Thank goodness this time around, I received some products to facilitate this product overview from Tommee Tippee that will help keep the mess to a minimum.

Want Your Little Ones To Look Darling? ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

I find myself drawn to classic fashions for our new little guy due very soon, that's how I found My Little Darling. This online boutique has just precious styles from all different designers in one spot to keep you little ones looking just darling! Below you will find my overview of a jumpsuit and shortall that I was sent in order to facilitate my product feature for the Luck Be A Baby Celebration.

My Little Darling carries clothing for boys, girls and baby ranging in sizes from newborn to size 8. Each romper, pajama set, outfit, pair of jeans and more 
has been carefully selected to keep your kiddos looking fabulous, and it shows. They also carry toys, books, plush, and bath toys too. Take a look at these children's clothing styles and sweet toys and books, and I'm sure you will fall in love with them like I did.

The Red and Blue Striped Jumpsuit by Toobydoo in size 6-12 months is just so cute! I love the baby blue and navy stripes with the red and white. Feels patriotic but also just has a classic look to it as well. One of my favorite outfits for both my kids was always jumpsuits especially with snaps in the legs.

How To Keep The Diaper Stink Away With Whisper Diaper Pail ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

If there is one thing I can't stand, it's the lingering smell of dirty diapers in my home! Since I became preggers this time around, I have been looking at and comparing a lot of products that weren't even available when my son was born 6 1/2 years ago. Now after being given the opportunity to look over the Whisper Odor Free Diaper Pail, I have found a wonderful product to keep the stink away!

The Whisper Diaper Pail blocks those stinky smells from diapers by using an odor blocking spray called ODOGard, and few other innovative features. You simply press the convenient button on top of the pail before changing your baby's diaper to release a mist. Then after changing your little one's dirty bum just drop your dirty diaper in through the trap door under the lid, and after closing lid spray again. Viola! No lingering dirty diaper smells.

We already have two children and pets in our home, and I did wonder about the ODOGard sprays safety. No worries since it is tough on those smells, but also a water based spray that is both biodegradable and safe around kids and pets too. Each can of spray will last through about 200 dirty diapers too!

Cuddle Baby With Minky Couture ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

*I received the product below in order to facilitate this product overview. All opinions are my own. see disclosure.
Soft! If I were to use one word to describe a Minky Couture Blanket, that would have to be the one! Minky is an extremely soft fabric that kind of reminds you of fleece but it's much softer and thicker. All of their Minky blankets are made in the USA, and hand sewn just for you.

Minky Couture offers their Minky Blankets in a variety different sizes, unique stylish patterns, and have crib sheets and pillows available too. They will even make a custom blanket just for you!

We adore the vibrant colors and sweet pattern of our infant sized Minky. Even though this blanket will be for our new little guy who will be joining us in April, both of my kiddos have been caught wrapping up in its soft embrace. 

Keep Baby Happy With Products From MAM ~ Luck Be A Baby Celebration

For the first Luck Be A Baby Celebration product feature today I am spotlighting MAM. Below you will find my overview of products that MAM sent to facilitate this post along with some personal opinions. Don't forget to come back March 10th-17th, 2014 for the Pot-O-Gold Baby Giveaway, where you can enter for a chance to WIN $50 in products from MAM along with other great prizes for baby! *Be sure to check out the other product overviews in our Luck Be A Baby Celebration at the bottom of this post too. 

~Since I am planning to breast feed, I have been on the look out for a great bottle that will not cause nipple confusion, and make the times I am not there to feed our son easier on him. Mam's Anti Coli Bottle seems like a great fit. Not only does it have a wide extremely soft silicone nipple, but the Anti Colic bottle will help with tummy issues. I will feel confident using this bottle from MAM that helps to ensure 80% less colic with their vented base, since the base keeps there from being any bubbles or foaming. Having a relaxed and happy feeding time while bonding time with Daddy or another is what I want for our son.
