Once bitten, twice shy.
Potty training bit me once and I got ready the second time around.
Potty training is a big aspect of parenting and I am dedicating a section of my blog to it.
I’m currently potty training both of my kids- one toddler and one baby. The experience is something to write about.
I’ll share my infant potty training journey with you and why I chose(and will always choose) this route.
My baby is not a big fan of pineapple. So, we are still figuring pineapple baby food out. I remember when my toddler was still teething, she ate pineapples and it made her gums bleed. We weren’t sure if the pineapples made her gums bleed or she bit her lower gums with her two upper brand new teeth.
To play safe, I mixed pineapples with other fruits that we have already introduced to make this puree for my baby.
What you need:
1/2 cup Pineapples diced
1 medium pear- peeled and diced
1 medium Apple – peeled and diced
1/2 cup water
What to do:
Cook all ingredients for 8-10minutes.
Blend to desired consistency.
Re-play is simply children’s dishware manufactured in the U.S.A with recyclyed FDA approved food safe plastics.
I first noticed these bright colored products in the baby section of my local grocery store. I hadn’t seen them before and right way, I searched on Instagram, found them and got some samples. The colors are beautiful, the products are sturdy and my toddler eats with her divided plates almost everyday. In fact, her daddy asked me yesterday if that’s the only plate she has…lol
But last week, I had an experience that really prompted this elaborate review.
I was doing the dishes, forgot a re-play spoon in the sink hole, turned on the Insinkerator and heard a crackling sound- oh my world! I was sure that I was going to pick up plastic crumbles from the sink hole.
To my surprise, the spoon remained intact with a little scratch. Now, that’s a strong plastic. How would I have explained to my toddler that her “green spoon” is broken?
We also love the snack pods/snack stacks. They are convenient and simple to use.
These products are easy to find. You can find them in Walmart, HEB, on their website(https://replay.com) and amazon as well.
They also have gift cards- perfect for a baby shower gift.
Do you use these products? Please feel free to share your experience.
I hope you had an awesome holiday. It’s back to school week. Here is a little humor…lol
My toddler is currently obsessed with watermelon and cucumber stars because I offered her some. I can handle it. Here is a starry fruity plate to keep the Christmas spirit alive. We have watermelon dipped in chobani blueberry greek yogurt, cucumber, and green grapes.
