Pregnancy 2.0 Mommy Party

I had the opportunity of hosting a Mommy Party that was sponsored by Pregnancy 2.0!

I was excited to host this wonderful event and my guests were excited to attend and learn about all the wonderful items.

I am going to list all of the products that I received for the party. I will then give a description of each and what I thought as well as what the guests thought too.

Here is a list of items I received to share at the party:
* Spry Gum
* KID'S Xclear Saline Nasal Spray with Xylitol
* KID'S Spry Tooth Gel
* Rashti & Rashti Snuggle Buddy
* Baby Plus PreNatal Educational System

First up is Spearmint Xylitol Gum. I received enough to send each guest home with one pack.

* Sugarfree
* May reduce the risk of tooth decay
* Sweetened with 100% All-Natural Xylitol

Spry - Improving Oral Health
Clinical studies have shown that incorporating 8 to 10 grams of xylitol, into your daily routine may reduce the risk of tooth decay and improve overall oral health.

I was excited to share this product with my guests. First off the Spearmint is a great flavor and even my kids like it. My guest even tried and said they loved the flavor too and it wasn't to over-powering like some brands are.

I explained to them about the benefits of the gum and they were shocked. Most of their kids like mine like to chew gum. I try to limit it as much as possible due to I don't want it to hurt their teeth. I certaintly don't have to worry about it with this product. The moms attending the party said they felt more comfortable with their kids chewing this gum too.

It was a big hit!!!

2nd thing I introduced was the Kid's Xlear® Nasal Spray

The Xlear Nasal Spray line contains xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. Using xylitol nasal spray allows us to have a hyper-osmotic solution which helps pull moisture toward it. This action keeps the nasal passages and sinuses moist and clean for a much longer time than saline alone. Xylitol is the ingredient that sets our nasal spray apart from all of the other nasal sprays on the market.

Being a mommy to 3 my pediatrician always recommends that I use a nasal spray. Especially when my little ones catch a cold. It works great to help to clear out their nasal passages and makes it much easier for them to breath. Like with this product I was excited to try it because of the ingredients it has and to share with the guests. Just happens that my baby girl caught a cold during this time so it was a great way to try it out. I was surprised on how it seemed to open her nasal passages and allow her to breath much smoother. It also seemed like it worked a little faster than the other brand that I use.

I explained the product to my guests and told them about my experience with it. They were all excited to try it with their little ones. They each were sent home with a box of it. Worked out to be a great time with the cooler weather moving in and you know what that means. Cold season too!!

The 3rd item I introduced was Infant Tooth Gel with pacifier.

Delicious all-natural gel for application on the gums and teeth of infants and toddlers. Kids love the natural xylitol-sweet taste.

This is a wonderful product and comes with a pacifer that you can place the gel in that administers it to the child. My baby girl is 11 months old and is teething. She has 2 teeth and just had 2 teeth break through. We are big good oral hygeine with her to ensure healthy teeth as were we with our older 2. She loves the taste. She doesn't use binkys so we put it on her soft bristle brush and administer it that way to cleanse her teeth and gums. She absolutely loves it!!

I highly recommend the pacifier though. I wish I would of had it with my older 2. My oldest daughter always gave me trouble brushing hers but loved the pacifier. I think it would have helped so much with her.

My guests were very excited to try it and share with their friends. They had never heard of putting it in a pacifer like that. Some said they had trouble cleaning their babies mouths too.

The fourth item I shared was Baby Starters® Snuggle Buddy®

This adorable friend is the ideal companion for a new baby. Our Snuggle Buddy doubles as a security blanket and a toy. It’s both interactive and comforting with its fun monkey theme, luxurious blanket with satin trim, and rattle feature. Moms and babies find them fun, endearing and even addictive. Babies have been known to become very attached to their first best friends. Other colors and coordinating products are available under the Baby Starters brand at retail stores nationwide.

Product Features:

* Security blanket with satin trim promotes tactile development and is soothing to baby.

* Plush character is a comforting friend for baby.

* Rattle feature adds sound stimulation and a play element.

* Additional color and characters for both boys and girls are available.

My daughter absolutely loved her little snuggle buddy. It is so soft and cuddly. She carries it around everywhere with her. She also loves to shake it so she can hear the rattling sound that it makes. This is the perfect little blankie that she can easily take to bed and cuddle up with. It is also the perfect size to take out and about with us too.

The moms loved the Snuggle Buddies and said that this is something so easy to pack away in the diaper bag. They said that their kids loved little blankies like this. They loved the bright colors and the softness of the materials. Many said it would make a great gift for expecting moms too.

The moms attending the party had never heard of this product and were very excited to learn more about it. Many had older kids and wish they would have had this too, when they were pregnant. The one mom was very excited to try it out and absolutely loved it. I surprised her by letting her take it home and keep it. She is excited to use it on a regular basis as she still has a ways to go with her pregnancy. Since the party she told me she uses it on a regualr basis and loves it!!

I used another brand in the past and hated it. I had the hardest time getting the baby in and out of it and it just was not comfortable for me or my baby.

I have to say the Britax carrier is top of the line. It is the most comfortable thing to wear and my baby loves to be in it. The straps are very padded and adjustable. I have the easiest time getting her in and out as before I always needed help. I also don't feel a strain on my back either while carrying her. She is almost 26 pounds so she is quite the lug to carry around. I use to always have the sorest shoulders and back after carrying her. Not anymore.

I had a few of the mommies try it out too. They commented on how comfortable it was to wear and it didn't hurt their back or shoulders while carrying the baby. They also complained about other brands in not being comfortable and diffucult to use. They said every aspect of this carrier was easy to use etc.

First off this is the easiest base to place in a car. I placed it on the seat in the middle row of our SUV. It has a gauge on the side to help you level it out and an adjustable base too to help with this. I got it level in about 2 seconds. Then it has to latch connectors that lock onto the hooks located on the seats of your car. They are the easiest things to attach. You just attach them on and they grip right to it and very snuggly. All the other car seats we have used in the past were always loose on connected to the brackets of the car. This one definately is not. They are also easy to remove with the push of a button. You can also attach the seat belt through the base for extra safety in which we do.

It is the most comfortable carseat with a removed pillow. I love the 5 point harness. It keeps my daughter snuggly in place but she is still comfortable. They straps are easy to attach and to un-buckle too. I can do it with one hand. The material is also very easy to wipe down to clean as well. I also love the side impact protection. This is always something I look for in any carseat and was very happy to see that this product had it. Can never be to safe with your little ones.

The handle is very comfortable to carry on my arm. Most other always hurt my arm and this one definately does not. We also love the color. We have a girl but we love the red. Would would great for a boy or girl.

The moms at the party loved it too and all the features that I showed them. They said they had never seen clamps that attach to the car like that. That was a big selling part at the party!!!

Child Seat

This easily attaches to the stroller that I reviewed also. You just attach the 2 pieces that are provided with the stroller and the carseat snaps right in place. The pieces are easy to attach just buy pressing them down and push a button on each to remove them. To remove the carseat you just push up on 2 buttons on either side of the carseat to remove it from the brackets.

Now for the stroller. It is called the B-Agile Stroller

Here are features of the stroller:

One-Hand, Quick Fold with automatic chassis lock

I absolutely loved this stroller as did my guests. I went over all of the features and they were left with their mouths down on the floor...LOL

This is the top line of strollers. First off we love the color red once again and matched the carseat perfect.

It is absolutely the easiest stroller to push. I can literally do it with 1 hand. I even had one of my older, heavier kids get in it to try pushing it with them and it was still just as easy. It is also very easy to turn and can be down in a tight radius. We took it with us on a trip to Disney and you can imagine all the people there. It was the easest thing to get through all the parks. We also got a ton of looks and people asking us what brand it was. We couldn't believe it!!

It has a wonderfull 5 point harness to ensure the baby is securely fastened. I love how it reclines all the way down. My baby girl slept comfortably at the parks and was completely shaded from the sun too. It has an extra big canopy that comes over the front to block the sun. I have never seen a shade this big on a stroller. Definately an A+ on that feature. It has a strap on the back to make the seat go up and down and very easy to operate. Just took me a second to do.

It has a spacious basket on the bottom for storage too as well has a bag that attaches to the bag that can be removed. The bag is very roomy and I stored alot of stuff in it while at the parks. The only thing I did miss is that it does not have a cup holder. I was able to find one at a local store that I was able to attach to the handle. The only thing I would add/change to this stroller would be to add a cup holder.

It is also the easiest stroller ever to fold and place in a car. You just push a button on the side and pull up on a handle on the seat of the stroller. The whole stroller collapses down in the blink of an eye and it is very light to lift. I can lift it with one hand while holding my baby in my other arm. I have never seen a stroller so easy to collapse and lightweight.

This was defiantely a big hit with my family and all of the mommys at my party.
