Dream Team Pets Review

I'm so excited to tell y'all about the Dream Team Pets! Dream Team Pets is so much more than a bedtime toy-- it's an innovative kid's sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night's sleep. 
If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves! 


Dream Team Pets is such a unique idea! You get to choose between a Playful Puppy, a Mighty Lion, or a Magical Cat. Z has been really into cats lately so I just knew she would love the pink "Magical Cat." Z doesn't really have nightmares but she does need constant comfort throughout the night so I was excited to see how this would work for her. She is on the younger side of the age range for this clever invention (she's about to turn 3) but she is actually really enjoying it.



I do think it has been helping her sleep for longer periods of time because she now has something to "protect" her, and she gets to put stickers on the certificate for her pet in morning as an added bonus. Its a goal she really likes achieving. Even though this hasn't worked flawlessly for us yet, it has worked a little so I just know this would great be for an older child! I'm excited to how it continues to work for Z as she gets older.

Hoodsbee Review

I'm so excited to tell y'all about Hoodsbees today! Hoodsbee is an innovative hoodie that transforms into a plush friend or a plush friend that transforms into a hoodie! With Hoodsbee, there are just so many options... This unique patented technology allows your little one to carry their travel plush buddy, put it on when it is cold, fold it back up into a plush and use it as a head pillow for when they are tired. It's as easy as 1,2,3. Fold, roll and snap. Now, not only do you have a pillow and a travel companion, but you also have a nicely wrapped up hoodie that is easy to store or travel with.

Photo provided by Hoodsbee
Hoodsbee was actually created when the design team at HLL design was trying to come up with a new kind of character hoodie jacket that could have a rolled up function into the hood.  After seeing the shape it created, they added arms, legs, eyes and ears to the hood to make it look more like a plush toy.  But it was still just a jacket rolled into the hood.  They found that by pulling the sides tightly together and fastening them in a specific spot, along with the front of the hood being fastened as well, that it kept everything nice and compact, tight and clean looking. And thus, hoodsbee was created.


There are 8 different Hoodsbee Characters to choose from! My daughter is really into owls right now so I knew she would absolutely love Milo the Owl. Milo the Owl is made of Pink Woobie with Purple 2x1 Cotton/spandex rib cuffs and hem band. This hoodie is so much cuter than I thought it would be and it is soooo soft and warm. Z absolutely loves it! Its really easy to transform from hoodie to pillow and back. I do want to mention that you should probably order a size up, I'm so glad that I did! I ordered a 4T and it fits like a 3T.


Isn't it so cute?! Overall, we don't have any complaints about this hoodie pal! It's going to be a sad day when Z grows out of it but we will probably continue to use Milo as a pillow and friend. We may just need to buy a different character in a bigger size when that happens!

Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap Review and Coupon Code

One of the most important things for a nursing mom is a good wardrobe. You need to have good nursing bras, nursing shirts, and a Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap. I really wish I would've had this when I was nursing a newborn, its awesome! Honestly, with the discovery of the Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap, your search for the perfect nursing cover is over.


Manufactured with love from organic bamboo modal with spandex for comfort and shape, the lightweight, breathable fabric allows you and your baby to stay cool and stylish. It provides complete coverage while you're nursing. And when you are done, it instantly transforms into 12 more great styles that you will want to wear. I love that you can also use this as a baby carrier cover, I never would've thought of that!

Z and I have both never been a fan of nursing covers. She always hated being hidden and she felt like it was suffocating her. I always thought they were so uncomfortable to set up and use-- I even had one that had a wire thing that never worked correctly. Needless to say, we barely used nursing covers but I really wish I would've had this wrap when she was little. Its light and soft, I think she would've actually loved having it against her skin and I actually don't mind wearing it!


I love that the wrap doesn't fall forwards or gape at the sides, which means you don't accidentally expose yourself. The tiny poppers ensure that it keeps you covered when Baby is wriggling, and it drapes beautifully over you and baby... whatever your size. Z absolutely loves using it because she thinks of it as a tent and she loves how soft it is! I used it for the first time when the maintenance guys in my building were in my apartment fixing something. It was so great to have too because once she heard them start working, she unlatched quickly right in front of one of the workers and even though she shot up like a bolt, I was completely covered so the worker didn't get to see my ladies. ;)

Although for the most part I love it, I do have a few complaints about the Boho Mama Nursing Wrap as well. Firstly, I hate the color and its the only color it comes in at the moment. BUT I heard from a little birdy that next month, they are coming out with a new one in a really pretty dark purple! Sign me up for that! Seriously, add some different colors and cuter buttons and it would have no competition in the nursing cover market. And secondly, its a little on the expensive side. I personally think it would be worth it, especially when they add different colors and designs but I completely understand if people think its too expensive. HOWEVER, if you hurry, you can save 52.5% off the full retail price until the end of October or until current stocks run out. This gives a price of $37.90, which can be obtained by entering the coupon code CHW2CWMW at the checkout.


Overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I love the Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap. Its incredibly soft and really thin, it folds up really small and doesn't crease. We actually use the wrap almost every time we nurse now because Z prefers to use the wrap rather than nurse without it!

You can buy your own Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap on Amazon! Don't forget to use the coupon code CHW2CWMW for 52.5%! Valid until the end of October!
