Baby’s Journey AT&T Baby Monitor

This post was sponsored by Baby’s Journey as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary merchandise to facilitate my review.AT&T Smart Sync mhealth Baby Monitor (1 of 1)

You guys, today marks 20 days until my due date! Baby June will be here before we know it. It has been so interesting to me how things have changed since I had Lola in 2011. Technology and baby items have come a long way! When it comes to baby monitors, we have had numerous ones over the years. We thought ours was so cool because it would be silent and only turn on when our babies made noise – instead of constant static in the background. We had to keep our girls’ noise machine in their room on “rushing water” to keep that monitor from picking it up. Suffice it to say that none of our previous baby monitors have compared to the Baby’s Journey Smart Sync monitor!AT&T Smart Sync mhealth Baby Monitor (1 of 1)-2The five inch touch screen is crystal clear and the night vision ensures that I can see everything in Junie’s room, even at night. The app is compatible with iPhone & Android phones, so while Matt’s gone he can check in. I love that I can track all of her feedings, diaper changes, and stats on the monitor, too. That way we can have an accurate record of all of her numbers. Matt is big on stats, and in the past has asked me when the baby last ate and how much…I was so tired that I’d just rattle off an estimated time and amount! I knew baby was asleep and happy, so I didn’t pay much mind to tracking feedings. They have been fat, happy babes, so I am hoping that baby sister follows suit :) AT&T Smart Sync mhealth Baby Monitor (1 of 1)-3The monitor also has wifi (make sure you’re using a secure/encrypted connection…those creeper stories freak me out), and you can buy additional cameras for other areas in your home. You can also share photos straight from the monitor to Facebook or Twitter!AT&T Smart Sync mhealth Baby Monitor (1 of 1)-4The monitors are now available online and in-store at Babies “R” Us locations.

I am getting so excited to meet this baby girl and grateful to have Baby’s Journey help along the way to watch her grow. What is your favorite baby monitor?

Living Well with Nature Made Vitamins

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.Nature Made Vitamins-1Every stage of life is different. Our goals change from year to year based on what is going on in our lives. Obviously, my health and wellness goals this year have been different than in past years. At this time last year, I was busy training and getting ready for the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon! I know some women continue running throughout their entire pregnancies, but I can’t do it past the middle of the second trimester. I miss it so much! I get jealous when I see people out running or Matt goes for a run. For now, it’s walking, prenatal yoga, swimming, and the elliptical. Unfortunately I had to give up the stationary bike because I was riding it like a kid that had outgrown a tricycle, due to the big baby bump in the way! Hopefully at the time of this year’s half marathon, I will be getting ready to welcome baby girl number three into our family :) Nature Made Vitamins-1-2This year’s wellness goals have been all about staying healthy throughout my pregnancy and growing a strong baby girl. So far, so good! Today begins the 30 day countdown to June’s due date. She will be here next month!! I started out my pregnancy like all of the others, completely nauseous and unable to keep anything down. So I took chewable sour gummy vitamins when I could. Then, once the nausea finally passed, I had to switch to swallowable vitamins because the gummies reminded me of being sick and made me gag. Nature Made Vitamins-1-3Off to Walmart to get some Prenatal Vitamins from Nature Made. I grabbed some Fish Oil for Matt, too, and love that they have a burp-less variety! That’s what has kept me away from Fish Oil in the past, the yucky aftershocks throughout the day. He has been taking them and says they live up to their burp-less promise. The Prenatal Vitamins have been excellent and easy to swallow thanks to the gel coating. I am grateful for a vitamin I can easily take to help keep my baby and I healthy and strong! New moms: even after baby is born, you should continue to take your Prenatal Vitamins. Especially if you’re nursing! Baby will get those good nutrients and you will feel better, too. Nature Made at WalmartTo help you with your health and wellness goals, Nature Made has a microsite here where you can sign up to receive Nature Made Daily Boosts…little things that you can do to help your overall wellness.
