When did you first introduce a pillow to your little one? My little man is a toddler whether I want to accept it or not. He is still in his crib and no attempts to climb out...yet! So we are going to keep him in there as long as possible. I'm also pretty particular about what I let go in his crib. He's old enough now where SIDS isn't as big of a risk, but that doesn't mean it still isn't a concern of mine. So I went back and forth on a pillow for him. Then Hubby asked, "When do they start sleeping with pillows?"
So when I received the opportunity to review the Snugg Organic My Little Big Pillow, I thought well here's my chance to see if he's ready. Of course the first night (and second and third), I kept the baby monitor off of VOX mode so I could see him at all times. But he was fine and I think we made a good choice in toddler pillows.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.
When I was pregnant, I had the idea in my head that we wouldn't use pacifiers. I'm not sure why I didn't like them, it has been so long ago now, but I knew I didn't want my daughter taking one. Well, a many of sleepless nights later, we decided to introduce one.
Tips to Introduce a Pacifier:

Families. We’ve all got one, but these days they’re starting to look less like The Cleavers and gone are the days of the white picket fence. My family was hardly picture perfect growing up. My parents were divorced and I had a hard time getting along with either step-parent. It was just my brother, me, and my half-sister that were there for each other. And then I met my husband's family. They look pretty picture perfect in every way, including taking me in and treating me like one of their own. We fight, but we would do anything for each other and that's really what it's all about.
Grace and Frankie, Netflix's new funny and fearless original comedy featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, is a perfect example of how today’s families can shift, rearrange and blend in unexpected ways. When Grace and Frankie’s husbands leave them after 20 years of marriage - to be with each other - the women find themselves facing a change that they never expected, but they shift their perspective to get through it together with the support of their new blended family and, of course, a sense of humor.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Beech-Nut. I received a free coupon to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
When you think about branching out and giving your baby something besides breast milk or formula, you want the best for them. Some moms make their own baby food, I tried for a while. Making your own baby food can be fun, but sometimes it can be time consuming. That's why I love the new Beech-Nut organic line because I can still give my baby the best without the guilt because it isn't baby food, it' real food for babies.
Beech-Nut believes every baby deserves real food that is bright, bold and unique, and as close to homemade as possible.
