Snuggy Baby Wet bag Review +Giveaway!

I am so glad I was given the opportunity to try a Snuggy Baby Wet BagThis is by far the largest wet bag I have ever owned.  It is approximately 14” x 18” and holds over 12 cloth diapers.  It is also large enough to hold a change of clothes, wet swimsuits, or towels.  With its waterproof liner, extra large size, and cute design, this wet bag is THE solution for containing any type of mess during any occasion.  And they make wonderful shower gifts.  A definite must for cloth diapers, potty accidents, beach fun, or gym bags.
My old wet bag compared to the Snuggy Baby wet bag
The Snuggy Baby Wet Bags includes a 6” handle that snaps open and closed to make it easier to attach to something if you want to hang your bag.  I absolutely love the unique idea of a handle!  It snaps right onto our stroller during our zoo trips!  When we are out but not using the stroller I also attach it to our diaper bag.  It is nice not to have to try and shove a full wet bag into an already full diaper bag.  
These wet bags even hold in the odor of breastmilk poops (pretty potent stuff)!!  When you are ready to do laundry, you just need to open the bag, shake the contents into the washer and then drop the bag in.  Super simple.

 For just under $20 you can save yourself a ton of time and headache.  When you purchase anything Snuggy Baby you know you will be getting quality merchandise and that your money is well spent. With over 100 adorable patterns to chose from you are sure to find the perfect wet bag.

Snuggy baby has more than a nice wet bag selection.  They also have ring slings, stretchy wraps, super cute doll slings, AND (my favorite) cloth diapers!  The doll slings are just darling and perfect for that older sibling that feels left out because Mommy is carrying the new baby and not them or they just want to be like Mommy.

Snuggy Baby has offered to give one lucky Party of 4 reader a large wet bag of their very own!

Say Good-Bye to tangles!!!


Little Miss M has super fine hair that always manages to get tangled.  And not just a bit tangled, I’m talking HUGE terrible knots.  Combs and hard bristled brushes hurt her.  We have had some luck with soft bristled brushes but they are certainly not pain free.   She hates having her hair brushed so much that sometimes she throws a fit and refuses to sit still. Thanks to Sh&Sh hair brush’s unique design, the “fight” is over.  
I no longer have to fight M to brush her hair.  Sometimes she actually reminds me to brush it or she takes it upon herself to brush it.  The rubbery handle won’t slip out of your hand and is the perfect size for both kids and adults.  The Sh&Sh glides through her hair with ease and she very rarely complains about it pulling. 

Since it can be used on both wet and dry hair we brush in the morning and before bed after bath time. We also sometimes use it throughout the day because it helps tame M’s crazy out of control static cling. 

I love that it fits nicely in my purse or diaper bag.  And she absolutely loves the mirror on the back!  She will brush one part of her hair and then flip the brush over to see how it looks.


I have seen this particular brush circling the internet a for the last few months and it looked too fun not to try. I’m happy I did.  This is the best brush I have ever used! It’s certainly a revolutionary one and the best way to manage your hair!

Perfect Sheets for Spring- Yorkshire Mayfair Tencel Sheet Set Review

Spring is here, so its time to change out comforters and heavy blankets for lighter more allergy friendly sheets.  However, finding quality sheets that aren't costly can often be a daunting task Are they soft enough?  Are they truly allergy friendly?  Will they fit my bed properly?  These are just some of the many questions you may face when shopping for those perfect sheets.  Well, look no further.  Thanks to Yorkshire Mayfair's Authentic Woven Tencel sheets and their great color selection you are guaranteed to find the sheets to match your needs, I know I did.   I know what you may be thinking...Tencel?  Isn't that made from wood-pulp?  At least those were my thoughts when I saw these sheets.  I decided to try them anyway.  To my surprise Tencel feels a lot like rayon but softer and cool to the touch.  
Another set of awesome Yorkshire Mayair Sheets we own (Egyptian Cotton).






I was sent a nice sage color for review .  This sheet set includes both a flat and fitted sheet as well as 2 pillowcases.  Made with the highest quality eco-friendly Tencel fiber, extracted from real eucalyptus trees, they are super breathable and light.  The deep pocketed corners guarantee a perfect fit even for a mattress in addition to a memory foam mattress pad .   The flat sheet is also "over-sized" so it can be tucked snuggly under any size mattress. 




Like any other bed sheet proper care is key.  If you do not take care of your bedding it will not last, no matter the price.  Caring for the Yorkshire Mayfair sheets is very easy.  And as long as you stick to the washing instructions, these sheets will not pill or fray.  Wash in cold water, omit the fabric softener, and tumble dry low.  Some of you may or may not know that harsh soaps and fabric softeners eat away at fabric, so it is best to launder with just regular laundry soap and exclude the fabric softener.  Also, you should avoid using hot water and over drying, as this will cause the threads to come loose.

Overall, I am really impressed with the luxurious sheets of  Yorkshire Mayfair.   You receive quality, luxurious sheets at an affordable price.  While these are not the softest sheets Yorkshire has to offer they are extremely comfortable.  And did I mention that these sheets are both STAIN and WRINKLE RESISTANT!!  Absolutely perfect for our guest bedroom. With these revolutionary sheets you are guaranteed a more restful, restorative sleep.

Easy Potty Training Outside the Home

Have you ever been traveling with a toddler and all of the sudden they have to go.  Panic sets in as you rush to find a bathroom.  If you do happen to locate a public restroom, chances are they are gross.  And on the other hand, if you cannot seem to locate one, looks like you child is squatting along the highway or having an accident. 

When we would travel with Little Miss M, we would pack a little potty chair in the trunk.  The only problem was that it did not have any type of lid/spill proof seal so we would have to dump it out immediately or drive with it and hope it did not spill over before we reached our destination (or a nearby restroom). 

Thankfully a very inventive Mom from the UK, was encountering the same problem and My Carry Potty was born. This easy to carry and leak proof travel potty facilitates potty learning success both inside and outside of the home.  
The design of this potty is pure genius and it is very easy to use.  One thing to make note of: to provide an effective seal and to keep curious kiddos from making a mess, the lid may seem stuck…it is not.  Simply twist the nose and pull open (pull hard if necessary).  To close just push down on the lid, when you hear the secure locking mechanism click, the potty is completely sealed.  With 3 unique designs and 3 bright and fun colors your child is sure to find the right potty for them.  

When our My Carry Potty arrived, my oldest (although too big for it) could hardly contain her excitement.  She cannot wait to start helping her little sister learn to use the potty.  And I suppose, in a pinch, she would be able to use it as well by hovering over it.
I love not having to worry about where to dump the potty while we are out and about.  I also like the extra large non-slip feet that keep the potty from sliding as your child gets on and off. I cannot wait until Baby A starts learning to use the potty, she will love her little ladybug.

As an added bonus to such a wonderful product…it came with a fun book with brightly colored pages called George and Hallie and the Magic Carry Potty.  This can be an effective tool when starting this journey.
Along with the story I also receive a potty chart and stickers, which is a great reward system!



So whether it’s a picnic at the park, a day at the beach, or a long road trip in the car, My Carry Potty has you and your little one covered!

A Simple and Stylish Way to Soothe a Teething Baby.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: Teething bites (pun intended).  Finding relief for your little one can sometimes seem impossible.  All they want is for the pain to go away...chewing sometimes helps.  During this time, everything goes straight into their mouths.  And since babies have a hard time keeping hold of things, they are constantly hitting the dirty ground that we walk on.  Now the problem we face is germs.  So why not fashion a chewable necklace that allows you to hold them while they soothe.

RubyRoo Baby says it all, “Stylish teething necklaces make teething easier by making your baby's favorite place to be - your arms - a little more soothing with beautiful wearable teether that's safe and soft to chew.”  

 Style choices:

 CORA

I have the Cora style RubyRoo Baby necklace in True Turquoise.  I chose this color because I wanted something bright that would catch Baby A's eye and keep her attention.  I love that it draws her attention away from the necklace that I have worn everyday since my Dad passed.  I was constantly prying it out of her hands and mouth but did not want to remove it.  Since I’m usually not the jewelry wearing type when she is not playing with it, I tuck it into my shirt or remove it and place it into its resealable bag.  However, if you are a jewelry gal and would like to coordinate with your wardrobe, they do have multiple colors available. 

Color Choices: 
Fresh Mint
True Turquoise
Strawberry Pink
Glacier Gray (only available with Cora)
Elegant Ivory (only available with Ava)


What I Love:
  • Soft food grade silicone beads are the perfect size and are individually knotted for safety
  • The nylon cord is smooth so it does not catch my hair 
  • Can be chilled in refridgerater for extra relief
  • Customizable 30-inch cord that you can customize to suit your style
  • Comes with a resealable bag for germ free travel
  • Phthalate Free, Latex Free, Lead Free, BPA Free
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Truly keeps Baby A occupied and happy
  • 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE 
Both Baby A and I are so happy that we tried RubyRoo Baby’s teething necklace.  Its nice to have something that won’t fall to the floor every time she drops it or moves onto something else and it keep her more focused when she is nursing.  With her no longer being so easily distracted nursing has become more pleasant for the both of us. #MakingLifeEasier! Thanks RubyRoo!

Make sure to stop by Amazon to order today!

 ***WARNING: This product is NOT a toy. Do not place jewelry around baby's neck or leave baby unattended with jewelry. Do not let baby chew on clasp; clasp is not chewable. Inspect jewelry before each use; if damaged, discard.
