Sometimes–okay, ALL THE TIME–being a mom can make you frazzled, harried, and pretty much scatterbrained. Thankfully, there are some awesome products out there to help you with any problem a mom could think of!

 

Tired of eating a soggy bowl of cereal because you poured your breakfast, only to have to stop everything to search for a blankie, a sock, or a pacifier? Those days are over, sistah thanks to the Obol!

The Obol has separate compartments for the cereal and milk, as well as a built in grip so you can eat while also nagging the kids to get dressed and brush their teeth without fear of dropping your breakfast!

 

Tired of your kids taking FOR-EV-ER to clean up their toys? Just get one of these awesome bags from Swoop and clean up is over quickly!

The mini bags would also be great for you too, Mom! You could store makeup, snacks, pretty much anything! Just drop it on the opened bag and Swoop! its picked up! (See what I did there?)

 

If you have managed to keep your brood flu-free this season, I salute you. Giving them medicine is awful and taking their temperate is tough when they’re wrestling to get our of your grasp! Thankfully, there’s a new way to take your kids’ temp!

These stick-on, fever indicating bugs monitor your kiddos’ temperature for up to 48 hours. This means you can give them a bug, and you can tell with a quick look whether or not your wee one is feverish! For more info, click here!

 

Seriously, y’all, this flu season has been the worst. I’ve been using Purell wipes on everything anywhere we go. Huff the Babe is still using a pacifier, and I worry about all the germs that can hop onto it while we’re out and about. I think I need to invest in one of these!

When your baby-love drops this pacifier, the safety clip closes over it so the pacifier can be kept clean and won’t touch the floor! AH-MAY-ZING!

 

Parenting is tough. We all need a break now and then (speaking of, have you seen this hilarious video making the rounds on Facebook? Careful it features NSFW language!) and personally, I like to decompress with a nice, hot bubble bath and Netflix. I’m so glad I bought one of these!

This bath caddy is AWESOME! There’s a place for my wine glass, I can watch Netflix on the iPad, and I can put some chocolates on it so I can truly indulge! I think all Mommas need one of these!

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!

Skip-Hop-Windowed-Nursing-Cover

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!

Marcus-Marcus-Bath-Squirt-Toys

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?!
