Proud parent- twice: Medela Calming Bottle

Proud to be a Resident Mom:  

Reviewed: Medela Calming Bottle

The Review:

Introducing Calma®I like the size of the calming bottle itself. It is not too small or too big as to not seem overwhelming for a little one who is use to feeding from breast. The nipple of the bottle did resemble the size of my breast nipple personally when erected for feeding my daughter. It did feel a little complex to me looking at how the bottle works and I did not feel comfortable that I put the bottle back together after taking it apart. It’s designed is a little more complex than your usual bottle for the benefits of mimicking the breast flow. I did find it easy for the bottle part to fit my breastpump  to pump straight into the bottle.  I tried it with my son and he at first did not take it but after two tries, he started to suck for it so it was very easy for me as a transition from breast. I expected him to be gassy but he was not after the bottle use.

Pros: This bottle does not leak and only allow flow when the baby is actually using it.

Cons: It is expensive for one bottle and assembly at first may be a little awkward

Rating: A-

It is back to school time and reading is back in. I recently found some great new hardback and paperback books for .02 cents at my local shopping center. Books on audio are also awesome. Every parent knows that kids’ brains are like sponges, soaking up drops of information and words (even the four-letter ones we don’t always want them to). But did you know that 85 percent of what we learn, we learn by listening? According to the Audio Publishers Association, listening increases reading accuracy by 52 percent, and combining print and audio increases memory 40 percent over print alone. is making it easier (and more fun!) for kids to expand their vocabularies, increase reading speed, improve fluency, and teach pronunciation. No matter what genre your child gravitates towards, has lots of exciting kids content that can be enjoyed while waiting for appointments, before bedtime, and during car rides (the age-old question “Are we there yet?” will become a thing …

I was not compensated for this post. I received the products from winning a public giveaway. All opinions are my own.

Last week I received a congratulations email. I had not been entering giveaways in quite some time with school, home, and work duties taking up a lot of my time. The email notified me that my name was selected as a 'Be SUN SMART with GRATEFULBODY' Giveaway WINNER! The giveaway was hosted by The All Natural Beauty Website.

I received 4 great products. The GRATEFUL BODY products I was awarded were the Seven Powers serum, Sunny Facial toner, Nourish Moisturizer and Essential Cleanser. I am so blessed. Shipping was very fast.

I am quite impressed with the quality of the products. I am not used to a cleanser without suds but the cleaner did leave my face feeling refreshed and clean. The toner i…
