bornwildamber

Born Wild Amber Necklace – We are huge fans of amber teething necklaces, so I was excited to get another one for my toddler to wear.  If you’re a mom, you know how awful teething can be, especially molars.  My toddler has gotten through his molars pretty smoothly thanks to his amber necklaces.

What exactly IS an amber necklace?  Amber is a natural substance that has succinic acid in it which, when warmed by your skin, is absorbed and becomes a natural pain reliever, almost like a topical Tylenol.  It’s pretty neat!!  The amber is authentic and you can easily test the beads yourself.  *Please do not leave your child unattended with an amber (or any kind of beaded) necklace!*  That said, my son’s necklace is never removed, but we co-sleep!

masterclasssketchbook

Masterclass Sketchbook – I got to test out the lovely sketchbook from Masterclass Art Supply and I am very pleased with the quality.  The 9″x12″ hardcover book is filled with 100 pages of high quality, fine-textured paper.  It is a dream to use with any dry media of your choice.  The paper has not bled or become damaged when pencil is erased.  It’s very sturdy and looks very nice!  

I prefer to use colored pencils and pastels in the sketchbook.  I really appreciate how the book can be opened flat so you have an easier to work with canvas.  This is really a great sketchbook and I am looking forward to filling it with a lot of beautiful art!

Snugg Organic Pillow – My little ones were the lucky ones that got to try this AMAZING pillow from Snugg.  This is seriously the BEST toddler pillow I have ever seen.  It it so soft and squishy.  I have never felt anything like it!  It’s a nice, generous size rather than being teeny tiny.  It is filled with chemical-free shredded latex that conforms to your head instead of letting you just sink to the mattress.  

The cover is made of a thick, super soft material that is 60% organic cotton and 40% polyester and also machine washable.  The pillow is hypoallergenic so it is perfect for children with allergies or asthma.  It keeps away all of the dust mites that cause respiratory issues.  I need one that is MY size!!
