Y’all, this mom gig is hard. Its taxing: emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. So anytime I see a gadget, a whoozit, or a thingamabob that will make my life easier, I need to A. buy two and B. let other people know about it so I can help a sistah out!

 

If you’ve got older kids and wish they would just fix their own breakfasts but are terrified at the thought of them pouring their own milk into a bowl–because, let’s face it, most of it will end up on the floor–grab this handy dandy device!

It’s called “The Magic Tap” and turns any bottle–milk, juice, soda–into a tapped dispenser! Your Littles just press their bowl or cup up to it and faster than you can say, “Put that down!” they’ll have their own breakfast made!

 

Anyone else have a kiddo that likes to squeeze their own toothpaste? Wait, let me rephrase, anyone else hate seeing a sink full of Tom’s toothpaste WASTED? Join the club, girl. I think I might actually invest in this:

The iLifeTech hands-free toothpaste dispenser not only dispenses the correct amount of toothpaste for the wee people in your life, it also comes with a sanitizer able to hold 5 toothbrushes!

 

Anyone else a babywearer? When Huff the Babe was smaller, I loved being able to pop in the Moby Wrap or in my ring sling and do stuff around the house or go shopping while also getting some snuggle-time with my boy. My biggest complaint, though, was needing my purse while at the mall or grocery store and not being able to carry it on my shoulder. Thankfully, TWELVELittle has some ca-yoot fanny packs to help a momma out!

When I was nursing, I didn’t mind using a cover in public, but it was a bummer that I couldn’t see my little one. I liked being able to have that intimate time of eye contact with my baby and Huff the Babe liked to see me. (Please note: if you nurse without a cover in public, go you! I’m personally not comfortable with it but if that’s your choice, you do you, sistah!)  the company Skip Hop has you covered (literally–hey-oh!) with their windowed nursing scarf!

Not only are the covers super cute and have a window to watch baby, but they go ALL. THE. WAY. AROUND. This means there’s no way baby can kick or tug and flash “the girls” for the entire mall to see!  

 

A few years ago, I did a Try It Tuesday about cleaning mold out of bath toys. That made me put a moratorium on bath squirters for my kids. Which kind of stinks, because the little monsters LOVE them! Thankfully, Marcus and Marcus has a better-designed bath toy for mold-paranoid moms like me!

These bath squirters come in different shapes and colors but also detach so they can be cleaned! And bonus! They’re made of silicone and can be washed in the dishwasher! Can I get a hallelujah?!

  1. We had a toothpaste dispenser, because children are messy and not perfect with their fine motor skills, the inside of that jole where the toothbrush receives the perfect amount of toothpaste- yeah, it gets COVERED in toothpaste to the point of drying up and being extra gross so that not a drop of toothpaste comes out. It’s great if you take it down and clean it every single day (but who has time for that?!)
    Then there’s the pump for the milk, while this is a great idea, once the jug gets lighter than the amount of pressure a kid pushes with, it knocks over in the fridge usually causing the kid to drop the bowl of cereal and it all comes crashing to the floor or inside the fridge.
