Few things are more distressing to new parents than a baby in discomfort or pain who won’t stop crying, no matter what you do. And, while the infant will never remember having colic, parents will never forget. However, a simple cure exists. It’s called white noise, and it helps recreate some of the experience of being in the womb, calming babies down and putting an end to the screaming. But, before you plug in a fan or vacuum — or even put in a white noise CD or turn on a white noise app — be aware that noise levels which don’t bother us can give a baby permanent hearing damage.
That’s why Snooz is the ONLY white noise machine on the market with a unique nursery setting. With a real fan inside its stylish body, Snooz creates a natural, comforting sound with customizable levels without blowing cold air on infants. And, its app for iOS and Droid provides control, including off and on times, from a distance so there’s no disturbing sleeping babies.

SoundBub was created after the birth of my second daughter, Roma, when my wife Jama realized that the only way to soothe her and keep her entertained on the go was to give up her phone. So I set out to solve the problem and created a portable speaker that played white noise for nap time and music from a phone via Bluetooth for playtime. Of course, it all had to come in a child-friendly package made with chew-safe materials so that it could survive for the long haul.

Vliba thick and sturdy diaper disposal sacks provide an easy and convenient diaper change product for moms on the go. One package contains 4 easy to dispense packets for Mom’s purse, car, stroller, and diaper bag and eliminates the problem of dealing with a messy diaper while visiting friends, shopping, traveling or taking a stroll in the park. Mom is ready for anything and ready to be out with baby.
While raising their own children our parent inventors saw a significant need for a thicker diaper disposal sack without clumsy handles. Competitive sacks are about as thin as a grocery store bag and can and do tear. The handles also leave gaps when tied, leaking odors and occasionally spilling contents. The innovative Vliba Diaper Disposal Sacks are extra thick and strong, made from high-density polyethylene to effectively seal in wetness and odors.
The Vliba Individual Disposable Diaper Sacks are perfect for diaper changes on the go. For a quick change in the car, simply place the soiled diaper, wipes and other messy items inside a Vliba Diaper Sack. The sack and its contents can later be thrown away in a trash can when you arrive at your destination. The Vliba Diaper Sacks are also great for changes at the home of friends or relatives. Once tied, the sack and its messy contents can be placed in any trash can – no mess, no smell, no problem.

Cara Says " I often found myself overwhelmed, easily derailed and feeling guilty as I tried to balance a demanding job and my growing family. Over time I learned how to let go of my insecurities and guilt, embrace imperfection and practice self-compassion.

I also offer practical tips for things like getting organized, dealing with homework, breastfeeding and getting rid of with the ever-so-annoying head lice.
So whether you’ve just found out you are pregnant, or have a child in school I hope that by sharing my mistakes and lessons learned along the way, I can help you gain confidence and let go of the guilt that can make parenting so much tougher.

Sleeplessness, exhaustion and new mom jitters are huge issues new mom's deal with.
Let's face it, a good night's sleep is hard to come by for new moms (and dads!). Imagine a product that helps relieve anxiety, stress and sleeplessness. Nashville-based technology company, HUSO, has developed a product that helps women (and men!) do just that.

HUSO delivers *uncompressed *human toning sounds to the body. This is no cheap iPhone app - through headphones and strategically placed pads, the tones create a natural resonance in your body. It fights anxiety, stress, ADHD and sleeplessness. People around the world have reported improved well-being as a result of using the technology, including doctors, CEOs and professional athletes.
New mom's spend thousands of dollars on their children, from strollers to car seats to diapers. Why not invest in their mental health too? HUSO can be found on Amazon for $469.00 to $499.00 and is a gift that not only helps mom, but the whole family.

We all know that mom life is no joke... it's tiring, demanding, and basically REQUIRES caffeine - lol! Unfortunately, though, almost every mom that I know (including myself) NEVER gets to finish her cup of coffee when it's fresh and warm. We're always drinking it cold, letting it sit, and reheating the same cup over and over - leading to...well, I'll just say it - one crappy cup of coffee.
So why, if we need this magical drink to survive, do we all suffer through a gross cup of java day after day? Here's where we come in!! At Mama Java, we *very* carefully select our beans and roast them to pass what we lovingly call the motherhood test.
You can let a cup of Mama Java sit, reheat it, even drink it cold and old and it will STILL be a great cup of coffee. If that's not enough, we've made our roast names and descriptions funny and relatable to REAL mom life. You know, dishes in the sink, laundry piles sitting, wondering what in the hell you're going to make for dinner.... we've all been there and understand the challenges of #momlife and that's why we roast coffee JUST FOR MOMS.
So I say give mom something she's truly going to use as a gift this year...a bag of this amaze-balls coffee!! Let me know if you'd like to hear more, want high res images or better yet - try a sample for yourself!

Unlike most postnatal exercise routines, which are really nothing more than generic toning exercises, my program:
systematically rebuilds all four layers of the abdominal wall,
repairs diastasis recti (abdominal separation),
eliminates back pain and pelvic instability,
realigns the spine,
and develops functional core strength and stability.
Best of all, my system re-flattens the abdominal wall and narrows the waist, FAST!
The DVD features three progressive workouts (one just for women with diastasis recti) and uses a fitness band (included free) so that women can adapt the intensity of the exercises to their individual fitness levels. The first workout, “Gentle First Moves” is ideal for post C-section recovery. All the workouts are short enough to do while baby naps.
Thousands of moms, from all over the world have transformed their bodies with my powerful, yet easy to do, specialty exercises.

Üllo is a revolutionary wine purifier that filters sulfites with Selective Sulfite Capture technology to restore wine to its natural taste -as if you opened the bottle right at the vineyard. It is estimated that 3 million Americans may be sensitive to sulfites. When founder James Kornacki learned his aunt was sensitive to these chemicals, he made it his mission to solve this problem and launched Üllo.
Sulfites are artificial preservatives that are added to all wines to prevent oxidation and bacterial spoilage, but once the bottle is opened they are no longer needed. Some customers even claim that removing sulfites helps to prevent a headache the next day. The Selective Sulfite Capture technology process works by sequestering only sulfites, and allowing other compounds in wine to flow through unaffected. The end result is wine with less than 10 PPM (parts per million) of sulfites (most wines have sulfites ranging from 25-30 PPM with the legal limit being 350 PPM).
