News, reviews and a request for booze...

My hopes and dreams are dashed.  My spirit shattered.

We're stuck in the helmet for at least another four months. I don't even know why.  I even called my mom to confirm she heard the same thing as I did at our last appointment - only one more month.

Kieran's head still has a triangular shape to it and Trevor wants it to be more round.  I just don't get how we went from one month to "at least four" (which would actually be 5 months from our last appointment where he said one month).  Did I mention he said we only had one more month?

I'm totally bummed, and you're all stuck with me for at least another four months.

But I'm sure you don't mind...how can you resist this face?


If you feel really sorry for us and want to help, you can forward donations, wine and chocolate to us.  Email me for our address.  Thanks in advance.

Now I have to tell you a little story.

I was lucky enough to receive a Tumzee to try out and review for you lucky folks.  I swear this blog isn't going to turn into a review site, it's just a product I thought would be super beneficial for anyone struggling with tummy time and flat spots and begged them to let me try it out so I can tell you about it.

So the wonderful people at Tumzee agreed to send one to me, and let me tell you, this thing is awesome! I wish I had known about it when Kieran was younger and we had serious tummy time issues.  It's like a Bumbo with a purpose!

Kieran seemed so comfortable in it, and loved looking around.  One of our biggest tummy time issues was that Kieran would always stare at the floor.  He wouldn't lift his head to look around.  The Tumzee seems to be the perfect solution for that.  The position it puts the baby in is perfect for strengthening their neck and back muscles and giving them a good view of everything around them.   It's also not too high off the ground that they can't reach for something put in front of them...talk about multi-purpose! Strength training and developing motor skills all in one.  Bonus!

It's also perfect for containing a mobile baby for a bit.  I stuck Kieran in it quite a few times with some toys in front of him and he was more than happy to lay there and play...without being able to crawl away on me! Awesome!

I love this product and would recommend it to anyone.  It would make an amazing shower or new baby gift and is awesome for anyone who's struggling with tummy time or needs to do repositioning techniques for plagiocephaly.

Oh and did I mention it was designed in Canada?  Love it!

Now here's the best part.  Because spending money makes me feel good, and having awesome readers makes me feel good too, I'm going to combine the two.  I'm going to spend my money on one of my awesome readers...and send one of you your very own TumzeeTumzee isn't giving this away, this is coming out of my own pocket because I love this product and want to share it with you.  I really hope John isn't reading this.  Hi hon! Love you! I'll share my donations, wine and chocolate with you! xoxoxoxo
