American Blanket Company: American-Made Affordable Luxury For Your Baby

American Baby Blanket3
Are you looking for a really great blanket for your little but can’t seem to find the right one. At the very least, can’t seem to tell the difference between the hundreds available on the market? It can be daunting going to your neighborhood baby superstore and staring at that 15 foot high wall of blankets and bibs, and onsies! I was lucky enough to be able to check out the goodies from American Blanket Company. I was really pleased…and so was the baby.
These blankets are are all American-made with luxurious, quality fabric. They are guaranteed for life and they can be customized with baby’s name or date of birth. So even if you are looking for that special gift that won’t be thrown in the pile…this is it! Trust me. Gift givers can choose from a variety of colors, including the new hand-stitched patterns, and the American Blanket Company gift wraps every shipment, so there is no hassle in buying a gift bag or wrapping paper.  They are a great shower gift, and reasonably priced…especially for the perfected hand-brushed quality.

You can check out the most luxurious fabric, Luster Loft, and its available baby blanket colors here.  Also check out the new Luster Loft blankets with patterns in blue, light pink, dark pink, and purple here.
And if you were wondering what the difference is betweent the blankets and quilts…they are the same soft, quality material, however a quilt is two-ply so it is thicker than the blanket.
Check it out. I’m certain you will be pleased!

Teach My Baby All-In-One Learning Kit is a fabulous set that gives you all sorts of really fun, educational tools for your baby. This set includes finger puppets, board books, flashcards, nesting blocks, puzzles and a storyboard all designed to stimulate your baby’s fine motors kills, hand-eye coordination and so much more.  The set is designed to be used by parents or any caregiver really for 20 minutes a day of ready to go fun that also helps your baby develop early skills. Everything is packaged in a handy briefcase like tote that keep everything nicely at hand or makes it easy to take with you. The Baby Set, geared towards 6-18 months, offers first words and numbers along with sound & touch pieces and self awareness tools, such as the mirrored flashcards to help learn body parts. It’s all very fun and offers a great variety for little ones.

This is a great option for a gift or even for those times when you, grandparents or a babysitter just aren’t sure what to do next with your baby and need a bit of help with ideas. It’s really perfect for regular daily play too. Teach My Baby All-In-One Learning Kit a great place to turn for educational fun that’s easy for you and that your baby will love. I tested the Baby Set out with my 4 children who range in age from 1-5 and they all loved it. It’s designed for my youngest, but her 3 older brothers really loved everything in the case. The puzzle flash cards and finger puppets were a big hit with all 4 and  my 1 year old loved the mirrored flashcards, nesting blocks (also mirrored) and the books. And when everyone is done, it’s so easy to just pack it all back up into the case or to tote it anywhere. This can really come in handy while traveling too. If you’re child is a bit older, you’re still covered. There are 2 additional sets for Toddlers and for Preschoolers. The Toddler set contains 17 teaching tools to help toddlers master the basics:  alphabet, numbers, shapes and colours/colors. Developed in consultation with Judith Rowlands, B Ed., M Ed., the Teach My Preschooler set is designed to give your child a head start on Kindergarten. As a mother of a son who has just wrapped up Kindergarten, I know how important that really is. The set is also divided into 4 groups, Ready to Read, Ready to Print, Ready for 1-100, and Ready for Math and is complete with books, flashcards, posters, a print guide, transparencies and a magic drawing board. This is something that I really wish we’d had last Summer before we hit Kindergarten and that I’ll probably be getting for my younger children as we approach our next year of Kindergarten.

The sets sell for $49.99 and can be found on the Teach My website. Please visit the site for much more information as well as videos that give you a a very clear view of how useful these sets can be for you and your child.

MD MOMS Baby Silk Daily UV Shield

MD MOMS new sunscreen, Baby Silk Daily UV Shield, offers a great option for the summer. This creamy, moisturizing SPF 30+ sunscreen rubs in easily, leaves no white smudges behind and works really well. As with all MD MOMS products, this one leaves out all of the yucky stuff you don’t want on your child’s skin. It’s fragrance, paraben, phthalate, lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum  and wax free plus offers a broad spectrum of mineral based protection, so no chemical sunscreens either.  Safe for your littlest ones, even young infants, this sunscreen will also stay on through sweaty trips to the playground or time in the pool as it’s sweatproof and water resistant. If your vacation plans involve flying, Baby Silk daily UV shield is also  TSA-approved for carry-on luggage. It’s such a silky smooth product that you can easily wear it yourself alone or even under makeup making it a winner product for the whole family.

I really did test this one out on my very fair, very dry skinned 5 year old. He wore this to school every day this week and didn’t get so much as a pink tint anywhere on his body despite temperatures in the mid to high 90s. It goes on quickly and smoothly and unlike many mineral based sunscreens, it does not leave a white and chalky mess behind. This smooth formula disappears into skin with little effort. Even though I applied it at 8 in the morning, he was well protected through a long sweaty field day and midday recess. An added bonus, his dry skin is well hydrated and not as itchy because of the moisturizing properties and I only have to attack him once a day with one product instead of two. baby silk daily UV shield  contains antioxidant vitamins E & B5, grapeseed oil and avocado oil for very healthy, happy skin Not only does it not irritate my sons sensitive skin, it seems to actually improve it which is added benefit that I’m so glad to have. It can be hard to choose a sunscreen that you know will work and is safe for your child. I feel confident that MD MOMS Baby Silk Daily UV Shield offers a safe and effective sunscreen option for my children with less worry for me.

Please visit the MD MOMS site for more details and to see the full line of MD MOMS products. If you order directly from the MD MOMS site this summer,  shipping is free through 9/5/11.
