Help Your Cold with HydraSense – Enter to Win!

We know that winter is synonyms with getting colds and we wait (impatiently) for the warmer weather to come thinking that cold season is ending, but with the onset of the higher numbers in the weather forecast the jackets, gloves and hats come off and just when you think cold season is over, the viruses re-emerge.

I have being using HydraSense since my oldest was a little baby. He got his first cold when he was 8 months old and naturally I panicked (he was my first what do you expect) because the poor little guy was so stuffed up and MISERABLE (which is an understatement) so I went into my trusty bag of samples that I got at a baby show and there were the many samples of HydraSense Easy Dose.

I, by no means am going to tell you he loved it because he HATED it, he screamed his head off when I put the drops in and sucked whatever was up there clogging the kids nose making him not able to eat, but I can tell you that the moment after I picked him up, put a bottle in his mouth, he realized he could actually breathe he was happy again and the cycle  continued with every cold. Now comes my second who got his first cold when he was only 3 weeks old (thanks to his older brother who was learning about sharing) and has had a cold every single month of his life .. actually! This kid hates the drops just as much as his brother especially now that I have added the nasal aspirator to the routine, but there is instant relief (that I can promise you) and lots of smiles .. what can be better than that?! Most importantly, it is made with 100% undiluted natural-source seawater.

HydraSense has something for everyone 
•             Easy dose (newborns and infants) – these little tubes makes it clean and easy to administer the drops
•             Nasal aspirator starter kit (newborns and infants)
•             Gentle mist  (age 2+)
•             Medium Stream (age 2+)
•             To Go (age 2+) – great for moms on the go to carry in their purses
•             Congestion relief kids (age 6+)
•             Congestion relief (age 12+) – this is what I use every day


For those that are prone to getting sinus infections (yup thats me), I highly recommend using their Congestion Relief Spray. It has a great pump that really helps hydrate the sinuses and reduce inflammation.

For the Teething Babies Out There – Enter to Win!

Let me just get this out of the way … TEETHING SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and those that are going through it completely understand; the crankiness, the constant tears out of nowhere, the fussiness and well I will stop there.

I don’t know if it’s one of those things that you try to forget about after the first child or if I just straight up forget thanks to baby brain, but I seriously can’t remember my first born ravenously chewing on my finger as if I hadn’t fed him in days and just handed him food for the first time (not to say he didn’t because I am sure he did). My poor index finger has been getting the brunt of it.

Yes there are a ton of teethers on the market, so which one to buy? Well I can tell you that I have purchased a ridiculous amount of teethers over the years to try to help soothe my kids during the teething stage and though I have found some that have marginally helped, I have still been on the hunt for other options that are even better and i’ve FOUND it (nope they didn’t find me, I found them). I am a big fan and so is my little one

Innobaby Teether

What I love:
– they are extremely light weight so it’s easy for the baby to hold
– they all have unique shapes which allow for babies to reach all parts of the mouth for gentle massaging
– the material is very soft and very flexible unlike a lot of teethers which are a thicker, harder material which makes it hard to chew
– Dishwasher safe
– BPA/Phthalate/PVC/Lead FREE
– Lots of great designs
– I put the grape teether in the fridge for added relief

Innobaby Teether
