Amber Teething Necklaces/Bracelets

        For the past 2 years I have had requests by our loyal customer for Amber Teething Necklaces.  To be honest I actually got a sample from a manufacture that wanted me to blog about it.  Now because I am a different type of mommyblogger...I didn't do it.  We didn't carry the products at that time and I didn't have a baby to use it on and honestly I was scared of the choking hazard.  Well I am here to say I was both wrong and uneducated. 
     At this past ABC show I spent some time with a sweet and wonderful mamma who also imports these amazing necklaces and bracelets.  She explained to me the benefits of wearing Amber both for babies and adults.  I posted a picture on our facebook page while I was still at market and had a huge response from our followers.  So I took the hint and placed the order.  This mamma is so good...those necklaces and bracelets literally beat me home from market. 
    Since then we have had so many of you comment on what a great product it is.  These necklaces are made to be warn next to the skin.  They are not to be chewed on and at night you can actually wrap the necklace around baby's ankle and place them in footie pj's to keep the amber's medicinal qualities in their system while they sleep.  I have attached to pictures of her brochures so that you can read all of her wonderful knowledge for yourself.  As always we would GREATLY appreciate your business.  I stand corrected.  Amber Teething Jewelry is a life saver according to our mamma's.

Naut Bag

So I have a new favorite.....Do I say that too much?  Well even if I do, I always truly mean it and this is no exception.  So here's the story behind my new favorite.  A few months ago I had a phone call from a nice woman asking me if she could come and show me a new diaper bag.  I did everything but bar the door to keep these ladies from coming to see me.  I told them my Open to Buy was closed...that I wasn't really leave samples at my OKC store.  (I know I sound terrible but I honestly get some many people with wonderful products I just can't buy them all....)
 So the day finally arrives and 2 wonderfully inventive women present me with the Naut Bag.  I was very skeptical at the beginning of the presentation.  I asked every hard question I could think of and there was a great answer to them all.  This is the ultimate day trip diaper bag. 
First and doesn't look like a diaper bag.  It looks like a very fashion forward runway bag.  The fabrics are high end and make you feel beautiful. 
2nd this is a messenger style bag.  It hangs lower on your body and can be fit to all body shapes by adjusting the knot at the top.  This style of bag totally frees up mommy's hands.  Most messenger bags are so masculine but not the Naut bag...this is an accessory with functionality. 
3rd. Functionality.  The liner inside does not go all the way to the point of the bag so you wont loose any of your important goodies to the abyss of the bottom of your bag.  There are 5 elasticized pockets on the inside for great organization:  2 wide for diapers and wipes, and 3 more narrow for sunglasses, bottles, cell phones, etc.  And there is a great secret pocket in the strap of the bag up closer to the shoulder for easy, quick access to your keys, phone, or paci. 
4th. You can dry clean this bad boy....How many diaper bags can you actually do that with....They showed me a dirty bag and then one that had been dry cleaned and the clean up wonderful. 

Before our meeting was over not only had I purchased these bags for the store but I had bought one of the samples they brought for myself.  I LOVE IT.  I never feel like my purse is in my way.  When I grocery shop now I don't even put my bag in the cart.  My Naut Bag is so comfortable and cute I don't hardly even remember I have it on.  Come and check one out for yourself. 
You will be so glad you did. 
Thanks Naut Girls!!!
We currently carry this bag only in our Wichita Falls store but are happy to send it to either of our other 2 locations.

Windex or Waterblocker

I know I have blogged about this before but after yesterday I decided it was time to remind you guys what a miracle cream this is. 
The 1st time I blogged about Water Blocker I referred to it like Windex from my Big Fat Greek Wedding.  Seriously this stuff will cure anything. 

So back to our house yesterday.  Ms. E was hanging out with her grandmother and cousins.  They made crescent rolls (one of her favorites)  She went to reach for one and burned her finger on the cookie sheet...OUCH!!!  She immediately began crying and running water over it.  When she had calmed down she went back to grab a roll and darn if she didn't lay her arm down on that same cookie sheet...yes yes...I am sure she has learned her lesson but double OUCH!!! 
My mom put the Water Blocker cream on her and it did offer significant relief but it still hurt.  I met them for lunch and while Ms. E was being brave I could tell she was in alot of pain.  That afternoon my mom continued to apply Water Block every couple of hours...for a total of 4 applications. 

Well Guess we have NO blisters and NO pain.  There is still a big red mark but her burns don't hurt at ALL!!!!  This is absolutely miracle cream. 

We keep it handy also for fire ant bites, mosquito bites, diaper rash, sun burns...basically everything.  Even when my kids or my nieces complain of something that really shouldn't be a big deal you can totally appease them by putting a little Water Block on it. 

Here is what Water Blocker has to say about their product.

If you would like to purchase Water Blocker for your family click purchase below

Naturally, Handmade with Beeswax. SAFE for all ages.
Waterblocker is a hand-made, waterproof, natural beeswax skin cream for the whole body. It stops dry, cracked hands by protecting the natural oil in the skin from being removed by constant washing or by other antagonists such as paper, cardboard and fabrics. Great for rough, cracked heals, runners use to prevent blistering and hot spots. Use on face as a moisturizer and to preserve the natural oil in your face. Long lasting - one application lasts most users all day!! It is safe for children - use on diaper rash and to prevent rash from occurring. Use as a safe, natural deodorant for underarm and feet. Bacteria that cause odor can't grow in beeswax!! It also stops itch, burn and sting. Use on insect bites, poison ivy, rashes, burns, etc. to stop the itch, burn and sting. Use on skin conditions that exhibit itch, burn or sting or are dry and scaly or red. Use on pet's hot spots to stop itching and scratching and promote rapid healing!! No scent, non-greasy, long lasting.
Especially effective for anyone who must wash hands many times each day or who must handle materials which dry out the skin such as fabric, paper, cardboard, gardening dirt or cold, dry winter weather. Waterblocker prevents the loss of oil from the skin regardless of what the skin is exposed to and thus prevents the damage which would normally occur under such conditions. Skin that is already damaged will heal quickly and the damage will NOT return with regular use of Waterblocker.
If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from chronic dry skin problems, you have probably tried dozens of remedies, and they all failed to help your problem! For that reason, Honey Guy personally guarantees you will be satisfied with Waterblocker or he will refund the entire amount you paid including shipping and he will send you the postage to return the unused portion of your order! That is how sure Honey Guy is that Waterblocker will work for you!!
So don't be discouraged. Let Mother Nature's marvelous honey bee have a shot at solving your problem. With the unconditional Honey Guy guarantee, you've got nothing to lose! Even the ancient Egyptians made beeswax skin cream over 4,000 years ago. It could have been Cleopatra's secret to keeping her face and skin looking young and bee-autiful! Nothing is more time-tested and proven than natural beeswax skin cream - and Honey Guy puts more beeswax in his products than any other manufacturer! The other ingredients are distilled water, food-grade mineral oil and the natural mineral, Borax as the binder which turns the mixture into a cream. A fourth grader can read and understand the label! Not many other products can say that.
Simple, Safe, Effective - Waterblocker Skin Cream

I'm Melting

I Have blogged before about our PackIt Lunch Boxes. How they keep lunches refrigerator cold for up to 10 hours. I gave you all the stats on how our kids lunches are kept at unsafe temperatures when they are at school.

Well now it is time for CAMPS!!! YIPEE!!! My 8 year old daughter Ms E. loves going to camp. So far we have 4 camps planned. All of them require her to bring a lunch and 2 are outside camps. I know that she will be taking her PackIt each day.

But what about me!!! Well we just got them and I am IN LOVE!!! We have the Social Cooler...this is what we are taking to the beach this year. I can put our CapriSuns and Sodas in here and they will stay cold while we play. I won't have to DRAG that huge ice filled BEAST of a cooler down to the beach...or have any of my cooler bags...leak all over us. I AM SO PUMPED!!! This will also be perfect for picnics and trips to the park.

Social Cooler Dimensions: 12” x 13” x 5” (12” x 5” x 2.5” folded)

We also have the Shop Cooler. This is what I desperately needed last summer when I was grocery amount of "stay cool" bags were going to get me home with a carton of ice cream or Popsicles...I mean seriously every time I tried, I got home with ice cream soup and a fruity array of sicky mess...SO SAD!!! But this year I have a Shop Cooler...I already know that this guy works. We have used him for lunches for a year now. So here I come Frozen Foods Aisle...we will have yummy treats for the freezer this summer!!!

Shop Cooler Dimensions: 12.5” x 14.5” x 7.5” (6.5” x 6.5” x 3” folded)

Great Oppoutunity from Munire

This sale is availble at all 3 StorkLand Locations!!!

Great Blog about selecting a Mattress

I always tell my mommies that the 2 most important purchases that they can make for their new baby are their car seat and their crib mattress.  The car seat is their safety and the mattress is their development. 

Babies are made of goo...if not how could the be born...I know you mama's hear me!!!  Those bones solidify and harden as they grow and mature.  A firm foam mattress is crucial to this process.  By providing our babies with a good firm foam mattress we are helping to prevent the same back, neck, and knee problems we all have today.  Good foam mattress are not cost prohibitive in anyway..just a REALLY important purchase and decision. 

Read this is GREAT!!! 

What you need to know before buying a mattress

Baby Blamtastic-WOW

You have no idea how excited I am to finally be writing this blog. I ordered Baby Blamtasitc Booty Balm back at the beginning of October. I totally fell in love with this stuff at market. I must tell you the entire story on how I came to this love affair.

My mom and I were shopping the ABC kids expo when we came upon this cute ladies pushing their diaper cream stick. Well immediately I was intrigued. You see I HATE diaper cream...I think it is disgusting...but a necessary evil. Whenever my kiddo's were in need and daddy was home it was his job because it totally GROSSED me out. I hated having that stuff under my nails and then when you go to wash it off...well it is made to be water resistant so it was a booger to get rid of. So a stick, WOW!!! That is totally one of those "why didn't I think of that" products.

Before I would right an order though I asked the ladies if I could test it out on my hand. The agreed of course and I spent the next hour of market walking around with a BIG WHITE STRIP of diaper cream on my hand. Needless to say I didn't do a lot have hand shaking. I made my way back to their booth and we poured water on my hand to see just how good it worked...I was totally impressed. The booty cream had begun to sink into my skin but there was still a great water barrior. I am SOLD!!!! We need this stuff.

Baby Blamtasitc is also an all natural botanical blend in a mess free stick. So you can feel good about what you are putting on your precious baby.

I know you guys are going to love this just as much as I do!!!

Upsie Belly by Belly Bandit

On a daily basis we see mommy's come into our stores struggling to breath and walk. They are terribly uncomfortable and just down right miserable. Well Belly Bandit is debuting a brand-new product designed to help pregnant women defy the laws of gravity: Upsie Belly™. The most innovative pregnancy support band available, Upsie Belly™ belly support has been created to keep you up on your feet when your baby bump weighs you down.

This great support belt helps evenly distribute pregnancy weight by taking the pressure off your back, hips and legs, and also increases your range of motion, providing comfort and relief as your baby bump grows.

As the most multi-tasking support band on the market, Upsie Belly™ has also been engineered to help alleviate pregnancy-related backaches and muscle soreness. It comes with an optional hot/cold pack that can be conveniently slipped into a 10-inch back pocket for “on-the-spot” soothing, and is designed with extra-tall back support to promote healthy posture.

The Upsie Belly takes the bulk and complication out of traditional multi-piece support bands, the one-piece Upsie Belly™ is absolutely effortless—right down to the “anti-dig” closure designed to eradicate digging and discomfort.

It is created in Belly Bandit’s® signature SecureStretch™ elastic fabric. The Upsie Belly™ molds to your body with just the right amount of tension at every stage of your bump—and even holds the belly in place to help reduce stretch marks.

To reduce irritation, Upsie Belly™ is covered entirely in soft and supple Bamboo, which offers natural moisture-wicking, anti-fungal, anti-microbial and hypo-allergenic benefits for sensitive, delicate skin.Upsie Belly™ is available in three sizes, S, M and L, with 13-inches of adjustability.

If you are experienceing even the slightest bit of discomfort the Upsie Belly will really change your pregnancy.

Feeling Pretty is Priceless-Baby Be Mine

I think feeling pretty is just about priceless. I know when I was in the hospital I couln't wait to get out of that frumpy hospital gown...UGLY/See Threw/Scratchy I just didn't like it. It wasn't mine. So when I saw these great birthing gowns, well I fell in LOVE!!!

You can choose to wear this threw delivery...when God and everyone is stopping threw your room or after you deliver and when you go home. This gown is perfect. It allows the nurses the access they need to take care of you without you having to get completely undressed. (like you would if you were wearing your own PJ's) It has very easy secure snaps at the shoulders for nursing as well. These gowns are a great hospital gift also. Sizes range from XS-2XL

Baby Burrito

The Baby Burrito-Oh little did Shad and I know how much this little trick would save our lives when the nurses at the hospital were helping teach us how to prefect it.

After we brought Ms. E home sleepless nights was an understatement. This little girl just wouldn't be put down. In the wee hours of the morning I found Shad watching "The happiest baby on the block" with a screaming baby in his arms. He watched and learned about the 5 s's. Swaddling, Swaying, Shushing, Side, and Sucking. Swaddle the baby, lay them across your arm on their side, Sway back and forth while shushing in their ear (white noise) and holding a binkie in their mouth. It worked like a charm. Turned her tears right off. From then on if she was fed and dry and started crying we used this method.

The most important part of this for us was the swaddling. I needed the perfect blanket and we didn't have one...nor did we sell one at StorkLand. The search was on.

I found several that I love. Miracle Blanket, Swaddle Designs, Luna, Swaddle Me, Swaddle Pod, and Aden and Anais.

I have blogged about several of these before but today I want to talk to you about Aden and Anais. This is the perfect most versatile blanket. It is made of muslin. This fabric is breathable 1st and foremost as well as super soft and durable. The blanket is 47X47. This is so important. You get the best swaddle from a square blanket. The size of this one allows for swaddling for months. (I swear we swaddled Ms. E for 6 months) With every wash these amazing blankets get softer and softer. You can use them to cover the carrier when you are out in the elements. Their sheer textures allows for breathabiltiy which is key in our area but it is also very warm and moisture wicking.

There are lots of colors and styles as well as an organic option. You can try them out in a 2 pack or buy the box of 4. You wont regret this as a gift or for you sweet heart.

Keekaroo How we Love you

This is the keekaroo right height chair. I absolutely LOVE this chair. You guys know me and I love FUNCTION/Multi Purpose/Space Savers. Yes I had another highchair...the kind with multiple trays that reclines and folds up and I loved it. But it lasted us just over 2 years and we used it daily. Now the Keekaroo will stay at our table from sitting up (about 7 months on average-99years) I know it sounds crazy but it is so true.

The Keekaroo can be purchased in 2 separate configurations. The baby configuration comes with the infant inserts (back and bottom parts) and you can choose your color. Lime, Aqua, Chocolate, Pink, Orange...etc... and you also get the high chair tray. This is the 1st stage to this chair. You can raise and lower the seat to the proper height for your table as well as raise and lower the foot portion to grow with baby and keep their feet from dangling and falling asleep.

Now for Stage 2. remove the tray and scoot up the table...Your very own booster with harness.

Stage 3. If you already purchased this as a stage 1 you will need to purchase the new inserts (or just take them out) The only difference is the crotch support. You can choose to use this as an additional seat at the table for all the children or adults.

There are days when this is my chair and days when this is Mr. H's chair.

Another great feature is that you can turn this chair around and use it as a step stool. Mr. H pushes it up to the counter all the time to help me cook. I use it to reach those top shelves.

So in 1 purchase I got a High Chair, Child's Chair, Adult chair (gotta love extra seating) and a step stool. You can choose the color wood for your chair as well as the color of squishy inserts (similar to a bumbo feel). It is a GREAT purchase with long term value.
