Ubbi Diaper Pail

by Sarah on 6. March 2014 in Our Favorites

Stinky diapers look out!  We have found the ultimate solution to diaper disposal!  Honestly, we just have to share with you the awesome product that is the Ubbi Diaper Pail!


 

This diaper pail isn’t like the plastic ones out there… this one is made out of powder coated steel, which doesn’t absorb nasty odors like plastic!  We love the simple design and the amazing color options, making it easy to coordinate with any nursery.  You can buy this puppy for an awesome price,  and one of our favorite parts is that it doesn’t require a special bag…any tall kitchen trash bag will do!

 

 

Look anywhere…this fantastic Ubbi product has great reviews all around…and we couldn’t agree more!

Celebrating the Ride

by Sarah on 7. January 2014 in Our Ideas | Parenting

 

Do you ever find yourself scrolling through your Instagram feed or eye-rolling through mommy blogs thinking, “Whose life is that perfect all the time?” “What kids look that flawlessly put together every day?” “Who makes delicious cookies with their children WHILE teaching them to read WHILE also looking perfect?”

We’ve certainly been there a time or two.

With all of the “perfection” out there being captured and shared among parents, it can certainly be tough not to compare them to our own life’s moments that are less than picture-perfect.   Being a parent is tough work, and ironically it is equally easy to criticize and get down on ourselves.  This is exactly why we are determined to make 2014 a year of embracing our reality!

It’s time to get real and accept that perfection isn’t really an option… even if others trick us into thinking they’ve attained it.  Let’s move past the parental terms of perfection and failure, and celebrate the ups and downs of the ride.  Although it’s hard to remember sometimes, this ride of raising little ones is not going to last forever. 

Being a parent is not always a cakewalk… but, let’s allow ourselves to have those imperfect moments and then let them go.  As parents, we’re all on this journey together... and it’s important to remember that no one person has got it all figured out.  It’s about celebrating our successes and getting back in that saddle when our ride gets a bit bumpy.

It is our goal and our hope for all of you in this new year that we can collectively  embrace and enjoy the ride of parenthood—albeit a crazy one—and tuck our babies in at night knowing that we’re all in perfectly imperfect company.  That’s a reality we’re excited to accept!

Rock on parents!  And, Happy New Year!

Oral Care and Baby: MAM

by Sarah on 17. September 2013 in Good to Know | Our Favorites
 
 
Did you know that at the time of birth, the crowns of your baby’s teeth are already finished?  With that said, proper oral care for baby begins before the first tooth even erupts, and only becomes more and more important with each tooth that pops up! It’s important to know that establishing an oral care routine early on helps set the stage for a lifetime of good dental hygiene!
 
Check out these frequently asked questions when it comes to taking care of baby’s teeth.
 
 
:: When to schedule baby’s first visit to the dentist?
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), babies should complete their first visit to the dentist by age one.  In fact, all babies should see a pediatric dentist once their first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age.  At the first visit, dentists check for signs of early tooth decay and review proper routines and behaviors with parents, such as not letting baby fall asleep with a bottle of milk or drinking juice from a cup instead of a bottle.
 
:: How to clean the inside of baby’s mouth? 
Contrary to popular belief, proper oral care for baby should begin before the first tooth appears.  The AAPD suggests parents gently wipe the inside of baby’s mouth and gums with a clean, soft cloth regularly to remove germs and leftover milk.
 
:: When to start using a toothbrush with baby? 
As soon as teeth appear, start brushing two times a day with an age-appropriate toothbrush to gently remove plaque and bacteria.  Look for brushes designed just for babies that have rounded heads and super-soft bristles. 
 
:: When to start using toothpaste with baby?
When children reach the age of two, parents can use a pea-size amount of children’s toothpaste.  Look for toothbrushes that feature indicator bristles to help determine the correct amount of toothpaste for little ones and use a toothbrush that allows mom and baby to hold the handle together for guided brushing.  (The AAPD also recommends a smear of fluoride toothpaste for children under two who are at-risk for tooth decay.  Health care professionals and pediatric dentists can help parents determine if baby is at-risk.)
 
:: Why dentists prefer pacifiers over thumbs for self-soothing? 
Babies are born with a natural sucking reflex.  The AAPD recommends pacifier use over thumb-sucking for additional sucking, as a pacifier habit is easier to break at an earlier age. While most children self-wean, the AAPD recommends discouraging pacifier use after age three if necessary.  The earlier a sucking habit is stopped, the less likely the habit will lead to tooth and jaw irregularities.  Use pacifiers with an orthodontically correct nipple design that allows baby to safely suck while maintaining proper jaw and tooth alignment.
 
 

 

 
We love the products that MAM has to offer to help foster good oral hygiene from the start.  Their mission is to combine the best in technological innovation, medically sound function and contemporary design to help give babies the best start in life.  Developed with dentists, the smart MAM Oral Care products ensure that babies get used to regular oral hygiene step by step. Trendy colors and shapes arouse baby's interest and encourage him to clean his teeth.

About Oilo

Though not an actual word, Oilo’s roots are steeped in the Hawaiian words, “lio” (small sprout) and “ho’oilo” (the cool, rainy season).

Every autumn, the Hawaiian sun weakens and tropical trade winds usher in magnificent storms that blanket the islands in a cool, cleansing rain. It’s not beach weather. It’s curl up on the sofa with a good book weather. It’s wrap your baby up tight and rock her to sleep in the moonlight weather. Mostly, it’s about sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying the serenity of life.

That is why Oilo exists. We’re about turning your nursery into the most comfortable, clean, and carefree sanctuary in your home. Because a more enjoyable nursery, means a more constant and enduring bond between you and your baby — or, as we like to say, your little sprout.
