BHSE GIVEAWAY #4 - Boon Benders Adaptable Utensils! (CLOSED)




Boon Inc. was created by Rebecca Finell and Ryan Fernandez where it all began with a messy toddler bathtub.  Headquartered in Arizona, Boon carries a selection of innovative baby gear and products - high chairs, bath toys, feeding products, training toilet and much more.  All their products are designed with a modern flair, which I really appreciate. 
A boon is defined as "a benefit bestowed, especially one bestowed in response to a request."
I have a set of Boon Benders waiting for Baby Hsu when he's ready to eat solids.  The Benders, for ages 9+ months, were designed for first-time eaters to help transition to regular utensils.  The bendable fork and spoon set can be adjusted to accommodate a child's motor skill development.  I love how the Benders have soft, easy-grip handles and that they're BPA-free, Phthalate-free, and PVC-free.  But, one thing I wished the set would've come with is a case to carry the Benders in my diaper bag. 

Boon Benders are perfect for feeding solids to Baby Hsu and a must-have on everyone's baby registry (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

BUY IT!  Boon Benders may be purchased for $5.99 at major retailers, such as Babies R Us and Target, and also at Boon Inc.

Pregnancy Week 28 Update

28 weeks pregnant and 12 more weeks to go!  I am so happy to hear that my friend (the pregnant one in the photo) has given birth to a very handsome baby boy several days ago!  Baby Hsu can't wait to play with him soon.  Here I am (second one from the left) at our friend's wedding that occurred over the Memorial Day weekend.  Here's my baby bump, although you can't really see it in this picture due to my colorful dress.

Last week, Hubby and I were excited and stunned at my 3D ultrasound session.  The moment we saw Baby Hsu's face, our hearts just melted.  Every little move he made, our hearts just screamed.  The most memorable moment was when his lips moved when we were looking at him from his profile side.

BHSE GIVEAWAY #3 - Bummas Cloth Baby Wipe! (CLOSED)

 

Bummas is the eco-friendly cloth baby wipe made especially for drying baby bottoms and blocking surprising squirts.  In addition, I also use the cloths as washcloths.  It is said to eliminate diaper rashes without the use of powders, talcs, and ointments.  The soft 5" x 7" Bummas is made in USA and is made of 100% cotton - woven velour terry cloth.  The durable cloths are able to sustain its size and color after multiple washings.  Bummas are available in a variety of colors, in packs of 10 cloths.  I enjoy using The Wild Ones

"After the wipe and before the dipe, use a soft kiss of cloth to dry bums off.  Keep diaper rash at bay the Bummas way!"
 


How to use:  When changing diapers, place one cloth over your baby's privates (which will soak up an entire pee).  Then, wet another cloth to wipe and clean your baby's bottom.  Lastly, use another dry cloth to thoroughly dry baby off.  

Bummas is wonderful for your diaper changing needs and is a must-have on everyone's baby registry (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

BHSE GIVEAWAY #2 - $25 GC A Lucky Horseshoe Vinyl Wall Art Decals (CLOSED)





A Lucky Horseshoe is a Washington-based company that creates artistic and quality vinyl wall art and decals. They also feature horse and wildlife photography and drawings.  A Lucky Horseshoe's collection of vinyl decals include words and quotes, animals, trees and wildlife, planes and automobiles, and other decorative images.  The decals may be used to decorate any room in your house and laptops, binders, desks, cars, and anything you like.

When thinking of how to decorate Baby Hsu's nursery without damaging and painting the walls, the way to go is to put up cheerful vinyl wall decals with vibrant colors.  Sticking the decals to the wall was a cinch.  It's like a sticker where you just stick it on to the wall with no other materials needed.  Although, it is advised to follow the instructions provided for optimal results.  It just takes a little patience, especially if you have a lot of individual pieces like the Leaves in the Wind tree I chose (pictured).
