A nightmare weekend

Where do I even being?! We moved out of Az and to CO about a week ago. We have moved/lived his once before when my oldest was 1. At that time we had never head of something called altitude sickness. We went camping the first day or two once we got to CO. We went on something called pikes peak and its a big one. Aiden was breastfeeding at the time, so I knew something was wrong when he would feed and then it would all come right back out. Needless to say we got him off the mountain and called a urgent care and they told us all about altitude sickness. Aiden was find within a few hours of being off the big mountain.

Any how we knew that this might happen again when we moved again. Not like we where going to go up that mountain again but it is still a higher altitude then what they where used to. So Noah was acting a little sick we thought it was just that. Then a few days later he would wake up crying.... well that was when we saw the molars. We just kinda brushed it off and gave him some meds to help with the pain. Then the scare started. Thursday he slept all day and would not play peekaboo. If you knew my son you would know his all time favorite game is peekaboo. He would also sleep all day long. He woke up only to cry and then back to sleep again. Once again I thought it was from him teething. He did have a little cough but my kids drool to the back of their mouth. I decided that if he was like this one more day then I would take him to a dr/urgent care. So here I am Friday morning, my mother in law is here and Noah still acting sick. So we fine out where we can take him and off we go. My 3 kids, my mother in law and me, off to the urgent care. Once we got there they took his pulse ox and it was at 70. In case you don't know, you should be at 90-100. And his heart rate was at 200! Again that should be at 100.

Wrapy Babywrap

When you have a baby life does not stop. Dinner needs to get made, housework is waiting, but when baby is fussy you have to stop and make them happy. Babywearing is a way you can keep doing the things in life that have to done but keep baby close and happy. Babywearing allows you to bond with baby and have your hands free. I know babywearing has saved the day may times over Chris' life. He just turned three and still has days he goes up.

If you are new to babywearing it is hard to know where to start. I like to suggest to new moms to try out a stretchy wrap, like Wrapy babywrap. A stretchy baby wrap is comfortable for baby and mommy and because you wrap and tie the wrap on they work for any body type and they grow with your baby. This gives you the most bang for your buck.

Check out the video bellow for more info on Wrapy Babywrap.

For more info on how to tie a stretchy baby wrap check out my how to video on this past blog post. 

The Wrapy Babycarier is a dark blue wrap made of 95% Cotton and 5% spandex. I find that because of that 5% spandex the wrap is softer, cooler, and thinner but stronger then other style stretchy wraps. 

It comes in a great storage bag with a drawstring top.

Good from Birth to 35lbs (trust me I test this weight limit)

I don't have a tiny baby at home right now so this baby doll had to take the place of a newborn. The wrap gives your baby that snug feeling they love, its just like when you swaddle a baby but keeping them close to your heart. The wrap can even be pulled up to give your newborn more head support.

When you wear the wrap it crosses in the back, the fabric can be gathered up or worn wider to find the fit that feels best for you. Depending on your body type and size the wrap can be tied in front or back.

Yes that is my 30lbs 3 year old in the wrap! As you can see is his supported and comfy. He was more worried about still getting to watch his favorite cartoon.

Chris was loving being close to my face and tried to feed me a toy key. He leaned back as far as he could but was still secure in the wrap. 

Follow Wrapy on Facebook and share pictures of your happy baby in your wrap.

Get your own Wrapy from HERE.

Special Thanks to Wrapy for my sample wrap, I will be using this wrap to teach new moms in the local babywearing group how to wear their baby.

Yoga Spinner By Think Fun

ThinkFun created another fun family friendly game. The Yoga Spinner is great for ages 5 and up.  The goal of the game is to get one card from each color card, white, green, red and blue. You spin and whatever color you land on you pull a card and do the pose on the card, if you can do and hold the pose for 10 seconds you get to keep the card. The white card is a two person pose, all people playing are to do this pose when a white card is pulled. If you land on a smile you can steal a card, a sad face you loose a card. Question mark is opponents' choice and the joker is players choice.

Memory Yoga Game

Do you want a fun way to get your kids working their brain and mind? Check out this fun memory game by ThinkFun. This game is great for kids ages 3 and up.

Stainless Steel Water Bottle

I always talk about how important it is to drink water. One of the ways it is easy to get your water in is to keep a great water bottle handy. For me  glass bottle or stainless steel bottle give the best clean flavor. Glass and a toddler is not always a great mix, they can get broken and can be heavy. Stainless steel is a great way to have  clean flavor without the worry of breaking.

Stop getting your hair pulled out with Breastfeeding necklace and giveaway

I don't know about you but my little one loves to pull on things when he is breastfeeding. Most of the time this means my hair. I have tired holding his hand and while this is sweet and nice, most time he will not hold onto my hand for long. So how do you get your baby to stop pulling your hair? Well one mama came up with a cute idea. How about a fun necklace that baby can hold onto instead?!
