CPR Party!

CHOKING IS NO JOKE

The other day I was telling a friend about a choking incident that Sofia had when she was 3 years old and how fortunate I was to have taken an infant CPR class. I was able to correctly and safely apply the CPR techniques to help her. True to her Brazilian roots, Sofia loves barbecue and choked on a big piece of “Picanha” steak. Despite the experience, she still loves Brazilian barbecue.

But no joke, this is a serious subject and while the incident happened some time ago, I feel I should freshen up on CPR techniques.  I discovered the Infant CPR & Choking Refresher Video and had an opportunity to talk to the CPR Instructor Ty Vaughn.  She happily agreed to share her video with us and to tell us more about the CPR Party.

“A CPR Party is an informal 2-hour comfortable way to learn valuable, life-saving techniques in CPR.  While enjoying refreshments in a relaxed environment of 5 or more individuals, a CPR Instructor guides attendees through the appropriate hands-on techniques and processes of saving a life. This approach offers attendees a more pleasant experience than in the traditional classroom setting.”

Calling all Mommies – doesn’t this sound awesome?  A get-together with your gang enjoying some food and wine (yes, I said wine!) to learn some life-saving techniques in a fun, fun way! Let’s get this party started! Who’s in?

Big Kid’s Pediped Shoes

I feel like I am always in a mad dash to find dress shoes for my two boys, age 5 and age 9. I wait way too long and then rush right before they really need nice shoes for holiday festivities (namely their annual school Christmas Program)! Then I spend way too much for a a couple pairs of uncomfortable dress shoes that they’ll likely never wear again.

A friend recently gifted us a pair of Pediped leather boots for molder son…and in perfect timing…t- minus 7 days til the Christmas Sing-along! I have always associated Pediped with infant shoes and remember having the cutest pairs of Pediped ‘first step’ mocassins when my kids were tiny. I hadn’t even thought to check the brand out again for ‘Big Kid’ styles and I’m thankful to be reintroduced to them.

I admit I love dressing my guys like they’re little men and I’m into the more mature look for them. At first glance the Pediped Flex Lionel Boots looked like amore fitting style for 5-7 year old at the oldest, but we tried them out anyway and were pleasantly surprised! They look much more sophisticated on and wear well with a casual jeans/cords look as well as with slacks. The shoes are made with a high quality leather upper with a contrast stitch and a cool red color pop. I’m a sucker for a pop of color on a muted tones! My son loves the way the boot feels and was running and dancing around in them like they were sneakers.

I also love that Pediped’s Flex Fit SystFullSizeRender1em™ provides additional insoles that can be inserted for a snug fit then removed for room as yourchild’s foot grows. These insoles can reduce a shoe size by almost half a size, extending the life of the shoe. Brills!

:)Overall, we were really pleased with the boot and will definitely be wearing them a bunch this season. The only con I’d say is that they tend to run a bit on the small side, so I’d size up a half a size.

 

Thank you Pediped for the reintroduction! ’Tis the Season to get more outta those shoes!

Convenience is everything to me.

As a mom of 2 boys, convenience is everything to me. Having a 5 year old who does a lot of extracurricular activities, I’m always on-the-go (with both boys in tow), so products that save me time and energy is a win for me!  The B.Box Travel Bib comes with a soft spoon that both conveniently folds inside the catcher and I was even able to fit a food pouch before zipping it up. When my baby is ready to eat, I simply take everything out of the catcher-comfortably attach the bib on him and feed him. Once he’s done eating and creating a mess, all I have to do is fold the bib and dirty spoon back inside the catcher and the mess is contained. I now longer need to search for a baggie or wrap the mess in wipes-it was that easy! The B.Box Travel Drying Rack is also a game changer for my active lifestyle. I love how thin it folds up-it fit perfectly in my diaper bag without taking much space and it’s light weight! Now whenever I take the little one to my parents’ place, I feel comfortable knowing his bottles and pacifiers will have their own space being dried. It’s so compact, yet it can hold up to 6 bottles! Since I lack kitchen space, I’ll be using it a lot…I just have to make sure I’ll remember to put it back in my diaper back before I go!
