#Giveaway - Sleep Baby Blissful Sleep - MiracleWare Blankets - ends 03/19/16 US

If you don't know, I am the mother of six wonderful children.  They're all adults now, and my oldest daughter has given me two beautiful grandchildren.  When she had her first one, she was having a little trouble with the baby not sleeping well.  As new grandparents, we just had to come out to help.  We found our little granddaughter fitful and fussy.  I did what a mom of six would do, I swaddled my little granddaughter, and she fell asleep in my arms within minutes.  My daughter didn't realize that her baby needed to be swaddled.  She thought that because her daughter always fussed in the blanket and kicked it off, that she didn't like to be swaddled.  Yet, just the opposite was true.

Babies just love to be swaddled!  It may not seem like it at first.  Like my granddaughter, a baby may make a bit of a fuss at first, but they soon settle down.  Once swaddled, a new baby feels at ease, more like that tight warm place that was their "baby zone."  When getting ready for a new baby, one item you need on your baby registry is a good swaddling blanket.  I've seen many since I've become a grandmother, but non have impressed me as much as the Miracle Blanket from MiracleWare.

Why swaddle your baby?  Do you think that it may hamper your babies development?  With research, I found out that women have for centuries have swaddled their babies - you were probably swaddled as I was.  Here are some more benefits of swaddling:
  • Helps baby sleep better and longer
  • Helps keep babies on their backs
  • Prevents twitching and “starting” (Moro Reflex)
  • Prevents facial scratches
  • Makes breastfeeding easier
Swaddling will also help baby sleep on his/her stomach as well, but I was never a fan of back sleeping.  I know they say it's better, but I always put my babies to sleep on their sides as a friend of mine's baby almost choked to death on his own vomit while sleeping on his back.

What makes the MiracleWare Miracle Blanket better than other swaddling blankets?
  • Stops Colic! - Guaranteed (MiracleWare Guarantee)
  • Easy to wrap and stays put
  • Made of 100% super-soft breathable cotton knit – perfect for any climate
  • 1 size fits all, up to 14 weeks
  • Offers simplicity of design – no buttons, straps, Velcro, knots, or zippers
  • Offers a 100% money back guarantee
See how easy it is to swaddle your baby with the Miracle Blanket:

The fabric of the Miracle Blanket is a super soft cotton knit selected for several good reasons: cotton is breathable so that it can be used in warm climates while still being luxurious enough to keep your baby warm in cooler places; cotton has just enough stretch to absorb your baby’s movements without coming undone but it’s not so stretchy that it won’t stay tight; and, most importantly, cotton stands up to constant use and washing. Like any baby fabric, you should wash it in the cold cycle and dry it on the delicate cycle.

Along with the Miracle Blanket, MiracleWare also kindly sent me their Serenity Blanket and Security Blanket.  Their other items are just as impressive as the Miracle Blanket.

This big 47"x 47" cotton muslin Serenity Blanket has four soft layers of fabric.  It is so soft to the touch!  After I washed it in cold water and hung it to dry (it is tumble dry warm), it was even softer.  This blanket’s value will surely be realized both in the home and while traveling from birth through the early years. The long-lasting muslin fabric is sturdy enough for endless washes and actually softens over time. The loose weave of the fabric makes it breathable yet comforting and warm. This is one indulgence that may actually be hard to part with. Easy to care for washing in a cold gentle cycle, non-chlorine bleach only and warm tumble dry.  I got the cute neutral fabric Lions and Giraffes.  It will be great for my little grandson and future grandchildren when they come to visit - yes, I am keeping this for sleepovers!

The other item that MiracleWare sent me was a 2-pack of their Muslin Security Blankets.  I just love these two little security blankets.  I love my security blanket when I was a toddler.  I took it everywhere with me and played with it constantly, but it was a full size crib blanket.  It got dirty and torn, and I felt so sad when it had to be tossed.  These security blankets are small measuring just 16"x 15", but are perfect for a little one to run around with.

It's just a little piece of heaven for baby and toddler alike in this security blanket that’s all-natural 100% cotton muslin edged with a silky strip of satin. Little ones just love to run their fingers on that strip of satin.  Comfort and style come together with the choice muslin fabric that’s not only soothing and gentle, but durable with it’s flexible yet strong weave that actually becomes softer with age. It’s a calming treasure that won’t get left behind. Easy to care for washing in a cold gentle cycle, non-chlorine bleach only and warm tumble dry.

New moms, you don't know how lucky you are that you can have a Miracle Blanket from MiracleWare to swaddle your newborn in!  In addition to this wonderful swaddling blanket, MiracleWare has a whole line of other great items for your baby: Miracle Sleeper; Miracle Sounds; Baby Bibs; Baby Sets; Baby Washcloths; Changing Pad Covers; Hooded Towels; Muslin Crib Sheets; Muslin Swaddle (oversized swaddle blanket); along with the Security Blanket and the Serenity Blanket - all in coordinating fabric choices.

The Best Flashlight You Will Ever Own - BYB C8 Cree T6 LED Rechargeable Flashlight

My husband always thought that his big flashlight, one of those super powerful millions of candlepower spotlights.  He had to have one, and like a good wife, I let him have his toy.  It made him happy, but it's just too heavy for me.  I want and need a good powerful flashlight that is easy to carry around!

My wish for the perfect flashlight has come true!  From BYB, the C8 Cree T6 LED Rechargeable Flashlight.  It's lightweight, and the light that emits from this little flashlight is amazing!

This incredible little flashlight produces a powerful 1000 lumen beam of light - just like holding floodlight in your hands.  It's bright enough to light up what you need with a powerful bright beam in the middle of the wide swath of light when you click this on.  To help with the clarity of the beam, the flashlight comes with a toughened ultra-clear mineral glass with an anti-reflective coating.  To make the beam even more powerful, the large chamber with the Cree bulb is coated with a superbly polished reflective chrome.  The beam of this flashlight can be projected up to 500 meters.

With a click of the soft rubber button at the bottom of the flashlight, it turns the flashlight on.  Give the button a half-press, and it switches its mode!  There are five different modes all together on the flashlight: high; medium; and low; a fast flashing strobe light; and a real SOS emergency feature.  Whatever mode you turn the flashlight off - high, medium, or low - there is a built memory function that will turn the flashlight back on at that same mode.

The design of the flashlight is quite impressive.  It is powered with a genuine 18650 3.7v 2200mA lithium battery.  This is a premium energy efficient battery that runs for a long time between charges.  So that you can charge this battery, it does come with a plug-in charger meant just for this 18650 battery.  It charges up super quick!

The flashlight is IP-4 water resistant which means that it will be fine in a heavy rain, but not for underwater usage.  The surface is has an anti-abrasive and scratch resistant surface, and is shock proof so it can survive if you accidentally drop it.

I am so happy to have this flashlight.  I keep it right at my bedside for any kind of emergency.  We've recently had two larger earthquakes in the last week in the 4 range.  If there are any big ones that take out the lights in the middle of the night, I am ready!

Need the best flashlight available?  Get the BYB C8 Cree T6 LED Rechargeable Flashlight at Amazon.

Feel Safe & Protected At Home - 1byone Wireless Motion Sensor & Detector Alert System

My family and I live in a beautiful rural desert setting away from traffic and over a quarter of a mile from our nearest neighbor.  Because we live so far out, we do worry a bit about our safety.  If someone comes up in the middle of the night, we want to know!

We know feel quite safe and protected since we received the 1byone Wireless Motion Sensor and Detector Alert System to review.  It has put our minds at ease a bit, as we now know when someone is approaching the house.  Most likely it's my husband coming home after work, but we never know.  We have been surprised by people, most of them riding their off-road vehicles, wondering if anyone was home.  At night, motion lights do not work with these people.  Those lights just come on automatically so no one may be home.  We have to step outside to show our presence, and best with something that looks like a firearm.  I would rather have them further away from the house rather than at our doorstep when we finally know someone is out there, and this wireless driveaway alert system is giving us fair warning.

The Wireless Motion Sensor and Detector Alert System from 1byone consist of the following:

  • 1 x Receiver 
  • 1 x Motion sensors 
  • 1 x Instruction Manual 
  • Wall Plugs 
  • Screws 

This is really just a starter system as can be added onto with more motion sensors that are sold separately.  These sensors are not only good for driveways, but you can use them for doors and windows, too.  We only have one way in and one way out, so just the one receiver is perfect for us.

This is a six-way alarm system where each zone can be equipped with up to 10 PIR or Magnetic Parts Accessories, grouped into 6 zones. Additional motion detectors, window and door sensors can be purchased separately as add-ons to the receiver.

You will find that this system as a reliable range up to 150 meters from wireless motion detector to receiver, Sensor Motion detecting range of up to 5-8 meters, transmits a wireless signal to the compatible receiver when motion is detected.  Just someone walking by 20 feet away will ding this off.

Siren sounds with a volume up to 80dB (within 0.5 meters).  You can adjust the volume with three different settings of high to low.  I like that I can set the device to either alarm and flash or only flash.  With the auto-learning code button on the sensor, it is much easier to pair with new receivers.  It can get pretty loud.  Even on the lowest volume, we can hear it all over the house.

This product differs because of the useful panel to show you which area has been triggered. The 1, 2, 3 zone issue three different alarms, rings once. The 4, 5, 6 way issue the same as 1, 2, 3 way, but sounds twice.  The system has an under voltage display, When the battery voltage is low, Six Red LED on the alarm will blink at the same time, suggesting owner to replace the battery. It can monitor the sensors and the battery condition automatically.  You can add your own DC 5V Power to the indoor unit so you don't need to purchase batteries.

I guess the only downside to this device is that it can get pretty loud and at night, it startles you awake.  Since we do have a lot of wind, it can pick up a tree that is around 20 feet away, and sound off when the wind gets strong enough to move the branches.  It does go off quite a bit, and I find that the kids will turn off the sound and leave only the light flashing.

If you would like more safety at home - be made aware if someone has come up your driveway, or if someone is near a window or a door that needs some extra protection, then get the 1byone Wireless Motion Sensor and Detector Alert System at Amazon for a great deal!

At 1byone, they create products which help people to realize the power of technology and make people's lives better, easier and more fulfilling.  They want to make your life easier and smarter.  This is what they do, and they do it with great passion.

Sublimely Soft SiMignon Bamboo Baby Washcloths

Babies have such soft tender skin.  What a grown-up may consider 'soft' it's may not be soft to baby.  Their young skin is much more sensitive than our adult skin so finding items that are super soft and smooth is important.  You don't want to chafe baby's skin as that can lead to a very unhappy little one - and no mother wants their baby to be unhappy and grumpy because of a simple skin irritation that could have been easily avoided.

The SiMignon Bamboo Baby Washcloths are the perfect soft solution to not chafing baby's skin at bathtime or anytime baby needs a little clean up.  These washcloths are made of bamboo rayon fibers.  Usually rayon is made from wood fibers, but in this case, bamboo fibers are substituted for the wood.  The ending result of this manmade rayon bamboo is a sublimely soft material.  Bamboo fabric is extremely absorbent with excellent wicking properties.   I have even heard that bamboo fabric is antibacterial or antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. These properties make it a fabric that belongs next to your skin and especially good for baby's skin!

Sublimely soft, these are the perfect words to describe the SiMignon Bamboo Baby Washcloths.  These washcloths will not irritate your newborn baby's skin at all.  When I first got these, I rubbed one against my cheek.  The silky softness felt so luxurious against my own skin.  Never have I touched a terry cloth so velvety soft before.  These bamboo washcloths are so superior to cotton.  Your baby will never fuss being washed or wiped with these washcloths!

What makes the SiMignon better than other baby bamboo washcloths?  They are a nice size of 10"x 10" which makes them bigger than most baby washcloths and a good size for adults to use as well.  I thought that the neutral colors of white and mint green make these great for either a boy or a girl can use.  They do come sweetly dressed up as each of the six washcloths are rolled up and tied with a pretty ribbon.  Both the coloring and the neat packaging makes these washcloths excellent for a baby shower gift.

I do love that these washcloths are made from bamboo.  Let us not forget that bamboo is a fast growing crop requiring little or no chemicals to thrive, making it a much more sustainable resource than non-organic cotton.  I did get these for my little baby grandson, but I must admit that I did keep back one for myself to wash my face with each night - he only got five of them.  My daughter was good with that as she thought that grandma needed a little luxury, too!

Find out more about SiMignon washcloths at their website - here.  Purchase a set of the SiMignon Baby Washcloths at Amazon.

Disclosure: I received this set of baby washcloths from SiMignon at a deeply reduced price.  No other compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.
