Closer to Nature Orthodontic Pacifiers

Both of the girls were very picky on what pacifier they used.  We had a bunch of them laying around

pictures provided by tommee tippee.
that they did not like.  Tommee tippee was one that my youngest preferred. tommee tippee is announcing its new pacifier that is now available at Target, Babies R Us, and Buy Buy Baby. The new Pacifier set sells for about $6.99. The new pacifier has some great new features that I know my girls would have loved.
The new pacifiers are similar to tommee tippee's signature bottle line and use a nipple that is similar to the Mother's breast. They are specially designed for baby acceptance from the first attempt. They feature a symmetrical orthodontic shape and a traditional shield style with fun modern designs.  tommee tippee pacifiers are made from BPA and phthalate-free silicone. They are available in three sizes 0-3 months, 0-6 months an 6-18 months. The pacifiers come in both boy and girl colors and re dishwasher/sterilizer safe.

I received both a boy color and a girl color, I love the different sizes my girls used to gag on the pacifier if they were too big.  They are equally adorable I love how soft the nipple is it feels softer than some of the ones he girls had. The curved shape would fit baby's face comfortably and I love that the ring lays flat so that its not bulky.

Meal Measure

This week I want to talk about portion control. Like most people I should be watching my portion sizes but I don't. Its time consuming to measure everything out and I forget exactly how big a deck of cards is. When I found Meal Measure I knew I had found a great tool. Meal Measure is portion control right on your plate. Its basically a ring that has measured spots for fruits/ vegetables, starches, and meats. 
 You lay it on top of your plate, place your food in each of the labeled spots then lift it off your plate. It gives you perfect portions each and every time.  Each cutout is 1 cup and has a 1/2 cup line so you can choose how much you want to serve on each plate. Its great for those of us on diets and people like my mom who are border line diabetic and control there glucose levels with what they eat. It really helps her remember how much she should be eating of each food group. It takes the guess work out of making her plate.  Meal Measure is dietitian recommended and follows the My Plate serving sizes. Its simple and super easy to use its comes in some great colors and the holes are big enough that I can wash them easily. You can rinse it with warm soapy water or place it in the top rack of your dishwasher. You can find Meal Measure HEAR  it sells for $12.98 and comes in Blue, Red, Yellow, and White. I received the Blue one and I love the color.
