Fuelbaby bottle Review and Giveaway

Outings with kids can be so stressful. Especially making sure you have everything you need, think you may need, and backups too. I always forget something - even when I make lists, and it's usually snacks, formula, or now that I am mix feeding, a bottle 
(I know - no mom awards coming my way).

So I was super excited when Fuelbaby reached out to me to try their new - funky bottle. I'm all for quick, simple and easy ways to do things, so a bottle and container all in one was a must have. It's like a smoothie shaker/formula mixer all in one. We have been putting it through its paces - but I guess that goes with out saying when you are a boy mom!

Here's how it works (its super simple)
  • Scoop formula into Fueler (the little compartment at the botton of the bottle)
  • Press and hold bottom while fixing the agitator (the little ball shape thing) to the fueler
  • Twist and secure Fueler to the body of the bottle
  • Fill the bottle with water
  • Press to release the formula (when you are ready)
  • Shake
  • Enjoy (well your baby will enjoy it)
Things I love about this bottle:
  • Its BPA free
  • it is leak Proof (we have tried to make it leak, and it doesn't
  • It has an anti colic air flow
  • is dishwasher safe
  • is a decent size at 200ml
  • you can buy replacement parts
If there is a manufacturing issue with the bottle, you will receive a replacement within 6 months of ordering, the packaging is pretty funky too, and it comes in 3 different colours.

It can be used as a regular bottle once you have finished formula feeding (or if you don't formula feed), and anyone can use it - I get my 4 year old to help out sometimes, and he is now a pro and the release and shake. 

Fuelbaby really does help make my life that bit more simple. All the prep work for trips is done at home, so when the time comes for a bottle, you just press, shake and feed.

Pop over to their website and have a look around, there are some video's explaining just how it works - Fuelbaby. They are based in the USA, but offer international shipping, and it should take around 20 days to arrive.

WIN - I am giving away on Fuelbaby bottle over on Facebook, so pop on over and enter, seriously this is a fab bottle, and once you see for yourself how simple and handy it is to use, you will never look at another bottle again.


Rosie's World - Join in the Fun with her new OE Game

Bringing kids up in today’s world is challenging, especially when it comes to the ever-evolving world of technology. I let my kids (well the one who is old enough to) watch TV, and play on devices from time to time because sometimes I need a break, need to make dinner, or just because.
Letting them do this – makes them vulnerable to so many things online, and trying to keep an eye on what they are watching or looking at can be challenging, especially when I am not in the same room. Rosie’s World has been a lifesaver for this. It’s a safe platform for kids to be on, where they can play around, learn and watch video’s (that are safe) and are all on one website.

100 Biscuit Recipe

This popped up on my news feed a few weeks ago and I saved the recipe because it looked easy!
I say 100, but its really dependent on the size you make yours, mine are about the size of a tablespoon when baked and we have gotten about 100 already, and I still have one roll of the batch in the freezer.

Easy Valentines Day Treats

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, not that I get sucked into the whole commercial side of it, and luckily my kids are small and have no idea what it is, so it’s just another day for us.
Saying that, I did make some Valentine’s day inspired treats – which are so easy to make, and involves NO baking or anything too difficult really.

You will need:
  • Oreo’s (I got the ones that have chocolate cream? In the centre as a change)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • White chocolate (or any colour you want)
  • Sprinkles
Firstly separate your Oreo’s from each other
Melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts until melted (mine took 2 x 30 second bursts)
Dip the end of the stick in the melted chocolate and place on the Oreo that has the icing/filling in it, and then place the top over it. Once they are all done – pop in the fridge to set.
Once they are set (which takes about 5 minutes) – dip them into the melted chocolate and give them a few taps on the side of your bowl to get rid of excess chocolate. Place on a sheet of baking paper and decorate with your choice of sprinkles.

Leave to dry – or pop in the fridge. Once dry, place in cellophane and tie with a bow (or just eat them, that what I did).
These are not limited to Valentine's day either, they make great treats for birthday parties, baby showers, Christmas and gifts.
