With fall and cooler temperatures finally here, we are on pumpkin spice overload.  Everywhere you turn you see products and food that are pumpkin spice scented or flavored. That got us thinking… what if we put a twist on a basic homemade play dough recipe to make it ready for fall? Pumpkin spice play dough is easy to make, smells just like fall and gets everyone in the mood for all that this time of year brings.

Pumpkin Spice Play Dough Recipe

Worth the mess

Let’s be honest… you are either a play dough mom or you aren’t. Sometimes, just the thought of the messes play dough can create are enough to make us keep it stored away. While we don’t pull ours out nearly enough, every time we do, the kids all love it and there is no arguing the numerous play benefits it offers kids. It is a great sensory activity for children involving their sight, smell and touch. Playing with play dough also helps develop their fine motor skills and strengthens their creativity, as well as being a very soothing and therapeutic activity for children. Besides all of that, it’s just plain fun for them!

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Play Dough

Homemade pumpkin spice play dough

1 Cup Salt
2 Cups Flour

2 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
Food Coloring

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Play Dough

1. Combine all ingredients (except food coloring) in a medium saucepan.
2. Over medium heat, stir all ingredients until a large ball forms, about 3-5 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and allow to cool until the dough can be kneaded by hand.
4. Divide the dough if you would like to make multiple colors.
5. On a floured surface or waxed paper, knead a few drops of food coloring into the dough until the desired color is achieved.
6. Store in airtight container.

Fall Play Dough Ideas

Fall fun with pumpkin spice play dough

While most kids can come up with plenty of ways to play with play dough just on its own, there are lots of ways to help encourage creativity and exploration. Pull out cookie cutters shaped like pumpkins, leaves and acorns to let your kids create all sorts of fall shapes! Give them rolling pins, cookie sheets or muffin tins to mold their play dough into an imaginative baking session. Take a nature walk in your yard to gather items like leaves, pebbles, acorns or small sticks to press into the dough for an even more tactile experience. The possibilities are endless and this pumpkin spice play dough will be certain to create lots of entertainment as your kids explore, play and get creative!

5 Creative Was to Repurpose Empty Wipe Containers

Since having kids, my house has slowly become overrun with all of the typical baby gear, as expected. Something I didn’t expect? Stacks and stacks of empty wipe containers. It you’re anything like me, you get a new plastic wipe tub each and every time you buy a box of refills. Two years later, and I’ve found myself with dozens stashed away in different parts of the house.

Instead of tossing the extras, I’ve come up with a few creative ways to reuse wipe containers. Best of all? You already have all the supplies you need!

5 Ways to Repurpose Old Wipes Containers

1. Sturdy snack tote

Nobody likes a mushy banana! Empty wipe boxes are the perfect size for a snack on the go. It keeps fruit from getting bruised and crackers from getting crumbly. Every mama knows, a fed kid is a happy kid!

2. Craft supply central

We spend many afternoons coloring, painting, and gluing craft projects together at our house, so it’s nice to have all the supplies organized and accessible. The paints go in one box, brushes in another, and so on. Crafting with kids is messy, but storage doesn’t have to be!

How to Use Old Wipes Containers

3. Car quiet box

Car rides can get long (and noisy!) with a toddler in the backseat. I like to throw together a box of fun toys that keep my daughter busy. A current favorite is this bright lacing bead set. The best part is that you can also easily take these boxes into a restaurant, a doctor appointment or a play date easily!

4. Trusty treasure box

Anybody else have a kiddo who loves collecting “treasures” throughout the day? My daughter gets to keep whatever can fit in her box and once the box is full, she has to decide which items to keep and which items to cut. It keeps her “treasures” manageable and mess to a minimum!

Playtime Wipes for Baby Dolls

5. Perfect pretend play

This is the most obvious use for the box, but my daughter just loves pretending to diaper her dolls. Simply find a scrap of fabric (t-shirt, handkerchief, etc), cut it into strips, and voila! Just like mommy!

What are some ways you like to repurpose baby items?

Brought to you by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste

There’s nothing better than snuggling up to a clean-smelling baby. And, while bath time can be a super-fun activity in every household, there are some important things to remember when suds-ing up your mini. Read on for bath time tips for toddler and babies that’ll keep your little ones safe, comfortable and, of course, squeaky-clean. Ready, set…let bath time begin!

How to Prevent Diaper Rash

Get the temperature right

To ensure your little one is comfortable, fill the tub with a few inches of lukewarm water first. Before placing your baby inside, dip your elbow into the water to check the temperature – it should be warm, but not hot. Extra tip: be sure to test the temperature as bath time progresses. When the water gets too cool, it’s time to take your little one out.

Find the right time

It’s important to find a bath time that works for both you and your mini. If it seems like your baby enjoys a little morning stimulation in the form of a bath, go for it! If your little one seems to mellow out the instant you put them in the tub, then a bedtime bath is the way to go. There’s really no right or wrong when it comes to the timing of a bath. Babies should be bathed two to three times a week—as long as you’re cleaning their face, neck, hands and diaper area daily. Toddlers should be bathed every day since they get into a bit more.

Suds up!

Be sure to choose products that are formulated without added perfumes or dyes – this can irritate and dry out sensitive skin. To wash, apply mild baby wash to a washcloth and work up a good lather. Once you’ve got some bubbles, cradle your little one’s head with one arm and bathe him or her with your other.

Select your shampoo

Because baby shampoo will have direct contact with your little one’s skin, we recommend choosing something that’s safe, gentle, and won’t irritate their eyes. Spend time shopping for the right ingredients and keep an eye out for harmful chemicals like formaldehyde. Our go-to products are always hypo-allergenic and non-scented because they won’t irritate the skin.

Keep it safe

Last but definitely not least; safety should always be #1 on your list. To start, it’s imperative to keep everything you’ll need during bath time close by. Whether it’s soap, a washcloth, towels or a change of clothes, you should have all your essentials within arm’s reach so that you can keep one hand on your little one at all times. Once bath time is done, wrap your baby up with a towel so he or she doesn’t get cold.

While these tips are designed to make bath time safe and fun for the whole family, there are tons of other ways to get valuable tips and tricks, too. Questions? Browse thousands of parenting blogs online for insider information from real moms and dads like you. Prefer something a little more personal? Save those pressing questions and concerns for your favorite parent friends – they’ll always be real and honest with you.

Oh, and once bath time is over, don’t forget Boudreaux Rash Preventor! A no-mess, spray-on skin protectant, it’s ideal for use with every change—especially at bedtime for an easy way to prevent diaper rash and chafing before it starts. The best part? It contains no parabens, preservatives or artificial fragrances. For more information on preventing diaper rash (and for a $3 off coupon!), visit the Boudreaux’s Butt Paste website.

As soon as I learned that we were having a girl I immediately began to stock up on accessories.  Being an accessory junkie, I knew that the words too many simply didn’t exist when it came to hair bows and shoes. While my daughter has been able to utilize her hair bow collection from day one, thanks to being born with a full head of hair, her shoe collection has sat in a drawer growing ever since.

While we are still patiently waiting for our 13-month-old to take her first unassisted steps — a milestone that I am not at all rushing because I know what comes after walking….running — we do have some pretty cute treads for when she gets there.

Umi Shoes
All about Umi

I try and be conscious of items that I purchase for my daughter. When I find a company that not only provides a well-made product, but also one that is considerate of the environment, you can count us in as fans. Umi Baby Shoes do just that while offering a wide collection of stylish, comfortable and durable shoes all wrapped up in one pretty (recycled) package.
Why Umi Shoes are Different





What makes Umi different

We particularity like the Fey for its adorable Mary Jane type look and I love that the back of the shoe flexes, so it is not a struggle to get on my daughter’s feet. And, like most moms, I love the look of a moccasin, the Umi difference is their Belvin moccasins are lined with a breathable cushioned insert, engineered with UmiCloud Tech Memory Foam. All the more supportive and protecting of those little feet!

While I know that my daughter will go through a lot of shoes in a lifetime I can’t help but think I got her started on the right foot.

Finding the best high chair to fit your lifestyle and your decor can be an arduous task. I mean, let’s be honest: some are huge plastic eyesores that will always turn me off, no matter how easy they are to clean. My list of must-haves for our new high chair was simple: must be pretty, must be functional, must have a small footprint and must be easy to clean. Meet the Abiie Beyond Junior Y, the awesome new high chair that is all that — and so much more.

The details of the Abiie Beyond Junior Y

This truly beautiful high chair has won many awards, and it’s easy to see why. Each chair is made from carefully selected, eco-friendly beech wood, and the entire chair — from top to bottom — is BPA, Phthalate and PVC free. The chair itself weighs about 20 pounds but seems so much lighter than that without ever sacrificing sturdiness. As for the footprint, it’s roughly 18″ x 22″ at the base and about 33″ tall. Keep in mind that this chair does not fold down, but it’s so small that I could tuck it away in a corner of the dinning room without feeling like I was adding another piece of furniture.


High chair

What I love about the Beyond Junior Y

From box to baby, the set up of this chair was easy and the directions were super clear. I did have to adjust a bit, because I skipped ahead and ended up missing a step. Serves me right. I also went the extra mile and added pads to the feet to protect our floors. The plastic tray cover is simple to remove one-handed and is dishwasher safe, although I have yet to need to do more than wipe it down. By far, the seat cushions are best thing about this chair. We have all encountered month-old crusties deep in the corner of the high chair seat, and the pad cover never really washes clean, so it’s just gross all the time. Not with the Beyond Junior Y. Not only are there no corners for food to hide, but the waterproof back and seat cushions pop right off for cleaning.

Negatives HC
What I thought could improve

The 5-point harness straps are a nice feature, however they are really long, even with maximum tightening. In this picture, Abbey is 7 months old, and the straps were pretty much useless because there was so much slack. I ended up just tying them in the back, and now it’s perfect. I’m sure I could just lower the seat, but I like that she is so high because I often stand up while I’m feeding her. The straps also got dirty pretty quickly. Lastly, while not a huge issue, the mechanism for getting the tray locked in place is very simplistic, as you can see from the pictures. If you like to rock long nails, I guarantee you’re going to have an issue. I wish you could pop off the whole tray with one hand, but like I said, the plastic tray cover can be removed one-handed so maybe that was their compromise.

Final thoughts on the Abiie high chair

In the end, I highly highly recommend this high chair. I am one of those people who does a ton of research, because if I’m going to purchase something I want my money’s worth. It needs to last. I am all about convertible everything. This high chair will last your child a very, very long time — and then some. It takes about 20 seconds to move the foot rest and the seat up or down to accommodate your child at any age. You can remove the tray and have extra seating at any table. It’s stylish, extremely functional, eco-friendly and comes in an array of colors to match any decor. I don’t think I could be any happier with this high chair and I know you will be too.

Let’s talk bibs for a second

When Abbey first switched to solids, I was still using the old, tiny fabric bibs that always ended up crusty and stained. I found these adorable bibs from Make My Day Products. These oh-so-soft bibs are made of 100% food grade, stain-resistant and BPA-free silicone. I’m in love with how handy they are. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stuck a jar of baby food and a spoon in the crumb catcher, rolled it up and threw it into my diaper bag. After I use it, I roll it all back up, dirty, for home and it goes straight into the dishwasher. Yes, they’re dishwasher safe. Seriously though, how stinkin’ cute? Make My Day has 17 different styles of bibs. From pretty pearls to a dapper tuxedo, it’s impossible to pick just one.

Do you have a favorite bib? And how much do you want to try the Abiie high chair?

Kids love snacks, whether you’re feeding them after school or during a morning playdate with friends. Healthy snack ideas for kids don’t have to be boring or the same two things over and over again. Getting your kids to eat healthier snacks can be a matter of modeling healthy eating yourself — but you have to be a little tricky about it. Try these healthy snacks both kids and moms will love.

Veggie chips
Take advantage of their love for crunch

Kids — ok, and moms — love crunchy snacks, and The Better Chip® helps incorporate a little bit of veggie flavor into their double-corn masa chips. Since the vegetables are cooked directly into the chips, kids won’t walk around with flavor dust ready smearing on anything they touch.

My picky eater steers clears of vegetables for the most part, but he adores chunky salsa. I have a hard time convincing him to eat it with celery sticks, so The Better Chips seem like a snack compromise that works for both of us. The verified non-GMO and gluten free chips come in five bold flavors. I adored the Chipotle, but he found them a little spicy. Spinach & Kale ended up being his favorite — if only I could get him on board with other versions of green veggies.

Kale chips

Hummus doesn’t always work with chips, but The Better Chips are hearty enough not to break apart with every dip. My seven-year old and I thought the Jalepeño tasted amazing with our favorite garlic hummus, though it was a little too hot for my kindergartner. He preferred the Corn — and passed over the hummus for extra salsa.

healthy snacks
Sneak in a little protein with their chocolate

A little chocolate feels like a special treat, but it’s possible to sneak in a little nutrition with the sweetness. The goodnessknows® Snack Squares combine dark chocolate, nuts and dried fruit for a combination of salty and sweet goodness kids. Each pack comes with four squares. Divide them between kids for just a small snack or let them pick their favorite flavor pack for a heartier burst of protein.

snack bars

The best healthy snacks for kids are ones that can be enjoyed by the whole family, and the goodnessknows bars are a better option for an afternoon energy boost than your normal cup of coffee. Apple, almond and peanut dark chocolate is perfect for fall, but my favorite was the peach, cherry and almond dark chocolate. The peach flavor was a little unexpected and not something I see a lot in the snack bars we normally purchase, so I appreciated the twist on our regular snack flavors.

What are your favorite healthy snacks to share with your kids?

Why buy an umbrella stroller?

Yep, many parents become familiar with stroller brands that give us the reversing seat or are travel system ready when our babies are newborns. Now we are ready to take it up to the next stage! When our child is bigger, we simply need something lightweight and convenient for errands or that big trip coming up. We are ready for an umbrella stroller!

Shopping the best umbrella strollers

You know you don’t want something small and rickety, and that paying a bit more means much higher quality. But did you know that some brands have come out with umbrella strollers that you might not have thought of? Baby Jogger makes an umbrella stroller, and have you even heard of Summer Infant?

Here are some of the best umbrella strollers out there that are still relatively new, released within the last year or two, in each spending category: higher end, mid-range and budget.

Vue-Lite-Travel-SystemHigher End > $150

Baby Jogger Vue & Vue Lite

Lots of you have heard of Baby Jogger for their City strollers, such as the City Select, City Mini and City Versa. In the last couple of years, Baby Jogger has introduced an umbrella stroller, but they reinvented it!

The Vue and Vue Lite were one of the first on the market to have a reversing seat; the photo on the top of this article shows the reversed seat. Both take a car seat, as well, and are a good option for a lightweight travel system if you don’t want to have to buy a car seat frame stroller separately.

The Vue Lite is $180 and weighs 14.5 pounds. Choose from four colors.

The Vue also comes in four colors and is between $140 and $200. It weighs just over 17 pounds and is a good choice if you don’t mind a more substantial stroller that veers away from the featherweight category.


Mid-Range $100-$150

Inglesina Net

Famous for their baby carriage prams and high-end, reversing seat strollers, Inglesina is also known for their top-quality umbrella strollers, such as the Trip and the Swift. Their newest umbrella offering is the Net, the lightest weight stroller in their line.

The Net weighs just 11 pounds, with a 55-pound weight capacity. Features such as a reclining seat and removable washable seat pad give your child much comfort. The seat beneath the padding is mesh, so on hot days take out the padding, and you have adequate air flow to keep your little one cool. A big canopy with SPF 50 shields harmful sun rays.

Parents enjoy features such as a self-standing fold and a carry strap for on-the-go transport. I like the cup holder and the decent sized storage basket —for an umbrella stroller! Inglesina Net is a popular choice for vacations.

This handy little stroller retails for $149 and comes in five colors. Reviews so far are at 5 stars!


Budget < $100

Summer 3D Lite

This is a fantastic option if you want to save a bit of money and have nearly all the same options as the Inglesina Net. The Summer 3D Lite has many of the same features and costs about $70 less. It has a reclining seat and a good-sized storage basket for an umbrella stroller. It weighs 12 pounds and holds up to 50 pounds, so those aspects are slightly different.

I like the extra storage pocket behind the seat for things like your keys and cell phone, and you get a cup holder, too.

Reviews give it 4.5 stars for the lightweight convenience and for how well it held up on travels abroad. The Summer Infant 3D Light is only $80 and comes in six colors.

These are just three of the newest umbrella strollers out there, but there are more quality umbrella strollers in each price category. This guide will help you find the best one for your family.

Now that you’ve taken a look at the Baby Jogger Vue/Vue Lite, the Inglesina Net and the Summer Infant 3D Lite, which one would you get? Let me know in the comments below.

Best Child Safety Products Savvy Sassy Moms
10 Best Child Safety Products

When it comes to your child, I’m sure their safety is constantly at the forefront of your mind. Luckily for us, there are products out on the market that can do everything from keeping track of where they are using GPS to a car seat that installs itself. If you’re a tech geek like me, then this list of 10 high-tech child safety products is for you.


1. Evenflo SensorSafe

We’ve all heard the stories and seen the headlines, another innocent child locked in a hot car, forgotten by a distracted parent. Evenflo has taken it upon themselves to find a way to make sure this doesn’t happen. They created the EvenFlo SensorSafe infant car seat, the very first car seat with an alarm. Upon arriving at your destination you car will chime, reminding you your baby is still in the vehicle. A sensor in the chest clip sends a wireless signal to a receiver in your dash. Bonus: it will also tell you if the chest clip comes unbuckled.

AC 1200

2. AngelCare Video Movement & Sound Monitor

The AngelCare Video Movement & Sound Monitor is in a class all its own. AngelCare blended their award-winning, under-the-mattress movement monitor with a top-of-the-line video monitoring system to create a monitoring system with all the bells and whistles you could ever want. In my opinion, the cherry on top is that this monitor creates it’s own wi-fi network, meaning you don’t have to have wi-fi in your home to use it and to connect to it from your smart device.

3. iSwimband

The iSwimband is a wearable sensor that notifies your phone or tablet if the device has been submerged longer than a preset limit — or if it even enters the water (for your little non-swimmer.) It works in any type of body of water, is completely portable, works with both Android and iOS and can handle up to 8 iSwimbands per device — enough for your whole crew. This isn’t just a summer must-have, think winter by the lake, hot tub or anytime your children will be around a body of water. The iSwimband is an excellent extra level of security for water safety for an amazingly low price, just $39.99 for one.


4. BeLuvv Guardian

Did you know about 8,000,000 children go missing every year? That’s frightening and, in many cases, preventable. The BeLuvv Guardian is a wearable GPS-tracking system for your children that not only tracks your child’s whereabouts but will also send push notifications to your phone if your child goes out of a pre-designated perimeter. The Guardian is iOS and Android compatible, lightweight and water resistant. There is even a version for Fido!


5.Pacif-i Smart Pacifier

Coined as “The worlds smartest dummy,’ the Pacif-i is no ordinary pacifier. This smart binky tracks and records your baby’s temperature, syncing via Bluetooth to a free app on your iOS or Android device. If that’s not enough, it also will tell you if your bundle of joy has wandered off, can GPS track, is dishwasher safe (what!?!) and will buzz in order to help you locate it if — ok, when — it gets lost! That really is smart! The Pacif-i is available for preorder here in the states on their website.


6.Sproutling Wearable Baby Monitor

If you’re interested in knowing everything about your baby then the Sproutling is for you. Created by two fathers, Sproutling is a wearable activity monitor for your baby. Think FitBit for infants but multiply that my a thousand and you might be close. The Sproutling senses your baby’s motion, skin temperature, position and sleep patterns. The Sproutling is so smart it will tell you how much time you have until your baby wakes up from their nap, when she’s actually awake and what kind of mood she’s in before you even walk into the room. (Do they make one for husbands?) Most importantly, Sproutling will notify you immediately the minute something is seriously wrong. Just think of the peace of mind that comes from this tiny device. It’s so popular that it’s currently sold out, but you can get yourself on the wait list via their website.



7. 4moms Origami GO and infant car seat

It’s absolutely impossible to talk high-tech baby gear and not have 4moms somewhere on the list. Known for some of the coolest items on the market right now, 4moms is at it again with two new products guaranteed to make you giddy. First we have the Origami Go, the umbrella version of their outstanding Origami stroller. Just like it’s big brother, the Origami GO folds and unfolds on it’s own power, has an onboard generator, daytime running lights, and a LCD display, but this one is under 16 pounds. Just wait until you see what 4moms has cooked up for the highly competitive world of infant car seats. The 4 moms infant car seat INSTALLS ITSELF. Just let that sink in for a second. It also has auto-tensioning and leveling, 2 LCD screens and a no-thread harness. Both products are currently awaiting a release date so keep your eyes open. Wow.


8. Brio Safe Outlet

Brio has given the electric wall socket a much needed makeover with the Brio Safe Outlet. Started as a Kickstarter campaign, Brio wanted to come up with an easy way to keep kids safe in their own homes. Statistics state up to 7 kids a day are taken to the hospital from shocks and burns from regular household electric outlets. The Safe Outlet completely eliminates any shock hazard, as it only brings electricity to the outlet if it senses a plug, then powers it accordingly. Fingers, toes, toys, are all safe, because the outlet would be turned “off” to those. And don’t think you need fancy know-how to install, the Brio Safe Outlet is installed like any other home outlet.

9. Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer

is one of the coolest all-around household thermometers I have ever laid my hands on. The Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer works in just 1 second and syncs wirelessly to your iOS or Android-enabled smart phone. Within the free app you can create individual profiles, store and track temperature information and medications. The app will even give you advice or tell you to seek medical attention immediately. The Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer is currently doing an Indiegogo campaign, so if you’re quick you can get one right now for up to 40% off the MSRP.


10. Yada Digital Tiny Traveler

The Digital Tiny Traveler by Yada is a video monitoring system for your car created in order to cut down on parental distractions in a time when distracted drivers are one of the main causes of car accidents on the road. Installing in just seconds, the camera has 3 mounting options for rear or forward facing babies, and the 3.5″ video monitor mounts to your dash just as your average GPS system would. This camera even comes equipped with night vision, so from road trip to quick trip, you will always know what your baby is up to.
