Nursing in Style

  Comfort & Harmony mombo in Hoppi Haze Nursing Pillow & Infant Positioner - Comfort & Harmony  - Babies"R"Us

      When I was pregnant with my 3 babies the Doctors and Nurses were constantly telling the pros and cons of breastfeeding.  One of the best pros were that the Mothers milk not only provides a healthier milk but it also is easier for the baby to digest.  Besides the medical pros my favorite is the connection or bond that is between a Mother and her baby.  Most Mothers have the same question and that is what if I work?  They will give you alternatives for working Mothers that are still a great plus, it was for me.

     The Mombo nursing pillow can be bought from Toys R Us or Babies R Us, at a really great price and you can purchase different pillow cover themes.  Depending on your style or nursery theme they have everything from cartoon characters to the most sophisticated. To can also Like Comfort & Harmony on Facebook or Follow Comfort & Harmony on Twitter and get more information and deals.

     The Mombo pillows are ergonomlc and make the perfect baby shower gift.  Especially to a new Mommy.  They are comfortable for both baby and Mom rather in the comfort of their home or in a public setting. The mombo nursing pillow allows for the closeness of the baby giving him or her the needed support and comfort needed to nurse.  It is also great for toddlers in travel because of the way it wraps around the baby and keeps them from rolling over on to their stomachs.  My daughter loved hers so much that she still uses hers today and she is almost 5, but she says it is like laying in the arms of Mommy.  The Mombo pillows go from soft2firm and have a vibration mode, both of whicj assist in the relaxtion of the baby and made for comfort!

     Maybe you are not wanting to breastfeed, I can't tell anyone what to do but I can say that the mombo nursing pillow is also goof just for helping you give the baby the support needed for holding, bonding, and spending quality time with.  Because I was only able to nurse for a very short period, I used my pillow for playtime with my infants.  I would lay the baby inside and she could lay there and look at her Mommy, however it is NOT recommended that you place the baby on any pillow and leave unattended or that you prop a bottle.

Garden Inspirations

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

     When you look around while walking through a neighborhood or driving down the road, do you ever notice the landscape and garden layouts of the other peoples yard?  I do, and find so many things I would love to do in my yard.  I also find lots of inspiration from magazines and photos.  With the resources we have to day, you can find all kinds of inspirations from silly, to celebrity styles.  I must say that I enjoy the country homey look much more than I do a complete clean look.  Don't get me wrong, I like for it to be clean but I also enjoy the look of not being afraid I am going to mess something up and I like for it to be fun to look at.  If I had the garden of my dreams I would have an interactive garden, with walk ways, benches, and fun things to look at.  When I think of a perfect garden I am reminded of the Secret Garden, and think how awesome would that be.  A place to go and get away from everything, to read a book, or just relax.

     To get started with your great fun garden projects you first need the right materials to get started.  I am a huge Hen and Bitty plant fan so that is the first step for m is to decide what flower or plant I want to use.  Once you decide what plant you want to use then you can visit the Miracle-Gro Facebook  page or Pinterest page and get some really great ideas on different projects that you and your family will enjoy doing together.  The Gro Project offers many but my favorite for the hen and bittys is the toyrarium.  For this project you will need to gather up your plants (cactus), Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix, small figurines, rocks (color or white) spoon, and a fish bowl or another glass bowl.

     Once you have your material together you need to wash your container and allow it to dry, place your rocks and potting soil in the bottom, only fill about half way up, then mix your soil and rocks together.  This will allow the water to drain and keep your cacti happy and healthy.  Then you will arrange your plants and place your toys around the plants, And now you have a toyrarium that looks great in any room, especially in a child's room!

     Check out this video and see what you come up with.  It is the perfect time to get your hands dirty with Miracle-Gro and make not only your home but your yard beautiful!
