Maty’s Healthy Baby Products and Giveaway

by Pennie on October 19, 2014

matyslogo

All Natural Health Products Maty’s Healthy Products are made from ingredients you know and recognize empowering you with a safe and natural alternative so you gain better health and healing.
baby_rub

Our All Natural Baby Chest Rub provides safe, effective relief from coughs and congestion while strengthening their little immune systems. With soothing notes of lavender and chamomile, it helps relax your baby for a peaceful nights’ sleep. $7.99

baby_ointment

Babies are naturally so cuddly and soft, why would you want to put anything harsh on their delicate skin?

Maty’s All Natural Baby Ointment is made with the purest ingredients that closely resemble the natural oils of your babies’ skin.  It promotes healing  without a messy build up.  It nourishes and protects their bottoms by creating a moisture barrier without that heavy greasy feel.  $7.99 – $11.99

For more information visit MatysHealthyProducts.com also find them on Facebook, and Twitter

Nicole’s take:  I am all about products that help my babies! My triplets are now 9 months old and are pretty healthy.  They do, however, have vulnerable lungs from being born 9 weeks early.  So it’s important that we avoid germs and crowds.  They have had mild colds a few times and we turned to Maty’s products.  The baby chest rub and baby ointment really seemed to help them with the congestion! There isn’t much you can do medically for a baby with a cold and it’s all about keeping them comfortable! Maty’s helps with that!

Enter the Giveaway!

Ingenuity ConvertMe Swing 2 Seat Avondale

by Pennie on October 18, 2014

ingenuitylogo

Ingenuity™ ConvertMe Swing-2-Seat™ is a remarkable swing that converts to a vibrating seat with our Easylock™ system. The SlimFold™ design folds flat for easy storage or travel so that you and baby can travel with ease.  Baby will enjoy 8 soothing melodies and 3 nature sounds, plus 5 swing speeds, each with automatic timer settings of 30, 45, and 60 minutes.

ConvertMeSwing2Seat

The pivoting toy bar features 1 plush toy and 2 additional slots for attaching more hanging toys to keep baby’s view new and engaging. WhisperQuiet™ operation helps baby swing in virtual silence and our patented Hybridrive™ technology makes batteries last up to 3 times longer than traditional swings and bouncers. The seat pad and plush head support are machine-washable and keep baby cozy and comfortably supported.

2014-10-11 18.17.04

FEATURES:
• Converts from swing to vibrating seat with Easylock™
• SlimFold™ design folds flat for easy storage or travel
• Batteries last up to 3 times longer with Hybridrive™ technology

• 8 melodies and 3 nature sounds

For more information visit Ingenuity™ ConvertMe Swing-2-Seat™; also follow them on Facebook & Twitter.

Nicole’s take: We have several baby products made by Ingenuity and I am just so impressed with the brand. The items are durable and well made and many of them serve multiple purposes which I love. Having 3 babies means that space is at a total premium so products that do double (or triple!) duty are perfect for us! For instance this ConvertMe Swing 2 Seat in Avondale pattern goes from swing to seat! It is super portable and folds right up. We love the auto shut off feature after 60 minutes. Our babies often nap in the swing and this way they aren’t swinging for hours! These are perfect for travel and our babies are super comfortable in it!

Garden Lites Introduces “Bakes”

by Pennie on October 16, 2014

gardenliteslogo

Looking for a healthy lunch and/or dinner option but short on time? Try new Garden Lites “Bakes” packed full of healthy ingredients. They are delicious and ready in just minutes.

Garden Lites, The Delicious Vegetable Company®, continues to innovate the frozen food aisle with the debut of Garden Lites Bakes.  The first flavor to debut as part of the Garden Lites Bakes Line is Cheddar Broccoli Bake.

GL_ChedBrocBake-2As with other products by Garden Lites, the first and main ingredient in the new Bakes is always vegetables. They are always gluten-free, vegetarian, low in calories, high in fiber and rich in whole grains. Cheddar Broccoli Bake is a delicious and nutritious dish chock full of healthy broccoli, brown rice, select spices and topped off with cheddar cheese.  They can be found in the freezer section of most food stores.

Bakes will have a richer flavor profile than original Garden Lites Soufflés while still remaining low calorie at 250 calories or less. Other flavor introductions are planned as the demand for the product increases.  Garden Lites Bakesin single serve packaging, have an SRP of $3.99.  They can be found in the frozen section of stores nationwide.

For more information on Garden Lites products, and a full list of retailers,  visit http://www.gardenlites.com/ and be sure to “Like” on Facebook and Follow on Twitter!

Nicole’s take:  I love the vegetarian options that Garden Lites makes and frequently enjoy their souffles as a side dish or a main meal with a salad! These new “bakes” are a great addition to their product line! The cheddar broccoli bake is delicious! I love the combination of cheddar cheese and broccoli and this is a great healthy choice!
