Giveaway is closed, but please write a review for Baby Indian Productse in the comments if you have some items from them!
Baby Indian Products are made by a Work at Home Mom (WAHM) Tessa Plourde in Quebec. Not only does she make these products, but she also makes them with her Mother In Law! Tessa and her Mother In Law make quite a few baby products. I received a beautiful package from Tessa, everything in it’s own little package with instructions. The presentation of the items is superb, and her products are excellent as well. The reason she started making these products is because she wanted some special products for her son. These products can be made personalized and are made with love!
I just love good ideas, and this is a good idea! When new parents come home from the hospital, they are exhausted, and have no time to remember small little details like “when was the last time the baby ate”. Ok ok, so it’s not really a small detail – that is my point! Parents are too exhausted to remember the important things. Let this nursing bracelet remember for you.
When I first brought my daughter home from the hospital, she did not eat much. She was a lazy sucker. We had to put ice cubes under her toes to keep her awake to eat. Because she was eating so little, I would try to nurse her about every hour or so just to get my milk going and to make me feel like she was getting fed. If I would have nursed her every few hours, she would have been more hungry and eaten more of the fatty hind milk and would have been more satisfied. What was my problem? Although only an hour or so had passed, I had already forgotten when the last time was I fed her, because I felt so tired. My husband would say “are you sure she needs to eat again?” I would say, “yes, it’s been a few hours, I think?!?”. The nursing bracelet would have made a load of difference in my health and in my babies health!
The nursing bracelet is like a 12 hour clock. Every 4 beads there is a number which represents the hour, the 4 other beads in between represents 15 minutes. So when you first start your feeding, lets say at 8:30, you would find the # 8 bead, and then 2 more beads to represent 30. You would move the little clasp to this point and you would know that you started your feeding at 8:30. (Remember, when feeding your baby you time your feedings by the beginning of the feeding). I can’t image how much frustration this would have saved me. The problem for my baby was not that she was lazy, it’s that she wasn’t hungry, she was constantly just getting a little top up and never had a really good feeding!
This bracelet is cute too and comes in a rainbow of colours, it will fit any ones arms as its twisted around and doesn’t have a claw to clasp it together. So big or small, one size fits all! Because there are no frustrating clips to undo to take off the bracelet, you can move the bracelet from wrist to wrist to remember which breast she last nursed on. In the beginning, it’s hard to remember which side your baby last ate. If you just switch your bracelet over – tada – now you know.
This doesn’t have to be only used for nursing mothers, it can be used for bottle fed babies as well to help remember when the last feeding was. Every new parents is exhausted, no matter how they are feeding their child. The nursing bracelet can give parents one less stressful thing to think about.
This would make a great gift for anyone having a baby. The gift of a memory! I wish the bracelet would help me remember things like going to appointments, since my baby has been born, I have shown up a day late to 2 appointments. Since it’s not possible to give the gift of a working brain, the nursing bracelet is the next best thing!
Another products I received from Baby Indian Products is a handmade bib by Tessa’s Mother-In-Law! There is nothing quite like a hand made bib. What I really like about this bib is how big it is. Most of the other bibs that I have are so small, they barely cover my baby’s chest. As many of you know, food makes its way all the way from babies shoulders to their toes many times. This bib nearly covers all that area. It’s nice and thick around the the neck so it covers a very large area.
It’s very well made and nice and thick so wet food doesn’t leak through. It is also tight enough around the neck so food doesn’t make it’s way into those double or triple chins! The velcro makes it easy to put on and take off, no need to spend a few minutes tying the bib on.
As you can see there are many styles to choose from and they are all handmade by Grandma! Which is so nice. My mother doesn’t sew or knit, so most things we buy are manufactured. It’s great to have something in the house that is handmade with love. Doesn’t your baby deserve somehting handmade with love?
I also received a Pacifier Clip from Tessa at Baby Indian Products. There are many styles to choose from, or you can pick your own monogrammed paci clip. I received the little pink one with the flower.
This paci’s clip is metal which makes it very durable and nearly impossible for little hands to pull off. My previous paci clip was made out of plastic. My babies favourite game was to pull off the whole clip from her outfit and throw it on the floor. Isn’t the whole purpose of a paci clip to keep the paci off the floor? Once I received my clip from Baby Indian and I saw how strong the clip was I thought, “alright Baby, this should fix you!” Sure enough, the metal clip is strong enough to stay clipped to her outfit no matter how hard she tugs! The clip will stay at the same place all day and keep her sookie (that’s what we call the pacifier in our house) off the floor and clean.
Not only does the paci clip keep her sookie clean, it’s great to always have it near by for those crisis moments. Before we had a clip, we had 3 or 4 sookies lying around the house. However it always seemed that whenever we NEEDED a sookie, we could never find one. Thankfully with the paci clips that sticks, we always know where her sookie is and the crisis is averted.
My baby has a tendency to turn her head back and forth when she is sleepy, my previous clip had a very short cord, so as she turned her head from one side to another, her sookie would always come out. This was particullary frustrating if we were trying to rock her to sleep. As soon as her sookie came out of her mouth, she would wake up! The cord on this paci clip has enough slack that is stays in as she moves about and drifts off to never never land! This has been a very nice treat for us because before, we used to have to hold the sookie in her mouth while trying to rock her or bouncing her to sleep. It can get kind of awkward in that position for a long period of time.
Overall if you are looking for a paci clip to do it’s job well, please go to Baby Indian and purchase one from Tessa, you wont be disappointed.
BABY MAGIAC BAGS:
The last item that Tessa from Baby Indian Products sent for me to try out was the Baby Magic Bag. This is a mini sized magic bag that you put into the microwave to heat up. It’s great for gassy tummies. As I have said before, my baby is a cry baby. She is extremely gassy and cries non-stop in the evenings. Before the magic bag, we would have to throw towels into the drier and wait for them to warm up and then wrap the huge towel around her tiny tummy. It is somewhat effective but not overly efficient. This magic bag is ready in 30 seconds, and if you’ve ever had a crying baby, 10 minutes crying while waiting for a towel to warm up feels more like an hour! Having something warm and tiny to put on your babies belly in 30 seconds is more than great. This has been especially great for Dad as he cannot bear to hear baby cry!
When the magic bag comes out of the microwave, it has the wonderful scent of lavender herbs, which is very soothing. Lavender is said to soothe headaches, help sleep and create a relaxing atmosphere. I can even feel the effects of the lavender when my baby uses the magic bag.
You could also put the magic bag in the freezer to make it cold it help sooth aches and pains for baby (and mommy too)
Phew,,, Thanks Tessa for all your great products, our family had a really great time testing them out & think they are great!
